  • When she was young she used to be a tiger that carried the plague. One day she gave a bowel of magic peaches to the Emporer. She then got married to Yang. She grows peaches on a tree that takes over 3000 years to blossom and to ripen. The peaches give immortality to all who eat them. All the gods used to get together and eat peaches for a day but then one time the Monkey King ate all of the peaches. Hsi Wang-Mu lives in a nine story palace made of jade that is surrounded by a wall of gold. In her garden she grows a peach tree. Whoever eats the peaches becomes immortal. The peaches take over 3000 years to blossom and to ripen. Whenever the peaches are ripe all of the gods get together and have a peach banquet. At the last banquet the Monkey King ate all of the peaches.
  • I think she is a powerful goddess. Hsi went from a spirit to top goddess. A spirit is one of the lowest beings on the power totem pole.
  • If a bunch of guys were telling offending sexist jokes she would probably threaten them with the plague but not really do it.
