Children, Destiny, and God: I dig this for a couple of reasons. First, it's got great style. Perhaps more interestingly though, is that it's a very different tone as far as the direction of aggression. Most people know the Clash of the Titans version where she's on the hunt for him once he shows up. But let's face it, Medusa really gets the shaft from destiny overal She starts out as a priestess in a temple who gets raped by Poseidon and gets cursed for it as if it was all her fault. The result is that she's basically doomed to live without human contact for eternity. Then she's hunted down specifically for her head by a demigod whose got all sorts of great toys and backing to get the job done and depicted as some sort of horrible monster for defending her turf from folks out to kill her There are some really interesting theories about regarding just what the whole 'gorgon thing was really about from a historical perspective. It's really quite a tragic tale about the rise of patriarchy and the purge of goddess-centric worshipers. There are also parallels to the Apollo versus Typhon story which is part of the same0 era. Harsh. See, even the demystified stories from ancient times are fascinating! deviantart Medusa by "MattRhodes Reblogging for commentary I wish there were more nuanced portrayals of Medusa than as just a scary. snake lady Not to mention all this shit went down while she was pregnant with twins, the Pegasus and the giant Chrysaor, as a result from the rape Perseus would mount Pegasus, and use him and Medusa's head to kill a sea monster, thus winning him a wife, Andromeda. Medusa was cursed by the very goddess she served, Athena, who also gave Perseus the mirrored shield he used to slay her. Raped, betrayed by her god, hunted down like a beast in her own home while she was pregnant, her own children stolen from her and used to glorify and aide her killers and betrayers. And she's supposed to be the monster? ei That's hoW Greek men saw the myth. Greek women viewed it as Athena protecting Medusa by giving her the power to make any man who looked at her completely harmless. Her head was used as a symbol to mark women's shelters in ancient Greece. 。 Friendly reminder to remember that women have their own vivid lives and cultures and that the stories which are preserved today come through a heavy filter of gender, race, and class biases VIA THEMETAPICTURE.COM srsfunny:I Dig This For A Couple Of Reasons

Advice, Cats, and Clothes: From This Angle ANOVAN Not Just Kitten By ANNE WELSH After years spent in silence, I gather courage to speak out on one petty, relatively insignifieant aspect of campus fe that really irks me: the existence and attire of the mascot known as the Wild Kitten Women have been at Villanova now for over twenty ears. We have studied, partied, cheated, cheered with the best of Villanova's men. We did not complain about the urinals in Dougherty's ladies room, and the pain and suf fering endured trying to get the one and only facility for men in Tolentine. We put up with our business teacher ying we kept him from telling the many hilarious sexual anecdotes which he probably never had. We have made do with the poor share of athletic. funds and facilities that women's sports receive But asking us to continue to accept the Wild Kitten as the representative of women at Villanova is asking too much First of all, a female wildcat is not a wild kitten. This grammatical distinction has obviously escaped many people; the fact that kittens are much cuter than cats ap parently induces people who think of girls as a cuter (and weaker) version of boys to make this elementary mistake But when all is fed and done, kittens are merely young cats of either sex Second, female wildcats do not wear skirts. (This may surprise some who still separate the human sexes by the design of their clothes) Further, female wildcats do not sport black pantyhos either with or without garters. Neither do they normally stalk their prey decked out in a pair of high black boots Perhaps the slinky seductiveness of this curious Cen taur-in-reverse (head of an animal, legs of a girl) is sup posed to excite and upset the players on the other team. Perhaps the kitten kicking her boots and twirling her tail like a gentle whip is needed to psyche our fans into a ๒ frenzy. Perhaps the girl inside the suit (who actually is very good and very spirited) needs a free ticket to the games None of these reasons is quite up to seratch. Let's face it, the Wild Kitten is not only blatantly sexist, but just plain weird. Until we Wild Kittens?", we should just have one kind of mascot, the Wildcat, to represent all the Villanova fans. And let the fur fly where it will. e ready to start cheering 'Let's advice-animal: My mom wrote a hot take in 1974 about her college’s sexist mascot that’s depressingly still funny today.
