1. The Horseshoe Thread 🐎
For over a year we’ve seen comms from both sides w/ a Horseshoe. Time to compile all of those tweets.
Some I’ll just be dropping the link, others I’ll explain or explore deeper.
I do not know the whole story why a horseshoe. But I know it’s significant.

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

Shamash was the Akkadian name for the #Mesopotamian god of the sun, known to the Sumerians as Utu. His main symbol was the solar disc, a circle with four points in each of the cardinal directions and four wavy, diagonal lines emanating from the circle between each point.
According to "Gods, Demons, and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia" by Jeremy Black and Anthony Green, the Akkadian name for this #symbol was shamshatu. It was often represented on a pole as a standard. The symbol is currently a popular icon among people native to #Mesopotamia.
Chaldean Christians posing with their ethnic flag, a colored shamshatu flanked by 2 parallel blue bands. Though #Chaldean Catholics are mostly regarded ethnically and historically as a part of the #Assyrian continuity, some claim a Chaldean ethnic identity as a nation of its own.
