Maggie Gallagher working her charms on President Dilma Rousseff (?)

26 May

Presiding with no spine.

Thanks to my friend Jennifer Lockett for inspiring this story.  Sadly, the United States is not the only country caving into homophobic evangelical bigots.  President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil has now suspended sex education materials, specifically the material that addresses bullying of LGBT youth.  Yes, after “evangelical church groups and their allies in Congress threatened to block any upcoming legislation,” President Rousseff then halted the educational videos–nice backbone there, Rousseff–great leadership.  According to the ministry:

Several members of Brazil’s chamber of deputies with strong evangelic Christian beliefs said the sex education packs encouraged homosexual behaviour.

Really?  That’s the best you can do?  I have to say that all the sex education I had that “encouraged” heterosexual behavior did not “recruit” me to be heterosexual.  How sad that the ministry of health and education puts its own bigoted agenda ahead of the health and welfare of all youth, specifically LGBT youth.    Click here to see the full article.
