As women learn to deal with the anger they feel every day due to the constant misogyny we face, we are much better equipped to 'hulk out' if needed.
So I just finished the first episode of She-Hulk and what struck me as the most interesting factor was how they defined the personality of She-Hulk as very different from the Hulk.
Bruce – or Hulk is a little frustrated and confused as to why his cousin Jen (She-Hulk) is so much better at transitioning, warning her that she might not be able to control risking lives under stress and anger. After all, he hulks out when angry.
So when Bruce points out that hulking out is triggered because of stress or anger, Jen replies that ‘stress or anger’ is the baseline emotion of any woman every day. Which is so true, and I am sure every woman would relate to it.
How many times we feel stress on issues that won’t matter to men!
Many more such questions bother us while we go on with our daily lives. In short, worry and stress is the every-minute state of every woman.
In another conversation, Bruce says, “We have to make sure of your ability to tolerate the stress and regulate your emotions, especially your anger.”
To that Jen replies, “Here’s the thing, Bruce. I am great at controlling anger. I do it all the time. When I am catcalled in the streets, when incompetent men explain my own area of expertise to me. I do it pretty much every day because if I don’t, I will get called ’emotional’, or ‘difficult’, might just literally get murdered. So I am an expert at controlling my anger because I do it infinitely more than you.”
How many times we as woman have suppressed our anger or emotion so that we are not stereotyped as difficult?
How many times have we avoided certain paths to steer clear of bullies and stalkers?
How many times have we all wondered if we should give up our dreams or point of view to maintain peace at home?
How many times have we over compensated because we are women?
Innumerable times. We woman are raised to be passive angry all the time, instead of expressing it. So I guess we all are more capable of hulking out than any man, because the secret to it is that we are always angry.
… And anger is good, towards inequality, towards gender stereotypimg, towards mansplaining.
So cheers to all the She-Hulks out there, flexing their emotions.
Experimenting with experiences is the mantra of my life. Writing is a passion that helps me channel my emotions and recreate memories, publish points of view and create stories. A self-proclaimed creative soul, I read more...

Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
It is high time that women truly understood their worth and place in society, and rightfully claimed it for their own good.
Albert Einstein pretty much nailed it when he said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
The crazy-haired genius was being eloquent about a facet of human nature that doesn’t really deserve that sort of consideration.
As an extension of this strange predilection, it’s in our nature to put things in their place and most people, in particular, simply cannot resist putting a woman in her place.
