I had a fight with my mom over a female teacher who was sued for going to boys’ showers to “check their hygiene” and my mom was saying it was okay, because the teacher is a mother and I was like??????????
If it was the other way around everybody would lose their shit and no one would give two fucks if the guy was a father or not, but because she’s a woman and a mother it’s okay???
February 22, 1917 - Sergeant Benito Mussolini Wounded in Accidental Explosion

A minor event by any standard, the accidental explosion of a mortar bomb wounded a young Italian soldier in his trench on February 22 on the Isonzo sector of the front. Four men were killed, but Sergeant Mussolini survived and was brought to hospital, where he stayed for six months, during which time forty-four shell fragments were removed from his body. Once a socialist, Mussolini war service had driven him politically rightwards toward being an ardent nationalist. He welcomed the King, whose monarchy he had once opposed, who visited the patriotic editor in the hospital. When he was discharged, he returned to journalism, beginning his five year road to Fascism and rule. It was too bad the bomb had missed.
