You had sex when you’re 14? that’s your choice, you go glen coco, that is okay
You don’t want to have sex till you are married? That takes guts and that is okay
You have a fuck buddy in highschool? Not everyone likes commitment and that is okay
You are asexual and don’t like sex? That’s your sexuality, embrace it, that is okay
But you know what isn’t okay? Shaming people for their sex lives, that is not okay.
Morgan Geyser (top) and Anissa Weier (bottom) were the two girls behind the Wisconsin Slenderman stabbings.
Geyser and Weier had invited a friend of theirs to a sleepover. In the morning, they lured their 12 year old friend into the woods, where they then stabbed her 19 times.
Their friend had survived the attack, and crawled to safety until she was saved by a bicyclist.
Geyser and Weier believed if they killed their friend Slenderman, a famous creepypasta character, would reveal himself to them.
Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)
Today in Black people invented everything you hold near and dear…
There are a few old Betty Boop cartoons on YouTube where she’s actually animated as Black. I’m both incredibly proud & disgusted to finally have names of all of the Black women who shaped so much of American culture after all of these years of being ignored.
Apparently Helen Kane actually tried to take Paramount and Max Fleshier to court over “Boop Boop Be Doop” and of course the defense had to remind her that she stole it from Baby Esther. Awful.
THAT THEY’RE NOT TRYING
BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY’RE TRYING OR NOT
JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE NOT TRYING
celebrate women over 50 because once we stop being useful to straight men’s desire as sex objects, we stop being useful to the broader culture as a whole and become invisible and disrespected. it’s up to us to engage with, respect, remember, valourize, speak about, learn from, and love women over 50…
