Why Latino Dads never say “I love you”. A fantastic video made up of accounts from members of the site (mitu) and how fathers shy away from emotion.
What is culture? What makes a Latino Family? Consider that over time, the definition of family and values changes over time.
Below you’ll find a link to a website that presents a basic explanation of the “hispanic family hierarchy’. There’s already an issue with how the presentation is shown as it uses only the word hispanic in lieu of Latino/LatinX, in addition to presenting a structure that has many issues to it, BUT shade of some truth/relevance. Look at the graph and examine it and see where you find some truth and where you see the issues with it. We’ll start to think about this and open the discussion up to how family structures are seen here in the US and how they are quickly changing. https://www.hierarchystructure.com/hispanic-family-hierarchy/
Below you’ll find a coming out story. LGTBQ+ issues are something that are still seen as taboo in the Latino household, regardless of generation, background, legal status etc. While queer people have always existed, consider why Latinos are still apprehensive to queerness/the idea of queerness. https://www.newsweek.com/latino-coming-out-story-248449
After reading the four articles, read this one last. It introduces us to the concept of Familismo,a trait that is seen within the Latino home/family unit. When looking at the structure of families, there often is a hierarchy where individuals have their roles, and responsibilities. I have these italicized because both terms are extremely subjective and there are instances where the roles and responsibilities are positive traits, while they can also certainly be toxic/counterproductive, as we’ll see next week when we watch Real Women Have Curves. It can be considered a dual edged sword as it compliments and reinforces interpersonal connections between family members, but it also may reinforce outdated gender roles. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/life-in-the-intersection/201704/familismo
In 600 words minimum, using the 3rd person and using at least 1 article for evidence, respond to this critically:
After going though the readings, and being introduced to Familismo, I want you highlight what can be seen a positive trait, and a negative trait. You can do multiple, but will be required to provide evidence for your thinking.
