Intellegent free thinking women = witch..... I guess I'd be a peasant, there was a lot of them about
A Dutch theorist.
... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!
If I were allowed to choose my profession, I'd probably be apprenticing under an alchemist or something like that (I don't know much about history).
If I were following in my father's footsteps, I'd be a merchant. Or an artist.

A homosexual troubadour, male, traveling England and France. I don't want to be a woman in those times!
Oh, yeah, well if I could be some European king or prince's favorite mistress yes maybe then I'd be a woman in those times. Well maybe I'd settle for a duke too.

Yeah, I totally see this happening for me too. Light the faggots!

I have little doubt I'd be a bar wench were I alive and kicking in those days

I'm sure you're also a descendant of a lowly serf from around that time, and chances are your serf blood is thicker.
As for me, I'd probably be poisoning wells, and blaming it on the Jews.
Because that's how I roll.
Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
