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.

@jackolas What is up, fellow friend?
anyone got any suggestions for good early-80s movies where they just kinda run out of plot and then there's a police chase, a multi-car pile-up, people shooting at stuff and then the hero is eventually cornered and taken down?

- blues brothers (1980)
- american werewolf in london (1981)
The people actively demand renewable energy, despite the astroturf propaganda claiming it's costly, primitive and/or infeasible.
the people who call ubuntu "noobunto" and shit on people for using it are hilarious. it's great to discourage people when they're just beginning to learn how to use linux, or to attack people who've been using ubuntu for years for no other reason than "it's popular". such a great idea haha it's so funny
