Oscar de León, the Dominican Male
This storyboard does not have a description.
"Look at that little macho... [Qué] hombre" (Díaz 14).
"It's either her or me!" (Díaz 14).
"[¿]Tú ta llorando por una muchacha?" (Díaz 14).
Oscar de León, in his youth, is the stereotypical Dominican male. He has two 'girlfriends' at the same time, and, although his relationships consisted mostly of hand-holding and cheek-kissing, his actions showed promise regarding his romantic and sexual future.
Oscar's wondrous threesome, however, only lasts a week. Maritza gives him an ultimatum, exercising power over Oscar and their relationship and reversing gender roles, since Dominican males were usually the ones with the authority in relationships.
Hypatía Belicia Cabral, Oscar's mom, disappointed with his un-Dominican comportment, tells her son off for crying about a girl and punishes him for not showing the masculine indifference to girls and the emotions they evoke in him expected of Dominican men.
