With those tits, there’s no one listening to you

Government spokeswoman Patrícia Plaja was reported on TV-3 before and after her clip.

None of us can be over the top in anything. Being too much is still a burden for many women. We have a pass to occupy spaces that traditionally do not belong to us and that threaten to become foreign to us again. But you can’t have too much either. We must be measured in speech and strict in dress. The audience continues to exercise a space as if it were a ring for women.

On Wednesday, the Catalan government’s spokeswoman, journalist Patrícia Plaja, was doing her job more than soberly dressed on public television in Catalonia when at one point someone warned through an earphone that the clip was too long. Therefore, a poster was first put up that covered the area of ​​​​the breasts.

As she herself explained, Plaja never asked to be covered but someone thought this should be changed. She made a fix in a short pause and appeared with a few inches less cleavage, because everyone knows that if a woman shows a few inches more, she can’t be heard, only looked at.

Most of us don’t even know what Plaja was talking about: the news is that we still have to choose to cover up excessively to avoid being a distraction. The song says our boobs are creepy, and I think that’s not because they’re creepy, it’s because they continue to be a form of censorship. They consider them harmless but annoying unless used for personal pleasure or commercialization.

I’m no longer just talking about the memory that Patrícia received: “You can’t be heard like that”, I’m talking about what is happening to all of us. How many of us look in the mirror and wonder if we’re right enough? I don’t know if there are people who believe that boobs are a removable accessory or that we need to cover them up when they’re “too much” (for what or who?). It’s paradoxical how those same tits later become objects of desire and even have their own porn category. But the thing is, you can’t be desirable and have a voice. And I’m not saying that’s the situation that happened on set; What I mean is that the popular teaching is that our breasts should be hidden: neither nursing nor existing.

And what’s worse, having them and living with your existence of breasts presupposes sexualization. What are breasts for if not to watch? Come on, I’m sure that’s the anatomical benefit.

Those of us who have large chests, and that already causes back pain, don’t want them to give us a headache on top of that. How absurd to think that this situation could lead to audience distraction in relation to what he was saying. Because what was said?

I don’t know if anyone was wondering how Patrícia Plaja is feeling right now. Power is still hostile to us.

In any case, I don’t think we intend to constantly masculinize ourselves to fill the spaces we had when fighting men.
