I'm really not exactly sure what about Aset in these particular myths bugs me so much, but She does.  I think it might be partly to do with the fact that:
 
1.  I myself am really not a maternal-type woman at all, and so Her actions are probably really beyond the scope of my understanding


2.   My mom works in a high school and I hear stories almost daily about parents that think that THEIR kid is SO damn special, the rules don't/should not apply to their pwecious iddle child, and they can do NO wrong.  And you hear no end to them butting in where they shouldn't, trying to manipulate the system for their brats, trying to force everyone to let their child be the best whether the kid actually IS, blaming the teachers for the CHILD'S failures, etc.  Kinda the whole "soccer mom" thing.

I guess where some people might see "strong loving mother-figure" in the myths, I see just "sneaky underhanded soccer mom."

Huh. 

Well, there are two if not three levels to myths in Kemetic religion and the literal myth is only one way to read it.  I guess I'm just reading it as a person who follows Aset and you're reading it from a "sacred narrative of someone else" point of view.

I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --Me
