ponder

“Women are crueler in Sade’s world. Once they have tasted power, once they know how to use their sexuality as an instrument of aggression, they will use it to extract vengeance for the humiliations they were forced to endure as the objects of the sexual energy of others. A free woman in an unfree society will be a monster.”
— Angela Carter, The Sadeian Woman
