To get things cleared up, I did not invent a new word. This phrase I believe was coined by the girls over at Twired and I really learned about it in the list of ailments for Twihards from Twibite in her post "The Doctor Will See You Now." Medically Jackson-itis is actually defined as inflammation of the Jackson. In this case they're speaking about Jackson Rathbone or better yet known as the guy who plays Jasper Whitlock.
Those ladies have a thing for him because I guess they have "inflammation of desire" as they put it. I am trying very hard to overlook the misuse of medical latin and shut off that part of my brain. Okay, back into twihard TC mode.
I have never been a fan of Jackson Rathbone. When he's in town playing with his band 100 Monkeys I frankly don't have the urge to drop my panties and head to the front row.
I'd only care if he was being cheered on by Rob Pattinson (whom I dream would give me a boost because I'm so small). Being a Robward fan I've never felt tempted to look Jackson's way. Not out of loyalty but maybe out of blindness.
Yes, I'm really either very loyal or very blind. Even when the video of Kellan Lutz's Calvin Klein underwear photo shoot was released I was only mildly distracted (although my panties would tell you otherwise) by his ripped body and "Olympic-sized" package.
So, despite seeing many photos of Jackson thus far I have not been swayed.
Until Twitarded posted this one.

Now for some of you Jackson diehards I'm sure this pic does nothing for you. But it actually me made stop strolling and just stare in shock. I started reeling and feeling a bit faint going "oh god, I don't want to catch Jacksonitis but I can feel it coming on." So I kept strolling. Phew! That was a close one.
After I calmed down, I tried to deduce what had changed. I finally figured out what it was. It's the hair. I'm not really into blondes and I don't like long hair. I would have been a terrible rock band groupie in the '80s.
Every time I think of Jackson I still see this
Uugh! I know they are just wigs but I'm having trouble getting over it.
Hair is so important. I like this one of Johnny Depp (even though he theoretically would be stinky as hell and had probably raped and pillaged many a town)
But much prefer this
|Neither are the hottest photos of him but|
then this isn't a Johnny blog is it
Now, that is not to say that I always approve of short hair. This pic of Rob freshly shorn will show you just how bad too long and too short can be.
|Too long - Too short|
And how just right looks like this
|Even in a Jackson post, Rob manages to look f*ck hot|
Oh, I feel like Goldilocks. Wait, there could be a fanfic idea there... I mean if Honolulu Girl from TrueBlood Twilight can write an awesome fic about Cinderella A Tale of Lust, maybe she'll take this on too :)
So, getting back to Jackson. If any of you have Jacksonitis and want to try and infect me, go ahead. Give it your best shot and send me your favourite photo. See if you can turn me to the dark side. I'll bring cupcakes to join with your cookies.
