Protecting Sexual Minority Youth
or Promoting LGBT?
March 10, 2017
Today's news is littered with stories of LGBT youth. Their struggles and perceived need of protection are front page daily. The cause is everywhere and the issues are multidimensional. No stone is left unturned to seek out, find and meet the need of LGBT youth. It only makes sense that the focus of those wanting to ensure the safety and rights of sexual minority youth would focus in schools and the arena of education. Right? But are we getting the real story and have the outcomes intended for children in public education been clearly stated. Actually the goals and outcomes have been stated but are not part of the primary narrative for public consumption.
Since 2009 the Department of Education has become a hotbed of LGBT activism and this trickles down to the local school campus. Former President Obama, according to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute, appointed almost 30 activists within the U S Department of Education. This was in addition to hundreds more in every federal agency. The most notable or perhaps notorious of these appointees was Kevin Jennings the homosexual founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. GLSENs has helped form and promote gay clubs on Jr High and High school campuses across the country. These clubs rally and train LGBT identifying youth to be activist and to engage "straight youth" as allies in on campus clubs called the Gay Straight Alliance. These groups are hosted by sympathetic teachers and advocate for straight kids sympathies and support of LGBT rights.
Let us get this straight, a nationally known homosexual activist in his mid-50s, with funding from foundations and corporations, has had a federal job in the Department of Education to help spread his organization's ideology and narrative to train activist youth and engender sympathies among straight students in your local school. It is likely your child or grandchild has been influenced by this effort. Activists boast that "you will be less likely to resist change if you know and like someone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual, or trans."
So what is the change they are talking about? To put it plainly the goal is to redefine sexual norms for the next generation. The method is simple. You create an atmosphere where it is cool in school to be LGBT. Then you engender sympathies and shame anyone who does not see it your way. Then you add the concept of Q. You may have noticed the list of sexual minorities in the sexual alphabet soup is growing. Q was added by the more radical elements to own the slur of the word Queer and thus empower the in your face approach of the radicals. But in 2012 a new meaning for Q was added and at times you will see LGBTQQ so both meanings are represented. It is hard to follow but it is almost certain your children know what all the letters stand for. What is the second Q? It stands for Questioning and who added it? Planned Parenthood, the unseen big sister activist group working in education. Their mission and definition of Q is to promote "Questioning." The assertion is that it is "normal" to question your sexuality, orientation and gender "at any age" and questioning should lead to "exploration" of your sexuality, orientation and gender. "You will know when you are ready." This is their only qualification for age of consent to embark on your personal sexual journey.
Make no mistake. The goal in education is to make allies of your straight kids and encourage as many students as possible to explore the sexual boundaries and redefine them for themselves. This is the new normal and the standard for sexual ethics determined for public education. The hope is to achieve the goal Human Rights Campaign boasted of in 2014 "to create a thriving LGBTQ population." Getting the facts and going beyond the public narrative to the intended outcomes is a must for parents and grand parents lest we fail to see where LGBTQ activism in education intends to take our children and what it means for their sexual futures.
Redefining Love on Valentine’s Day—Or Is It Just Sex You’re Speaking Of?
12 February, 2017
Since 2014, a little-known Valentines conference has been held called “Time To Thrive.” It is a youth conference promoted for LGBTQ youth and youth serving professionals by a mega Equality group which itself remains unknown to many. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has become a power player within LGBTQ rights and marriage equality movement with a $50 million dollar yearly budget and multiple organizations including a political PAC.
What may be the most obscure arena for the HRC and is its focus in education? Its Time to Thrive Conference, now heading into its fourth year, has an amazingly bold missions statement. It reads, “By engaging a broad audience of youth-serving professionals, including K-12 educators, mental health providers, pediatricians, religious leaders, recreational athletic coaches, and youth development staff (Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs, scout leaders etc.), we can create a thriving LGBTQ youth population.”
All Encompassing Approach
So if we are clear on this, the plan is to engage leaders in all arenas that touch youth including their education, recreation, health care and faith. This approach is unprecedented, to say the least, with funding by corporate giants like AT&T and the NEA Teachers Union. The first HRC youth conference was held in Las Vegas, a fitting place for a youth conference, we suppose. This meeting’s key note speaker was the daughter of Hillary and Bill Clinton. By the second year, 2015, the Portland, Oregon conference boasted speakers from the DOJ, HHS and Department of Education. The usual list of affirming celebs and “out” celebrity children, sports and media types provided color and breakout sessions. Some unusual guest speakers included transgendered activists as young as 10. So indeed these conferences have been unique and held annually on Valentine’s Day. The 2017 conference is scheduled for April–perhaps to allow for the Trump administration to be settled in, since this year’s Time to Thrive will be in Washington D. C., thus maximizing access to the new administration appointees.
