Syrup: Four types of women.
reblogging for character. and justice.
Hmm… same basic idea as the virgin/matron/hag archetypes you get in mythology. And after thinking about it, the hag archetype doesn’t seem to really be there in how modern people think - “old woman” is thought of as an older mother, or senile, and there’s not really the connotation of old lady magic anymore.
I’m not sure if slut and bitch are archetypes now in all senses of the word, but in terms of “what kinds of people there are”, she nailed it. (The way people tend to categorize people, I mean.)
And now I think about the male side of “what kinds of people there are”, and I don’t know. Will have to think on this.
