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.
Every single Frida Kahlo appreciation post Ive seen egregiously neglects the fact that she endured and survived a car accident that resulted in a metal pole being shoved through her body and essentially destroying her uterus. This incident informed many of her paintings and depictions of herself and yet she did not allow it to end herself. Her paintings became monuments to and representations of her suffering that she freely, openly and powerfully expressed. She painted her reality defying not only conventional beauty norms and continuing to slay anyways, but also artistic norms. While others considered her works surreal, she adamantly stood her ground saying that they were not surreal at all; that they were 100% accurate and realistic depictions of her suffering. And I think for someone to turn life crippling tragedy into the worlds most recognized self portraits is pretty badass and worth appreciating.
Yeah, her disability was CRUCIAL to her life as an artist— it was while she was recovering from her accident that she began to paint, and she explored self-portrait so thoroughly because it was all she had— she had a mirror over her bed and paints, and she used art as a way to cope with the MASSIVE amount of pain she was in and the fact that just as she was (I’ve seen sources that say 16 and others that say 19 but that age range), her whole world was reduced to suffering in a bed, for a very long time.
For that matter, she was not perfectly able-bodied before her accident because of childhood illness, but after the accident… She had her youth stolen, and she rebelled against being seen as an invalid, as being reduced to her suffering (the way that disabled people are STILL viewed), and she presented herself in her own terms in part to throw in the faces of those who presumed to narrow her down to the image of what they thought a ‘sick woman’ was/should be.
So basically all these separate posts are kind of combining into my head into this one epic fantasy series with mermaids and knights and dragons and pirates
where all the relevant characters are lesbians.
see this is stephanie and this is reason #21263765843 why she’s literally the best person
» I respect both Lee Hoo and Kris for standing up for themselves and I applaud them,it takes guts and courage to do that. But now the thing is when Kris talked about mistreatment most of the people bashed him and now when it comes to Lee Hoo almost everyone supports him and they should…But don’t you get it-how can Kris stand up for EXO when EXO are the ones that said that they don’t have a problem with their agency after Kris left and thus making Kris look bad and like he was the evil one.I am not saying anything against EXO it’s just that EXO decided to continue as idols no matter what they are enduring and Kris decided to not be mistreated so OFC HE WOULD STAND UP ONLY FOR HIMSELF! In Lee Hoo’s case although other ZE:A members haven’t said anything I feel like they are sticking together you know and that is why he could stand up for themselves as well while EXO wasn’t sticking with Kris,let’s be honest there is no way that exo and kris haven’t talked about problems in their company before and we all know that SM is a shitty agency-I mean JYJ,Hangeng-they wouldn’t leave without a reason.So what I am saying is-Kris should not be bashed,Lee Hoo should not be bashed-THEY ARE COURAGEOUS&YOUNG MEN STANDING UP FOR THEIR RIGHTS AND WE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM AND ALL THE OTHERS THAT STAND UP AGAINST THEIR AGENCIES…#staystrongkris #staystrongleehoo
