Mental illness is like fighting a war where the enemy’s strategy is to convince you that the war isn’t actually happening.

In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.

oedipus complex is not that, oedipus complex is when a son starts to dislike the father/fight with him/envy him and has sexual feelings towards the mother hence the greek mythological story oedipus when he marries his mom but he didnt even know it 

ELECTRA complex is when the daughter secretly wants her dad sexually aka what the quote just described

idk about the other stuff but i know theyre referencing electra and not oedipus, even though oedipus is more well known
