Encaminho aos redatores do blog uma Carta Aberta à sociedade sobre o comportamento do pastor Silas Malafaia em relação ao Homossealidade. Carta de cunho humanitário e racional, que expõe brevemente as condutas não-éticas do Pastor e pede que sua licença de psicólogo seja caçada. Afirmo ainda que o Pasto em questão compara os homossexuais aos nazistas, comportamento que deve ser pensado e refletido pela sociedade, pelo conselho de psicologia, pelas organizações gays, e pelas associações ativistas de direitos humanos.
Para tal realço ainda a Declaração Universal dos Direitos Humanos da Organização das Nações Unidas onde se afirma:
“Todos os seres humanos nascem livres e iguais em dignidade e em direitos. Dotados de razão e de consciência, devem agir uns para com os outros em espírito de fraternidade.”
Conto com a colaboração de todos nessa luta pelo respeito e fraternidade.

Carta aberta ao Conselho Federal de Psicologia
Faz-se necessária alarmar a sociedade brasileira e o Conselho Federal de Psicologia sobre as práticas indevidas do pastor Silas Malafaia. As condutas de Silas Malafaia são claramente homofóbicas e demonstram sua aversão ao comportamento homossexual. Em resposta aos comentários do presidente do Grupo Gay da Bahia (GGB), o pastor Silas compara os gays aos nazistas¹. Deve-se preservar a memória e compreender a profundidade do que representou a morte de mais de 5 milhões de judeus nos campos de concentração, e de 6 milhões de pessoas nas câmaras de gás, além de torturas e perseguições. A guerra nazista foi feita sob a liderança de um homem, e um povo que se viam como superiores e desejavam a aniquilação dos que não se enquadrava em seu sistema de pensamento. O Pastor Silas Malafaia finge ignorar sua influência social no país e continua patricando condutas que incitam a discriminação e a violência. Comportamento que definitivamente não se parece com o de nenhum homossexual que nos jogos de poder opressores/oprimidos representam uma minoria. A comparação feita por Silas Malafaia desrespeita claramente CÓDIGO DE ÉTICA PROFISSIONAL DO PSICÓLOGO² onde se lê:
“PRINCÍPIOS FUNDAMENTAIS
I. O psicólogo baseará o seu trabalho no respeito e na promoção
da liberdade, da dignidade, da igualdade e da integridade
do ser humano, apoiado nos valores que embasam a Declaração
Universal dos Direitos Humanos.
II. O psicólogo trabalhará visando promover a saúde e a qualidade
de vida das pessoas e das coletividades e contribuirá para
a eliminação de quaisquer formas de negligência, discriminação,
exploração, violência, crueldade e opressão.”

Além desse fato, suas práticas homofóbicas são proibidas pelo código de conduta ética, e está claro que sua compreensão sobre a mesma, como um comportamento que pode ou não abandonado, já foram banidos pelo Conselho Nacional de Psicologia. Cito ainda:
“DAS RESPONSABILIDADES DO PSICÓLOGO
Art. 2º – Ao psicólogo é vedado:
a) Praticar ou ser conivente com quaisquer atos que caracterizem
negligência, discriminação, exploração, violência, crueldade ou
opressão;
b) Induzir a convicções políticas, filosóficas, morais, ideológicas,
religiosas, de orientação sexual ou a qualquer tipo de preconceito,
quando do exercício de suas funções profissionais;”

Diante desses fatos peço que o Conselho Federal de Psicologia bem como a sociedade não permitam que suas leis sejam claramente desrespeitadas dessa forma, e façam cumprir o regimento do código de ética de psicologia retirando a licença de psicólogo do Pastor Silas Malafaia.

Exmo. Sr.
Ophir Filgueiras Cavalcante Junior
Diretor Presidente do Conselho Federal da Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil

O Secretariado da Suprapartidária LGBT vem por meio deste encaminhar a V. Excia a Petição Permanente da Suprapartidária LGBT dirigida a Presidência do Conselho Federal da Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil.

