Fighting the coup in Brazil, despite of my fears

“Don’t expect from us the silence of the cowards”, “Temer, go home”. Photo: Nunah Alle to the independent news group Mídia Ninja.

I am a very fearful person. I’m afraid of robbery, rape, accidents, the flu. I go out to jog and my heart skips a beat every time a man gets too close. I always use a seat belt, even in the back seat. I get into relationships frightened of getting my heart broken.

Campanha #SouMulherVitoriosa: post original de Ana Paula Valadão.

In the article, they praise her discreet dresses, her youth, her maiden like beauty and her skills as a mother and housewife. We feminists hated it and some people are asking: what’s wrong with that?
