2023.04.01 16:26 sharkpencil i want to be a teacher ?

hi there! i’m a college freshman who has recently discovered that being an elementary school teacher encompasses literally all of my favorite things. i love planning to excess, i love making a space that is cozy, comfortable, and functional. i love helping people and teaching people things. i love kiddos! i work at a library at my college right now, and every time i get to decorate a whiteboard or put up a sign or explain our catalogue to a patron, i feel good about myself and like i’m doing something worthwhile. i’m currently a linguistics major (i had zero career plans for this major, i just love languages and needed to declare something) and i don’t intend on making any sudden decisions in joining my colleges elementary education program without proper consideration. i had this realization a month or so ago and have spent the time since then researching and reading about the profession online. obviously in doing that research i have come across so many teachers who are deeply unhappy and discouraging young people from going into the profession. i also know that teachers don’t get paid what they deserve in most parts of the us.
in my head, i would love being a teacher to second or third graders and i would love for it to work out, but i know that i can’t fully understand why teachers are so unhappy without having experienced teaching. i was wondering if maybe some actual elementary school teachers (you guys) would be willing to offer some advice or insight.

2023.04.01 16:15 TraparCyclone I passed my doctoral defense!

My family is low income and I’m the first person in my family to go to college. It took me 4 years of work on my undergraduate degree, and then 6.5 years of graduate school but I finally defended yesterday!
I’ve wanted a doctorate since I was in elementary school and it’s still so crazy to me that I’ve finally earned it! And that it gets to be in History makes me even happier.
As much as I’d like to say all I had to do was put my mind to it, but I had a lot of support from family, friends, and educational programs and I never would have made it this far without them!

2023.04.01 15:57 Thedailybee Parent questionnaire/report

Hey all! I’m trying to piece my life together as many of us probably are. My issue is that I do not remember most of my childhood. I remember weird little quirks here and there like the time at 5 I ran into a door, got a huge cut on my face and didn’t cry😂 or how they all teased me for consistently putting too much food in my mouth at once and chewing with my front teeth but like I don’t know when I started walking or talking. I didn’t go to school until I was 5 going into kindergarten. My “best friend” was my mom’s best friends daughter. I don’t know if I played pretend well but I do remember always wanting to be the baby or the dog (it was so much easier than being a big sister or a mom or a dad lol). I don’t know if I made eye contact or what other behaviors I may have shown. I also only have one report card from elementary school from 1st grade which offered very little (side note if anyone has any insight on getting elementary school records from 20 years ago please feel free to share bc I’d love mine if possible)
That said obviously I need to ask my mom about it bc she was always around. I don’t want to bombard her with individual questions. Does anyone know of a good but quick questionnaire I could send her? I also have 4 brothers and I was the “good kid” so I do not have high hopes of her accurately reporting every little thing I may have done but I can’t remember much before middle school so I need some insight to the things I can’t recall at all. Even my middle and high school memory is shot 😭

Letters of Recommendation
  1. English Teacher (10/10): super close with him. we talk weekly about both academic and non-academic things; he was close to my sibling as well and knows my family. he's known for writing fantastic recs and explicitly stated that mine was the best this year. he read a part to me - very personal. so thankful for this one
  2. Calc Teacher (6-7/10): taught me two years & kept in touch this year. was a strong student and participated, but didn't really stand out. probably generic
  3. Engineering Teacher (9/10): she's known me for 7 years; was my mentor & coach for basically every science activity. very close to her and she wrote about pretty unique things, but she was only my teacher pre-high school so used as an additional rec when possible.
  4. Research Mentor (8/10): we were fairly close; she knew a lot about my non-research activities and expressed that I was a very strong intern. used this anywhere that accepted additional recs.
Had one for MIT, Stanford, Duke, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, WashU, Rice
They were all 7-8/10; none really stood out to me other than my MIT interview, which was almost 3 hours long and also my first interview lol... everything else I think I connected solidly with each but nothing exceptional
- common app (7.5/10) was about my job as a bobarista and how making drinks changed my mindset towards breaking out of my comfort zone... lowkey kind of stupid but the writing was ok
- spent 2 months on MIT supps but they ended up over-edited and not genuine. they were my first supps written so not the best
- basically every non-ivy was a copy pasted essay that was slightly edited (6-7/10)
- yale, duke, harvard i spent a good amount of time on; very school-specific and personal (8/10)
- i think my stanford supps were the realest things i've ever written so was a bit disappointed about being waitlisted (10/10 lol)

