Thanks for watching, SoloFam! (☞゚ヮ゚)☞ Hope you liked this episode. While incredibly sad I thought it was fascinating how different Medusa was in the original myth. There's even MORE interesting lore about the gorgon species that I plan on getting into in a separate video when we start exploring mythological creatures! In the meantime I'd love for you to comment your thoughts on this episode and any suggestions you have for future videos! I've already got a LOT of ideas written down but Greco-Roman mythology alone is so expansive that the more directions you can point me in the better. I don't want to miss anything interesting as we progress through the series! Peace and love yous.

Bro. The whole “Medusa was a victim of the gods” is false. While the story I know is Medusa willing banged with posiden in Athena’s temple and then got turned into a gorgon but in the comments it also seems like she was born one so idk about that but Medusa a victim? Nah

This story is so dynamic, I feel I have to relisten!?? I will have to come back after listening to more of your videos! :D ! I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! how there is a seemingly growing family of fellow mythology lovers on youtube! Thanks so much for being straight forward, yet also descriptive and interesting in your portrayal?! Your style gives JUST enough information to spark the imagination, yet force the listener to do some more research of their own...WHICH is exactly how it should be done! CONGRATS brother! - A new subscriber! :)

Well another interpretation is that athena could not punish poseidon for raping her priestess. So she turn medusa so she could always defend herself from men. It's more alike with athena fair nature. Also it explains why medusa's head is used in female shelters

Some people are now putting this story in a new light, saying that Athena, being a Goddess of knowledge, could have gave it to her not as a curse but as a blessing. You are turned into a lady with snakes for hair, and the ability to turn anyone into stone at the look of an eye. It is all the protection in the world from evil doers who dare come seek her out. But, it would still be all the shame that she couldn’t socialize normally with anyone anymore. To just be a priestess of Athena again. Medusa always deserved better than what she got. She inspires me somehow.

Maybeline is a name made from a woman who mixed coal with vasoline. Her brother marketed it and dubbed it maybeline. This fact can be found on the submarine the clamagore whose engine (one of two/three) is named maybeline.

Greek Gods are basically evil. None of them are purely virtous. Olympians are the worst. Compare to Titans and Primordials.

Back in my 2nd hundred years, while I was in college, I had a wonderful Humanities Professor. She began to explain weather by telling the story of Hades, Persephone, and Demeter. She ended by saying that we could just blindly follow science but that now we know 'the truth'! Yes, I am that old. Aunt B

I always thought the 4th version of Medusa's transformation makes the most sense - if not from the canonical male perspective, but from the canonical female one - firstly, Athena is the goddess of wisdom, and has had problems with Poseidon since she burst out her father's head, would she really think he didn't rape her priestess who's crying on her temple floor? And then, the self-defence theory kicks in, when one remembers that greek and roman shelters for abused women had a depiction of Medusa's head above the entrance, to ward of men who sought to do them harm. But as we often get our canonical myths and tradition from the dominant part of society, and the men certainly were not going to cast themselves as the villains, were they?
