your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm.

Photo Exhibit: Frida Kahlo, Her Photos
Frida Kahlo, Her Photos presents over 200 images from Frida Kahlo’s personal Casa Azul archive in Mexico City. MOLAA’s featured spring exhibition includes images of Frida, by Frida and for Frida. Represented here are a wide range of photographs that shed light on a more personal side of Frida’s life, from family photographs, both traditional portraits and candid shots at the Casa Azul, to mementos of pain, love, and the artistic, intellectual and political milieu in which she lived. This selection from the Casa Azul trove also includes images by Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Man Ray, Tina Modotti, and Edward Weston among others.
Exhibition on view through June 8, 2014 at MOLAA in Long Beach, CA
just a few things i’ve collected about tumblr’s view on parenting
dont forget this gem:
this entire post just made my day
[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]
Why she have to share covers with such basic mediocrity?
that’s what I was thinking she just won and oscar and she’s sharing a cover with a b list actress’s sister and some other chick why?
^ THIS. Mediocre white girls always get all the attention while amazing black women get ignored (or have to share the spotlight with these basic chicks.)
I don’t throw the term genius around loosely, but..
Every time a guy comments on women wearing too much makeup, I apply another coat of lipstick.
I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.
women in trades are treated like such fucking shit.
my favourite kind of friendship is one where there’s a mutual understanding of the fact that we both have our own lives so we won’t be able to talk or hang out all the time but when we do talk or hang out it’s like picking up right where we left off
As the article points out, this is before you take into consideration the cost of living, transportation, health care, or any other costs.
Sorry but I will reblog this every time I see it because it is just too accurate not to.
