High femme on a low budget. I enjoy crystals, muumuus, dancing naked under the full moon, talking about feminism, painting my nails, and taking things too seriously.
Also, I have great hair.
I don’t think I have rebelled against Latin@ culture. I have rebelled against those who try to make me warm tortillas for my brothers when they can warm them for themselves, I have rebelled against a patriarchal religion. I rebel against small mindedness in all ways and in every situation but those things are not an intrinsic part of latin@ culture and I will fight tooth and nail against anyone who tries to make me feel like I’m less Chican@ for not embracing the small-mindedness.
