Mexico lawmaker asks to ban gay unions in public because it ‘confuses children’

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

MEXICO CITY – A state legislator has caused a stir by asking authorities to bar gay weddings from public spaces, arguing it confuses children in a state that just approved same-sex civil unions.

Colima state lawmaker Rafael Mendoza said mothers came to him with complaints after a wedding took place between a U.S. man and a Mexican man in the main plaza of the city of Cuauhtemoc.

Rafael Mendoza

He said Tuesday that society is not ready to watch gay weddings, saying the mothers didn’t know what to tell their kids when the two men dressed in charro suits kissed.

“Parents are coming to me, to my house, to tell me they are against the city carrying out these weddings in public,” Mendoza said. “I am not against these civil unions; the only thing is I don’t want them in public.”

A rival political group said it plans to file a human rights complaint this week charging Mendoza with discrimination.

His own party, the Democratic Revolution Party, ask ed him to take back the comments, since the leftist party has championed gay marriages in Mexico.

Mendoza said he isn’t giving up his party leadership in the state congress because he didn’t do anything wrong. He said he is representing his constituents and voicing their concerns.

“He is discriminating,” said Cuauhtemoc Mayor Indira Vizcaino. “He is claiming that it creates a bad image for children and young people to have these gay weddings in public.”

Colima’s legislature voted in May to approve a change in the state’s constitution to create same-sex civil unions. The law provides gay couples with numerous social benefits similar to those of married couples, but Colima still restricts marriage to a man and a woman.

The city of Cuauhtemoc has pushed for making gay marriage legal, and the mayor says 35 same-sex couples have held civil union ceremonies so far and more than a dozen are to come.

Currently, same-sex marriages are allowed in Mexico only in Mexico City and in the southern state of Oaxaca. The northern state of Coahuila began allowing same-sex civil unions in 2007.

  20. Kids would totally understand if a parent was an ADULT when they’ve been asked by their ‘confused’ child, and taught by their ADULT parent that there are different relationship types. Keep it vanilla, keep it vague if the children are young. They’ll believe anything you say, so be careful not to be a hateful bigot when you do…as you have spawned that which is yours to mold!

  33. The cult of christianity is hate which is why Christians enslaved, torture and murder hundreds of millions of people for 2013 years in the name of a mythical bastard son of a mythical god. Do NOT revise the genocidal history of Jesus Freaks. Have you HEARD about the 400-year inquisition. Do you think Nazis were Nordic worshippers - they were NOT - they were Lutheran and Catholic Christians. You do KNOW that Christians ENSLAVED Africans for centuries right. #HolocaustDenier #SlaveryDenier #GenocidalChristianExcuser #DumpStupid

  45. Being subjectively offended is not the same as being objectively injured. Discrimination is injury – being stymied in one’s pursuit of continued or amplified discrimination against others is perceived-but-not-actual offense…after all, one chooses one’s attitudes far more easily than one’s instincts.

    This person, for example, could choose not to be an overreacting cultural regressive – it’s not as if there aren’t plenty of accessible online resources and social support for those who recognise their sin of willful ignorance and choose to become ex-bigots. Children are far more resilient than adults give them credit for, and early intervention against bigoted attitudes and cultural practices has been shown to be highly effective and devoid of negative side-effects. As opposed, of course, to the /other/ kinds of purported intervention and therapy…

  121. No, it’s hatred that confuses children. When I first told my daughter that it was illegal for two people of the same sex to marry, she looked at me bewildered and said, “why?”

    It made perfect sense to her that two adults who loved one another would obviously marry if they wanted to do so. That’s what children understand. She wasn’t raised to believe that. We never spoke of homosexuality, just as I was raised. So, if anything is going to confuse children, it’s bigotry, because we teach that to our children.

