This whole thing with history, herstory or whatever is bullshit, as the word history itself has nothing to do with English. As Wikipedia tells us:

The word history comes from the Ancient Greek ἱστορία[16] (historía), meaning “inquiry”, “knowledge from inquiry”, or “judge”.

It’s obvious that the word derives from ancient Greek. But I just don’t get the first part and the meme. May you give me some context please?

Someone search-and-replaced “he” and “his” with “they” and “their” without the “match whole word only” option (a feature on most text editors). This resulted in words that contain either substring being changed to nonsensical words.

Well, I would’ve expected theye instead of theyre for the longer string, but well, whatever
