Do you know the difference between philosophy and psychology?

Everybody wants what they don't have.  Hell, a very old friend of mine (I met him back when he was just a little runt with a guitar) was/is in a band that had one of the largest selling records of all time.  (30 million copies to date) and he tells me that he envies my ability to just go out wherever and whenever I want.  I envy his bank account, (and his house, the pool is awesome).

Everybody wants what they don't have.

I don't believe in the theory the way Freud put it out there. But that doesn't mean there aren't individual girls who have been jealous of their brother's penis once or whatever. Or boys of something their sister had.

I remember when I was 6, my very female friend and I were talking, and she was like I wish I had a penis for one day... so I could see what its like to pee standing up! I was scared to tell her that I wanted one too, only forever. I dont know if that would be penis envy, but this post made me think of that.

Penis envy was a term used by Freud regarding girls loving their mothers.  Freud had this weird theory about boys and girls who love or hate their parents (basically suggesting they were 'in love with a parent, pretty gross stuff).  He analysed his patients dreams and so forth, pretty outdated stuff but he opened up the world of psychiatry and a huge can of worms with it.

The thing about Freud which is easy to forget these days is...
He was a man who had a limited information to work with in a day and age where no psychiatry existed what so ever.
Women came to him and talked to him about their problems, and he did something that no other doctor did at the time.
He listened to his female patients and didn't assume that there was something physically wrong with them just because they had their own desires, their own sexuality, their own minds.
He didn't prescribe hystorectomies to cure them of being sad, upset, stressed out, etcetera.

He made a lot of assertions and assumptions that have since been proven false, but he was the first doctor of his age to actually sit down and listen to the women that came to him for help. That counts for a lot in my mind.

well, penis envy as in:  being able to go outside and play instead of having to wash dishes or help make dinner  ?

I would think, I dont know, but what girls envy is the freedom boys have, not necessarly their penis.
