Blah blah blah. I, blindxdoll, created this community because my personal journal was getting unorganized, so WAL-AH! Me being a giant nerd with an Amazon encyclopedia named it 'The Floralia'. The Floralia was long overdue (due to my laziness for a little over two years). I will post the rest of my graphics of my many fandom addictions here (obviously). Blah blah blah.
"The Floralia was a festival of courtesans, which included athletic displays such as women's chariot races and gladiatorial fights. From Juvenal's description, participation was by no means limited to courtesans, but involved wives and matrons and daughters of upstanding citizens, such being common enough that they owned their own equipment and trained in advance with quite serious intent, even if, as for women wrestlers in our own day, satiric delight or criticism was inescapable."
