Well Hello There Caitlyn

Normally I try not to express my opinions on certain topics, no because I don’t have one, but because I hate getting into arguments that won’t have any actual conclusion, and because I tend to think most people are stupid, so I tend to listen to others and stay quiet, let them ramble about whatever nonsense they believe is right, and then carry on without them knowing if I agree or not.

 But with Caitlyn Jenner taking over the world yesterday I could not stay silent. I don’t personally know her, but I couldn’t be happier for her, that she found who she is after all this time and that she is lucky enough to let the world know. Most people don’t have that opportunity and have to hide who they really are their whole life.

I hurts my soul to see people close to me, who I love, respect and hold to high standards be so closed-minded and full of hate towards something that they probably do not understand, because they have never been in a situation even close to similar to this, they have been who they are their entire life, they know this and they are comfortable with themselves, they have family that have support them through good and bad times, they have accomplished many wonderful things and have many opportunities in life that most people will never have.

You would think this type of people, does that have studied, travel, been in touch with different cultures and people, would be the ones to have an open mind and heart; it is surprising to see that is totally the opposite. Does educated, well read and “rounded” are the ones “hating”, for lack of a better word, on this woman who has finally found herself.

It is easy to assume that she is doing all this for publicity and money, based on the fact that she has been so open with her transition. We have to keep in mind that everyone copes in different ways, a person that has lived all of her life in the public eye, with us watching her every moved, would have a hard time trying to hide something as big as a total sex change, so what better way to deal with it than by doing it in the open and without any reservation? In a way is healthier for her to deal with this as she would deal with every other aspect of her life. It is her way of coping!!!!

If you were not in the public eye and you’ll had to go through a big change in your life, you would probably cope in a different way, probably by only telling your family or friends, by escaping to Paris and doing it all in secret, but you would do it your way, and that’s one of the biggest points here, everyone is different!

If you don’t understand something don’t hate on it, try to understand and learn about it, try and be kind to your human brothers and sisters that are just trying to find their place in the world, just like you probably already found yours. If you don’t want to learn or be associated with what you don’t understand, don’t like or don’t agree with, it is ok too, but don’t go around putting down others simply because your views on the world don’t match, be better than that.

She is not hurting anyone by being who she is, and she is setting a great example for those who struggle to find themselves because they are afraid of what others might think or say. Personally I applaud her, and I wish her nothing but the best in life!

I don’t really like rancheras

Everyone up and writing about the New Year and how we all wish each other love, peace, hope, etc., but I have to take a second to rant just a little. Why am I ranting you may ask, it’s a new year I should be in a happier mood, and I am not get me wrong, but if I hear one more person act all surprise when they hear me singing or saying that I like country music I will punch them in the face.

So because I am Hispanic I am only supposed to like rancheras ? To be honest I don’t even think I know how rancheras sound, ok that’s a lie I do know, but that type music is not even from my country, if you think this way you’re basically saying all Hispanics are Mexicans, and I’m guessing we all work construction and eat tacos for dinner. I don’t understand why people are so surprise when I mention Blake Shelton’s name, is country music only limited to white people or something?? I guess I shouldn’t listen to Kanye West neither because it seems he would exclusivity be reserved for black people ears. I mean I get it, stereotypes are funny 99% of the time, I am one that laughs at this type of jokes, but that is what they are jokes, when you seriously and honestly believe I should not know country music based on the fact that I was not born and raised in this country I wish I could punch you in the face and make you learn a thing or two.

It is surprising the amount of times this has happened to me since I moved to Louisiana, I use the country music example because I was just in a situation like this morning, but I get people asking me really weird and stupid questions all the time, like “Do you have cars and planes in the DR? “How did you get to the US, like did you use a boat or something?” or “OMG there’s internet in your country?” , first of all is DR no The DR, and yes we are a “third world country ” but in this times and with all the advances humanity has done in every aspect of life I find it incredible for people, that have finished school and are somewhat educated, to think this way. I honestly don’t even know what to think, is the majority of the state stupid, ignorant to other cultures or just racist? I understand that there is not a big hispanic population here like there is in New York or Miami and that knowledge of other culture might be limited, but there is this thing called the Internet and you can use it to learn new things, you can also find really funny videos of cats and dogs being extra cute, it is great.

Is the future of this country in the hands of this people? I really hope no and that all these encounters are just isolated coincidences and the rest and majority of the country is well-rounded and informed. This is a great country, I love it as if it was mines and it would hurt to see it lose its greatness just because this growing and future generations choose to be ignorant.

Ok rant over, feel free to like, comment or share!!!
