Randy Girls

From an On the Media interview with a former Ayn Rand enthusiast who wrote an article about why some teenage girls are drawn to Rand’s work:

BROOKE GLADSTONE: As research for her piece, Benfer wrote to book editors she knew, trolling for opinions about Rand.

AMY BENFER: One book editor wrote back to me and said, I avoided reading Ayn Rand until I was 22. And after I finished The Fountainhead, I felt I had discovered something very important – never date a boy who is reading The Fountainhead.
