The controversial Miraflores article titled "Preventing Being Gay - Yes You Can!' (

A prestigious school group in Mexico has come under attack after publishing a homophobic article in its online magazine. "Mira," published by the private Catholic school group Miraflores, published an article titled "Preventing Homosexuality - Yes You Can!" written by Ricardo Sada Fernández. Deeply offensive in tone, the article claims that sex has only one "divine" goal, procreation, and then goes on to expound various methods for preventing homosexuality in young children.

Miraflores' article has provoked outrage across Mexican social media. The prestigious school group has schools around the country including Mexico City, Cuernavaca and Monterrey, and was even attended by Mexican Presdient Enrique Peña Nieto's daughter Paulina. The article recommends ways to "stabilize the sexual identity of children"; recommends giving adequate examples to a child and also advising that if there is a "an appropriate masculine role model" absent, then another one should be found.
