Maybe this will be moot if the country is nearing a revolution. However, I just heard from a couple of friends there currently that the protests are pretty much limited the largest towns.

Good. It's encouraging news to hear that homosexuals will be able to get help in Brazil now. Of course they will have to make that important first step an admit they have a problem.

Sounds like Brazil is moving forward and joining forces with other progressive nations that are taking a stand against the disease of homosexuality infesting most of the western world.

They should make it a capital crime for an adult to insist on posting in a forum while unable to distinguish between two, too, and to (and their, there and they're). Let's call it DUI -- Dissing while Uneducated and Idiotic.
