“Nympho whores”: macho insults from students scandalize Spain


MADRID | A viral video showing young students from a Madrid university residence hurling a torrent of macho and sexual insults at the girls' residence opposite scandalized Spain on Thursday, causing even the Prime Minister to react.&nbsp ;

“Sluts, come out of your burrows like rabbits, you are nympho whores, I promise you that you will all (get) fucked”: on this video of about thirty seconds, we hear the insults pronounced very distinctly by a male voice from a building after dark.

This young man then shouts “Allez Ahuja” (the name of the Elias Ahuja residence hall). In a perfectly synchronized movement, dozens of blinds in the building then open, revealing several silhouettes at each window which begin to howl animal sounds.

The video was filmed from the student residence opposite, the Colegio Mayor Santa Mónica, occupied by girls.

Having gone viral on social networks, where it caused a scandal after its publication on the night of Wednesday to Thursday, this video made react even the socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.

“We cannot tolerate such behaviors that generate hatred and harm women. (…) Enough machismo!”, he said on Twitter.

Asked about this affair in Prague, where he is taking part in the summit of EU leaders and their continental counterparts, Mr. Sanchez then launched an “appeal to all political parties and the media (…) so that we address a unitary response (…) of rejection of these macho, inexplicable, unjustified and absolutely repugnant behaviors”.

“Sex education classes, that's what the students of this residence need” , said for her part the Minister of Equality Irene Montero, denouncing the “culture of rape and sexual terror which makes women sexual objects”.

The direction of the Colegio Mayor Elias Ahuja s is quick to condemn the “unacceptable expressions uttered by a group of residents” and to present its “public apologies to the management as well as to the students of the Santa Mónica residence”, before announcing the expulsion of several students involved.

Opened in 1969, this residence is located on the campus of the prestigious Complutense University of Madrid. A room there costs about 1,100 euros per month. The former number one of the Popular Party (PP), the main formation of the right-wing opposition, Pablo Casado was one of his residents during his studies.
