Kids openly gay earlier than ever
Daily News ^ | 3.26.08 | Patricia Farrell Aidem

When a gay teenager was gunned down earlier this year at an Oxnard school, the violence resulted in the unexpected: Young people, gay and straight, rallied across the nation for civil rights.

And even at an age when they're grappling with their own fragile sexuality, teens weren't afraid to stand up for the classmate who had been different.

"In middle school, you don't think about your own sexuality so much as you think of what society thinks is normal for kids, and you try to blend in," said 18-year-old Luis Roman, a gay community college student and youth leader for the Gay-Straight Alliance, an advocacy group active on high school and middle school campuses.

"So for these kids to come out and say that just because he was gay, that isn't a reason to get shot, that was mind-blowing to see that courage, for kids to stand up.

"Unfortunately, it took something of this level to make people realize there are gay people, there are lesbians, there are bisexuals, and they're part of our society."

The slaying of 15-year-old Lawrence King on Feb. 12 and the reaction to it illustrated a social shift characterized by gay youths "coming out" younger and their straight counterparts learning the art of tolerance.

----

"This was one of those turning points in society," he said. "It was a reality shock for everybody. They realized, `Hey, people are being bullied, and we're not doing anything about it."'

But even with an estimated 35,000 openly gay students in the Los Angeles Unified School District - a number based on general population statistics - teenagers, school officials, private counselors and advocates agree there's a long road ahead to wipe out discrimination.

Looks like the homos are winning the war to gain access to our children.

Isn’t this horrible. My son has a female friend that he has know since kindergarten, who has been claiming to be gay for the last couple of years. They are only 12. What in the world is going on?

They are not openly “gay” earlier they are being encouraged to “act gay” for some perverse reason.
I think these liberals get off on homosexuality and teenage sex of all types.

The homo chickenhawk children recruiters are cheering. The plan is working!

Perverts used to have to lurk in public toilets. Now they run our schools and institutions.

In the days after the Oxnard shooting, the spotlight turned on one such administrator - Jerry Dannenberg, superintendent of the Hueneme School District, which operates E.O. Green Junior High School in south Oxnard, where King was killed.... "We're working not for tolerance, but for acceptance," he said. "I don't care if it's race, gender or sexual orientation. We need to accept the uniqueness of each and every one."

There's your problem right there. The acceptance is only for those who believe in the gay agenda that it is a hard-wired condition and not a result of some trauma that could be healed; but no acceptance for those who understand that the "gay identity" theory has been based on false statistics and wishful thinking, not scientific fact.

For all South Park-Conservatives, those who like South Park and anyone else: Watch South Park Episode 708 (Season 7 Episode 8) "South Park is Gay". As always they have exceedingly funny and spot-on social commentary on kids and homosexuality.

Watch all South Park Episodes Free (official site)

The plan of the homosexual crowd all along has been to gain access to children. Kids are prone to gravitate to things that are “cool”, and we’re all told that homosexuals are just the hippest thing around. Kids also like to be a bit rebellious, so if mom and dad are straight, then being “gay” is to assert one’s independence. Then, at puberty, kids are starting to feel a little confused. They’re taught to “experiment” a little. And since you can’t cause a pregnancy by engaging in homosexual relations, why not give it a try?

A lot of these are going to grow up seriously confused and even demented.

... the spotlight turned on one such administrator - Jerry Dannenberg, superintendent ... King had announced .. he was gay and had begun wearing makeup and feminine accessories.
"We're working not for tolerance, but for acceptance," he said.
Acceptance?!? No 'Nancy boy', 'Tolerance' is it, that's your only 'right', to be tolerated, period. I DON'T have to 'accept' you.

And you can Kiss My A... oops wait a sec lemme try again, Screw Yo... oops no forget that too. Uh .. go F... nope that's no good either.

Oh Heck, Yo 'Jerry'...
