Cursive handwriting back then was so beautiful

Penmanship. A lost art. This coming from someone whose handwriting looks like the work of a doctor who had to pee really bad.

Back in school we had to learn cursive handwriting from 3rd till 7th grade or so (they’d check our notebooks to make sure that we were writing in cursive only, they also gave us weekly practice sheets to turn in for a grade). I still can’t write in cursive for shit


EAZ480

Yep, we were taught cursive too, for about 3 years from 2nd to 4th grade. I remember 5th grade being far more about the substance of what we were writing rather than the style. And I’m with you, I can’t write cursive either.

Think about how fucking beautiful this thread is. These two lads, persecuted in their own time for the horrific crime of true love, hoping against hope that at _some_ point they would be accepted for who they are. And all _we_ see is how beautiful their writing is. While things are far from perfect, for _that_ to be the topic of conversation regarding these letters, shows that the enlightened time they speak of is finally upon us

I can write prettier cursive 😄

Looks like the handwriting on my doctor's prescription forms.

My mum still writes like this. Then there’s my 5yo style writing

It’s tragic looking back at the terrible loss to society, science and who knows how many peoples lives by the terrible prejudices of the past.

Never in their wildest dreams would they have imagined that their wish came true, nearly a century later

"It's very normal for two close friends to describe in vivid detail how they quiver when they touch, and how heaven and earth shift when they share a deep kiss."
