Post 114: Chairo

People that are pro- left politics, but the  ones that are very extreme and stingy about it. You call Chairo to the ones  that are against globalization, against capitalism, think the united states is the most evil country in the world and insult you if you not agree with them.

They’ll always tell you about how evil political parties like Pri and Pan are, but usually are Pro Morena (left  political partie).

Their biggest hero is AMLO, leader of Morena, and a Mexican politician that has contended for being president and lost for very few votes twice already, and if you ask them about this, they’ll probably tell you hundred of conspiracy theories about the election being manipulated by the other parties and the Mexican media (wich may indeed be true, but its such a pain to talk about this stuff).

Ex.

No discutas con ella de politica, es una chaira / Don’t talk politics with her. She is a chaira

Post 112: Niño rata

Literally translated into “ratboy”, this is the name people in Mexico and latin American gave to pre-adolescents with a squeaky voice, that are playing games online (most of them not intended for their age), and screaming, yelling and insulting other players.
They tend to be very young, from 10-15 years old, and their biggest stars are youtube and twitch videogame streamers, who they love almost religiously.

It became  a very popular trend/internet meme, and if you do something someone else don’t like in a game, when you are online, they call you “niño rata” in a teasing manner.

The real inspiration for this word it’s an early simpsons episode, in wich Homer calls Bart Ratboy.
