Cantor’s Softshell Turtle is a freshwater turtle, native to Cambodia, which can grow up to 6 feet in length. It spends 95 percent of its life buried and motionless in the sand surfacing twice a day to take a breath.
i think it's important to acknowledge that when we attempt to assign modern sexualities to historical figures, nothing is going to fit perfectly. that doesnt mean it's not a thing we should do; just that we're never going to get a clear answer, queer sexualities existed in revolutionary america, but the categories and situations are way different. also, it's something we do /for ourselves/. we care about whether ppl were whatever sexuality bc we feel personal connections. we can't actually know.
