Acceptance and Promotion of Homosexuality
School kids are being taught to accept perversion as normal behavior. This is

of Kansas students are being offered buttons spelling out their preferred gender pronouns. University of Kansas
students are being offered buttons through the school's library system meant to make their preferred gender pronouns
clear. Various University of Kansas Libraries employees now sport the square-shaped pins, with extra ones also doled

College London removes a photo of the former Archbishop of Canterbury from its 'wall of fame' amid student anger about his
views on gay marriage. An image of the former Archbishop of Canterbury has been removed from an alumni 'hall of
fame' at one of Britain's top universities amid outrage over his views on gay marriage. King's College said Lord Carey
of Clifton's image 'did not capture the diversity of our university community' after taking it down from its campus on the
Strand, London, following a long student campaign. The student union crusade was started in 2012 after he sparked outrage
by saying: 'Same-sex relationships are not the same as heterosexual relationships and should not be put on the same level.'
University tells colleges to 'remove gender-specific titles'. Oxford University has told colleges and academic
departments to remove gender-specific titles such as Mr and Mrs from their websites and leaflets. The guidance,
contained in a document from the Equality and Diversity Unit, suggests only academic terms like Dr and Prof should be
retained. It advised that while the process of removing gender-specific titles is underway, people should be given
the option of appearing without any prefix.
Sorority at Tufts Delays Membership for Transgender Student, Half Its Members Quit. Since the beginning of the
semester, more than 40 members of a Tufts University sorority have ditched the group in protest over then national office
delayed its decision on whether to approve membership for a transgender student. Though Alpha Omicron Pi eventually
extended a membership offer to the student, Harper Hopkins, the sorority's national office first hesitated, saying it lacked
a policy on admitting transgender students.
king nor queen: gender-neutral school homecoming may be trend. The University of Nebraska at Omaha has named
its royal homecoming pair, but don't call them king and queen. The school has joined a growing number of other schools
around the county that are moving to gender-neutral homecoming courts to be more inclusive of transgender students. The
trend appears to be part of a larger national dialogue that erupted after a series of so-called "bathroom laws" and other
pieces of anti-LGBT legislation were introduced in statehouses nationwide. UNO administrators supported the change to
dub the school's homecoming winners as "royals," CBS Omaha affiliate KMTV reports.
students to decide their own pronouns. In an effort to be inclusive, the University of Michigan announced
Wednesday it will allow students to designate their own pronouns that will be reflected on class rosters. UM students
can select pronouns such as he, she, him, her, ze — a gender neutral pronoun — or other pronouns they
identify with starting this week. The change is so students can let others know which pronoun they identify with and
expect others to use when referencing them, Provost Martha Pollack and Vice President for Student Life Royster Harper wrote
to students on the Ann Arbor campus.
college lets students pick their 'preferred pronouns,' one decides to milk new policy for all it's worth. When
the University of Michigan, in an attempt to "foster inclusiveness," announced this week that it would allow students to
choose their own "personal pronouns," which faculty and staff would be expected to use when talking to them, Grant Strobl had
an idea. While the school probably thought students would choose "he," "she" or the new gender-neutral pronoun "ze,"
Strobl chose a different one: "His Majesty."
threatens conservative who trolled U-Mich LGBT pronoun rule. Grant Strobl has become a viral internet legend in
the last few days for his epic troll of the University of Michigan's new online pronoun system, which encourages students to
select whatever gender pronoun they wish to be called. The university faculty and staff are required to comply and use
whatever pronoun the student picks, and the pronouns would be distributed to classrooms. Strobl — a UM
student, YAF Chapter Chair, and 2016 Red Alert Politics '30 Under 30' winner — selected the pronoun "His Majesty,"
proving the ridiculousness of the program.
Student Is Now 'His Majesty' After University Of Michigan Lets Everyone Make Up Their Own Pronouns. A
conservative student at the University of Michigan has fairly brilliantly subverted a new campus-wide policy intended to
force professors — and the entire campus community — to use exotic pronouns to refer to students who
insist they belong to some alternate, fictional gender. The student, Grant Strobl, has declared that he shall
henceforth be referred to as "His Majesty, Grant Strobl." Strobl was able to announce his new pronoun because the
taxpayer-funded school launched a new web page allowing students to declare their preferred, "designated" pronouns.
University Providing Tampons in Men's Bathrooms Because 'Both Sexes Menstruate'. Tampons are now a genderless
necessity, according to Brown University, who have announced that they will be providing tampons for both men's and women's
bathrooms across the university this academic year. The tampons will be delivered to bathrooms by the university's
student president, Viet Nguyen, as well as 20 volunteers, with Nguyen claiming the initiative is a means of educating
students that men menstruate as well as women.
in the Men's Restroom. Having long been a leader in political correctness, Brown University has found another
way to embarrass itself and to alienate its alumni. (Among them, yours truly.) Opening up a new frontier in
sensitivity towards the transgendered, Brown has started placing tampon dispensers in men's lavatories. And, they will
be free. Apparently, these are needed by women who believe that they are men and who therefore will insist on using the
bathroom signs not inclusive enough, UNC students claim. Student activists at the University of North Carolina
are hopping mad over the university's decision to replace their all-gender-inclusive bathroom signs with more mundane ones
that comply with federal guidelines. The new signs, the students complain, are not inclusive enough. "I think
people will look at the new signs and think they look similar because you can still use the bathroom whether you're male or
female in accordance with the new signs. But it blatantly excludes people that don't conform to gender binaries,"
student Regan Buchanan told the Daily Tarheel.
The Editor says...
The misguided fools who can't bring themselves to conform to "gender binaries" that have existed for thousands of years (and have only
come into question in the last decade or two) may think they are discovering their true identity by exploring non-standard options, but
in reality they are denying their true identity and believing a lie.

