Mobile unlock code - Senha Do Celular

Brazilian culture, as we all know, it's a very paternalistic, cisgender, heteronormative and other weird adjetives that Tumblr likes to use that makes us all feel a little guilty inside, so as a product of such a vicious culture, we sometimes get weird pieces that shock those living in more advanced countries, such as our dear readers in Burkina Faso or Chad.

In this piece, Mobile unlock code, by the critically acclaimed duo Henry and Jacob, tells us of the trials and tribulations of a man whose female property significant other dares to deny him his constitutional right to check on her mobile. While untrained eyes might believe that his concerned that she's having an affair, the careful wording chosen by the authors shows us that he's mainly concerned that his slave love has obtained property through illegal means, or is owing money to someone (possibly a loan shark or a con man), for which she is clearly ashamed, as no rational human being would face the charges of "Withholding information from one's owner" (New Brazilian Criminal Code, 2013), which at its lightest bans one from having plastic surgeries or enjoying carnival for 30 years.

In the end, it's unclear what exactly she was holding out from her master husband, but given that she has a secret webpage, I am led to believe that she was conducting some sort of shady business.



If she doesn't let me get the mobile
It's because she's cheating
And lying
She has something

If she doesn't let me get the mobile
It's because she owes someone
She's tricking me
With someone else's talk

I found the mobile unlock code
And all I've seen has hurt me
I went to your page and your Whatsapp™
I've read all your messages

I now understand her despair
That she even takes her mobile to the loo
Turns it off when I'm next to her, claims it's discharged
Or that she forgot the charger

If she doesn't let me get the mobile
It's because she's cheating
And lying
She has something

If she doesn't let me get the mobile
It's because she owes someone
She's tricking me
With someone else's talk
