Daily Beast: St. Joan of Arc Was a Transgender
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 06/16/2014 10:08:11 AM PDT by chessplayer

Was St. Joan of Arc a medieval French heroine who followed God’s instructions and united her country against the marauding English? Or was she a dude Jay Michaelson sat next to in his Queer Theory survey class?

Revisionist History with a particular bias continues on it’s merry, shutterblinded way, with the dark arts of speculation now disquised as facts. What next? “Evidence” that Orville and Wilbur Wright were ‘more than just brothers’?

When history clashes with fact, rewrite both to fit the moment. It’s the liberal creed.

Because the French royals were so much superior to the English royals (who were all first cousins and total despots).

Ah, so Anne Boleyn, knowing how desperate Henry was for a son, passed the son she bore off as a girl and went to the chopping block living a unnecessary lie?
Whatever the hell for?

Joan was subjected to physical examination to prove that she was a maiden. But you know, it was the middle ages, so they might have overlooked a few things ....

There was a segment on The Hitler Channel or one of its brethren where they looked at Joan of Arc and suggested she might have been schizophrenic.

The symptoms and historic record are a pretty good match...

If she was mentally ill that would be evidence of a royal birth connection.

Even this story doesn’t get it’s facts straight. It claims Elizabeth was Henry’s favorite child, even after the birth of Edward. Yet it turns around and says Henry saw her rarely, so he was easily fooled. Who spends so little time with a ‘favorite’ that he can be fooled?
The most likely explanation for Elizabeth’s appearance and personality is that she was a lesbian.

Pure one hundred percent BS. She was to organized, understood her risks, was a quick thinker and out maneuvered French military leaders, the French court and during her trial some of the best minds around. Her answers were classics. “Are you Saved?” “Only God knows, if I'm not may He save me, if I am may He keep me.” “Wasn't it presumputous that your banner the tallest at the king's coronation?” “It did the work it deserved the honor”. How did she recognize the King? She underwent a “back ground check” before Charles placed her in charge of the French army. Then during her trial she underwent another back ground check.

He’s insane and incredibility stupid for trying to rewrite history.

The woman hated Britain. She went into battle and the people followed her. Pretty obvious why she wore that armor and men’s clothing; what else was there to protect yourself with. She didn’t take any excuses of what was being done. She was a very brave woman. The liberals will do anything to jab Christianity even to spreading their lies. Their minds are positively negative and hateful.

If the French LOST the Hundred Years War, England would become SO Gallicized and France-oriented that its political evolution - AND OURS - would have gone in an entirely different direction.

Those voices which were talking to Joan of Arc are speaking to US now if only we were astute enough to hear them.

One thing has nothing to do with the other. If her illness was incorporated into her life, it may have even helped.

But it wasn’t “the French” who burned her at the stake. She was captured, tried and burnt at Rouen, an English stronghold, by the Burgundians, who were allied with the English.

Right. Soldiers were very respectful, refined and modest toward captive combatants in the Middle Ages.

Yeah, but St. Joan of Arc is a canonized Catholic saint. In fact, she wanted to (and had a right to) appeal the verdict of the court to Rome, and her captors illegally wouldn't let her.

So if you're going to attack Christianity, it racks up double the points id you attack Catholic heroines.

That doenst make sense.
The english court could not find fault in her beliefs other than her apparel so they ended up judging her guilty and killing her because she wore men’s clothes. She wore pants in order not to get raped. When incarcerated they gave her lady clothes which she wore, and the later she fought off one of the jailors that tried to rape her, and requested again pants instead of a skirt. That sealed her fate. She was a girl that wore pants.
