I have no problem with the selling of less than perfect looking fruits and vegetables as long as they are still edible. But the best you could come up with for a character name is CLINT CUCUMBER?? Let me guess? He's sassy, like most talking cucumbers are likely to be? Gah!
While homosexuality was a “hot topic” during the Middle Ages, attention was usually focused on men. There is very little mention of female homosexuality. One of the few medieval laws that specifically targets lesbianism comes from the mid-13th-century French treatise Li Livres de jostice et de plet (The Book of Justice and of Pleas). Female sodomy receives a similar punishment to its male counterpart: mutilation for the first two offenses and burning for the third.
Lesbianism was regarded as a medical problem brought on by one of two disorders: The first came from the ancient Greek physician Galen, who advised that lack of sex would cause a seed buildup in women’s wombs. The treatment involved an orgasm, generally brought on by a midwife with a hot poultice. The other condition was called “ragadia of the womb.” It was believed that women could develop penis-like protuberances outside their vaginas, which would make them want to have sex with other women.
I made the mistake of looking up Medieval Lesbians and learned about Medieval Lesbian Peeing. That is an actual thing. Some links should never be clicked. I just wanted a nice picture of two pretty girls dressed in Medieval clothing that I could imply were in a lesbian relationship as they went from castle to castle. Then finding nothing appropriate for someone not into Medieval Urine Fun, I just went with Betty and Veronica.. Why did I even start this post? Never do I let these go and tell myself NO. Am I like the Idiot Trump in that way?
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
