Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and shag a nun.
bisexual opera singer who killed ten men and snuck into a convent to shag a nun.
Just so y’all know, she later set that convent on fire so she and that nun could sneak out. And she seduced one of the men she’d dueled.
Also, dueling was a serious crime during her life, but the king of France essentially overturned her conviction on the grounds that the relevant law specifically referred to men.how has there never been a million stories about this badass
It’s always a good day when my wife is back on my dash.

Protestors chanted in the EMU Amphitheater against Lierre Keith’s presence at the PIELC Conference on campus. (Hannah Golden/Emerald)
It was less an anticlimax than a warm reminder of the difference between safer spaces and trans exclusion.
With police stationed throughout the EMU Ballroom, Lierre Keith took the stage. The atmosphere was tense; attendees were required…

Anarchy. Postcard produced by the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair collective promoting not the event but the idea. ‘But anarchy is against human nature’ declare those of small and mealy mind. So what then is human nature more akin to? Capitalism? Socialism? Fascism? No. Human nature is a creative nature; anti-authoritative and steeped in mutual aid. ‘But anarchy is unrealistic’ those same-minded people reply as they knuckle down to their prescribed lives. So what then in this world has not at some point been unrealistic? “We choose to go to the moon”, said John F Kennedy and whilst millions scoffed and refused to believe it possible, to the moon America went. Well, we choose anarchy. And anarchy we shall have.
I really like that the promotional material for the bookfair was just promotional material for anarchism. Also I like that we can have anarchy on the moon.
This is so painfully accurate.
Hey, my friends are doing this thing. It’s a good thing. Maybe you should do it, too.