overall i could've spent a much longer amount of time on my essays, but since i was shotgunning i didn't have as much time to use. i really recommend saving your top schools for the end, since you'll have much better ideas and experience with writing/drafting and your essays will be more genuine. if you'd like to see specific essays or want more advice feel free to dm.
i'm also not the best personal writer :(
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Additional Information:
Overall very happy with my results and I'm planning on committing to Yale! But with all my waitlists and scholarship finalists, I feel like if I did just a bit more I could've broken into that highest bracket. Nonetheless, super excited - will be hoping to get off of Stanford's waitlist - and I'd love to answer any questions/provide any advice! (Speaking of advice, I've always wanted to mentor some people through the college process for free but am I even qualified to do that lol... lmk)

2023.04.01 15:01 mmc312615919 Interview help

Hi! I am currently doing my states alternate route program to become a certified art teacher. I’m also an assistant teacher at an elementary school. There’s an opening for a middle school art teacher close by and I’d like to apply, but I’m super nervous and feel like there’s so much I don’t know about teaching in general. What kind of questions are often asked in art teacher interviews? Is there anything extra I should bring? I plan to bring a few lesson plans, possibly some of my portfolio work. I haven’t had the chance to teach art lessons to the grade I’m working in, so I don’t have student samples currently.

2023.04.01 14:43 Royismydog Co-teachers don’t like me… What can I do?

I am a first year teacher at a charter school. I was hired very last minute this year, they planned to have a long term sub in my classroom because they could not find anyone to hire. I had subbed at this school on and off for two years, and asked about the position. It was quickly given to me.
My connection to this school starts with my sister. I started subbing there because she was one of the APs. She has since become the elementary principle. In the beginning of the school year I felt bad about this, like I was only there because we were related (and honestly that is partly true. I was hired so quickly because they knew me personally). But since then I have grown so much as an educator. I get staff shoutouts constantly for my classroom management (I think I just have an awesome group of kids), interacting with tough students with patience and empathy, collaborating with specials teachers, and being reflective of my classroom practices.
As a first year teacher, I feel pretty good. And when I start to feel unsure of myself, it seems that the people around me are always able to reassure me that I’m doing great.
I say all of this to say, I don’t think the other teachers like me. Admin, the exceptional ed team, and my second grade team are always friendly. But most other teachers are cold towards me. A recent interaction (that has me bothered with this), is a third grade teacher refusing to speak to me. She walks up and down the hallway all morning, telling teachers hello. I stand out in the hallway too and told her good morning because she was just staring at me. She looked me up and down and kept walking.
My contract was renewed and I’m coming back next year, but I need to figure out a way to fix this issue. I would hate to go another year with teachers being cold towards me. I am not sure if any of you have experience with this, and maybe I just care too much. I just figure if I am there all day, I would like for the other adults around me to not feel poorly about me.

