On Wonder Woman

When I was little I thought Linda Jean Córdova Carter (aka Linda Carter) was the most beautiful woman in the world. I proudly told my preschool teacher that she resembled my mom. tiffdjones over has dedicated a post to Linda (very apropos), no wonder i loved wonder woman, and speaks to her (our) biracialness and the reverse racism of being a fair skinned Latina with a non-Hispanic last name.



Linda deserves to be honored for being a such a great role model, especially for young women.

  1. I saw my first full Wonder Woman episode and it was dubbed in Spanish. How cool is that? Since then I've been rocking a Wonder Woman shirt around the DF. Don't forget about the other awesome, bi-cultural heroine of the 70's, Linda Rondstadt. Her Mariachi album is a classic.
