"When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?"
hot tip: bisexuals, pansexuals, and other people attracted to more than one gender are still queer
even if they are in a relationship a cis person of a different gender
because, hey, it’s still a gender among the many that they can be attracted to
they are not “betraying the cause” or whatever shit just because they are in a relationship that happens to make them appear straight
because they ain’t straight
