Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin (1983) When Megan Went Away (1983) Heather Has Two Mommies (1989) Asha's Mums (1990) Families: A Celebration of Diversity, Committment and Love (1990) Daddy's Roommate (1990) The Generous Bartleby Jones (1991) How Would You Feel if Your Dad Was Gay (1991) A Beach Party With Alexis: A Coloring Book (1991) Belinda's Boquet (1991) Gloria Goes to Gay Pride 1991) The Duke Who Outlawed Jelly Beans (1991) Families: A Coloring Book (1991) A Boy's Best Friend (1992) The Daddy Machine (1992) The Day They Put a Tax on Rainbows and Other Stories (1992) The Entertainer (1992) Saturday is Pattyday (1993) Two Moms (1993) The Zark and Me (1993) Uncle What-Is-It Is Coming to Visit (1993) One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dads, Blue Dads (1994) Anna-Day and the O-Ring (1994).

Reviews of these books, plus others reviewed earlier[1] and reviews of two books, Martin's Father published in 1977 and Lots of Mommies, published in 1983 -- which are not explicitly about gay or lesbian characters but which contain material that can be related to these themes -- will be included here. It should be noted that the 26 books to be reviewed were chosen for their emphasis on gay- and lesbian-headed families, their explicit or implicit depiction of gay or lesbian parents not gay or lesbian youth, and their appropriateness for children between the ages of two and 10. Many of the books have been published by Alyson Publications, a company which has been publishing and distributing literature for children, youths, and adults such as fiction, poetry, picture books and other genres.

Of the 26 books, one story can be used to imply a single gay father, one family book to imply a lesbian-headed family and another book to imply both a single gay- and a single lesbian-headed household. Eleven stories explicitly depict lesbian-headed families, five explicitly include gay male-headed households and four books show both lesbian- and gay-headed families. The collection of fairy tales includes, as background information to the various central themes, gay- and lesbian-headed families. One book (LOTS OF MOMMIES) includes a commune of women with no indication of the relationship among them...

We had a former homosexual speaker at our church a couple of years ago who presented an insider's view of the homosexual community. Amazing but very disturbing presentation.

The guy was HIV-positive. I can't remember what kind of job he was in as a late teenager, but it was something that landed him in a party crowd, and in very short order this straight (and obviously gullible) guy was convinced that he was really a homosexual who just didn't know it yet, and was inducted into the lifestyle. He talked about the incredible promiscuity, the outright conscious strategy-based recruitment of children, the orgies, the staggering teenage male prostitution, etc.


Thank you for posting this information. As we are well aware, homosexual recruiting is a serious problem, and this information provides additional documentation of that fact, as well as the fact that homosexual behavior is chosen.


Seven Steps to Recruit-proof Your Child

Recruit-proof your child against homosexuality

National Coming-Out Day is a day that those who are engaging in homosexuality are encouraged to announce that fact to their families, friends, employers and anyone else who will listen. It is a day that many parents fear.

If you haven't adequately educated your child about sexuality, he or she could be vulnerable, and once involved with homosexuality, escape can be difficult. Author Scott Lively has written a guide for parents who want to be pro-active called "Seven Steps to Recruit-Proof your Child." Perhaps the most important step is to understand that gay activists do recruit and that your children are at risk.

When most parents think of recruitment, they see it as the seduction of an innocent perhaps emotionally vulnerable child or youth by an older sexual predator. Today this recruitment takes place in hundreds of different ways. Gay propagandists bring their message to our children through television programs, movies, music, advertising, and through public education classrooms. Our parents never would have put up with "gay" activists coming into the schools to talk about their lifestyle, but this has become an everyday occurrence.

These sessions are no longer confined to junior high and high schools. A training video called "It's Elementary" teaches elementary school teachers how to get the "gay" message into primary grade classrooms. Books like "Daddy's Roommate" and "Heather Has Two Mommies" are all too commonplace. The National Education Association, the nation's largest teacher's union, has openly adopted guidelines for promoting homosexuality in public education and many private schools already have yielded to the pressure to present homosexuality as a normal.

Imagine what goes through the minds of 12-year-old boys and girls when a gay activist tells them that 10 percent of the population is gay, and that 10 percent of their class has this "sexual orientation." At this tender age, classrooms of teenagers and pre-teenagers, with their hormones raging, are being encouraged to follow their urges and experiment. If a child voices a question about the possibility of being gay to a teacher or other school officials, the parent most likely never will hear about it. These children often are referred to an outside "gay" counseling center run by active homosexuals.

It is more important than ever before that parents talk to their teenagers and pre-teenagers about homosexuality in a factual, but compassionate way. There is no scientific proof that one is born homosexual. It is a movement grounded in politics not science. In 1973, homosexuality was removed from the American Psychiatric Association's official list of disorders, not as a result of any scientific breakthrough, but by a campaign of intimidation and harassment. An independent poll of APA members conducted at the time showed that an overwhelming majority considered it to be a treatable disorder. Under continued pressure from homosexual activists, the APA subsequently voted to "normalize" sadomasochism and pedophilia.

