Mexico considers making 'sexual preference' a human right

.- The president of the Mexican association Familia Mundial, Juan Dabdoub, has denounced the country’s government for considering a constitutional amendment that would make “sexual preference” a human right.

He argued that the measure would also legitimize pedophilia and bestiality.

Dabdoub, who directs the association based in Monterrey, underscored that the human right to “sexual preference” does not exist in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or in “any international organization.”

The House of Representatives debated Feb. 24 whether to put the measure to a vote on March 1, but chose to send it back to the committee.

Dabdoub said the measure was sponsored by “representatives from the Democratic Revolution Party,” which also promoted the legalization of abortion and homosexual unions in Mexico City.

Dabdoub told CNA on Feb. 24 that this amendment would institutionalize conduct that psychiatric entities worldwide “treat as disorders,” such as transvestism, fetishism, voyeurism, exhibitionism and sado-masochism.

If the measure is approved, “teachers would be able to dress as transvestites and teach their classes.” They could not be disciplined “because you would be discriminating against them,” Daboub added.

Sexual preference is not “a medical term,” he underscored, noting that “a clear intent” exists “to move toward allowing behavior in society in which sexuality is completely trivialized.”

“There are politicians who want to push these things through, but there are also many people of good will who should have been just a bit more suspicious of what their colleagues were proposing with their erroneous ideology,” Dabdoub said.
