MUCHOS PATRULLEROS


QUE TE HACES EL QUE HABLAS DE PROGRESO
SI QUERES METER A LOS MENORES PRESOS
BRINDARLE AYUDA AL BARRIO NO TE INTERESA
MUCHOS PATRULLEROS, NADA EN LA CABEZA

NINGUN PIBE NACE CHORRO Y TE LO VOY A EXPLICAR
LA NINEZ ESTA EN PELIGRO LA TENEMOS QUE SALVAR
NO EN LA CALLE EN LA ESCUELA SE TIENEN QUE QUEDAR
SI NO HAY PADRES QUE LOS CUIDEN NECESITAN UN HOGAR
AL POLICIA CORRUPTO NO LE IMPORTA MATAR
LOS JUECES POR BILLETES SE PUEDEN COMPRAR
CON LA DROGA Y LA VIOLENCIA LES GUSTA TRAFICAR
NOS TRAJERON EL PROBLEMA Y NOS QUIEREN ENCERRAR

QUE TE HACES EL QUE HABLAS DE PROGRESO
SI QUERES METER A LOS MENORES PRESOS
BRINDARLE AYUDA AL BARRIO NO TE INTERESA
MUCHOS PATRULLEROS, NADA EN LA CABEZA

QUE TE HACES EL QUE HABLAS DE PROGRESO
SI QUERES METER A LOS MENORES PRESOS
BRINDARLE AYUDA AL BARRIO NO TE INTERESA
MUCHOS PATRULLEROS, NADA EN LA CABEZA

NO TENER UN FUTURO ESO ES LA INSEGURIDAD
Y ES UN GRAVE PROBLEMA…TE LO PUSISTE A PENSAR?
O SOLAMENTE REPETIAS TODO LO QUE ESCUCHABAS
Y TUS PROPIAS DECISIONES? CUANDO LAS TOMABAS?
LA RADIO Y TELEVISION SIEMPRE CONECTADA…
QUIENES SON LOS DUENOS DE LA ANTENA QUE HIPNOTIZABA?
QUIENES SON LOS DUENOS DE LA FABRICA DE BALAS?
QUIENES NECESITAN MUERTE PARA QUE HAYA PAGA?

QUE TE HACES EL QUE HABLAS DE PROGRESO
SI QUERES METER A LOS MENORES PRESOS
BRINDARLE AYUDA AL BARRIO NO TE INTERESA
MUCHOS PATRULLEROS, NADA EN LA CABEZA

QUE TE HACES EL QUE HABLAS DE PROGRESO
SI QUERES METER A LOS MENORES PRESOS
BRINDARLE AYUDA AL BARRIO NO TE INTERESA
MUCHOS PATRULLEROS, NADA EN LA CABEZA

CONOZCO GENTE QUE HACE ESCUELAS
GENTE SOLIDARIA QUE FUE ASI TODA SU VIDA
UNA SOCIEDAD HUMANA Y MAS JUSTA ES LA SALIDA
Y CONOZCO GENTE QUE PIDE MAS POLICIA
MUCHAS CARCELES PRIVADAS VAN A EDIFICAR
Y AHI TE QUIEREN VER METIDO PARA PODER LUCRAR
CON LA MUERTE Y LA IGNORANCIA LES GUSTA TRAFICAR
NOS TRAJERON EL PROBLEMA Y NOS QUIEREN ENCERRAR.

QUE TE HACES EL QUE HABLAS DE PROGRESO
SI QUERES METER A LOS MENORES PRESOS
BRINDARLE AYUDA AL BARRIO NO TE INTERESA
MUCHOS PATRULLEROS, NADA EN LA CABEZA

AUTOR: Omar Viñole (El hombre de la vaca)
PAÍS: Argentina
CIUDAD: Buenos Aires
ESPACIO: Espacio urbano, Costanera
FECHA: 14 de Enero de 1935
Su primera excursión con la vaca es en la Avenida Costanera de Buenos Aires. Es una calurosa medianoche de domingo y Viñole se aparece con su tambera holandesa. Con la mano izquierda sostiene su bozal y con la derecha un báculo. Comienzan a congregarse los curiosos. Recibe, según las crónicas, “muestras de simpatía”. Le piden que hable. “Hermana Vaca –comienza–, es probable que no seamos comprendidos. Tampoco lo fueron Cristóbal Colón y Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, pero puedo asegurarte que el verdadero tipo de delirante sistematizado es el hombre normal que se ha incrustado en una idea fija y parasitaria de la que no puede evadirse, acerca de la sociedad y la cordura, que es tan perniciosa como cualquier otra lesión catalogada en la neuropsiquiatría”. Se retira.