2023.04.01 14:37 Fried_Lion Chindo Stereotypes

Hello there! I'm u/Fried_Lion, today I won't terrorize you with my polls but instead talk about my story as a chindo and chindo stereotypes in general.
You know the basics, right? Rich, toko, businessmen, work ethics, stingy, private school (either religious or secular), either Buddhist or Christian (or muslim and other religions, they're small fractions), and the list goes on. Today, I will talk about my personal experience as a chindo male living in a major city. Most of this story will be about my maternal Chinese Hokkien family, as I hate my paternal family due to inheritance matters and personal animosity (and I think the feeling is mutual).
The first generation (my great-grandparents) came from Southern China in the early 1900s with almost nothing and settled in the rural areas at first then they moved to the city for more opportunities. The second generations (my grandparents) did not fared much better, they cannot get any education as they were forced to work and help their parents from an early age. The third generations (my mother and her siblings) were quite mixed, my grandparents had 9 childrens (actually 10 but 1 died in infancy) and the first 5 had to work as hard as their parents, my mother herself was the fifth child and she was lucky enough to be educated till the high school level, after her the four youngest who were all males were all able to be educated to high school and university levels.
After the fall of Big S, my younger uncles graduated from university and started working. My third uncle married his love, the daughter of his boss. That was the start of my family's glory. Soon after he got assigned to help his father in-law and after a few years founded his own companies. This started a chain of business and job creations, with my second uncle also marrying a rich woman. The second and third uncle helped the fourth and fifth get started in the business world and they all eventually became successful businessmen with companies in many sectors. (They were also partially helped by my eldest aunty immigrating to Taiwan and sending remittances to help her family)
I and my cousins (the fourth generation) were lucky to be born during a time of wealth and prosperity. We were all able to be educated to the bachelor's degree and beyond, some even got the chance to study abroad. The third generation put a lot of importance into the next generation's education, they were stingy in other parts but for education they didn't hesitate to spend money. I myself got educated all my life in a Christian private school (despite the fact in Buddhist), to get an idea of what the school look liked just see the MV of High School in Jekardah but more chindos and paler in color because the school is quite old.
One thing I remembered from my early education was that they got a Computer Lab in Kindergarten (I was like whyy?) and they are only used for playing educational childrens game (i think tablets would be cheaper and better for that purpose. Moving on, in the fourth or fifth grade I started selling ATK in the school and that brought me quite the money for an elementary schooler, so I guess the chindo working spirit and thirst for money 😉. I stopped temporarily in the sixth grade due to the unlucky experience of my father's death (this caused the problems with my paternal family). I continued this business in the following grades and gained reputation for being a sly businessmen and marketer amongst my peers. I also gained the title of "Richest student in the school" but I only think that's true if it only counted self-made wealth.
So, what do you think of my story and chindo stereotypes in general? (Bonus for fellow chindos: what is your own story with chindo stereotypes?)
Thank You
Fried Lion, out

2023.04.01 14:23 ThrowRAmrboogieboo My (36M) wife (34F) is trying to make me make peace with her brother (37M)

I (36M) have been married with Jenny (34F) for a bit over 10 years, we have been dating since our second year of college. We are a good couple and, excluding when his brother is involved, we rarely argue.
Jenny has a brother, Mark (37M). Mark is/was, for lack of better words, an AH.
We were in the same classroom ( same year, he was born in January, I was born in November) from elementary school until the end of high school. He was a bully of the worst kind and, while I wasn't one of his victims, one of my dearest friends was so my hatred and disgust for Mark was quite deep.
I didn't know Jenny was his sister when we started dating ( the college was in another city and their surname is pretty common. What are the chances?) and I admit, when I actually found out she was his sister, I briefly thought about breaking up with her to not have to deal with him ( luckily, I didn't ).
Jenny loves her brother and, while she is the first who reprimands him when he does something wrong, she still cares about him and, apparently, he is at least a decent brother.
In the years we were together, I never hid my disdain toward Mark and Jenny has tried multiple times to make us get along. Her attempts were... useless, to say the least.
In spirit of reconciliation, I tried to give Mark a chance around the time me and Jenny got engaged and, as I suspected, he showed his true color pretty soon: he was still the same disrespectful AH I spent my childhood with.
I never intervened in Mark's and Jenny's relationship ( they are brother and sister, as long as he doesn't do something dangerous, I will keep my mouth shut) but I made myself clear on the fact I don't want to have any interaction with him. I will tolerate his presence during the festivities or when we go to her parents' house if he is there too but, except for those 2 occasions, I don't want him in my house.
For the most part, Jenny respected my decision... until 2 months ago.
Apparently, from what she and their parents told me, Mark has "turned over a new leaf" and is trying to make amends for having been an AH for 36 years. I don't know if it's the truth or if he is just putting up a facade but the point is that Jenny is trying to convince me to give him another chance.
While my heart tells me "Why bother? Don't do it.", in spirit of reconciliation I maybe should give him a chance. It's been over 10 years since the last time and maybe, MAYBE, he is indeed changed.
I need advices on what to do in case I decide to give him a chance and, if I don't, advices on how to deal with Jenny mostly.
Thank you in advance.
TLDR: Apparently my ex bully brother-in-law turned over a new leaf and my wife insists I give him a chance. What should I do?

