Of course there’s grey area and contradictions, but I would say the two most obvious are: The Hero and The Womanizer. When you get on a bus with a heavy bag, a hero will very likely offer to hold it for you. Womanizers are the reason I get anxious when getting on a bus or passing a group of guys on the street.

Sometimes its said somewhat genuinely as if it’s a compliment. The result of this recurring comment is that now I feel that all the men I encounter regard me as a princesa.
In fact many Salvadoran women are accustomed to handing their giant basket of food off to the first guy who can reach it. This may be as much a result of my colour as it is my gender.
I will admit, at first I thought I could get used to the heroes. When I do it myself I know I’ll do it right and I won’t feel indebted to anyone for having given me something. All the same, it’s not a comfortable position to be in.
