Season Two Diary No. 19

Series Finale Part 2 of 2

My voice slightly trembling, from the guilt of the pain I was about to cause him, I replied:

“I can’t accept your offer. I’ve worked too hard for the life I have—My career, my house, my freedom—I’m sorry, but I can’t go back to depending on a man.”

I searched his eyes desperately hoping to see understanding in them, but it wasn’t there. Instead I saw disbelief and hurt. …

Ride or Die Chick

Season Two Diary No 18

The first words out of Cristiano’s mouth were, “Is it mine?”

His ex-girlfriend shook her head yes and shared she was 7 months pregnant so it had to be his. I quickly did the math in my head, and I was relieved to realize that at seven months, the baby would have been conceived before Cristiano and I, even met.

Cristiano then demanded, accusingly, “How can you be so sure it’s mine?”

When she …

Still recuperating from the scare, my emotions got the best of me, and instead of responding to his question, I placed one hand on my heart and shouted, “Don’t scare me like that! I thought it was a ring!”

Finally clear of the dance floor—and my admirers—I was free to relax. I found a seat at the very edge the bar and slid off my heels. The bartender neared me and asked what I would like.  I ordered a soda and as I waited for it to arrive, my thoughts turned to Cristiano.

Hair flowing in the wind, 90s Chicano hip hop booming and a beautiful convertible lowrider, we were the poster children for a lowrider magazine photo shoot.  Cristiano at the wheel, me in the passenger seat and Lupe and Adolfo in the back, we sang along to an NB Ridaz song and reminisced about our teenage years.

Latina, Catholic, Feminist & Proud

An open letter to those who say I cannot be Pro-Choice and Catholic:

I grew up Catholic, Mexican-American and poor.  All three of these identities shaped me into the woman I am today—a proud feminist.  That is until I marched in the Women’s March and my identities collided, forcing me to come face to face with my identity as a Catholic woman.

After the women’s March, I came across a Facebook post from a fellow Catholic woman, slamming those of us who marched, reminding us the feminist movement is Pro-Choice and not Catholic.

It’s been a rough year for Latina-Americans, from having to defend our community against the racist rhetoric of a Trump candidacy, to loosing Juan Gabriel, it’s no wonder we’re happy to say adios to 2016! But on the bright side, in Arizona, we kicked Sheriff Arpaio to the curb and, in Nevada, elected the first Latina to the U.S. Senate, Catherine Cortez Masto.
