I wish more of you spoke spanish or that I wasn't so pissed so I could translate this for you. I will tell you however what the main point is.
A few weeks ago I read about some news about the biology book for secondary school (for kids around 12 years of age) published not by the national regulatory secretariat
in Mexico (SEP, Secretaría de Educación Pública) but by the state of Guanajuato.
The argument this office had —and they were proud of it— was that Guanajuato's morals were better than those found in the other states and thus could not accept such immoralities as having their children exposed to images of the human sexual apparatuses and information about contraception, so they decided to make their own unauthorized Biology book that removed these vile things and spoke instead of virginity, family and how the only 100% effective way of not getting AIDS was abstinence.
This pissed me off until I read, about one week later, that these books would be pulled off because they had not been approved by the SEP.
The news today are the ones I cannot believe.
People from organizations related to the Mexican politic right
have burned the books provided by the national secretariat (SEP) because as one person says: "These books do not educate, all they do is promote promiscuity between young people and incite them to use contraceptive methods". And also "The SEP, in the books, is forcing my children to use condoms, while what I want for them is not to do anything until marriage".
I am as angry as I am scared and ashamed.
