Feminists Hate Hercules

0

Feminists have always hated Hercules: The Legendary Journeys because it’s centered around two strong male protagonists and promotes the idea that a woman can be ANYTHING — including the things feminists don’t want her to be.

There were women warriors, blacksmiths, scholars, huntresses and pirates — right alongside housewives, mothers, priestesses, midwives and bar wenches.

A woman could be a hero or a villain, friend or foe, an aggressor or (*shock*) innocent victim.

Hercules and Iolaus were out to make the world a better place for everyone.  They believed in justice tempered with mercy — not awarding special favors according to race and gender or denying opportunities to those who’ve earned them.

Imagine your little girl growing up to believe that she is who she chooses to be, not what anyone makes her.

You want to talk about internalized misogyny?  Feminism at its core.

REAL Herc fans taped these three eps BEFORE the VHS trilogy was released. 📼

REAL fans also recognize the value of having EVERY episode of EVERY show Rob Tapert has EVER produced on DVD. 💿

Which is how REAL fans come to possess three copies of each of these three episodes.

And bitch, don’t even talk to me about the Cloud, because you don’t own SHIT.

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys really is the best medicine.

Recent sub-clinical studies of the show’s holistic healing properties indicate the presence of strong, anti-pathogenic xen waves that work by realigning the body’s chakrams and can even REVERSE the effects of this alleged “norovirus” in a matter of days! It has now been over 24 hours since •••• last tried to take a bite out of me. There is hope for mankind yet!!

Watching the Hercules TLJ season one episode ‘Gladiator’ is vastly more amusing in a post-Spartacus era than when it originally aired two decades ago, what with Tony Todd as a Crixus-Oenameus hybrid and Alison Bruce as proto-Lucretia. And I keep cracking up at the sight of Jeffery Thomas (Titus Lentulus Batiatus) in the role of the thuggish prison guard.

The master himself (Rob Tapert) even makes a cameo among the spectators, which I don’t recall him ever doing for Spartacus — though Michael Hurst did put in a quick appearance at the end of season 2 as javelin fodder.

“Mommy, your eyes are scaring me.”

He’d asked me about The Iliad, so I gave him a thirty-minute crash course in the Trojan War, complete with maps and pictures of Hercules: TLJ characters.  It’s probably been a good fifteen years since last I read it, and I’m stunned by the level of detail I could still recall.  I can only imagine what my eyes must have looked like.

(Anyone who knew me in my early teens will surely understand.)
