Today I want to share a story with you and ask for your help to get word out via a PSA about a problem growing rampant in our communities: Cyber Bullying.
Have you ever been cyber bullied? After Victoria & Lizzie dressed you up and called you Claudia did they post the pictures online to their xanga pages? Does TomStu post in Perez Hilton’s comments and tell everyone that you’re a ‘playa’ when you haven’t returned his calls in awhile? Has Justin Bieber made a Bubble Tweet calling his young fans to hand in their Rob Pattinson fancards because of that one day you almost trended higher than him on twitter? If so, you will feel for the main character in this story:
Many, many moons ago (about 3 weeks to be exact), a young, slim, 26 year old married girl with two cats went to New York City to spend time with her college roommate & see some friends she met through the Star Trek blog she ran. Some of the girls posed for a picture together outside of the studios of Timmy Gallon, where they were waiting to see the hot young star of the Star Trek series, Bob Paddleston.
Imagine this girl’s surprise when 3 weeks later within 5 minutes of each other on a random, non-important Thursday, she receives a text & an email from two separate friends alerting her to “Mean things” and “photoshopped images” from that very group picture that she & her new friends took together. And imagine the SHOCK and HORROR when she read the slanderous things being said about her on twitter and in the comments of a blog:
Rob, I am going to say something now that might be shocking to you. I am that girl. You are Bob Paddleston. And… I was called a….
Oh there were other things said too- stuff about my weight, my face, my love of fried foods & greasy chips (they are my weakness- how did they know?) and how I need botox at age 26 but none of that bothered me. What I have the biggest problem with, and why I am asking for your help to SPREAD the WORD about the DANGERS of CYBER BULLING is the SLANDER and LIBEL and DEFAMATION of my character by labeling me a…..
Here is an example of some of the slanderous words said towards me in the biggest case of cyber bulling the world has ever seen:
@probably fans Too late, NONSTEN, the gig is up. Don’t try to pretend it’s a fake pic. We know what you look like now, and so does Summit. Now they have monikers, copies of the death threats against Kristen, AND faces to put behind the names.
Wait… Summit cares that me & some friends went to see Jimmy Fallon & took a picture?
gretel Well, I’m taking the pic of Taytay down off my dartboard and replacing it with the pic of the nonstens. Wish I knew who was who so I could determine my bullseye. Right now, it’s Tay’s abs. LOL!
I am the one in the black & white coat close to the middle. You can label me “BOTOX NEEDER.” Also, Tay’s abs? Are you 12?
@probablyfans The NONSTEN idiots posted the pic on their (private) site as a get-together picture. Too bad for them there are plenty of us who are nonsten members and only there to record info in case it needs to be sent to Summit or to Kristen’s management.
After the jump, I’ve included a few other pictures of myself to send along to Summit & Kristen’s management so they know which one I am when they come after me for absolutely nothing:
to 26 Lux Too late darling. Throwing those hags under the bus? Are you friggin´kiddin´me? You´ve called Kristen w hore or equivalent or even worse, posted pics to ridicule her, so you nonstens should be treated as what you are: mentally unstable old ignorant whales. What´s so wrong about that? You invented hate in the Twilight then healthy (and young) fandom, now you´re getting it back. KARMA is the name of it. the world is not guilty of your unhappiness.
I have no words for you, instead I will provide you with another picture of myself looking devilish:
But it’s not just me- I am not the only one being Cyber-Bullied
Yes, you are right. But this people on the photo call Kristen fat, ugly and WTF. I thought they were goodlooking, young fashionpeople and now? They are looking like a lot of american people and they bashing a 19 year old girl..making death threats. That is WTF!
THIS GIRL BULLIES AMERICANS. Now THAT is WTF!
Instead of boycotting Eclipse lets make a an effort to not respond to any of the haters on this board. You can tell it is them by the atrocious use of the English language and the horrible spelling.
THIS GIRL BULLIES THOSE WITH DYSLEXIA AND INTERNTIONALS
I honestly wish those grown women psychological help. They mustve been bullied so prob why they do it to Kristen
YES! YES!! I was bullied!!! By you and your friends!
Rob- you can see this is unacceptable. You know I have nothing to do with that nonsten-craziness. You know I don’t need Botox, (yet). And YOU of all people would NEVER judge someone for her love of fried deliciousness and processed cheese! Help me Spread the Word about Cyber Bullying, Rob! Get the word out that it is NOT okay to EVER call someone a NONSTEN (Unless, of course, they are a nonsten) What’s next? Is someone going to call me a ROBSTEN-shipper next week!? Oh the horror!!!!
