    By the way, hysteria has been ruled out as a formally diagnosable disorder; it was a creation of ancient, misogynistic, unscientific psychology. Also, Freud has been always criticized for his biased judgement to women; he was yet another misogynist who saw men as the ideal. (Scientifically respected psychology don't discriminate and also, the find proper data to support their studies. Freud considered cases such that they justified his theories) . Fin. :)

    Some men are simply TERRIFIED of women taking ownership of their own body, because, if so, these men can not hold the power of owning these women anymore.

An Introduction

I don't know politics but I know the names
Of those in power, and can repeat them like
Days of week, or names of months, beginning with Nehru.
I amIndian, very brown, born inMalabar,
I speak three languages, write in
Two, dream in one.
Don't write in English, they said, English is
Not your mother-tongue. Why not leave
Me alone, critics, friends, visiting cousins,
Every one of you? Why not let me speak in
Any language I like? The language I speak,
Becomes mine, its distortions, its queernesses
All mine, mine alone.
It is half English, halfIndian, funny ...

The Looking Glass

Getting a man to love you is easy
Only be honest about your wants as
Woman. Stand nude before the glass with him
So that he sees himself the stronger one
And believes it so, and you so much more
Softer, younger, lovelier. Admit your
Admiration. Notice the perfection
Of his limbs, his eyes reddening under
The shower, the shy walk across the bathroom floor,
