Faced with criticism, the president of Force for Mexico in Tlaxcala, Luis Vargas, said on a Televisa news program that his party’s candidates "are not fake" trans: “The trans issue is three-pronged: transgender, transsexual, and transvestite. And the issue for the (trans) community is very broad. I can’t get into people's privacy and tell them ‘you yes and you no.’”
Speaking about the "fake trans” report on Televisa, Mexican journalist Denise Maerker said that 18 candidates from Force for Mexico have taken on the trans identity and designated themselves as trans.
Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language news partner, Marcial Padilla, director of ConParticipación, an organization that promotes family values, said that "there are some occasions when the saying 'the snake bites its tail' comes true."
Here they could say “don't judge me or don't discriminate against me because of my gender expression,” he said.
"Finally, gender ideology, being a matter of subjective confusion and chaos, also reaches a crisis point when monetary, political or other interests can demonstrate its lies and confusion,” Padilla pointed out.
“This will be one of many cases that we are going to see in Mexico and in other countries."