Another important message to give your child, is that help is available for those who stumble. One is not born gay, and one does not have to remain in the gay lifestyle. If you need further information contact Exodus International at 206-784-7799.

An excerpt from "DECIPHERING 'GAY' WORD-SPEAK AND LANGUAGE OF CONFUSION," by Scott D. Lively, Esq.,May 25, 2002, NewsWithViews.com:

There is no shame in believing a lie until you learn the truth.

The success of so-called "gay rights" is an amazing triumph of clever deception over simple logic. When it comes to this issue, otherwise intelligent people routinely fall for arguments that just don't hold up under scrutiny. "Gay" sympathizers aren't necessarily more gullible than other people, they are simply tricked into accepting certain conclusions without first examining the underlying premises.

He who defines the terms controls the debate -- and by extension, public opinion. On this issue the terms have been defined (in many cases invented) by the talented sophists of the "gay" movement.

Sophistry, it must be noted, is the ancient Greek art of persuasion by subtly false reasoning. The key to overcoming sophistry is to simplify and clarify what the sophists have intentionally made complex and vague. That process begins by defining the terms and concepts being used in the arguments. One quickly discovers that most arguments advocating "gay rights" depend upon hidden false assumptions and deliberately ambiguous terms. It's all smoke and mirrors.

Among the most common terms and concepts in the "gay rights" debate are: homosexuality, sexual orientation, heterosexism, diversity, multi-culturalism, inclusiveness, discrimination, homophobia and tolerance. These words and phrases are used by "gay" sophists to frame the question of homosexuality as a civil rights issue. It is a context chosen to favor homosexuals to the extent that they cast themselves as victims and their opponents as oppressors, yet even within this context, "gay" arguments are easily refuted...

An excerpt from "Rosen: Gay marriage poll rigged (Wash. Post poll)"

According to a March 10 editorial masquerading as a news story in The Washington Post, the paper's most recent poll found that a majority of Americans "reject(s) amending the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriages in favor of allowing states to make their own laws." Having just seen a CBS News poll suggesting an entirely opposite public sentiment, my first reaction was to compare the wording of the respective questions. My suspicions were confirmed. The Post led respondents to its desired answer by manipulating the question...

The devil is in the false dilemma posed by the Post. The choice they offer is tendentious and misleading, exploiting the fact that most respondents probably aren't sufficiently informed on the nuances of the issue to recognize the ploy.

Supporters of various versions of a federal marriage amendment aren't proactive. They're reactive. The fight was initiated by gay activists plying liberal judges to force the issue. The first counterattack was the Defense of Marriage Act, passed overwhelmingly by Congress and signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1996.

The Defense of Marriage Act didn't ban same-sex marriage at the state level, but defined it under federal law as the union only of a man and a woman. The Defense of Marriage Act also sought to inoculate individual states from the provisions of the "full faith and credit" clause of the U.S. Constitution which might be interpreted to require every state to recognize same-sex marriages certified in any state.

The Defense of Marriage Act is the next target of gay activists, who will seek to have it overturned in the courts. In anticipation of that, the federal marriage amendment is a goal-line defense to protect individual states from being forced by federal or local courts to legally recognize same-sex marriages imposed on other states by their local courts.

The recent spate of same-sex marriages, in blatant defiance of local law, performed by sympathetic mayors in places like San Francisco is intended to further escalate the battle in the courts, the only venue where gay activists feel they can win. At the same time, this has heightened the sense of urgency for federal marriage amendment supporters...

An exceprt from "Lessons on homosexuality taking hold in U.S. schools" By Carol Innerst, THE WASHINGTON TIMES


"...Kindergartners are learning about "homophobia" as lessons about alternative lifestyles and homosexuality appear in America's elementary schools -- often without parental knowledge....

A Seattle school board member and official with the National School Boards' Association thinks third-graders are too young for a discussion of the pros and cons of homosexual marriage. "Third-graders should not be asked to contemplate something that deep and complex," says Michael Preston, chairman of the NSBA's Council of Urban Boards of Education. "I'm sure they should be allowed to marry, but I've come to that conclusion as an adult and it's not something I'd even care to think about as a third-grader."... "But you have to consider the age appropriateness of the subject matter. Young minds are sometimes like clay. We need to allow children to be children and not overly influence what they end up thinking about something." ..."

It's 1984 in Massachusetts – And Big Brother Is Gay

"... A prominent psychiatrist says the sex-ed curricula at these schools can lower children "to the level of animals" and inflict lasting harm. "Massachusetts schools' systematic promotion of homosexuality and promiscuity fosters sexual confusion and experimentation," says Nathaniel S. Lehrman, former clinical director of the Kingsboro Psychiatric Center in New York. "They dilute and trivialize [the capacity for] faithful sexual passion which should [later] be the cement of these children's marriages. Unstable youngsters may become particularly vulnerable to homosexuals who actively recruit them."

There are teachers all over North America quietly mainstreaming homosexual behavior to children as young as 5 years old. As widely reported, on "Gay Days" classes are cancelled and students led to compulsory activities where homosexuals explain their "lifestyles." The mind-control techniques are straight from Soviet schools..."

