So some guy just told me that there is no misogyny in history, men were merely greater than women. He said that if women really were that great, they’d make the ‘top 10 most historical figures list’. I don’t know where he’s getting all of his bullshit, but it’s really annoying. Especially when I bring up great, brilliant, and influential women like Theodora, Joan of Arc, and Empress Wu, yet he just combats it by saying that men are greater and then has the gall to say that that isn’t misogyny. Does he not understand that by saying men are superior to women and ignoring the glorification of men over women in history he is perpetuating sexism? Some people….

His neighs ring throughout the empire, a symbol of our dwindling prosperity!

honestly, it all went downhill after Incitatus was gone!

Maybe if they had kept Incitatus and actually taken the war on Poseidon seriously the Roman empire would still be here.

^I’ve been saying this for centuries! But noooo. They had to go and say “A war on the sea god and listening to a horse for political advice is crazy.” Shows what they knew!

Exactly! You are quite the scholar&#8230; quite a bit smarter than that Marcus Aurelius everyone is so crazy about. He wasn&#8217;t even that great of an emperor. Caligula was far superior.
