The feminist activist Pamela Palenciano will testify on October 20 before the Court of Instruction No. 15 of Madrid as investigated by an alleged crime of degrading treatment against men in his monologue ‘Not only do the blows hurt‘. Despite this, the Cádiz Provincial Council He has turned to the Jienense and has subsidized her tour throughout the province.
In total, 19 performances in theaters, municipal booths and libraries. Their “Incendiary slogans” and their “hatred” against men, as defined by the Battered Men’s Association, will be represented before the young people of Cadiz -some of them minors- from at least fifteen public institutes and private centers in the region.
Phrases like «all who call themselves abused men are abusers»Will resound in important cities -Chiclana, El Puerto de Santa María, Jerez- and also in municipalities with just 1,000 inhabitants -Zahara de la Sierra, El Gastor-. A message that will be repeated in closed functions for students and in rooms with free admission for all audiences.
This same Thursday, the stand-up writer performs in Cádiz with the support of the Municipal Foundation for Women -ascribed to the Department of Feminisms and LGBTIQ + of the Cádiz City Council– and the Equality and Inclusion Unit of the Cadiz University.
Palenciano lived in his own flesh the rejection of the audience on March 14, 2019 in Linares (Jaén). Three young people left the function unhappy with what they were hearing. The woman from Jaén, incredulous, tried to convince them: “It had happened to me in my life.” To the teachers present there he dedicated a “and do you let them go?” Without them, he addressed the public: «Since they’re not here anymore, fuck them. I imitated them when they left and they didn’t realize it, you have to be an asshole not to see it ». Uncomfortable applause. The performance, in the El Pósito auditorium, was organized by the Department of Equality of the City of Linares, then governed by the PSOE. The stand-up writer was hired to commemorate the Women’s Day.

But you don’t have to go that far. The feminist was vetoed last saturday in Navalagamella (Madrid), in equality days subsidized by the Ministry of Irene Montero and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP). The mayor, Andrés Samperio (PP), alleged that Palenciano “has pending a few lawsuits” for acting in a “biased manner” against men, so he was inclined to “avoid controversy” and cancel his monologue.
The day before, last Friday, Palenciano performed at the Santa Petronilla sociocultural center in Madrid before the students of the IES El Espinillo despite the fact that some parents transferred their complaints to the Battered Men Association. «They are worried, do not dare to refuse for fear of social reprisals towards their children. That their classmates harass them or that the teachers look at them with bad eyes. The last time young people refused, they were treated as assholes (in reference to the act in Linares) ». The collective has demanded paralyze your tour until the trial is over.
The feminist, on the other hand, defends that “I wish in high school, when I was a teenager, they had told me what I tell.” Already in 2017 he received the first complaint for «apology for violence». In 2019 the second arrived. The Association of Spaniards Against Corruption accused him of «child abuse». Both were shelved.
In January 2020, United we can invited her to represent her role in the Madrid Assembly, although the then president of the chamber, Juan Trinidad (Cs), stopped the performance: «There is no theater here». Finally, Palenciano acted at the gates of the Assembly amid shouts of “Cheer up Pamela, here’s your pack.”
In a recent interview for Andalusia Information, the feminist affirms not to hate men: «What I hate is hegemonic masculinity and machismo». But in his monologue we find examples to the contrary, in which he denounces “sexist violence” with more violence: “When I hit my boyfriend with that piece of host, my boyfriend reacts like this (gestures of pain). Aren’t you wanting to get me 26 more? My host had one goal: for the uncle to talk, and since he doesn’t talk, I get into trouble with him ».
