"As a society, we encourage girls and women to be emotionally accessible, and in touch with their feelings; we say that it’s an innately feminine trait. We say it, that is, until they have feelings that make us uncomfortable, at which point we recast them as melodramatic harpies, shrieking banshees, and basket cases."

Tori Amos
Sady Doyle

Edit May 11: I have just learned that this quote is not by Tori Amos, but by Sady Doyle. It is from an article she wrote about Tori Amos.
You can read it here, and I must say it is spectacular.
Apparently this is a very popular misconception and I’m very sorry for perpetuating it.
