There was an episode of either Xena or Hercules where that universe's Aphrodite explained that being the Goddess of Love doesn't just involve sweet romantic love, but also crazy, stalkery, boil-your-bunny love. That must be what Aphrodite is tapping into here.
I wonder how Paula's reformation went over in the 40s? Marston was basically saying, during World War 2, that you can be an evil nazi mastermind, but as long as you're REALLY REALLY sorry, it's ok.
Ok, what he meant to say was that loving submission can make even evil nazi masterminds virtuous because it's JUST THAT GOOD.
