Hysteria and Female Writers

How dumb old-timey doctors made females do nothing all day because they made books instead of babies.


For me to tell you what a struggle it was for early female writers, especially female horror writers, I have to give you a very brief overview of what hysteria was. Hysteria was the first mental disorder attributed to women. It was a catch-all-dumpster-fire of a diagnosis for women who didn’t behave like men thought they should. Didn’t want to have sex?

Filling the Soul Hole

Part 1: Sorrow


As an avid reader of horror, you may worry that you have been desensitized towards certain deeply felt emotions. You’ve read it all. Guts festoon the trees of your dreamscapes. You’ve made a cozy nest for the hideous monsters lurking in your basement. Any small children that cross your path are likely demon-possessed. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’ve seen it all. You worry that you have lost the ability to empathize. You have an empty spot in the center of your heart where your soul used to be. You...
