"What I understand there's Gil, by God in heaven, was how I would react if my son had a relationship with a gay. That's what I understand, "said the deputy, in an interview at the Planalto Palace.
I'm sanding to those guys. Created around the parliamentary front against homophobia, gay front there. What these people have to offer to society? Gay marriage? Adoption of children? Say that if their young, one day, they have a son who is gay is cool? "
Jair Bolsonaro

Asked what he thought of the homosexual movement, who accuse him of homophobia, he said:

"I'm sanding to those guys. Created around the parliamentary front against homophobia, gay front there. What these people have to offer to society? Gay marriage? Adoption of children? Say that if their young, one day, they have a son who is gay is cool? These folks have nothing to offer. "

Despite the criticism, said Bolsonaro have nothing against homosexuals do "between four walls." "I have nothing to do. Each one does what he wants with his hairy little body within four walls. What they have to offer does not interest me. Now I do not want the audience to create LGBT curriculum for public schools from first grade. "

Quotas
The MP also criticized bills that would establish quotas for gays in public education. "Maria del Rosario, the Department of Human Rights, launched here the National Human Rights for the LGBT audience, establishing quotas for homosexual teacher first degree. Creates scholarship for young homosexual. Creates a paid internship for young homosexual. Now, besides a variety of assessments that we have today, will have quota for gays, "he said.

The MP also criticized the singer Preta Gil saying she has "no credibility" to talk about ethics. After viewing the program in which Bolsonaro answers a question about dating with black women, Preta Gil tweeted Bolsonaro sue that "attorney driven, I am a Black woman, strong and go to the end against the MP, Racist, Homophobic, disgusting ".

"Everybody who want to enter the process is fair. The way to solve problems is through the courts. Now, what example she has for life ethics charge? If you go on her blog, is written there that she has participated in sex acts with other women, part of Fucking, "he said.

Bolsonaro said he feared losing the seat on the Human Rights Committee of the Board. "They who in my chair is the leader of my party," he said, adding that it will not stop defending their ideas. "Soldier goes to war and are afraid to die a coward. I am here to defend my ideas. (...) I will not cower per share of Preta."

When asked about whether it is racist, he said: "Racist, me? Just poor in the military, how can I be racist?"
