Essay from the year 2000 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, grade: A, University of Illinois at Chicago, language: English, abstract: [...] Therefore, the baby tries to replace his/her sucking in a mother direction in other words, the mother gets displaces. In the theory of Freud the female sex is incomplete. She is the castrate of the real sex, the man. ``...the little girl is first a little boy, actively desiring her mother in the preoedipal period. When she recognize her lack- the penis she must have to gain her mother’s love- she turns with hostility from her mother, represses her inappropriately phallic desire, takes her father as love object and i s thrust into the feminine position (Bernheimer 1 , p.28.)``.

In Dora`s case 2 , Freud does not only diagnosis a hysteria out of the cause of displacement, he also diagnosis bisexuality. The 19 years old Dora lives with her patents in one house. The mother seems to play a minor role in Doras life.[...]
