FYI everyone, IDK how it started but bloody Sirens are NOT mermaids. They are creatures with woman heads and bird bodies who sing to lure sailors to crash on rocks before swooping dow  to eat them.


Thank you for your time.

Unfortunately, this was not a recent mix-up because the French word for "mermaid" is "sirène". The word is used for both the half-woman, half-fish people AND the half-bird Greek mythology sirens.

the confusion happened because there are also stories about mermaids that sing to lure sailors to their doom. people didn't realize the Sirens from Greek myth were bird-people and started to use the name for the singing mermaids and then it all went wrong.

Thank you! It always annoys me when I see pimple showing off mers as sirens, like, why don't you compare the Minotaur and centaurs?
