Alisa Valdes Explains Why Tv Sucks

4 layered interesting Latina women of all races and backgrounds become stereotyped over sexualized cardboard cutouts. The reason people liked Dirty Girls Social Club(I read it, and liked it) was that the women were interesting characters! I don't have a Latina background, but really, we're not as stupid as TV creators believe. Our worlds are more diverse than theirs. I see young Latinas, young black women, young white women, young Asian women, young Arab women moving forward and taking charge of their futures. We write, we study math and science, we create art, we have friends and family in our lives that are as or more important than the fleeting attentions of a man. Really, get it together, tv writers!
