Commemorating 1916 with "drunk Canadians in London, the police who impersonated them, and the women who sold sex in the bars that they frequented"

Commemorating 1916 with "drunk Canadians in London, the police who impersonated them, and the women who sold sex in the bars that they frequented" | Sex History | Scoop.it

The world has just commemorated the 100th annivesary of the beginning of the First World War. While most historians have come to categorize the war as, in the words of Richard Evans, ‘the seminal catastrophe of the entire period’, ideologically driven government officials and some military historians insist that the war was a triumph of good over evil, and a resounding victory for Britain and its allies. Many controversies have therefore arisen about who, what, and how to commemorate, and about the very nature of the war itself.


In this post, I’ve chosen to commemorate some drunk Canadians in London in 1916, the police who impersonated them, and the women who sold sex in the bars that they frequented. With a title like this, of course I want to entertain. But I also want to argue that the sexual history of war lies at the very heart of the history of war itself.

This article reminded me of the Newbie Writers Podcast episode, the Slang Smack Down.  We have so many slang words that go in and out of fashion and are sometimes specific to a certain group.  Here are a couple:

He has been measuring sidewalks upside down.

 

He is holding up his head so as not to lose any.

 

He has a champagne appetite and beer income drunk.

 

He has a cold tea drunk.

 

He has a pink tea drunk.During the holidays, don't get so drunk you think the next liquid is only pink tea!
