This Comic Perfectly Sums Up Why Frida Kahlo Is So F*cking Iconic
Writer Rebecca Martin and artist Gavin Aung Than teamed up to create THE perfect Frida Kahlo poster. Why’s it so perfect? Because it gives girls the power to embrace the little quirks and imperfections that make them so perfectly unique. This poster will give you so much life, you won’t be able to handle it.
We all have that one thing that we wish we could change.
Whether it’s a unibrow or a lunarcito, there are always “things” we wish we could change, but why even?
Like this young girl who was bullied for having beautiful, full brows.
“At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.” – Frida Kahlo
Even though she wanted to change, her mother (like our mothers) wasn’t going to let her change herself to try to fit in.
Seriously, though. What mami would let you change your perfect little bodies?
Instead of letting the little girl admit defeat, mami wanted her to learn firsthand how beautiful she really is.
Enter queen Frida.
Because Frida didn’t care about that sh*t. Had she, we wouldn’t have her epic and magnificent art that we all look up to today.
Be like this girl, learn to love every inch of you and let your strange flag fly. There is only one of you, and you’re beautiful just the way you are.
