Frida Kahlo 1920 - 2014
STOP THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT
This is not the first thing I should see when I go on the Friday Kahlo tag
Frida Kahlo was one of the strongest most influential women to ever exist in Mexico and the world as a whole
How dare you
How fucking dare you
You do not take one of my few latina feminist role models and taint her with your patriarchal western society view of beauty
As a Mexican female who is hoping to make an impact on the world through the arts, finding such a strong feminist role model who I can connect to because of cultural backgrounds is hard enough to find
How dare you do this shit
Does the shitty OP know Frida Kahlo used makeup to darken her unibrow and mustache. She didn’t give a fuck about your racist, fascist beauty standards, and was attempting to make you uncomfortable.
And it worked.
You’re so uncomfortable with her appearance to the extent of “white washing” her features.
And fuck anyone who thinks she would be prettier if she removed her facial hair.
It’s sad that no one understands the genius of Frida Kahlo and her artwork.
