#livetweet thread of Women who Out Steampunked Steampunk, opening with a note about how diverse the Victorian era is and that women of colour very much existed
Straw poll on interest of the room of soldiers and inventors. Talking about how women were soldiers, that there were lots of reasons to go to war, that lgbtq erasure is real and that some women returned and went on lecture circuit;
others lived in male garb for rest of life after war and that many of them are likely what we would understand as trans.
Also all the nurses and wives going to war. Quick anecdote of soldier's wife grumpy about laundry ruined by canon ball.
3) Plutôt que de gloser sur les exitpolls, rappelons les"intangibles" de l'élection comme on dit aux #EtatsUnis. L'#Alabama n'a pas élu 1 sénateur démocrate depuis 1992(en fait depuis 1990, car en 1992 c'était Shelby l'autre sénateur actuel, passé républicain en 1994 qui fut élu)
