I remeber in 1st or 2nd grade the teacher read the book to us but i guess the pictures were too dark so we didnt finish it, all i know, it had to do with the wolf eating her along with the grandma and then a guy with a axe ripping (i think with his bare hands/axe but who knows) open the wolfs stomach open and free the girl and her grandma. And the book had pictures, and the pictures were in a somewhat realistic.but yeah lmao obviously not the best thing to show to little children

In the 17th &18th centuries brioche (bread made with eggs and butter in addition to flour, water, salt & yeast) was sometimes called "cake," as it was so much richer than ordinary country bread. Maybe that's what she was bringing her? Along with the wine, perhaps Grandma was going to treat her ailment with a nice wine and bread pudding. It would be even better if grandma had some extras like eggs, cream, fruit, nutmeg and perhaps a bit of rum to add to that pudding. I'm an amateur food historian. :)

Has anyone heard the theory that Red Riding Hood was a metaphor for either a girl/young woman's virginity / hymen? Or that it was a metaphor for a young woman's menstrual cycle? I'm not making this up or trying to be more graphic, I've heard these from others before...

You should do a video on the Grimms themselves. To me, they are literary heroes... not because they are creative or original but because they were instrumental in preserving many folk tales despite adding their own flavor.

My favorite version of the Red Riding Hood fable talked about in the video was the version by the Brothers Grimm. Also, while I didn’t find the Brothers Grimm version to be dark, I did find the two older versions, especially the one from Italy, to be rather messed up.

The story you were looking for from Greek Mythos is from Book 1 of Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Lycaon of Arcadia tried to trick Zeus, into eating human flesh but Zeus was like: hell naw. I smell human in that there soup and so now, imma turn you into a wolf, Lycaon. Savage AF.

Hansen Says Take A Seat
Hansen Says Take A Seat

The first written version of the Red Riding Hood tale was by French courtier, Charles Perrault, in 1697, at which time, in courtly slang, a young girl who lost her virginity was said to have ‘seen the wolf’. In this context, the wolf, as a predator of a young girl, acts a physical manifestation of the baser nature of mankind, the predatory male sexuality beneath the exterior façade of gentlemanly behaviour. He is an obvious predator merely just by being an animal which hunts for food, but his initial interactions with Little Red are cordial and friendly, belying his natural wolfishness as is externalised by his very form. Although in a literal sense he sees the young girl as a source of food, as a ‘juicy morsel’, this encounter draws clear parallels with the threat of a seducer, a man who politely attends to the maiden in society, but beneath his polished exterior lies a wolf, a beast who only wishes to ravage her. The desire to eat Little Red is therefore a symbolic expression of sexual desire, in that both express a desire to ‘consume’ female flesh. This notion is compounded by the encounter in which this desire is fulfilled happening in and around the bed, a site not just for sleep but for sexual consummation

The best version is my father's version XD The girls's name is Green Mary, she lived in the viklage next to our city and was supposed to go to the city to visit her grandpa. She takes her backpack, puts some beer, bread, hot dogs etc. (Basically every food my younger brother could think of) but she met a bear in the field (idk how that got there) who wants her to play chess and kill rabbits with him. It takes her an hour to get to her grandpa's place instead of the 20 minutes it was supposed to be. She got to her grandpa's place and they watched comedy shows together woth the bear becoming their best friend

Just FYI - the word slut has several meanings in the past, and doesn’t really mean someone (typically a woman) with loose morals. It was more akin to someone who’s lazy, dirty/unwashed and/or poor. I don’t think the cat was calling Red a ho, just a lowlife for eating her own grandmother.

I think red represents virginity but she turns into a harlot(why it’s her coat is red) when she follows up on the wolf’s advances. Like the whole thing is about loss of innocence and how young girls shouldn’t take on lewd advances/actions.

A little girl being asked to remove her clothing ONE PIECE AT A TIME? And then come into bed with "grandma"? This has the hallmark of a serial killer with a sexual fetish for young girls. Humans are spectacular, creative, wonderfully giving creatures. Humans are gross, evil, and despicable. We are all of this and more.
