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.

word to this. Helen Keller is my hero for half a dozen reasons, particularly the above-noted activism (I also think that her academic career is notable), and a few people know by now what happens if you reduce her to a joke on my watch.

like its already despicable to mock someone if they really were helpless or just coping ok, but the thing about Helen Keller is that she was better than you. so it’s not even picking on someone over whom you have an unfair advantage - she buries you, motherfucker.

kiss the ground she walks on!
