The article called "Mother or Cow".
Click in the letter in the black font screen...Then see the article in the pages 37 and 38... Maybe you can translate it in google..

Reading now... but, tbh, I never cared for El Mundo. I much, much prefer El Pais... el mundo was (at least, when I was in spain 4.5 yrs ago) a bit sensational - into the big draw and not much actual substance, yk?

As you said MamadelBosque, El Mundo is more sensational than El Pais, but I'm still furious..I founded the pics offensive, and the article way out of line.

Oh, I agree absolutely, especially about the pic, though the whole article was pretty crappy (kinda along the lines of one I read in... what was it, some other 'news magazine' but in the us recently...).

I wasn't able to read the article, but I too found the pictures offensive. Even the title is offensive. Mother or cow? Do people not realize that all mammals lactate, and that we are mammals?

The article didn't open for me (probably due to internet restrictions - see my location), and I don't speak Spanish - so I would've understood only a few fragments (I learned Latin, French, and a bit of Italian.)
It's quite remarkable how as a culture we've gotten used to "milk equals cow", really as if there weren't any other mammals on this planet.
So, maybe we could rename the article "mother or tiger?" for a different take on things?

Much better than my first thought, which was "mother or dolphin?"
