karaj:

“…he won’t stop talking about how tired he is. then he is letting me know that part of why he is tired is bc he had to take care of me last weekend when i had the seizure. let me note that he only had to take care of me for ONE NIGHT and that, honestly, i could have died…[then] he starts yelling at me, telling me im selfish, telling me i am not thankful for last weekend…” 

This makes me so sad to remember. “I don’t think I’m being selfish.”

BARNEYS VS SEIZURE DO THE MATH

“At what point does listening to artists obsessively encourage manipulative relationships, sociopathic deception and irresponsible sex with women doubling as accessorized pussy become not just destructive, but really, really boring?”

For readings on the correlation in horror between puberty and the monstrous, see:

I will add Carol Clover’s Men, Women, and Chain Saws here, although she’s concerned more with identification, monstrous-feminine as men’s horror, and the maternal aspects of possession tales (including a section on possession as oral penetration). Although both Creed and Clover are important feminist horror theorists who work in Psychoanalytical lenses, Barbara Creed talks more about transformation than Carol Clover does. And transformation is key to horror movies about how women are terrifying.

For variations on a theme, watch Ginger Snaps, Carrie, and Teeth together.
