Losing The Gender Wars|
July 2, 2008
As James Madison pointed out in his famous 10th essay in The Federalist, "the primary
source of danger is the propensity of men to form factions enabling a majority to
oppress minorities." *
What Madison didn't count on was the tyranny of the minority. In this case, the
minority of homosexuals and other sexually, well, differently orientated individuals
who are well on their way towards permanently altering the 2,000 year-old tradition
of family and gender roles.
Last weekend saw homosexuals across the world gathering to express their pride.
(I'm not sure what they're so proud of.) Tens of thousands joined gay pride marches
across Europe. Thousands marched in Jerusalem and in San Francisco, lesbians thronged to Dolores Park for their very own annual Dyke Festival and March.
The homosexual agenda is flourishing, having garnered the support of politicians,
educators, various religious factions and of course, the media. In covering the
gay marches in Europe, Brietbart reported, 'Gay pride marches in Europe marred by
Dissenters were cavalierly described as extremists and right-wingers. So now
its official. If you don't actively endorse this alternative lifestyle, you're automatically
labeled homophobic. The voices of those who have moral or societal objections to
homosexuality have been rendered moot.
Government schools are and have been, thoroughly indoctrinating young students into
the belief that homosexuality is now merely a lifestyle option. That gender is optional. In
one Massachusetts school, officials scrambled to accommodate a 13 year-old who decided
he wanted to be a girl.
A state funded organization in Maine is touting a seminar that essentially teaches
kids how to be homosexual. And government schools across the country recently celebrated
the annual 'Day of Silence,' sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education network
(GLSEN). Meanwhile, 3rd graders are treated to the video 'Heather Has Two Mommies'.
In New York juvenile detention centers, a new policy allows confused sensitive youths
to wear girls clothing and be called by feminine names. They can even opt for special
housing if other youths discriminate against them as they prance around in skirts
A doctor at the renown Children's Hospital Boston has launched a new program to
drug children to delay puberty so they can decide which gender they want to be.
That's right. Gender is now considered optional.
Our elected officials, who are so concerned with 'the children,' are actively
supporting this dangerous lifestyle. Two openly gay members of Congress got 50 of
their colleagues to officially join them in promoting the homosexual agenda in Congress.
We now have a House Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus.
Meanwhile, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has appointed
a director for his new Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender voter outreach program.
His wife Michelle is making waves and getting standing ovations from gay groups
as she promises them her husband's complete support.
Across the pond, UK lesbian
mothers recently won landmark parental rights as MP's
voted to remove the requirement that fertility clinics consider a child's need for
a father. Translation: fathers are no longer needed.
In Paris, a fashion show featuring a menswear collection
was a hit as they blurred the gender lines, outfitting
men in lace, ruffles and make-up.
It is now accepted practice for homosexuals to be portrayed in the media in the
most flattering light. Most shows feature at least one sensitive soul bravely standing
up against mean homophobes. Yeah. And let's not forget the lovely commercial Heinz
just launched. They portrayed two men and a young boy as a normal family unit, the
two men exchanging a mouth kiss as one heads off to work. I'm still trying to figure
out what men swapping spit has to do with the sale of mayonnaise.
The normalization of homosexuality and transgendered, uh, people and the celebration
of their lifestyle has gone beyond mere tolerance to the almost complete blurring
of lines between male and female. With ramifications that far exceed personal choice,
affecting both society and the future of our country.
This American is wondering how the rights of less than 5% of the population can
so thoroughly trump the rights of the majority. Especially in light of the fact
that the practice of homosexuality can be deadly to its practitioners and destructive
The number of young homosexual men newly diagnosed with the deadly HIV virus is
rising at the rate of 12% a year. In a Pennsylvania school district, so many cases
of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) were found that the Centers For Disease Control
had to step in to screen students for AIDS.
Research showing that children raised openly by homosexual parents are more likely
to engage in homosexual behavior themselves is swept under the carpet. As are any
and all facts that challenge the notion of homosexuality as natural and normal.
The gay lobby has succeeded in redefining marriage. Now, instead of a social compact
designed to foster children and family units for the good of the country, its meaning
has been expanded to include, well, any combination of individuals at whim. This
essentially marginalizes the institution of marriage, and the institution of family,
which have served as the backbones of our country since its inception.
As Shmuley Boteach points out in Disappearing Babies, "Never before in history has civilization skewed more away
from the needs of the community and toward the aggrandizement of the individual."
At risk is not only the disintigration of the family but the forced coercion of
millions of Americans whose valid objections
are completely ignored. Allowing a
miniscule portion of our population to set the agenda for the rest of the country
is just not right.