Here are a few (new and updated) GLSEN links:

An excerpt from "GLSEN Celebrates 2,000th Gay-Straight Alliance"

New York, NY – The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, is proud to announce the 2,000th student club, often called a Gay-Straight Alliance or GSA, to register with the organization. The milestone came with the formation of a GSA at Detroit Central High School in Detroit, Michigan.

“It is with immense pride that GLSEN celebrates 2,000 GSAs,” said GLSEN Executive Director Kevin Jennings. “The young people involved in these student clubs are providing an invaluable service and support system for their peers while changing the climate of their schools and communities from one where discrimination and harassment are the rule to environments where everyone learns to respect and accept all people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity / expression.”


Note - GSA's are NOT simply student "clubs" and GLSEN knows it. It's the adults in homosexual organizations such as GLSEN and PFLAG that provide the encouragement, direction, and resources for the formation of GSA's. Some GSA's are taxpayer funded, as documented here and here.

The Education Establishment And The Homosexual Agenda

With an eye for the future, the battleground for gay activists is in the schools and children are the targets, a new book, The Homosexual Agenda reveals, while developments in at least one state capitol seem to bear the authors out.

Quoted in the book is a rallying point from a 1999 Gay Lesbian Straight Educational Network (GLSEN) conference:

The fear of the religious right is that the schools of today will be the governments of tomorrow. And you know, they're right. If we do our jobs right, we're going to raise a generation of kids who don't believe the claims of the religious right.

The authors of the book, Alan Sears and Craig Osten describe a phenomenon that does more than threaten religious freedom. The 'sexual orientation community' is actively working to impose their value system upon the rest of society. The chapter entitled "Stupid Parents, 'Enlightened Kids'" is of particular interest to those who are concerned about childhood indoctrination.

Sears and Osten quote homosexual activist Chuck Jones: "This is war, so act accordingly." How is this war waged in the classroom? Gay orthodoxy is being imposed upon minor children in class as undisputable fact, rather then even the subject of controversy or debate.

A high school boy found himself made fodder for ridicule when he questioned a biology teacher's assertion that homosexuality is genetic: "What's the matter, Kyle? Are you unsure of your sexuality?" As the other students laughed, the teacher went on, "did you know that the people who scream the loudest turn out to be gay themselves?"

In The Homosexual Agenda, Sears and Osten report that the nation's largest teachers' union, the National Education Association, is enthusiastically developing programs to incorporate the gay agenda into public school curricula for children of all ages. Many of them are in place today and have been for some years now.

"GLSEN regularly collaborates with other national education organizations to broaden the reach of our message and materials," the lobbying groups executive director, Kevin Jennings writes in a recent fundraising letter.

"For example, last year we helped the National Education Association-the nation's largest teacher's union with 2.7 million members-pass sweeping new policies directing its members to address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues in their work."

Agendized educators are exploiting the confusion that characterizes normal adolescence, according to Craig and Osten in The Homosexual Agenda. . "As bodies change and hormones rage," the authors explain, youths are told that their feelings may indicate that they are bisexual. Further, heterosexuality is portrayed as being passé, while 'alternative' sexuality is promoted as chic and more likely to result in peer acceptance.

Organizations such as the aforementioned GLSEN are targeting children for gay advocacy participation, Sears and Osten point out. The book describes a Day of Silence that GLSEN orchestrates every year, wherein students are not to speak. Instead they are to present a card explaining that they will not speak that day in support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people.

Children are told that friends and family members who hold that homosexuality is wrong should be considered enemies and treated as such, according to research done by the authors. Alienating children from their family and indoctrinating them in school is a small price to pay if the Homosexual Agenda is to be realized, the authors conclude. Sears and Osten head the Alliance Defense Fund.

Spitzer Study Just Published: Evidence Found for Effectiveness of Reorientation Therapy

The results of a study conducted by Dr. Robert L. Spitzer have just been published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol. 32, No. 5, October 2003, pp. 403-417.

Spitzer's findings challenge the widely-held assumption that a homosexual orientation is "who one is" -- an intrinsic part of a person's identity that can never be changed.

The study has attracted particularly attention because its author, a prominent psychiatrist, is viewed as a historic champion of gay activism. Spitzer played a pivotal role in 1973 in removing homosexuality from the psychiatric manual of mental disorders...

Although examples of "complete" change in orientation were not common, the majority of participants did report change from a predominantly or exclusively homosexual orientation before therapy to a predominantly or exclusively heterosexual orientation in the past year as a result of reparative therapy.

These results would seem to contradict the position statements of the major mental health organizations in the United States, which claim there is no scientific basis for believing psychotherapy effective in addressing same-sex attraction. Yet Spitzer reports evidence of change in both sexes, although female participants reported significantly more change than did male participants...

Is reorientation therapy harmful? For the participants in our study, Spitzer notes, there was no evidence of harm. "To the contrary," he says, "they reported that it was helpful in a variety of ways beyond changing sexual orientation itself." And because his study found considerable benefit and no harm, Spitzer said, the American Psychiatric Association should stop applying a double standard in its discouragement of reorientation therapy, while actively encouraging gay-affirmative therapy to confirm and solidify a gay identity.