Agenda Puts the Squeeze on California Christian Schools. California Senate Bill 1146, called "the most
oppressive LGBTQ anti-religious proposal in the nation," has yet to pass the state legislature, which is in its final eight
days before adjournment. SB 1146 was designed to force Christian colleges and universities in the state to hire
homosexuals, house students who are openly homosexual, and allow self-designated transgender people to play on sports teams,
use intimate facilities, and live in dorms with the opposite sex. Critics say the bill, sponsored by state Sen.
Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), would ultimately remove Title IX exemptions for nearly all religious schools, forcing
Christian colleges and universities to abandon moral codes for students and faculty and, as originally written, would create
a legal path for lawsuits against religious schools if the institutions seek to uphold biblical decency.
school district: Don't tell parents of transgender males bunking with daughters on field trips. A
Maryland school district is instructing teachers and administrators not to tell parents if their daughters are bunking with
male transgender students on overnight field trips. Bob Mosier, chief communications officer for the Anne Arundel
County public school system, says in a training video on how to accommodate transgender students that privacy issues prevent
the district from informing parents about such arrangements.
University to females: Transgenders can use
your bathroom, don't 'gender police' if a man comes in. The University of South Alabama today [8/15/2016]
debuts a wide-sweeping new policy that allows men who identify as female to use girls' bathrooms. In announcing the new
policy, it also admonished students not to "gender police" if someone of another biological sex saunters into the
restroom. "There is no rule that a person must look a certain way to use a certain restroom. This kind of 'gender
policing' is harmful. Individuals should not have to dress or groom in a way that conforms to someone else's gender
standards," the university stated in its FAQ section announcing the new policy.
'Gayest College In America' Has Not Suppressed Anatomically Correct Singular Pronouns. An Oberlin College student has taken to the
page of the Washington Blade — the nation's oldest newspaper specializing in news for gay people — to tell America why she "chose the
gayest college in America" and why she is really sad that some students won't stop using anatomically-correct pronouns. The dedicated lesbian,
Jesse Arnholz, says she chose famously politically correct, generally whiny Oberlin College — a 3,000-student student in college where
a year of tuition, fees and room and board costs costs $66,602 — because she "needed to go somewhere very queer." She was "seduced
by Oberlin's history" as an enclave of progressivism, she explains in the 744-word exercise in navel-gazing.
School 'Gender Unicorn' Sparks Parental Outrage. A protest was held Tuesday [8/9/2016] after a school district
in North Carolina created a "gender unicorn" to teach staff and faculty about gender identity, gender expression and
transgenderism. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), a school district in Charlotte, N.C., created a purple unicorn
with two hearts to explain transgenderism in training materials for school staff, reports WCNC. The school district will use
the training materials to teach staff and faculty how to best help transgender students. The North Carolina Values Coalition
led a protest against CMS' plans to let transgender students use the pronouns, name and bathroom according to their gender
identity. Speakers at the protest said that new CMS policy infringes on student privacy.
Grief: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Want To Stop Calling Kids Boys And Girls. Why can't hardcore nutjob
moonbat liberals just let kids be kids? Why do they have to push their crazy ideas on kids? Why can't they just
mind their own business and, oh, say, teach them subjects which will allow them to be functional members of society?
would prevent LGBT discrimination at religious schools. A bill moving through the [California] Legislature
would remove a longstanding exemption from anti-discrimination laws for religious institutions, potentially exposing the
schools to civil rights lawsuits from students and employees.
court deals blow to Christian law school. In April 2014 the Law Society of Upper Canada announced it would not
accept graduates of TWU's proposed program, because it deemed discriminatory the school's community covenant that requires
students to abstain from sexual activity outside marriage between a man and a woman. After TWU appealed the decision,
last year a three-judge panel ruled against the school, even though the judges agreed a religious freedom violation had occurred.
school dials back 'bias response team' amid censorship complaints. After Heat Street reported earlier this
month on how the University of Northern Colorado's Bias Response Team policed speech on campus and in the classroom, a
university spokesperson has told the local newspaper "there are some pieces that we can do better next time." "We do
not want to be in the process of censoring — that is not the intent," the dean of students, Katrina Rodriguez, told the
Greeley Tribune this week. After reviewing more than 200 pages of records, Heat Street revealed that the Bias
Response Team had asked professors to change their teaching style and lessons after students reported being offended. In both
cases, the professors had asked their students to weigh opposing arguments about social issues, including gay and transgender rights.
Profs Investigated for Acknowledging Existence of Other Opinions. Whether transgender is a real thing, a
psychological condition, or the result of a science fiction experiment brought to life by a howler monkey on meth is
irrelevant. Honestly, the professor not having expressed his personal opinions on the matter is irrelevant. What
is relevant is that American college students just can't handle opinions different from their own. This is just another
element in a phenomenon many have been watching since the fiasco at the University of Missouri brought whiny college liberal
tantrums to our attention. These students, who are allegedly adults, are unable to handle even the concept that someone
doesn't conform to their worldview.
LGBT activists' sinister plan to crack down on Christian schools. If California Democrats have their way,
Christian colleges and universities will no longer be allowed to require students attend chapel services or require them to
profess a relationship with Jesus Christ. Senate Bill 1146 would close a loophole that lawmakers say allows Christian
universities to discriminate against students based on their gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.
"All students deserve to feel safe in institutions of higher education, regardless of whether they are public or private,"
said Senator Ricardo Lara, the author of the legislation. "California has established strong protections for the LGBTQ
community and private universities should not be able to use faith as an excuse to discriminate and avoid complying with
Gender Identity Standards Surprise Some Washington Parents. Kaeley Triller Haver is no stranger to the transgender bathroom
debate. After being sexually assaulted as a child and going public with her story, the single mom from Washington state now opposes
shower, locker room, and bathroom policies that she believes leave her and her daughter vulnerable and unsafe. So earlier this month,
when she found out that Washington public schools quietly adopted a new set of health education standards that include teaching kindergartners
about gender expression and identity, Triller Haver was shocked she wasn't involved. "The only way I found out was through a Facebook
post," Triller Haver told The Daily Signal. "Not really the way any parent should discover information this critically important to
their child's life."
boys can wear skirts to school — as new 'gender neutral' uniforms introduced. Eighty state schools are allowing
boys to wear skirts and girls to wear trousers under new government-funded "gender neutral" uniform policies. The
schools have either dropped references to girls and boys in their dress codes or have rewritten their uniform policy to say
that pupils as young as five can dress in the uniform in which they feel most comfortable. It is part of a
government-funded drive for schools to be more sensitive to "trans" children who are questioning their gender identity.
Not Fair': Transgender Student's Success in Girls Track Causes Backlash. An Alaska transgender student's
success against female runners — including capturing all-state honors — is causing a backlash among parents and her
rivals. Haines High School senior Nattaphon Wangyot, who was born male and identifies as female, took fifth place in
the Alaska high school girls 100-meter finals and third place in the 200-meter race on May 27.
The Editor says...
Of course he did well. He's not a girl. But what can the school do about the unfair competition between males and females when
they've been trying for decades to teach the kids to think of gender as an imaginary "social construct"?
School Proposes Removing Urinals and Making Bathrooms Gender Neutral. A nationally ranked Minnesota charter school facing a
discrimination complaint by the parents of a former kindergarten transgender student approved a controversial new gender inclusion policy
at a school board meeting. While the school board, which consists of a mix of parents, teachers, and community members, overwhelmingly
voted in favor of the new policy Monday night, some parents are upset with the outcome. "What has happened at Nova is unthinkable," a
mother with two children at the school told The Daily Signal. "A classical school based in logic and reason has taken the most radical
approach possible, that of affirming gender fluidity."
Teacher Gets $60k After Co-Workers Won't Call Her 'They'. A "transmasculine" teacher at an Oregon elementary
school has been awarded $60,000 by her school district as compensation for harassment she claims to have suffered on the job,
including being referred to by the wrong pronoun. According to The Oregonian, Leo Soell was born a woman, but now
prefers to identify as "transmasculine" and "genderqueer," meaning she does not consider herself to be male or female.
After getting breast cancer in late 2014, she had her breasts amputated to create a more masculine appearance and changed her
name to Leo. Once she returned from medical school in May, 2015, Soell was fully public with her gender-neutral identity.
The freaks have become militant victims:
principals group: Transgender students are not 'those' kids. They're 'our' kids. We can't ignore
the research that reveals transgender students are more likely to feel unsafe and be victimized in school. And fear for
their safety causes one in three of these students to miss at least one day of school each month. The research links a
90 percent school attendance rate closely to academic success, so more absences means less learning, lower grades, and a
smaller chance of success after high school. In short, kids who live in fear don't learn very well.
The Editor says...
The power-hungry state constantly tries to take possession of (or just assume ownership of) all school children. You
are expected to enroll your children in government schools by age six, and keep them there through high school. There they
will be subjected to government indoctrination most of the day, and unless you want them to be unprepared for anything other
than a life of dependency (or prison), you had better un-teach all the anti-capitalist, anti-American, environmentalist, and
homosexual propaganda they learn at school on a daily basis. Not to mention the incomprehensible nonsense that is
currently being peddled in place of mathematics. Or you could go the extra mile and teach your kids at home.

[H]ow about the coming swarm of transvestites, transsexuals, Tim Curry impersonators, and just general perverts ready to descend on public-school
girls' bathrooms and locker rooms? That comes courtesy of America's own would-be caudillo Barack Obama, who has decided the plight of
trannies with an urge to drain the main vein is the civil rights cause of our time. So urgent, he's decided, that constitutional niceties
like the separation of powers and federalism must go by the wayside. His administration put out a letter to the nation's 98,000 public
schools, not a single one of which is run by the federal government, demanding they allow sexually confused boys into the girls' rooms and
vice versa. The letter went even further, resisting any attempt to define eligibility for such treatment — if a boy determines he
"feels" like a girl on a given day and demands entry into a girls' bathroom the school shouldn't question his judgement.
Prof. Offers Extra Credit if Students Lobby Against Legislation. A University of Wisconsin Madison
professor offered students in her LGBTQ studies class extra credit if they visited the state Capitol on Thursday to testify
against a bill she opposes. Dr. Elizabeth Cabell Hankinson Gathman is a graduate of UW Madison's sociology
department and this semester she is teaching Intro to LGBTQ Studies (SOC/GWS 200), a required class for students in
the LGBTQ studies certificate program. On Wednesday [11/18/2015], Prof. Gathman related to her students that she
would give them extra credit on their final course grade if they went to the state Capitol to testify in opposition to AB
469, a bill that establishes uniform policies for how Wisconsin public schools will handle locker room and restroom
accommodations for transgender students.
from Obama's transgender school bathrooms. Barack Obama's transgender regime has officially carried its demands
for your child's compliance with sexual deviancy to the level of an imperial directive: [...] The Department of Justice,
which apparently now means primarily "social justice," aka cultural Marxism, is joining the Department of
Education — a thoroughly anti-constitutional entity the continued existence of which represents the greatest
failure of the Reagan presidency — to complete American compulsory schooling's true, original, and essential
mission: the reduction of the population to a confused, helpless mass of spiritually unindividuated "worker units" for the
benefit of a permanent corporate-political ruling elite.
in the girls' bathroom. The diktat comes in the form of a letter from the Justice Department's Office of Civil
Rights stating that "when a student or the student's parent or guardian ... notifies the school administration that the
student will assert a gender identity that differs from previous representations or records, the school will begin treating
the student consistent with the student's gender identity." Schools are forbidden from seeking to verify a student's "gender
assertion." In short, there will no longer be any single sex locker rooms or showers in America's public schools.
You could not have found a conservative fever swamp in 2008 in which anyone would have predicted a slide so far and fast into
such absurd relativism within the short (but seemingly endless) span of a single presidency.
push for trans rights in US schools is simply insane. Sheer lunacy: That's the only way to describe the
Obama administration's decision to enforce the full "trans rights" agenda on the nation — in public
accommodations, and in school bathrooms and locker rooms. Yes, polite society in progressive precincts has embraced the
idea that those with non-standard "gender identities" deserve the same protections as racial and other minorities. But
that idea surely never entered the mind of any lawmaker who voted for (or against!) the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or any of
the other laws Team Obama is citing as authority for its actions.
'Transgender' Plan: Exclude Parents, Let Officials Handle Childrens' Sexual Problems. President Barack
Obama's new transgender plan for K-12 schools recommends parents be secretly excluded from any decisive role when their
children experiment with sexual "gender identities" as male or female. The exclusion of parents from their children's
life-and-death, prosperity-or-suicide, teenage development is explicitly approved by Obama's Democratic Party aides in a
nine-page, May 13 legal directive, dubbed a "Dear colleague" letter.

