I'm pretty sure a better translation, linguistically and culturally, would be 'blonde'. Traditionally "rubia" is blonde, and guera and rubia were interchangeable. Later, guera was expanded to light-skinned girls of any hair color, but the cultural implication remained pretty much the same. The "hot blonde" checking you out.

I try not to buy giant corporations products anyway because of that reason alone, even if it costs more. greed.

It is pronounced "wheda". Here is the english meaning I have found:


It is a dimunitive name, given out of affection or familiarity, not out of disrespect. other types of names include: Flaco (skinny man), Gorda (fat female), Gordita (little fat female), Guera (white woman), Guapo (handsome man), Rubia (blonde woman)

guera doesn't mean white *****. it is more appropriately translated as white lady. guera has been used to describe lighter-skinned mexicans as well. the mexicans used terms like gorda (fat lady) as nicknames that reflect an obvious characteristic of somebody. they dont find it offensive at all. and i dont see why "better than the light-skinned lady looking at you" should offend anyone. i can understand how a little misinformation could create conflict, though. educate yourself first, be angry, if you still need to be, second.

The same people who get mad about a statement like this, are the ones who should be flattered.

It is amazing how light skinned women are portrayed as goddesses in Mexico (and really around the globe).

Caucasians girls in America have no idea, just how put on a pedestal they are. Personally I think Darker Latin girls are very beautiful, but you rarely see them on TV.
