On Changing Channels.....

Elly's tendency to chicken out when firmness is required is, of course, symptomatic of a deeper problem: the need to not admit to herself that she's responsible for most of what's wrong in her life. One of the examples of this that comes most readily to mind is her refusal to admit that she's a bland, mousy, timid stick-in-the-mud who not only just plain doesn't like enjoying things out of a need for sympathy and special treatment but also hates to learn things because of the childish delusion that admitting ignorance is an open invitation to having the quality people deride and blacklist her. Rather than admit to the humiliation of being in the wrong, she does one of two things; she either denies that values have changed or ascribes altered social norms to an attempt to play a mean-spirited trick on her. The most destructive example of this tendency has to be her very strong need to not admit to having sexual impulses; she either bleats about how dangerous information used to be censored (which, of course, means that she resents the fact that it isn't) or tries her damnedest to duck the issue. Given that she's also a particularly noxious hypocrite who had perverted fantasies about the non-stop orgy Connie's life had to have been, her need to protect her children from smut is particularly revolting.
