The “ABC” headline drew disapproval and harsh criticism on social media.
Sentence to four years in prison for soccer player Santi Mina for sexual assault of a woman in June 2017 sends a message: such heinous behavior cannot be free. Despite the clarity and ease of understanding of the indicated message, not everyone is able to assimilate it and, thus, alphabet diary posted a news headline yesterday afternoon “The night that ruined Santi Mina’s career.” Fortunately, the reaction on social media gained such weight that the conservative newspaper was forced to correct the headline, but it has already been given away.
Tried and sentenced, the conclusion is stunning: what is really destroyed is the victim’s lifean attacked woman who represents severe anxiety-depressive symptoms. In silver terms, Mina’s career should give a damn about us, given that she is responsible for the daily life of a woman who is always uphill, suffering. chronic post-traumatic stress disorder. The only thing that has been destroyed is not Mina’s career, but the life of the victim he is responsible for.
The head of ABC, who, even after being corrected, tweeted keeping the essence of his nefarious and sexist information, he tortured Mina in an unbearable way. Even wanting to focus on what will happen next with a career as a football player, it was not the night that spoiled him, but he himself. Mina was the one who, that night in Mojacar, became a sexual predator who insulted a woman who directly told him not to she did not want to have any contact with him; mine was the one he thought he had the right to disrespect the victim, considering her in the service of his sexual appetite. And he was completely wrong.
An ABC tweet that retains the essence of being macho even with the title corrected.
The main problem is that we cannot say that Mina acted irrationally. He acted rationally, with a macho mentality, thinking that if a man wants sex, he gets it.Whether the woman likes it or not. “No is no” doesn’t seem to infiltrate this outdated dandruff heteropatriarchal culture, which is the same one that motivates headlines like the ABC headlines. The blaming of the night, the victimization of the aggressor, diverts attention from where he should be, namely the real and only victim of this terrible story.
Does feminism need to be hammered in again and again with this gender perspective that still doesn’t penetrate some people’s gray matter? Well, it seems, yes, and, in fact, this is evident from the same verdict of this case, which justifies Mina’s friend, also a football player David Golder. Neither the prosecution demanded punishment for him, nor the court found it punishable that he did not prevent his friend from raping a woman by putting his penis in her mouth. As surprising, unexpected and unpredictable as the aggression was, as pointed out by the prosecutor, Goldar should have reacted at the same moment when Mina entered the caravan naked, but he did not and decided to be a mere witness to the bullying in a troglodyte fellow with his friend. And yes, he was free to remain indifferent to how Mina had ruined a woman’s life.
The social media reactions that forced ABC to reform must multiply exponentially, take place on an analog level when, outside of the digital space, the aggressor apologizes, jokes, or harasses, when the behavior that needs to be banished once and for all. For this, let’s also change the educational focus and, instead of teaching our daughters to run out of dark and lonely alleyways at night, always letting them know when they get home, let’s raise our sons in a spirit of equality and respect for women.in “no means no”, in which no one has the right to insult another person and, in particular, in which being a woman, she is neither the property nor the service of a man. It is such a banality that when I read what I write, I feel stupid, but then I understand that it is necessary to say this, because I have peers who do not see this … and this is terrifying, but we do not retreat.