Now it’s time to get serious:
I know there is a big group of you who read LTT & LTR and don’t really get involved with the fandom much outside of the occasional trip over to Twilight moms to discuss the newest style in twilight diapers, so for today’s post & this Tweed-serious section to make sense, let me catch you up real quick:
- Stephanie Meyer wrote some books and people bonded over their love for them
- A subpar movie version was made & half the fandom fell in love with the may be or may not be love of the lead actors while the other half did not
- Some of those who did not fall in love began to hate those who loved them & resent their very existence
- Both sides played on LTT’s forum for awhile until drama ensued, big blow ups happened on both ends and Robstenlove.com & nonstop.com were formed. [UC EDIT: I mean nonsten.com obvviousssly] Moon & UC breathed a sigh of relief that the crazy was no longer our responsibility
- A girl named Delaney is ‘shipped by the Robsten-shippers. Nonsteners hate her. Delaney is sued by Summit for leaking Eclipse photos. Nonsteners rejoice. Robsteners lash out in attacks, resulting in mistaking a group photo of a sweet group of girls who met up in NYC as Nonsteners and saying some really awful things about them, most of which I didn’t include here
Robsteners (and I don’t mean the ones who like Rob & Kristen together and end it there) & Nonsteners (and I don’t mean the ones who don’t like the idea of R&K and end it there)? I’m talking about the people whose lives depend on the proving the validity of Robsten or the pursuit of showing its falseness. You are crazy. BOTH of you are. EQUALLY as crazy. You’ve made each other CRAZIER. And I have every right to say that because I’ve seen it first-hand. I’ve been dragged into your crazy on BOTH ends. And I have never been more embarrassed to see/read about/ hear about grown-up women acting WORSE than children. You’ve divided the fandom & dragged others down with you.
Rob & Kristen would not want to be ANY of our friends. We are ALL crazy in our own way because we care WAY TOO MUCH about their lives. We know WAY TOO MUCH about their lives. That goes for Moon & I as well. We acknowledge that. We don’t pretend that Rob would read what we say and want to become our lover. Or that Kristen would see through our sarcasm & say “Wow, they really love me and want to be my bff for life”
But to Nonstens: Rob would NOT like you because the reality is, he and Kristen are at the VERY LEAST good friends and you are so incredibly mean to her. And the fact that you spend so much of your time trying to prove they’re not together is ridiculous. And to Robstens: You think you are “protecting Rob & Kristen” by openly and publicly discussing VERY PRIVATE DETAILS of their lives. Yet they would NOT like you if they met you because you’ve speculated, spilled private details & invaded their right to have private lives outside of the limelight.
Both Moon & I have good friends that love the idea of Rob & Kristen together as well as friends who would rather see Justin Bieber make out with Miley Cyrus than hear about Robsten. And the fact that I’m writing this today, the fact that somehow I got brought into this mess, is just ridiculous. Moon & I started LTT & LTR because we didn’t want to get our news from somewhere that seemed vanilla & existed to please the masses. So we started a place where we could be honest. And I’m aware that being honest today is going to piss some people off. But how about instead of getting mad at ME or at Moon for being honest & finally saying what we and the majority of the fandom are really thinking, we remember back to why we started with this fandom. Let’s remember the books that Stephanie Meyers wrote and what brought us together in the first place.
I’ve seen friendships divided over this issue- real life friends that fight about a celebrity- may be or may not be- couple. That is sad. Stephanie wouldn’t want this. People have gone on WITCHHUNTS to out people and label them as something they are not. This isn’t what this fandom is about. This fandom is about people coming together to have fun, to laugh, to have a shared experience over a beloved story.
Let’s get back to that. Let’s not forget why we all logged onto our computers today to read our favorite Twilight sites.
And if you are going to continue to hate (and not admit it IS hate)….just leave me the f*ck out of your drama….and stop posting pictures you don’t know the context of.
PS: To the beautiful girls in that picture with me that I have the pleasure of knowing, hearts to you all xoxo
Today’s crazy taken from the comments on Ted Casablanca’s blog post which had very little to do with Robsten. Beautifully done- Devil horns picture made by @Alice_InTwiLand (who will lovingly agree to pay my therapy bills after we have a little chat today)
Last night I captured Mr. Choice talking about Robsten vs. Nonsten on video:
