The American Child After Same-Sex Marriage ^ | 2/18/04 | Linda Harvey

Posted on 02/19/2004 3:04:25 AM PST by kattracks

Lesbian bride dolls. Fourth grade "gay" clubs. A king and king at the high school prom. Dating tips for same-sex teens. Bathroom ogling -- and sometimes quick encounters -- in the middle school boys' restroom.

These are just the first snapshots of the bizarre new world in store for American children if homosexual marriage is legalized.

Most of the major players who mold our youth have already endorsed homosexuality and even cross-dressing. The National Education Association, the nation's largest teachers' union, favors support for "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender" students and teachers, which translates into uncritical acceptance throughout the curriculum at your local school.

Ditto with the American Federation of Teachers, the American School Health Association, and the National Association of School Psychologists. The American Association of School Administrators is firmly on board, and the National School Boards Association featured a glowing article in a recent newsletter about the great benefits of "gay" clubs in schools.

The Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Girl Scouts, 4H and the Boys Clubs/Girls Clubs all have adopted policies against discrimination based on sexual orientation, as have most local public school districts in the United States.

Only the Boys Scouts have held off, and have dearly paid the price as homosexual pressure groups try to cut off their funding and bar them from meeting in schools. Once same-sex marriage is the law of the land, any group or school that does not support "equality" and full acceptance of homosexual behavior will be the targets of similar wrath - as well as defendants in lawsuits.

Once legal, these trendy new marriage "rights" are likely to trump any constitutional guarantees of free speech and religious liberty, and local parents who weren't paying attention will watch helplessly as their children are brainwashed - and seduced - into the new behaviors. The practice of bisexuality, currently popular among teens, will skyrocket.

The pro-homosexual agenda directed to children is under way now on a limited scale; all that prevents the tidal wave from sweeping over every child in our country is the official endorsement marriage would provide.

Groups like GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) and PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) have helped start some 2,000 homosexual clubs in American schools. Most are at the high school level, with a few emerging in middle schools. GLSEN's goal is to establish clubs in as many elementary schools as possible using the rationale that these students, who they imply were probably born this way, need "support systems" to avoid harassment and discrimination.

Yet both GLSEN and PFLAG advocate book selections for youth that include positive portrayals of homosexual sex between boys, pornography use, cheating on a spouse with a homosexual lover, homosexual sex between underage youth and adults, and straight and "gay" experimentation by "uncertain" youth.

If homosexual marriage becomes equal to heterosexual unions, then equal opportunities for same-sex and opposite-sex socializing and dating must be made available to youth to avoid accusations of "discrimination." And so more experimentation - with approval by enlightened adults - can be expected to follow.

School literature will be adopted to reflect a positive view of the homosexual family as a future option for every child. Josh will learn that he can grow up and marry a girl or a boy. And since at age 6 he probably hasn't yet discovered his sexual "identity," the fair thing will be to present all angles to him in language, health, music and social studies.

The new wave of openly homosexual teachers, more than willing to fill any teacher shortages in order to interact with budding youth, are sure to help with this increased workload.

But the new paradigm won't dissolve at the schoolhouse door. Television and film, already dominated by sexual minority sympathizers, will introduce creative expressions of the new equality. Children's cartoons will present gender-bending super-heroes. Cross-dressers, feminized boys and masculine girls will appear regularly on Nickelodeon and popular sit-coms. Disney films are sure to be in front of this trend.

In the toy department, shoppers may find new "gay and lesbian" friends of Barbie and Ken, who will probably split up their long romance until group relationships for youth become the next inevitability.

And we could go on and on. The point is, with aggressive, well-funded homosexual activists already in key positions of influence in the media, education, academia and entertainment, "gay" marriage will be their turnkey to launch a brave new world for kids. Too bad so many of our children will have no choice but to live there.

(Linda Harvey is president of Mission America, which monitors the homosexual agenda directed toward youth.)

I must agree with this article when it points out what may happen in our liberal public school system. With the mainstream media openly supporting the gay lifestyle and the schools more than willing to embrace it we are heading down a very slippery slope here. Our children are very impressionable and many will take to this kind of behavior just because it is seen as "in style". Others will embrace it because they have no parents teaching them different.

OMG. Hopefully President Bush will act on this today and put a stop to it all.

I doubt that what is stated in the article couldn't happen.
Shortly we will all be living in a cess pool.
Where is Falwell and Robertson when you need them?

There has to be some federal laws that can protect the general public and what about OUR rights as parents and the DOMA?

We all have RIGHTS to and they are infringing upon our heterosexual rights. Who will stand up for us?

I just wish that they would stop showing those disgusting and nauseating pictures on TV of man/man woman/woman kissing etc.
That has to be the most sickening c*ap on TV yet. So abnormal. No wonder it is an abomination to the Lord.

