I was just thinking the other day about how weird it was that 10-15 years ago, there was this meme of openly pedophilic sentiment toward the Olsen Twins, which was oddly just sort of tolerated somehow. Admittedly, feminism was at a low ebb around 2005, but it’s difficult for me to come up with another occasion where it was fine to just openly ponder the desirability of tweens in that way. And then it just kind of stopped. I never really understood it. I definitely get that some early teenagers prefer a “porny” look, not that I approve of adult males getting gross over it, but I don’t think that was the source of this particular phenomenon. It was this weird sort of jokey thing almost. And then Elizabeth Olsen comes on the scene later and she’s treated like a normal actress. Not even given the weird treatment of a Zooey Deschanel so far as I can tell. Just inexplicable.

Straight guys are weird.
