Femicides have a very passionate component. I have thought a lot about femicides, ahd concluded that are finally an act of love, because the imprint on the corpse is a passion of the soul and femicide, no matter how bloody and horrific it may seem, is an act of love, an act of donation with a dose of cruelty.”
