Dear Friends,

I am dont know too much about Gays rights.

But I have to show this video to you.

A Brazilian congresswoman called Myrian Rios has done an explicit show of prejudgment against the homossexual comunity.

She says amongst a lot of absurdities that homossexuals are pedophiles and asks to people do not contract them to work with.

This is very serious.
