We are more than gatekeepers and pursuers.
It’s a set up
As a designated gatekeeper, giving in to passion comes with fierce consequences.
Like being labelled a whore, being shunned, and believing that I have nothing else to offer. Ever.
The pursuers have different consequences when caught giving in: being labelled weak minded, easily controlled, and believing they are powerless.
We are terrified by the possibility that we will lose control to passion.
Basic burqa philosophy:
Supress that which terrifies us.
