A bus in Madrid raised a storm of anger among the public with an inscription on its board reading «Boys have a penis. Girls have a vagina. Do not be deceived». Many have found this statement provocative. However, do not worry: this bus will never rich the streets of Barcelona. At least it is promised on Twitter by the city mayor Ada Colau. «There is no place for LGBT – phobia printed on the buses in Barcelona. We want our children to grow up in freedom and not being attacked by hatred», – she wrote.
This “educational” campaign – is a work of the Catholic organization Hazte Oir, which actively fights against abortion and believes that children should not be allowed to change their gender. This religious activist campaign has incurred wrath not only of the LGBT community and organizations that help children with the problems of sex determination but also the authorities: the prosecution asked the city court to open the proceeding. According to the prosecution, the appearance of this bus on the city streets triggered «a violation of public order» and generated «a feeling of uncertainty and fear among children and adults because of their sexual identity or orientation». In the end, with the order of the court, the police arrested a white bus on the outskirts of the Spanish capital. The court will conduct an investigation to evaluate whether the acts of the adherents of Catholicism are a crime of hate.
The head of Hazte Oir Ignacio Arzuaga described it as a «totalitarian approach of the totalitarian state» and announced that he is going to sue the police for the vehicle theft.
