A Checklist to Assess Your School's Risk for Encouraging HOMOSEXUALITY
Fighting the "gay" Agenda in Schools ^

Posted on 07/07/2003 1:03:41 PM PDT by AZ GRAMMY

A Checklist to Assess Your School's Risk for Encouraging HOMOSEXUALITY

For concerned students, parents and communities

The activities and policies below may sound nice, but in reality protect and promote homosexuality and sexual promiscuity, putting students directly in harm's way instead of cautioning them about risky behavior.

Is your school jumping on this foolish bandwagon?

1.__ A "safe schools" non-harassment program

Assumption: Claims that students involved in homosexuality need to be protected because they are at higher risk for harassment and violence.

Problems: Protects dangerous behavior and silences those who believe homosexuality is wrong. Assumes that some students are naturally homosexual, and that it is not risky behavior. Also assumes that these students need special safeguards not extended to other students, and that a well-enforced, equitable non-harassment policy is insufficient.

Result: The behavior of homosexuality becomes essentially endorsed by the school, because it protects the option for any student to engage in it. Ends up labeling anyone who objects to homosexuality as a potential "harasser."

2.__ A homosexual student club

Assumption: That students involved in homosexuality are a self-contained minority who need higher self-esteem and greater comfort with homosexual behavior.

Problems: Establishes adult/community support for participation in homosexuality with all its known risks. Ironically, in most schools, HIV educational programs about the risks of this behavior are fully supported. A club provides a venue where students curious about this behavior, but who have not yet engaged in it, can readily meet students and even adult advisors to begin homosexual relationships-with school support! With the emphasis on homophobia, these clubs become breeding grounds for hostility, where bigoted attitudes are nurtured against anyone who objects to homosexual behavior, objections which can save a student's life.

Results: Communities and families become divided on this basic issue, and student lives and welfare are put at extreme risk based on misinformation.

3._Non-discrimination policy based on "sexual orientation"

Assumption: That people practicing homosexual behavior are a minority group different from other people. Also, that they are in need of special protection based on homosexuality.

Problems: Underlying message is that homosexuality is acceptable in the school environment for anyone who wants to engage in it. Ends up labeling all objections to homosexuality as problematic, rather than the dangerous, immoral behavior itself. Homosexual practices can and do change over time.

Results: Students and teachers who want to engage in homosexuality, bisexuality etc. are protected in doing so, and in expressing this to others in the school system. This in essence becomes an endorsement of a behavior which should actually be discouraged.

4.__ Programs to stop "homophobia," "hate" or "bias"

Assumptions: That there is something wrong with objecting to homosexuality. That homosexual behavior is a minority issue like racial status. Any objections to homosexual behavior are said to originate from "hate" and are connected to violence against homosexuals. Such programs also claim there is no difference between expressed hatred of homosexuals and commonplace moral objections.

Problems: Puts those who object to homosexuality for any reason on the defensive. Causes those who have objections to remain silent, leaving an open field for radical student, teacher or outside groups to define "hate" and discrimination however they wish. Flies in the face of freedom of religion, freedom of association and freedom of speech.

Examples: 1) GLSEN (radical homosexual activist group) teaching manual, "Tackling Gay Issues in School," which focuses on non-respectful tactics to silence all objections to the full expression of homosexuality. It also encourages student experimentation.

2) Programs about "differences" and "diversity" which usually combine positive values like acceptance of racial differences, with dangerous acceptance of homosexual lifestyles. AT&T's program "Opening the Doors to Diversity: Voices from the Middle School" is one of these. 3)The Department of Justice also sponsors programs on reducing "hate" that make this same erroneous connection, as do the videos "It's Elementary" and "That's a Family," and the play "Cootie Shots."

Results: Christians, conservatives and in fact, all supporters of traditional values are accused of "hate." Instances of harassment are linked to those who would never commit such acts. Students are not warned about homosexuality, so more will experiment with this high-risk behavior.

5._Pro-homosexual literature added to curricula and libraries; pro-family material bypassed or discarded.

Assumptions: That stories involving homosexuality, even if sexually graphic in nature, provide necessary "support" for students who "are" homosexual, and provide education for all students about the need to accept this lifestyle. Material supporting the traditional family is viewed as discriminatory.

Problems: Dangerous misinformation is packaged as "diversity" and the content of much of the material for older students qualifies as obscenity.

