"[P]erhaps we should not be asking how many Cubans are there with the balls to stand up to the regime, but instead be asking how many Cubans are there that have the balls to continue oppressing, beating, and jailing their own... If anything, we should be considering the overabundance of balls by the Cubans who have chosen to forsake freedom and injure their own for a few extra pesos and some privileges." -- Alberto de la Cruz, "A Question of Balls," Babalú, July 28, 2008
In case you are wondering, Alberto de la Cruz has answered the question:
"Who has the balls in Cuba?"
Well, it's not the women who have a monopoly on the balls in Cuba, as Val claims.
Nor the men and women who confront the regime on a daily basis, as Marc asserts.
It's Castro thugs, according to Alberto.
The thugs are the ones with the balls, starting with Fidel and Raúl.
Someone should tell Alberto that a sadist is a coward and that cowards don't have balls.
If Fidel's "New Man" is made in his image, or "Che" Guevara's or even Raúl Castro's, then the "New Man" is indeed a eunuch who submitted willingly to his own mutilation in order to gain access to the seraglio.
That may be Alberto's definition of a "man" (new or otherwise). I don't think it's anybody else's.
