Poor Bella

Even I am defending her now? Good lord. Read this funny article about how people pick on Bella being a lousy role model only because she’s a girl. This article points out all the terrible male role models in movies.

This is my favorite part:

The Jedi (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith): As a staunch defender of the prequels, I must admit that the Jedi are all complete and total imbeciles. The biggest shock of the new prequels was that the legendary Jedi turned out to be a group of pompous, pretentious, self-defeating, useless idiots who couldn’t smell a galaxy-threatening conspiracy that was hatching right underneath their noses. They are also mean and petty. Yoda initially refuses to teach Anakin Skywalker because young Skywalker has the gall to miss his mother. Thirteen-years later, when Anakin tries to confide in Yoda that he fears for the life of his wife and unborn child, Yoda’s advice is basically ‘people die, s**t happens, be one with the Force.’
