Resist the pressures of the “gender department” and break the “progressive consensus.” Defend and strengthen the family in the street, the media, schools, spaces of power and parliaments. Reject and repeal any law that embraces the ideological concept of “gender”. These are the coordinates proposed by half a hundred politicians from 26 European and American countries in the most recent Transatlantic Dialogue organized by the Political Network for Values.
The conversation “A political response to the Gender Ideology” was held on March 12 with the presence of around 50 parliamentarians, members of governments, party leaders, judges and promoters of justice from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia , Ecuador, Slovakia, Spain, United States, Guatemala, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, Norway, Mexico, and Uruguay, among others.
Two hundred leaders of citizen organizations attended the event. Divided into two parts, the initial interventions, to frame the dialogue, were made by Lorcan Price, academic and legal advisor to ADF International; Rocío Monasterio, VOX deputy in the Spanish Congress and president of the acronym in Madrid; and Joseph Backholm, Board Member of the Family Research Council.
Prince presented the international legal panorama and described the momentum that the gender agenda has experienced in recent decades thanks, among other factors, to the incidence of pressure groups.
Backholm made an X-ray of the perspective assumed by those who defend gender identity as a subjective reality and without any correspondence with the biological aspects of the person, explained the medical reality of gender dysphoria and its difference with the ideological mentality of transgenderism, and he pointed out the essential lines that categorize the latter as an imposture.
He indicated that there are people who experience difficulty identifying with the sex with which they were born, that is gender dysphoria, a real medical phenomenon, between 80 and 95% of adolescents who suffer from gender dysphoria resolve it over time, without intervention, there is a natural fit of your mind with your body.
“The question we have to ask is: when the mind and the body are not aligned, which one is designed to change? or how are they aligned? What we are hearing today with gender theories is that what has to change is the body, but what is designed to change is the mind, not the body. The mind can change all the time, the body cannot, ”he warned. Whoever defends transgenderism and the existence of multiple gender identities «assumes that there is no design in our bodies, that their mind is in charge, in various ways their mind is their god, what their mind dictates that would be the truth; but the mind can be wrong and feelings do not determine reality. And this is what differentiates us with them, the answer to the question of what determines what is real? ».
Monastery, for its part, opened the doors of concrete political experience: it presented the progress that the ideological gender agenda has had in Spain, in all areas of social life, pointed out how the field of education has an importance and explained how his party, VOX, has given a frontal battle to this ideology, which won them the support of wide sectors of the population, and even some sectors of the traditional left fed up with the irrationality of the extremists’ demands.
“We have been battling for a long time on absolutely all fronts and we came to the conclusion that we could only deal with this clearly if we reached governments from where we would repeal these laws, and that is clearly our goal. It is a complicated task, we are alone in this task because all the other parties do not want to enter here, but we have realized that when it is defended with courage, when it is defended with clarity, the people who listen to our postulates join.
The last step we have taken is to combat the concept of gender, to eradicate it from all legislation and education, it is a complicated task, we are alone because all the other parties do not want to enter it, but we have realized that when it is defended with courage and clarity, the people who listen to our postulates join in, not only from the Christian sphere, but also from the sphere of the left, they detect sectarianism, “he said.
«It is necessary to give a very clear fight in the street, to mobilize people, to go out with courage, defend freedom, defend ourselves against the gender dictatorship, defend that the concept of family cannot be eliminated, which is the anchor that It remains for us to free ourselves from the imposition of the State; defend it from the legal point of view by repealing it in the laws, article by article, and also a very clear fight in the media. You do not have to be afraid”.