2023.04.01 14:15 Waterpuffs My identical twin sister stopped wetting the bed and I didn’t

I’m just wondering if anyone here has experienced a similar situation. I (27F) have overactive bladder and still wet the bed 4-5 times a week. Growing up my identical twin sister and I both struggled with bladder control. Elementary school accidents happened a handful of times for both of us, and we both wet the bed until we were 12. But then she started doing it less and less and grew out of all of it by the time she was 13… and I didn’t. I’m now 27 and I STILL wet the bed. I was also diagnosed with overactive bladder and get strong sudden urges to use the bathroom during the day, while my twin does not. We both exercise, we both eat healthy and we both have no other health problems. I’m just extremely frustrated and embarrassed thinking that someone with my same DNA figures out how to stop it and I can’t seem to. Not necessarily bedwetting, but has anyone else dealt with a twin who was able to accomplish you haven’t?

2023.04.01 13:46 ShameDeletingSoSpare Red flags ?

So I think I'm trans. But I'm still pre-everything and I'm seeking red flags, to see if I am really, or if I got something that makes me think I'm trans. I was recently diagnosed with autism but idk how it changes things, and I don't currently care, I'm not even completely convinced. I'm not able to remember the time accurately, so I might be wrong.
My earliest memory of wanting to be a girl go back to elementary. I'm not sure if that memory is real, but I remember searching how to become a girl on Google, trying a hypnosis audio, and ended up being found by my sister. I have another memory of that time, I think it was before that first memory, but it could have been after, where I watched H2O, a TV show about mermaid, that made me want to be one.
Then, later in elementary, I ended up searching "gender bending" anime. It was also, unfortunately, due to that search that I was introduced to hentai. When I didn't find any anime, I tried to search more, and found a "gender bending" hentai that I still remember.
I didn't always consumed "gender bending" fiction, I mostly played video games. During middle school, I think I began to feel depression. I remember once attempting, not seriously, suicide by water intoxication. I thought that I would either end up stop existing, reincarnate (was into isekai novel), or something else and looking at possible outcomes, it would be worth it. Botched it, apart from not being hungry the whole day, it didn't do anything. I also
The trend gradually inversed. Instead of playing video games and sometimes watch "gender bending" fiction, I mostly read "gender bending" fiction, then read non "gender bending" fiction, and played video games. I remember two times when I instead spend time on twitter. Once during the beginning of covid, and another before, for no real reason.
After a while, the trend changed again, mostly reading non "gender bending" fiction, and sometimes "gender bending". Almost never playing video games. I rationalised wanting to be a girl so much with "girl are better" and "girl/women are better aesthetically than boy/men". For wanting woman's genitals, I rationalised it as "the penis is completely useless, superfluid, apart from peeing while standing up, that I don't really care about it. As such, a vagina would be better. Period would be bad but there are options to stop it". If I managed to live until independence, I already wanted to get laser hair removal and be castrated (wanted orchiectomy but I thought it was illegal or something for some reason).
Then, at 15, I learned the existence of hrt. When I discovered it, I felt like it was exactly what I wanted, and that there were no way that I wouldn't do it in my life. Seeking more information, I didn't know how my parents would react and I knew my mom would want certainty, I sought more information and found the trans subreddit. I don't remember what content I saw exactly, but I think they weren't relatable. I don't know if I found the detrans sub, but I don't think I did.
It was the only time I remember feeling motivation to do something, to focus on the real world. I didn't manage to come out (I was also "afraid" of change in our almost non existent relationship), so I forgot about hrt. Still wanted to be a girl, just forgot it was possible. A year later, I hear from my mom about a clerk that is transitioning. It makes me remember hrt, and makes me go back to trans sub. This time, I find the detrans sub, the transmed sub, end up on politics sub and politics on twitter, and manage to come out. Honestly, I don't know how I would feel being seen as a girl and a lot of other things, but hrt I sure want it. I also regularly think about killing myself, not seriously. I won't though. I slso feel like life is too restrained, limited. Honestly, even if I saw red flags, I think I would still want hrt.

🤬 is there something in the water?! another nonstatus teacher informs me that two of my students are talking to each other in the hallway and are not following her instructions which tbh is a day that ends in Y. important context: her instruction is in English and they only understand Spanish. I send them back to their testing rooms and she says, “when students ignore me and continue to speak in a language they know I don’t understand, they are being assholes” UM! GOODBYE!!!

One kid takes off so I call security to let them know he would benefit from a check-in. the other student begins texting threats to his buddy and goes off on me when I tell him to stop. what is happening?!

