The LGBT lobby has been trying for years to have alleged homophobia and transphobia defined as crimes against humanity. The key is the Treaty of Rome, which establishes gender-based persecution as a crime against humanity.
Indeed, persecuting women for the fact of being women, like persecuting a certain race for being of that race, must be considered a crime against humanity.
Under this pretext, the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court considers that not respecting sexual orientation and gender identity should be considered gender-based persecution and therefore a crime against humanity.
Stretching the argument, affirming that a man is a man, that a woman is a woman, that men and women are complementary and that the family is the basic cell of society could be considered disrespectful to sexual orientation and gender identity and therefore a persecution on the basis of gender and, in turn, a crime against humanity. Take that!
Of course this ideological double somersault does not enjoy the consensus that the LGBT lobby wanted. Morocco, on behalf of the 54 countries of the African group, has already expressed its reservations:
The legitimate concerns of all member states should not be ignored. Neither should the warnings not to impose party views or legal theories or definitions that are not internationally accepted.
The Holy See has also taken a position asking the states to reject the alleged redefinition of the concept of “gender”:
My delegation rejects the decision of the International Law Commission not to include the definition of gender in Art. 7 of the statute governing the International Criminal Court which forms an integral part of the definition of crimes agreed at the Rome conference in 1998.
According to C-fam, the decision will be made before Thanksgiving, this November 24.
CitizenGO has launched a campaign addressed to the United Nations General Assembly asking them to respect the definition of gender in the Rome Statute and not to try to reinterpret it for ideological reasons. If you want, you can participate here.
