Anger is pretty much the only emotion I have trouble accessing
I’m Interested In You. That Doesn’t Mean I’m Trying To Have Sex With You.

I would love to hear more about this — I’m one of those few women who has no problem expressing my anger, which to be clear does’t mean I’m yelling or punching people — it means something more like me saying pretty quietly but with some force “argh! I’m so angry about this right now! argh!” Yet — that is interpreted by people as if I’m now suddenly Godzilla stomping on people and quickly I get told to “calm down” which only makes me want to keep feeling angry. I wonder if we need more women being angry because my anger is one of my greatest gifts. I use that intense emotion to drive my actions towards resolutions and solutions. If I’m angry about something, I am much more likely to get up and do something to rectify the problem than if I just feel frustrated or slightly incensed or positive towards a change.
