    The 1722 Petit Albert describes in detail how to make a Hand of Glory, as cited from him by Grillot De Givry:

    Take the right or left hand of a felon who is hanging from a gibbet beside a highway; wrap it in part of a funeral pall and so wrapped squeeze it well. Then put it into an earthenware vessel with zimat, nitre, salt and long peppers, the whole well powdered. Leave it in this vessel for a fortnight, then take it out and expose it to full sunlight during the dog-days until it becomes quite dry. If the sun is not strong enough put it in an oven with fern and vervain. Next make a kind of candle from the fat of a gibbeted felon, virgin wax, sesame, and ponie, and use the Hand of Glory as a candlestick to hold this candle when lighted, and then those in every place into which you go with this baneful instrument shall remain motionless

    You bought the ticket now take the ride. And don’t you dare compare it to racism, sexist, homophobia, transphobia, etc.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t see the difference between being trans and being modified. As far as I’m concerned, you are not comfortable in the body you are in and you change it to make it so.

    Oh HELL no.

    Again, please if you disagree, inform me to make me better educated. I’d Be more than happy for more knowledge. That is purely my own perspective.

    Being modified is choice, being trans is not. It’s that simple.

    Piercings are an addition to your body, hormone therapy and surgery is (to those who want it) correcting your body.

    Take a long hard think about what transgendered folks (who went through surgery or hormone treatment) have to go through on a daily basis versus what a modified person has to go through and why the person has to go through this. What are the different consequences for these people and their modification/transition? Pro-tip, read up on hate-crimes and violence against transgendered people.

    Dighton Probyn, 2nd Punjab Cavalry, 1857 In 1858, he was appointed to command 1st Regiment of Sikh Irregular Cavalry. This became 11th Bengal Cavalry in 1861. Although Probyn gave up command of the regiment in 1866, a year later he sat to Swinton for his portrait in this uniform, an indication of his pride in the regiment. Probyn served in the 2nd China War (1857-1860), and went on to receive a number of honours and awards, becoming a General in 1888 and a Privy Counsellor in 1901. Died in 1924.
