while were on the subject can we please talk about the thing with the minotaur in The Realm of the Gods
Daine cries over killing the minotaur who was going to rape her. She says it “wasn’t his fault.” That it was his “nature” and he “couldn’t help it.” Which is the exact same language a lot of people use to describe actual rapists in the actual real world we live in.
That passage, even more than the Numair/Daine age gap, is why I can’t forgive the Immortals series.
But you see Minotaurs aren’t capable of communication, or human intelligence. I’m not saying defending them is the right thing to do, but comparing a Minotaur from that series to a human man from our universe makes no sense.
