Feminism in Uruguay

EspañolChristian Grey, a categorical character of a inexplicably successful book and film series Fifty Shades of Grey, would not be so propitious if a story were set in Uruguay.

Grey, in perspective of a array of opposite feminist currents that oversee a informative omnipotence in that we are detained today, would be befuddled by the public here, maybe not even in a metaphorical sense.

Uruguay is a microcosm and so as implausible as it might seem, we also have a possess chronicle of Christian Grey. Quite some-more humble, of course, but much reduction fortunate.

It turns out that a integrate of 20-something sadomasochists finished adult in a sanatorium and after in a hands of authorities after a aroused night in a bedroom. It was not a initial time a integrate harm any other during such activity over a march of their nine-month relationship, though this one was apparently caused by a jealous dispute.

The lady suffered teenager injuries as a result, and the male was left in crutches, but a prosecutor wants to try him and let a lady go. This notwithstanding that neither of them wanted to credit the other in in rapist court.

I can not assistance though consternation if a purported feminists — not those who fought and onslaught to have equal rights and obligations, though those who pronounce of “white entrepreneur hetero-patriarchy” and “death to men” — are celebrating such a preference today.


I also consternation if these types of privileges are partial of a “new world” we live in — one that intends to drown us in a on-going wave.

This form of “justice” (lowercase and between selection marks) is repulsive. It preys on domestic correctness. To prosecute this male (who did not have a grave complaint in a Criminal Court) is zero some-more than a many finish undermining of a genuine problem like domestic violence.

I strongly believe in progress, not in progressivism. In fact, zero is serve from swell than self-proclaimed progressivism.

Injustice is not progress. Privileges are not signs of progress. Fanaticism is not estimable of progress. The aged robe of measuring with a opposite rod according to this or that context is not progress.

Only leisure and vicious research lead to progress.

The prosecutor seems to have neither.
