We look at this as a woman speaking about women but we mustn’t forget the perspective here. She was a powerful woman, she could be feminine and act as a shrinking violet and men would still fawn over her. They dare not take advantage or see it as a weakness. For women to act gentle and feminine men also have to know how to behave. To be gentlemen and not aggressive to women. I hate it when women act aggressive. It seems even uglier than when men do it and that’s ugly enough. Queen Vic was right on this one. It makes women ugly. I wonder if she saw that ugliness first hand from someone. I love feminine women.