  162. No, it confuses this guy, the children just hear about it and go, okay. They’ll ask the questions later. This guy, he’s just pushing his own idiocy onto innocent kids.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 11:17am

  174. Parents who ignore their kids is what confuses them. Probably talking things out when they see this would be better.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 1:26pm
  175. Your country needs to focus more on crime than about the healthy lives of sexuality of people youth just see as people gay or not.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 1:28pm
  176. Let’s just ban everything that adults perceive as confusing for children………. Good grief! What a dummy this guys is.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 1:49pm
  181. How are you going to ban this for those who want to celebrate it? I see what fred is saying. If you want to teach some kids it’s wrong..then that is your issue. But how the heck are you going to regulate something for all the communities who don’t have a problem with it. Yeah…I can empathize with concerns about ‘propaganda”…when the issue is close enough to teaching it in public schools…but to….long discussion I think.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 1:57pm
  182. maybe they need to educate the kids more… duh…

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 2:01pm
  183. I say we ban morons in office.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 2:20pm
  184. Everything confuses children at some point. That is why we educate them. The fact that something might be confusing is a petty idiotic reason to ban it. Let’s ban calculus while we are at it, and particle physics. Those are confusing as hell and we don’t want to confuse the children.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 2:26pm
  185. How does it confuse children? Children may be smarter than him.

  187. Nothing to be confused about. Just explain that people who love each other get married.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 2:36pm
  188. It does not confuse children, it confuses bigot parents who do not want to inform their children about the love they do not agree with.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 2:45pm
  189. You what else confuses children? Geography, Geography confuses children! Shall we ban it?

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 2:58pm

  200. well im sure there are a lot of confusing things there let them live and learn

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 3:48pm
  201. Children are of innocence…teach them that its not right to judge someone on who they are with..it should be a “normal” not something to be feared..when you hide something or make it into something fear-ful what do you think will happen when they get older?? Teach them that its okay to think open minded.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 5:52pm
  210. Actually, at least in USA, most children have much less difficulty understanding and accepting than adults. Real hope for the future.

  213. The truth is never confusing for children , only if they were lied to from the beginning,which many in this society have done.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 6:25pm
  214. Mexico – gay marriages confuse children but not thousands of drug cartels?

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 6:26pm
  215. children are easily confused by lots of things. i was walking in the park with my nephew when he saw two lesbians kissing on the bench. he asked me why, purely out of curiosity. i simply said it’s because they love one another. his response? “oh. okay.” that was that.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 6:41pm

  218. No you dumb fuck… Banning them and making a fuss about it is more confusing. Please stop using our children as leverage for your Hatred.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 7:22pm
  219. let’s ban religion because it brainwashed children

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 7:41pm
  220. Well, at least we know that stupidity and bigotry are no respecters of borders, ethnicity, etc.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 8:06pm
  221. Children would not be confused if they were allowed to be themselves,free of society and the bullshit programming involved in that structure that breeds hate and intolerance.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 8:11pm
  222. Heterosexual divorce doesn’t confuse children? WHATEVER!

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 8:25pm

  228. The only children who are confused by same-sex marriages belong to shitty parents who cannot spend five minutes explaining equality to their children.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 9:45pm
  231. Children are only confused when what they see doesn’t match what they have been told by their homophobic, bible-thumping parents!

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 9:52pm
  232. How dare that hideous fat warthog disrespects the LGBT community with such bogus crap that is so irrelevant.

  233. I think it just confuses HIM.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 10:04pm
  234. Well that makes sense. Yeah, I mean I know every time I pass a straight wedding, the look I see on every child passer by is one of COMPLETE and UTTER understanding… but then I passed by a gay wedding and there were kids poking their own eyes out, slamming their heads into the sidewalk, and walking into trees… it just CONFUSED THEM SOOO MUCH to see two people of the same sex getting married so obviously we need to protect them.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 10:17pm
  235. it “confuses children.” Does he really think people are SO blinded and stupid that they can’t complete the sentence in their own minds? It confuses children into believing that gay people should be treated equally and of course, we CANNOT have any of that happening. That’s really what he means and I laugh when politicians stop their sentences short like that… like no one could EVER figure out what they were implying. DUH.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 10:20pm
  236. everything confuses children until they learn about it! use it as a teaching moment you stupid idiots!
