In an earlier thread, I wrote briefly about trans people in medieval Europe, and discussed some of the main issues when studying the medieval history of trans people.
Today, if you'll indulge me, I want to spend some time discussing a single person in detail. I want to talk about the way she's been written about, and about her and what she can teach us about life as a trans person 600 years ago.
This is the story of Eleanor Rykener.
i'm the only curious cat their is. everybody else delete you're account
THE RESULTS ARE IN!!!!
THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!!!
To celebrate my "one thousand" followers, I shall write an essay on the topic of @email@example.com 's birthday, from what I expect will be a leftist perspective. Many thanks to all of you who voted, regardless of what team you were on! I'm going to set Sunday 14th of October as a tentative due date, but if this will prove anything like my other research project, it's likely to spiral out of control. I love you all!! thanks!!

I hate the Avital Ronell scandal so much. every time I'm reminded of it it makes me feel sick
In conclusion, Dans la Peau is still a fine ass record and if you like quiet, groovy french pop i strongly recommend it! This new album is an interesting shift in a much bolder, more political direction. The ideas are there, the execution comes and goes. I hope Camélia can bring this potential to fruition with her next project.
