Brazilian presidential candidate makes anti-gay comments based on lack of reproduction
A Brazilian presidential candidate, Levy Fidelix, has sparked anger over anti-gay remarks, made under cover of equal time and access. Adriana Gomez Licon has an Associated Press story in Huffington, link here. One of the crudist statements suggested that gay people should be sent “very far away from us” for “psychological help” because gay sex doesn’t lead to reproduction. That reminds us of statements from other countries, such as a Ugandan president’s statement that something had to be wrong with men not who were not attracted to the country’s “so many beautiful women”, and Putin’s insinuation that gays exacerbate Russia’s low birth rate.
With many people, in some parts of the world, it is definitely about the lack of procreation,.