Grand totals:
reflection: typical week money-wise in terms of reflecting my non-house spending – I’m saving really aggressively right now and don’t have a lot of money for discretionary spending. Even if I did, I’m very much a homebody during the work week. My job is probably more stressful than most as a baseline but this week was truly unbelievably bad. Still, looking through the week and taking time to step back I realize just how quality my support network is and for that I'm very grateful.

2023.04.01 12:48 Princess__Nell Not like other girls

Does anyone else get bothered by the animosity directed at “not like other girls”.
In some of the women only subs on reddit I read so much hate directed at the women that feel ostracized from womanhood.
From elementary school onwards it was other girls rejecting me and telling me I’m not like them. I didn’t easily understand the more complex social interactions required after 3rd grade.
I can’t help but feel like Autistic women are often the ones that end up labeled “not like other women” and then harangued for not being like other women and supporting the ya ya sisterhood.
Am I the only one that struggles with this?
I wish so hard I could be like other girls or women. I wish so hard I knew how to.

2023.04.01 12:25 WorthApprehensive286 I finally found out what having true friends is like. How can I be a good friend back?

I've always only had one friend at a time; one at elementary school, one at gymnasium. And even those were very surface ones, we were very dependent on each other and we both had a lot of mental issues - not healthy ones. We also never hungout after school (because I wasn't allowed to) so I was isolated for the majority of my day at home. I never truly learned how to be close to people, love and care for them or even myself.
Now, I (22) finally found some great people that I love but I'm scared I'll lose them, because I don't know how to be a good friend. I don't know how often to reach out, if I'm being supportive enough, what to expect from them either, etc. I'd love to hear your tips or ideas on how to improve this.

2023.04.01 12:05 jatingill education funding usa

As the level of literacy in India rises, there’s an increasing demand for education financing. Schools are of high quality and increasing due to the growing recognition of the importance of education for everyone. Elementary education or schooling can have a significant impact on the daily lives of people. It is an integral element and therefore, the very first step in the development process. Education is the most critical factor to success. Funds are needed to support education’s social impact and help create India wholly educated. You can support schooling of underprivileged children in India via Lotus Petal Foundation.

2023.04.01 12:00 coolnavigator The Masculinity Dialectic


To understand some concepts I'm going to use, I would invite everyone to listen to this video. It's a reading of "Feeling Is The Secret" by Neville Goddard. You can obviously just get the book as well. It's only 44 pages. I think it happens to be something that works well as listening material for a 30 minute walk or drive. This is introductory material for self-initiation into the mysteries of the ancients. It outlines how one develops intent, after which the subconscious turns this intent into reality (internal reality), after which the self more or less acts automatically (still with conscious choice but an inherent limited capacity) to turn the internal reality into external reality. You may recognize its argument as being similar to popular book "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, but Goddard's treatment is far more profound and detailed, and it's only getting started!
I also suggest studying archetypes, which is really just symbolic/abstract psychology. A few avenues: Carl Jung, Jordan Peterson, Tarot cards, ancient pantheons from Scandinavia to Rome to Sumer, "tree of life" myths from Scandinavia to the Jewish Kabbalah, and other similar systems. Also useful are the dualistic concepts of the Chinese Yijing (philosophy of change).
I'm going to try to put all of these together and arrive back at the original question of masculinity and the damage currently done.

The Mind

At a very early stage in one's life, the mind is whole. There are no separate archetypes — just one thing. Over time, the mind divides. At a physical level, the more obvious and significant division is the left/right hemisphere divide. At an archetypal level, it is the father / mother (or simply masculine/feminine) figures and the hero / adversary figures. I believe you can keep going with no real end. Every "figure" or archetype in the mind can be divided into two more, allowing for an infinite variety of models that the self is developed from. Within the father, you can develop the good father, the bad father, the strict but fair father, the hippie but wise father, etc. Same with the variations on the mother. I won't list out all of these variations but instead focus on the first level to really illustrate how this works.
What's actually happening here? I believe the fathemother divide isn't truly based on gender, but the genders do have a typical expertise in one or the other. Based on Goddard's description of the process from visualization to physical reality, there are two major steps: the creation of want (deciding what you want and visualizing it before bed) and the realization of want (the dream-state where the subconscious is trained on the feelings produced before bed). The creation step is the "masculine" part, which "impregnates" the subconscious with feelings to be realized. The realization step is the "feminine" part, which "births" a "new mind" (or "new life", if we are using reincarnation terminology) when you wake up. Roughly speaking, this implies the conscious part of the mind is "masculine" and the subconscious part of the mind is "feminine". I'll just say this one last time: the genderization of these parts of the mind are firstly symbolic of their role in the creation of the self, and secondly may or may not contain some truth as to how the two genders' minds work slightly differently.
The other dualistic concept is the hero / adversary. As in the Egyptian Osirian tradition, Horus (the hero) is merely a reincarnation of his father (Osiris, the father figure). Thus, the hero is merely the "newborn" conscious mind upon waking up. Given that the conscious self (the ego) can adhere to its predetermined code (from prior training in the subconscious), or it can go against that code, you naturally have a hero vs adversary contrast within the conscious mind. The adversary is simply the self which denies all assumptions, all ideals, all past truths. This is not strictly "bad", although it could be bad in some situations. More commonly, this is merely depicted as mischievousness in myth, and it is very useful, important for things like creativity.
Now, it's time to discuss where we are at as a society and what the real meaning of the memetic trends are.

