she was not bisexual , you get that from a movie that according to frida khalo was never authorized and that salma hayek just made up to sell her movie. 0 KT Carroll 4 days ago Wow you are mistaken in so many levels. It's her struggle and ability to create art out of pain that is admired. Not her iron fist of feminism. All women make mistakes. Our mistakes do not define us. Frida is a picture of heroism because she continued to make her art the way she needed too instead of confirming. She was also brutally honest. And believing in communism is not a bad thing. In fact the only reason it would never work is because humans are too selfish. 0 reply MiyukiNohara 0 minutes ago yes there are feminist groups on the internet that post her as an icon of feminist so yes that is why i commented on that

according to wikipedia that's not even remotely true. He supposedly said something like "too bad, too bad, it's too late" - cause he couldnt drink the last wine delivery anymore.

those who commit suicide are both very brave and cowards....can you imagine being so afraid of life and what it brings,but being brave enough to pain your body for you to travell to unknown...suicide is a paradox
