Is the mythology of Medusa genuine Goddess worship, or really ancient man's anger and rage against the female species?

I mean why would a Goddess be portrayed as a Gorgon, to look and act evil, and to turn Men into stone? ... doesn't that sound like it was made up by a Greek man, or a group of them, that were early women haters and were trying to portray us as evil witches or something?

Please admit guys, that back in that day the majority of women in that part of the world were slaves, or had subservient status to men, and the ones who tried to rise above it, for the most part, were hated.

So, in summary, I have surmised that this fable was a fixation of some Greek men to try and portray women as evil. So what am I missing?

Surely even reasonable level headed guys could agree with this... can't they?

Lady's don't leave me all alone on a deserted island please... lol... what's your take... do you think I'm close?

A. YES! That makes total sense to me! I can't think of any other reason that such an evil female could have been conjured up in the thinking processes other than that

C. Just as there are good witches and bad witches, the same is true with Goddesses, so Medusa is just the evil version, not anything some men conjured up