The Change

The primary symbolic change in western culture is the "bad father" (or toxic masculinity). This has created a dialectic:
This leads to a diminishing amount of people who:
What all of this really means is our thought processes are fundamentally limited. The "masculine" is the conscious self, the "feminine" is the subconscious. In preferring the subconscious and in turning the conscious into an anti-social beast, we are a ship lost at sea. The conscious self isn't directing the ship towards its rightful destination (truth, virtue, human goodness), and the subconscious isn't able to steer the ship alone. A full human needs both of these parts. Without both, were are in some way inhumane. Barbaric, partial humans.

Historical Origins

It's beyond the scope of this to fully describe the origins of such a cultural shift. However, I will outline a few places to look and draw a loose connection through time. This isn't meant to be a proof, but a roadmap to guide the reader for further research (with personal verification).
There were two distinct types of attacks on authority in the past 500 years.
These two groups claim to have a common enemy, an authoritarian elite, but their actual philosophies differ greatly.
As you can see, these two views are diametrically opposed. One views the creative power of humanity as essentially good, albeit flawed. The other views the creative power of humanity as essentially bad. You can see this thoroughly in modern and post-modern art, which acts as a parody to the human condition. It is consumed as the contrived, vain laugh by the very bourgeois that it claims to oppose. This self-hating (or completely out of touch, if they don't realize their own hypocrisy) class of people rules our current society as "the establishment", "the cathedral", "the regime". They are more directly left wing, but they are thoroughly within the right wing and thus represent both choices in our false dialectic of not only our political process, but the morals of our society as a whole.
To return to our cultural shift, the "bad father" arises from an attack by the collectivist schools of thought on all of society for the sins of a small minority. One way of elucidating this is: a few men at the top did some bad things, so all men are bad. It wasn't immediately like this, however. It started with the idea of: "if some Catholic leaders are bad, then all Catholic leaders are" (Reformation). Then, "if some men are unfairly attaining higher status after birth than other men, then all men are essentially cheating themselves from this theoretical 'blank slate' of existence" (Lockean philosophy). Then, "if some corporations (or owners of capital) are out of control, then all of them are" (Marxism). On and on, into the 20th century where we saw arguments by people such as Marcuse to return to a state of primitive sexuality and by feminists to return to a state without even a concept of gender to the latest thoughts, which outright make the claim that men are the enemy of all people, particularly any men which cling to any of the older modalities.
This is a war on human reason, which is a war on human nature itself. Nietzsche saw this as a fusion of the Apollonian and the Dionysian. There are two equivalent ways of breaking down that terminology, but the intent is the same. Perhaps the Dionysian is the good and pure masculine figure, whereas the Apollonian is the adversary figure, thus making the preference for the Apollonian a sort of highly masculine, bad father-esque philosophy. Perhaps the Apollonian is masculinity as a whole, and Dionysian is the femininity as a whole (albeit depicted as a male Dionysus because, ya know, Greeks). Either way, the point is that you need a balance of these figures. And so, to return to the original quote I used as theme "God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.", the gist is that an imbalance was created, either by killing a holistic concept of a unified "god" in the self (creating the male vs female dialectic), or by assigning this "god" concept to either the conscious or subconscious part of the mind. As stated above, the clear meaning of Nietzsche's arguments is the creation of the dialectic, the splitting of the whole, and the imbalancing of the the bicameral mind in everyone.