Furthermore, Spitzer wrote in his conclusion, "the mental health professionals should stop moving in the direction of banning therapy that has, as a goal, a change in sexual orientation. Many patients, provided with informed consent about the possibility that they will be disappointed if the therapy does not succeed, can make a rational choice to work toward developing their heterosexual potential and minimizing their unwanted homosexual attractions."

Is reorientation therapy chosen only by clients who are driven by guilt--that is, what's popularly known as "homophobia"? To the contrary, Spitzer concludes. In fact, "the ability to make such a choice should be considered fundamental to client autonomy and self-determination."

Research Group Warns Schools of Homosexual Propaganda

Schools should let their students know that the differences between the homosexual and heterosexual cultures are many and profound, contrary to assertions by homosexual advocacy groups who seek to portray homosexuality as something innate and essentially without risk, a leading psychological group said...

The mailing "seeks to correct the misinformation that is being promoted by these homosexual advocacy groups that have an incredible influence on the public education system," said Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, president of NARTH and a proponent of reparative therapy for homosexuals who want to change.

"What we're trying to say to school supervisors is, 'don't just rely on pro-gay information sources to make your decisions.' All our stuff is well grounded scientifically," he said. NARTH is a non-religious scientific organization whose 1,000 members include psychologists, psychiatrists and therapists...

The mailing goes out to the same school officials who were targeted in 1999 with a pamphlet entitled "Just the Facts," written by a coalition that included the American Psychological Association (APA).

The APA pamphlet encouraged schools not to inform students that therapy exists to diminish homosexuality and not to refer such students to counselors who will reflect their own family's deeply held values.

"NARTH was so incensed by the misinformation and untruths provided in the APA pamphlet that it immediately took on the task of raising the necessary funds required to compile, print and distribute" the mailing, Nicolosi said.

"Homosexual advocacy groups have been masterful in their ability to reframe what is essentially a health issue to a human rights issue, and when you talk human rights, everyone gets paranoid," he said.

"When you introduce the possibility of change, you introduce the possibility of freedom to choose, and when you do that, you undermine the foundation of the gay agenda," he added...

An excerpt from "Homosexual Agenda Escalates in Public Schools"

Pink triangles in classrooms. Grade school studies of "gay" history. Transvestite speakers. School-wide events to celebrate homosexuality. Student activists spreading propaganda through school publications. Legislation mandating homosexual indoctrination.

This was the school year 2000-2001. What will our neighborhood schools be doing this fall to support the relentless agenda of homosexual activists?

In the Massachusetts town of Newton, home of homosexual congressman Barney Frank, a high school history teacher taught that Alexander the Great was a "gay" man. Other teachers in Massachusetts are building lessons around the Stonewall Inn riots in Greenwich Village in 1969, an event credited by homosexual activists with kicking off the "gay rights" movement.1 In a third grade music class in a Massachusetts town, the male teacher told the children Tchiakovsky was a homosexual, and that society's "homophobia" prompted his suicide.

Newton North High School sponsored a special "To Be Gay" day, complete with inaccurate brochures heavily promoting transgendered behaviors (cross-dressing, having surgery to alter one's biological sex, etc.).2

All of this is taking place in a state where 156 schools host homosexual clubs, called "gay-straight alliances" by advocates.3 Such clubs are provided seed money by a state program to "support" students practicing homosexual behavior. Nationally, GLSEN has said there are over 800 such clubs. GLSEN, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, was founded in Massachusetts in the early 1990s by a male teacher engaged in homosexual activity...

There are, meanwhile, at schools throughout the country, student activists co-opting school publications to disseminate the myths of homosexual advocacy. They use the budding journalist's pen to claim it's an issue of "enlightenment and education" and a civil rights matter rather than well-documented unsafe behavior. At Upper Arlington High School in Columbus in April, students devoted ten pages of a slick magazine to an inaccurate and one-sided promotion of homosexuality. The advocacy was laced with the usual claims of "prejudice and ignorance" by conservatives. It also inaccurately portrayed the work of the ex-gay ministry Exodus International. (For more detail, see the May-June-July 2001 issue of Choice 4 Truth.)

An entire column also promoted a Columbus community "support" group for "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered" youth under 21. This group meets in a homosexual church, and even young teens can attend without parental notification or consent. Such groups exist throughout the country in most metropolitan areas, posing a high risk to children who can interact, socialize and be lured into sexual episodes by the older teens and adults who operate such groups...

Sexual Anarchy, Not Homosexuality, Is the Reality

An ethic of sexual anarchy with homosexuality as its lead issue is being deliberately sold to our youth under the guise of "safety" and "tolerance." Meanwhile, young people's lives and emotional stability are endangered if they make a decision in these tender years to engage in homosexual activity -- or are seduced into such acts by a teacher, coach, or older peer. As we have repeatedly said, there is no evidence of a genetic connection for homosexual desires, and a wealth of evidence that such feelings arise from emotional instability, often fueled by the confused legacy of sexual abuse. The thousands of ex-homosexuals testify to the fact that homosexual feelings can be changed, and it is a betrayal of our children not to let them know about this hope. Yet many schools now are being told by activist groups, including the ACLU and teacher organizations, that they must not encourage heterosexuality instead of homosexuality when counseling troubled or questioning kids.

