Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”
Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

Thomas: Your ladyship, may I have the honor of this dance?
Violet: Yes, it is a waltz. I’m far too old for that awful Foxtrot.
Thomas: What about the Black Bottom, m’lady?
The Black Bottom was a racy flapper dance that mimicked spanking. The dance became popular after it appeared in the 1924 Irving Berlin musical Dinah and in the 1926 show Scandals of 1926. The dance even inspired songs like Jelly Roll Morton’s “Black Bottom Stomp”
I love Thomas saying “bottom” …. *whistles*

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.

I just gave a goblin an accidental handjob in D&D I’m so
For anyone curious, I tried to rip his dick off and then botched my roll. Now our caravan won’t stop calling me the “Hand of Mercy”
