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

Ass, Bruh, and Energy: How dudes foul when y'all playing 21 and somebody got 19. ETS I hate playing 21 bruh. There’s always that one niqqa that play D1 football and built like Saquon Barkley that want to play 21. Boy skrong like Catcher Freeman and has the speed of a cheetah. His defensive commitment and hustle is what makes this player stand out. You can’t afford to box him out for a rebound. A elbow to the throat may be fatal and lead to serious injury in which you will not receive financial compensation for. This player is the toughest to guard due to their unorthodox playstyle and aggression. Jumpshot broke like call Of duty servers but still manages to make a impact on both sides of the floor. In this story I find myself in a situation where I’m playing 21 with some dudes at my local park. I got to 19 and failed to break ice twice. I got some Demarco Murray in the face ass guarding me. Boy got all the elite lockdown defender attritibutes with a boost. I watch too many hoop mixtapes. I wanted to hit him with the “cross curl tween tween hesi skip thru that lane filayyyy “. Boy was on me like white on rice and I had no left hand to fall back on. Once again the one handed bandit was forced to go left. I ended up doing “Cross head fake, travel travel” then here he come in mid air tryna snatch the ball from me. We both collided mid air. The sound of it ain’t even sound right. You ever take two pieces of chicken and slammed them together? Yea. I got into a whole car accident in mid air. The kinetic energy of the two of us was high. Boy I flipped over about 3 times in the air. Grown ass being tossed like a Krabby Patty. That boy got right back up with the rebound and layed it up. In the Hood You don’t stop unless there’s blood. Niggas played a whole game of 21 lIke my spine ain’t just hit a Fortnite emote. They shot so many bricks for game they built me a whole 4x4 . The park janitor had to come scoop me in a hand Truck. I got home by the grace of God fam. I called JP Morgan, I did not receive financial compensation.
