U.S. History 101
This song can be found both in a tear in the Plaza of Zeal (that’s the original) and this one is sung by a Vox Populi woman in Shantytown.
AYEEEEE MY BRUTHA LET EM KNOW
thanks to this shit storm im composing a letter to ubisoft instead of doing my homework so i can pass english
I’m going to get hate for this but I need to speak my mind. I have personally done work on game programming and it is easier to animate a male character as opposed to a female character. Why? Because the body structure is different! Females look different from males. They move different, they act different. Besides, even if it was easier to animate females it still wouldn’t fit with the theme. The setting is during the French Revolution! One of the bloodiest time periods in history and women had almost no rights during this time period. I’m not trying to be sexist, I support gender equality, however if you want to get pissed at a great game company because the main character doesn’t have a pair of tits be my guest. I will be happily playing AC: Unity once I get a PS4.
you really wanna do this buddy??? you really want to???????
wouldn’t fit with the theme? do you even know a fucking thing about the french revolution? actually do you know anything about assassin’s creed because the whole fuckin point is fighting for freedom and i fail to see how playing as a woman would disprove that point. also do you know women’s history at all? women have always been on the forefronts of revolutions and social upheavals. ALWAYS. A L W A Y S. our history and our support and our SUCCESS has been erased time and time again but it’s still fucking there. time to read it, hun.
people are pissed because ubisoft has animated females. they have an entire game featuring a woman and every co-op so far has had multiple female characters. they know how to fucking do it. women aren’t some kind of magical unicorn creature with fifty legs.
charlotte corday was executed by guillotine in 1793 for the assassination (WOMAN ASSASSIN RIGHT HERE) of jean paul marat. marat was a radical politician and journalist who was one of the most radical voices of the revolution. she stabbed him to death, in his bath tub. she posthumously name the angel of assassination. she testified that she carried out the assassination alone and that killing that one man would save the lives of 100,000 others.
claire lacombe, or red rosa, was a founding member of the society of revolutionary republican women along with pauline leon. the group became so notorious, within just five months, that the national convention specifically banned WOMENS organisations. it was attended by up to 180 women. claire lacombe FOUGHT with the rebels in 1792 at the storming of tuileries where she was SHOT THROUGH THE ARM but carried on fighting anyway which earnt her the name “heroine of august tenth” and for her bravery she was awarded a civic crown. she was arrested in april 1794 and released august 1795.
olympe de gouges was a playwright feminist abolitionist and advocate for the improvement of conditions for slaves in the colonies. she wrote the declaration of the rights of women and the female citizen demanding woman have EQUAL rights to men, she challenged male-female inequality and and the male authority. she was excecuted by guillotine.
pauline leon suggested the a female militia so women could protect their homes from counter revolutionary assaults. she requested that women were given permission to arm themselves with sabers, rifles, pikes and pistols as well as the privilege of drilling under the french guard. the request was denied. she co founded the society of revolutionary republican women with claire lacombe and when it was shut down moved onto be the leader of femmes sans culottes.
theroigne de mericourt in 1789 was caricatured by the parisian royalist press as the female war chief and according to their pamphlets she assaulted the bastille and lead the womens march on versailles, fought soldiers, was to be found where unrest was greatest. by her own accounts she did none of these but did attend debates at the national assembly and in 1792 made a call for the creation of “legions of amazons” in order to protect the revolution. As part of her call, she claimed that the right to bear arms would transform women into citizens. she was arrested, publicly flogged and spent the rest of her life in an asylum.
there’s also the women’s march on versailles which was one of the earliest AND most significant events in the revolution and began because women were rioting over the high price of bread.
militant women carried the bathtub and blood stained shirt of the assassinated marat as part of his funeral procession.
at the constitution of 1793 women were at the fore of the crown demanding bread and when their cries went unnoticed, the women went on a rampage, “sacking shops, seizing grain and kidnapping officials.”
women had next to no rights PRE revolution but the rise of feminists during the revolution changed things. WOMEN WERE IMPORTANT. WOMEN FOUGHT AND WERE POLITICAL AND PHYSICAL AND WOMEN DID CONTRIBUTE TO THE REVOLUTION ON BOTH SIDE and i didn’t even write about everything. women played a very important role so stop pretending they didn’t. you can read more here and hell even wikipedia is good on this too.
Happy #Juneteenth !!!!
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that theenslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’sEmancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influenceand overcome the resistance.