A presente campanha de abaixo assinado é perpétua e de caráter global, ou até que a decisão do Conselho Federal da OAB seja favorável e encaminhe nossa demanda ao Secretário Geral da Nações Unidas, Ban Ki-moon, porque leva-nos a crer que nem o Executivo e nem o Legislativo brasileiros ouviriam nosso CLAMOR mesmo que partisse da Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil.

As mais de 1000 (mil) assinaturas até o presente momento encontram-se no site
http://www.peticaopublica.com.br/PeticaoVer.aspx?pi=OAB2012

e sugerimos que V. Excia tome conhecimento também das reportagens nacionais catalogadas no blog "Quem a Homofobia Matou Hoje?" como subsídio inicial para a vossa decisão.
http://homofobiamata.wordpress.com

Segue o CLAMOR em língua inglesa, objeto da campanha da comunidade LGBT do Brasil abaixo representada.

Petition to OAB in favor of sexual minorities and victims of hate crime

HELP, OAB!


The Brazilian civil society hereby represented by all minorities, warranted or not, by law force, against prejudice and discrimination come to beg OAB (Order of Attorneys of Brazil) for help, pleading with them to put in a good word with the UN and speak out against the negligence by Brazilian Executive and Legislative powers' toward LGBT people.

Our Human Rights have been systematically denied and violated through the growing influence of radical segments based on religious fundamentalism, mainly represented by evangelical Members of Parliament, who politically blackmail the Executive so it will not give course to public policies against homophobia, or to law bills that would criminalize homophobia on the same grounds as racism.

This situation of paralysis and vacuity of legal rights has brought up grave implications such as significant raise of homicides with refinement of cruelty motivated by hatred, taking the life of a homosexual every 20 hours - only in the beginning of 2012.

If nothing shall be done, Brazil will motionlessly witness the increase of homophobic murders from 266 documented crimes in 2011 to an estimated figure – if the current pace remains – of about 350 hate crimes in 2012.

We, the civil society composed of women, Afro-Descendants, foreigners, elders, disabled, LGBT people and other defenders of these minorities' Human Rights, need to have our denunciation and plead reach the United Nations.

We firmly believe that the Order of Attorneys of Brazil (OAB), as a stronghold of the democratic State, which aims at defending all Brazilian people's citizenship, has enough political and social scope to be taken into account by the most important international organization of Human Rights defense, interceding for these over 20 million oppressed people (LGBT’s 10% of the population) and urge Brazil to accomplish its inalienable commitment to human dignity applied to the totality of Brazilian people.

HELP, OAB!!!

The world needs to know what is happening in Brazil ! ! !

It is a pleasure to write for you all. My name is Helena, I'm 19 years old and I live in S達o Paulo, Brazil.

Through the facebook, I follow your struggle for homossexual's people recognition. I know how hard it is, and I do appreciate your work. Congratulations for it.

Today, I am here for a really sad worrying thing, and I want ask for your help:
Some weeks ago, a man called Marco Feliciano, who is an evangelical priest and also deputy, was selected to be the President of Human Rights Comission at Chamber of Deputies.

That wouldn't be a problem, if the man havent said how homophobic and racist he is. He declared via twitter and videos on youtube that he is against gay people, and also said that "Africa is cursed by God. This is the reason we have so many troubles there, as AIDS", and etc.

This is a disgrace to the Brazilian people, and we are all very embarrassed about it.
I'm here to ask your help: we are moving a campaign to say WHY MARCO FELICIANO DO NOT REPRESENT ME. This consists on creating a simple plaque saying (I am black / white / gay / not gay / student / teacher / mother / feminist / catholic / atheist / whatever you want! / and Marco Feliciano do not represent me!)

We are getting so much plaques, from ALL OVER THE WORLD, but we need more! I talked with an international celebrity and famous drag queen called Jujubee, who is american, that will help us on this campaign. Please, give us some support!

I believe this is not a local fight, but an universal fight, because we are fighting for humanity.

Thank you for your support. It is very important for Brazilian people and all communities in the world.

