Standing at the crossroads of lady boners and antiquity buffs, Bangable Dudes in History is a blog that attempts to teach people history the right way: through their pants. Each post spotlights a new historical figure with a pie-chart breakdown of why you should’ve let them fondle you 200 years ago.

Most of the dudes seem to be on point (no homo) — bad ass General Sherman, a young, boyish Stalin and even less mainstream characters, like Lincoln’s attempted assassin, Lewis Powell. But you can tell the blog’s written by a woman/gay man because their take on chicks is questionable. So far they’ve only had one “Bangdable Dame” and it was Juliette Gordon Low:

She looks like Anne Hathaway’s more boring cousin. Plus, the fact that she founded the Girl Scouts probably means she was really awkward with men and had to dedicate herself to something sad, like collecting cats or, in this case, children.

Anyway, Bangable Dudes in History lets you send in suggestions of dead man/woman boners, so email them and maybe we can get proper historical hottie up there, like Mata Hari or Charlotte Bronte:

    woh, no homo(phobia) but that Powell dude is pretty hot indeed.

    If they had t-shirt fashion back in Civil War days, girls would have run around in Lewis Powell t-shirts like they do with James Dean or Che Guevara. Dude was a rock star!

    pamela coleman smith, who illustrated the rider-waite tarot deck, was super hot and lived a really cool life for a woman at the time

    That Jimmy Hoffa had a big dick!

    using pie charts for this shit makes little sense.

    I like this nerdy shit.

    yah that chick is the worst. who ever made that pie chart clearly has no idea what makes a chick ‘bangable’, in a way that makes me way angrier than I should be. PS I’d totally get into some weird ‘spartacus’ shit with that powell guy, as in I’d sword fight him to the death so he wouldn’t have to suffer crucifixion. And I mean that figuratively

    Oscar Wilde, anyone? Total babe…

    Juliette Gordon Low was the BOMB. She founded the Girl Scouts because she thought it was stupid boys got to have adventures (Boy Scouts already existed) and girls didn’t. Whatever she looks like, she was definitely not awkward or boring.
