(en) France, Press the Anarchist Federation FA - Equality for all, to stop discrimination against gays and lesbians. (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 30 Dec 2012 18:13:35 +0200

The proposed government legislation on the marriage of gays and lesbians led homophobic all sides to express themselves by pouring their hateful and sexist. Homophobia remains valid in France, where it is far from being a marginal phenomenon; proof: the suicide rate of young homosexuals is much higher than that of heterosexuals. Some are subject to "corrective rape" wipe suffer insults and rejection of their surroundings. ----Homophobes often confused, deliberately or not, homosexuality and pedophilia. In the first line, of course, waving fundamentalists of all religions and the minions of the extreme right which simplified view of sexuality is only the complementarity between men and women for reproduction. In parallel, their conception of gender relations is often rooted in a division of roles according to sex.

However, we anarchists know that gender is a social construct that assigns roles to each gender normed, themselves based on the patriarchal model.

Concerning marriage, no matter what you think of this institution, it is mainly a question of equal rights here. We are not talking about religious marriage - we have nothing to do - but civil marriage, which officials - or self-proclaimed - religions do not have to mingle.

When people do not enjoy the same rights as others, it is discrimination. For too long in this country, people of another sexual orientation that the majority are the target of discrimination.

The quality of education and affection children need not depend on the sex. Studies show that children are not disturbed because they live with same-sex parents.

Make a link between disturbances in children and growing up with homosexual couples or lesbians is the ideological stance. Most of the time, this opinion is based on religious dogma. Moreover, this may impair the individual is a grow in a closed, folded on itself, regardless of its parents.

Equality between individuals is the least we can require. It will be a vector of changing attitudes to finally all remaining patriarchy, sources of domination and violence disappear. Marriage for all, the right to adoption for homosexuals and medically assisted procreation lesbians are making progress, and this even if the institution of marriage is reproduction factor is a patriarchal model.

Law or otherwise, without the struggles against homophobia, backward mentalities can still gaining ground. It is only expressing our solidarity and condemning all acts and demeaning speech that we can make them disappear.

We denounce all about that prioritize people according to their gender or sexual orientation. We demand equality of rights for all people, here and around the world.
