I am studying the Spanish language at a nearby community college, so I like to read Spanish for practice. I became aware of a Spanish language, conservative blog, El Opinador Compulsivo, which I have now linked in my sidebar. The writers blog in what I might call "deep" Spanish, using all the proper tenses of verbs and such, which keeps me busy thumbing through my reference texts. (Actually, I heavily rely on the excellent online resource SpanishDict.com, which is not a gay porn site in spite of its name.)
El Opinador Compulsivo publishes a lot of articles I would otherwise miss, along with very impressive photos of movie scenes -- where they get them, I do not know, but they are enjoyable to see.
Like a lot of conservative blogs, they also like to publish photos of semi-nude, beautiful women. I don't generally do that myself, but what the heck. I read the blog for the articles, y'see.
There was an interesting article there today about a 33 year old mom in Santiagao, who, with the help of her two teenage daughters, accosted a young man passing by their door. They forced him inside, made him lay down on a bed, then the mother got on top him and forced him to kiss her breasts. She demanded sex, but the young man refused, so the woman choked him until he passed out, saying "Si no me haces el amor, te mato!" which means, "If you don't make love to me, I'll kill you."
Obviously the lady hasn't learned that men don't really like overly aggressive women. She needs to employ more tact in her approach.
This is what I like about "El Opinador Compulsivo": there are some great lessons in social skills there. Among other things!
