    Thanks for writing this. You point out that this article expresses sympathy for a "politically correct" cause. I agree with this, but I like to go a little further:
    EVERYONE is suffering, not from the virus, but from the measures. These measures are not for people, not for health, they are just the opposite. They are for political gain, and many weak politicians are using it for their own increase in power. That is a misfortune. What about autistic people waiting for the bus every day? The most vulnerable people in our society are punished, this is not good. No sun, no physical exercise, no fresh air, no fresh food, no fun, no contact with other people, fear, anxiety, masks that are a source of bacteria, people who walk like robots on the street, these are all things that weaken the immune system and are therefore counterproductive. Measurements make you sick. Why are they doing this? For political gain, for new laws? Yes, maybe, but it doesn't help anyone. The curve is flattened now, what are you waiting for? Are they dragging him just to save his face? Maybe. People, write your story. Here.

    Not only the LGTBI collective goes through a difficult situation during the state of alarm. We have families confined in apartments of 30-40 square meters, with precarious jobs, with children who have to be educated because the schools are closed. Not only the LGTBI collective is going through a difficult situation, we have people in situations of functional diversity who have not been able to go out on the street since March 14 because they do not have a companion or because the dependency law has been standing in a drawer for years and they are not granted it. Not only the LGTBI collective is going through a difficult situation, there are older people with ridiculous, but ridiculous pensions, which do not allow them to reach the end of the month with an average quality of life or enjoy their old age, I add, possibly these people have been leaving their backs all their lives to now have almost nothing, seeing how their generation is the most affected and nothing has been done for them, those elders who built what we enjoy today, and so a sum and goes on. All my support for the LGTBI collective, I repeat, all my support for the LGTBI collective but there are more ... ..much more people who are not visible to show only the groups that make the most noise ... that does not have the honor of being called equality ... because it is not.
    Bravo city council… .bravo for identifying hard situations and showing only the face that generates the most votes… .penny…
