Happy Women's Day
In Purism, we care about rights. Digital rights concern everybody, touch most people’s lives, and carry a heavy societal weight when it comes to women : https://puri.sm/posts/womens-day-2019/

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.

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?
so far i've got
- 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.
