I don't see anything particularly Mormon in this

I know this comment of yours is particular to a type of male behavior, but I wanted also to mention to all that 'Twilight' indeed has underlying themes rooted in Mormonism: Go here for an angle on that: Mormon imagery runs deep in ‘Twilight’ ... see also my posts #1, #4, and #18 on that thread.

I’m not familiar enough with either the books (thank God!) or Mormonism to comment much.

But the specific objectionable themes and actions discussed in the article aren’t particularly Mormon in nature.

If the author is Mormon, I don’t know why anybody would be surprised if she drew from her background when writing. Tolkien was Catholic and Lord of the Rings has a great deal of Catholic imagery and themes in it.
