Differences Between a Puerto Rican Woman and a Nuyorican Woman

OK for those of you thatdidn't know: Puertorican means born and/or raised most of your formative years in PR. Nuyorican means born and bred in NY from Puertorican parents.

And my latino peeps KNOW that this is AAAALLL true! Enjoy!!

1. Puerto Rican women know how to make rice & beans from scratch in less than fifteen minutes.

Nuyorican women know how to reheat their mother's pot of rice & beans in 5 minutes flat.

2. Puerto Rican women can accomplish two things with one throw of their chancleta (sandals): Smack the grin off their child's face and kill the roach climbing out of the kitchen sink.

Nuyorican women can accomplish three things with one throw of their chancleta: Smack the grin off their child's face, kill the roach climbing out of the kitchen sink, and pop their man's mouth for whistling at the girls across the street and finish it all by saying "I saw that shit." This proves my theory that the chancleta skill improves with every generation.

3. Puerto Rican women have a trunk filled with costume jewelry and a small jewelry box that contains their "real" jewelry.

Nuyorican women Well where should we start?? From around the age of 10 they have five hoops in various sizes including one that has their name on it, a double heart ring, at least two name plates, one broken ankle bracelet with a heart and their initials, half of a best friend charm, an initial ring, and a name ring for each of their nicknames. After 12 they have a BIG ASS jewelry box inside a shoe box that contains their "REAL" jewelry.

4. Puerto Rican women differentiate friends with the same name by indicating who they belong to i.e.: ju know ...Maria la de Jose, Maria la de Tony, Maria la de Marcos.

Nuyorican women differentiate friends with the same name by indicating a significant body part: ya know ...Maria with the big butt, Maria with no tetas, Maria with the f--- up nose, etc...

5. When Puerto Rican women want to visit family, they fly to Puerto Rico.

When Nuyorican women want to visit family they cross the street.

6. Puerto Rican women do their own hair.

Nuyorican women go to the Dominican salon down the block.

7. Puerto Rican women call two men Papi: their husband and their father.

Nuyorican women have several Papi's: Papi Lindo, Papi Chulo, Papi Rico, Papi Suave, and Papi de Mamá.

8. Puerto Rican women's "inner circle" consists of their cousins, sister-in-laws, god sisters, and cousin-in-laws, and at least two neighbors.

Nuyorican women's "inner circle" looks more like a Latin United Nation consisting of two Dominicanas, a Colombiana, an Ecuatoriana, a Cubana, and the Morena who's dating her brother.

CHULO - could be a few things. Its general meaninng is cute. Kids use it for saying something's "cool" like: "Eso ta' chulo" = "That's cool". Also a chulo is a pimp.

CHOLO - a cholo is term implying a Hispanic male (usually of Mexican descent) that typically dresses in chinos (khahki pants), a wifebeater sleeveless teeshirt or a flannel shirt with only the top buttoned, a hairnet, or with a bandana around the forehead, usually halfway down over the eyes. Cholos often have black ink tattoos, commonly involving Catholic imagery, or calligraphy messages or family names.

Thanks for clearing that one up for me, Cutey! CauseISaidSo is right; you really should do columning. Not in fag rags like the Village Voice, but in publications of relative quality like TIME. What do you think?
