Early in our lives, we grabbed onto the quickest form of power we had available to us. For men, it was physical strength. If someone didn't do what we wanted, we could force them or fight them. We physically dominated. Now consider what women learned as their first power. They learned how to understand and manipulate social situations, and they also learned how to use their looks and sexuality as power over men.
Remember: you grab onto the power that is most easily accessible to you, and that's what formed a large portion of your personality as you grew up.