Students Can't Explain The Difference Between Man And Woman. A new video shows Seattle University students
struggling to say how men and women are different, if they're even different at all. The Family Policy Institute of
Washington released a video this week where it interviewed students at Seattle University about gender identity and
transgender bathrooms. The students soon struggle to explain how gender is actually fluid ... kinda. "I don't
think there is really any one way to distinguish between a man and a woman, and I don't think it's necessary," one student says.
Students Now Required To Adopt Transgender Newspeak. Under a new set of guidelines rolled out last week by
Chicago public schools, children will now be required to address transgender students and employees by their preferred name
and pronouns — or face the consequences. Transgender students and employees can choose their preferred
bathroom, locker room, name and pronouns, and everyone else is required to affirm the individual's new identity, according to
administration to issue decree on bathroom access for transgender students. The Obama administration will issue
guidance Friday to all public school districts in the U.S. telling them to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms
that match their gender identity, according to The New York Times. While the letter doesn't have the force of law, it
does carry a threat: Schools that don't comply could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid. It is signed by
officials at the Justice Department and Department of Education.
Promote Rainbow Badges for Teachers, Staff at Public Schools to Identify as LGBT 'Allies'. The federal
government's anti-bullying website posted a blog last month touting the OUT for Safe Schools program started by homosexual
activists in the Los Angeles, Calif., public schools where "rainbow badges" are worn by teachers and staff to identify them
as "allies" of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender students. "School continues to be a dangerous place for lesbian,
gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth," said the April 19 blog, which was written by staff from the Los Angeles LGBT
Center and the Department of Education. The blog said that 30,000 rainbow badges were provided to Los Angeles Unified
School District (LAUSD) teachers, administrators and staff "to wear voluntarily that proudly identify themselves as allies
and protectors of students who are LGBT."
Chicago Schools Bathroom Policy Proves Liberals' Extreme Agenda. Chicago Public Schools announced on Monday [5/2/2016]
that students and staff must be granted unfettered access to intimate school facilities based on their chosen gender identity.
Put concretely, boys now have the "right" to undress in the girls' locker room before gym class so long as they say they would feel
more comfortable doing so. Kids and teens have many things to worry about as they grow into adulthood and get an education.
But having to deal with people of the opposite sex in their bathrooms and showers shouldn't be one of them. This latest front in
the bathroom wars proves that same-sex marriage was merely the start, not end, of the left's LGBT agenda.
Wants Fort Worth Superintendent to Resign. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Monday called for the
resignation of Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent Scribner over new guidelines dealing with transgender students.
"After less than a year as superintendent, Dr. Scribner has lost his focus and thereby his ability to lead the Fort
Worth ISD," Patrick said in a statement. "He has placed his own personal political agenda ahead of the more than 86,000
students attending 146 schools in the district by unilaterally adopting 'Transgender Student Guidelines.'" Patrick's
statement came in response to Scribner's recent approval of a set of guidelines that instruct district employees to "acknowledge
the gender identity that each student consistently and uniformly asserts."
Demise of a Once-Catholic University. At Georgetown, the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher
learning in the U.S., the official teachings of the church against homosexuality have been set aside. Wednesday is the
occasion for a "Lavender Graduation" event, described as "a special ceremony for LGBTQ and Ally undergraduate and graduate
students," in order to "acknowledge their achievements, contributions, and unique experiences at Georgetown University."
Before this eyebrow-raising event was set to occur, Georgetown University hosted Cecile Richards, president of Planned
Parenthood, which is responsible for 40 percent of all reported abortions committed in the United States. The
student newspaper reported that Richards spoke "by invitation" from the student-sponsored Lecture Fund, which is funded
by the university, and that she spoke about "reproductive justice" and "women's reproductive rights."
school district seeks to lead in transgender equality. The borough has never been afraid to take a stand for
progressive values, even if it meant making a little noise, said Darcie Cimarusti, president of the Highland Park Board of
Education. Which is why Cimarusti and other officials and experts were not afraid to say that the state has not gone
nearly far enough in addressing transgender and gender diverse equality with statewide policy. So, the Highland Park
Board of Education plans on taking its own action, and is scheduled to vote early next month on a new policy that officials
and experts say could be the most dynamic in New Jersey in addressing transgender equality.
Believing in two genders is a 'hate crime'
under police investigation at Loyola Marymount University. [Scroll down] Both the police and the
university's Bias Incident Response Team are investigating the stated belief that only two genders exist, male and female, as
a hate crime. A Loyola alumni office employee discussed her views on sexual orientation, which align with the Roman Catholic
Church, with three students who were hanging up posters on the subject on April 14. Cosette Carleo, one of the students
involved, told The College Fix in a phone interview that the hate crime under investigation is "denying transgenderism."
Carleo's account agrees in part with an email by the husband of the employee with whom she tangled. The employee told Carleo,
who identifies as gender-neutral, that only two genders exist, male and female, according to the student. Carleo told
The Fix that statement was the hate crime.
Rights Divisions. For instance, under the Office of Civil Rights within the Department of Education (DOE),
public schools will now be in violation of Title IX if they do not permit transgender students to use the locker room
or bathroom of their choice. At an LGBT Summit hosted by the White House and attended by officials from seven different
federal agencies in Michigan last Thursday, the DOE Assistant Secretary for the Office of Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon
assured the LGBT community that the White House would be "aggressively engaged" in the fight to allow transgender students
use whichever bathroom they please at school. As Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller reported, the event was co-sponsored
by the activist group Equality Michigan, which has led the charge to allow schoolchildren to choose their name, gender, and
bathroom without parental knowledge or input. This radical interpretation of Title IX was in fact upheld by Judge
Henry Floyd, whom Obama appointed to the fourth circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
Parents Sue To Get Trans Classes In Kindergarten. Parents of a 5-year-old "transgender child" have filed a
complaint against a St. Paul charter school, alleging it failed to protect him from bullying and refused to teach all
the students their preferred transgender-awareness curriculum. David and Hannah Edwards, whose child was born a boy but
now thinks he's a girl, has filed with the city's Department of Human Rights, claiming their child "wasn't able to take full
advantage of Nova's educational opportunities because of her gender identity and expression. This violated her rights."
school rules give transgender students 'right to be who they are'. When a transgender girl graduated in white
gown from Springfield Township High School, her parents made an unusual request for two diplomas: one for her, with her new
female name, and one for them, with her male birth name. Springfield administrators say they complied without hesitation as
they, like many public and private schools, increasingly are being asked to accommodate students who have switched name and
gender. The small Montgomery County district, however, has gone a step further than most.
Court: Schools May Not Provide Separate Bathrooms Based on Biology. On Tuesday [4/19/2016], the Fourth
Circuit Court ruled against a Virginia school district that sought to accommodate a transgender student while also protecting
the privacy rights of other students. The court concluded that Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 —
which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex — should be interpreted as prohibiting discrimination on the
basis of gender identity, as a Department of Education letter suggested in 2015. The ruling allows a lawsuit brought
by a transgender student to proceed.
Court Favors Transgender Student in Virginia Restroom Case. Weeks after a new North Carolina law put transgender bathroom access
at the heart of the nation's culture wars, a federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., ruled on Tuesday [4/19/2016] in favor of a transgender student
who was born female and wishes to use the boys' restroom at his rural Virginia high school. Advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
people note that the ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit applies to North Carolina, where the controversial law
approved last month limits transgender people to bathrooms in government buildings, including public schools, that correspond with the gender listed
on their birth certificates.
teacher suspended for diversity questionaire asking 7th, 8th graders sexual orientation and disabilities. A
teacher was suspended from her Florida school pending the administration's investigation into a form she handed to students
asking, "How much privilege do you have?" Tampa teacher Yoselis Ramos asked her 7th and 8th graders at Monroe Middle School
to label themselves with topics beyond what's found on a typical diversity questionnaire, according to WTSP-TV. To the
parents dismay, the form asked students in Ramos' Spanish class whether they were gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, cisgender
or genderqueer. It also probed their religion, skin color and disabilities.
teacher who quizzed middle schoolers over 'privilege' resigns. A Tampa middle school Spanish teacher who incited parental
outrage with a student questionnaire about "privilege" resigned on Thursday [4/14/2016]. First year teacher Yoselis Ramos, 23, asked
her seventh- and eighth-grade students at Monroe Middle School last week to fill out an assignment titled "How much privilege do you have?"
that inquired about sexual orientation, race, gender identity, mental illness and other personal information. The assignment asked
students to circle the terms that apply to them, and provided options including "queer gender," "pansexual," "cisgendered," and "asexual,"

