#rsrh Me arguing with Colonial Williamsburg plaques, Part 1.

Because, really, just because I didn’t update my blog, didn’t keep up with the news, and limited my email to once a day meant that I stopped being a political blowhard/pedantic pain in the butt (otherwise known as a ‘blogger’):

CW Walk Back In Time Sidewalk Plaque: 1920: From This Date You Accept That Women Cannot Vote.

Me: Bullsh*t.  By 1920 over twenty-nine states had suffrage on at least the Presidential level; Wyoming had given full suffrage for over fifty years at that point. Which may have been why the 19th Amendment passed, don’t you think? – And, not to be a d*ck about this or anything, but I can’t help but notice that the states that weren’t offering women the vote were mostly notorious Democratic party strongholds.  There was a reason why Susan B. Anthony was a Republican, you know.

Yes, I am an absolute joy to go to museums/historical monuments with.

    It’s the language that damns them. “You accept…” as if those people back then were bad people.

    I’ve been to pre-Columbian sites and museums all over the eastern US, and I’ve seen ONE that has up-to-date information on how humanity came to the Americas. Most of them still push the Clovis-first, literally Congressional approved line.

    Though the worst experiences come from other visitors…

    Mhm. Slavery and suffrage and right-to-life are following similar patterns. There won’t be big moves, at the federal level, until there’s sufficient agreement at the local and State level… it’s a feature, not a bug.

    Could be worse: could be me, dealing with streetcorner petitioners.
    Sometimes they leave skidmarks…
