** To be fair, homosexual relationships in Ancient Greece was only acceptable if it was pederasty - meaning there should be a huge age difference between two partners. So as if having like 13 years old boys with a grown men isn't going to {{Squick}} modern audiences enough.

* Many modern variants say that Aphrodite was born from seafoam. They omit the fact that the foam was actually from the sperm and blood spilled when Cronus castrated his father. And that's not to mention ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', where Hercules calls her "sister". Though some myths say that Aphrodite is the daughter of Zeus and Dione, making them half-siblings.

** In the Literature/BookOfEsther, lots of people hear the search for [[ReplacementGoldfish a queen to replace the divorced-and-deposed Vashti]] described as a BeautyContest, with the runners-up remaining in the RoyalHarem. While physical beauty ''was'' part of it, it was more about who could please the king the most...''in bed''. In other words, it was more of a CastingCouch than a BeautyContest. Also, the girls selected for this purpose had [[SexualHarassmentAndRapeTropes little or no say]] in whether or not they actually joined the RoyalHarem.

* The Hades and Persephone myth is commonly known as "the Rape of Persephone". This title and the rape implied are often left out of retellings. Nor do they remind the reader that Persephone is his niece. While the story is called the "Rape of Persephone", by ancient Greece custom, abducting the bride from her home was part of the marriage ceremony, thus Hades legally married her. And marrying a niece kept family property in the family. On the plus side, they had the healthiest marriage of all the Gods that would require little additional censorship. However, it is also possible that this came from a different meaning of the word "rape". The Latin word raptio, often translated as rape, simply meant abduction of women. See [[here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rape_of_the_Sabine_Women]].
