agnosis

According to The Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, there were only three hearts that Aphrodite could never bend or ensnare: Hestia, Athena and Artemis. I thought it would be more logical if all asexual people were immune to her power. That would mean, though, that Artemis is not one of those who can escape Aphrodite in my telling, since my Artemis has sex with women (unless Aphrodite for some reason is the goddess of sexual love between men and women only, but that wouldn’t make sense in my world). Of these three goddesses Hestia is the only one who is both asexual and aromantic in my version. Athena is pretty much asexual, but not aromantic.
