Yet my head hasn’t exploded
I don’t know how far this news made it, but in July 14th Argentina’s senate finally voted to legalize same sex marriage. And boy, did we celebrate. After the celebration, we talked about it during dinner with one of my uncles. I don’t watch much tv, so when my dad and my uncle started talking about something a “national celebrity” had said, I had to ask… I had to ask.
Apparently this woman, who hosts a show where some guests and her eat lunch, invited gay celebrities. They discussed the subject and all of a sudden she said: “I’m going to ask you a very… difficult question. Please don’t feel offended.” She said this to a fashion designer. I’m going to paraphrase because the monstrosity of what she said doesn’t allow me to quote. She asked whether he [the designer] was scared about gay couples being able to adopt children… because they could abuse them. HOW COME MY HEAD DIDN’T EXPLODE? I DON’T KNOW. A MIRACLE. Maybe because I’m not surprised about what this woman says anymore after she supported the dictatorship (never mind that her niece is a desaparecida) and after the lengths to which she’s gone to hide that her son was gay.
Despite the monstrosity she dared ask that day, she didn’t apologize immediately. AND the next day she invited more gay celebrities and asked the same question. Only the day after that she finally apologized. And she still runs a tv show. Someone please explain to me why.
