Even ignorant, idiotic, meaningless and senseless things can be read and and tried to be understood. Just because something is a complete bogus (to you) doesn't mean you can't read and learn about it - unless of course, you have ego problem(s).
Also, in order to know whether the thing really is bogus or not - you gotta read it and try to understand the gist of it - no matter how stupid it may appear. If even after that, it still feels bogus, then you have every right to criticize it, deem it illogical, call it senseless, etcetera. Otherwise you don't. You can't comment - either praise or criticize - on something you have no clue about.
Twilight is stupid, and one of the worst piece of literature (if it is worth being called a literature, that is) out there, but I forced myself to finish it so that I can make fun of the book and criticize it with my full knowledge. I did not start nitpicking on it until I knew I am done with it. It was a painful experience flicking through the pages, going through the purple proses, and the oh-so-beautiful-Edward and the Marie Sue Bella, but I did bring myself to finish it, no matter how hard it was for me.
If you can't bother reading about something, then don't bother commenting - especially with a passion - on it as well.
I am sure most of you will not like it if I start talking trash about your family just by going with what the society says. I should get a minimum, if not more, amount of knowledge about your families first before I make up my mind, right? Or should I just go on with my pre-set mind?

I think I told you before that I used to belive in God before, and I used to do pujas etc.. in my house. But one day, I just stopped doing so just to see the effect. Nothing much really happened, so I stopped believing. I thought it was a waste of time, and that time can be used in engaging in other benficial activities.
