If you could, what year would you time travel to, and why?
I mean, it’s the eternal answer to this dumb question: I’m a woman, so I wouldn’t.
But I guess if the question were “if you were an upper class white man and you could time travel, what year would you visit and why?” I would say…I don’t know, to be perfectly honest, I really don’t enjoy experiencing things physically. I much prefer to read about them. I don’t even want to be in the present day, I just want to read about it from the comfort and solitude of my cozy bedroom.
When I think back over history, all that really springs to mind are just an endless series of wars. And everything would smell and be really uncomfortable and time-consuming. I like modern luxuries and conveniences and having my own income and streaming media and effective pharmaceuticals and queers.
History? No thanks! That’s what I say.
