  • AnonymousOops, sorry for misintepreting your intentions >_< Yeah, it's odd that people would interpret the scene in the 'gentleman's code' sort of way considering that Meg was deliberately leading him on esp in the last gif where Meg says he's perfect even though what he just did was back out of an uncomfortable situation. I didn't see those actions as empowering as it's the tired old 'femme fatale' trope being played but yeah she was supposed to lure Hercules to his death for Hades there so that's bad.
  • I totally agree. Tropes are hard to get away from.

    And my apologies for taking this scene out of context and forcing it into making my point. In doing so I have become the thing I despise. I always hate it when people do that.

  • AnonymousPart 2: In the actual story of Hercules, Hercules was the child of Zeus and Alcmene and his wife Hera was outraged( this happens to all the mortal women who get it on with Zeus, willing or not) and actually tried to prevent Alcmene from giving birth(but failed). When Hercules grew up he defended Thebes from enemies and was given the hand of a princess named Megara. But after she bore him a son and a daughter, Hera struck him with madness and he ended up killing Megara(she was his first wife).
  • Hi Anonymous!

    Thanks for commenting! I’m really glad that somebody is actually replying/talking about this. Also thanks for the brief recap on Greek mythology, too!

    Actually, I totally get what the post was about. I even agreed and laughed at the Zeus reply :D. But after reading and laughing at it all, it occurred to me: what if their gender was switched, Meg is the guy, and Herc is the girl. And Meg-guy advances made Herc-girl uncomfortable, or even threatened - I wonder if people of tumblr will be as positive with that scene?

    I just find it perplexing that when a guy does that, it’s inappropriate, but when a girl does it, it’s empowering for her? How is that equality? Shouldn’t everybody behave nicely as to not make the other person feel uncomfortable, regardless of gender? So what if Herc is a powerful demigod? Doesn’t his feelings count?

    That’s all I’m trying to say. Maybe I came across sounding like a dolt not getting the joke, but I blame that on my poor choice of phrasing.

    Thanks again for replying :)
