I think your insight is good, however, how in the world could you sexualize it and say only daughters? Certainly, it applies to men of such mothers as well, and I cannot understand this over-reaching of feminism and introspection where you somehow think you are being scientific/academic and leave out that males are hurt equally by bad mothers. It is a paradigm in our society that "mothers are good" by nature, and I applaud you for seeing that they certainly are not - but why make it only about daughters other than being self-serving and sexist??
