Alice Well, most people hate it because of one of the following reasons:
(a). Bella is a Mary Sue
(b). Edward is a stalker
(c). They have an abusive relationship that's heavily romanticized
(d). Bram Stoker is rolling over in his grave because of the sparkles
(e). It condones pedophilia
(f). Purple prose
(g). All of the Above

It's okay to like it... This is why the rest of us don't/
JasmynWasFlowers Actually, it's not that people just 'don't understand it'.
People can have an amazing understanding of certain things and still not like them.
It's just an opinion, let people have theirs.

As for actual reasons, I think Alice listed most of the prominent ones above.
Some other, slightly less justifiable ones, are that they dislike the fanbase or the movie, and dislike Twilight because of that.

Those are all just opinions though, and it's okay to have opinions.
RbbieFrah You who love twilight know that it is a true work of art full if love , imagination and inspiration.
Just go on loving it .
As to the petty timid people that hate it . They have little or no imagination and their attention is confined to their pathetic boring lives . They are afraid of twilight but because of their ego they are too proud to admit it so rather than admit that they are afraid and awed by twilight they come up with whatever petty reasons they can to cover up the fact that they are just plain scared .
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson

Twilights hints at what can happen if humans reach their full potential. Being able to see into the future , being able to read minds being able to leap great distances and zoom at super speeds . It frightens the petty timid “rabbit people “ who are aware of no higher destiny that to eat and breed . But you who love twilight are consciously or semi consciously aware that while our bodies are limited our souls are limitless and we can do all these things and much more . These “rabbit people” do not feel the yearning to soar that our souls feel . They do not feel suffocated and disgusted with the run of mudane life and do not yearn for more like we do . Rather they are deeply afraid of that “more” admire jealous and hateful of those who are not afraid and don’t mind hurting them. ( think of the bully boy in August Rush who called him a freak and tried to get him to admit that he did not hear the music) Such are the people who hate twilight and jeer at it .
There is a Book I want to recommend to all the people that love twilight and are hurt that others hate it and spread false rumors about it to cover up the fact that they are scared of it . Try THIS book:
The Book of Mirdad by Mikail Niamy . It has a Good reads 4.43 star rating and it tells the different between “rabbit people” or “chicken people “ and people whose souls have become eagles . The Introduction to the Book of Mirdad states in large type :
THIS IS THE BOOK OF MIRDAD
A LIGHT HOUSE AND HAVEN FOR THOSE WHO YEARN TO OVERCOME
LET OTHERS BEWARE OF IT
If you are a yearner ( and I think those who love twilight are) you will find The book f Mirdad will help you .Its about unveiling God in man .
But wither you read Mirdad or not , Know that if you love twilight you are one of the eagle people that the frightened but proud rabbit people jeer at . You are like the butterfly about to hatch out of the cacoon with visions of flying in you imagination . They are the crawling caterpillars with no vision and no imagination always afraid of ceasing to exist as a caterpillar .They are like rabbits in their suffocating dens to afraid to venture out while you love to soar . So just soar high and leave them far behind .
Nadia Beck Though I think "Hate" is a rather strong word, I do not exactly like it either. I just don't like that she is willing to do anything for her boyfriend, and shows a bad picture of what love is.
Its fine to like it though! Reading is a good thing no matter what you read!
