Bohemian Gothic Study - The Devil


Hello -
Hope I'm doing this correctly!
I'm very interested in BG Deck and have been reading all of the "study" posts and would like to start one on the Devil.
Is it a he? A she? How does "it" speak to people? What has been your experience with this card in readings?
When I see this card I think of the Empress's Purely Evil Twin Sister.
Other posts here have made reference to the Devil being male but it looks female to me.
The most horrifying, disturbing, malevolent, pure evil thing a woman can do is turn away from her light side of loving, nurturing, caring and to abuse the trust that women have been given as life givers, caregivers/nurturers. This card reveals destruction at it's worst; trust gone so wrong. The addicted woman looks so dependent and in need of the Devil - and isn't that what addiction does to us? Don't we love addiction like we love a mother?
I can't think of a better Devil card - RWS has nothing on this!
