On the topic of female emotional power. Why is that mothers like to embarrass their sons? Does it give them some sort of control/power over them, if and when they realize there is something they can embarrase their sons over. Say a photo, or just a general event that occurs that her son feels insecure about, so she keeps bringing it to make him feel more embarrassed about it.
I think that the three most powerful things a woman has in her emotional arsenal are embarrassment, shaming, and guilt. There may be more, those are just the ones that stand out the most to me. How does one get around this? and why do mothers and females in general use this?
