'Gender identity' in Mexico

On March 24th, 2022 the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in the Sciences and Humanities (CEIICH), which belongs to the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), hosted the forum “Necessary Clarifications about the Categories of Sex and Gender” despite the various intends by gender identity activists to cancel it arguing “transphobia”. The participants were the prestigious academics and feminists: Marcela Lagarde y de los Ríos, Amelia Valcarcel, Alda Facio and Andrea Medina; Aimee Vega Montiel and Angelica de la Pena were moderators.

More than 5 000 people, mostly women, watched the event live, and many of them supported it. Three days after, the video on Facebook had reached 27 000 views and more than 36 000 on Youtube.

Marcela Lagarde spoke about Simone de Beauvoir´s legacy and how her book “The Second Sex” is still valid nowadays. Amelia Valcarcel questioned how if sex is something so difficult to recognise, “In Afghanistan they perfectly know who to prohibit from going to school." Alda Facio revealed that the word “feminism” is practically prohibited in the United Nations. Andrea Medina talked about the dangers of having the State ruling our identity. There was literally nothing that could be interpreted as hate speech. However, 'gender identity' activists are trying to silent feminists and accusing UNAM and CEIICH of being “transphobic” for allowing these women to speak. They are now demanding that the CEIICH Director Mauricio Sanchez Menchero is removed, and held a violent protest on campus a few days after the event took place.

2021

WDI Mexico delivered a letter to Mexico City Congress, stating how harmful the pending “trans kids bill” would be if passed. The next day the Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum, published a decree for 12 year-olds onward to change the sex box in their birth certificate. Trans activists are happy but not entirely satisfied because they don’t want any kind of age limitation for self-ID, so they will keep pushing for it to be passed, now with the newly appointed legislature.
