The Associated Press reports:

Newly installed President Jair Bolsonaro targeted Brazil’s indigenous groups, descendants of slaves and the LGBT community with executive orders in the first hours of his administration, moving quickly after a campaign in which the far-right leader said he would radically overhaul many aspects of life in Latin America’s largest nation.

In removing LGBT concerns from the responsibilities of the human rights ministry, Bolsonaro did not name any agency to consider such issues. He has strongly criticized what he calls “gender-based ideology,” saying it is a threat to Brazil’s Christian values.

Damares Alves, the new human rights minister, did not discuss the LGBT order in her first address on the job, but the evangelical pastor has insisted over the years that “the Brazilian family is being threatened” by diversity policies.

Alves today said: “There will be no more ideological indoctrination of children and teenagers in Brazil.”

Brazil has seen a surge in same-sex marriages in recent weeks out of fear that Bolsonaro may try to undo the nation’s landmark 2013 ruling by the National Justice Council.

You know…

Hitler blamed Jews for Germany’s woes.

This guy blames LBGTs, aborigines, and women.

Same shit different day!

Still 2018, so this is appropriate.

TC Candler and The Independent Critics claim they have been ranking the most beautiful faces in the world since 1990. Recently, they gave the internet their most handsome male list for 2018.

According to their website, “The Independent Critics are a diverse group, led by TC Candler, who search far and wide, listening to the many millions of suggestions submitted by the public over the past couple of decades, and they then put together a list representative of the modern ideal of worldwide beauty.”

It’s hard to find more information about them. For all that I know, they might be a super secret association of the world’s most famous beauty industry moguls or… a teenage girl on her iPhone

Take a look:

I won’t lie, I’d totally do most of the panty creamers on this list, BUT… I’d totally get myself pregnant multiple times with Toni Mahfud babies.

GOODBYE OVARIES!

Without a doubt my #1!

As if the world needed any more discouraging news, last Sunday Brazil elected a pro-military fascist, Jair Bolsonaro, as their next president.

If you’re the type of person who loves scary shit on Halloween, this is the perfect news.

Bolsonaro easily defeated the uninspiring Workers’ Party candidate Fernando Haddad in the electoral runoff by a tally of 55.5% to 44.5%, with 94% of the vote tallied.

The Guardian described Bolsonaro, 63, as a “far-right, pro-gun, pro-torture populist.”

He’s also homophobic and racist. In fact, he sounds exactly like the current president of the United States, except that Bolsonaro actually served in the military that he so often praises. In other words, dude is a nightmare! 

Human Rights Watch issued a lengthy statement noting that the organization would “closely monitor the rhetoric and actions of the Bolsonaro government.”

The statement included a laundry list of some of Bolsonaro’s more troubling behavior, including:

  • Promises that he wouldn’t accept the election results unless he won.
  • Claims that he would shoot Workers Party supporters and make progressives leave the country.
  • Statements that Brazil’s military dictatorship (1964-1985) should have killed dissenters instead of only torturing them.
  • Promises to allow police to openly target suspected criminals with extrajudicial killings.
  • Comparisons of Afro-Brazilians to “cattle.”
  • Describing refugees as the “scum of the earth.”
  • Claiming he would rather his son die than be gay.
  • Telling a congresswoman he would not rape her because she is “ugly.”

Sounds like quite a bright future there, Brazil.

Perhaps this is hard to understand for a person living in a safe place like I.

But, that doesn’t make it any easier for the LGBT and indigenous people who will be killed because of his reign. Frankly, WTF Brazil!

We’re headed towards World War, aren’t we?

Ser feliz no esta de mas.

There‘s a saying that every end is a new beginning. This is what happened to Brazilian illustrator Rafael Mantesso a few years ago when he divorced his ex-wife.

She took it all and left behind aanigmn empty house with white walls and their bull terrier dog (Jimmy).

Inspired by the blank walls and his dog, Mantesso started snapping pictures of Jimmy  running around the house and this was the moment these humorous series was born.

Mantesso portrays his bull terrier in fun scenarios that are the result of the illustrations that now have almost 600k fans on Instagram. 

A dog’s love will never leave you.

Rafael is great talent, and Jimmy a beautiful dog.

My god, what did we just watch. The game of the tournament, certainly, and probably one of the best matches in recent World Cup history. All I know for sure is that Belgium beat Brazil today, 2-1, in a quarterfinal that had all the intensity, insanity, momentum-swings, and amazing plays that make this entire spectacle worth every second.

Brazil (and this is just an okay Brazil team) played great and has nothing to be ashamed of unlike Germany who finished last in their group and Argentina who have nothing but Messi and got torn apart by Croatia and France or Spain who only seem to know how to pass around a ball and went out to Russia.

Brazil can hold their head high. They might have been my favourites but is not surprising that number 3 ranked beat number 2 ranked. 

The man of the match was without a doubt Belgium’s goal keeper Thibaut Courtois.

On the other hand Uruguay got eliminated by France.

The last two South American teams are gone.

And Brazil leaves the World Cup but he leave as the recordist winner.

Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome to the EuroCup!!!

Today timeless classic is dedicated to hottest World Cup anthems over the years.
