Personal Quote: "If I wasn't meant to fly, I wouldn't have these wings."
April Fool's Day is supposed to be fun.
DA members shouldn't get so upset about DA's prank. XD It was a harmless, happy joke. They always change the signatures and icons back, so it's not even any trouble to the site members. A lot of people look forward to April Fool's Day for website pranks. It's just one day on the website; if you're mad they changed your stuff because you paid, start a petition so that paying members can opt in to seeing the April Fool's prank, but part of the glory of the prank is that it's sitewide and thus nondiscriminatory. I doubt people are going to judge you on your views from glancing at your avatar or signature for one day when they notice that everyone else has the same thing on what happens to be April Fool's day. Seems a little paranoid to me.

I've seen several people say they were offended because it was Twilight which they consider to be sexist. XD Well maybe PETA was offended that we had mudkips last year, which is utilizing animal labor for human benefit. We are exploiting the mudkips! Oh no! Or how about the fact that it is anecdotal to a joke from 4chan- we are stealing other people's material! Worse, the version of the joke I heard was supposed to be creepy and imply that someone was trying to sleep with a middle school student. DA was promoting child molestation!!!!

XD Sorry, I just think this was ridiculous.

Twilight wasn't sexist. XP Girl vampires were just as strong as guy vampires. A lot of them had special powers. Edward encouraged Bella to go to college; though she didn't actually go in the series, Bella was still excited about potentially going to college when she settled down. Bella was given the opportunity to argue her point to be turned, even though Edward didn't want her to be changed. She created and agreed to terms of her own free will. As for needing Edward to protect her, of course she'll need help to defend herself when she's human. She's up against VAMPIRES! XD I think it's logical that they would probably kill her if she was on her own, and Edward was usually there when she was in trouble because he loved her so much.

The point of feminism is female empowerment - which is the ability to CHOOSE what you want to do. It doesn't mean that every woman should automatically learn how to change a flat tire, or how to shoot an AK-47 with accuracy. It wasn't meant to turn women into masculine fighting machines. The point of it is to give women the opportunity to do so if they want to. If you are female and choose not to do something because YOU do not want to do it, then that is STILL supporting feminism, even if you decide to be a housewife or knit for a living (or even just for fun!).

Sorry for the rant, but I just couldn't believe that people turned a harmless joke into an ploy on sexism. XD If you want to read something sexist, how about the Decameron? Then come back and tell me Twilight was bad.

PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE POST. IT'S SO DANG TRUE* 1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you. 2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way. 3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. 4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you. 5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep. 6. You mean the world to someone. 7. If not for you, someone may not be living. 8. You are special and unique. 9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. 10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. 11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world. 12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it. 13. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks. 14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know. 15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great. Add this as a comment to ten of your friends tonight and at midnight your true love will find you. Something good will happen to you at 2:25 tomorrow. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. Whoever breaks this chain letter will be cursed with 10 relationship problems for the next ten years tag ur it!! this is so scary!!! send this to 15 ppl in the next 143 min. and then press F6 and your crushes name will appear in big letters!! it is so scary because it works
