fun fact: bisexuals are actually very greedy, contrary to what they say. they horde gold and jewels and other treasures in large caves which they protect their entire lives. they have protective scales to fend off invaders and the power to breathe fire. bisexuals are dragons.
There are people telling funny history stories and I wanted to tell my favorite!
Okay, so. When Napoleon invaded Egypt, the Egyptians wanted to get in his good favor, so they sent along two teenage girls to him for him to use as he pleased. Napoleon was disgusted, because um, no, and he was madly in love with Josephine. So he sent them back. And, well, the Egyptian ministers must have misunderstood.
Because they sent back two ten year old boys.
You know, this story really bothers me.
Not just because it’s obviously fake, which…it’s obviously fake. Like, it doesn’t even sound like a thing that would happen. What really bothers me is that it’s so transparently racist? Like, let’s ignore that Egypt was a devoutly Muslim country. Or that currying favor with their white invader was the last thing on the Egyptians’ minds (they HATED Napoleon). They’re EXOTIC BROWN PEOPLE, right? And EXOTIC BROWN PEOPLE have all kinds of titillating sexual norms! I’m sure it’s TOTALLY NORMAL for those EXOTIC BROWN PEOPLE to send foreign dignitaries beautiful children to use as sex slaves! Sure, to US the idea of selling our own children into sexual slavery to a foreign oppressor is degrading, revolting, and immoral, but they’re BROWN! I bet they do this all the time!
Like…really? You buy this? Are you serious right now?
