This Thursday, my country will celebrate how white males loaded up their “property” (women and children) onto boats from England, eventually arriving on the continent to a generous and open welcome from the indigenous people.
The indigenous people taught them to farm and brought them gifts. As a Christian, white male show of gratitude, religiousy, freedomy, English dudebros proceeded to wage war on them, steal their land, murdering scores of them in the process.
And white males called the native people SAVAGES. #MANLOGICKS.
After all of the murdering and stealing, all the white males dragged their “property” (women and children) to church, and praised their murderous, male god for all of their blessings.
The country celebrates and commemorates all of that male violence and thievery with a huge, expensive dinner that males get to enjoy by sitting on their fat asses watching TV and drooling on themselves while their domestic slaves (wife and/or daughters) shop for, budget for, prepare, cook, serve, and clean up after.
My liberationist dream is that one day, women will say NO. And all of the women can bring their daughters and their moms and sisters to my house, where we will drink coffee and eat pie. And maybe have a nap.
Happy Fucking Thanksgiving. The most male of all of the holidays.
P.S. And Christopher Columbus, who is credited with finding the continent, even though there were already people here, was a typical example of male virtue. He committed genocide on the Arawak people, he wiped them completely out of existence. And he liked to rape women and girls, with a preference for 9 and 10 year olds.
