“The secondary message is a mother’s love is more powerful than a father’s, and a mother’s death more profound.
Nobody talks about the secondary message because it is so ingrained.”
I completely detest this interpretation of the story. I dare you to suggest that my wife’s love for my child is any more than mine. Nobody talks about the secondary message, because there is no such message!! This is just being presumptuous and is neither about equality or about feminism.
