The Broken Column, 1944 by Frida Kahlo
Kahlo was 18 years old when she was involved in a horrific traffic accident, in which an iron rod pierced her abdomen, right foot was crushed, and two vertebrae were fractured, as well as a number of other bones, including eleven fractures in her right leg. As she recovered in a full body cast, her mother brought her a small lap easel, and, with a mirror over her bed, began painting self-portraits. This self-portrait embodies many elements that were in Kahlo’s artwork, including the themes of isolation, a broken body, and intense suffering and pain. This painting also embodies another one of Kahlo’s themes, that of two bodies, one of which she is a complete and full bodied woman, and another, reflecting broken insides.
I really do love Frida Kahlo’s work…

So this just made my day. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
“In this society, if a man is called a woman, that’s the biggest insult he could get. Is that because women are considered something less? I know people want me to sort of defend myself, to sit here and be like, ‘I’m a boy, but I wear makeup sometimes.’ But, you know, to me, it doesn’t really matter. I don’t really have that sort of strong gender identity — I identify as what I am.”

This! Oh so many times this.
AND THIS IS WHY I LOVE ANDREJ PEJIC SO MUCH. My thoughts exactly.
The Boston Marathon was bombed.
There was an explosion at JFK library.
Obama was almost sent poison.
There was a fire and enormous explosion at a Texas fertiliser plant.
MIT is under lock down because a gun man shot and killed a campus officer.
I think we’re all wondering this at the moment…

Dear Coquette: On being a martyr
I’m just gonna be blunt and say this: my boyfriend is suicidal, and I’m probably a selfish bitch disguised as a girl trying to protect her own heart. I worry that he’ll break up with me because when his head is in a bad place he pushes everyone away. And I worry he’ll then off himself and it…
“Never allow someone to hold you as an emotional hostage in what is obviously an unhealthy relationship.” Listen, I’ve been there. Coquette’s right. Take her advice or be prepared for the consequences of a deep kind of pain.
"If we actually started calling bullying what it is and address it as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, fat phobia and classism it would actually give children a better way to deal with the very same power dynamics they will face as adults, while also giving adults more responsibility to challenge the intolerance that is rooted within our society overall."

Words are important. When you can’t name something that has an affect on you, then it will always have power over you.
bullying is too vague. it’s time to stop beating around the bush and actually change policies to end bullying!
