TAGGED WITH: #a'ight it's frida time #this girl. this woman. this FORCE. #absolute feminist painter; incredibly self-aware woman who did basically whatever the fuck she wanted #became a huge name in Mexican households and hooked up with any artist #including but not limited to Diego Rivera (husband) Josephine Baker and Isamu Noguchi #some people believe Leon Trotsky too #she was of course v involved in politics because of Stalin etc (and that chapter's rly fucked up #because it ends with Trotsky being assassinated and Frida+Diego turning to Stalinism) #ANYWAY: Frida's on a bus one day (she's like... 18) and the bus crashes into a trolley #she breaks her pelvis & her spinal column & dislocated shoulder & crushed foot & broken collar & a couple other things #she's bedridden and in a full body cast i shit you not -- for three months #all of this really fucked up her reproductive organs because even though she conceived two or three times #they had to be terminated #but she taught herself to walk again and really tried to take back her life #during all of this she begins painting #she actually abandons going into medicine for it #she painted herself dozens of times because she was the subject she 'knew best' #and she didn't shy away from true details #or from making little things more prominent #she painted her dreams #her nightmares #the things that plagued her and brought her joy #her focus on the body and femininity and autonomy makes her one of the greatest feminist painters #and femininity not as... not in the same way that we experience it culturally now #she would dress up in men's clothing for family portraits #she was bisexual and enjoyed affairs with all kinds of people #i read somewhere that Mexican mythology considers monkeys symbols of lust but Frida always treated them so tenderly and as though protective #and here she's wearing the crown of thorns from Jesus' crucifixion #as a necklace which suggests a martyrdom #but hanging from it is a dead hummingbird which could be a love charm -- its shape reflects that of her brow

— When men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy.
