Reads: I need feminism because I was told I could be charged with Misdemeanor Assault at 14 because I broke my attackers finger. We were in the Girl’s Locker room when it happened. He wasn’t charged for attacking me because BOYS WILL BE BOYS. He was 22…
NOTE: I wasn’t charged either AND he wasn’t charged for trespassing on school grounds either.
Why Tumblr should Fall In Love with Frida Kahlo.
i love everything about this because i love frida kahlo, but how are you going to not list the fact she was in a horrible bus accident that basically crippled her for most of her life and while lying bedridden she began to paint. frida kahlo didn’t give up and that makes her truly amazing.
Also her bus accident made her unable to have children (she became pregnant three times and had to terminate them due to her condition) which was a huge source of pain for her and many of her paintings depict the enormous physical, emotional and mental suffering she was in (see: columna rota). She was badass but also had a lot of struggle in her life, which was a huge part of who she was and how she viewed the world.
to say she couldnt care less about what people thought of her is an understatement. even though people thought her natural unibrow and moustache were ugly, she embraced them and even darkened them with makeup. honestly the greatest woman.
