A Television Commercial From Argentina

(Special thanks to Curtis for passing this along, and for the following translation and explanation … )

The dialogue goes like this:

“Hello, Mr. Louis.”

“Hi…I have a question. When you applied to get the loan to open
this beauty salon, did you have to show an ID?”

“…yeah…. “

“and on your ID, it says that you’re really a male, doesn’t it?”


“and they still gave you the loan?”


“well…they are the same bank that just gave me a loan to save my
farm. and…it just made me think, you know? and i came here…to
apologize for treating you poorly all these years. for not knowing
how to treat you.”

The old farmer gives the transgender woman a little wooden carving that
he made of a ballerina, and says he’s sorry, and goes back to his car.
The wife waves from the car; the beauty shop owner clutches her
ballerina, and the car drives off.

They would never have such a ad in this country. Sad to say.

Thank you Stephanie Kay and Autumn Sandeen. It made me cry!
