The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) of Mexico has condemned the transphobic expressions made by deputy Gabriel Quadri de la Torre, of the National Action Party (PAN).
The CNDH considers that these types of actions “encourage the violence against LGBTTTIQ+ people to persist, promoting disinformation and discrimination against these populations,” according to the statement posted on their social networks.
He also called on the political parties of Mexico so that practices aimed at inclusion, equality, non-discrimination and the elimination “of all forms of violence against the LGBTTTIQ population” are considered from now on within their statutes. .
This rejection is mainly due to the comment made by deputy Quadri de la Torre on his Twitter account on January 10, who considers that “trans ideology seeks to dehumanize and objectify women, and turn them into ‘pregnant people’ or ‘ people with vaginas. Let’s hope they don’t allow it.”
These statements provoked the rejection of many people and public figures, such as Salma Luévano and María Clemente García, both members of the ruling National Regeneration Movement (Morena) in the Chamber of Deputies, and community activists.
The legislators accused Quadri de la Torre of promoting transphobic and hate speech.
