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

Posted on 03/30/2008 9:02:43 AM PDT by BurbankKarl

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.

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.

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.

"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'...

The homosexual community wants children to declare themselves homosexual so they can then get the right of consent lowered so they can legally have sex with them. Homosexuals must recruit because their group is dying from aids and they are insatiable and must have “New Meat”. The average homosexual male has over 700 sex partners in their lifetime.

Bullying takes many forms. A gay boy flirting with a straight boy is a bully. A lesbian girl roughing up a bookworm in gym class is a bully. But these bullies will be tolerated...no, accepted.

It always used to be that less athletic students, good serious academic students, music students, drama students, art students, and students who weren’t making out openly in the hallways were labelled gay by some of their more bullying peers. I hope these are not the kids that are being convinced they are gay now at earlier ages. They just may be late heterosexual bloomers. That would be a tragedy if these teachers and counselors are also telling them they’re gay. Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone...

This is my local paper and I know this writer. Complete Lefty. I think children, at a very young age, are being encouraged to believe that being gay is special and unique. So it is translated, to the young, as a good quality. I doubt that many are actually feeling homosexual tendencies but it is so celebrated these days that they want to be thought of as ‘special’. Very destructive to our culture.

If homosexuals are “born that way,” then a person cannot be recruited into it. So maybe it’s not inborn, but a choice. Acting on it is certainly a choice, just as acting on adulterous or pedophiliac or bestial desires would be choices.

The article says that is based on general population statistics, and you would have to think that the number of adult hari-dressers who move to LA would drive the % at least that much.

They’ve had the access. For years they have molested kids and the fragile human psyche minimizes the attack by normalizing it.

The real change has been that people have been willing to accept that molesting is simply “helping them come to grips with their sexuality”.

When you look at the average age a homosexual male has his first gay encounter, and the average age of his first partner, what you see is a very clear pattern of predatory behavior by parts of the gay community.

The boy in question knowingly made an unwelcome sexual advance at a heterosexual boy.

This used to be known as sexual harassment except gays are allowed to recruit and taunt heteros.

Ever notice how those who are “bi-curious” are always encouraged to engage in homosexual acts but those troubled homosexuals are not allowed counsel to come to grips with their heterosexuality?

I wanted to be a clipper ship captain at that age as a girl. That didn't work out too well. LOL

Mind you, this was back in the 60's, and society has surely changed a lot since then (understatement). I was a big reader, as I am now, and the romanticism of life at sea appealed to me.

Kids that have no direction buy into the whole gay thing in my opinion. We watch American Idol with our 11 year old son, and I have to tell you, he was mimicking Danny Noriega's gay affectations.

It opened a door for discussion and how it's not cool to act "gay". He has a fine-tuned sense of sarcasm for one so young, and got "it".

Knowing your child and being tuned into their life is key. I know that you know that. So sad some parents aren't active in their child's life. It's tough when they're sassy and trying to make their way but I refuse to give up control.

Kids openly gay behaving like perverts earlier than ever

I'm not surprised. Kids will do just about anything they are encouraged to do and applauded for. If we declared cannibalism to be an identity and gave its practitioners special rights and protections in schools, they'd be doing that too.

Then when they experiment with homosexuality, they are told the lie that once a homosexual, they are always a homosexual.
