Columbia Sorority Sister's Electra Complex: “I’m in Love with my Father."

Brock Colyar posted on New York magazine's The Cut "I Go To an Actual Frat Party". In the piece, Colyar met: "[...] two darkly funny sorority sisters: “Hillary,” a Barnard junior, and “Brooke,” a Columbia senior, both international students [...]" 

Hillary and Brooke invited Colyar to a ($15 via Venmo) Upper West Side frat party. Brooke invited her other sorority sisters via Slack. The part of the party that's relevant to this blog is when, at 1:21 am, Brooke shared with Colyar and Hilary that she's in love with her father (i.e., : 
1:31 a.m. | On a couch upstairs, I gossip with Brooke and Hillary over boy troubles.
King. I’ve never had a boyfriend ever,” Hillary says. 
Brooke has a different problem: “I’m in love with my father, an Electra complex*.” Then we all look at photos of her silver-haired, broad-shouldered dad shirtless on a beach trip somewhere. 
“I wish we had a J to facilitate conversation. An aperitif,” Hillary says, though I think we’ve had enough, now that we’re all drooling over these daddy pics.

We weren't (completely) shocked by Brooke's admission of her attraction to her father. Besides, we wrote an entire chapter on the Daddy Thing in Teens Love and Want to F*ck James Franco: A Study of a Life and Works

And we've done a number of posts on this blog about the topic. For example, to name a very few, we wrote about Dr. Phil's TikTok where he beseeched girls to stop calling him Daddy. 

Netflix's Insatiable "I'm super tight."

We wrote about Netflix's Insatiable where 17-year-old Patty attempted to seduce Bob - her beauty pageant coach and asked Bob, "Can I call you daddy?"

And we wrote about Nancy Friday's My Secret Garden: Women’s Sexual Fantasies where Bella shared that since she was 8-years-old, her father has always been her "fantasy lover during masturbation".

Curiously, and (some) feminists may find this intriguing, in every situation, it didn't appear that the older men did any grooming
