Castor & Pollux - The Gemini
Castor and Pollux (aka Polydeuces) were twin brothers in Greek mythology whose story is connected to the Gemini constellation.
Zeus impregnated their mother, Leda, when he was in the form of a swan. In the same day, Leda slept with her husband, Tyndareus, the King of Sparta and several months later, Leda laid two eggs. From the eggs hatched two sets of twins: Helen & Clytemnestra and Castor & Pollux. Castor and Clytemnestra were the mortal children of Tyndareus while Pollux and Helen were the immortal children of Zeus.
The twin brothers, also known as the Dioscuri, had many adventures together including rescuing their sister Helen from her first abductor and joining Jason’s voyage of the Argo.
When Castor died, Pollux opted to share his immortality with his brother and they were both raised to the stars. Together they make up the Gemini constellation.

I’ve been waiting to see Calypso on my dash.
boys can like pink and not be gay
girls can have short hair and not be a lesbian
boys can like ballet
girls can like video games
boys can be hot without a six pack
girls can be hot without a hairless body
boys can have hair down to their waists
girls can have stretch marks, curves and back fat
gender doesn’t determine what you can and cannot enjoy, what you can and cannot look like or what you can and cannot do
I love this so much.
