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.

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.

What You Go Through When You’re Not The "Ideal" Curvy Latina


What You Go Through When You’re Not The “Ideal” Curvy Latina

Almost everyone assumes all Latinas have bodacious bods like Sofía Vergara and J.Lo – and you don’t, you won’t be considered a “real” Latina. Well, surprise! Not all Latina genetics come with plentiful butts, boobs or hips. So here’s what happens when you’re a not-so-curvy Latina and just tryna make it #werk in spite of such great adversity.

Abuela will always be having a conniption that you haven’t eaten enough.


She’s more up-to-date with your body fat percentage than her favorite novela.

…Even though she feeds you enough to nourish a small country.

Seriously, how many piles of rice and beans can one woman consume?

Your tía will buy you a faja to get you snatched ⏳.


Because you know, got to make sure you get that hourglass shape AT ALL COSTS, especially if your family says you’re shaped just like your little brother.

Even you start to doubt and compare yourself to your curvy primas.

Was this just me? Doubt it.

The rest of your fam hits you with the “Ay, qué flaca estás” every time they see you.


You’re never really sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

You die a little when outsiders describe a “real” Latina.

…because apparently only ones with big butts like J.Lo count. #sorrynotsorry my genetics don’t fit into your “ideal.”

All this starts messing with your head, and you realize you’re stuck with an impossible standard to live up to.

I made a thing

You should have skinny arms and a tiny waist, but enormous boobs and a backside big enough to keep up with the Kardashians.

You give in and do the impossible to grow.

Like doing ridiculous diets and Instagram exercise challenges to plump yourself up.

…Until you realize those boob exercises don’t work.

Nope. And binge-eating pastelitos won’t go to your ass either. You’ve tried and failed.

People (even your own family members) feel the need to remind you of your body type.

And you never know how to react.

…And you will henceforth and forevermore be known as ‘Flaca.’


Your real name doesn’t matter because you’re skinny… and that’s all that matters. It’s cool tho.

But whatever. You’re still you and you’re still hot.

You’re still lucky enough to be a Latina, and no matter what shape and size you are, you’re gorgeous.~*~*~
