You’ve probably heard of “the feminine urge” meme by this point. The meme started with internet users ironically sharing stereotypical things that women are known to do, usually by referring to things that they themselves like to do.

Some examples include “the feminine urge to play dumb (strategically)” and “the feminine urge to go to target and just roam aimlessly.” Of course, the memes are supposed to be reductive and non-PC and not truly apply to every woman out there.

Over time, the memes included “the masculine urge…,” “the queer urge…” and pretty much any other sub-group of human beings that exist. It was only a matter of time before “the Latino urge…” caught on, with people sharing the very unique things they do themselves that might apply to other Latinos as well. And we have to tell you, some of these memes are hilarious.
