Is Twilight Anti-Feminist?

Whilst searching the web for juicy gossip about Twilight I came across a few people who are opposed to the phenomenon. Yes can you believe it? Some people don't like it. I was shocked. A small minority of people out there thinks that Twilight is anti-feminist. Well here's my opinion on the matter, get a grip people it's just a story, you know, fiction? It is in no way intended to destroy girl power. The things that you are describing as anti feminist, are in fact just old fashioned. If you pick up any of the old classic romance novels you will see similar themes occurring.
The story of Bella and Edward's love is reminiscent of a different era. When chivalry and honour were not dead and women were delicate, pure and wanted to be taken care of. Forgive me for being a traitor to the modern woman but sometimes I like to be taken care of, it does not mean I cannot fend for myself. Surely most women like to be swept of their feet every once in a while. I only wish that chivalry and good old-fashioned manners would make a come back, does that make me anti-feminist? What do you think?Sharing is Good
