I've been reading up on hans christian Anderson. He was the 19th century equivalent of an chronic masturbator.
He was bullied throughout childhood and teased for his looks. He didn't have any luck with women. He tried striking up a friendship with Dickens but blew it by coming on too strong and being too much of a massive sperglord.
>In Andersen's early life, his private journal records his refusal to have sexual relations.
>Andersen often fell in love with unattainable women, and many of his stories are interpreted as references. At one point, he wrote in his diary: "Almighty God, thee only have I; thou steerest my fate, I must give myself up to thee! Give me a livelihood! Give me a bride! My blood wants love, as my heart does!"
The ugly duckling is about himself and being bullied throughout childhood. It's one of those shut-in fantasies about the friendless loser growing up and becoming a big success, shoving it in the face of all the chads and Stacey's who wronged him. If Hans Christian Andersen had been born about 200 years later then chances are he'd have written something along the lines of Elliot Rodger's manifesto.
