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.

That’s the age I started refusing to be my mom’s doll to dress up and do my hair with painful curling irons every day, and doing chores my brother never had to do. To this day my mom says that girls become much more difficult when they hit puberty. No wonder it took me so long to realize becoming a woman is not in and of itself a source of decades-long trauma for people who are actually female.