REPERCUSIÓN
Al retirarse lo siguen unas 800 personas. El diario Crítica publica noticias sobre el hecho.

REFLEXIONES
En palabras de Ernesto Goldar (op. cit.), “la peripecia de Omar Viñole supone un periplo que va del panfleto al misticismo. El desenfreno –literario y físico– estalla entre 1934 y 1936. La realización del escándalo adquiere en Viñole dimensiones totales: desacralizó la literatura, agitó las ideas, denunció las instituciones. Utilizó el cuerpo para violentar el espacio en que estaba condenado a vivir. Fue procaz, genial e iconoclasta. Dijo todo lo que quería decir. […] “El hombre de la vaca” fue poeta y revolucionario. Fue objetivamente un disconforme con la “década infame” de los años treinta. He aquí su mérito. Fue lo que la sociedad de su tiempo le permitió ser. Las protestas individuales […] eran tal vez la única manifestación ideológica posible en una Argentina donde las masas no habían irrumpido todavía en la escena pública. Viñole era originalmente “popular” en 1935. Hubiera sido imposible diez años más tarde”.

REflexiones ante una discusión sobre un chiste antisemita aparecido en una pagina de facebook

 Estaba releyendo los comentarios y pensaba, si la ironía racista está dirigida a hacer denotar más lo desafortunado de la frase del tipo, para mí no es un comentario racista. si aprovecha para pegarle a los discriminados, Ahí Te Vas al Carajo. Y me llama la atención como la gente cuando quiere defenderse de una agresión de este tipo le pega a alguien más. Es comprensible, pero me parece que no es mju útil. Onda, no entiendo cómo vamos a lograr que la gente se solidarice con lo que nos lastima pegándole a otros grupos discriminados, sobre todo si somos sensibles a que no se bromee con nuestras cosas.

Los ojalá te violen, los comentarios sexistas, homofóbicos, clasistas y anti-negrosvilleros no sirven para una mierda, y de hecho, habría que considerar el privilegio relativo que uno tiene ¿no? Porque si uno sufre discriminación por ser judío, gay o armenio, pero es Blanco, rubio, de clase media y vive en Caballito y fue a una escuela privada de la gran puta, que empiece a responder usando la frase negro villero, indio, paraguayo es medio una forrada. Como que también habría que pensar un ratito qué le pasa a cada uno; qué pesa más; onda hay un negro villero que mata la policía antes de los 18 años cada tres días en la provincia de Buenos Aires. El judío tiene la memoria del genocidio que sufrieron sus antepasados, es criado con esa carga histórica, sufrió 2 atentados en los ultimos 20 años, lo discriminan Pero tiene una comunidad de contención, el 80% de la comunidad vive en el sector de mayor ingresos del país y una porción grande de la comunidad tiene acceso a estudios y una vida de clase media. No sé si sabe lo que es irse a dormir en una casilla con 18 personas. Y ESO ESTÁ PERFECTO. Pero ahí te tenés que acordar que el negro villero no tiene una comunidad de contención, el 80% de ellos vive en los sectores de menores ingresos del país, la historia oficial dice que él no vale una mierda (Léase análisis de Facundo, el Matadero, el plan de blanqueamiento de la generación del 80, lo que pasó con los negros en buenos aires y la invisibilización de la población no-blanca de la argentina, etc) las políticas de estado también y ni siquiera tiene una identidad a que aferrarse porque el colonialismo la hizo mierda. Y en el caso de las mujeres villeras, pobres, campesinas, negras y originarias, saben qué, a ellas son a las que más violan, a las que más se llevan las redes de trata, las que más se mueren por abortos clandestinos. Hagan lo que quieran, no les puedo decir qué hacer cuando se sienten heridos en su identidad, a todo el mundo le pasa y le duele y cada uno aprende como hacer con lo que le pasa.Yo no puedo pedirle a nadie que reaccione de una determinada manera. Pero sí puedo decir que cuando me dicen que los trabas son horribles y ridículos, los bisexuales son fiesteros, están locos y son sucios y peligrosos o que las tortas les falta na buena pija o alguna cosa hiriente me detengo a ver con quien estoy hablando y cual es el nivel de privilegio relativo que tiene el otro y cual el que tengo yo. Como dije no les estoy diciendo que hacer. Pero si pueden pensar un rato en lo que dije me parece que podría servir de algo.

El dolor es entendible. Pero en un punto si me encuentro con una reacción así otra vez no voy a entender nada. Vení a la zona sur por favor y veni a ver como vive mi gente y explicame de nuevo como es imperdonable que se bromee con lo que le paso a tu gente hace 70 años mientras vivis en zona norte y es justificable que vos uses un discurso que valida que el que hizo el chiste viva en la marginalidad ahora despues de que le paso masomenos lo mismo que a tu gente.

