Yeah. I needed the title in all-caps. Because I’m screaming at the top of my lungs and yanking at my own hair.
WHY IS DRAWING THE EMPEROR CARD SUCH A STRUGGLE?
For an irrational woo answer to that, I might say maybe it’s because our global collective culture is moving away from dominant-masculinity, and as a feminist I’m certainly not going to cry a river over that shift, but it does mean I’m really, really struggling with tapping in to that masculine energy.
