One version of the #medusa myth tells of a monster made, not born. In this story, Medusa was a strikingly beautiful woman with long gorgeous hair, desired by many. She made the goddess Athena rage with jealousy and Poseidon...with lust. This violent combination didn’t bode well for poor Medusa. She was raped by Poseidon, then blamed and punished by Athena...who, enraged that Poseidon would violate her temple...didn’t punish him and instead turned Medusa into a monster...with hair of snakes and a stare that would turn a man to stone...🐍.
“I am an invisible monster, and I am incapable of loving anybody. You don't know which is worse.”
