Paternal, maternal aunt: Who would you choose?

We always ask our children, “Who do you prefer between mum and dad?” It is always impossible to provide a response. However, it is easy to decide who to choose between a paternal and a maternal aunt.

The answer comes quickly and without hesitation. In most situations, the answer comes from the mother’s side in contemporary civilizations. “Loving and close,” says the aunt. The aunt is frequently called as “nasty.”

With the emergence of the Oedipus complex, our culture appears patriarchal but is actually feminine to the highest level. Because the aunt is also an aunt, the right answer to this question is that we love our mother more than our father.