Best Regards,

Helena Vitorino

Well, I'm brazilian, male homosexual and also a tourism bachelor. I have my own blog which describes my experiences throughout travel accross Brazil and New Zealand. I wondered if I publish my picture there, because its a public blog. But I feel courage enough to put there some days ago. It's true that violence against LGBT people is, unfortunately, a real problem in Brazil. I know about it, but we get used to it. For example, if you are a discreet LGBT, probably people will do not know your sexual feelings. Although these problems, Brazil is a great country to live nowadays and its people hospitality is very good. LGBT people are always welcome here. There are some tips to avoid violence, in general. I mean, before travelling to here, people may search the places that are safe, places that are unsafe at the city they wanna visit. I invite LGBT friends here to visit my blog and get some tips about my "brazilian way of life"!

I come here to ask you all to help preventing Marcelo Dourado, a gay-hater, neo nazi hooligan from winning Big Brother Brazil 10. He is one step away from the final (there are 5 people left in the house, out of which 2 will be evicted before the final).

He has caused much controversy throughout the show such as saying heterosexuals don't contract HIV, by asking other participants to not talk about homosexuality in front of him, by shouting he would have broken the fingers and beaten her up and sent her to hospital if it weren't for the cameras when he argued with a girl in the house, among other deplorable things.

He has a swastica tattoo and is a typical thug, but has managed to remain in the show despite being nominated by the house because, sadly, he has a considerable following. But the reason of his strength lies in his Dourado Mafia, a group of 700,000 followers who vote for his opponents to leave 24 hours a day when voting is open. As a result, all the 4 times he was nominated by the house the voting record was broken and his opponent ended up leaving the house (one of them reached 93 million votes).

Now he has been nominated again along with his biggest rival in the house: Dicesar, a homosexual, who is also a drag queen. This is an early final, since they are the 2 favourites to win the show and at the same time fierce enemies. Both have large following, but according to all polls Dourado is by far the favourite.

That's why I come here to ask you all for help, it would be a disgrace if someone like that won Big Brother, not only for Brazil but for mankind. Brazil has the highest rate of gay murder in the world (yes, Brazil is the country of contrasts: it has the largest gay parade in the world, it has recognised many gay rights, but some regions are still very backwards), and if Dourado wins it it will be a major setback. This has achieved great proportions in Brazil to the point where many see it as a plebiscite which if he wins it, it will mean homophobia prevailed. I have been voting all night and masses of people are voting against him, but at the same time his supporters are many and they are truly fanatical.

As a gay sympathiser and believer that a hater like him shouldn't win the prize, I beg you for help. This was supposed to be the most sexually liberal Big Brother Brazil edition ever, with 1 lesbian, several gays and a bisexual man and lots of sympathisers, but Dourado has managed to steal the spotlight and become the central figure.

Please follow the link:

http://bbb.globo.com/BBB10/Home/0,,17400,00.html,

then click on the sentence just below the photos, and then vote on DOURADO (you have to click on him then go and click on VOTAR, after typing in the anti-spam words) the nazi on the right. The vote is to choose the person you want OUT, not IN. You can vote as many times as you want or can. Voting has just opened now and will go on until today Saturday evening, when one of them will be evicted. Please vote many, many times, his supporters are voting 1000, 2000, 3000 times each.

Without your help this guy will surely win this voting again and then go on to win the final.

Thank you!

'I'm sanding to these people, "says Bolsonaro about gay movement
He also said Preta Gil has 'credibility' to talk about ethics.
Mr linked, on TV, with black women dating the 'promiscuity'.

Nathan Finch and Mariana Oliveira G1 in Brasilia

Mr Jair Bolsonaro (PP-RJ) said on Wednesday (30), during the funeral of former Vice President Jose Alencar, who is "sanding" to the homosexual movement. He was involved in a controversy this week after binding in a television program, dating to the black "promiscuity." The deputy explained that he wanted to say that dating is gay promiscuity.

On the show "CQC", TV Bandeirantes, aired on Monday night (28), said he would not discuss Bolsonaro "promiscuity" when asked by singer Preta Gil, about how he would react if his son dating a black woman.

Deputy associate with black women on TV dating the 'promiscuity'

The question, previously recorded, was submitted under the program entitled "People want to know:" If your child fall in love with a black, what would you do? " Bolsonaro replied: "Black, I will not argue with promiscuity whatever. I do not run that risk, and my children were very polite and did not live in an environment like, unfortunately, it's yours."

