Hell freezes over en Espana

When macho is outlawed, only the hombres will be too scared to vote no:

Spanish Parliament passed on Thursday a broad affirmative action bill aimed at getting more women in elected office and corporate boardrooms,and more men heating baby bottles and changing diapers.

"Today is the first day of a different society," socialist Presdient Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said during debate before a vote on the bill.

The final tally in the 350-seat Congress of Deputies was 192 in favor, zero against and 119 abstentions. The latter were from the conservative Popular Party, which has derided the bill as too interventionist.
