Insecure: An Insight About Molly’s Life

submitted by guest writer: Savage. Twitter: @AkintobiJ


This is not a religion inclined review but just a moral assessment about one of the series major characters. Issa’s best friend, Molly(Yvonne Orji) seems like a good girl living the decent life with a good job living comfortably. Her only shortcoming was a good relationship which she never had till the end of the second season.


One major thing I noted about Molly(Yvonne Orji) was that she was sexually active as she had sex with most of the guys she hooked up with. After sex, she then finally realised they were not her type or they were not good enough for her.



As the series progressed, I realised it wasn’t really just about Molly. The series was littered with this same mindset, for example, Lawerence’s co-worker, Aparna(Jasmine Kaur), the girl he later had an affair with told him having sex doesn’t necessarily mean they were close. This begets my question: Shouldn’t sex be a landmark for settling in a relationship? and shouldn’t relationship be given a shot  before we start servicing each other?


Lastly, since the series is about the modern day African girl. Is this one of her attributes? Let me know your opinion in the comments section below.

Insecure currently available in two seasons.

    What actually inspired this post is the fact that there are things in “this” modern world that we feel is right probably because there are lots of people doing it, from a girl child point of view I strongly believe it shouldn’t be. Thanks for the comment Bro. Peace!


  3. […] This occurs majorly while trying to settle down in life; fighting for the present while holding bits of one’s past and trying to blend them all into one’s dream future path. As two African-American ladies, they’re bound to have loads of issues coming at them in rounds, for example, having to make decisions career wise in a ‘Black female unfriendly’ climate. As Issa Rae said in the past, “We’re just trying to convey that people of color are relatable. This is not a hood story. This is about regular people living life.” So regular people living life, trying to nail down a stable preeq. […]