Ordered To Apologize For Conservative Blog Post, Or Lose His Job. The tribulation of political science
professor John McAdams began nearly a year and a half ago. McAdams has long run a blog called Marquette Warrior where he
frequently voices conservative views on both Marquette and national issues. In the fall of 2014, he wrote about an incident
between a Marquette undergraduate and a graduate student, Cheryl Abbate, who was teaching a philosophy course. Abbate was
discussing how the philosophy of John Rawls could be used in modern political debates, and so spent some time engaging in short
debates over various political issues. But when she reached gay rights as an issue, she skipped over it, allegedly stating
that "everybody agrees on this."
Schools To Let Students Choose Gender, Name And Bathroom. Michigan's State Board of Education has drafted a guidance that would
push the state's schools to allow all students, regardless of parental or doctoral input, to choose their gender, name, pronouns, and bathrooms.
Spearheaded by board president John C. Austin and signed by state superintendent Brian Whiston, the guidance informs Michigan public schools
that only the students themselves — i.e. not their parents or doctors — can determine what their individual gender identities

Brighton, a favorite of the politicians, leading the way. The kids at Blatchington Mill School were assigned, as part of their
homework, to choose from a list of 23 terms to describe their "gender." (Even the English, like their American cousins,
no longer understand that "gender" is none of your business unless you're a noun in pursuit of a hot pronoun.) If you're
a 10 o'clock scholar at Blatchington Mill School, you can choose to be a boy or a girl (if you insist), and even better, to
be a genderqueer, a gender nonconformist, a tomboy, a transboy, a demi-boy, a demi-girl, or even something called "genderfluid,"

Students Earn Academic Credit for Building LGBTQA-Themed Light Displays. Parents typically work especially hard

the Gay-Marriage Ruling Means for Education. Like fascists, Communists, and boy-band
producers, the American Left has always believed it could fine-tune human nature if it could only
"get 'em while they're young." That's why the Left works so hard to impose its will on schools and
universities. As John Dewey, America's high priest of educational progressivism, explained in 1897,
the student must "emerge from his original narrowness" in order "to conceive of himself" as a cog in
the larger social order. Last week's gay-marriage ruling will yield a new wave of liberal efforts
to ensure that schools do their part to combat wrong-headed "narrowness."
Insists High School Girls Stare at Naked Boy Who Thinks He's a Girl. [T]he federal government has now mandated
that high school girls be forced to change and shower in their locker rooms next to mentally ill biological boys who think
they're girls. On Monday, the federal government ruled that a Chicago high school could no longer merely allow a transgender
girl [...] into the girls' locker room: they had to allow him to change, shower, and do all the other activities the girls do
with the girls present.
is what Americans think about transgender students in locker rooms. Earlier this month, a suburban Chicago
school district erupted in anger after a high school agreed to allow a transgender girl to change in the girls' locker room.
The school's decision came after the girl had filed a Title IX complaint with the Department of Education's Office of Civil
Rights (OCR). The Obama administration, through OCR and other agencies, has taken the position that transgender discrimination
is a form of sex discrimination — and had intervened on behalf of the transgender girl. In public meetings, parents
in District 211 were furious, arguing against the OCR's mandate. Those parents' opposition nearly scuttled the agreement
between the OCR and the school district. As of this writing, the transgender girl will be changing in the girls' locker room,
in a private curtained area that will be available to any student who prefers privacy when she changes. This decision applies
only to the student in the case, and is not a district-wide policy.
The Editor says...
People who undergo a sex change, whether real or imaginary, who then want us all to pretend they were born in their artificial state,
are entirely responsible for any adverse reactions that follow. The so-called discrimination that they encounter is completely
avoidable, and the person undergoing an unnatural and perverse transformation is to blame.
School District Settles With Feds To Let Cross-Dressing Boy Shower In Girls' Locker Room. Facings federal
threats of lost millions in funding for the children of taxpaying parents, a school district in the suburbs of Chicago voted
on Thursday [12/3/2015] to allow a male high school student who dresses like a girl and otherwise identifies as female to use
the girls' locker room and shower there. The student will use a separate, semi-private area in the girls' locker room
of his public high school.
DOE is now in the High School Girl's Shower. The Civil Rights Division of the DoE declared a new cultural
battleground when it sent a letter to Dr. Daniel Cates, Superintendent of the Township High School District 211, a school
district near Palentine, Illinois, accusing the district violating anti-discrimination laws when it did not allow a
transgender student who identifies as a girl to change and shower with the girls in the girls' locker room without
restrictions. The DoE gave the district 30 days to accommodate the transgender student or lose its
Title IX funding. The problem began when the transgender student's family filed a complaint with the
U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights (OCR), because the student was not allowed to shower with
the female students. The student filing the complaint is biologically male, but self-identifies as female.
The school made arrangements to accommodate transgender students by providing separate, private facilities for the
student to use to use. This was not satisfactory for this student.
Francisco Elementary School Adopts 'Gender-Neutral' Bathrooms. Miraloma Elementary, a grade school in San
Francisco, has instituted a policy of gender-neutral bathrooms. The school is changing restroom door symbols accordingly.
"There's no need to make them gender-specific anymore," Miraloma Principal Sam Bass told the website SFGate.com. "One parent
said, 'So, you're just making it like it is at home.'" A 2013 California law requires schools to allow students to use
the bathroom consistent with their gender identity, and San Francisco has had a similar policy on the books since 2003.
School Adds Gender-Neutral Kindergarten Bathroom. The first San Francisco elementary school to make bathrooms
gender neutral has proudly removed the circles, triangles, and stick figure signs from the kindergarten and first-grade
bathrooms that delineate the differences between the sexes. Principal Sam Bass of Miraloma Elementary said the change at
the beginning of the school year was prompted by the needs of six to eight students who are outside calling themselves simply
boys or girls, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Bathrooms for children older than first grade will be altered
in coming years, even outside bathrooms that have multiple stalls.
Now Lets Students Choose Whichever Pronoun They Want. Harvard University has become the latest and certainly
the most notable American university to hop on the bandwagon of letting students choose personalized pronouns for themselves.
As reported by The Harvard Crimson, the online registration tool for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) now includes a page
where students can input not only their chosen gender but also the specific pronoun they wish to go by. Besides traditional
pronoun sets like "she, her, hers," students can also choose options like "they, them, theirs" (referring to a single person)
and "ze, hir, hirs."
girls stage walk-out to avoid sharing locker room with poorly disguised boy. This boy is not merely looking for
a bathroom he can supposedly feel comfortable in; he wants to shove his new "gender" in the girl's faces. This is all about
activism and forcing other people to accept the transvestite agenda, and in this case, the other people are young girls, who
should be protected from this kind of ridiculousness.
and Transgender Groups Celebrate Ohio School District's 'Gender Neutral' Bathrooms. School districts across the
country are rushing to make policies for the tiny number of students who claim to be transgender. The latest to make
such a policy is the Troy, Ohio, school district which has added a "gender neutral" bathroom policy, causing gay and
transgender groups to descend upon the town to celebrate the decision.
It would only be newsworthy if these protests didn't happen.
Teenagers Protest a Transgender Student's Use of the Girls' Bathroom. A transgender high school student in
Missouri is facing backlash from her peers after requesting to use the girls' bathrooms and locker room. More than
100 students at Hillsboro High School, about an hour south of St Louis, walked out of class on Monday in protest.
"I'm hoping this dies down," said Lila Perry, the 17-year-old who began identifying as a girl publicly in February.
"I don't want my entire senior year to be like this."

