It’s Hispanic Heritage Month. The National Hispanic Heritage Month website explains that this month is for “celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.” It is celebrated between September 15th and October 15th (there actually is a reason for those dates). We have a few excellent YA titles you could read in celebration. 

For information about these titles and even more titles to choose from, please visit Rich in Color.

My Women’s Studies class was postponed, so it just started today. We did introductions and there’s several men in the classroom, but one said “I figured I’d be the only guy in this class. I wanted to shake you ladies up a bit, looks like there will be a few to help me.


Just a reminder

"When a man watches a woman get fucked on screen, he sees his conquest, his fuck doll, his wet-dream inspired perfect sex object, served up for him on a silver platter, gift wrapped and ribboned, ready for his consumption. But a woman- she sees herself. She masturbates to her own objectification, commodification, dehumanization and sexual punishment. She masturbates to ‘shut up and take it, slut’. She masturbates to ‘I’ll shove two dry fingers in your cunt, that’ll teach you’. She masturbates to ‘this is what your body is for. A vessel for my cock. A meal to chew up and spit out. A body to wipe drool and semen on. This is who you are’."

I was reading about the Taino people today. In case you don’t know, they were the first group of people who had the unfortunate destiny of meeting Christopher Columbus (mass murderer & thief). He landed in their land, which is now Dominican Republic. Many Taino people were enslaved, died from diseases, murdered, etc.

Today, there still remain many people in the Greater Antilles with Taino blood and carry on the culture and traditions.

(Correct me if I got anything wrong).

Monthly reminder:::!!!!


1) You can TOTALLY appropriate other Latinxs culture.

Example: I am not Mexican. Therefore if I dressed up as a sugar skull for Halloween, I would totally be wrong for doing so. Similarly, if a Mexican person came dressed as el Diablo Cojuelo, they would be just as much of an A-hole as I would be.

2) You can TOTALLY be problematic to other latinx and make them feel objectified even if you are latinx as well.

Example: Some stranger messages me on ask.fm and goes on my personal tumblr everyday and asks about Brazil, sends me links about Brazil, asks my opinion on politicians I don’t know off, sends soccer game stats, stories about them liking Neymar, they’ve googled my name and sent me links of Brazilian names like mine, basically they’ve told me I’m the only Brazilian person they know (even though I’m half Brazilian, they keep erasing my Dominican side but whatever) and they look to me as a source on info about Brazil…. That’s creepy and not okay and just cus they’re Colombian and latinx too doesn’t make the fact that they only cate to talk to me about Brazil any less uncomfortable. (Also I never know what they’re talking about and they’ll like message me in Portuguese slang that they got offline so I’m like wtf and then they do that thing where they say ‘I’m almost more Brazilian than you!!!’ Like BYE)

3) Sometimes cultures overlap, especially latinx cultures, especially if countries are near by so please don’t attack someone for participating in their culture just because you may feel like it was yours first.

People in DR and PR eat similar foods and have similar music. We have really similar cultures and history so am I gonna get mad that someone from PR eats food that I do? No, because it’s a part of their culture as well. A lot of the foods that grow in DR grow in PR like eat it, it’s delicious. Sometimes cultures over lap. I remember there was an argument on my dash over a Mayan tradition that was celebrated in Mexico and parts is Central America and people were saying that Mayans were Mexican so the people in Central America were appropriating it but guess what? THE MAYANS LIVED IN CENTRAL AMERICA NOT JUST MEXICO!!!! And it simmered down when people realized that it wasn’t appropriative at all but seriously I can’t tell you how many times I sit at home and I’m like ‘wow the Brazilian side of my family does stuff that the Dominican side of my family does too, that’s really interesting!!’ Appropriation is WRONG and NOT OKAY but sometimes things are just similar. Latinxs have similar history. (Obviously to am extent of course lol but you get what I mean, right?)

Basically, just cus you’re latinx doesn’t mean you can’t be problematic, cus you can. So just keep that in mind.

Isnt it interesting while non black latinas are fetishized for their “fiery” tempers, black women are slandered because they are supposely angry all the time?? One is fetishized for their supposed anger, and another is put down for their supposed anger.
