I have come to despise history. Even unto its very name. HIS-Story. Why in this day and age is it not OUR STORY?
But I hate it with every mode of my being in lectures where they list Plato, Aristotle, Romulus, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Paul Revere, men upon men upon men.
I want the NOW-Story with Angela Merkel, Elizabeth Warren, Theresa May, Not the THEN-Story. I want to wipe free of founding fathers, and anything and everything written by man. Destroyed as they did our freedom, our voice, our choices. Have it washed away after a great burning.
Someday I might come to terms with all the men’s faces as my countries leaders but I doubt it. A woman’s face needs to be against that oppressive backdrop.
