Brazilian LGBT activists are not at all happy with President Dilma Rousseff's latest decision. She
rejected a sex education program that included anti-homophobia material, calling it “too adult” for schoolchildren.
The president's spokesperson says Rousseff watched the video herself and decided to halt production and distribution. But as you might expect, some Christian groups and their allies in congress threatened to block any upcoming legislation if the president didn't put a stop to the videos. As you might also expect, some LGBT activists are accusing President Rousseff of caving to pressure.
Jean Wyllys, a Brazilian congressman and a leading rights activist, says he's kind of lost his faith in President Rousseff.
“I voted for her in the last elections,” he said, “because I thought she would defend the rights of lesbian, gay and bisexual citizens. If she doesn't do a U-turn and change her mind, I will urge all gay people not to vote for her again.”