Examples: The following books have been the focus of parent objections in schools around the country. Elementary grades: My Two Uncles; The Duke Who Outlawed Jellybeans; Daddy's Roommate; Heather Has Two Mommies; One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dad

Middle school and high school: Entries from a Hot Pink Notebook; Am I Blue?; Annie on My Mind; Athletic Shorts; Becoming Visible; Who Framed Lorenzo Garcia?; Tommy Stands Alone; Two Teenagers in Twenty; Invisible Life; Just As I Am; This Too Shall Pass; Understanding Sexual Identity; A History of Western Society (textbook)

6._AIDS and "safe sex" education programs

Assumptions: That all students are at risk of AIDS; that all students need to be taught about use of condoms for "safe sex." Acceptance of homosexuality is heavily encouraged in these programs.

Problems: Only students engaging in homosexual encounters, anal sex, or using intravenous drugs are at high risk, so the graphic nature of such programs is unnecessary. Besides, condoms don't protect against HIV fully, or against other STDs well at all. The use of the term 'abstinence' is tossed around, but in the context of condom use, experimentation, not abstinence, is the take-away message students receive.

Examples: "Reducing the Risk of HIV and STD," "Becoming a Responsible Teen," "Be Proud !Be Responsible," and any program endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control or Planned Parenthood, both of which are committed to "safe sex" programs.

Results: Students accept sexual permissiveness as the norm. Classroom activities and studies involving condom use, obtaining contraceptives, and the option of abortion fuel this trend. Marriage-free language and values also accelerate the likelihood of early sexual activity and ongoing irresponsibility.

Other "red-flags" for community concern…..

7.__Teachers/staff who are openly homosexual Not positive role models for students. Close student-teacher relationships are high-risk.

8._ Involvement in your school of radical pro-homosexual groups like GLSEN, PFLAG, & Lambda Legal Defense Fund These groups are well-funded and looking for fights. Any objectors will be subject to public disgrace.

9._Celebrating "gay pride" month or "coming out" day There is nothing to celebrate about encouraging kids to adopt dangerous sexual practices.

10._Exhibits/films on families headed by homosexuals Tries to put a conventional face on problem behavior.

11._ Students & parents with concerns being silenced Intimidation goes hand-in-hand with the expressed goal of "ending homophobia."

12._ Teacher in-service meetings promoting diversity and complaining about "homophobia" Often required now by school systems, these programs foster attitudes of hostility toward tradition-minded parents, who are portrayed as trouble-makers.

----------------------- ------------------------- How Does Your School Score?

8 - 12= A signal that corruption is widespread and entrenched within the system. Look for heavy influence of radical homosexual groups, using attention-hungry teens, parents and teachers to front their issues. Sexual promiscuity is undoubtedly rising among students and teachers, and academics are likely to be suffering. Get the kids you care about out of this school now.

4 - 7= This is a school under assault. The school board has been indoctrinated and the administration and staff probably has many open homosexuals. Parents can save this school only by massive re-education and some big changes at election time.

1 - 3 = Selected administrators and teachers are sympathetic to homosexuality, but there is obviously a core that retains common sense and high standards. Parent involvement will work to turn this school around.

0 = Low-risk for student endangerment. Indicates a school system that genuinely protects students, maintains high health standards and moral integrity, and keeps its focus on education, not social engineering.

This checklist may be copied and duplicated in its entirety for your local use.

In my personal experience, the person to keep an eye on is the HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STAR, and the place to be keeping an eye on him is the LOCKER ROOM DURING GYM CLASS!

Unsupervised students, well, uhhhhhh I could go on, but this would quickly deteriate to XXX.

And, this was all done, without any mention of homosexuality at all.

Just, DOING IT!

A child should be educated about what is and what is not improper behavior. At some point, he/she will be making his/her own choices anyway. But ignoring the issue leads to XXX.

This is the voice of experience, people. Discuss and educate so that young ADULTS can make INFORMED choices LATER!

Letters for You to Send to Your School and Newspaper!

Here's a letter you can use and modify as needed in your situation.

Date

Dear (Principal, Superintendent, School Board member):

As a taxpayer in the ____________ School district, I am appalled to discover that homosexuality (and cross-dressing) is being promoted in our schools.

This is being done by (your use of_________ as a recommended novel; a "gay" club at ______School; a "tolerance" program that encourages acceptance of homosexual behavior; observation of ________Day to spotlight homosexuality; employing openly homosexual teachers; passage of a policy of "non-discrimination" regarding "sexual orientation"; passage of a special policy against harassment based on "sexual orientation"; allowing "gay" activist groups like _______ a forum in our schools).

