"I’m reluctant at this stage in the game to expose you to new ideas, but having taught you all history on a strictly non-gender-orientated basis I just wonder whether it occurs to any of you how dispiriting this can be?

Why do you think there are no women historians on TV? I’ll tell you why: Because history’s not such a frolic for women as it is for men. Why should it be? They never get around the conference table. In 1919, for instance, they just arranged the flowers, then gracefully retired. History is a commentary on the various and continuing incapabilities of men. What is history? History is women following behind with the bucket.
And I’m not asking you to espouse this point of view, but the occasional nod in its direction can do you no harm.”

So I’m listening to my old FMA soundtrack.

Veiled chameleon, (Chamaeleo calyptratus), prepared with a process called diaphonization, or clearing and staining. The specimen undergoes a series of chemical baths including submersion in a digestive enzyme to render the tissues transparent.
