Its going to be tough, but I will make that title fit this piece. I have wanted to use that for years, and maybe I was gifted the opportunity. You have to like Spaceballs, if you don’t, I am truly sorry. I need to now go back and watch it and figure out which character is the abuser, what with all the mention of Schwartzes there’s gotta be an abuser in there somewhere. Why? Answer this question: What do Edward Cullen, Christian Grey, and Steve the cowboy have in common?
They were highly sought after romantic protagonists in stories, factual or fiction, and attracted millions of women seeking similar vicarious experiences They are abusers.

Remember when the network TV stations ran some version of Chiller Theater late on Saturday nights? It was the old Lon Chaney movies, werewolves, vampires, Frankenstein, etc. Towards the end of the genre, the later made movies, they started to mix the characters up, releasing Frankentein vs The Werewolf, and Swamp Thing meets Dracula and so forth.
Comes Edgar and Christian and Steve. Ossiana Tepfenhart has written an article that frames three contemporary and popular stories as how to manuals for spotting an abuser. She is of course referring to the Twilight movies, the 50 Shades of Grey book, and another book called The Feminist And The Cowboy.They are the monsters that are attacking these poor women.
That’s how I envision the writer portraying the protagonists from the stories she mentions. The similarities are eerie. In all those old black and white movies there was a woman who was romantically invested in one of the scary creatures, and in the end, one monster had to resist his base nature to defend the feinting woman from the attack of the other creature. The suddenly good monster often died after saving the damsel. But while he was alive, he was a beast. He may have even frightened her through her window and in more scandalous films, torn her bodice.
Edgar and Steve and Christian are abusers, kidnappers, takers, all the alpha dark traits tied up in
one studly hot offensive misogynist nightmare.
But wait, scores of women are lining up to consume these products, some admitting to being powerfully attracted to the imagery to the point of acting out. They are (gasp) chasing the bad boy. They are succumbing to hypergamy. And they are enjoying it.
Be it for a blog, a testimonial, or even ghostwriting. You name the topic, and I will use research and personal experience, or given materials to write it.
Maybe she had an abuse fantasy book queued up and ready, a book that would quiver the jello so to speak, and was beaten to it.
Quiz: How does Pizza the Hut fit into this? Answer: I’m not sure.
But it was fun using him in the title of a blog entry that shows how hypergamy and women’s vehement denial of same have them eating themselves alive in fits of cognitive dissonance. .
