Better a wife beater than a homo?

The government of Chile wants to reduce incidents of domestic abuse, a noble cause indeed. So like our governments do with a whole bunch of causes, they are doing an ad campaign. That's where it all goes wrong...

They are making the wife beaters feel bad by calling them fags. Yep, that is the way to go. So when's the anti-homophobia campaign gonna kick in, Chile assholes?

That is truly bizarre. Maybe designed by a Chilean cousin of Palin?

Yes, very bizarre, but given the centrality of machismo in Latino culture possibly quite effective.

Good way to lessen one problem by causing another. If it even works. Bravo. Truly. And those who beat fags are... who exactly?

Oh dear God. Seriously?

This is all kind of wrong. We do hair on the women not beat them.

People do not get things do they. it is going to make it worse.

Typically I think, "Damn... some people still have such a long way to go." Rarely do I think, "Damn... some ENTIRE COUNTRIES still have such a long way to go." Sad and stupid.

It's amazing to me that in the planning stages of this ad campaign no one said, "Hey guys, maybe this is a bad idea."

I agree with both the "WTF" and they more pragmatic, hey, along the way of designing and implementing this campaign, wasnt there a voice somewhere who said "Hey, what the fuck are we doing here???"

I know, holy crap huh! Apparently is very real, is being reported on, and not disavowed or disputed. Strange scary world some days.
