First off, I am tired of your condescension to me. "I just wish you could see that" who are you kidding??
Now, to the matter at hand. Dismantling someone's truck, kidnapping them, and just generally thinking that you have that amount of control over anyone else's actions is WRONG.
Jacob kissed Bella. He didn't ask permission, and she didn't want him to. Guess what?? It happens. all. the. time. People make silly mistakes. In kissing her he showed what? That he wanted to kiss her? That he was in love with her? Gosh, you're right. I am just so wrong here.
It's not like he raped her guys. He kissed her. I'd rather have someone kiss me than take away basic rights from me and think that's perfectly okay.
So, even though you know why Jacob did the second kiss, you still think it's despicable? Fine.
You know, for all your talk to me about how to talk to people, you sure are good at acting mighty superior aren't you??
What is the bigger issue I'm missing here?? I think you all want to blow it into something it's not. Guess what?? If this were real life, and someone kissed me even though I didn't want them to, people would say, yeah, he's a jerk. But if I said someone dismantled my car and had their sister hold me hostage when they were out of town so I couldn't see my best friend - they'd tell me to run. Fast.
I mention on several occasion that you shouldn't take things personal, your not being back into a corner here. We all entitled to our own opinions but you have to accept the fact that others are going to question them. Just because we don't agree with you don't mean we are nitpicking, dismissive, disrespectful, condescending or superior. Like Ringwraith said no one is attacking you but a little clarity in your explanation and openness will go a long way.
