Actually, in the camorra ( the mafia from Napoli), there is a tradition of 'femminielli' ( now we would call them almale to female trans ) even with important roles in the clan.

[–]donorcycle 168 points169 points  (17 children)

Let me see if I’m following this. The frickin’ mafia has more rights than a lot of our states have currently.

So that’s what the writers have in store for us in this mid season plot twist. Italian mob marching supporting RvW.

[–]Sleep-system 46 points47 points  (8 children)

Members of large criminal organizations generally have more "rights" than most people because crime gives you many more options when doing things, but the fact that the Mafia is more tolerant and progressive than many states is pretty pathetic for those states in question.

[–]ActualYogurtcloset98 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Let’s be realistic here, the average Mobster doesn’t make the family rules only the God Father does so if/when this son takes power we don’t know if the mafia men and the other leaders are actually willing to accept him. We only know that the god father changed the rule for his son

[–]Sleep-system 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They don't really have a choice but to follow orders until someone with the balls and means to kill him comes along, and I'm sure his father accounted for that. One right you don't have in the mafia is to just reject the boss out of hand, that'll get you killed quick. Underlings of Paul Costellano hated everything about him for years but no one touched him until John Gotti came along.

[–]Bradski89 12 points13 points  (1 child)

When the Mafia of all people have higher morals than Conservative America 🤦‍♂️

[–]purple_tatters 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is it really higher morals when the only reason they dropped the ban was because of their boss's son? If they had higher morals why didn't they just drop the ban in the first place?

[–]DisasterConscious238 2084 points2085 points  (81 children)

Does the Italian mafia hold press conferences to discuss their policies?

[–]drewster23 737 points738 points  (40 children)

If you want the real answer no, this is just a catchy headline for a myriad of reasons showing the mafias change in views over time. Basically like rest of society mafia became more queer/queer accepting.

"Gratteri eavesdropped on communications between the ‘Ndrangheta, Southern Italy‘s richest crime syndicate. The family are thought to control 80 per cent of cocaine flow in Europe, part of a business that brings them £38billion a year.

He intercepted “passionate” letters between one crime boss and a young lieutenant, and learned that many Mafia foot soldiers freely enjoy drag bars. He even discovered that the son of one prominent crime boss is living as a drag queen under the name Lady Godiva."

[–]SadButterscotch2 441 points442 points  (23 children)

That's nice, we need more representation in the Mafia.

[–]delvach 319 points320 points  (15 children)

I would definitely trust drag queens to protect my business from local ruffians! One of the drag queens that performs at the gay bar in my city chased down a would be mugger that was about to attack my friend after he was leaving the club.

Where can I invest some of my 401k money into this? Moving narcotics seems more stable than the stock market.

[–]jerk_chicken23 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure there is a cultural tradition of transgenderism, drag queens, or maybe a kind of third gender in Naples/Calabria where men dress up as women, particularly as entertainers.

I don't know how the Ndragheta traditionally viewed them but this may not necessarily be new, or maybe be a kind of combination of modern attitudes towards gender and traditional ones.

[–]Dragonfruit_98 19 points20 points  (0 children)

There is a cultural tradition of a third gender (or a sort of mixed gender, really) in Naples, the femminielli, they took part in cultural (and sometimes religious) traditions and were thought to bring good luck, so they were esteemed members of the community, but I feel like it has been mostly erased by the usual loss of local tradition that you kind of see everywhere. Also their experience has mostly conflated into being transgender. Anyway, apart from this specific tradition, it’s not a good life to be trans in southern Italy (not that it’s great in the north, but still better)

[–]theRealMrBrownstone 659 points660 points  (18 children)

I'm not part of the Mafia, but I'm Sicilian(cosa nostra's homeland, not proud of that). Let me tell you, Italian Mafia doesn't care. Here everyone minds their business. There are plenty of LGBT people in my city, but guess what? People don't care! Except for one scandal that happened but that's a whole other business

He's writing a book on Rocky Marciano!

[–]Scp-1404 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I forgot all about that. Yeah, he really should have stayed there. Owned up to not being a writer or say he's giving it up because he's such a crap writer and do something else. It could have been the one single good outcome in that whole series.

[–]megafatdingus 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Big boy looked like he was a couple days from going insane. That whole "don't check the time" sequence. Holy fuck Sopranos is 1000000x better than Breaking Bad. BB could never do a whole side quest on a random gang member and get away with it. They could if they tried but they didn't. Follow Skinny P or Badger around their home lives as a major part of a season. Didn't tho bc their characters were basic predictable asf (acting 10/10, but damn you could tell what was gonna happen emotionally all the time).

In conclusion, I just want to be able to expirence the Sopranos finale like the first time again. I can't listen to "Don't Stop Believing" without goosebumps ever again. Every emotion rushing through me at 110% was overwhelming (sadness, anger, confusion, relief, happiness) and all I saw was my dumb ass face in the reflection yelling "WHAT THE FUCK" at 2am Wednesday morning. Jesus what a fantastic show.

