Safe Schools Czar Declares That Heterosexuality Is Not the Norm
Parents and Teachers for Responsible Schools | February 9, 2010 | Linda

February 9, 2010

Safe Schools Czar Declares That Heterosexuality Is Not The Norm. If you think it is then you are a “heterosexist”.

In his efforts to “make public schools safe” GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings will introduce rules about what will not be allowed on public school campuses across this nation. Jennings has stated that if you express the belief that homosexuality is “psychologically, spiritually, or morally wrong” you are engaging in “heterosexism” which is a “prejudice” just like “racism, anti-Semitism, and sexism.” (GLSEN website)

Once liberals label something an “ism” you tend to get in trouble for doing it. Jennings narrates a video entitled, ‘Teaching Respect for All’. Most of it is a bitter discourse against parents, the clergy and heterosexuality. It is ill named “respect for all”. A few comments from the video:

· “We also have to deal with a problem called heterosexism. We’re all raised to see heterosexuality as kind of the norm.” · “Then of course you get your clergy person, which is, ah, where you play religious Russian Roulette.”

During this part of his commentary Jennings uses a flip chart and crosses out, with a single big X, parents, friends, and teachers [if the teacher is “heterosexist”] as people students struggling with same sex desires can not trust. When he reaches the word “clergy”, instead of putting an X through it, he obliterates the word with his marker. Who is left for the troubled student to go to for counseling? Why GLSEN and other homosexual affirming organizations or teachers.

Kevin Jennings wants parents to shut up while he bullies his way in to every public school classroom and indoctrinates your children to think like he does on this controversial subject.

And soon that “shut up!” may carry a legal punch.

“There are times when I honestly want to say to our opponents, “Why don’t you just give up now?” It’s not a question of whether or not you’re going to lose; it’s a question of when you’re going to lose.” Kevin Jennings (wigglenet zine, Internet interview)

How about their precious progressivISM?

Heterosexuality/chastity is the norm. Gay is less than 5 percent but it is a LOUD 5 percent.

Given that around 98% of people are heterosexual, one wonders what it would take for “heterosexism” to be considered normative.

Someone should ask this asshat where the cutoff is. 98.3%? 99.6?

Safe Schools Czar Declares That Heterosexuality Is Not The Norm. If you think it is then you are a “heterosexist”.

I'm a heterosexist and proud of it. BTW, regarding "norm" A standard, model, or pattern regarded as typical: the current middle-class norm of two children per family.

norm: 1. standard pattern of behavior: a standard pattern of behavior that is considered normal in a society; 2. usual situation: the customary situation or circumstances

How else would someone without an agenda describe the beliefs, values, genetic predisposition, and behavior of 98% of the population, other than as the norm?

I don’t think this individual understands that the word “norm” has a precise meaning and that it isn’t judgmental, it’s only descriptive. Any society for which heterosexuality is not the norm is going to die out. That isn’t likely to change as long as we remain mammals.

Sadly, the push to normalize homosexuality from entertainment, the news media, and the government is working. Little by little the stigma is lessening. We live in a small town, far removed from a major metro area and my husband, who teaches and coaches, has noticed that even heterosexual teenage boys have started cuddling, holding hands, etc. At FOOTBALL practice! Even more frustrating for him is that he is the only teacher/coach to make them stop. Of course, they laugh and call him ‘homophobic’.

I’m not quite 20 years out of high school, but I can only imagine what the farm boys I went to school with would have done if another boy had climbed into his lap. Attitudes among teenagers and young adults are changing.

These freaks, and I refer to all leftists when I say freaks,

need to be isolated in their own political and geographic region

where they can’t bother the rest of us anymore.

Full state sovereignty is the solution.

“kind of the norm”?

KIND OF THE NORM?!

How the h*ll does he think we all got here? Jennings is a moron of the highest order (or lowest; pick your direction). He needs to go. It’s appalling to me that he’s still allowed to hold a seat even in the Obama administration. Why did all the talk of kicking him out get muzzled?

Spineless leaders. What conservatives are willing to launch a crusade against this pervert?

Not only would it show the leftists for what they are, it would be a rare opportunity for a politician to do the right thing.

If Palin was a great leader she would be all over this. But in truth conservatives don’t care about real leaders. Just like the leftists they really want to be made to feel good about a nice speech and empty gestures.

This is why I homeschool. I will NOT have my child exposed to pedophiliac fantasies by people like Kevin Jennings.

I don’t care if someone is gay or not, it’s not my business... but, if you force your views of sexual preference on me or my child I will get all up in your face about it.

My question is this... which czar will play the role of Mengele in this sick twisted modern parody?

Absolutely not. This is the truth. Easily verifiable. Now, Jennings does not want you to focus on this belief of his. But it is well documented and his goal is to make it illegal to speak out against homosexuality in a public school.

This information was released by Parents and Teachers for Responsible Schools. I wrote it. We tried to stop Kevin Jennings and GLSEN from gaining complete access to public school children here in Seattle from 1997 to about 2002. To no avail. Like many concerned parents around the nation we found ourselves battling this guy and his radical agenda. I did a lot of research on Jennings and GLSEN and it seems a good time to share it.

Jennings has no authority regarding public schools. Obama wants schools to extend their school year, smaller classes, charter schools, blah, blah, blah. Jennings wants homosexual indoctrination. It’s up to the states to decide what they want, not Obama and his czar clowns.

Maybe they can enact a law limiting federal funds to public schools, but that’s about it. Maybe that wouldn’t be a bad thing.

I can’t give you statistics, but I can tell you what an MD told me. What most people don’t know is that semen is very corrosive. It has to be in order for the sperm to break through the outer layer of the egg. The vaginal cavity is really the only part of the body perfectly designed to handle the semen. Put that corrosive substance in any other body cavity and it will eat away at it.

I know...EWWWWWWW!

But, having even trace amounts of fecal material leaking into your blood stream is not good and can be deadly. Diseases can spread more readily as well.

Homosexuality is NOT just as safe as NORMAL, traditional marriage relationships. I have heard that homosexual males have a life expectancy about 30 years less than average males.
