Role of the Female

by Peter Fritz Walter

The female, to become acceptable in an entirely man-dominated world, had to be deprived of her own desire, castrated, relegated to the role of the obedient little girl. 

Without desire herself, the girl-female became undesirable as an unconscious reflex of the superego’s copulation prohibition. She was no more desired as a child to be lovingly procreated by her parents, but her birth was largely considered an accident; in many cases a man who procreated only girls or too many girls was considered weak in Antiquity and even through the Renaissance. 

Hence, the undesirable girl-female became a sexual taboo; for the unconscious, in fact, there is no difference between the desire of a couple to have a child and the sexual desire for copulation with a child.