Homosexuality has no place in our schools. This is not an issue where there are two valid sides, any more than there are two valid sides to drug or alcohol use by students.There is no rational reason to recommend homosexual experimentation to vulnerable and impressionable students. As a behavior, it is totally unnecessary for those participating in this lifestyle. While I feel compassion for those students involved, they need help, not so-called "support" to continue down a dangerous path.

I would like a reply to this letter at your earliest convenience and an explanation for these actions.

Sincerely,

(Your name)



Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

As a parent and taxpayer in the ___________school district, I was appalled to discover that homosexuality is being validated and promoted to impressionable students.

This is being done by (select as appropriate---the use of_________ as a recommended novel; a "gay" club at ______School; a "tolerance" program that encourages acceptance of homosexual behavior; observation of ________Day to spotlight homosexuality; employing openly homosexual teachers; passage of a policy of "non-discrimination" regarding "sexual orientation"; passage of a special policy against harassment based on "sexual orientation"; allowing "gay" activist groups like _______ a forum in our schools).

There are not two sides to the issue of homosexuality when it comes to children. There is no place for this in our schools. This only opens the door to dangerous practices that will have life-long consequences for our precious children. It is obvious that aggressive "gay" activist groups have gotten a toe-hold in the schools.

I would encourage other parents to call school board members and the superintendent. If something isn't done, I would suggest we remove our children from these schools--and vote accordingly in the next school board election.

Sincerely,

(Your Name)

All it takes is about 50 or 60 parents to go down to the school board and tell them they'll pull their kids out and start their own private school (or homeschool them)if they don't knock it off. I don't think parents should threaten to do so unless they are willing and able to do so. The administration has to know they are serious.

About ten years ago, a local school board in my county wanted to extend the school year. This was in a minority school district by the way. The kids could have profited by an extended school year, but the parents didn't want it (their right), and they let the school board and superintendent know that they would pull their kids out if it came to past. They were serious. As a result, there was no extended school year. Parents have more power than they think and can vote with their feet.

I'm for treating every student with respect, but I'm totally against pandering to one group, especially when that group involves itself in risky behaviour that eventually is going to cost me some bucks.

I agree. Look how many parents remove their kids from charter schools that don't meet their expectations. I don't think I've ever heard of a case where parents told the school administration they would remove their kids from the neighborhood public school because they didn't like what was going on until this case in my county. A new day is dawning. Parents now realize they have choices.

Your School's Risk for Encouraging HOMOSEXUALITY

Honestly I would be afraid if they encouraged homosexuality, but I am also really tired of people who spell it out in all CAPS and BIG BOLD TYPE, with our without the panic from multiple exclamation points(!!!).

I am more tired of people freaking out about the "gays" than I am of actual gays.

Only students engaging in homosexual encounters, anal sex, or using intravenous drugs are at high risk, so the graphic nature of such programs is unnecessary.

That statement may be subject to attack. Although the listed activities are certainly at a higher risk than many other types of sex, it is misleading to suggest that heterosexual intercourse does not also carry a high risk of HIV infection, not to mention a host of other STDs.

I read a good one on another thread. If they call you homophobic ask.... why do you HATE my child?

You are trying to change the subject. Objection to Homosexuality for my child is not hateful. As a parent I don't have to justify to you, or give you STATS, it is my JOB to protect my child. I think after thousands of years the best life for my kid is hetrosexual and the most natural.

Then was a GREAT link

A "safe schools" non-harassment program ... Protects dangerous behavior and silences those who believe homosexuality is wrong

Actually, it protects gay kids from being beaten by other students. Bullying can be very harsh in some schools for any child--imagine how awful it could be for a little gay kid? Nobody should have to take beatings. Nobody should have to put up with extreme amounts of verbal abuse, which can drive gay kids to suicide.

I apologize if I sounded a little harsh. The "gay" agenda, when looked into deeply as I have for the last 15 years, is actually a very serious danger. Think Caligula. Think the German homo-cannibal. Think Jeffrey Dahmer. Think the 13 yr old boy who was sex-tortured to death, with zero outcry by the media. Think about one third of child molestation being same sex.

Now you did it, lj. You had to mention child molestations. Here's something worth reading:

Homosexual behavior results in severe health hazards that can affect all of us.

Homosexuals, being around 2% (including bisexuals) of the population, account for a third of child molestations. Sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

There is absolutely no evidence homosexuality is genetic.

