The latest push: "Gay" clubs for kids in middle schools.
http://massresistance.com/ ^ | 05/24/2014 | n/a

Posted on 05/23/2014 9:15:14 PM PDT by massmike

The homosexual-transgender movement is working hard to indoctrinate schoolchildren as young as possible. By far, the most effective way is to get them into school-based "gay" clubs that are run by activist, often radical, adults, but though otherwise unsupervised. They have been working at this for several years (see our 2008 report) but are now ramping up their efforts considerably.

We reported last week, on this year's annual GLSEN Conference in Boston which brought together LGBT teachers, activists, and supportive administrators to discuss their latest tactics for the schools.

A prominent part covered strategies for setting up "gay-straight alliance" (GSA) clubs in as many middle schools as possible, given that most high schools now have them.

At that conference, there were kids as young as 11 and 12, and that younger age group was clearly the focus of much of the conference.

Middle school are such an important target that GLSEN recruited an activist "LGBT" middle school student to address the conference's opening session. She said she's bisexual (in middle school!) and that her sister is lesbian.

The girl spoke about how she helped organize the "Day of Silence" in her middle school. She said that one teacher was reluctant to put up the posters because of parent conferences that evening, saying that parents might not be comfortable seeing it. The girl labeled the teacher "ignorant" and said the teacher is "no longer working at the school" (which brought a cheer).

She added that "kids are figuring out who they are younger than ever" (i.e., being persuaded to self-identify as L, G, B, or T) and that "we need to create a safe environment for them in the lower grades." This was a mantra that was repeated again and again in the conference. ("Safe environment" is the Orwellian term for a school that aggressively enforces pro-"LGBT" sexual ideology and suppresses all dissent.)

Given that middle school students would not have these ideas and talking points on their own, this shows how well the adult activists instruct them.

The LGBT movement is getting serious about the lower grades. One of the prominent workshops at the GLSEN conference was "Starting a Middle School GSA."

At first glance, a "gay" club for middle school students would seem beyond something even most liberals would buy into. But that's simply another challenge for the movement to overcome. After all, it wasn't too long ago that ANY "gay" club at all, even in high school, was beyond the pale.

Here is how the conference program listed it:

3.1 Starting a Middle School GSA: A Sustainable, Grassroots Approach Practical advice and encouragement for students, staff, parents and community members who would like to establish a sustainable GSA in their local middle school.

Presenter(s): Anna Watson, Friends of the Ottoson Middle School [Arlington, MA] GSA

This workshop gave step-by-step instructions by a seasoned activist.

The presenter, Anna Watson, started out by saying that she believes that "coming out" is a "life-saving adventure" and that kids are coming out at younger and younger ages. Thus, they need support groups to help them do that.

She told the workshop attendees that she has been an "LGBTQ" activist and organizer for several years. In particular, she is interested in starting GSA-type groups for young people.

Anna Watson gave out this card at the workshop. She is no casual activist, obviously.

She said that in city schools there are lots of GSAs, but it's different in the suburbs. This is likely because the parents are more attentive to what's happening in the schools. She used the term "suburban gap" and said that just a few people with a lot of energy can make it happen.

Her goal at the Ottoson Middle School in Arlington, Mass., was to put in a GSA with "permanent club" status -- with a line item in the school budget for financial support.

At first, the principal was resistant, even though Arlington is a very liberal town.

The homosexual movement has found that a very effective approach for overcoming resistant school officials is using a petition as a pressure tactic, along with other maneuvers.

Watson's tactic was to do incremental, smaller things to set up an informal GSA and have it become active as much as possible in the school. They would get everything else in place so that there would be no procedural or other excuse not to allow it. Then they would go over the head of the principal and blitz the superintendent with a petition -- with as large a force as necessary -- to push it over the top with a demand it be given permanent "club" status in the school.

That strategy worked perfectly. Here's the timeline of events that Watson described:

1. Starting in the fall of 2010, Watson began discussing it with the principal. Since the principal had an interest in anti-bullying, Watson positioned it as an anti-bullying group.

2. Spring 2011: Watson established an "informal" GSA group at the school that met every other week. She submitted a grant to the local "Arlington Education Fund" for funding.

