From Slender Man to Satan, young pre-teen girls seem to seek out a mysterious evil presence, but why?
Do young girls do this because they think it’s cool? Perhaps, but in the right circumstance. It would take a certain situation with people already warm to the idea of Satanism and fringe things to influence another.
Do these girls have deep seeded emotional issues? Seems likely. I don’t think many would argue otherwise, but many may disagree on how these deep seeded issues manifest. Are there unresolved daddy issues? One could think that as these girls tend to look for a strong “evil” male presence. Could there be unresolved mommy issues? That is another possibility. Perhaps these girls are seeking out danger to get the attention of their mother.
These questions are tough to answer, and the attempt to answer leads to arguments. You know what’s easy? Blaming movies and books. That’s a hell of a lot easier and requires no self-reflection. Society at large can blame the movies, comic books, and music for Satanic influence, but the kids have been playing with Satan and other dark figures way before any of that.
