Mexican politicians identified as women to get around rule that 50% of party candidates must be female 🤣
· May 26, 2021 ·

This is what happens when you play the "equity" game and force stupid quotas on people:

Yes, you read that right: A left-leaning political party with entirely male candidates managed to register by having half the men identify as women.

Before you rush to judge, let me point out that Jesus said "judge not" and you are a bigot if you keep these men from expressing their true inner selves!

18 candidates from the Fuerza por México (FxM) party registered as male applicants for various positions in Tlaxcala before the local electoral authority, but they observed the breach of gender parity, for which they decided to "self-register" as women to get the forms to comply with that affirmative action.

Some lawmakers, including one named Dora Rodríguez Soriano, immediately pushed back, but were immediately challenged by those who said you can't question a person's identity!

However, her counterparts Denisse Hernández Blas, Juan Carlos Minor Márquez and Erika Periañez refuted her with the argument that she cannot question the self-ascription of a person.

Although trans activists got angry, the party's registration was ultimately confirmed.

Way to be ahead of the times, Mexico! So progressive!

Oh, if you're wondering, this has happened before:

Mexico adopted the rule that 50% of candidates in a party must be women back in 2013.

But what happens when a party can't get enough interested and qualified women to run, or if they're just opportunistic (like 99% of politicians in human history)?

Just play the gender and sexuality card!

Our world is now a parody. For a healthy dose of sanity, I'll leave you with a clip from Jordan Peterson talking about why gender quotas – whether in politics or any other job field – is fundamentally dumb!