3. Fall 2011: The grant was awarded from the local group. The GSA's outside activities, including a stipend to the adult staff advisor, were now funded and it started meeting every week.

4. Spring 2012: The GSA began giving out "Human Rights" awards to students at the school. They also attended the GLSEN Conference that year, brought in "educational" groups, and established a "peer leader" program in the school.

5. Fall 2012: They persuaded the principal's discretionary fund, the PTO, and the Parent Advisory Council to give the GSA funding. They also had volunteers raise money in the community.

6. Fall 2013: The petition was put together and formally presented to the Superintendent, accompanied by a lot of pressure. The superintendent easily capitulated and granted the GSA permanent club status and a budget item in the school budget. They achieved their goals.

The principal and any other staff who might have been resistant were completely steamrolled. It's a strategy that can be replicated at other schools where there is any significant resistance.

Many of the other people at the workshop were experienced GSA activists. Some of their remarks and ideas on starting a GSA were interesting:

* Some schools have made it easier by having a less overt title, such as calling it an "affinity" group rather than a GSA.

* One person said, "For school clubs, no permission slips are needed. Thus parents do not know. The same is true for GSAs. You don't have to let your parents know. There is a sort of goodwill around it."

* They always say that GSA's are about "school safety" and suicide prevention. They also remember to make a point to say that GSAs "are not about sex."

* One teacher recommended that the GSA follow the GLSEN "Ally week" program. (See more on that below.)

How to get kids to come to their first GSA meeting? Most middle school kids would not normally think of going to a "gay" club. So the LGBT activists use a variety of tricks and misleading tactics. Once the kids are there, it's easier to persuade or pressure them to keep coming back.

Here are some of the ideas brought up by activists at the workshop:

* Announcing a "cheese & food" party.

* Getting the school football coach to come is a great draw for bringing kids to a GSA meeting.

* One school put up posters with the message: "You don't have to be gay to be in the GSA."

What is Watson's next project? Apparently, her next goal is to set up AGLY ("Arlington Gay and Lesbian Youth") which would probably be a youth/adult "gay" club not connected with the school. There are several of those around the state, supported at least in part by taxpayers.

In our experience going back nearly twenty years working with parents and kids, the GSAs in the schools are emotionally poisonous and physically dangerous to vulnerable kids, many of whom have serious psychological issues to deal with. And GSAs are often run by radical "gay" adults who themselves are psychologically dysfunctional.

GSAs persuade students that homosexuality, transgenderism, etc., is perfectly normal to engage in. They take troubled kids and tell them that if they feel "different" or that they "don't fit in" then they're probably really "gay" or "transgender." This causes enormous trauma down the road. We've seen that these kinds of "clubs" lead kids into engaging in perverse sexual activities.

But additionally, a purpose of GSAs is to indoctrinate the kids (including those calling themselves "straight") in the radical ideas of the LGBT movement, which they term "queer theory." Most people are not aware just how extreme this is. Then the GSA leaders have the kids spread those ideas to the rest of the school through events like the "Day of Silence", "Gay History Month", and "Transgender Awareness Day."

When getting this training, the kids are told that this helps them become "allies" of the LGBTs. The concept of being an "ally" pushed very hard throughout the schools. It becomes another identity for the kids in their fight for so-called social justice.

At the GLSEN Conference, a "training" pamphlet, titled "Ally Packet" was given out. It's a pretty frightening example of what the LGBT movement teaches children, and what parents know almost nothing about.

Here are just a few examples and excerpts from the 8-page pamphlet. THIS is what the LGBT movement is teaching schoolchildren:

What is an Ally? An ally is a member of the dominant social group who takes a stand against social injustice directed at target group(s) - for example .. . heterosexual individuals who speak out against heterosexism and homophobia. An ally works to be an agenda of social change rather than an agenda of oppression.

Characteristics of an ally Recognizing that unlearning oppressive beliefs is a lifelong process.

Appropriate Group Terminology Genderqueer: A term used by individuals, especially transgender youth, who identify as neither male nor female, or as both, and who often seek to blur gender lines.

