and don't even get me started on cos

Why do you choose to stan Latinas who are not as Latinas and are more American than anything? Neither Sara or Lana speak Spanish and they both grew up in America. I don't think they're good enough representation for Latinos, especially considering Lana looks pretty white and privileges from that.

I’m choosing to answer this because it’s a pretty interesting (albeit racist and gross) ask. Like, where do you even get the idea that you get to decide if they’re good enough representation for other people? And the fact that they don’t speak Spanish fluenty doesn’t make them any less Latinas than if they spoke perfectly? (Sara does speak fluently, but whatever). It’s a pretty common thing for second generation kids to not speak Spanish, especially when you take into consideration how often our accent is mocked or looked down on. Hell, both my parents are Japanese and I don’t speak Japanese as fluently as they’d like, but that doesn’t mean I’m not Japanese? It’s hard when you grow up in a different country where you don’t get to practice or when you have to work on your accent. And yes, they both grew in the USA, but that doesn’t mean they’re less Latinx. 

As for Lana looking white? You do know that not all Latinx look alike right? There’s no cutout model of what a Latinx person looks like, that’s not how it works. Hollywood gives you a stereotype, but that’s not accurate. There’s no one look, there’s white and black and asian and brown Latinx people. And Lana has talked about how difficult it was for her at first to get roles because she didn’t look Latina enough, because Hollywood searches for people who look and sound a certain way, because she didn’t fit into that stereotypical image. 

The fact is that they have both been targets to racist shit said by fandom and held to a higher standard than their white co-stars.  They identify as Latinx, proudly so, and you should respect that. There’s no such thing as not being Latina enough.

  • Lily: I'm sorry. I just... I don't like Peter...
  • James: What? Why?
  • Lily: Peter stares at my boobs when we talk. He starts at my face, but then somewhere along the way, he gets distracted and ends up on my boobs. I love guys - I love them. But I've tried my whole life to avoid the boob-staring guy. Biology even helped me by making me scary to most men. But now, one of my boyfriend's best friend is that guy. And I don't think that I need to apologize for the fact that the only person I want staring at my boobs is you.
  • James: Boobs... really, you're making this about boobs?
  • Lily: He stares at them.
  • James: 'Cos they're good boobs!