That's a fact the liberals know but will never admit, sexuality develops. It is an absolute lie to say that your sexual attractions are all genetic. Society and upbringing and personal experience play a key role in the development of a child's sexuality. Liberals have won this part of the gay debate, eventhough it is not true.

We will all have to resort to home schooling, which is what any decent person wanting to protect their children from all this exposure to perversion, should be thinking right now.

Homosexuality is not something you embrace. It is something that you are either born with or you are not. Learned this the hard way : ).

Just watch should hanoi john take the WH, activist judges will get MORE embolden and outlaw home schooling. This election is much more than about which party controls the WH, it's about which direction the soul of America goes.

2-3 Suprem Court judges will retire in the next couple of years. hanoi john will make sure they are pro-abortion and pro-usless nation plan on sexuality...which means anything is permissible, including the ilk of NAMBLA.

This article only touches on a part of the problems our kids will face. I don't think we have any concept of what we are about to see folks. Laugh it off at your family's risk.

While schools and the media sought to destroy whatever moral code this nation had, the fact was that as long as marriage was held to be only between a man and a woman, kids were led to beleive that was the only acceptable 'normal' course of action. Once homosexual union is recognized on an even par with heterosexual marriages, kids will be taught to see very little difference between them.

Once this takes place, the stigma that kept kids from experamenting same sex, will by and large be considered a figment of their partent's outmoded values system. The schools and the media reinforce this constantly.

I submit that people are not just 'born' into same sex lives. I submit that societal norms led boys to shun same-sex adventures because of the stigma such promescuity had associated with it. Without that societal stigma, bi-sexual (read that homosexual) experamentation would mean nothing more to kids than heterosexual experamentation would. We're just kidding ourselves if we think our kids won't be brainwashed into these types of experamentations and relationships. I can even see some of their sex education teachers suggesting, "Without experamentation, how do you know what is right for you?"

It will be open season on these kids as on-campus textbooks, teachers and homosexual clubs propagandize the kids, and implement outreach programs.

In the old days surveys were run that asked kids if they had heterosexual experiences at certain stages of their lives. Now we're going to see a skyrocketing of kids who have engaged in what heretofore would have been considered homosexual relations, by the time they leave highschool, or perhaps even middle school.

We have laughed off the MTV produced sexual and violence laden content for about two decades. Currently there are undertones of homosexual (bi-sexual) adventurism laced throughout the programming. Nothing is portrayed as more sexy these day's than to see two women going at it, on the television or the movies that are directed at our youth.

I would submit that the 1 to 2 percent of the populace that is truly inclined toward homosexuality, will mushroom to something like 10% of our society within ten to twenty years, with as much as 50 to 75% of our youth answering yes to questions of homosexual experamentation by the time they have left high school. It will be sold as 'bi-sexuality, something that is as normal in nature as heterosexuality.'

The time has come when I would not want to try to raise a decent moral child any longer. Parents haven't a snowball's chance in hell of staying the course against the full court press being mounted against them.

Someone higher up this thread said the end is near. If only it were so. I am convinced we are only seeing the beginning of the end. It's going to get very ugly folks.

Twenty five years ago, I was witness to one of these lesbian "family" interactions in a Laundromat in Oshkosh, WI. (besides being home to the EAA and Oshkosh B'Gosh its a liberal state college town)

A young boy about 8yrs or so, his natural mother, and her butch partner were doing the family laundry.

Every time the dyke would tell the boy to do something the kid would promptly ignoring or defy her/him/it

I could not help but cheer (at least inwardly) for the young rebel...

Mom kept trying to tell her son that he must do what 'his dad' told him to...which just set the kid off even more in his defiance..

Finally they took him out to their van and he was forced to stay there while they finished their laundry...

I couldn't help but wonder what became of that boy....he would be in his 30s now....Imagine a society where we had majority population of adults raised as he was....(shouldn't be too difficult we are nearly there)

If this boy continued on his path of righteous rebellion against an 'absurd' father's likely he would be the consummate rebel by the time he reached adulthood... If he reacted to all authority (as he did the dyke's), without a intervention miracle...he most likely ended up a career in perpetual conflict with the law...and a problem for any community he settled in.

The child of that lesbian couple was doomed to fail....thanks to his pseudo family... A human's naturally tendency to rebel is multiplied arithmetically when raised in a climate of little legitimate parental authority let alone an illegitimate one..

Obviously, if there is no moral or intellectual difference between marriage and sex between two men, two women, "transgendered" men and women, then what about younger men and older men. And then, when is "young" too young? If it's good for a young man to experiment with another boy, is it not wiser for him to be "mentored" on his journey.

