@clara222 has kindly offered a summary, though while in Spanish, goes through Google translate pretty well.
Better than me who can’t at all. 😮
Does anyone have a summary of the interview?
I’ll give you a summary in Spanish of what they said because I read that you understood Spanish: (I understand English but I do not speak it, we are alike haha). They start the interview talking about how important it is to normalize homosexual relationships and suddenly the interviewer says that it seems good, but that they do not do it during the children’s time, because they are very influenced and she talks about the scenes they had in the Valle’s house were for “adults”.
Barbara replies that her scenes are much softer than the other protagonists (straight couples).
They talk about people now falling in love with the person and they ask Barbara if she could fall in love with a woman. She replies that she is very much in love with her partner and that now she would not look at anyone but him. But what could it be, you never know.
They ask her how it was to kiss a woman and she responds that she was nervous but just like when it was her turn to kiss an actor, for her it is the same. But the interviewers continue to begrudge her to say that she felt something and Barbara says no and tries to get out of the uncomfortable moment in which they are getting her.
They also ask about how the boyfriend and his father saw her and Barbara responds that they saw her as normal. They also ask her if she has many gay friends and she says yes, but that it is not the same to be a friend of someone gay than to live it and that thanks to this story she has realized what a homosexual person lives.
Thanks so much for this, although we aren’t the same, I can’t understand anything, you’re far ahead of me.
Uh, huh. Yeah, I can see why people are not happy about this. I’m a little pissed myself. The whole “think about the children” aspect again? THIS is why I’m so happy about every kiss and moment we get, even the first pool kiss and the totally censored sex scene. Look what they’re battling against. When you look at the scenes the m/f couples get and then THIS is what children have to be protected against.
Interviews like this do, I think, serve as a reminder that the Mexican LGBT community are the main…consumers? of this show. The rest of us international viewers are spectators and of course it’s ours to enjoy and even criticize, but we should be mindful of who the real audience is. This is about and affects their actual environment.
And then trying to make it all salacious and dig into Barbara’s own reactions. Gross. It’s why, so far, I think the actresses do deserve a lot of praise for how they’ve handled this. There’s such a difference in knowledge and awareness and culture, even the vocabulary is different. They could make a lot more missteps than they have and I still wouldn’t judge outside of their intentions.
