What White Feminists Should NOT Buy
Frida Kahlo ANYTHINGI canadagoosejacketca love Frida Kahlo, you love Frida Kahlo, we all love Frida Kahlo! She was an amazing, trail blazing woman and a talented artist, and her adoration is well deserved. However, people forget that she was an outspoken communist and therefore extremely anti capitalist, so a white girl printing her face on a t shirt or a button and selling it on Etsy really is super disrespectful to her memory.

Iconography of racist and trans Canada Goose online exclusionary feministsSusan B. Anthony, celebrated feminist icon, was a racist. But, you may argue, she helped improve women’s standing in society! cheap canada goose uk Yes, that’s true. She helped improve the social standing of white women.
