No more pigs!

The psychoanalytic clinic with people who were abused realizes how long they need to be able to talk.

As we are
Something like: "Pigs, your time is up!" circulated in the U.S. with allegations of abuse in Hollywood and bounced over my head as a shared expression. Today, several Argentine actresses show solidarity and seek justice by accompanying their colleagues who suffered or are suffering sexual abuse. This fact is added to the struggle for equality that the women's collective is seeking and that is growing every day in our country. The psychoanalytic clinic with people who were abused realizes the long time they need to be able to speak. If they are minors it becomes even more difficult. The perverse one knows very well what he is doing and he knows the fragility of his victim reinforcing the shame, the modesty, the guilt and also subjecting her to keep the secret. Added to this is a covert environment that somehow continues to abuse. It is clear that the perverse one must go to jail and justice will be the one who repairs and claims the integrity of the abused persons. But what about the rest of the "pigs" who daily exercise their power in labor relations, those who do not banish rejection and take revenge, the harassers, the controllers, the rude, the moralists, the women who defame or assault other women with resentment, the disqualifications, the mocking and endless forms of violence that so often happen and make many people suffer? Sting once sang "Every move you make I´ll be watching you," as if that were a way to love. Years later he understood that if it's about love, it's about freedom, neither submission nor control. And there he could write "If you love someone set them free". As a conclusion: of the Juan Darthés who is in charge of justice, we unconditionally support the Thelmas who need us so much. To the little pigs of everyday male chauvinist life in Argentina, to start doing Sting's tour because his time is also coming to an end.
