The following ad from Argentina speaks even more volumes about the extraordinary cultural changes afoot in Latin America. (HT Karla Dobinski) The translation is below.

"Hello, Mr. Louis."
"Hi…I have a question. When you applied to get the loan to open this beauty salon, did you have to show an ID?"
"…yeah…. "
"and on your ID, it says that you're really a male, doesn't it?"
"and they still gave you the loan?"
"well…they are the same bank that just gave me a loan to buy my new car. and…it just made me think, you know? and i came here…to apologize for treating you poorly all these years. for not knowing how to treat you. I want you to have this."

    Thanks for posting this ad. I don’t know why–maybe I’m just a sucker–but it oddly brightened my day.
