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