How Not to be an Arsehole During Carnival

David Biller, a self-proclaimed gringo and New Englander, wants to help everyone enjoy Carnival 2019.  On his Twitter profile (@DLBiller), David recently shared ‘Pequeno Manual Prático de Como Não Ser um Babaca No Carnaval’ or ‘A Small Practical Guide to Not Being an Asshole During Carnival’.  He describes the guide as a series of flyers taking aim ‘at the the sexual assault and forceful kissing that’s regretfully commonplace during Carnival.’

For non-Portuguese readers, some of the tips are loosely translated (read: Google translate) into various, colorful tips such as:

  • She did not want to accept you, that hurt a little. You are going to survive.
  • It’s just fantasies, not invitations.
  • In Portuguese, it is also know as: No.
  • She’s crazy drunk?  Offer help, do not take advantage.  Sex without consent is rape.  Rape and a crime.

We salute you, David!
