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?

ok I found it

OH MY GOD GET THE FUCK OUT

a woman who doesn’t subscribe to the idealizations of beauty? welp, gotta go in and pluck and polish and completely bastardize every one of her independent thoughts and conscious decisions because eugh, how gross, how unladylike. 

frida kahlo embraced her natural beauty and her ethnic roots and you really have no right to say that she should have been taken to an aesthetician because you don’t think that she’s attractive. 

you say you didn’t want to alter the integrity of the original, but by feminizing and idealizing kahlo’s image that is exactly what you have done. 

jesus fucking christ.

OP you have committed sacrilege. Sacrilege!

Right on cue. Violence of spirit.

Imposing western beauty ideals on a WOC artist who deliberately depicted her natural beauty through her art is oppressive, anti-art, anti-woman, anti-Frida. Fuck OP.

Is the OP trolling? This fucker’s trolling. Right? What in the ever-loving shit is this travesty?

It’s a straightforward question. I mean, Siri’s told me where pizza and hardware stores are nearby. Ladyparts!

Barricades blocking a Pennsylvania election precinct: “NO PARKING FOR DEMOCRATS - WALK THAT WILL BE THE MOST WORK YOU DO ALL DAY.” Full story here.

Bad punctuation? Check.
ALL CAPS? CHECK.
Blatantly ignorant and crass? Check.
Yup, pretty sure Republicans did this.

Nobody tries to take away your right to use a condom. Nobody hammers into your head that you should feel guilty and shameful about preventing your gift-from-God sperm from fertilizing an egg and thus ensuring the birth of a beautiful child. No politician tells you using condoms makes you a slut. Nobody bombs a convenience store that sells condoms, threatens people who put condom vending machines in areas, or attacks politicians who support condom use.

I took a picture of a condom vending machine in a prominent area while I was in Tuscany a few weeks ago. Tuscany, which is in Italy, the most Catholic country in the world. You could buy condoms. Cheap. In the open. No muss, no fuss.

Male privilege is a hell of a drug.

THE. FUCK. 

I mean, I don’t support shit about the film… but, um, and all-Black cast is an issue for a fucking Western European country? THE FUCK.

I read the article, and it was apparently banned for a QUOTE “lack of diversity in it’s cast”.

France, THIS will make me freedom fry your ass.

racism google style

"Why do Indian people have British accents"

"Why do Chinese people burn money"

"Why do Jewish people wear hats"

"Why do Black people smoke menthols"

Enough people are apparently asking these dumb-shit questions for it to be suggested.

Yes, it’s such a shame Obama hasn’t paid any attention to the problems of college students and soon-to-be graduates. Isn’t it just awful that he’s spent the entire year talking about nothing but killing bin Laden and how he won’t even set foot on a college campus, because that’s how much he doesn’t care?
Or maybe Tim Hartman has no long-term memory and the events of the past month escape him.

Literally last week, conservative cartoonists were complaining that Obama is pandering to students too much.
Do they just forget anything that happened five days ago?

Exactly what would Mitt Romney say to the student that would be so much better? “Get a job at your dad’s company!” “Live off your investments ‘til the economy picks up!” “Hope you weren’t looking for work in the public sector, LOL!!!” -Jess


The same people that are buying the crap the “satirist” who drew up the cartoon is pitching…as the old folks would say, there’s a bridge in Brooklyn that’s for sale too.
Yeah, ONE campaign ad about getting bin Laden and apparently now that’s the only thing Obama has had going for him.The Right has the shortest memory and the most utter willful ignorance. 
Two words: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
Back in 2003. For those of you who aren’t that great at math, that was NINE years ago. By Dubya and Co. His FIRST term.
Anyway…

This is how people reacted, PUBLICLY, when a black man scored a game winning goal in a hockey game.   They put their NAME on that shit.
Please, you guys, try to keep your sports fanaticism and your horrible inbred flippant racism separate.  For all of us.
Here’s How Racists On Twitter Reacted to Joel Ward’s Series-Winning Goal Against Boston (Deadspin)

And just when I was starting to really dig hockey.
People suck.

This is vile.

Welp. I might be stereo typing, but white people suck.  At least they put their full names on their twitters.  That will end well for them.

Apparently some Bruins fans were yelling the racial slur as the Caps celebrated. Abhorrent, but unfortunately not surprising. I’m glad the names are up here. 

Nothing surprises me anymore. Ergo, nothing fails to make me feel utterly fucking revolted and fearful for humanity.

"In the pantheon of TV mothers, Betty Draper may be the worst. She doesn’t seem to like her children at all and in fact seems determined to make them non-entities in their own home. (We haven’t even mentioned the CONSTANT drinking and smoking around her kids — and while pregnant. I also was shocked by scenes of her dieting while pregnant.)"

Is ‘Mad Men’s’ Betty Draper the worst TV mom ever? | Momania: A Blog for Busy Moms

I had to roll my eyes at this. Many women drank and smoked through their pregnancies in the 60s. It wasn’t uncommon or scandalous, and that’s hardly a sign that a mother didn’t care about her children, at least not at the time. A lot of moms did the same.

(via robot-heart-politics)

Seriously.  So ridiculous.  I think my grandma smoked a pack a day (or more) while pregnant with all of her kids and gained almost no weight.  Why don’t people seem to understand that there were different standards back then? Different attitudes towards health issues and the like.  My mom told me that doctors used to lecture pregnant women all the time about how they should be watching their weight. 

(via bluebears)

Different mores and standards back then, absolutely. As for Betty not seeming to like her kids, add a laugh track to her lines about Sally and she’s a proto-Dooce hip, wry anti-mommy mom that are just so effing cool to be these days.
