    The Optimist says "The glass is half full".

    The Pessimist says "The glass is half empty"
    .
    The Negativist says "Half full, half empty? Why does it matter? The glass is filled with stagnant shit water! If i'm lucky, maybe i'll trip, break the glass, cut my self on the shards, have the stagnant shitwater seep into my wounds, get an infection and die in agony; fingers crossed!".

    I seem to recall reading that the ORIGINAL original stories by the brothers Grimm weren't about STEP-mothers and STEP-fathers, but mothers and fathers. E.g., Hansel and Gretel were left in the woods by their REAL parents because their parents couldn't afford to support them. And this, IIRC, was later "softened" to "step" relatives, so there was at least the excuse that they weren't being cruel to their own children.
    Hänsel and Gretel are left in the woods by their biological parents in the 1812 version and it's the biological father and a stepmother after 1840. I don't remember any Grimm tale with a stepfather though, almost always a stepmother. I read that in some English language versions Cinderella's father is dead while in the Grimm version he is alive but agreeing with the step mother or not standing up against her. The change in the fairy tales' theme this causes is interesting. In the first version famine obliges a family living in poverty to give up their own children while in the second one they are still poorbut it is the stepmother's dysfunction, i.e. her lack of "proper" female nurturing instinct that causes them to abandon the kids. There are even theories that, psychologically, the (step)mother and the witch are one and the same person because once the witch is dead and the kids come home the evil (step)mother has also disapperared (at least in some versions). Don't ask me where I read that though.

    Psychological analysis of fairy tales can be fascinating. There is an interesting series of depth psychology exgesis by the theologian/psychoanalyst Eugen Drewermann based on that assumption that many fairy tales talk about common emotional human experiences like a parent-child conflict, the development of sexual maturity, the gaining of independence from one's parents, etc in codified form, often using metaphorical imagery. His writing is very Ni-ish and feelery but he has some interesting interpretations.

    This exchange also got me to look up the Aarne-Thompson classification system for fairy tales (INTP porn!) and it seems that there are many versions of Cinderella but one of the key elements they all have in common is the evil FEMALE antagonist which could be a stepmother or an older sister.

    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Highlights of the day:

    • Throwing my water bottle at an asshole
    • Being called a "freak ass faggot"
    • More to come

    We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.


    T.S. Eliot
