The UN aims to create a "Gay Gestapo"
A resolution on sexual orientation and gender identity was filed with the Human Rights Council of the UN in Geneva on 17 June, just past. The sponsors of the resolution include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica and Uruguay.
In fact, the resolution has been "cooked" by the Uruguayan delegation, although it was the Brazilian delegation who drafted the final text. And, actually, in the document, Marcia Canario de Oliveira, the second secretary of the Brazilian mission in Geneva, appears as the author.
Mexico has been formally presented with the text, as it is now the only member of the proposing countries which is actually sitting on the Human Rights Council (as they have a rotating membership).
CitizenGO has learned that the EU and US prefer other countries to submit this resolution. But, its diplomats have enthusiastically supported this order. And, now, the vote is scheduled for next Thursday, 30 June, at the Human Rights Council of the UN in Geneva.
The proposal is concrete - it appoints a Special Rapporteur to monitor compliance with the so-called special rights of the LGBT community.
It is, in fact, a kind of "Gay Gestapo."
This resolution goes far beyond the previous resolutions approved in June, 2011, and September, 2014, in which violence as well as social and job discrimination, suffered by LGBT groups, are censured.
Now, this resolution seeks to approve a sort of special "LGBT human rights", with highly-dubious and inconsistent/fluctuating definition, but with global authority to apply them. These would be the powers of the Special Rapporteur under Paragraph 3 of the text:
"To assess the implementation of international human rights law and current regulations regarding ways to overcome violence and discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity while best practices and gaps (of those international norms and laws) are identified."
Will the Special Rapporteur risk defending the institutions or states which protect man-woman marriage? Will it have the power to sanction those states which protect the natural family and man-woman marriage, over and above homosexual unions?
The resolution is extremely controversial for the following reasons:
- There is no international treaty to establish rights based on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI by its acronym).
- There is no national legislation or consensus of standards which establishes SOGI as a protected category for all UN Member States.
- The opinions of the monitoring committee of the treaties on which this resolution is based, are mere opinions and are not binding on member states.
- There is no definition of so-called "SOGI discrimination", which means it could be almost anything at all.
