Only in Brazil

An 18-year-old was arrested for kissing a 13-year-old boy in a movie theatre in São Paulo. They were on an internet date but the manager of the theatre decided to call the police for what he saw as a minor in peril. Even though the 13-year-old said he wasn't being forced to make out, the 18-year-old was still charged with "raping a vulnerable person."
On the other hand, students from a rural university in the state of Rio did a demonstration against homophobia after gay residents of a dorm were harassed by straight students who later claimed "gay panic defence."
