Um--I hope that word is okay to use here. The whole thing with Freud and the Alexa/Electra and Oedipus complex's(one of those).. Is it just me-or are those theories just a bit whacky?

I, for one, did NOT have penis envy. Well, other than wishing I could also stand to pee.

LOL considering this is a mommies board I hope we are able to handle the word penis!

Yes I think those theories are a bit wacky though I guess in most theories there is also a bit of truth.

I would also love to be able to pee standing up! Men have got it easy!

As much training as I've had, and as much credit as I'm supposed to give Freud, I voice loudly and often that "I hate Freud and he was a big crock". I guess writing while on cocaine is a big problem for me. We can thank him for at least jump starting the profession, and many still follow him, but I am certainly not one of them. Many disagree, and thats fine, but I find most of his stuff rubbish (including penis envy!)

I dont have penis evvy in the slightest, I'm SO completly happy with all the stuff that comes with being a woman. I'd never want it any other way. I definatly see it in some women though. (freud had ISSUES!)

Now my HUSBAND on the other hand has said he has boobie envy! He wishes he had them. lol

I've never actually looked up the Freudian definition of penis envy until just now, but wow, I guess it gives a whole new twist to "daddy's girl" Yuck.

I find Freud to have been utterly out of his mind. I have never had penis envy, nor do I care to. A few of his theories are just plain wacky.

I have penis envy. I want to stand while peeing. I want to be able to sit in a car and if I have to pee really bad in the middle of no where being able o stand and not having to worry if i peed on my shoe. I also wish i could pee in the snow. Though I think I have figured that one out. A funnel and a tube. I will test this theory one day.

Also for masterbating. I wonder what it feels like for a guy. Other than that.. My alien is just fine!

ETA: If my post made no sense because i didnt read the article, sorry lol. Its late and I am tired. I dont feel like reading.

I too don't give much merit to most of Freuds stuff... Some of it makes some sense, but the part that the OP mentioned are the ones that are pretty off... my abnormal psych prof was just talking about it the other day.. some stuff she can say hmmm interesting, and some is just wacky!

Penises (or is it penii?) are ugly! Why would I ever want one of those things?

i have never ever in my life needed to use the plural for penis, because I've never seen more than one at one time, and cant think of a story when I'd have to use the plural!

I'd like to say that, but working in daycare's I've seen my fair share of them one after another and another and another. I think I had nightmares about changing diapers for a while. . I usually didnt TALK about them though, (oh, other than this one little boy that you couldnt help but go OMG! cause you'd have to "wrap it" to make sure it didnt fall out of his diaper. It was unreal. ok, that was WAY OFF TOPIC) anyway, I think its penises, but not sure. hmmm should look that one up.
