A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:
"Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness. They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia. They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.
Mermaids do not exist.
But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish? They would have no sex life and could not bear children. Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad. And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?
Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.
At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.
We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies. We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated. Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I ?! "
To mark the start of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill student paper has a message for their university over its disciplinary system, which handles sexual assault with the seriousness of a minor infraction.
Esto ya se me escapa... no sé ni cómo calificarlo. Bueno, mientras se le aplique a TODOS, pues hasta me parece bien porque tengo entendido que en donde hay más absentismo es precisamente en los cargos públicos de alto rango. Las cámaras siempre están vacías! Seguro que nos ahorraríamos una pasta en pagarle a estos desgraciados!!!!!

The new propaganda is liberal. The new slavery is digital.
Alexandra Herazo Ferrer's insight:
"Hollywood has returned to its cold war role, led by liberals. Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning 'Argo' is the first feature film so integrated into the propaganda system that its subliminal warning of Iran's "threat" is offered as Obama is preparing, yet again, to attack Iran. That Affleck's "true story" of good-guys-vs-bad-Muslims is as much a fabrication as Obama's justification for his war plans is lost in PR-managed plaudits. As the independent critic Andrew O'Hehir points out, 'Argo' is "a propaganda movie in the truest sense, one that claims to be innocent of all ideology." That is, it debases the art of film-making to reflect an image of the power it serves.
The true story is that, for 34 years, the US foreign policy elite have seethed with revenge for the loss of the shah of Iran, their beloved tyrant, and his CIA-designed state of torture. When Iranian students occupied the US embassy in Tehran in 1979, they found a trove of incriminating documents, which revealed that an Israeli spy network was operating inside the US, stealing top scientific and military secrets. Today, the duplicitous Zionist ally - not Iran - is the one and only nuclear threat in the Middle East."
La legislatura termina en Islandia sin que se haya tramitado la reforma constitucional que nació de las protestas de la calleLos expertos hablan de "fracaso" en un proyecto citado como referencia internacional para una salida alternativa a la crisis...
El miembro del Partido Pirata de Islandia, que se presenta por primera vez a las elecciones, Smári McCarthy, ayudó a redactar los artículos sobre acceso a la información. “El Consejo solo tuvo cuatro meses para hacer el texto y luego el Parlamento tardó más de un año en trabajar la propuesta (…) que no necesita grandes cambios”, criticó.
McCarthy añadió, asimismo, otro fracaso de la cámara baja islandesa: “Sentimos que las promesas relativas a transparencia y a la apertura no se han cumplido. El partido Independiente y el Progresista -la oposición conservadora- han estado los últimos dos años bloqueando iniciativas y reformas, como la modernización de la libertad de información”.
