weekly discussion: anti-feminist themes.

Google alerts brought me across this article and I thought that this comment from Meg Cabot (author of The Princess Diaries) was interesting:
I didn’t take my husband’s last NAME when we got married. Do you honestly think I’d like a story about a girl considering changing SPECIES for a guy? No offense to any of you, but as a feminist, I just can’t go there
I've seen similar comments throughout fandom and I'm curious to hear what you guys think. Would Bella's transformation be an anti-feminist act? Is the sacrifice too big to make? Furthermore, has she had enough time to consider all her options? Discuss here!

You are all very respectful here, but just in case...please respect all viewpoints and opinions. Debates are fun, but bashing is not.
