That's nothing. They have a Diamond Head in Hawaii that is 200,000 years old.

Ah, yes, the list of crimes that started with being a faithful, virginal servant of Athena, then being raped by Poseidon, then having Athena reward her by turning her into a hideous creature.

Yep, the tale of Medusa is a horrifying monster story. But she isn't the monster.

Written by Livia Borghese.

How appropriate.

Well, I guess at least no one wanted to rape her again afterwards?

It's not a real story, you know.

Honor killings in south Asia and the Middle East, on the other hand...

Nope, just a tale of archetypes, intended to illustrate how things should be. At least according to the people who invented the tale.