The "gay" -friendly educational system continues to open its doors to groups like GLSEN and PFLAG, who have been aided by substantial funding boosts in recent years. Many concerned parents are removing their children from the public schools. But others, equally concerned, either do not have the option because of family circumstances, or have no clear educational alternative for their children. And, should we abandon the schools anyway? (ed. note: Absolutely! The sooner the better.)

Turning our backs on the culture and retreating into conservative or religious enclaves is what got us into this mess to begin with. Let's contact our local schools, find out what's going on, and join with other concerned citizens to make some changes this next school year...

An excerpt from "Defending Dr. Laura and America"

I would rather walk a mile barefoot on broken glass than endure a confrontation with homosexual zealots. However, that less painful path cannot be responsibly taken. What choice is there but to stand in opposition to homosexual activists with their in-your face arrogance, their malicious attacks on religion, family values and moral standards, and, in essence, their demand that American society be turned upside down and inside out to accommodate their sexual disorientations?

It is unconscionable that homosexual invectives and threats have effectively shut down most attempts to expose bogus research or address the cultural implications of the homosexual agenda. It should be, but apparently is not, a matter of serious concern, even shame, that so many of our politicians, our journalists and commentators, our scientists, our government schools teachers, our university professors and our clergy have either been seduced to advance the homosexual agenda, intimidated into passive assent, or cowed into silence.

It is one of the great ironies of modern-day America that it is liberals who are not only enabling but spearheading a vicious version of McCarthyism at its worse. Rarely in the history of our republic has there been such a successful effort to keep lies alive, suppress the truth, censor speech, and engage in blatant character assassination...

It is successful because, even now, a significant majority of Americans believe homosexuals are born that way and that a full 10 percent of the population is homosexual, even though the data and scientific evidence to support such beliefs simply do not exist.

While the homosexual lobbyists and radical activists are attacking on multiple fronts, one of the more underreported campaigns is taking place in government schools, the target being young children...

In the meanwhile, a 12-page booklet entitled, "Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation & Youth," has been mailed to the heads of all 14,700 public school districts in America. Its message has been endorsed by a number of mental health organizations, and has the blessings of The National Education Association, the largest teachers union in America.

This booklet of facts has many kind words to say about homosexuality, but leaves out facts about its high risks and dangers...

An excerpt from "A Captive Audience"

Gay/Straight Alliances

If "safe school" initiatives are successful strategies for activists to change policies and advocate in states and school districts, Gay/Straight Alliances (GSA) have proven one of the most effective avenues of activism in the school buildings themselves. Gay activists sell GSAs as student organized and led clubs in which students of all sexual persuasions can meet and discuss issues of sexuality, including homosexuality (Hopgood, 2000). In fact, GSAs commonly operate with tremendous support and organization from external community and national organizations, including GLSEN, a national organization with more than 85 local chapters in 35 states (Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, 2001e; Kabbany, 2000), the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League (Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League, 2001), the Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, also a national organization with local chapters (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, 2001), and numerous other state and local organizations.

Moreover, despite claims that GSA's are not seeking to affect change in schools (Hopgood, 2000), they are more than simply safe student clubs in which students meet and talk. GSAs actually act as springboards for activism. For example, Higgins (2000) reports on an Arizona school in which weekly GSA meetings focused on "com[ing] up with an idea where we're going to take this," according to the student leader. "Where we're going to take this" turned into a student produced video about homosexuality shown schoolwide and the GSA student leader attending a faculty meeting to discuss gay issues with teachers. Mike Pollack, coordinator for Queer Voice, a local gay rights organization, also attended and distributed handouts on dealing with discrimination. After the faculty meeting, teachers asked the student and Pollack to make presentations in their classrooms.

Other examples of GSA activism come from GLSEN's how-to manual on "jump starting" GSAs (Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, 2001c), 20 ways GSAs can "rock the world" (Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, 2001b), and tips for recruiting new members (Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, 2001a). These documents provide students ideas for advocacy within schools, including organizing, performing a "school climate" survey, and creating an action plan. Students are given advertising and promotional tips and instructed on how to queer the curriculum and organize large school events, such as marches and movie nights.

While measuring the success of GSAs proves difficult, their growth may provide one indicator. In 1990, Massachusetts had the only two GSAs in the country. At the 2000 GSLEN conference, workshop leaders estimated more than 800 now operate nationwide.

Syphilis Relapse: Cases soar in New York City (gay men ushering in disease’s resurgence)

"... Harbatkin's fears are founded. In a health department study comparing 88 men with infectious syphilis to a control group, more than half of the infected men reported barebacking, or having anal sex without condoms. Drugs are also clearly implicated in the recent outbreak. One-third of men with syphilis reported using Viagra. And infected men were also more likely to use crystal meth, poppers, and pot.

