- Hypothetical Question
- July 4th, 2011
If I had a child, would I rather they watch Twilight or True Blood?
It depends on their age. I wouldn't want my child watching Twilight at any age, because it glamorizes unequal relationships that I don't think are very healthy. Edward is controlling, etc, I don't have to rehash that, and Jacob just can't be Bella's friend, it's all or nothing. And then he falls in love with her daughter because he can't have the real thing. Ew.
As for True Blood, probably 16 or over, and that's mostly because of the violence. I think violence should be more age-restricted instead of sex. This country's views on sex and violence are messed up. A movie will get an R rating if two guys kiss, but a movie with explosions and people being shot, etc will get a PG-13.
Harry Potter can be watched/read at any age.
