So I brought up this nightmare i had about me hearing that I'm soon to be married to my dad. This random guy at my friends place overhead it and adamantly kept insisting its normal for girls to want to fk their dad cuz freud "the father of psychoanalysis" said so. I told him I was really disgusted in my "pure subconscious dream state"aswell. Thankfully a friend who was a psych major intervened and boy did he spill some tea on freud. Like the other guy didn't let up but oh well.
Apparently Freud uhh really loved his mum and had a difficult relationship with his dad. He made things weirder by basically saying hey everyone wants to fuck their mum/dad right? .....right guys? Guys???
Oh another theory of his, women apparently spend their whole lives having "penis envy" they become envious after seeing any man's pp as they automatically recognize it as a superior appendage. He "diagnosed" a child that got traumatized by seeing a horse die on the street that the kid was scared the horse will castrate him for having incestuous thoughts about his mum and the horse must have reminded him about his dad cuz horses have big pps. How do they allow kids around him man. The fact that he was cocaine addict explains a lot of his theories ngl.
My question is how is freud still taught in textbooks if some of his theories are straight up whacky. Like wtf is pp envy?Or horses pps reminding someone of their dad? Like it reads less like a report and more like a bad fanfic that scars you. He makes EVERYTHING about sex, pps or his mum. Even this whole oedipus/Electra thing isn't based on any scientific evidence and as far as ikw hella untrue. Idk the anonymous poll will figure that out.
But damn that's a really wrong message to perpetuate into someone's head man. Imagine if I were a child that knew no better. This "analysis" would leave me paranoid, confused and very uncomfortable. He must've made sense somewhere in his career but damn putting these ideas into people's heads who already suffer from mental health issues will make stuff so much worse.
