Trigger warnings for ableism, abuse, autistic “therapy”, discussion of a cure, discussion of murder, eugenics, the way Autism Speaks uses their research, etc.  All of this is under a cut.  Be forewarned.

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.

if the people doing those hood pranks aren’t white stop saying that they’re white so you can actually hold anti-black poc responsible for being anti-black and they can stop feeling like they’re off the hook

It’s actually terrifying how many self proclaimed body positive people “love all bodies” until you reach a certain weight… then it’s “omg no gross, you need to be healthy, you’re not healthy even though I know nothing about you other than seeing how fat you look, ew gross, lose weight, i say this because i care, p.s. you’ll die”

like… you do realize body positivity is about ALL bodies right? not just the ones you feel don’t threaten your insecurities?
