What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary politics of early 20th century Mexico. Her communist affiliations are made very clear. Her relationship with Trotsky is underscored. All her political activities with Diego Rivera are constantly emphasized. The connection between her art and her politics is always made. When Chicana artists became interested in Frida Kahlo in the ‘70s and started organizing homages, they made the connection between her artistic project and theirs because they too were searching for an aesthetic compliment to a political view that was radical and emancipatory. But when the Euro-American feminists latch onto Frida Kahlo in the early ‘80s and when the American mainstream caught on to her, she was transformed into a figure of suffering. I am very critical of that form of appropriation.

If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint’, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

Wait, why do you hate John Green?

stormfather:

I’m glad you asked! I got a few asks/comments about this, so let me tell you.

I’m not a fan of John Green. I’ve read Looking for Alaska, and that’s it. Since then, I’ve been able to take a step back, and really look at him and his writing.

Here is a good list of, overall, most of his problematic actions. It includes links to his comments of slut shaming, fat/thin shaming, sexism, transphobia, racism, etc., including links to him refusing to apologize when called out on his actions. To me, that’s the problematic part. It’s one thing to use a slur in ignorance, or say something without realizing the impact, but when called out on it, and you refuse to apologize, that’s what makes you an asshole. 

Here’s whitegirlsaintshit’s list of issues with his writing, including his strange fascination with writing manic-pixie-dream-teenage-girls.

Here’s thedramaticmurderer’s list of problems, including talk about his romanticism/bigotry towards people with mental illnesses.

Here’s motherhenna’s post on the problems with his writing. It’s very long and detailed and talks not only about the problems with his writing style, but also his ideas of romanticizing illnesses.

Also, though, I will link this, which is yourfaveisproblematic’s post about being a conscious fan.

I’ll encourage other people to reblog with any links that they may have as well. I hope that clears up some of the questions y’all had!!

I’m not suuuuper duper against him but definitely dislike his work based on personal taste and… well the reasons are given above.  I feel like he is filling that niche for the “nerd” teens that are mentioned above and that is necessary just as every other genre/style is, but like is said many times at least hold this shit accountable/stop perpetuating it.  (imo)

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

this is rly good op!!

also for anyone reading there are other antidepressants (its true the most in use are SSRIs, but not everyone whose diagnosed w depression takes/is prescribed these). the differing categories relate to how different chemical compounds affect neurotransmitters.

the types of antidepressants are SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), SNRIs (Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors), Tricyclic/Tetracyclic antidepressants, MAOIs (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors), and Atypical antidepressants (meds that dont fit in any of the above categories).

There are no Jack Kerouacs or Holden Caulfields for girls. Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves; they take trips to find men.

"Great" books, as defined by the Western canon, didn’t contain female protagonists I could admire. In fact, they barely contained female protagonists at all.

Trying to remember a book you read ages ago and not knowing the title or author is so depressing. It’s like the book is forever lost to you.