The study also found that men with syphilis were more than twice as likely to have HIV. "It's a potentially explosive situation for the spread of HIV," says the health department's Blank. "People with HIV are leading longer and healthier lives than was possible in the '80s and early '90s. Part of that involves feeling good—and feeling good enough to have sex." And having active syphilis makes it easier to both pass on and contract HIV when you have sex. Being HIV-positive can also affect the course of syphilis, shortening the length of time it takes for the bacteria to move through their cycles and cause real damage...

Indeed, though, for now, the majority of new cases are in gay men, experts say others shouldn't consider themselves immune. "These things eventually follow the pattern of getting into the heterosexual population," says Kings County's Augenbraun. "If history teaches us anything, it's that, if we allocate resources for prompt treatment and testing of syphilis, we may be able to see a decline. On the other hand, if we don't, then I guarantee you this disease will move out of this relatively small group into a broad cross-section of New York City."

An excerpt from "The History of AIDS and ARC"

The terms AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) and ARC (AIDS-related complex) are historical artifacts, dating from the period between the recognition of an immunosuppression syndrome in gay men and the identification of HIV. In 1981 physicians in San Francisco and New York City began to see a pattern of unusual infections and cancers in young and otherwise healthy homosexual men. The first report in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) focused on the men's infection with an atypical pneumonia and a cancer that had been previously seen only in elderly men of Mediterranean descent.[133]

Early research quickly pointed to common trends among cases, but these were obscured by many extraneous factors. The most suggestive of these was the use of drugs, such as inhalant stimulants, by some of the affected men. As these leads were being pursued, more cases of the syndrome were diagnosed. While epidemiologically inconsistent with the toxin hypothesis, they had the same distribution as hepatitis B. Many victims were positive for hepatitis B acquired in the bathhouses. The most crucial evidence for an infectious agent was the appearance of the disease in persons who had no visible link with the bathhouses.

While a toxic agent might have caused the disease among homosexuals and intravenous drug users, it did not explain the development of the disease among recipients of blood and blood products. Initially a mystery, these cases were soon traced back to the blood donors: homosexual men dead or dying of AIDS. The traditional test for an infectious agent was satisfied, and the parallel to hepatitis B was complete. When the antibody test for HIV became available, it was found in frozen blood samples that had been saved during the study of hepatitis B in the late 1970s.

There was some controversy over what to call this syndrome. Terms such as GRID (gay-related immunodeficiency disease) were considered but rejected in favor of the more neutral AIDS.134 The CDC promulgated a broad surveillance definition of what it called acquired immunodeficiency syndrome to facilitate the reporting and investigation of this new syndrome...


An excerpt from "4 . 3 HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS / AIDS"

III. AIDS IN AMERICA

The first reports of a new disease among gay men in Los Angeles appeared in 1981. Quickly, similar reports came from San Francisco and New York. Staid heterosexual researchers quickly learned of bath houses and those very active homosexuals with more than 200 different contacts a year. Since 1975, there had been an alarming increase of all sexual diseases among members of the gay community in California. Early on, an immunodeficiency was observed in this new category of gay-related diseases. Specifically, T-helper cells in the immune system seemed to disappear as the disease progressed.

The first name for the new disease was GRID: Gay Related Immunodeficiency Disease. Early studies found it was greatest amongst persons with many partners in big cities who were anal receptive. By 1982, with the body count rising, physicians, researchers, and gay activists in France and the United States mobilized research programs...

Bending Gender: California's new definition of gender invades private religious schools

"... Golden State girls aren't necessarily girls anymore, nor men men, since the State Board of Education (SBOE) shoehorned into California's legal code a new definition of gender. According to Title 5 of the state code, "gender" no longer means male or female, but instead "a person's actual sex or perceived sex and includes a person's perceived identity, appearance, or behavior, whether or not that identity, appearance, or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the person's sex at birth."

As of June 2000, at least 18 jurisdictions-including Atlanta, Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, Mich., New Orleans, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and the states of Minnesota and Missouri-had legally enshrined self-determined gender in their nondiscrimination codes using language similar to California's new definition. In all those locales, a person's gender is what he or she says it is, regardless of biology. And employers, including schools, may not take punitive action if, for example, a man wears a dress to work...

How were the floodgates thrown open in California? In 1998, lawmakers here passed AB1999, a Matthew Shepard-inspired school hate-crimes bill that State Senator Sheila James Kuehl (D-Los Angeles), a lesbian, authored. That law introduced into the Golden State penal code a new definition of gender: "'Gender' means the victim's actual sex or the defendant's perception of the victim's sex, and includes the defendant's perception of the victim's identity, appearance, or behavior, whether or not that identity, appearance, or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the victim's sex at birth." The language, Ms. Kuehl told WORLD, was meant to label as a hate crime any assault motivated by "effeminate" qualities of a male victim or "masculine" qualities of a female victim..."

