Shorthand for all the feelings that they're not ready to deal with yet
Stephen King says Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. An outraged Twilight fan replies.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Flea, behold!, an immortal instance of the art of rhetoric.
I think he's such a JERK! I'd like to say other things but we can't go swearing on here. What a moron! I haven't read his books, but what the heck?! He goes dissing Stephanie Meyer- I HAD to read all of her books b/c they were sooo good- and I'm 27- i have a complete life- the fact that he's like 'she writes pg material for hs girls" is such krap! What a donkey! Stephanie is OBVIOUSLY talented. WHo the heck asked for his opinion in the first place and why would he think he's qualified to critique her just b/c he's an author. What a limited mind he has!!! I feel like never picking up one of his dumb books! He is a machovanistic PIG! I had respect for him before b/c he's written so many best selling books but PUHLEASE! He's totally classless. He writes different types of books- why would he even comment on a totally differ type of book? I even went on his website and the way he answers his readers questions- he does it SoOO ARROGANTLY! AND he doesn't even have facebook or myspace or even a section on his website besides stupid Message forums (which I AM NOT GOING TO SIGN UP to just leave him a comment) so that we could leave him a COMMENT about his stupid CRITIQUES because he DOESN'T CARE WHAT THE PUBLIC THINKS (just look at the way he answers his fans' questions)! I could say more nasty things about him, but why even bother wasting my own personal time!

"Like you KNOW and STUFF!"
I'm sorry, the mental image forming is the female equivalent of the ponytailed bald guy who lives in moms basement and works at the comic book store part time where he insults "luzers" who come in a buy things.

Stephenie Meyer is actually fulfilling a valuable social function; she is helping an entire generation of young men weed out the mating undesirables.
In the olden days we didn't have such clear-cut instant deal-killer questions. No easy way of identifying the developmentally arrested 13-year-old brain in the 27-year-old body. Now we do.
So thanks, Stephenie.
