what the thing in paranormal romance-style urban fantasy with the multiple hot boys is really about:

Secretly, heterosexual women want a stable of attractive, sexy, syncophantic, personalityless men who will fawn upon us and grant our every wish, and then go away and let us beat up the bad guys and impress them.* Also, it wouldn't hurt if they were really good in bed.

Yeah, sorry, guys. I know it's hard to take. I remember how shocked and unsettled I was when I found out that Charlie's Angels wasn't really about female empowerment.

Civilization honestly isn't such a bad idea after all, is it?

*Some of them can also be the bad guys, if they don't mind getting beaten up. It gives us the opportunity to angst pretty and try to save them.