Will law silence the church? Bill that would outlaw the Bible and Catechism in Canada passes House


Documentation from reply 1:

Bill C-250 is a private member’s bill that enshrines “sexual orientation” in Canada’s anti-hate speech laws. It leaves the expressions “sexual orientation” and “hate speech” undefined. Yet in recent rulings upheld by Canada's human rights tribunals, simply quoting from the Bible and other religious texts can now land you massive fines with the threat of incarceration. Perhaps it is providential that Envoy Magazine has added an electronic edition so that our Canadian readership can remain informed.

The sponsor of Bill C-250 is none other than Svend Robinson. Mr. Robinson hails from the electoral riding of Burnaby in British Columbia. Besides being a member of the Canadian parliament, he is also Canada’s most well-known homosexual. Mr. Robinson abandoned his wife midway through his career as a socialist politician to pursue a male lover. Nevertheless, he should not be confused with the Episcopalian bishop of New Hampshire.

Of course, in Svend’s Canada mocking Christians and insulting Americans does not constitute hate speech. Asked what he thought of born-again Christians, Newsmax reports Svend’s response as follows: “Did they have to come back again as themselves?”

Even more shameful is Mr. Robinson’s response to a recent Canadian effort to support our neighbors to the south during a time of national tragedy. “According to Mr. Robinson,” the National Post reports, “9/11 might instead be named ‘Chile Day' - a sneering reference to the fact that Chilean president Salvador Allende died on the same day in a 1973 U.S.- backed military coup that resulted in shameful bloodshed.”

Group pushes homosexuality acceptance for toddlers

A Redmond, Washington, organization of day care professionals has begun to advocate the normalization of the homosexual lifestyle to pre-school children in day care. The Childcare Exchange has two articles on its website exploring the possible methods to teach very small children to accept and practice homosexual behavior and cross-dressing.

One article, "Healthy Sexuality Development in Young Children," recommends allowing boys and girls to wear opposite sex clothing in "dramatic play centers," and "stories will be read that include a variety of family configurations." The authors recommend teaching day care children about masturbation saying, "Children who masturbate will be guided to understand that this is personal behavior and is appropriate for private time but not group time...."

In another article, "Developing Sexual Identity Through Play, Acceptance, Curiosity, and Tolerance," author Lynn Baynum describes a defining moment in her son's development when she told him that "today we use the word 'gay' to describe two adults of the same sex living together as a family."

George A. Rekers, Ph.D., research director for child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, writes in his article on childhood Gender Identity Disorder, that children are vulnerable to confusion in the development of their sexual identity. He writes of a certain "trend for certain vocal elements in education and the media in American culture to sharply question the legitimacy of many, if not all, sex role distinctions in the socialization of children."



'Parents' No Longer Recognized By Schools - Daycare Centers Are Closely Monitored


An excerpt from "Targeting Children - Part two: How the homosexual movement uses public schools as instruments of change"

"GLSEN activist and New York kindergarten teacher Jaki Williams said starting in kindergarten is a must, since children at that age are still developing their ideas about the world around them. Even at that age, she said, “the saturation process needs to begin.”

Williams, in fact, is a model teacher when it comes to this “saturation” process. She regularly initiates conversations with her children by reading to them such controversial books as Heather Has Two Mommies, Daddy’s Roommate, and One Dad, Two Dads, Browns Dads, Blue Dads. She also hosts a viewing of the video Both of My Moms’ Names Are Judy: Children of Lesbians and Gays Speak Out, produced by a San Francisco pro-homosexual advocacy group.

According to one writer for The Lambda Report, who infiltrated a 1997 GLSEN workshop, one former teacher admitted that changing the mind of a child required more than a one-time effort. She said she had to expose her children to a constant stream of homosexual words and images, because "It’s really a conditioning process."


Teaching Kindergarten Kids About 'Human Differences' and Homosexuality Isn't 'Easy' in Newton

It's Elementary: Gay and Lesbian Issues in the Classroom

Education Exchange, November/December 1998

"Often, portions of the video are shown in classrooms with children as young as kindergarten, a practice that Concerned Women for America has labeled "an aggressive new national campaign." A columnist with the New York Post characterized It's Elementary as "78-minutes of relentless propaganda to advance the acceptance of homosexuality, as distinct from tolerance."

GLSEN documentation:

High School Same-Sex Marriage Curriculum Anything But Balanced

A new same-sex marriage curriculum for high schools is running into scholarly opposition from three authors led by noted sexual orientation researcher Warren Throckmorton, Ph.D.

Throckmorton, Gary Welton, Ph.D. and student Mike Ingram wrote a white paper that examines the curriculum produced by The Gay Lesbian Straight Educational Network (GLSEN) entitled “At Issue: Marriage. Exploring the Debate Over Rights for Same Sex Marriage.”

The Gay Lesbian Straight Educational Network released its curriculum in 2003 designed to be used over a two to three week instructional period by high school teachers. The GLSEN web site urges high schools to be involved in same sex marriage education stating, “Along with parents and care takers, schools must take a leading role in providing accurate information about same-sex relationships …”

"Our curriculum is designed to give them (students) a fair and balanced set of resources concerning gay marriage..." said GLSEN Director Kevin Jennings on FOXNEWs' “O’Reilly Factor.” Host Bill O'Reilly then asked, "So you give them both sides in this?" Mr. Jennings, replied, "Absolutely."

