Medusa was not cursed by Aphrodite. She was cursed by Athena. Medusa, in Ovid's telling of the tale, was a beautiful young woman, possibly a priestess of Athena. Poseidon was so enraptured by her beauty that he pursued her and attempted to bed her. When Medusa refused, as Athena was a virgin goddess and expected her followers to be as well, Poseidon raped her on the floor of Athena's temple. As a result of the rape, Medusa became pregnant. Being the notorious misogynists that they are, the Greeks felt being raped was a punishable offense, and as such Athena cursed Medusa and exiled her to live with the other Gorgons.
