    Medusa was doing something bad with Poseidon in Athena's temple and was punished by having snakes as her hair

    This question was asked ages ago and in that time I have learned the story. . . . Medusa was raped and because Athena was supposedly "one of the guys" she took Poseidon's side and punished Medusa . . . Which is really unfair. typical woman who hates women.

    Well the the truth is we do not know exact details because it was soloing we have to try to put the pieces together, so for all we know we could be wrong.

    Medusa was a beautiful woman and devout follower of Athena. One day Poseidon saw Medusa praying in Athena temple and he was so taken by her beauty that he disguised himself as a horse and raped her.
    As is typical in Greek mythology Athena punished Medusa for the rape, thereby showing that even goddess are not above the male hierarchy (and that if you were a beautiful Greek woman something bad was bound to happen to you). For her punishment Medusa was turned into a Gorgon.

    This can be found in Ovid's "Metamorphoses", I think it is in Book 4 under the story of Perseus.

    oh right, i was really confused because it said on a few websites saying she was already gorgon and then it went on to the so many different stories. Thanks

    short story
    Athena turned her into a monster. This is because Medusa had sexual relations with Poseidon in Athena's temple. Athena wasn't against having sex, but Medusa chose the wrong place.
