I actually think the speech that Kate MacKinnon gives about monster boyfriends in Friends From College is... not far from the truth, actually https://twitter.com/dynamicsymmetry/status/1319417449507323910
Teen girls are interested in boys but also afraid of them and want sex and romance but at a remove; ergo the appeal of the monster boyfriend, who offers an outlet to explore the fantasies but can never be real
I mean that was never *my* bag, but if you’re straight, I can see the logic
I’m trying to find the speech online but alas all I’m finding is reminders that you were all too provincial to appreciate the genius that was Friends From College
