“My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.”

“In 1784, five years before he became president of the United States, George Washington, 52, was nearly toothless. So he hired a dentist to transplant nine teeth into his jaw—having extracted them from the mouths of his slaves.”
see, THIS is history. and you won’t find it in any secondary school history textbook in the U.S., i guarantee.
Damn. I was frozen after reading this… what the hell is the wooden teeth shit they always talk about. Growing up in the US education system feels like everything you learn was/is a lie until you learn it yourself. outside of school.
This is disgusting. More so for the fact that it’s inhumane, but why would you want someone else’s teeth in your mouth? That’s too much gross.
