A video that recently went viral on social networks shows a young man calling several female students “pu…”, among other sexist phrases from an educational center in Spain.
The Colegio Mayor Elías Ahuja, attached to the Complutense University of Madrid and managed by the order of San Agustín, immediately took action on the matter and expelled his student.
“Put…, come out of your burrows like rabbits, you are pu… nymphomaniacs, I promise you that you are all going to fuck in the capea. Come on Ahuja!” After the shout, other young people lean out and exclaim: "Let's go Ahuja!".
The case became so relevant that the Secretary of State for Equality, Ángela Rodríguez, condemned the cry. “Perhaps sex education would have warned them that 'we are going to abuse' is a threatpart of that sexual terror that places women as sexual objects.
Nevertheless, the students who were insulted came out in defense of their classmates by assuring that these shouts are part of a tradition. "They are our boyfriends, our friends, our brothers... They are not macho," they told the Spanish media.
“We want to record our disagreement with the words collected in the videos broadcast, totally inappropriate and disrespectful. Nevertheless, a viralized video without understanding its context is easy to misunderstand”, they added.
"Despite the gravity of his words, It is a traditional practice among colleges, from which an impression of hatred and machismo has been created that could not be further from reality.”, quotes the letter.
They made it clear that they have “a very good relationship, we share friendships with many of them and we know first-hand their values and principles, none of them with the intention of making a misogynistic speech, much less denigrating us as women”.
The response of the students further polarized the fact, since some point out that it is a tradition among young people, while others considered that these manifestations are not appropriate.
