Cruisers in the Redwoods
(Armstrong Redwoods, California - 6/2014)
Gimme a trail above the clouds; I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be.
"You’re so lucky because you’ve got the body of a Latina but you’re not really Latina, you know?” No I don’t actually since I was born in Mexico to two Mexican parents I thought I was pretty Latina.
"It’s just that you’re well spoken."
"I danced for 10 years" "Oh can you teach me how to dance to your kind of music?" "…I was trained in classical ballet." "Oh I thought all Spanish girls could dance to like cumbia." No. Just no. Also I’m Latina, not Spanish.
"But I mean you don’t act Mexican.” ???What the actual fuck on that one.
"I’m surprised you speak such good English." I moved to LA at age 5 so no shit I speak English.
"Yeah I loooove Mexican food." *points to Chipotle*
"Mexicans are all rude and obnoxious and I’m so glad I live in the US now" This one was said by a family member so that’s a whole other level
And oh so many more of these awful experiences.
P.S. I didn’t submit a picture of me making the face I usually make at these people but what can I say I just really liked this selfie…
Megumi Igarashi loves pussy.
More precisely, the 42-year-old designer loves her own pussy. Constructed from molds of Igarashi’s genitalia, the artist’s body of work includes a vagina lampshade, a vagina kayak, vagina smartphone cases, vagina dioramas, vagina toys, and more. But the Tokyo police don’t share Igarashi’s predilections, at least, not in an official capacity.
