sky kangas

When people read such stories from a contemporary perspective, they tend to talk about repression and perversion. But Marston’s goal was to encourage children not to be repressed. He wanted his readers (young and old) to embrace their imaginations, whether it took them to sky kangas or ritualized spankings.

this is just so eeeeeehhhhhhHHHhhh like… i agree that it isn’t pathological for children to have proto-erotic interests and it is normal to do things like play doctor or tie up their barbies or whatever but i also think they should be left alone to do this and not be “encouraged” with concepts of sexuality put forth by adults
