Most pf us can understand the mythical meaning of certain characters, and that's briefly what it's all about. Each club has the myths it deserves, and every TV viewer has the myths he (or in this case more commonly, she) deserves. Mythical is that particular individual bathed by good luck, godlike aura and kinda halo, a fact that science cannot plainly justify through its laws. The myth (as Roland Barthes might have put it) is a symbol of example, attitude, conviction, character, and honor. Fatima Bernardes is probably not THE best symbol for mass myth, but she does satisfy the daily mornings' belief that "a positive thought a day is what we need." Mythical, she personalizes the ideal of the collective mainstream viewers. Her boastful interviews celebrate social inclusion, feminist protest, political correctness, gender ideology, hooligans' graffiti on public walls, sexual (mis)education in primary school, by preaching that any child is born with sexuality, by disrespecting the right "to be a child." Fatima ignores that angels have no sex, so she steals their innocence. Along with other myths of TV Globo network (Regina Casé, Big Broder Brazil, Amor & Sex, etc.) she does help to foster a kinda social engineering nexus.
