Brazilian comedian, and host of the popular “The Noite” talk show, pointed out an inconsistency among feminists movement during this election cycle:
Translation: Proof that the feminist movement was NEVER about “empowering” women, and just about making then pawns: In stead of supporting Marina Silva – a woman – the are mobilizing for Ciro and Haddad. Why? Because a leftist straight white male ordered them to.
And the feminists on Twitter said “that’s pretty funny, but not really true…let’s talk about it.”
ACTUALLY they made up a hashtag: #CalaBocaGentili (#ShutUpGentili) which is currently trending at #1 here in Brazil.
At the risk of being accused of “mansplaining” we will translate some of the tweets here:
Translation: #ShutUpGentili we will decide about feminism!
Translation: “Take care, take care, take care you chauvinist, Latin America will be all feminist!” #ShutUpGentili (We think this is supposed to rhyme a little…ed)
Translation: Every day a straight male embarrassing himself on the internet. #ShutUpGentili
Meanwhile, Gentili is showing very little inclination to shut up.
Translation: Feminism is voting in whoever you please… (The first image shows a feminist, replying to Gentili’s tweet, saying she can vote in who she wants. The other shows is a screen snap of a feminist degrading another woman for saying she will vote for Bolsonaro)
And it doesn’t seem to be hurting him any…
Translation: “The Noite” reaches a historic level (of viewership) and leads the audience for the 50th straight time in 2018.
