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

Alive, Crying, and Dad: staganddragon Soft things my dad has done .One time when he was 18, he was fishing and found a baby salamander someone had tried and failed to use as bait. It had a huge gash in its side and didn't look like it would make it. He put it in the bucket he was going to put fish in and took it home, then performed "surgery" on the little guy to mend the gash. It couldn't move, so my dad fed it and nursed it back to health until the gash was healed. Since he'd taken it in as a baby, it wasn't equipped to stay alive in the wild, so he kept it in a giant aquarium next to his bed. It stayed alive until my sister was bom six years later .His dad took him deer hunting once when he was in middle school. They hunted all day and never saw a single deer. At the end of the day as the sun was setting, they found one, and my dad yelled at my grandpa not to shoot it because it didn't deserve to die. He hasn't been deer hunting since Two peopleI used to be best friends with don't have stable parents. My dad takes them out for lunch and out fishing regularly, and even though I am not friends with either of them anymore, he still makes time for them as if they were his own kids. . .Sometimes I catch him crying at videos of dogs on the internet .One time he was crying and I asked him what was wrong and he gave me . He told me that if (if) he dies, he wants to die by being drowned in a horde .Hemakes sure to say I love you" to my mom and me every day, because a hug and said there isn't always a reason. I've held on to that. of puppies because otherwise, what's the point? he once told me he never once heard it from his parents as a kid. Saw my mom looing at a bird, so he found out what kind of bird it was and drew a picture of it for her Heard me crying after a hard day and brought me a box of milk duds, because even though I'm lactose intolerant, it was an occasion on which they were needed Shows me every day that men who feel allowed to be open, vulnerable soft, and emotional are so much happier than men who are told to keep it all inside .

Books, Confidence, and Douchebag: Why Do Men Keep Putting Me in the Girlfriend- Zone? You know how it is, right, ladies? You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him-play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts. You invite him to your parties. You listen to h problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend But then, then comes the fateful moment where you find out that all this time, he's only seen you as a potential girlfriend. And then if you turn him down, he may never speak to you again. This has happened to me time after time: I hit it off with a guy, and, for all that I've been burned in the past, I start to think that this one might actually care about me as a person And then he asks me on a date I tell him how much I enjoy his company, how much I value his friendship. tell him that I really want to be his friend and to continue hanging out with him and talking about our favorite books or exploring new restaurants or making fun of avant-garde theatre productions. But he rejects me. He doesn't answer my calls or e-mails, if we'd been making plans to do something before this fateful incident, these plans mysteriously fail to materialize. (This is why I never did get around to seeing the Hunger Games movie. Not to name any names, but thanks a lot, Tom.) Later, when I run into him at social events, our conversations are awkward and kewarm. This is because the moment we met, he put me in the girlfriend- zone, and now he can't see me as friend material. I must say that I find this really unfair. I mean, I'm a nice girl. I have a lot to offer as a friend, like not being a douchebag and stuff. But males just don't want to be friends with nice girls like me. They can't help it, I guess; it's just how they're wired, biologically. Evolution conditioned our male hominid ancestors to seek nice girls as mates and form friendship bonds only with the other dudes that they hunted mammoths with. It's true- know this because I studied hominids in my fifth-grade science class. So what's the answer? Should I take up mammoth-hunting in an attempt to appeal to the friendship centers of men's primal lizardbrains? Should keep making guy friends" and then prevent them from making a move on me by subtly undermining their self-confidence? Should I just give up on those manipulative, game-playing, two-faced bastards once and for all? don't know. I mean, I'd really like to have a true friendship with a guy someday, but it's so hard to trust and respect them when they never say what they mean-and you never know when you might be relegated to the girlfriend-zone DATINGFAILS ORG Why do men keep putting me in the girlfriend-zone?
