I'm still processing this idea.
A student just told me that Stephenie Meyer, the woman who probably had drunken sex with some guy and went through his comic book collection and video tapes of vampire porn and later remembered the sex after getting dumped and decided to take out her anger and disappointment in her novel Twilight, is a Mormon.
Yes, she went to Brigham Young University and lived in Arizona, the whole bit. Okay, back to the concept... Ms. Meyer is a Mormon. So the student decided to boycott her books and the movie, thinking she could've supported Prop 8. I asked if she was sure of that notion and she said no, but she thinks that most Mormons are hateful to us.
Afterwards, I start to think about my student's stance. Could it be hogwash or actually have some merit? I don't know, but I'm a little curious about this authoress now.