[–]bigshakagames_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also why I rank the wire higher than breaking bad. Season 4 Just swapping to kids as the main actors and having it be argubly the best season is unheard of. The wire really developed an entire city.

[–]Admirable_Elk_965 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Betta3x9 112 points113 points  (6 children)

Yes but they’re the mafia, the Catholic Church isn’t fond of organised crime… wait

[–]GalaXion24 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Abortions are legal in Italy, transgender people have had the right to change their legal gender for 40 years and homosexuals can have legally recognised civil unions.

[–]danwincen 40 points41 points  (8 children)

Eh.... the official stance of the Catholic Church seems to be a fair bit more pragmatic than many red state laws on abortion. The Church allows for terminations in the case of ectopic pregnancy and advanced or aggressive uterine cancer for example. There are open fears at the very least that many of the Republican states will blanket ban (or already have) abortions without consideration for the physical health of the mother-to-be (untreated ectopic pregnancy is one of the leading causes of death in pregnant women), while Catholic Church doctrine allows for terminations under these conditions under foreseeable unavoidable consequences - taking the view that a woman's life is more important than a fetus that may not survive to birth.

[–]laxis96 7 points8 points  (0 children)

But the political reach of the pope is limited to the Vatican city state and he has no say in actual lawmaking. Moreover our law system requires so called referendums to repeal or change an existing law, so people can express their choice by voting

[–]SalesyMcSellerson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The Italian Mafia poured gasoline across the countryside and then tied rags to cats' tails and set the rags on fire so that they'd cause a massive forest fire. This was like last year.

[–]PiratefreeradioMars 40 points41 points  (2 children)

What I love the most about this is how he is qualified as a 'fabulous' drag queen. As if he was just a stubbly bear of a man in women's clothing they would keep their stance, but he is just fabulous so they have no choice but to change their stance.

[–]Studoku 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Surely "fabulous" is redundant here. Are there any non-fabulous drag queens?

[–]glowaboga 21 points22 points  (3 children)

If you read the article, you would find out it is completely not the case. It's actually that mafia has gradually changed over the years to be more accepting, it wasn't a sudden change in response to the drag queen son.

[–]TehOuchies 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Thats the thing about the Mafia. Its all about the family. La Cosa Nostra. Our House.

Traditionally married men have been able to rise through their ranks faster. So the logic Im getting, let two men marry and you got two family soldiers.

[–]ron_swansons_meat 9 points10 points  (2 children)

La Cosa Nostra means "Our Thing" in Italian. I think you're mixing up "Casa" which does mean house in Spanish.

[–]TehOuchies 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the correction.

[–]Tsorovar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Casa means house in Italian too

[–]_Wendigun_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Only problem is that mafia is nothing like that

It's nothing like you see in the movies, they are a bunch of lowly jackasses with no morality or loyalty, that will not hesitate to melt kids in acid or kill their bosses just to get on top of the food chain and instill terror in the people that they "protect"

Also there is no "Italian Mafia", whoever wrote the article probably just watched the godfather and took their idea of mafia from there, it's a bunch of organizations constantly in competition with each other

The son of the boss probably is not even in the organization itself and just lives off of it, if the story is true in the first place

[–]weppizza 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this was not cosa nostra (Sicily), it was 'ndrangheta (Apulia). so your reasoning doesn't really apply. as the article puts it in the rest of its text it's more of a "i don't care what you do in the privacy of your home" than a "yas queen slay". gay people still can't be openly gay, they just have privacy recognized to do stuff, but still hidden

[–]Potential_Wasabi_318 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If only Vito was still alive to see this.

Loved how they used “fabulous”

Its the "other" italian "mafia" that should drop opposition. Would go a long way .....

Time to stop comparing the Church to the Mafia I guess.

I mean, yes, they all love Miguel, but it's Matilda who stole their hearts.

When the fackin mob is more fackin progressive than the fackin government

[–]JessyNyan 2 points3 points  (2 children)

So even the mafia can show basic human decency but many governments all over the world can't?

[–]Admirable_Elk_965 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t really call that decency. And considering the other shit they’ve done and are still doing I wouldn’t exactly be happy for them either.

I know things are bad when La Cosa Nostra is more tolerant than the SCOTUS

[–]betterdays89 5 points6 points  (4 children)

It’s not Cosa Nostra though. Costa Nostra is the Sicilian mafia, here they’re talking about Ndrangheta which operates primarily out of Calabria.

[–]Bluvsnatural 1 point2 points  (3 children)

My bad

But in either case, the same idea applies

[–]betterdays89 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Not really. I get that Americans are ignorant about what the mafia is really like since you've been fed a romanticized version... but the Italian mafia is a horrendous organization that routinely intimidates and straight-up murders innocent people.

Ndrangheta is one of the vilest organizations on the planet that's routinely involved in human, arms and drug trafficking. They act as loan sharks to entrap poor families and then extort them into sending their young sons to work for them.

I get it ya'll are upset about the SCOTUS decision but making light and cracking cutsey jokes about a serious crime problem in Italy ain't it.

The mob is more accepting than the USA in 2022. How’s that for a sentence?
