Okay so I know this is kinda taboo but anyways.
Frida Kahlo: Not too easy on the eyes. I mean she’s got the lady-mo and the monobrow thing going on. She didn’t know where to put her blush or what shade lipstick would obviously suit her skin tone. Really, she’s a bit of a wreck. So this got me to thinking. What would have happened if her girlfriends had done the right thing and taken her to a beautician, (which clearly needed to happen)? I did a subtle re-paint over the top of her original self-portrait to “conceptualize” what it would have looked like if she had been whisked off to Beauty Works or the likes….I didn’t want to alter the integrity of the original painting too much. What do you reckon?
Did you really just skin-lighten a Frida Kahlo self portait
and remove her facial hair
and call her “a wreck”
and then say she couldn’t choose a fucking lipstick to suit her skin tone
after you changed her skin tone
how can one person be everything that is wrong with the world at once
remember that time frida kahlo said white people were boring and had faces like unbaked rolls
This OP is a great example of someone who thinks they’re being “edgy” and “controversial” by adhering as strongly as possible to upholding oppressive ideologies.
The funniest part of this is that OP calls the re-paint subtle
- removing her facial hair is not subtle
- you might think whitewashing her is subtle but its fuckin not you asshole
- you didnt just take out the monobrow you thinned her whole eyebrows and made them shorter
- you reshaped her lips???? like what you thought she fucked up her garish lipstick in the original? you thought she wasn’t fucking SYMMETRIC enoguh or something?
- you put EYELINER ON HER
- like what the fuck??
- do you know anything about frida kahlo
- anything at all
- if you do
- then you know this is fucked up on so many levels
- either way
- go choke on a fucking thornbush
Part of me feels like this has to be a joke.
i think it was “intended” as a joke. however, instead of accepting that yeah it’s pretty offensive and being sincere it seems the artist is lapping up all the praise and the “oh those sj warriors, they’re so over sensitive”…
disregarding the fact that Frida was and is one of the most influential women of color in the art world and that she never meant for her self portraits to be “pretty” for anyone else is shitty, so saying “it’s just a joke” kinda makes it worse…
her self portraits make most people, especially women, feel comfortable and at peace with themselves and the painful experiences they live through, and when you joke about that and gussy her up, i meant shit, how do you EXPECT people to take it…?
yes, people have done the same kind of repaints to various artists’ Venus’ and DaVinci’s Mona Lisa, and that shit was problematic too. you don’t see people doing repaints of Van Gogh’s self portraits makin’ him look like a male model, or Michelangelo’s Creation of Man- why don’t we trim down “Man” a bit, define those abs, give him a sexy tan and make him more well endowed? hell no, that’d be offensive, marring great works of art and all that noise
why call yourselves artists and then not take some responsibility for the work you put out there. your work is highly visible, you’re not doing this in a vacuum, and you know it, especially when putting it on the internet. so you really need to examine yourself and let people call you on your shit, ‘cause that’s how you grow. making a living at art is a wonderful thing, but getting to a better place with yourself and your work should also be a priority.
…i didn’t even set out to rant today
:trying not to punch things:
IT DOESN’T MATTER IF IT WAS A JOKE OR NOT, THIS IS UTTER BULLSHIT. IT IS NOT CUTE. IT IS NOT FUNNY. IT IS MASSIVELY OFFENSIVE ON MANY LEVELS. what universe are you living in that you think this is okay?
people can go ahead and start spewing shit about ‘sj idiots’ or whatever they fucking want,
because my reaction to this was instant, authentic shock and disgust, from the very core of my being. it actually hurts, okay? it actually hurts.
and all you can say is it’s “kind of taboo?”
Someone once told me that “fat girls shouldn’t have long hair.”
Whenever I wear my hair down, I like to think I’m sending them a nice big ‘fuck you’. :) I’m not here to decorate your world!
long haired fat girl checking in!
The Center for Democracy and Technology says, “CISPA has a very broad, almost unlimited definition of the information that can be shared with government agencies and it supersedes all other privacy laws.”
According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation:
An ISP could even interpret this bill as allowing them to block accounts believed to be infringing, block access to websites like The Pirate Bay believed to carry infringing content, or take other measures provided they claimed it was motivated by cybersecurity concerns.
Internet users were able to push GoDaddy to withdraw its support of SOPA. Now it’s time to make sure Facebook knows we’re furious.
i think if i’d had a reminder all this time that my uncle existed, that my mom had a brother, that my grandfather had another child who was just never around, who apparently felt no need to help his sister take care of his father, i’d have popped a blood vessel in my brain by this point.
and now it’s all setting in,
and he might be coming to stay at our house for Grampa’s funeral.
hip fucking hooray.
take the time to watch the whole thing.
GOD FUCKING DAMN IT ANDREA
YOU FUCKING SUCK AT LIFE. I DID NOT THINK I COULD POSSIBLY DISLIKE YOU MORE, BUT I GUESS I WAS FUCKING WRONG.
SERIOUSLY GUYS, I WANNA TAKE A BRICK TO HER FACE. DALE, STOP BEING NICE TO HER, SHE’S A GODDAMN BITCH.
i am getting way too emotional about fictional characters… but what else is new?
it’s funny, isn’t it…
how we were all “incredibly nice people” before you started hurting somebody we loved. and after that, we were all assholes, losers, liars, et cetera.
i don’t understand HOW THE FUCK THIS WAS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN. this is THE MOST crushingly heartless thing i have seen in a LONG FUCKING TIME. WHO THE FUCK GAVE THIS THE FUCKING OKAY?
Sheriff’s deputies shot nearly 50 wild animals – including 18 rare Bengal tigers and 17 lions – in a big-game hunt across the Ohio countryside Wednesday after the owner of an exotic-animal park threw their cages open and committed suicide in what appeared to be one last act of spite against his neighbors and police.
As homeowners nervously hid indoors, officers equipped with high-powered rifles and shoot-to-kill orders spread out through fields and woods to hunt down about 56 animals that had been set loose from the Muskingum County Animal Farm by its owner, Terry Thompson, before he shot himself to death Tuesday.
After an all-night hunt that extended into Wednesday afternoon, 48 animals had been killed and six captured alive and taken to the Columbus Zoo, authorities said. The only animals believed still on the loose were a wolf and a monkey.
Just saw this on the news.
Why couldn’t they shoot them with tranquilizer guns?!?! I DON’T UNDERSTAND.
This is disgusting. How in the hell could this be allowed? I don’t understand. They didn’t deserve to die for being what they are. Why didn’t they just use tranquilizer guns?? This is a disgrace, I can’t stand that our society allows this. All because of one person’s stupid mistake they all had to have thier lives taken away? They couldn’t have just been tranquilized and brought to a sanctuary? Do you have any ideas how many sanctuaries would have opened their arms to these beautiful animals? But instead they lay dead because our society doesn’t value their lives whatsoever. It makes me sick andsad and so determined. One day I will help them and one day no animal will suffer at the hands of any human being.
Even in death, these animals are so beautiful…
Sobbing. How the fuck could they do this?
dear anyone in a position of power over someone else
if you are taking advantage of them… if you are screwing them over… if you are squashing them under your mighty boot…
i hope you know that karma will fucking get you one day. and it will be so much worse than whatever you did. and people will fucking cheer, and pump their fists in the air, and have a toast to your comeuppance. so fuck you, eat shit and die.
this includes, but is not limited to:
ps- :flips bird:
i am so with this guy↑
help this person get their guitar back! pass this on!
