Misogyny In Modern Hellenismos


This is a pretty insightful post on modern paganism and the way Modern culture views Greco Roman culture 2,000 years after it’s decline. Ideals of what Rome was and what Greece was, and who those people were, still has modern relevance in many discourses. Yes, this can be REDUCED to a matter of artistic debate…but should it be?

The Heart of the Matter

Misogyny: Hatred, dislike, or mistrust of women.

It all started with a photo posted in a public Facebook Hellenic Polytheist group of a former playmate/porn star laying back, spread eagle, showing off her personal grooming preference. All in praise of Aphrodite.

The photograph was immediately reported to Facebook for its pornographic content and was deleted, and then, the flood gates of misogyny came pouring out.

In that one day, in that one group, there were four posts about women’s “bush”. Four posts talking about the aesthetics of a woman shaving or “going natural”.

Four posts, people.

Four posts.

Three of the four posts were headlined with a photo of a woman’s “bush”.  Two of them were of ancient statues with no other description of the photo other than “bush”.

I commented in response to one of these photos and this is what ensued:
