Freud also expanded on the idea of the Electra Complex. You females (I assume) don't get away scot free.
I, personally, think the whole concept is ridiculous, regardless the person's sex. However, the play on words works better with the Oedipal complex ('mother' rhymes with 'other'). I shouldn't have to explain this to you.
I don't think the concept is actually that ridiculous, I think Freud just put it in the wrong terms. But to explain that fully, I'd need to be a lot more awake.