So, What is HRC Pitching in Education?
There is a product being sold to educators and to children and it has been around since 1964. The pitch is to push the overhaul of sex education for K 5-12. The plan is called Comprehensive Sexuality Education. The origin of the overhaul of sex-ed is a Plan Parenthood spin-off financed by Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner. Since the mid 60s, the idea of abstinence-based sex education has been repugnant to revolutionaries like Sexuality Education Council for the United States (SIECUS). The past administration has given the green light and tons of tax dollars to empower Planned Parenthood for this final stretch to full implementation of the radical overhaul. HRC has become a valued new partner in the push to redefine sexual norms, family, procreation/sexual/human rights in terms which serve the great global dreams of sexual liberation and birth rate containment.
What CSE asserts is that teaching abstinence is unhealthy (yes you read that correctly), non LGBTQ inclusive, gender biased, and dishonest. Activist legislators have kept a CSE mandate bill in the congressional que throughout the last eight years. How this law would impact education can be seen here. Federal funding for abstinence would become illegal.
So, What is Love?
Perhaps a better question is “What’s LOVE got to do with it?” when it comes to Planned Parenthood or HRC’s role in redefining sexual norms. According to the talking points on CES, it is an answer to the sexual repressive and discriminatory past. CSE is your child or grandchild’s “human right at any age” to know this liberating ideology, even against parental /family faith values while it uses your tax funds, public school system, and congressional powers to help their goals along. CSE normalizes the entire LGBTQ spectrum of sexuality. “Q” among activist culture was originally a radical owning of the word queer to empower by use of the vulgar slur. Planned Parenthood made the decision to add Q to the growing and inclusive list of sexual minorities around 2013. For them, Q stands for “Questioning” as PP asserts it is “Normal to QUESTION your sexual orientation and gender at ANY AGE.” If you are a parent concerned about your child becoming sexually active for any host of normal reasons, this is your worst nightmare. Exploration and experimentation are both encouraged and recommended.
Activist Youth Demanding Sexual Rights NOW
For those of us over 45, the women’s march in DC surrounding the Trump inauguration was reminiscent of the 60s and 70s feminist. The anatomically correct hats and spirited (raw) protest revealed the radical face of the movement many younger people had never seen. If HRC and PP have their way- this will be the face of future for YOUTH. Advocates for Youth, SIECUS , and host of other organizations have engaged to train a generation of Youth Sexual Activist. Allies and organizers have tool kits to train our children to take to the halls, campuses, streets and capitols to demand their sexual enlightenment and freedom. The 60s generation of free sex and drugs never saw this kind of organizational skills or funding to accomplish its goals. Yet we are still picking up the proverbial pieces of the last sexual revolution as the next generation is having theirs launched for them.
So, repressing youth’s sexual desires or knowledge is unhealthy even at 5 years of age. If you fall under the new heading of a sexual minority you gain special access, consideration and protection. You can go into the restroom, locker room, shower of choice based on your self-identification of the moment (which is fluid and understandably subject to change). As a sexually-educated youth you can go to the school based clinic and obtain an IUD or birth control or abortion referral at 11 years old and it will either be free or billed to your family’s insurance without their knowledge or approval required. You can go to the school website and be a click away from any and all of these activist partners and services. If you are forced to leave home because your parents do not buy into your new liberation then you can be classified as homeless LGBTQ youth and be eligible for much more protection from anti-bullying advocates like Dan Savage and his “It Gets Better” campaign.
This is the future advocated for sexualized youth according to Planned Parenthood, SIECUS , HRC, and other partners. It is a dream world with little thought of sexual predators, the sex industry, pornography (which CSE considers healthy and encourages), STDs, HIV/AIDS suicide, mental illness, drugs and human collateral damage. All those ills come from non-affirmation after all. This is Love-liberated and offered to your 5 year old as his/her human right-according to the Human Rights Campaign if you follow their values for “Thriving Youth.” LOVE, HRC style: Happy Valentine’s.
The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.
Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
