This was funny and sad and awesome and I reaaaally hope that whoever comes after Jia and Emma continues to post this kind of content.
this was lovely and made my wish my dad was less of a fuck up. (don't feel guilty, I wish this once a day)
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)
Hey, I always read your lists even if I don't reply.
Good things: my cousin came to town and we just had lunch and she met my boyfriend. I went out with friends twice this week and bindge- watched Call the Midwife.
Jia, Emma, the past few weeks have been really good Hairpin weeks. I just wanted to say that too :)
wow, "What We Have Going for Us" is one of my favorite pieces on The Hairpin ever, and I just read that it was yours too. This was also really good and beautiful and hard. Thanks for sharing-
so happy to see arabelle's byline! OK, now I'll go read it.
Hairpin, you're killing it these days! This was wonderful.
@Mariajoseh thank you for writing this! I found it very interesting because some aspects of your experience are so different from mine, even if I'm Mexican and was raised catholic, but "la madre, la virgen, y la puta"? Oh, yes. Every Mexican woman has to deal with that.
@up cubed I'm Mexican and very white, I've been called güerita all my life. I just had never heard o read the term weta with a "t", but maybe it's more a chicano thing.
This was great, The Hairpin's really good today!
But pleaseee, the typo in the title me está matando. Should be "Malinche" and, as someone said on Facebook, I think it should be "wera" and not "weta".
YES. THIS. THE END.
