Martin Grotjahn

Where an organ is invested with libido we say it has been libidinized or cathected. We know that a libidinization may tend to diminish anxiety. We do not have a verb in the terminology to describe what occurs when an individual is threatened with castration. He becomes 'anxious' or 'is placed' in a state of anxiety but there are no specific terms. It is proposed to call such a state 'terrorization of libido'. The tale of Snow White is a striking example of this process of terrorization.
