Through Facebook, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro accuses WHO of promoting homosexuality and child masturbation.
Similarly, on Wednesday night, minutes after publication, he deleted the message, as reported by the Folha De S. Paulo Newspaper.
So he published, “Is that the World Health Organization that many say I have to follow in the case of coronavirus?” he began.“Should we then also follow their guidelines for educational policies?”; Wrote.
Therefore, in the message, the capture of which was echoed by the Brazilian newspaper, Bolsonaro details, without citing sources, the alleged recommendations of WHO for children aged 0 to 4 years.
“Satisfaction and pleasure in touching one’s body (masturbation), expressing their needs and desires, for example, in the context of ‘playing doctors’, children have sexual feelings even in early childhood“.
While children ages 4 to 6 said WHO suggests: “A positive gender identity; joy and pleasure of touching one’s body, early childhood masturbation and same-sex relationships“.
Finally, the Brazilian president cites guidelines for children between the ages of 9 and 12: “First sexual experience“.
In contrast, the guide to which Bolsonaro refers was published in 2010 by the Federal Centre for Health Education in Germany with the European OFFICE of WHO. However, the guide is aimed at parents and not children. with the aim of helping them in the education of their children.
On the other hand, the document does not encourage children to follow the above steps at any time. What you do advise is that at those stages when minors begin to be curious and realize what a boy and girl are, parents will talk to them about it.
Also, since the beginning of the pandemic, Bolsonaro has criticized not only WHO but also its director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. On more than one occasion, he distorted Ghebreyesus’s speeches to support his speech against social detachment.
