.- The president of the Mexican association Familia Mundial, Juan Dabdoub, has denounced the countryâs government for considering a constitutional amendment that would make âsexual preferenceâ 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 âsexual preferenceâ does not exist in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or in âany international organization.â
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 ârepresentatives from the Democratic Revolution Party,â 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 âtreat as disorders,â such as transvestism, fetishism, voyeurism, exhibitionism and sado-masochism.
If the measure is approved, âteachers would be able to dress as transvestites and teach their classes.â They could not be disciplined âbecause you would be discriminating against them,â Daboub added.
Sexual preference is not âa medical term,â he underscored, noting that âa clear intentâ exists âto move toward allowing behavior in society in which sexuality is completely trivialized.â
âThere 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,â Dabdoub said.
