Yeah, so speaking of gods who liked to change gender, we're going to actually go over to europe and we're going to talk about someone that most of you have probably heard of. We're gonna talk about Loki. Yes, this low key that Loki. Um, so many of you are probably familiar with Loki from the marvel, cinematic universe played by Tom Hiddleston. He's a pretty popular character with ladies and dudes and envious of all kinds. A lot of people find lucky to be very attractive. He's not my cup of tea, but I understand that this is something that many people find appealing. Um, so, um, he's a sex symbol. He's a shapeshifter. He's a troublemaker and a bit of a rebel and not just in the comics and the marvel cinematic universe, either in the norse myths. He's both a helper and a hindrance to the gods at various points. But most of the time he's just a person mischief because that's what Loki does. He's a chaos Danny. He just, you know I mean why not just want to have fun? Um And one of the ways that he has fun is by shape shifting. So in the M. C. U. We mostly see Loki changed his human form from one person to another. He was Odin in for Ragnarok for example. But what you may not know is that in the original Norse myths uh Loki could not only changes shape to become various humans, he could also change into various animals and even change his gender. Um He spent some time as a salmon and a bird and a fly and also a mayor. That's right. He was a female horse and as part of attempting to get a builder to stop working. It's a really really really long story but he was just up causing mischief and he's trying to get this this human builder to stop working. He turns into a mirror and leads away the builder stallion. And the cyan is named uh paddle far E. And saddle Ferrari really liked mary Loki and uh according to the prose Edda quote, Loki had run such a race with saddle fairy that sometime after bora foal, it was gray and had eight ft and this was the best horse among gods and men. Something is wrong with that horse. So uh this is the horse that Loki, the child that Loki bore, the horse child, this is sleep near and he's a horse with eight legs and he becomes Odin's mount and is associated with like chamonix ecstasy and seeing visions and all that kind of stuff because mythologies super weird sometimes like Loki turns into a female horse and gives birth to an eight legged horse and you're like okay sure. Which is written then, written by its grandfather. Right. Yes, mythology mythology is weird. Um so uh Loki was also known to have spent some time in the form of an elderly woman. This is a depiction of the elderly woman named fuck. And so in another, you know, low key, just being Loki doing his low key thing. He, so one of Odin sons named balder was slain in battle and in order to like move on to valhalla, balder had to be mourned by everyone in the world. So low key because Loki is Loki decided that he would take the form of folk this giant test and not weep for balder, thus forcing balder to stay in the Norse underworld because Loki was kind of a shit um slow key. So that was what Loki did. He decided to turn into a giant woman and not cry. Um I just want to sing Stephen. You know? Now I did too. All he wanted to do was turn into a giant woman. Um So it is also tested that Loki at one point lived in the underworld as a woman for eight long winters milking cows and giving birth to Children. He really likes to give birth. He really did. Like that's like his main hobby. Yeah. Is turning into women and giving birth forward of trickery. Let's just have some good, let's have some babies. Just have some babies because that's what I do. It doesn't matter the species or the size or the number of legs. But what I do when I'm bored, that's what I do when I'm bored, I have some babies and then I am less bored. Are we supposed to be fighting against? Only not only I don't actually do that at all in any way. Um At one point Loki also ate a woman's heart and again gave birth but gave birth to all of the female ogres in the world. Thanks. So again according to the pros eta Loki ate some heart. The thought stone of a woman roasted on a linden wood fire. He found it half cooked. Loki was impregnated by a wicked woman from whom every progress on earth is descended. So yeah he just really liked having babies. And we even in the modern the modern M. C. You actually has given us a version of Lady Loki. So this is this is Loki in his you know male form here and this is the female form and this is another image of of Loki and his female form. So Loki has disguised himself in the body of thor's lover Lady Sif. And we even have Loki at one point disguised as the scarlet. Which which is pretty cool that we have you know gender bendy Loki in the in the modern EMC you comics. But so far they just seem to be disguises. And I am totally up for like economically gender queer Loki in the M. C. U. I think that would be awesome. Maybe Tom Hiddleston needs a break and we need to get like a gender queer actor to come in and play low key and we can have some economically gender queer Loki don't say that. It makes me disappointed that it's not going to happen. I mean I'm already disappointed that it's not happening. But I mean I live with disappointment all the time. So fanfictions for. Yeah that's that's what fanfictions were. So yeah that is that is our journey through mythology and there's so many other stories. I mean I was just I was just reading the Wonder Woman comic the other day and it was talking about Aphrodite's child atalante aides who is also like economically, both male and female at once. They're pretty awesome. I mean we didn't even get into like a lot of meso american representation. Gosh, there's there's a lot, yeah.
