• What they say: I'm fine.
  • What they mean: A young man stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, is this young man's birthday. Though it was thirteen years ago he was given life, it is only today he will be given a name! What will the name of this young man be?

"All of this is typical girl-fear. Once you realize that The Exorcist is, essentially, the story of a 12-year-old who starts cussing, masturbating, and disobeying her mother—in other words, going through puberty—it becomes apparent to the feminist-minded viewer why two adult men are called in to slap her around for much of the third act. People are convinced that something spooky is going on with girls; that, once they reach a certain age, they lose their adorable innocence and start tapping into something powerful and forbidden. Little girls are sugar and spice, but women are just plain scary. And the moment a girl becomes a woman is the moment you fear her most. Which explains why the culture keeps telling this story."

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.
