Banco Provincia incluye a una transexual en su publicidad
El Cielo Buenos Aires creó una nueva campaña para Banco Provincia compuesta por dos spots, "Fábrica", y "Don Luis y Perla".
Penso que em relação a este assunto, o último post da Lara no seu blog diz tudo o que me passa pela cabeça depois de ver este spot: "Parece mentira, mas não é. Vou deixar-vos com um anúncio publicitário de um Banco argentino em que a Transexualidade é tratada com todo o respeito e compreensão, e que tem percorrido o mundo como um exemplo a seguir.
Podem achar que estou a brincar, realmente, mas é a mais pura verdade. Num país altamente católico e em que o preconceito e a discriminação são tão grandes, é de ficar de boca aberta.
Terceiro mundo? Não. Portugal comparado com a Argentina é que se mostra um país de terceiro ou quarto mundo, de tal forma que nem sequer imagino esta publicidade a passar cá."

IRS Sued Over Sex-Change Deduction
After a tormented existence as a father, a husband, a Coast Guardsman and a construction worker, a 57-year-old suburban Boston man underwent a sex-change operation. Then she wrote off the $25,000 in medical expenses on her taxes.
But the IRS disallowed the deduction - ruling the procedure was cosmetic, not a medical necessity - in a potentially precedent-setting dispute now before the U.S. Tax Court.
