Girls just want to have guns… more than jobs
Now this is interesting. Lilia Varenka Torrealba Lecuona until today had a rather cushy job with the Federal District government as “directora de Coordinación, Apoyo y Supervisión de la Subsecretaría de Gobierno” (i.e., the sub-secretary’s appointment manager and events coordinator) when her facebook photos were splashed across the pages of Reforma and other Mexican dailies.
What’s interesting is the different attitude towards firearms taken here than what you’d find in the U.S. Torrealba was obviously mugging for the camera, and posting the photos, captioned “One of my other passions”, might not be taken seriously in the U.S. (and in some places, might get drafted as a candidate for political office), but it is definitely taken as an extremely serious matter here.
Ms. Torrealba’s defenders (and there are a few) claim her forced resignation was sexist. Nah… never mind that this photo was taken in a police official’s office… you don’t mess around with tools you’re not supposed to be using. Those aren’t toys, and if this was meant to be cute, or funny, nobody’s laughing.
