Every time Trump says that “nobody” has more respect for women than he does I can’t help but agree with him. He is right. The Greek hero, Odysseus, also known as Nobody to the cyclopes Polyphemus, who traveled through dangerous waters and struggled for ten years to return to his wife does indeed have more respect for woman than Trump does.



Homer se adelantó.

Since you mentioned Song of Achilles, I think Stucky is MarvelAU of this story. It's totally like "no Achilles and Patroclus" weren't gays" due to school/people but we know what is true.

I actually made a post about this, but specifically about the mythology of Achilles and Patroclus, not what is in tsoa.
But honestly tsoa, you could literally read it as Steve and Bucky instead of Patroclus and Achilles and it would still make perfect sense.
Pat and Achilles are a funny one bc like Homer talks about them and says things like when Achilles found out of Patroclus’ death, his screams of sorrow were so loud they were heard even by the gods of the sea. And that he refused to let the body be burnt and buried, which like at the time was a big deal bc they believed if you didn’t bury someone then their soul would be stuck in limbo. Instead he kept Pat’s body in his tent and held him and wept, he wouldn’t eat and he didn’t speak except to swear death upon Hector for killing him. And the strength of his reaction to his death was so much so that it frightened the other soldiers. He also literally has Agamemnon say what translates to “I shall leave when Achilles’ bitch tells me goodbye” and Achilles without missing a beat goes “this is of you, Patroclus”,,,, HE LITERALLY GOES “lmao, he’s talking about you”. Anyway so Homer says all of that and more but maintains that they were just “very close friends”
Plato however, Plato is the real MVP. Plato was like “nah they gay. they were definitely lovers.”
