Brasilian President supports gay marriage

Why are those Latino nations so backward?

El Mundo (Spain)/AFP reports that Brasilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said in an interview on Brasilian TV that he supports gay marriage and that it's time to end the "hypocrisy" about it. (Lula, a favor de los matrimonios gays 19.09.2008)

Let's see. Spain has legalized gay marriage. Chile and Argentina have both elected female Presidents. Brasil's President endorses gay marriage.

Aren't these Latin nations supposed to be so macho and retrograde on matters of gender equality and gay rights than us enlightened, civilized, "advanced" Americans? Something in this picture doesn't quite fit ...

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
