Athena hates Medusa because Poseidon took her to Athena's worship place. Athena did not like that so Athena cursed Medusa so that no man could ever look at her again. Medusa was infuriated so she took Poseidon into the worship place and did some... stuff. Athena pledged never to do that so, Athena was pretty pissed off.
