Adora and She-ra make me feel like nothing
I admit I have a problem with strong, smart, independent, beautiful, powerful women like Adora/She-ra because I've been rejected by them.
I resented She-ra being as strong as He-man and having so many more powers. I resented Adora getting a better sword than Adam, with an added jewel. I was jealous of the fact that she got a longer and more spectacular transformation sequence. A woman like this I want to keep down because of my own insecurities, inadequacies, and shortcomings as a man.
