DISCUSSION

When I became irrationally enraged over the Kristen Stewart suggestion it occurred to me that I don't know any adult women who like her. Many actively dislike her. I think she might be one of those Gwyneth Paltrow types that turn off women for no real, solid reason. I know I can't stand her, and I think it's her grouchiness and bad acting, but there's something else there. She's just annoying, and I can't put my finger on why.