This is not some homophobic rant. The fact is, the impetus in a relationship between a man and a woman has not, believe it or not, been a sexual destination. Not that sex was "bad", but that it was in fact both good and necessary for procreation (yes, that awful word).

I have some personal experience with gay men and women. The ultimate destination for most is not marriage, a family, and "home and hearth". It is personal fulfillment realized in sex, lots and lots of it for men, and intimacy for women, much more of it than in heterosexual relationships.

Who is the ideal mate for most normal, well adjusted heterosexual men and woman? A verile person of child bearing age (woman), and a good provider (man). Sex is an "added benefit", but not the ultimate destination. Children, home, and family are the ultimate destination.

Who is the idealized mate for a gay person. If he's a man, he wants a "boy", young, smooth, "cut", just like your average pre-pubescent teenager. All that stuff about gays being no more inclined towards young boys is absolute hogwash. Just look at the literature, and you'll understand their cultural norm. Lesbian women, to a lessor extent idealize a younger, but developed woman, about a 16-22 years old. Yes, there are more masculine "Daddy's" or Dykes, or others trend towards being "fems", but again, no gay guy is lusting after a 35 year old "boy".

The utimate destination for this gay culture trip that Liberal American is taking us on is redefinition of the concept of "child molestation". The true child molester in the brave new world of leftist American will be you and I, if we are parents, who have the audacity to raise children with "closed" minds, who object to our children "experimenting" with "mentors".

In the same manner than many in America now consider an 18 year old virgin to be a sad anacronysm, a poor child suffering from a backwards upbringing, in 5-10 years, they will see any 13 year old child who has not experience some sort of gay intimacy in the same manner. It simply has to be, if you follow the left's logical reasoning.

The state will endorse it, in fact, it already has through the Public school curicullum. Better a gay parent than a twisted Christian parent. Just a few more years, now...

The NEA knows well that home schooling & vouchers are the only things standing in the way of their agenda.

Look for repeated attempts to outlaw them both.

Yep! There was actually an EU official a few months ago who said that the UN would ultimately have to force gay marriage on the entire world. He said that with commerce being increasingly global, virtually all laws would need to be international to guarantee "fairness". He gave as an example a Dutch homosexual whose company wanted to put him in charge of a new branch in a country where gay marriage wasn't permitted. To guarantee that this man would have "freedom to travel" and "freedom to accept economic opportunities", the other country would need to be forced to accept gay marriage whether they want it or not.

I keep trying to warn some of these apathetic conservatives that the gay agenda isn't just a "live and let live" deal. The gays may sell it that way, and I saw one on TV the other night saying that all gay marriage means is that two people can do what they want in private and no one else will be affected. He also claimed that if it becomes legal in one state, the other states will be free to continue banning it.

But that isn't true. Once gay marriage is legal in even one state, it will invariably spread to the others, either through full faith & credit or equal protection claims when some gay guy in Massachusetts whines that he can't accept job or educational opportunities in Texas because that state won't sanction his Massachusetts gay marriage.

And as the article above shows, legal gay marriage will lead to a full scale assult on our kids on this issue, from kindergarten forward. As much as I hate hearing these gay activists spouting their propaganda, I hate even worse hearing supposed conservatives saying, "Well, gee, I don't see what the big deal is about allowing gay doesn't affect me or my marriage if two gays tie the knot."

And parents will have to be MUCH more vigilant in checking out the friends their children make at school. Visiting the home of the child inviting your child over is a must today. When my grandchildren moved to a new city recently, my daughter was gratified that several of the mothers came by to get to know her before their children were allowed to come over. That is the way every parent must be in these wicked times.

This will just fall into the pattern that keeps repeating: the left will go too far in imposing its views on others, then the right-thinking families (who don't want to put up with this crap) that make the schools good will all leave, and the schools will then deteriorate. Finally, the leftists will blame the right for the poor condition of the schools.

Same thing with any social problem-- the left blasted the right for condemning and stigmatizing teenage pregnancy, and then turns around and blames the right when it becomes an epidemic and a real social problem.

I don't care what two consenting adults do on their own time. I do care when the public schools become instruments of social indoctrination and social engineering rather than places of learning where kids can learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think.

Homosexuality is not something you embrace. It is something that you are either born with or you are not. Learned this the hard way : ).

Absolutely false. There are a lot of factors that determine sexuality, genetics at most contributes 25%, probably less. It is this lie that traps many people into this lifestyle. Anyone who has any thoughts about it is taught that they are homosexual, which is wrong. Many people are brought into this lifestyle as a result of abuse or rape and some because of a drunken horny state. Sexuality is way too complicated to blame homosexuality on genetics.
