It makes me very uncomfortable when people make these types of comments or assumptions about how a Latina is meant to look! We live in a generation that is so different from the past ones. We live in a time of selfies, social media, and internet friends. The music we hear or are surrounded by is a lot more explicit, loud, and lets face it, meaningless than before. What was once a ballad is now trap. Okay this one is total BS. Clothes are such a big deal to other generations. We like to flaunt our stuff!
What is she supposed to be like? Let me tell you why. I love hearing about women who are striving for greatness and accomplishing such amazing things, and they just so happen to be Latinas as well! I love local brands or Latina-owned brands. I am in love with all the cuisine. But just as other types of women have been generalized about and stereotyped in the past, Latinas have it just as hard.
It hasn't been easy for me to create a regular social life that involves me missing a husband. Mormons are also taught "Families can be together forever. Some people really can't wait, others can, and there is nothing wrong with either of those. She said we couldn't watch it because the lady who produced the doc was formerly a professor at BYU but has since left the church, so she wouldn't have anything good to say. I was actually just talking to my husband about that the other day, at first he said that it depressed him when I said that, but really, it helps. Reading all your comments makes me feel sometimes uplifted, other times scared as hell. Anecdotes vs a much larger sample size. Forget what anyone else says or expects of you. You are not a worthy RM priesthood holder. I know this post is kind of all over the place but I had to get it out I Here's to hoping that this coming weekend he isn't on call, doesn't have to fill in, doesn't have a million charts to finish, and doesn't have any crazy medical emergencies!!.
I am clinging to it because we are back to the same old thing I must admit this last couple of years has been hard on me. I wish I know things better and would have taken a different path in life. We might not always like the way some priesthood holders act, but to disparage the priesthood is not being responsible.
