MY THOUGHTS ON LA VIRGEN DE GUADALUPE MEMES

Disclaimer: Don’t come for me. This is just my opinion.

But, I actually think most of the memes that have come out since drag race about La Virgen De Guadalupe are kinda disrespectful to people of faith. Like, to a lot of people, this is not a joke. Maybe it’s just the fact that I’ve been to Catholic school my whole life and live in a state where that particular vision of Mary is our patron saint, but I just think that the jokes are a bit insensitive. I just don’t think anyone would make fun of something like this if Valentina was of any other religion. So if you’d like to know more about this saint, message me because her story is actually really cool.
