Why Everyone Needs To Lay Off My Girl Aphrodite

So I felt the need to address the issue of the modern day interpretation and portrayal of Aphrodite because I get seriously offended by some of these portrayals (looking straight at you Rick Riordan) as my love for Aphrodite has never known any bounds. And here is why:

Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, desire, and has also been associated with passion. She is known as the most beautiful of all the gods; she is also described as ill-tempered, easily offended, and vain, as well as being notorious for unfaithfulness. 

Sure, all of these may seem like what we would label as shallow traits in a woman and internalized misogyny seems to constantly debase her into a type of woman that is spited by society today. We also seem to associate everything she represents and her personality with weakness: that those who adhere to femininity, passion, beauty, and love are weak and cannot do much as they are not “frontline fighters.”

In fact, even in Greek myth, Aphrodite has had to face this sort of mentality. For example, in The Iliad, Aphrodite is wounded while protecting her son Aeneas and is scolded by Zeus to stay out of war affairs and that she should concentrate on marriages instead. Nobody seems to take into the account the extent to which Aphrodite’s power and influence extends.
