Escaramuza, which is translated to "skirmish", is a sidesaddle equestrian drill team, also known as ballet on horses. The sport is very traditional in Mexico and I have spread my Mexican traditions to Houston Texas. In mexico the rodeos are known as Charreadas. Women were never allowed to participate in the charreadas until the late 1950's. However in the Mexican revolution brave woman would follow their husbands into the Mexican revolution mounted sidesaddle and would ride around in other directions causing several confusing trails of hooves to confuse the opponent. There are teams everywhere in Texas, California, Arizona and even Colorado but Houston was thrilled when I formed the first team. I formed the first team in Houston when I was 9 years old. Me and my horse, Negrito, have been participating in this sport for the past 10 years. The team consist of 8+ girls who are dressed "adelita" who perform a routine at a full gallop while mounted sidesaddle. The routine consist of 12 exercises where we run beautiful patterns while it appears like we are going to crash into each other but right at the moment of contact we quickly turn another direction. This sport is not just a hobby, it's a lifestyle. It completely consumes your life. Its a huge commitment but the love and passion for the sport makes it all worth it. We have been blessed with the oppurtunity to annualy perform at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo every year. I love being apart of this team, i love the horses, the adrenaline rush and most of all I am sharing my traditions with everyone!!

I am an feminist !

Joss Whedon, creator of such great nerd favorites like the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, director/writer of The Avengers, and the internet sensation Doctor Horrible was asked this question: "So, why do you write these strong female characters?" He could have answered like some of us expect "Because women are half the population, and deserve to be represented in film and TV." or "because women are more than sex kittens, the love interest, or the side character." But his real answer, given in the graphic above, was absolutely perfect.

"Is a category with five Mexican feminist writers impressive, or embarrassing when compared with the 45 articles on characters in “The Simpsons”?" Females MUST start editing Wikipedia at higher rates than the paltry 9% as of 2013. Wikipedia influences our culture and human knowledge. There must be a roar of female voices.