How About You? I am tired of the "It Takes a Village" mindset which claims special
insight in what our children should learn and how they must be taught. [...] I am tired of a school
system which indoctrinates rather than educates. Don't indoctrinate our children into acceptance of
socialism or homosexuality. Alumni who give to these systems are just as guilty as those who teach
in them or run them. And parents, take the time to see what they are teaching your kids; from global
warming nonsense to sex they are teaching your kids things that will make you angry. Stand up and
opt out. You should decide what your child needs to know and what he is to be taught.

The caller said he didn't know what to do. Plante, who is from a Catholic background, said, "Send him

Queer theory has taken over student life on many campuses. Now that gay identity has been thoroughly
institutionalized, declaring oneself "trans*," "genderqueer," "pangender," or any of the other
rapidly multiplying alternative sexes has become the last frontier of self-engrossed agitation available
to students. But apart from the odoriferous leavings of female ginko trees, the "problem" of gender
and plants did not seem to be a pressing one, making the application of queer theory to agriculture an
innovation that even the most dogged observers of identity studies might not have seen coming.
Decoding the Left.
Liberal academics speak like this because they're obsessed with identity politics. They see society
as organized into groups and are determined to refer to those groups without sounding offensive. And
since the threshold for offense has been lowered to the level of a limbo bar at a drunken house party, the
English language must be rinsed and sterilized accordingly. Hence "non-binary POC," which sounds like
something I forgot during a high school chemistry quiz.

repeal is likely to be broad, since the city's Human Rights Act will prohibit religious schools from
acting in accordance with their beliefs regarding sexual morality in decisions related to funding,
facilities, campus organizations, benefits, etc. The schools cannot even withhold "endorsement,
approval or recognition" of those promoting messages at odds with the religious teachings of the
school about appropriate sexual conduct. While other states have been acting to protect religious
liberties, D.C. is trying to narrow the permissible decisions and even speech of religious schools.

Schools' New LGBTTQ+ Policy Includes Gender-Free Pronouns Xe, Xem and Xyr. The
Vancouver (British Columbia) Board of Education has approved a sweeping new policy for accommodating
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning and "all sexual and gender
identities," including the creation of three pronouns, replacing masculine and feminine with xe, xem
and xyr (pronounced ze, zem and zur). Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both
feminine and masculine spirits. It's not limited to gender expression or sexuality, but encompasses
them both while incorporating a spiritual element.

Principal Allows Male Freshman To Use Girls Bathroom And Changing Areas. A high school
in Louisville, Ky. is allowing a male freshman student to use changing areas in a girls locker room
and one of two girls bathrooms because the student wants to be a girl. The transgender student
attends Atherton High School in a tree-lined neighborhood of the city, reports The Courier-Journal.
The unidentified student was born male and is, by all accounts, still male. However, because he
identifies himself as a female, he asked for and received permission from Thomas Aberli, Atherton
High's principal, to use a bathroom and a locker room marked for girls at the school. At least
seven students and around a dozen parents have complained.

causing a distraction among 10 and 11-year-old students.
Confusion and the Complicity of Public Schools. Last week, the national press reported on a 56-year-old
high school biology teacher in California who plans to undergo a sex-change operation (i.e. cosmetic surgery) and to
return to the classroom appearing as a woman. "To have a teacher be authentic ultimately is good for students
and for the community," said Jennifer Levi of Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, or GLAAD, an advocacy group in
Boston. Sadly, the situation is far more complicated and confusing than advocates of gender confusion or their
allies in the media will admit.

Federally funded sex ed
program teaches Hawaii middle schoolers that butts are genitals. A member of Hawaii's House of Representatives is criticizing
an ambitious, federally funded sex education program currently in use in 12 of the state's public schools. The pilot curriculum, called
"Pono Choices," targets 11- to 13-year-old students. ("Pono" is a Hawaiian word that basically means "good" or "moral.") Its
creators include the University of Hawaii and, of course, Planned Parenthood. Rep. Bob McDermott, a Hawaii Republican, claims that the
curriculum is "not age appropriate and not consistent with state policy" [...]
Maine's highest court:
Transgender student's rights were violated. The rights of a transgender girl from Orono were violated when school administrators
made her use a staff bathroom at her elementary school instead of the girls' restroom, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled Thursday [1/30/2014].
The ruling is the first in which a state supreme court has affirmed a transgender person's right to equal access to restrooms in places of public
Moral Intelligence and Public School
Bullying. On December 4, 2013 Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.5-million member American Federation of Teachers (AFT), spoke
on C-Span about bullying, particularly of gay students. Ms. Weingarten said, with surprise in her voice, that she doesn't understand why gay
students are still bullied in public schools, because in 2013, "It's cool to be gay." She also said she is gay, and now speaks about it
openly. [...] As Ms. Weingarten talked about the love that not only dares speak its name but never shuts its yap, I imagined how it would sound if a
heterosexual male schoolteacher said, "The way I do sex is cool."
ENDA Would Grant Transgender
Rights to Elementary School Teachers. It's hard to imagine that in the year 2013 that any business in the country could fire someone simply
because he is gay without facing a major backlash and boycotts. So does the country now need a new federal law prohibiting such discrimination by
N.J. high school athletic director who was targeted for being a lesbian awarded $800K. A jury in New Jersey has awarded $800,000 to a former

'harassed' in school bathroom by transgender student told his rights trump their privacy. The rights of a transgendered Colorado high school
student are being put ahead of girls the boy harasses in the girls bathroom. A male student at Florence (CO) High School who claims to be
transgendered has caused controversy by harassing female students in the girls room, but will not face any discipline — this despite
vocal protests from the girls' parents.
Los Angeles school district
wants teachers to wear pro-gay badges. Los Angeles public schools are encouraging teachers and staff to wear badges that identify
them as "LGBT allies" and supporters of the pro-gay movement. Superintendent John Deasy kicked off the effort Thursday [10/10/2013], which
he said was necessary to prevent gay kids from being bullied.
Public Schools "Celebrating" LGBT History Month. What are your kids
studying in school today? Public schools from California to Florida are celebrating LGBT History Month, where they highlight a homosexual or
lesbian each day. [...] "If parents think our school children should be focused on science and math, not sex and murder, they need to talk to teachers,
principals, and school boards to ensure that this program is stopped," cautions Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.
California teen named nation's first
transgender homecoming queen. In what is being described as the first known event of its kind, a transgendered teen was named as her high school's
homecoming queen on Friday [9/20/2013]. "I am so proud to win this not just for me, but everyone out there," 16-year-old Cassidy Campbell said after
receiving her crown during the halftime of Marina High's homecoming football game Friday night in Huntington Beach, CA.
Rise of the Thought Police:
Bullying Your Children Into Forsaking Their Values. [Minnesota] House File 826, misleadingly titled the Safe and Supportive Schools Act, serves as a

into political reeducation camps which correct Orwellian Wrong Think.
Female student aiming to become homecoming
king. A Pennsylvania school board has agreed to review a request by a biologically female student who was denied the opportunity to appear on the ballot

