How many times can you hear Ceilidh say “American Exceptionalism”? You’re about to find out, as the Bloodsucking Feminists discuss the rise of the Old West and Hollywood, the rape revenge fantasy (and why it’s always written by men and in the same way), lament women not being friends, and debate a new breed of vampire and how that plays into vampiric tropes.

Also, Catherine just wants some candy, [expletive].
