We’ve heard stereotypes our entire lives, finally #LatinasAreNot is telling it how it is; what we Latinas are, and what we’re not.
This hashtag is what Latinas needed, thank you Huffington Post.
We know you know we’re not all maids and babysitters.
It’s more like we’re on our way to rule the world.
And we don’t all have the same taste.

Cristina’s mom knows what’s up.

If we’re with you, that would make it like incest. Eww.

We cook just as much as the next person.
