Push this Trojan Horse back out of the city gates.
Your sixth grader, Zack, comes home from school. “Mom, Dad, guess what we talked about today? There are kids all over the country who are trying to kill themselves, just because they were born gay or born in the wrong sex body!”
Now, if this doesn’t make you drop the soup spoon, I don’t know what would.
“Yes,” he continues, quite agitated, “and I have to be really careful, so it’s not my fault!”
If you are a well-informed parent, you will sit your son down and separate fact from fiction as you unburden his manipulated young conscience. This is, of course, unless your son is an actual bully. But ninety-nine times out of a hundred, your child has done nothing more than had the “wrong” thoughts – i.e., that two boys dating is kind of weird. But this is no longer permissible in order to eliminate the dreaded “climate of hate.”
Consider yourself lucky: at least Zack told you. Many parents never hear about the nonsense laced into their children’s latest “anti-bullying” lesson. While we all deeply empathize with any parent who has lost a child this way, our American softheartedness is being massaged for full effect. Deceit and deviance have entered the schoolyard, and will bring vastly more tragedy unless we get wise.
All over the country, parents are discovering that “anti-bullying” programs are a carte blanche for sexual deviance promotion. Kids learn that unless they nod approvingly at homosexuality and gender-bending, they are all complicit in the worst damage that can ever happen to a fellow student.
But sometimes, kids are not so easily duped. In Hartford, Connecticut, students were forced to attend a school play that portrayed homosexuality as the norm and heterosexuality as controversial. But when two boy actors kissed onstage, some students booed, got up and left.
