After the president of Public Broadcasting System of the Mexican State (SPR)Jenaro Villamil Rodríguez, asked the senator Lilly Tellez reading article 1 of the Political Constitution that refers to non-discrimination, the PAN member attacked him and called him corrupt.
The new confrontation between Villamil and Téllez arises as a result of the comments that the PAN legislator made about the trans community; specifically regarding the complaint of discrimination that Laura Glovera trans woman, did against elements of the security of the National Cinemathequewho allegedly forcibly removed her from the women’s bathrooms.
It was during the afternoon of Tuesday, August 13, when Téllez shared his point of view, ensuring that what the private police officers at the cultural venue did was not discrimination.
“This is NOT discrimination,The women’s bathrooms are for women. Enough of tolerating what is irrational and illogical,” he shared through X, formerly Twitter.
In this regard, this Thursday, the journalist also recommended that the senator read the Constitution.
“It wouldn’t hurt to reread article 1: Any discrimination motivated by ethnic or national origin, gender, age, disabilities, social condition, health conditions, religion, sexual preferences, opinions, marital status or any other discrimination that violates dignity is prohibited. human and has the objective of nullifying or impairing the rights and freedoms of the people”Villamil shared.
After that, Téllez could not contain his anger and responded within hours.
“Here I do make a DISCRIMINATION against Jenaro Villamil: for being corrupt, lying and for perverting the function of the media of the Mexican state,” he wrote on social networks.
Although it has been criticized and pointed out as a transphobic personTéllez maintains that at no time has he lacked respect for the trans community.
“I respect that she defines herself that way, nothing more than that she cannot enter the women’s bathroom because it is a women’s bathroom,” she reiterated in a meeting with the media yesterday afternoon.
This Thursday, she once again defended her position, calling on women to “not be afraid to express themselves.”
“Women: do not be intimidated by these baseless accusationsDon’t be silent, don’t be afraid of those who point you out just for expressing yourself, for having your own opinions and defending your spaces. Don’t be confused, follow your judgment and your sixth sense“, he stated in X.
