The mayor of São Paulo, after giving it much thought, we think, decided this past week not to sign the ignominious bill (the one that gave straights their Day in the calendar) into law and things get back to what they used to be prior to this inanity coming to light. Phew! That's in less than ten days.
He is quoted as saying that it makes sense that women, blacks and other racial minorities who have suffered brutality and abuse have a red letter day in the calendar for it reminds us of "tolerance and peace."
Activists and the world say "Thank you, Mr Mayor, for you have done a good deed."
So do we!
