It’s important to tell girls that they do not need to be sexual in order to be loved and respected. And it’s equally important to tell girls that as human beings they have bodily autonomy and can do whatever they see fit to do with their own person.
If you give one of these messages and not the other then you’re giving the incomplete truth.
Here’s a hilarious Helen Keller joke!
Do you know what no one saw or heard coming?
Helen Keller’s radical socialist activism for the rights of the poor, women, the disabled. And so people ignored and belittled her politics. They argued a deaf, blind person could not know what she was talking about. And so they reduced her to the safe story of a young girl who overcame disability, and nothing else.
Wait I mean haha she was blind! How funny.
