a reminder for no particular reason that suffregerts were far more radical then we are told at school
@firecoals Oh I used to teach this bit when I was a History teacher, along with the force feedings and everything. The Suffragettes were badass (I live in the town where Emily Wilding Davison is from/buried)
@dajbelshaw my memory was "chained to fences. thew to.horses. cst and mouse act and forced feeding (but I don't remember talking aboit what it entailed) and then got the vote cos the war
@firecoals they don't teach it at school because someone is very afraid of what may happen if they did
@firecoals because sometimes being nice is not enough to change anything. And I think it is very important thing to remember :)
@firecoals burning “votes for women” into the grass of a golf course is totally badass. I approve.
@firecoals the teens were a buckwild time in anglosphere history.
I mean, really just everywhere, but I mostly know about the stuff from the english speaking parts of the world.
The anarchists were emboldened.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
