Under no circumstances should conservatives participate in the process of normalizing creepy homos. It’s at the bottom of much of what is going wrong in this country.

As for the part about ending gender based sports teams, as long as making the team is based solely on open tryouts, and it's extended to high schools, I'm all for it.

It’s a sick world when homos, lesbians, pedophiles, cross-dressers, transgendered mutants and other sexully confused er, sexual perverts who think primarily with their sex organs are placed in charge of school children.

Barney Frank and his partner Jim ready tried their best to legal gay marriage in this state in 2009. I knew this was not finished. They will do what they can to pervert our children. If they can’t get it through votes they will find another way to do it. This is sick. Every parent in the state should keep their kids out of school and put a stop to this.

Nothing is mandatory unless you let it be.

After 5 now adult children attended NJ public school I was used to dealing with PS. I learned that if I were to make a fuss they would back down. Attending a few school board meetings & questions about what money is spent on brings attention to yourself. They really don't like that. So to shut you up they do back down. If you don't like something open up your mouth & say so. I had my now 10 yr old in public school for 2nd grade. On the back to school night which we always attend I learned to go early. I would walk in with a printed list. I called it the NO LIST. No gay agenda, no global warming nonsense, no movies w/o signed permission note, & so on. I would speak quietly to the teacher & explain my views & then let Sassy's daddy put his 2 cents in. We never had a problem with the teachers ever.

However that school nurse was a dolt. She didn't call me when Sassy was hit in the mouth with a hockey stick. I just happened to call the nurse about Sassy's inhaler & learned from her my daughter was in her office. When I asked to speak to her Sassy told me blood was pouring from her mouth. I asked the nurse to check her teeth & she said it wasn't her job & that I was being too protective. I told her Sassy was being picked up & then I got on the phone with the principal. Then the superintendent. By the end of the day Sassy was officially done with public school. We home school & she loves it & so do I. In fact I know school officials were really happy when we left as Sassy's daddy was really mad about his baby getting bashed with the hockey stick & made a HUGE stink over it. They were afraid of him lol.

If you sent your son to school dressed as a female that would be your fault....What if you had no dresses? H-ll I would have laughed at that & kept him home. Better yet I would have gathered a group of outraged parents & forced a meeting with the school board. If you are going to keep your kid in public school you better get involved & plan to fight them every time they try cr@p like this!

These crazy “Sex Positive” assemblies and lectures are usually done without parental notification and they usually start off with “Don’t tell your parents”. Telling little kids to just do it, they are perverts.

Actually, they’re called “fiddleheads.” They are ferns that haven’t “unfurled” yet. Popular with old-time Maine folks, but I’ve never tried them.

Seriously, though, I’m in Maine, and this is the first I’ve heard of this restroom / lockerroom ban. My guess is that it’s a bill proposed by one sole moonbat that won’t go anywhere.

Yes, that is true. That was why Sassy was taught to raise her hand & say I must leave the room & call home. I was shocked when my friends down south of me told me their children had seen It's Ok To Be Gay without their permission. I was asking my daughter each day what went on in school & did they ever tell her not to tell her parents...Thankfully it didn't happen. But she is a grade above where she would be in public school, isn't sick & we don't worry about the bus ride to school, the bullies & perverts etc. I didn't think I could home school but thanks to many FReepers I found I am able to do it.

I assume you're thinking it's more OK at the younger ages. But that is when we are still being formed, and our cultural mores are being implanted. Modesty and of course the difference between the sexes is a big part of natural sexuality.

These people want to totally destroy natural sexuality. This is not sexualizing the children, it is desexualizing them. Same with promiscuity and pornography. Read George Gilder's Sexual Suicide, an old book that was spot-on then and still is now.

It is stunning how far we have fallen from the moral electorate required of a free Constitutional Republic.

Dr. Franklin asked if “we can keep it”. The question is being answered.

An immoral people can’t keep their liberty and don’t deserve to in any case.

I remember the first time I heard the term “culture war”. It was said by Charleton Heston when he was NRA President. This culture war has never been as desperate as it is today.

For a few months now, I have no liberal friends. We are in a great culture war for all the marbles now. It is freedom vs tyranny. Property, responsibility, life, opportunity vs communism.

I have no liberal friends. They are now traitors to the cause of liberty. We are in a significant culture war for all the marbles. We have to find a way to win.

Exactly. On our way to full blown communism, our first stop is France. They want to make us just like France in the short term, where egalite is everything and liberte is nothing, because we trade away all our liberte in our jealous quest for egalite.

You pretty much nailed it.

This has been going on my entire life, which is since the 1950s. The people demand equal outcome and we are heading toward the equal suffering which the idiot masses are clamoring for. Of course, this will be the equal suffering of socialism/communism.

You nailed it.

"Well, the transgendered “thing” (have no idea if it was a man or woman or both or neither) being interviewed on FOX News said it would be “gender discrimination” to force boys to use boys bathrooms and girls to use girls bathrooms. What if the little boy thought he should’ve been born a little girl, etc."

The only way to respond to such lunacy is to treat it as such. Any time the leftist crazies can drag you down into a discussion, framed with terms they have created (such as "gender discrimination"), in which they relentlessly demand that you justify your moral positions, they have won. This is why they frame the marriage debate as a question of "fairness." The proper response to that one is that homosexual "marriage" is just plain wrong and is an attempt to redefine a universally recognized institution.

We must stop apologizing for our positions on moral issues, and must not allow ourselves to be dragged down into the PC mud. What the left fails to comprehend is that some things are WRONG, period. No further dissection of why they are wrong is necessary nor is it productive. If the typical five-year-old knows that two men "marrying" each other is wrong, or that it is wrong for little boys and girls to be forced to use the same restroom facilities, then none of us should waste our time replying to leftist demands to explain why these things are wrong.

That's their favorite tactic. You're opposed to "gay marriage" - Why? You're opposed to unisex restrooms - Why? Why, why, why? They want to take every moral concept that is self-evident and make you question it and force you to have to justify it. Don't take the bait.

The only proper response to such stupidity is ridicule and scorn. They want to portray themselves as representing the mainstream, but they are actually the EXTREME lunatic fringe. Treat them as such and move on. And do this with the rest of the PC litany of nonsense, as well. We must reverse the semi-respectability that these crazy ideas are gaining by immediately dismissing them as immoral nuttiness every time they are raised. If enough people consistently do this, rather than allowing themselves to be guilted into discussing the alleged merits of said nutty ideas, then it might just begin to rub off on the rest of our fellow citizens.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. Metmom holds both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail Metmom if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
