Just a Latina college student in New York City trying to get over my infatuations with dead men, namely Hemingway, Carravaggio, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (I know he's still alive) and Aimé Césaire. Stay here for awhile, I can promise some sort of entertainment
"Your Spanish accent is so South American, so exotic." I’m not a tropical fish to be called exotic. The way I speak Spanish is simply the way I speak my mother language, not for you to find it amusing and exotic.
"Oh, I thought you said you had gotten a tattoo. I was worried you might have joined a gang or something!" HA HA VERY FUNNY MOTHERFUCKER. YEAH I GET IT. LATINOS HAVE MARAS. HILARIOUS.
"Your brothers look like gang members. Just kidding." See above
"I’ve noticed that old Latina women have big asses.*smug laugh*" Why do YOU get to comment on my people’s bodies? FUCK.OFF.
"Hola, chiquita" *insert any Western accent here*. Don’t. Just Don’t. You don’t get to call me names. Especially names that sound even more patronizing coming from a man who is nothing to me and is so separated from my culture.
"You have an account at X bank? OH MAN THAT IS SO SPANISH." Just what the fuck. How does my choice of a BANK fit your idiotic idea of culture? And PLEASE stop equating Latin American to Spanish. Yes, we were colonized by them but that’s as far as it goes. Do NOT assume we’re one in the same because they were our colonial masters long ago. It’s fucking offensive.
also stop with the “what kind of spanish are you?” and “wow you’re too pale/dark to be latinx” bullshit
