They riot over soccer games, they riot over miniskirts...what's next, they riot over rotten bananas?

No, the spiders hiding in the bananas

Nah, Brazil wouldn't riot over spiders in bananas. Because that's their everyday fucking life.

Brazil is hardcore, yo.

I remember this thing. Her university had a mass exodus at the time, because no one wanted to be associated with it. Talk about PR nightmare.

I had a lot of sympathy for her at the time. A bit less now that she became a poor man's Kim Kardashian level subcelebrity.

*flicks spider off banana* Shoo!

But seriously, is there some sort of weird repressed culture in Brazil, or was that college just filled to the brim with penis otherkin?

I mean, they shouted "Let her out, professor! We want to rape her!" as a rallying cry. If that's not fucked up, I don't know what is.

No, seriously, in my college class there were a bunch of girls in miniskirts, and no one gave a flying fuck. There were probably a few peniskin among those guys, and some sort of psychological bullshit made the other students follow along.

It's Brazil. Not to stereotype or anything, but surely a miniskirt is not in any way an unusual sight?

I'm slightly appalled by the way the article claims that SHE'S the one who started the riot, rather than the rape-minded mob chasing and harassing her.

I wonder, did anyone interview the mob participants afterwards? Could they offer any explanation? Maybe it was like mass hysteria, and even they didn't understand their own behavior retrospectively.

(Title of the link: awful. I won't believe it? All right, I don't, all of them are bullshit. Actual title: better, could lose "science can't explain").

When she shunned their advances ("then I got the perfect upskirt, and that's how your mother and I met!" said nobody, ever), the situation only got worse.


Thanks Cracked, for explaining why upskirt photos are bad. They're not an effective way to find a wife. So grateful for Cracked's wisdom.

The dress in question isn't even that revealing. This is her wearing her riot inciting dress.

I don't want to be a victim blamer, but this story is so bizarre it makes me wonder if she actually did somehow start the riot on purpose.

Why on earth would any woman want to instigate a mob of rape-minded men?
