Did Bella’s “Breaking Dawn” birth scene cause seizures in men who’ve finally beheld the difficulties women face when giving birth?
Apparently, entertainment news has gotten word of several incidents of seizures that occurred among men who watched “Breaking Dawn, Part I,” particularly during the bloody birth scene where Bella, played by Kristen Stewart, goes into labor and delivers her half-vampire baby, Renesmee…
“He was convulsing, snorting, trying to breathe. He scared me big time,”
Twi-hard Kelly Bauman said of her boyfriend, Brandon Gephart who watched the film with her at a Sacramento theater.
A Utah man also blacked out during the birth scene, shaking, mumbling and blinking rapidly, causing his wife to panic.
Why just the men? Has it finally dawned on male viewers how terribly wrong a birthing can go, and how much pain and suffering (not to mention blood and gore) can be involved in the process?
According to Epilepsy specialist, Michael G. Chez, the scene may have triggered photosensitive epilepsy in people who may be genetically predisposed to it.
“It’s like a light switch going off, because it hits your brain all at once.”
So is Chez saying it’s not the bloody birth scene itself that cause the seizures, and that men are genetically predisposed to photosensitize epilepsy?
Let us in your own experience? Know any other men who did the Watusi on the theater floor while watching Edward perform a C-section on Bella with his teeth?
