Good news, I've reached out to the WikiBros and they've agreed to stop misgendering her and acknowledge her as trans if she'd just publicly come out and confirm it on social media or preferably a major news outlet.

Does anyone know if she has a Twatter account? Did the Romans keep a discord server going after the fall of their empire?

@DissidentKitty she literally put a gigantic prize out for anyone who could give her grs

she's an icon

@DissidentKitty yes that's horrible!

but wait a minute holy shit who was this amazing person!? XD

from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elagabal

"Later historians suggest Elagabalus showed a disregard for Roman religious traditions and sexual taboos. He [sic] replaced the traditional head of the Roman pantheon, Jupiter, with the deity Elagabalus, of whom he [sic] had been high priest." ...

read the rest of that paragraph!

This is irrefutable proof that at some point, generation Z's invent time travel!

XD

@DissidentKitty it's like Roman people were better than us or something.

@Passiflora_Caerulea @Lambdanaut @DissidentKitty considering Elagabalus was murdered for being trans by an increasingly authoritarian religious conservative nobility....

aye naw aye aye naw, the Romans were pretty shite too.

@Passiflora_Caerulea @Lambdanaut @DissidentKitty part of the reason it's so difficult to find sources on her is because her successor went full Stalin and removed all mention of her from official records.

@DissidentKitty let's go exhume her and ressurect her so she can do that then

@DissidentKitty

The fact that I can't be sure that's a joke and not actually true is telling

@zigg No. I saw it in a discord server so I don't know the source.

@DissidentKitty It’s so good. My first queer history book started off with Elegabalus—I loved this. Thanks for sharing it!

@DissidentKitty she was also like... a teenager... and obviously times and values change a little bit but I can’t help but feel grossed out by treating her sex life/sexualization as goals

@powersource It's hard to type anywhere, tbh. I just type it once and keep copying it.

@DissidentKitty purely boosting to piss off traditionalist transphobes

@DissidentKitty That is important and interesting, but I'm sure there are a lot better historical trans role models than incompetent politicians

@DissidentKitty but is very cool, but also almost literally intersectional imperialism

@DissidentKitty i knew the Heliogabalus way to write it wich is pretty sunny :D
