History is written by the Winners

This is the history of fuck you for

making me soft, for making me maleable,

for doing more than just testing my waters,

fuck you for making the oceans of me

feel so puddle at the sight of you.

This is the history of my mattress,

that has seen more mistakes

than I am sober enough to remember.

This is another man’s neck

and your name whispered against it.

This is not forgetting. This is trying to.

This is not enough ways to give up

as I thought there would be, only the one

with your caller ID and a hangover.

This is the history of love.

This is a rare thing, a history

written by one who did not win.

Remember Sisters, we ARE descendants of Queens.

So HOLD YOUR HEAD UP!!!

History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, ‘What is history, but a fable agreed upon?

‘Suffragette,’ Starring Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep, to be Released by Focus Features

Director Sarah Gavron’s “Suffragette” will be distributed in North America by Focus Features this fall.

“The British film focuses on the early-twentieth-century battle to win the vote for UK women. Written by Emmy winner Abi Morgan, “Suffragette” stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep, and Anne-Marie Duff. Mulligan will play Maud, a working wife and mother who decides to join a feminist group galvanized into taking greater and greater risks in the face of aggressive police reaction to the fight for women’s rights.

Peter Schlessel, CEO of Focus Features, said, “'Suffragette’ is a story that will resonate with men and women across the generations; it is about parents and children, courage and dedication, and making hard choices.”

Hmm, Meryl Streep in a movie about feminists? I’m not sure how I feel about that. Oh wait, yes I do!!

History is written by the winners

If Germany had won World War 2, no one would be accusing them of a Holocaust, except a minority of ‘crazy neo-communist Holocaust fantasists’.

If Germany had won, the Allies would have been the evil ones.

But since Germany lost, there was a Holocaust, and no one denies it, except a minority of ‘crazy neo-nazi Holocaust deniers’.

But since Germany lost, the Germans were the evil ones.

KEMARI - COLLECTION

by various unknown artists

“Kemari is a ball game that is said to have come from China to Japan during the Yamato period approximately 1,400 years ago. There are no winners or losers in this game, the objective of the game being simply to pass the ball to fellow players.

In Japan, depending on the era of history, Kemari was enthusiastically played within the Imperial Palace, and written records of Kemari games can be seen in ancient texts and documents dating back to the mid-Heian period.

During the Kamakura period, in addition to the Imperial court, the warrior classes also engaged in the sport of Kemari, and through the Muromachi period to the Edo period, the game’s profile gradually increased, and it was mentioned in various places such as Noh theatre performances, Kyogen theatre, and Edo period novellas.

However, after the Meiji Restoration, Kemari declined in popularity and in 1903, with a donation from Emperor Meiji, a society to preserve the ancient game was established, resulting in the survival of Kemari to this day.

The performance of Kemari is shown to the public. On the occasion of the Kyoto Imperial Palace Public Open Day.”

#ReadProud.

This June we’re celebrating the books that bring light to the reason that Pride Month exists. Read on for 8 YA books with extraordinary LGBTQ voices that crawled into our hearts and didn’t leave.

1. Stonewall: Breaking Out in the Fight for Gay Rights: An unflinching look into the history of the Gay Rights movement, starting with the Stonewall riots in 1969, which triggered an explosive demand for gay rights. 

2. Hold Me Closer: Irresistible, hilarious Tiny Cooper (from Will Grayson, Will Grayson) takes center stage in his own story, written as the most fantastic musical ever produced!

3. Grasshopper Jungle: Austin has equally deep feelings for his best friend and his girlfriend in Andrew Smith’s intense, complex Printz Honor book. 

4. I’ll Give You the Sun: You’ll fall for Jude as he vividly describes falling for the charismatic boy next door in Jandy Nelson’s Printz Award winner.

5. Vast Fields of Ordinary: Experiencing both true love with a mysterious new boy and unforeseen tragedy in one summer, Dade’s story is hopeful and heartbreaking at the same time. 

6. Everything Leads to You: Talented set designer Emi hasn’t been able to design a love life that’s more than make-believe – until a mysterious letter leads her to Ava. 

7. On the Count of Three: Nina, Avery, and Mel haven’t been apart since age 11, but when Nina comes back from a summer in California, she’s an outsider – because Avery and Mel have started dating. A bittersweet, honest look at first love and changing friendships.

8. My Most Excellent Year: When T.C. falls in love with pretty, sassy Al, it feels black and white – but for his best friend Augie, who’s drawn to a boy, it’s not so clear…even if its obvious to his family and friends. 

What would you add to this list?