Homosexuals can change their behavior. That's just one of many links. You can find more of the same here and here.

Homosexuals must be accepted as the human beings that they are. It's their behavior that we must not accept.

To: little jeremiah
In regards to homosexuality and genetics, the work of homosexual activist Dr. Simon Levay has often been used to support the idea that homosexuality is genetic, and his work is still quoted to this day. But what did Levay really find? Here is what Levay said of his own work:
"It's important to stress what I didn't find. I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn't show that gay men are born that way, the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain."
In 1973 the APA (American Psychiatric Association) declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. According to Levay, it wasn't science that propelled the APAs change, he said "Gay activism was clearly the force that propelled the APA to declassify homosexuality."

Dr. Robert L. Spitzer played a pivotal role in the above 1973 decision made by the APA. Spitzer used to believe homosexuals couldn't change but after studying the results of therapy he now believes homosexuals can change:

"I thought that homosexual behavior could be resisted--but that no one could really change their sexual orientation. I now believe that's untrue--some people can and do change."
Spitzer concluded with: "the mental health professionals should stop moving in the direction of banning therapy that has, as a goal, a change in sexual orientation. Many patients, provided with informed consent about the possibility that they will be disappointed if the therapy does not succeed, can make a rational choice to work toward developing their heterosexual potential and minimizing their unwanted homosexual attractions."

This is amazing information! Homosexuals can change, they can leave their lifestyle! It's not just Spitzer and Levay making the above comments, although they are well known, it's being reported by many different organizations that thousands have left the homosexual lifestyle.

While heterosexual intercourse does carry risk of some STD's, if both partners do not associate with people who do intravenous drugs or with people who practice homosexual behavior (or those who associate with said people) then heterosexual sex carries almost no risk of HIV infection.

Like it or not AIDS really is still just GRIDS (Gay related immune deficiency syndrome)

Of course there should be no hetersexual contact outside of death-do-us-part faithfully monogamous marriage anyway but that's a different rant

I agree that no one should have to put up with abuse.

the error in your post is that there is no such thing as a 'gay' kid. Homosexuality is not an inherent characteristic. It is a curable mental disease. Categorizing kids as 'gay' is the same as categoring them as kleptomaniacs. Until we have kleptomaniac safe-rooms in our schools we should not have safe rooms for any disease.

I think kids are driven to suicide after having a series of same-sex attraction thoughts or activities because they were told "you're gay and you can't change" far more than because they were bullied.

I was bullied relentlessly through much of my school years and I am alive and well. Of course if some helpful counselor had convinced me that I was trapped in a disgusting, abnormal life and told me that I had no hope to ever change it or to achieve the things that are really important (such as a wife and children) then I probably would have suicided too.

Actually, it protects gay kids from being beaten by other students. Bullying can be very harsh in some schools for any child--imagine how awful it could be for a little gay kid?

You're buying into the "gay identity" falsehood. As if a little kid somehow KNOWS that he is attracted to the same sex. Heck, little boys usually don't like hanging around with little girls anyway! As well as little girls ditto. It's normal for little kids to play with others of the same sex and that has absolutely nothing to do with SSAD - Same Sex Attraction Disorder. It's accepted by all reasonable people that sexual attraction to the same sex is a disorder, not inherent, usually if not always caused by a disturbed relationship with parents and/or broken home, as well as childhood molestation. Plus it's often correctable.

Additionally, the figures of the percentages of homosexuals is under or around 2%, and that's for adults.

What I wonder is why you are parroting the crap that the "gay" activists spout.

Wow. I got a response to something I posted more than 6 months ago.

I agree that two virgins have an extremely low risk of contracting HIV. I suppose it would be possible if one of them had been infected by some means other than sex, such as a blood transfusion, which also carries an extremely low risk of infection.

But teenagers who are engaging in sexual activities should not assume that their partners are virgins. Furthermore, sodomy and intercourse are not the only sexual activities that can transmit HIV and other STDs. Many teenagers may wrongly assume that they can engage in other sexual activities with no risk.

I understand what you say but apparently my entire reply didn't register.

1. Teens should not be having any sexual activity at all.

2. If they shun 'homosexuals' (and IV drug users) or anyone who associates with 'homosexuals' then they will be safe from HIV.

We cannot protect them from everything but we can lay out the facts. If they abstain from sexual activity until they get married, and ensure that their future spouse has also abstained, then they'll never have any STD let alone a fatal one.
