Excuse me if I’m not worried about how light-skinned mestiz@s feel about being grouped together with white mexican@s when I’m trying to talk about anti-blackness in Mexico.
i don’t know what this is about. when have i used the term white skin latin@s??? when have i ever implied latin@ is a race?
was this an attempt to educate me? if so, it is a failed one.
saying light-skinned latin@s helps me get across the fact that light-skinned latin@s who are not 100% white are still in fact light-skinned.
I think it’s very important for people to understand that I can’t legally drink in the EEUU for a couple more months.
I’m guessing this is this referring to her use of a certain transmisogynistic slur on Arsenio Hall and the not-so-apologetic apology she issued on twitter.
Correct me if there is more she’s said/done.
I have never entertained the notion that I can speak for trans people (transwomen in particular in this case)
So I’m not sure what the point of this message was.
If it was to inform me that she fucked up when it came to treating transwomen with respect and not tossing around slurs for cheap jokes, then be assured that I know. There is no excuse for what she did.
There are people who are inspired by her and she’s certainly very talented. Hopefully, she knows better and is trying to be better.
