Ricardo Arjona downplays inclusive language: it’s better to encourage respect

Guatemalan singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona does not ride the wave in defense of an inclusive language. On the contrary, he downplays it, as he did at a concert in Asunción, Paraguay, where he emphasized that the most important thing is respect.

“A lot has happened since we didn’t see each other. There were many phenomena, including the worst. They locked us up for two years, they put masks on us, they left us with nothing to do with cellphones in hand, social networks and lots of free time and we spoiled everything. Then vulgar things appeared, 32 genres appeared like if it was important to add genres and not respect what you want to be,” said Arjona.

He then added, “People roaming the streets trying to convert vowels into words, and I had to say hello to everyone tonight for example. That’s a lot of wasted free time.”

She also attacked the women’s struggle, emphasizing: “Later people came out on the streets and said that women should win just like men, and I said why can’t they win more?

Arjona was already in the news with a controversial comment during one of the concerts he was offering in Argentina.

“We men have lost the territory we have gained, because we behave badly. In the mid ’90s all that male power went away, right? We lost everything,” the singer said as an introduction to “Nude,” one of his songs.

On the subject, he gushed humorously: “Today, long after pets, men are at the bottom of society. You can say anything you can think of about a man and nothing will happen to you.”

According to her, “last week I heard a lady on an important program Branding men as “brainless cavemen.” and they applauded her, she kept her job. If you tell a pet, they take it away from you. I think we deserve certain things, but it’s time to smooth things over. Because the only thing we have today is a difficulty in approaching us, and that doesn’t suit anyone”.

Argentinian newspaper La Nación reported that Arjona reflects the difficulties he envisions for a man today to face when trying to “capture” a woman through a story: “In the female universe there are two kinds of men: who they like and who don’t. How do we know which group we belong to? You’re in a bowling alley, you sit down and there comes a guy who is very fortunate to be the one you like, weaves his way through the crowd and comes at you with a typical phrase, cheesy and manly , and says, “Hello, good night. I want to tell her I haven’t slept in three nights and I’ve been thinking about the 25 ways I could think of to get you out of that dress.

And she addressed two different situations: “When she’s one of those that you like, she says, ‘Can I have a moment?’, a wild man but tender. I leave her, I go with him. But if he’s from the group you don’t like, use the same speech to tell him, ‘Can I have a moment?’ And call 911.”

In this sense, the artist questioned: “How does the poor boy know which group he belongs to? That’s how we live today.” Following that release, the Tell Me No performer brought the situation down to earth and asked his fans, “How do I, as a composer, get the courage back to say things like ‘No, it’s no’ from the rooftops? sexual aberration but I like to see you walking around in leather pants,” he concluded.
