Response to Laura PourMeADrink (Original post)

14. It feels that way because we've been sold only one brand of power.

We’re conditioned to define power as “masculine”—authority imposed with hard, ruthless,
chest-thumping, feces-flinging displays of primitive aggression. We dismiss the “soft” power of negotiation, diplomacy, collaboration, egalitarianism and reason as “feminine,” therefore weak.

In other words, authoritarianism=“masculine”=power; and democracy=“feminine”=weakness. Brand R or Brand D. Take your pick.
