Why do you hate Twilight?

I think this info-graphic from Geeks are Sexy sums it up about right…

What REALLY get’s me is this.  When a male adult over the age of 40 drools over a hot young girl/woman (18 -25), he’s considered a dirty old man, a skeez, a cradle robber, etc.

But when a woman over the age of 40 drools over a hot young stud (18-25) she’s considered a cougar and is actually more acceptable in public?  If you saw a bunch of 40 year old guys running around screaming and shouting about how they are soooo in love with the latest teeny-bopper diva of the day, they’d be called child molesters, perverts, you name it.  But when a bunch of over 40 women get together and scream and holler and swoon over Edward from Twilight, it’s completely acceptable.  What is wrong with this picture?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not endorsing 40 year old men fantasizing over 18 year old girls.  Cause believe me, they are girls, not women.  It’s fine when you’re in your 20’s, it’s even semi-ok when you’re in your 30’s (to a certain point), but come on guys/girls, when you hit the 40’s?  It’s time to give it up and start looking at something closer to your age group because unless you’re a billionaire and look like you’re 20 with killer abs and a (to quote an old saying here) Rock Hudson face (not specifically Rock Hudson, but you get the idea), you’re not getting anywhere with them.  And ladies/women PLEASE stop the Twilight Edward madness…let that for the tweener girls and 20 somethings…

Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled madness.  🙂
