Congratulations Rio!

It was just announced that Rio de Janiero has been selected to host the 2016 Olympics! This will be the first time that the Olympics will be hosted in a Latin/South American country. It’s sad that Chicago won’t get the Olympics, but how wonderful and exciting for Rio. I just hope that this doesn’t lead to:

1. Exterminating communities that are deemed inappropriate for visitors to see. I. E. razing favelas instead of working actively to improve conditions.

2. An increase in the number of womyn who are forced into prositution

No one saw Rio coming!
