Sorry about that political divergence, followers! It was funny, it may happen again, but let’s get back to other historically related things, shall we? Just reblogged a gif-set from Downton Abbey relating to the Suffragette movement, and whatever shows up on my dash that’s relevant will be reblogged etc etc.
As for messages I haven’t responded to yet:
As I said, I’m working on my thesis and am super busy. I’m not ignoring you, and I will definitely respond to the requests in my request post and my inbox as soon as this beast is handed in. I haven’t deleted them, they’re still there, no worried!
And thank you for following my little place of historically humorous veneration!
See previous response about not putting anything past Santorum and deleted tweets.
I don’t remember John Stewart ranting on it, but if it was a while ago I may have missed it.
But honestly, unless someone feels like sending me a definitive source as to whether this is fake or not, I’m probably not going to reply to any more of these. Again, not the purpose of this blog. I am not a frequent bedfellow with politics. But thank you for this possible information!
Good to know from someone who (I’m guessing) was watching the show! But I got that already. But thank you!
I mean you’re probably right, but it’s not as if he and other politicians haven’t deleted tweets before. I won’t get started on how I’m pretty sure what most politicians would do doesn’t apply to Santorum, because not only am I not well-versed in how to talk about Politics but this is also not the purpose of this blog.
I just reblogged it because it was funny in a history-related way.
Qiu Jin wore masculine attire before the Qing Dynasty and system of imperial rule fell (in other words, during a time when traditional Confucian values about women’s proper place were still dominant). She made war with the emperor and was beheaded. She’s touted as China’s first feminist…but perhaps we could even say she’s proto-genderqueer? I snagged this photo from the wonderful book Chinese Women Writers and the Feminist Imagination, 1905–1948 by Yan Haiping. So good.
