  • This is a good idea but why specifically female narcissism, and not narcissism in general? Also, the Grimm fairy tales were not really intended for children originally. Although they were called 'Children's tales', many elements were thought inappropriate for children at the time and were changed throughout the tales' various editions. – Rachel Elfassy Bitoun 9 years ago
  • Female narcissism because it hasn't been covered before simply. Actually they were not originally aimed at children, but have been culturally adapted for them. – Yama144 9 years ago
  • ..also just add to that, that female narcissism is also prevalent within the Grimm Tales. – Yama144 9 years ago
