After my first attempt to approach Frida ,her marriage, her accidents, and her life in general today I want to share my opinion about what Frida Kahlo has offered to me.
It's not strange to say that a person that lived 60 years before changed a persons life and point of view. Frida was an artist, she painted mostly herself (and her suffering). Her pain was the main theme in her paintings, her pain wasn't only psychical, caused by her bus accident but also psychological, because of Diego Rivera and his infidelities. Frida is a strong role model of a woman who's not afraid to show emotions and talk about forbidden things.Death, birth, wounds, abortions and every other subject that no one else dared to speak about has been painted by Frida. It's not a secret that female genitalia seem TODAY as forbidden image.. Western society has created a fear around women's body and creates a mystery in the whole process of birth.
How many times have you seen paintings of women giving birth? How socking it seems to see the actual image of female genitalia.. Now think about how free the society is to accept male genitalia.. The main point of this post is to stop the fear against being human. I'm a real person and I have feelings, I suffer, I cry and I'm not ashamed of this! What Frida taught me is that my body is mine and I have no reason to feel guilty of my existence in any way. I don't feel ashamed of my body, of my weight, height, scars or anything that differentiates me. I want to be me.
