Latin women often play the role of the seductress, like Roselyn Sanchez in Rush Hour II and Marisa Tomei (an Italian-American actress from Brooklyn) in The Perez Family. The seductive, sexy Latinas entice men. This stereotype often crosses into dangerous territory when high school-aged Latinas are showcased with the same promiscuity, such as Naya Rivera’s Santana Lopez or Francia Raisa’s Adrian Lee. Jack Thomas, a writer for Tu Vez, wrote “When white women are prostitutes, they are usually the “hooker with a heart of gold” like in Pretty Woman. When a Latina is a whore, she’s just a slut.” The “La Virgen y La Puta” stereotype is especially idiotic when Hollywood tries to convince its viewers that Latinas happen to be both fiery and uncontrollable while also fitting to be a nanny or maid.
In the second trope we’ll examine, the “La Virgen/the Virgin,” the poor little Latina is trapped in the submissive role of a housekeeper or nanny and is usually rescued by a kind-hearted white man. For an example, look at Jennifer Lopez in Maid in Manhattan or Maria from America’s favorite musical West Side Story. Maria is the innocent yet submissive Puerto Rican girl who is swept off her feet by a charming white man. The story writes itself. Yet, with regards to the “La Puta/the Whore” part of the paradox, do a quick Google search of the words “Latin woman” and you’ll find yourself amidst hundreds of links taking you to kinky, exotic porn or dating sites to find the perfectly enticing Latin woman for you.
Currently Hollywood only has two roles for Latinas: the slut and the maid
Sure thing. :)
The Curator is played by Tom Baker, who was the Fourth Doctor. Any fans of Classic Who were already sobbing about that. *sheepishly raises hand*
But it only gets better.
Just before the Curator appears, Eleven is speculating about retirement. He loves the peace of the Under Gallery, and says he could be the Curator of this place. And the Curator tells him that he really thinks he might.
Because the Curator is the Doctor. A very, very old Doctor, who has laid down his old name and chosen another for retirement.
The Curator knows of Gallifrey, he found the painting in ‘remarkable circumstances’, he knows what Eleven will do next and advises him to do it. And you can see the joy in his eyes to see his younger self at a major turning point in his life. The day his younger self saved their home.
People who believe the Curator can’t be the Doctor bring up regeneration. “…and in days to come, you might find yourself revisiting a few [faces]- but just the old favorites.”— how can this line make sense?
There are many instances of Time Lords (and Ladies) having control over their appearance. Romana went through several changes to find the right body, finally settling on the one she had originally- a copy of a character from an earlier adventure. (This is why I en’t bovvered about Capaldi. For heaven’s sake, Five appeared earlier, too.)
Bringing things back: what I love most about the scene is that… it’s an ending. When Doctor Who was cancelled in the 90’s, there was nothing- it just stopped. But now, no matter how Doctor Who ends, THIS is how it will end. The Doctor’s retirement, looking after the Gallery in the appointment given to him by Elizabeth the First, and spending the rest of his years in peace.
And, as a final side note, here’s some tagging I did on it : http://nonlinear-nonsubjective.tumblr.com/post/68569010444
….sorry my explanation was a bit wayward, but I got most of the points, I think.
