Thanks for sending me this babe! There are things i don’t like about it though.
“Edward also displays many stereotypical characteristics of abusers. First, one of his hallmark characteristics is his control over Bella and his attempts to isolate her from others.” If you read the books and also watch the movies it was never him that wanted to isolate her she did that on her own. Okay i’ll give you maybe the control thing but a lot of the time it’s cause she was a fucking dumb ass and he was trying to make sure she didn’t die.
“He proposes to her when he knows she’s not ready and refuses to listen to her reasons for delaying the marriage.” Okay yeah this makes him a douche for pressuring her but like it doesn’t make him abusive
Like okay yes Edward was fucking creepy but i don’t think the relationship was ever abusive it was definitely extremely unhealthy and they probably shouldn’t be together but never abusive This whole thing is putting the blame on him but like in the second one he even left inorder to make sure her life wasn’t in danger anymore. If anyone it’s Bella who made the relationship the way it was.