Vicky Form is a Mexican lingerie company that has recently released a campaign called ”New commandments for women.”They read,1. I shall never call another woman a whore.2. No one can convince me from not wearing a condom.3. I shall never get pregnant just to keep a man by my side.4. No one can judge me based on the number of people I’ve slept with.5. Is my responsibility to fight for my own (woman) rights.6. I will not tolerate any kind of violence towards myself.7. I will not fear or be ashamed if I find myself attracted to woman.8. It is my decision if i want to get married or not. (and don’t deserve to be judged for it.)
I find this campaign to be a ‘big deal’ for the fact that is released in Mexico. One of the most sexists, closed minded and underdeveloped countries in the world.
Not so many companies take the risk to make advertisements like this because they’re obviously going to be criticized and possibly be affected by it.Someone is taking the risk, telling the truth, and trying to get to the minds of the people. Sharing the fact that we are all human, and have to be equally treated like it, leading to a better and more developed society.Its a big step for Mexico, and for women.

“I find this campaign to be a ‘big deal’ for the fact that is released in Mexico. One of the most sexists, closed minded and underdeveloped countries in the world.”

One of the most closed-minded and underdeveloped? According to who? Compared to whom? The Wonderful World of US Imperialism?
This is a perfect example of how whiteness infiltrates online activism. Our experiences, our responses to oppression, our lives only matter when you can use it to benefit US cultural hegemony and paint “underdeveloped” countries as backwards.
What I find more fucked up is that your celebrating this campaign without even bothering to look at the women used in the campaign. These are ALL light-skinned/white Mexican women, even though it’s poor, indigenous, black, and dark-skinned Mexican women are who face the most violence.

Oh, but obviously since Mexico is “one of the most sexist, closed minded and underdeveloped countries in the world”, the mere fact that a stupid underwear campaign adresses violence against women i a HUGE DEAL, because you know, the only kind of social work that matters is the one that’s reflected in the media.
The hundreds of thousands of under-the-radar social, political and cultural groups that work in Latin America in lots of issues, from racism, sexism, classism, ableism, ecology, etc: they just don’t matter because:
a) they’re not reflected in the media of their countries. Mind you, there isn’t as many channels as in the U.S. and most of them cater to eurocentric, capitalist patriarchal views so obviously they are going to be super duper interested in promoting any kind of work that disrupts the status quo; BUT, surely, everybody believes what they see on TV, right? and if something isn’t on TV, then NOBODY knows about it. It isn’t like latinos are skeptical as fuck about media after seeing, oh,  I don’t know, their own media telling them that they were winning wars that they were losing, or that dictatorships on their countries were actually legitimate governments.  Surely, the OP with their experience of inadulterated american critical assesment of the media couldn’t expect poor, backwards latin american countries to notice social issues around them without the unspeakable aid of  this underwear campaign
b) it’s not like there has been and actually are Thousands of social organizations that succesfully involve political, cultural, artistic and social work that interact with each other over different issues without anybody having to spell “intersectionality”. Like fuck you white american feminists, come the fuck over south to meet the feminist organizations with women of different social classes and races working togheter and collaborating with organizations that focus on other stuff (now I’ll become impaired by the language barrier) like feminist organizations that aren’t native american giving visibility to native american organizations and viceversa; everybody fucking sharing everybody’s information. And no opression olympic I’ve ever witnessed, ever.  This shit has gone on for a loooong way of a time; the first shit any decent feminist will tell you is how classism and racism affects women in their country. And yesh, they’ll probably won’t use the vocabulary you’d expect as an american, and taboos will not be the same. But you know, what you say sounds problematic as fuck to them too. 
 So you’re actually ignoring that this isn’t “advanced” for a mexican campaign. It’s actually pretty shitty and SAFE, and saying obvious shit that is mostly politically correct and that will likely get the brand to look cool instead of “be(ing) criticized and possibly (…) affected by it”.
And OH, first, point 3. "I shall never get pregnant just to keep a man by my side.” FUUUUCK YOUUU. Yeah, baby, it happens all the time. It happens SO much they had to write this down. 
And, second, point 7: “I will not fear or be ashamed if I find myself attracted to woman”. It’s all it takes, really, commiting to not feel afraid or ashamed. It’s not like patriarchy makes you feel ashamed or afraid, it’s all inside of you. You have to change your mind and decide to not feel bad when the way you feel atraction and desired is frowned upon in virtually the 50% of the world, via patriarchy. Thank you Vicky Form.
