Here it is how I got Horrible Histories banned from my school Sit down I'm going to tell you a story Imagine a little girl a 4'9 fifth grader with dimples and twinkling blue eyes Oh look she's going to the school library Perhaps she's going to rent Little Women or read On the Banks of m Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder! Five minutes later she exits the library holding a large stack of books called Horrible Histories And she's thumbing through one called Angry Aztecs Record scratch Freeze frame Yup that's me! The only history geek in a fifty mile radius Living in Bumhicksville Nowhere name changed but very accurate is pretty terrible and going to school at Caucasian Christian School of Goodness again a name but an apt description is even worse I snapped a bit while I was attending due to the lack of permissible self-expression but horrible histories were my guiding light Flash forward six months Our teacher wants us to do a history project about an ancient civilization Since our curriculum is EurocentricismJPEG most kids pick the Greeks or Romans and completely skip over all of the good stuff like orgies and gladiator fights in their presentations I choose my favorite ancient civilization The Aztecs My teachers knew I'd been reading Horrible Histories but what they didn't know was that I'd also been avidly reading all about Aztec mythology I walk up to the front of the class pull on a turquoise skull mask and raise my arms to the sky My teacher goes sheet white l give my presentation and skip nothing Nothing Every detail of the sacrifices every dirty disgusting part It all culminates when I point to the calendar It's May! I shout my little girl voice rising an octave My teacher looks like she's about to phone the police The Aztecs called May Toxcat No one moves or breathed I continue blithely Toxcatl was a month dedicated to the worship of the god of the night Tezcatlipoca I'm still going Everyone is afraid Marie one of my classmates looks like she's about to cry They'd dress a brave warrior as the god all year and at the end-I pull the red streamers out from behind my display shouting They'd sacrifice him! The kids shriek as the streamers of blood roll out across the floor The principal walked in hearing the commotion just in time for me to really get into character and shout BLOOD FOR THE GOD OF THE NIGHT! And that's how Horrible Histories and all mentions of the Aztecs were banned from my school As an ancient civilizations grad who specialized in the cultures of Central and South America THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER 37729 notes Meme