The white paper, “Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ and Schools: Critical Review of the GLSEN Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Curriculum,” found the opposite to be true stating, “The curriculum would more aptly be titled ‘How to Advocate for Gay Marriage: A Teachers Guide.’ The curriculum clearly points students to one conclusion: A truly fair and educated person will support same sex marriage.”

Throckmorton adds that of the 18 references offered in the GLSEN curriculum, 14 are pro-same sex marriage, three are somewhat neutral on the subject and only one reference to a Vatican pronouncement is in favor of traditional marriage.

The white paper recommends that schools pass on adopting the GLSEN curriculum.

“The GLSEN authors may have meant well, but the curriculum is anything but fair and balanced. We document multiple instances where the curriculum is slanted, misleading and even coercive,” Throckmorton said.

Warren Throckmorton is an associate professor of psychology and director of counseling at Grove City College, Gary Welton, professor of psychology at Grove City College and Mike Ingram is a student at Grove City College and a research assistant for the Truth Comes Out Project.


Documentation - see GLSEN's "At Issue: Marriage - Exploring the Debate Over Marriage Rights for Same-Sex Couples" and judge for yourself. Here's an excerpt:

"As the nation awaits the decision of the Massachusetts Supreme Court on the right of same-sex couples to civil marriage, educators are the presented with an opportunity to teach students about one of the most significant civil and human rights issues of our time...

Lesson 1: What Is Marriage For? In her book What is Marriage For? E.J. Graff describes marriage as "a kind of Jerusalem, an archaeological site on which the present is constantly building over the past, letting history’s many layers twist and tilt into today’s walls and floors." Indeed the institution of marriage has changed dramatically over the centuries to reflect evolving understandings of family, money, sex, love, and power. In this lesson, students are challenged to discern some of those understandings from specific laws and customs of different eras. Students are then asked to examine current practices and to determine the extent to which they reflect modern understandings of marriage...


It should be noted that E.J. Graff is a lesbian author. This "curriculum" is more GLSEN propaganda.

Web-Based Behavioral Surveillance Among Men Who Have Sex With Men: A Comparison of Online and Offline Samples in London, UK

From *City University London, Institute of Health Sciences, St. Bartholomew School of Nursing and Midwifery; †Royal Free and University College Medical School, London; and ‡Medical Research Council Social and Public Health Sciences Research Unit, University of Glasgow, Scotland.

Received for publication July 4, 2003; accepted January 5, 2004.

Funded by the UK Medical Research Council (grant number GO100159) and by Camden and Islington Primary Care Trusts.

Reprints: Jonathan Elford, City University Institute of Health Sciences, St. Bartholomew School of Nursing and Midwifery, 20 Bartholomew Close, London EC1A, UK (e-mail: j.elford@city.ac.uk).

Abstract

Objective: To compare the characteristics of men who have sex with men (MSM) surveyed online (through gay Internet chat rooms and profiles) and offline (in community venues) in London, UK.

Methods: In February and March 2002, 879 MSM completed a self-administered pen-and-paper questionnaire distributed in central London gyms (offline sample). In May and June 2002, 1218 London MSM completed a self-administered questionnaire online, accessed through Internet chat rooms and profiles on gaydar and gay.com.

Results: Compared with men surveyed offline, those surveyed online were significantly less likely to only have sex with men (89 vs. 94%), to be in a relationship with a man (44 vs. 52%), or to have been tested for HIV (68 vs. 80%) (P < 0.001). Men recruited online were also younger (mean age, 34 vs. 36 years) and less likely to have had a higher education (67 vs. 79%) (P < 0.001). However, differences between online and offline samples were less pronounced for HIV-positive men and more pronounced for HIV-negative men and those who had never been tested for HIV. Regardless of HIV status, men recruited online were more likely to report high-risk sexual behavior (i.e., unprotected anal intercourse with a partner of unknown or discordant HIV status) than men surveyed offline (32 vs. 22%, P < 0.001). Men recruited online were also significantly more likely to have used the Internet to look for sex (85 vs. 45%, P < 0.001); for HIV-positive and negative men, seeking sex on the Internet was associated with high-risk sexual behavior (P < 0.01). In multivariate analysis, after controlling for confounding factors, being surveyed online was independently associated with high-risk sexual behavior for HIV-negative and never-tested men (HIV-negative men, adjusted odds ratio for online vs. offline samples, 1.73; 95% CI, 1.23, 2.42; P < 0.01; never-tested men adjusted odds ratio 2.45; 95% CI, 1.40, 4.29; P < 0.01). This was not the case for HIV-positive men (adjusted odds ratio for online vs. offline samples, 1.32; 95% CI, 0.69, 2.50; P = 0.4).

Conclusion: The Internet offers valuable opportunities for conducting behavioral surveillance among MSM because it reaches some men who may not be easily accessed in the community yet who are at high risk for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases. Comparisons of the social, demographic, and behavioral characteristics of online and offline samples must, however, take into account the confounding effects of HIV status and seeking sex on the Internet.
