BETTY DAVIS!!! . Betty Davis was a funk music pioneer, deemed too scandalous & huge to open for KISS bc she'd steal their show. She got picketed & boycotted by the NAACP in the 70s for advocating for sex workers in her music: "We are not all doctors, lawyers, nurses and social workers. Those girls standing in the doorway on Broadway and 46th street are valid; they are out there existing – they are also black. Regardless of what they stand for or what they're doing, they are valid." . . .I just posted my @bitchmedia about Betty Davis on patreon (free) in light of the Rough Trade trailer release (Arf). . #bettydavis #funk #dontyoucallhernotramp #eleganthustler #bitchmagazine #feministhistory #sexworkiswork
