(Inspired by ‘El Rincón de Pepo y Carmelo’).

A bilingual newsletter-archive dedicated to the advancement of progressive causes everywhere.


¡No señora! La Policía y el fiscal nada tienen que buscar en la cama de ningún boricua.

Por eso creo que deben eliminarse del Código Penal las disposiciones que configuran los delitos ‘contra natura’.  Si la búsqueda del placer es equivalente al ‘pursuit of happiness’ de Jefferson, entonces, no puede ser ‘contra natura’ el comportamiento sexual fundamentado en el placer.
