Computer cables and telephone lines were cut, documents torn, office material overturned, and every faucet in the building was left running.

The Luiz Carlos Ruas Citizenship Center, an organization dedicated to articulating public policies in favor of the LGBT community in the center of Sao Paulo, was vandalized with the perpetrators urinating and defecating on the floor and documents.

Apart from the soil and stench of bodily excrements, computer cables and telephone lines were cut, documents torn, office material overturned, and every faucet in the building was left running.

A public statement released by the center read, in part, “When those who are responsible for this invasion defecate in our workplace” and “tear up documents to wipe themselves, they demonstrate the contempt they have for what that paperwork represents and attest to in the defense of human rights and advocacy of citizenship.”

Though the police have been informed about the incident, the perpetrators have yet to be identified, according to Revista Forum.

Adding to LGBT attacks, Joao Otavio de Noronha, a magistrate for Brazil's Supreme Court of Justice commented, “Nowadays, the heterosexual is becoming a minority. We have no more rights.”

Still referencing the LGBT community as the few among society, he added that a “constitutional judge cannot be guided solely by minorities.”

De Noronha's statements came during an event titled, “Judicial Activism,” and echo those made by congressman and next year's presidential hopeful, Jair Bolsonaro.

For his part, the latter has been quoted in the past as saying, “I'd be incapable of loving a homosexual son ... I'd prefer he die in an accident,” and "Women should earn less because they get pregnant.” Moreover, he said that the Brazilian dictatorship's “mistake was torturing and not killing” while saying former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet “should have killed more people.”
