Some of us actually like hoop-earrings and tight-fitting leopard-print skirts. Some of us are hardworking maids. Some of us are highly educated.

Some of us are sexually assertive. Some of us don't like sex at all. Like everyone else, we're human beings with myriad complex experiences, desires and identities. Some may argue that it's only TV, so why make such a fuss? Inevitably, exposure to these kinds of roles will influence real life.

Because we come from such hot exotic climes, Latinas and black women please note that some Latinas are also black are expected to want sex around the clock.

Doesn't matter when or where, we just can't help ourselves! Lifetime's "Devious Maids" has been justifiably eviscerated left and right for that very reason. The way they managed to cram so many stereotypes into one show nearly makes my head explode. Dior Vargas, a Latina feminist activist, has seen this expectation play out in her professional life.

When all the men she worked with began hitting on her, she felt it was because they assumed she was promiscuous. She says it's even worse for her sister.

Latinas are becoming more educated and empowered than ever, yet this stereotype is still prevalent. Why is it then that the late Lupe Ontiveros had to play a maid more than times?

We're straight and ultra-feminine. Nearly all the Latinas in the media dress latina submissive a way that is very conventionally feminine — high heels, makeup, hoop earrings, etc. There is nothing wrong with expressing femininity in this way, but this assumption can be a burden for Latinas who choose not to look this way.