"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?"

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

INTRODUCTION to My Book .

Pukish Puck & Magic
Magical story from East to West .

www.Puckishpuck.com
A Lesbien fairy Tale .


A soft breeze was playing on the wind, gently caressing all of nature's bounty, lilting over leaves and occasionally making a bold sashay through the upper branches of the trees just to be noticed. A very low, milky moon seemed to sigh in the sky and the river water trickled and tinkled, making a sound like angels playing heavenly chords. Annu was sitting under an old tree singing a song and playing with Puck's hair. Puck was lost in her counting of the stars on her fingers. "Arti has left us, Annu; we are never going to see her again any more, I mean never," Puck said sadly.

"You know she has become an angel and she is with you - closer than you know. One day you'll become an angel too, just in a different way with getting married and having family when you live for others," Annu said reassuringly.

"No! No -I don't want to become an angel."

"What?" Annu enquired, her voice tinged with disbelief.

"No, not an angel; I want to be a bird," Puck replied matter-of-factly.

"Why?"

"What would I do with wings if I could not feel the wind?"

"Hum that's interesting, you know I have given all of my grandchildren a piece of jewelry and to my sons and daughter I have even given them a piece of property but to you today I want to give you something that is most important to me, you can say it's a part of me." With saying that,

Annu put her palm on Puck's eye, "I give you my dream."

Puck clutched on to her hand with her own small fingers. "Wow!"

"But be careful - it will take you very, very far away. Your way will not be easy but full of struggle and pain and suffering but the secret of its success is that you just have to keep walking and following...you hear. You will have to do this until my dream comes true. My dream for you is wings and this is what you will get from me." Puck smiled innocently and hugged her tightly. Annu gave a heavy sigh and said, "It is not only a dream but a huge responsibility on your small shoulders." "But how will I know that your dream has come true?"

Annu smiled very wisely, looked in Puck's eyes and said, "Because where and when my dream comes true, there and then will be the start of a fairytale of your own. Then you'll realize that you have ultimately become a part of a magical dream and will live happy ever after."

There are three openly gay contestants in the Big Brother Brazil house this season: a 20-year-old boy, a drag queen, and a lesbian. I did not necessarily expect any of them to be the favorites to win the R$ 1.5 million prize, but what I also did not expect is the fact that the only homophobe in the house is current favorite to win the big prize, perhaps a sign that the majority of viewers across the country are not ready for all the gay exposure on the show.

Over the course of the last 50 days, Marcelo Dourado, a castaway from season 3 of Big Brother Brazil who was brought back to the show this season, has made sure to let Brazilian viewers know that he is not only homophobic, but also ignorant, and misogynistic. Earlier in the season he caught the media attention by saying that heterosexual men could not contract the HIV virus even by having sex with HIV positive women because AIDS only affected gay men. According to him, the HIV virus is spread exclusively through homosexual sex. After that statement, which was obviously addressed by Globo network, Dourado refused to have conversations which involved any gay topics saying that it disgusted him. He also said that being called gay is as offensive as being called a thief or a nazi, which I find insulting and repulsive.


Tomorrow Dourado is up for elimination against two homosexual contestants, and even though I know he is the current favorite I hope the gay community in Brazil will make a strong campaign to get him sent home. It is not that I want the gay contestants to stay, but I do want Dourado out of the show. Asap. Even if you are not Brazilian, I ask you to take the time and vote for him to be eliminated. It would be great to see the gay community get together in the next two days to prove that we stand against everything that Dourado has been saying, and the homophobic agenda he's been promoting daily on national television.

After the jump, a video with some of Dourado's most homophobic moments so far on the show.

If homosexuals<a href="http://xghvnhsmlxq.com"> aectpced</a> that people don't mind them having a civil ceremony and a civil partnership and not insist on calling them a wedding' and a marriage' there would be much less opposition to them.Similarly, if homosexuals kept their sex-lives for the privacy of their own homes and not insist on kissing and groping in public, they'd be<a href="http://xghvnhsmlxq.com"> aectpced</a> into communities much more readily.It's as if they are trying to antagonise people, then they call them homophobes, bigots etc if they dare say anything against them.
