"Some years later, in a telling letter of May 8, 1912, which Gay (1990) sees as a riposte to Freud’s previous slip, Jung challenged Freud’s chastisement and asked, “why does the son receive a caning when the daughter is allowed to sleep with the father?” #psikanaliz
Perhaps this might be read as Jung’s envy of Freud’s daughter Anna, but he goes on to berate the mother too, declaring that there comes a time when the son no longer desires the mother
with “her sagging belly and varicose veins,” protesting that “the son is therefore no longer a threat to the father” (Jung to Freud, May 8, 1912)."