California lawmaker pulls son from class over
transgender law. A Republican state lawmaker says a new California law allowing transgender students to choose which restroom and locker room they use is
part of the reason at least one of his sons will not return to his local public school this fall.
DOJ ripped for
making transgender restroom use new front in civil rights battle. The U.S. Department of Justice's latest cause — fighting
for a transgendered California ninth-grader's right to use the boy's room at school — has conservative groups wondering just how far
Washington will go in the name of civil rights. The student was born a girl but "has identified as a boy from a young age," according
to the Department of Justice, which reached a settlement with the public school district in Arcadia, an affluent LA suburb. Under the
deal, the district must not only change the student's restroom privileges and make similar accommodations on overnight trips.
It also must institute a host of measures to ensure transgender students are treated as whatever gender they consider themselves to be.
Calif. lawmakers pass K-12 transgender-rights
bill. California lawmakers approved a bill Wednesday [7/3/2013] that would require public K-12 schools to let transgender students choose which
restrooms they use and which school teams they join based on their gender identity instead of their chromosomes.
The Editor says...
Whenever schools allow the kids to make decisions about their rules, trouble is inevitable in the chort term, and chaos in the long run. The
same would be true if the inmates were allowed to make policy decisions in prisons. Where liberals rule, common sense does not.
is about to pass a law requiring bathroom, locker room access regardless of gender. Mere ownership of a penis or a vagina will no longer limit
California students in their decisions concerning which bathrooms and locker rooms to use, or which sports teams to join. Under a proposed law that has
passed the state legislature and now awaits the signature of Gov. Jerry Brown, students in California will be able to make such choices based on their
perceived gender identities, CNN reports. Assembly Bill 1266 aims to extend the rights of transgender students.
Shape-shifters are Changing America. Mostly
unbeknownst to most of us mortals, a modern day shape-shifter can become the opposite of the sex he or she was born as, transforming into a man or woman in
an instant. It doesn't matter if the biological assignment given at birth remains. Proclamation of one's sexual identity is enough. One's
gender can be established by fiat. Even children may change sex just by proclamation, as the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary School
guidelines affirm, stating that even if a child physiologically resembles a boy in every respect, but decides to be a girl, his new identity is to be
acknowledged as the "real" one. Just to be perfectly clear, lest anyone accuse the district of discrimination, it is not necessary to declare one's self
male or female at all. A student can essentially check the box "Neither."
Student wins free-speech lawsuit against
teacher. A Michigan teacher who kicked a student out of class after the teen made a comment against homosexuality during a high school anti-bullying
day was ordered to pay $1 for violating his free speech rights.
Professor Orders Students to Support Gay
Rights. A Tennessee community college professor ordered her students to wear ribbons support gay rights and said those who supported the traditional
definition of marriage are just "uneducated bigots" who "attack homosexuals with hate," according to a legal firm representing several of the students in the
class. Students in a general psychology class at Columbia State Community College were directed by their professor to wear "Rainbow Coalition" ribbons
for an entire day and express their support for the homosexual community, said Travis Barham, an attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom.
School Cancels Santorum Speech
over Marriage Views. A Michigan high school canceled a speech by former Sen. Rick Santorum after teachers became outraged over his
opposition to gay marriage and threatened to stage protests and a possible work stoppage. Santorum had been invited to deliver a upcoming
speech on leadership by the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Gross Pointe South High School. But the speech was canceled on Monday [4/8/2013]
after the school district's superintendent heard from angry teachers.
Students Who Refuse
to Affirm Transgender Classmates Face Punishment. Parents across Massachusetts are upset over new rules that would not only allow transgender
students to use their restrooms of their choice — but would also punish students who refuse to affirm or support their transgender classmates.
Last week the Massachusetts Department of Education issued directives for handling transgender students — including allowing them to use the bathrooms
of their choice or to play on sports teams that correspond to the gender with which they identify.
The Progressive Agenda.
[Scroll down] It's not about genitalia or chromosomes with liberals. It's all about feelings. Children may want to dress as a boy one day
or as a girl the next and they should be allowed to use the boys' room or the girls' room according to how they feel at the time.
If I boy thinks he's a girl, all the rest of the students and the staff in the school have to pretend he's a girl too. If they
should think that ridiculous, they would be told the problem was theirs, not the confused student's — and they would be required
to undergo brainwashing sensitivity training. That's where public schools are going these days all across the United States
School Wants to Oust Church Over
Anti-Gay Sermons. The head of Miami-Dade County Public Schools wants to evict a Southern Baptist church that rents space in one of their
buildings because of the congregation's opposition to homosexuality. Supt. Alberto Carvalho released a statement to a local television station
alleging that Impact Miami's opposition to homosexuality "appears to be contrary to school board policy as well as the basic principles of humanity."
Assignments Will Not be 'Limited by Traditional Gender Binary'. Dartmouth College is expanding its "gender neutral" housing
program, opening up more rooms where "students of any gender can cohabitate," the school newspaper, The Dartmouth, reported last week.
The Ivy League school's website says Dartmouth "seeks to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities; one not
limited by the traditional gender binary."
Anti-Bully Advocate Dan Savage
Bullies High School Kids With Profane Bible Rant. As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national
journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused
to listen to his rant "pansy a····." The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the "It Gets Better"
project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President
Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called "Savage Love."
Bender Day' leads to 'Social Justice Week'. Yesterday [4/24/2012], EAGnews.org reported on two events held
during "Social Justice Week" at Chicago Public Schools' Jones College Prep. One event featured a community organizer
who taught students how to protest, and engaged in inflammatory rhetoric gainst the National Rifle Association.
Conservative Groups Counter Pro-Homosexual "Day of Silence". A coalition of conservative, Christian,
and pro-family groups contend that the "Day of Silence" is little more than a tool of radical homosexuals to
engage teens in "gay" advocacy — and to recruit some of the more vulnerable ones into the destructive
lifestyle along the way. One of those groups, Mission America, encouraged parents to keep their kids home
from school on that day.
If your child's school allows 'Day of Silence' propaganda, keep your child at
home April 20. The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches.
This year it will take place in most public schools on April 20. On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers of middle
schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an entire day — even during instructional time — to promote GLSEN's socio-political
goals and its controversial, unproven, and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.
Judge rules school must allow access to sexually explicit
LGBT sites. A federal judge has ordered a Missouri school district to unblock its web filters and give
students access to sexually explicit material by the middle of March. A US District Judge issued a preliminary

Law Would Ban Homeschool Parents From Teaching Against Homosexuality. If you want to witness the eventual direction of
"diversity" in America, you may want to take a long look at what is happening in Canada. Under the new Education Act poised for
implementation in Alberta, Christian schools and homeschool parents would be prohibited, as part of their academic program, from
teaching children that homosexuality is sinful.
The Editor says...
Please note: This law does not pertain to the public school curriculum -- it restricts what parents can teach their children
in their own homes.
Bullies Student for Article Opposing Homosexuality. A Wisconsin school superintendent may be
rethinking how he dealt with a student who wrote a school newspaper article condemning homosexuality as sinful.
As part of an assignment for his journalism class, which is responsible for producing the school newspaper, 15-year-old
Shawano High School student Brandon Wegner contributed half of a pro-con editorial feature on adoption by homosexual
couples, using Scripture to buttress his case against same-sex couples adopting children.
history law on Calif. books, but not in texts. California's first-of-its-kind "gay history" law
went into effect Jan. 1, but so far, state educators don't appear to be on the same page. Given the
state's budget crunch, the state Department of Education has released no companion curriculum or textbook
revisions to comply with the FAIR Education Act, which requires schools to include the contributions of "lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender Americans" in instruction programs and curricula at all grade levels. The
law, which evolved from Senate Bill 48, also outlaws instruction materials "reflecting adversely" on those
individuals. The act also adds "persons with disabilities" to the list.
Parents 'Occupy' the Classroom. Some folks in this movement are protesting the left-wing socialist
propaganda that passes in our public school classrooms for history, social studies, economics and literature curricula.
Others are focused on protecting their children's innocence and instilling their moral and religious values by resisting the
so-called comprehensive sexuality agenda and its full-on mandate to normalize homosexuality and transgenderism, regardless
of the religious beliefs of public school students.
Wisconsin School Punishes Christian Kid for Being
a... Christian Kid. Superintendent Todd Carlson of Shawano High School in Shawano, Wisconsin, is sorry a student
observed his First Amendment rights and had his article published in the school newspaper that denounces homosexuals
adopting children. And so Superintendent Carlson is making amends by punishing this Christian kid for being
so ... Christian. Superintendent Carlson has also decided in his infinite wisdom to censure this article by
having it sent down the memory hole so that no one else will be confronted with this evil Christian's views.
"Sexual Brainwashing" Begins in California Schools. Students in California public schools may not be
leading the nation in their knowledge of the "three R's," but they are well on their way to being experts in
deviant lifestyles. Under a law signed last year by Gov. Jerry Brown (D), all public schools in the state
are now required to promote homosexuality, bisexuality, transsexuality, and same-sex "marriage" at every grade level,
including kindergarten — and to do so without parental consent or even notification.
History for California's Kids. California's efforts to be inclusive in the classroom could spell
disaster for education. A new law took effect January 1 requiring public schools to include the
contributions of gays, lesbians, and transgendered individuals in its history lessons. That alone is
proving unpopular with some. But the real issue is that the law also bans teaching material that reflects
"adversely" on gays or religions.
The Editor says...
To teach children right from wrong, it is necessary to be able to speak "adversely" about things that are evil
and wrong. To teach children that all religions are morally equivalent is false and misleading, and it is
pernicious and dangerous to teach them that perverse, deviant lifestyles are normal and natural. Wherever
the teachers are forbidden to speak the truth, the kids are wasting their time in the schools.
All they learn is how to stand in line and wait.
Great Golden State Business Exodus. California's in trouble. Businesses are leaving along with
intellectual and investment capital and skilled workers. But rather than face up to serious problems, legislators
pass silly laws. ... Beginning this year, the state requires schools to intervene if personnel see gay bullying.
Meanwhile, it makes schools teach the historical achievements of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals.
2012 ushers in new abortion, immigration,
indoctrination laws. Girls seeking abortions in New Hampshire must first tell their parents or a
judge, employers in Alabama must verify new workers' U.S. residency, and California students will be the first
in the country to receive mandatory pro-homosexual indoctrination under state laws set to take effect at the
start of 2012.
Grad Student Fighting Expulsion Over Christian View of Homosexuality. Faculty and administrators at
a Georgia university are attempting to derail the dream of one of its graduate students to become a school

