BURLINGTON, Vt. Like plenty of other high school students, a group of about a dozen Vermont teenagers trundled into a youth center one day every week this spring to participate in an after-school program.
But their program was different; it focused on gender.
The nine-week program, partially funded by the Burlington School District, was held at Vermont's Queer Youth Center and called "Gendertopia."
Gay, lesbian and straight students discussed a wide range of topics, from the characters in the book and movie "Twilight," to taking photos around the city that show the different ways gender is portrayed in popular culture.

Homosexual pederasts used to lurk in public toilets.
Now they run our public schools. God help us.
Granted, the school system and their corruption of innocent minds is by far the worst.
Shouldn’t they have figured this out when they were going to Gymboree?
They used to be called “deviants” or “sick-sex freaks”. now they have an officially-sanctioned forum for “grooming” their victims. Sick, disgusting, despicable. Meanwhile, Indian, Chinese and South Korean kids are filling their heads with academic knowledge and are getting ready to give us an economic tail-whipping. We deserve it.
Another reason to homeschool!
The was actually funded by citizens who were under the threat of police action if they failed to do so.
I’m glad this article is about Vermont. I was afraid it was about Virginia Tech.
I have a homo phobia that the voluntary nature of programs like this will not last forever.
Seeing that it was an after school program, I wasn’t sure.
Seeing that it’s partially funded by the public school, I am.
There’s some truth to it but I learned something a week ago. A couple of blocks away is Hollywood High School. They are obviously indoctrinated to accept homosexuality in their curriculum. But I spoke to one of the students during lunchtime whom I struck a conversation with and he tells me :”sure, they teach us this faggot sh*t but we just give em what they want to hear to pass our grades.”
I believe this to be a product of the “if it feels good do it” and the “me-first” society we have become (especially the libs). These young kids are made to feel different and special by massaging and validating any and all perversions that they manufacture. Gender confusion? Isn’t this a mental problem and in need of some severe counseling or a swift kick in the butt? I am a teacher at a high school and find that most students think this stuff is idiotic and silly but they are brow beat into accepting this stuff due to political correctness. Parenting in this country is undoubtedly at an all-time worst and unless some tough love is practiced soon we will be in such a freefall as a society that we will fall.
Any ladies that wish to explore my gender are more than welcome. Just drop me a FReepmail :)
LOL...Yeah, I have wondered how long it will take before a man is arrested in the ladies locker room only to claim that he thinks of himself as a woman and was more gender-comfortable in there. It has to happen at this rate.
“Queer Youth Center”???
Taxpayers are putting up with that?
This is making me queasy. Barf alert did not help.
If my property taxes went to that abomination, I WOULD MOVE. I’d leave them to their depravity.
My first thought, too!
For all the talk that conservatives are narrow minded, really “liberals” are narrow minded: Apparently, they believe boys and girls should behave in certain ways, and if they behave any other way, they must be part boy/girl. Ridiculous.
The Bible says that after a great flood, God sent a rainbow as a sign that He would never again send another. After Sodom and Gomorrah were wiped out with a ball of fire, God sent no such rainbow. Just a thought.
“...If you are making fun of me because I am wearing a pink shirt and that’s sort of expressing my femininity, my feminine side, that translates into homophobia, but it has nothing to do with whether I’m straight or whether I’m dating boys or whether I’m dating girls. It has to do with the fact that I’m wearing a pink shirt.”
“The program was designed to help young people identify the subtle signals used to express gender and how not being aware of those signals can lower self esteem and possibly lead to an increase in at-risk activities like substance abuse or dropping out of school, Neff said.”
Um.....no. Just no.
There is a wide range of overlapping mannerisms that is perfectly normal among men and women.
These Liberal/Marxists are stereotyping! Absolutely!
and they do not have to undergo criminal background checks. But the Kiwanis Club does!
Today’s schoolchildren’s grandparents were raised on Dr. Beanjamin Spock, especially if they were born in the U.S. The sins of their grandgrandparents who raised narcissistic kids without restraints are killing their own generations. Those narcissistic kids raised according to Spock are now senior administrators of the school systems, the media, etc. Short of teaching mass murder or being a victim of terrorism, no other trend could so effectively destroy children and their families and their communities and their nation and the world. Our tax dollars are paying for this. Whoever sees this for what it is should be present at school board meetings, writing letters, and protesting this continuously.
My first thought at the headline was Virginia Tech and thusly I was not surprised or even offended (its a college I expect no better) I should have known it was for a HS..
You’re not the only one, my first thought was the shootings really sent the administration over the deep end.
I am not realy sure if this is quite on topic but... I heard recently that scientists had agreed that there is no “Gay Gene”. I think that to any reasoning individual it is obvious that the very presence of a gay gene would go against selection itself. I mean that a gay gene would have to be extremely recessive wouldn’t it? I don’t know much about genetics but I do know that I once lived in the south pacific and I met people from,I think, Tonga. They were pretty obese. I was told that they came from a line of ocean travelers and the people selected to go on these long voyages that they went on were the fat ones because they survived longer without food. Therefore fat became beautiful in their society and then the genetics that tended toward obesity passed on. Point being that genetics that tends toward survival of the species gets passed on doesn’t it? How can one person of a certain sex diddling someone of the same sex tend toward preservation of a species? Wouldn’t that variation be discarded as non-productive? Isn’t it obvious that since gay folk can’t reproduce naturally so long as they have gay relations the gay gene would be discarded as not useful? If it ever existed once upon a time. Just a thought.
