Shame on every single point in this story, in which the men control the women (Damon with Charlotte and Elena; Shane with Hayley and Bonnie; Tyler with Kim, etc.). Oh hell. I’m too angry to write anymore. […] Pleasant dreams, my dears. Pleasant dreams, but please remember, when you attempt to measure a woman’s worth by counting how often she spreads her legs, you’re saying a lot more about yourself than you’ll ever know about that woman.