Outraged Over Teacher Removing Word 'Gay' from 'Deck the Halls'. Christmas carols help us get in
the mood to celebrate the holidays. But would they have the same meaning if we changed a few words? Parents
of students at an elementary school in Michigan say, "No." A music teacher at Cherry Knoll Elementary School in
Traverse City decided to change the word "gay" to "bright" in "Deck the Halls" for the children's Christmas concert.
Her reasoning for the switch? First- and second-graders would not stop giggling when they sang the word "gay."
The Editor says...
This simply means that the children have not been properly instructed. The word gay is perfectly
legitimate, but it is a word that has been hijacked in recent years and now erroneously refers to homosexuals.
If homosexuals are mentioned in classrooms at all, they should be called homosexuals. (I don't recall
homosexuality being mentioned at all when I was in school.) The children should also be told to wipe those
smiles off their faces, because there is nothing funny or cute or heroic about homosexuals, transvestites, or
others who openly engage in perversion.
Not-So-Free Speech in
New Jersey. New Jersey high school teacher Viki Knox may have been inspired by Christie's comments
to think that it was okay for a New Jersey public employee to express an opinion about homosexuality, as if the
First Amendment is alive and well in New Jersey. Knox believes that homosexuality is a sin. She
posted her belief — not on an official school web site, but on her personal Facebook page.
The Union High School District is investigating Knox to determine if she violated school policies.

ACLU Bullying Schools Into Allowing Porn Access on
Computers? At different locales around the country, in places as diverse as Detroit, Mich.,
Lawrenceville, Ga., and Camdenton, Mo., the ACLU is sending letters and filing lawsuits seeking to disallow
government school usage of certain Internet filters. They claim their campaign is designed to end the
blocking of "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender" activist group sites, but in reality it will allow
school children to access to pornographic websites.
ACLU Wants to

students to pornography — in direct violation of federal law.

Our "Gay Pride"
President. [Scroll down] This is no doubt what Prof. Robert Weissberg (University of
Illinois-Urbana) had in mind in his warning to America: "Make no mistake, this is not just telling
youngsters to ignore 'odd' classmates, the traditional tolerance-based solution. Rather, this is a
drive to legitimize homosexuality, swathed in the rhetoric of tolerance, by portraying this sexual
predilection as 'normal' at a time when youngsters barely grasp sexuality of any variety. This quarrel
is hardly an academic one: confrontations are real, and, ironically as so often is the case, their
tumultuousness undermines the very social tranquility tolerance instruction is supposed to bring."
From Crayons to Condoms.
Under the guise of "tolerance" and reducing "hate crimes," students are often indoctrinated with the idea that
there is no difference between homosexuality and heterosexuality even though what is being taught may violate
the personal or religious beliefs of many of the students and their families. Homosexual, bi-sexual, and
transgendered panels are often brought in to discuss their lifestyles. However, heterosexuals are not
usually a part of any discussion.
brings queer studies to California grade schools. The latest addition to the California public
school curriculum will not help our children learn how to write a complete sentence, locate their home state
on a map or even run a mile. Instead, it aspires to sensitize students, as early as kindergarten, to the
travails of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Americans. The FAIR Education Act requires the
inclusion of the contributions of "sexual minorities" in California public school history lessons and textbooks.
As this new law suggests, homosexual rights advocates have convinced many Americans that they are large in number
but short on influence. The opposite is true.
Will Help Homosexual Activists Establish 'Safe Spaces' in Public Schools. A homosexual

across the country to help keep LBGT students safe and healthy.

They even have a Gay and Lesbian Caucus (GLC). They teach young people that opposition to such deviant
behavior is wrong and "homophobic." Much of what is taught in our schools and institutions of higher
learning is pure filth. But there is one thing that they will not allow, and that is the teaching of
traditional Judeo-Christian principles. Feminist and homosexual groups are welcomed on campus, but many
Christian groups have had to go to court to be allowed the equal right of having their groups. They are
the only ones who are not welcome.
Tennessee May Ban Teaching of Homosexuality in Elementary School.
Last week, the Senate Education Committee of the State Senate of Tennessee passed a bill that forbids public
school elementary and middle school teachers from "furnishing any materials on human sexuality other than

require the teaching of gay history and rights. Children would take lessons on issues affecting gays,
lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people, with schools granted discretion about what age to start the

traditional views of sex and marriage should be barred from state university counseling programs unless
they agree to violate their beliefs. That's the gist of theamicus brief the American Civil Liberties
Union (ACLU) filed Feb. 11 in a case in which a Christian student is challenging her dismissal from a
graduate counseling program at Eastern Michigan University in 2009.
says kids shouldn't be 'brainwashed' into thinking homosexuality is OK. GOP gubernatorial
candidate Carl Paladino yesterday went well beyond his opposition to same-sex marriage, telling a Brooklyn
Hasidic congregation that children should not be "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally
valid and successful option. It isn't." He told about 50 worshippers at the K'hal Adas
Kashau synagogue in Williamsburg that kids "would be much better off and much more successful getting
married and raising a family."
Carl Paladino Spoke the Truth.
For modern American liberals, there is no greater sin than to publicly express the view that there may be something
wrong with homosexual activity and that children should not be taught to consider homosexual behavior morally
equal to chastity and marriage. No prominent politician who questions the wholesomeness of same-sex sex
can escape a vicious beating by the liberal elite — because these beatings serve a strategic purpose.

The recent court rulings against students Jennifer Keeton in Georgia and Julea Ward in Michigan reveal the power

with GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) to sponsor a "Day of Silence" on April 16.
Cooperating schools will allow students and teachers who support the homosexual agenda to remain silent during
instructional time. The AFA [American Family Association] is joining many other pro-family organizations
around the country in calling for families to pull their students out of participating schools that day.
AFA president Tim Wildmon said, "No school should allow an organization like GLSEN to hijack classroom instructional
time for political purposes. This turns taxpayer-funded government schools into propaganda forums for
promoting homosexuality and cross-dressing. No right-thinking school officials should allow the
educational environment to be prostituted in this way.

Commission Moves to Ban Gender Specific Bathrooms, Sports Teams in Schools. The Maine Human