Appropriate Social Justice Terminology Gender-Normative Privilege: The benefits and advantages that gender-normative people receive in genderist culture.

Inappropriate Terminology Homosexual: A clinical term for gay men and sometimes lesbians. Transvestite: An outdated clinical term for crossdressers.

What are Biphobia, Homophobia, and Transphobia? Example of Biphobia: Believing that bisexuals are confused or indecisive about their sexuality. Example of Transphobia: Believing that cross-dressing is a sexual perversion or that people who cross-dress do so for sexual gratification.

How to Be an Ally to LGBT People Validate people's gender expression. For example, if a person assigned male at birth identifies as female, refer to that person as "she" and use her chosen name. Educate yourself about LGBT histories, cultures, and concerns. Support and involve yourself in LGBT organizations and causes.

What is Heterosexual Privilege? You can belong to the religious denomination of your choice and know that your sexuality will not be denounced by its religious leaders. You can expect to see people of your sexuality positively presented on nearly every television show and in nearly every movie.

Myths and Realities of LGBT Life Myth: The majority of child molesters are gay men. Reality: Very few gay men molest children. Myth: Bisexual men are largely responsible for the spread of HIV/AIDS to heterosexual women. Reality: This stereotyping of bisexual men ignores the realities of AIDS. It is unsafe sexual practices and needle-sharing behavior, not membership in a particular group, that spreads HIV.

In Massachusetts, once these "clubs" are set up, they get substantial organizational and financial help from the state. This will likely become more prevalent in other states.

Among other things, the Mass. State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education maintains a staff to make sure that the GSA clubs across the state are properly organized and that the school is cooperating with them. The Department also provides training for GSA adult leaders.

In addition, the state-funded Mass LGBTQ Youth Commission goes into the schools and works directly with students and pushes LGBT programs statewide.

Just the beginning The GSAs and the "training" are, unfortunately, just the foundation of what the LGBT movement is doing in the nation's high schools and now, the middle schools.

In upcoming posts we will reveal more from the 2014 GLSEN Conference. As we've said, most people are completely uninformed of what the LGBT movement does with schoolchildren . . . and where this leads beyond the school doors.

ANYONE who tolerates this CRAP, may they suffer the WRATH of God.

This is what we get when we FAIL to OBEY God.
For it is written: Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

"Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect
that God is just,
that his justice cannot sleep forever."

The gays have learned how they can have all the pedophile sex they want by herding your kids like sheep and taking them along for camping trips or including them in “activities”...

Ummm, well, she’s clearly not a professional, since her business card is just a piece of paper stuck to the back of a yugioh card.

A friend in Boston told me he saw a guy who looked “similar to George Harrison circa 1970” wearing a frilly skirt a few days ago. I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or not. It must have been quite the scene.

The young ones are much easier to groom. This is how homosexuality is propagated. A 5th grader doesn’t “know” that they are homo unless they have been molested by an older person or “brought in” by peers.

This is pedophile grooming. The homosexuals get outraged when mentioned next to pedophiles but they are grooming children cause they know homosexuals aren’t born so.

Next a homosexual effort to lower the age of consent and end laws that punish adults who prey sexually on children

Not only is homosexuality a violation of God’s law, it is a violation of Natural Law. Homosexuality is a disorder in the process of natural selection where the fittest selected is the wrong sex.

For a number of years rogue priests ran this kind of experiment in the Catholic church. Just look at the horrors they perpetrated on the Church. Now the same thing is coming in spades to the local middle school. Fun and games for the taxpayers once the fully justified child abuse law suits start being filed.

Just a few short years ago any "educator" who would establish a homosexual club for 7th-graders would have been subject to prosecution and likely jail time, and scorned by citizens for abusing young children by attacking their innocence.

Now, it's just something that's generally accespted as part of the middle school curriculum.

Does anybody else remember during the 1970’s, when the homosexual community was pleading that they did not want to indoctrinate our kids, they just wanted to teach in our schools? If we let them teach, they would not do anything to influence the kids. They are proving now that they lied.

True. Now, if you object to letting your boys go on camping trips with homosexuals you are a hater.
