some kid in my class wrote an essay about how it never explicitly says Beowulf isn’t a robot
For readings on the correlation in horror between puberty and the monstrous, see:
Okay, but really, the exorcist is not some story about a girl going through puberty. This was a thing that actually happened, but not to a girl. This kid from D.C. that got taken to this hospital in St. Louis, no one knew what to do with him, because he was fucking possessed. These guys who youre saying are just slapping around the girl, they were fucking torn apart by this. They felt so fucking bad for this kid. I understand that sometimes movies do that shit about girls, but this one was based off stuff that happened, not even to a girl, to a guy.
