  Alaqua Fry: Severed and Sexy works

 on deviantART

Alaqua Fry is a nocturnal ninteen year old artist and illustrator. She says “Alaqua” is Cherokee Indian for Sweet Gum Tree. Alaqua’s self proclaimed love for nudity is represented in this series of sliced and diced women. Without allowing these works to become gruesome, she appeals to our general love of nudies but creates intrigue with a little blood and gore.

"We are used to ignoring our own bodies. “These carrots are too spicy” we complained as a child, only to be told no, they were sweet, that the music wasn’t too loud, nobody can hear lights, what you are experiencing is invalid. We heard: you are invalid. You do not experience the world the same way as everyone else, and therefore, your experience is wrong. You learn to ignore the ever-present pain because nothing can be done about it, but then you have a kidney infection and others get mad at you for not noticing sooner. But why should you trust your body when it is always wrong?"

Hey guys! So for those of you who don’t know, I’ve been having a lot of trouble finding a job so I have no source of income at the moment and with me going to college next month, it’s a bit of a problem. I am still job hunting but odds are I won’t get anything I apply for since I have less than a month before I leave. So anyway, I decided to start an online store called Social Discourtesy: ProfoNationwhich is a play on the word “profonation” which means the theft of something sacred. I named the store that since in my country, the USA, cultures and identities are usually stolen and/or demeaned and when it happens, it is we have to be courteous and remain quiet. 

The shirts I am selling are kind of tongue-in-cheek phrases that underrepresented people hear on a regular basis and also little jabs at the privileged (like the “Boys Drool” and “White Tears” t-shirt) These are only 9 out of 13 products and I hope to add some more in the future. The shirts are unisex so you can make crop tops, cut the sleeves, gift them, etc! I made all these on photoshop so the images do belong to me. Don’t worry, the website hosting my store is legit and is a lot like Society 6 and Etsy.

If you can’t purchase anything, which I understand completely, it’d mean the world to me if you could reblog this! If you buy anything please let me know, I’ll promo you or something, it’ll mean a lot!!!

The hairdresser sighed, slamming down the shears.
“You didn’t tell me you had Hydras.”
“I don’t!” the Medusa promised..
“You have Hydras, Deliah, not snakes.”
The woman moaned and put her head in her hands, the stumpy, decapitated “snakes” growing back, now with two heads where there were one.
“You’ve got to go to a special hairdresser.”
“I just want a few less snakes!”
“You don’t have snakes, you’ve got Hydras. Is your Mother a Hydra?”
“My mother is a Naga, thanks.”
“I’m not saying it to be racist, I don’t have an issue with Hydras. My best friend is a Hydra.”
“…do you have any proof? Do you have a photo?”
The hairdresser Medusa shrugged, her frenzy of yellow snakes twisting themselves up into a hissy mohawk, then falling.
“Who do you recommend?”
“Any of the ladies at Heracles can hook you up. They’ve got special shears.” her snakes french braided themselves, then let themselves go, swirling into an up-do.
Deliah’s Hydras, her tiny Hydras, roared and spit some fire.
“Oh shit!” the Medusa said, backing up. “I’d get there right away!”
“Are they not supposed to do that?”
“Look honey… I do snakes and I do hair and sometimes I do Harpy Acrylics, okay? I am not qualified.”
Deliah got up, pouting. “I’m sorry Kida.”
“Mm hm.” the Medusa said, rounding her customer cautiously as the Hydras kept shooting fire. “Maybe they’re really dragons!”
Deliah dug in her purse. “Here, let me give you a tip.” She held out some bills and before Kida could grab them, the Hydra set them on fire.
They looked at each other and Deliah just left.
She had to get to Heracles right away.

[image text] Its was a very hot day when Eduarda wore shorts at school. The teacher told her never to dress like that again, because the boys got distracted during class. Eduarda, It’s not your job to make other people behave with decency and respect. You should dress how you feel comfortable!

A View From The Border: Signs From A Surprising Rally In Texas

MCALLEN, TX — At least 60 advocates braved sauna-like conditions near the Texas border last Saturday to rally across the street from the McAllen Border Patrol Station, showing their support for the influx of unaccompanied Latin American children being apprehended there.

About 57,000 children, mostly from Central America, have been detained this fiscal year by Border Patrol agents, many in Texas’s Rio Grand Valley towns, like McAllen. Studies show that — at least since 2009 — children have been leaving the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala in droves because of increasing violence and grinding poverty, taking dangerous journeys to the U.S. to seek refuge.

The rally, which was also an interfaith prayer vigil, was meant to counter hundreds of planned “anti-amnesty” protests across the country over the Obama administration’s handling of the surge. Only three people showed up nearby as part of the national anti-immigrant protests. They said they expected others to arrive, but also speculated they may have “gotten the wrong address.”

Attendees at the rally in support of the children brought messages of love, compassion, and sympathy for children for whom they feared a return to Latin America could mean certain death.

Some alluded to the tragic maltreatment of minors crossing the border, such as incidents where protestors have berated children as they are bused to processing centers.

The vigil included representatives from several religious traditions, including Catholics, Unitarians, Presbyterians, and Muslims. Faith groups have been at the forefront of efforts to offer relief to the unaccompanied minors, and Pope Francis recently called for the international community to work together to address the crisis. A regional atheist group was also present at the rally to express support for the kids.

The Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency (HUMANE) Act, recently introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), seeks to expedite the process of trying unaccompanied minors by making the federal government deport Central American children just as quickly as they already do with Mexican children. However, the act would deny many of these children the fair trial they deserve, and would probably only hurt those it claims to protect.

Some 2,000 people have died trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border over the past 10 years. That number could increase as more and more Central Americans flee horrific violence and poverty in their home countries.
