Damares Alves, Brazil's new minister of women, family, and human rights, has a message for the country's children.
"Attention, attention! It's a new era in Brazil: Boys wear blue and girls wear pink!" the lawyer and evangelical pastor turned government official tweeted. And in her inaugural speech, she declared, "A girl will be a princess and a boy will be a prince."
Yeah, that means you, sweetie.
It's not exactly the wildest thing that's been done in the (checks watch) three days that Jair Bolsonaro has been president.
Within a day of taking office, the far-right president removed LGBT people as a category protected under human rights law, put a general in charge of keeping tabs on international organizations and NGOs, and gave the Agriculture Ministry — which the Washington Post notes is dominated by the big agriculture lobby — "control over areas reserved for Brazil’s indigenous peoples and the descendants of former slaves."