Push HR 4530, a Radical Safe Schools Czar's Dream Come True. On January 20, 2009 President
Barack Obama promised to "begin again the work of remaking America." He wasn't kidding. ... But you
haven't seen anything yet. The democrats in Congress are moving closer to passing the most radical
anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-family bill through Congress that we have seen in decades.
H.R.4530: Assault on Genuine Child
Safety and Morality. The purpose of this bill is not what is being stated, but is quite simply
to mandate in public schools one acceptable viewpoint on the issue of homosexuality, using purported violence
or harassment as the rationale, and the power of the feds as the hammer. The goal is to silence those
who may warn about or object to student expression of homosexuality or gender confusion. Such warnings
might literally save a child's life.
Kevin Jennings' twisted
terminology: Kevin Jennings is Safe School Czar not by some vetting breakdown. He was an official
in the Obama Campaign as its Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual fund-raising co-chair. For twenty years until 2008, Jennings
succeeded on a massive scale at pro-homosexual propagandizing of school children. His adeptness and
accomplishment at semantic deception are extraordinary.
Obama's Elementary Queering Must Be Stopped. Kevin Jennings is not just your normal activist
nominee. He is a firm advocate of mandated affirmation of approval of homosexual actions by school
children, and to this end, his involvement with the GLSEN's "Day of Silence" has moved them to go beyond that
to demand "Queer Proms" in the local public schools, and to lobby for legislation in each state to change the
definition of marriage to make it mean something it has never meant. With Jennings' support, the GLSEN
chapter in Connecticut has begun pushing not just for "tolerance" or "acceptance" of those who choose to engage
in homosexuality in the public schools, but they have actually created an "activity" for the school systems
which pushes "positive levels of attitude" such as mandated "admiration" and "nurturance."
say Obama's 'Safe Schools' Czar is the Wrong Man for the Job. [Kevin] Jennings was appointed to
the position largely because of his longtime record of working to end bullying and discrimination in schools.
In 1990, as a teacher in Massachusetts, he founded the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which
now has over 40 chapters at schools nationwide. He has also published six books on gay rights and
education, including one that describes his own experiences as a closeted gay student.
Fairy Tales Don't
Come True. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled recently that parents had no right to
know about a very graphic sex survey given out to elementary school students in California. In fact, the court said
that parents have no right to claim sole responsibility for their children's sex education. ... Schools often give
information without parental notice about multiple access points to enter such behavior through "gay" community groups,
homosexual school clubs, local health clinics, Internet chat rooms, and politically correct youth organizations and clubs.
Obama's Elementary Queering Must Be Stopped: Obama sought to distract with his own, "Once, Twice,
Three times a Muslim" act in Cairo, all the while praying that no one would notice that a protector of a child
sodomist was being given access to children in our public schools. Kevin Jennings is not just your normal
activist nominee. He is a firm advocate of mandated affirmation of approval of homosexual actions by
school children, and to this end, his involvement with the GLSEN's "Day of Silence" has moved them to go
beyond that to demand "Queer Proms" in the local public schools, and to lobby for legislation in each state to
change the definition of marriage to make it mean something it has never meant. With Jennings' support,

Gay Curriculum Proposal Riles Elementary School
Parents. A group of parents in a California school district say they are being bullied by school
administrators into accepting a new curriculum that addresses bullying, respect and acceptance — and
that includes compulsory lessons about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community that will be taught
to children as young as 5 years old.
ACLU demands schools allow access to gay
Websites. Students and parents are demanding Metro Nashville's public schools stop blocking access to
Web sites about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. They complained to the American Civil Liberties

College sued over speech against gay marriage. A college
student has filed a lawsuit saying a public speaking professor berated him in class for making a speech opposing same-sex
marriage. In the federal court suit filed last week, student Jonathan Lopez said that midway through his speech, when
he quoted a dictionary definition of marriage and recited a pair of Bible verses, professor John Matteson cut him off and
would not allow him to finish. He said Matteson also called him a "fascist bastard." A student evaluation form
included with the lawsuit lacks a score for Lopez's speech, and reads "ask God what your grade is."
Public Schools Change Young Evangelicals' Values.
Barack Obama's selection for secretary of education is his crony Arne Duncan, who most recently made news by recommending
the creation of a Chicago Social Justice High School-Pride Campus, where half the students would be homosexuals and the
other half straight. Somehow that school was canceled just about the time that Obama announced Duncan's appointment.
Chicago Schools Administrator:
Homosexual High School is "Necessary". A proposed homosexual-friendly Chicago public high school is
"necessary" for the well-being of students, a Chicago Public Schools administrator told CNSNews.com Wednesday
[12/10/2008]. Joyce Brown, who is in charge of the public school district's high school counselors, said
the "Social Justice High School — Pride Campus" is necessary because "the issue (of homosexuality) is out there."
Curricula Should Conform To Science. The press for tolerance education for homosexuality in classrooms is
driven by the desire to provide safe, learning-friendly environments for all students. The program of education is
based on the testimony of teachers that intimidation of children with same-sex attractions is rampant in schools, and
prejudice against gay people is strong enough to keep teachers from "coming out." However, a Philadelphia psychiatrist
told The Bulletin that many of the conceptions that drive the push for curricula that endorse a homosexual lifestyle have
no basis in scientific findings.
Toledo Sued For Firing Christian Official. The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm that
defends and promotes the religious freedom of Christians, filed a lawsuit yesterday [12/1/2008] against the University of

black official at the University of Toledo, was fired in May by the university because she wrote a newspaper commentary
expressing her personal Christian views regarding homosexuality.

School Clams Up on 'Gay' Pledge Cards Given to
Kindergartners. A California school system refuses to say what action, if any, it will take after
it received complaints about a kindergarten teacher who encouraged her students to sign "pledge cards" in support
of gays. During a celebration of National Ally Week, Tara Miller, a teacher at the Faith Ringgold School of
Arts and Science in Hayward, Calif., passed out cards produced by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network
to her class of kindergartners.
What same-sex "marriage" has
done to Massachusetts. At my own children's high school there was a school-wide assembly to
celebrate same-sex "marriage" in early December, 2003. It featured an array of speakers, including
teachers at the school who announced that they would be "marrying" their same-sex partners and starting
families either through adoption or artificial insemination. Literature on same-sex
marriage — how it is now a normal part of society — was handed out to the
students. Within months it was brought into the middle schools.

Blade Article Gets University Employee Fired. [Scroll down] You know, I have often wondered
why the civil rights establishment has allowed homosexual extremists to co-opt the mantle of civil rights for
their own twisted agenda. [Crystal] Dixon is exactly right. I can no more "decide" not to be white
as she can "decide" not to be black.
But, it is possible to decide not to be gay. It is something
eminently under the control of the individual to change. It is a behavior, not an unalterable fact.
Suspends Administrator for Op-Ed on Homosexuals. The University of Toledo has suspended with
pay one of its administrators for writing a newspaper op-ed that questions whether homosexuality is a civil

homosexuality do not comport with those of the university, a state institution.
'Day of silence' generates controversy. The silent
observation is meant to highlight the plight of gay students who feel they must hide their sexual orientation for fear of
harassment, bullying and discrimination, according to those who are taking part. Those opposed to the activity say it
is really a veiled movement to promote a homosexual lifestyle in public schools. A number of Oregon City High School
students and some teachers took part, writing their thoughts rather than speaking.
The school announced the day of

'Be Happy Not Gay' shirt gets OK.
A US federal court has granted permission for a teenager to wear a T-shirt with the slogan "Be Happy, Not Gay" during a Christian
day of action on Monday held in response to a gay rights protest. The high school in Neuqua Valley, Illinois, had banned
student Alexander Neuxoll from wearing the T-shirt in class on Monday, when a Christian group is organising a "Day of Truth" to
show its opposition to homosexuality.
High School Officials Assign Racist "Gay"
Porn. Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Illinois, had assigned the pornographic book "Angels in
America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes" to students as required reading. When a group of
outraged parents found out, they filed a formal complaint. Now the book has been changed to an "optional
title," meaning kids may still select the book for peer study under the direction of a teacher. The book
is replete with profanity, overt racism through multiple uses of the N-word, an explicit description of a sex
act involving Mother Theresa and some of the most graphic, vile and vivid depictions of homosexual anal
sodomy every put in print.
"Gay" Sex Kills? Can you imagine
officials at a middle school, junior high or high school setting aside a day to promote "tolerance" for heavy
smoking and drinking among children? How about a day where teachers encourage kids to "embrace who they
are," pick up that crack pipe and give it a stiff toke? Neither can I. The public would go
ballistic, and for good reason. But that hasn't stopped officials in thousands of schools across the
country from promoting other politically correct and socially "in-vogue" behaviors that — both
statistically and manifestly — are every bit as dangerous as the aforementioned frowned-upon
Oklahoma lawmaker threatened with legal action for

Representative Sally Kern said she was concerned that the homosexual agenda would destroy the nation and that the
threat the movement poses is as big a threat to the nation as terrorism. She also told how young public school
children are being indoctrinated into believing that the homosexual lifestyle is normal.

teach young children to accept and endorse homosexuality.
Opposed to Same-Sex Marriage — You Must be a Member of the Ku Klux Klan. Without question,
the comments comparing Justin [Boone] and his teammates to members of the KKK were rude, offensive, and

Say No to these Pro Homosexual Materials at School. Some tolerance lessons taught to our
kids — learning respect and civility toward people of all races and ethnic backgrounds — are
valuable. And certainly, we need to stop the cruelty involved in bullying. Unfortunately,
many of the lessons in our schools have been corrupted by adding to these positive messages the poisonous
myth that accepting homosexuality and "transgendered" behaviors is desirable, while objecting to
them — even in a civil way — is "harassment," "discrimination" and even "bullying."

Association, is underway to promote acceptance of homosexuality among children, and a great deal of headway
has already been made through the establishment of homosexual clubs, adoption of pro-homosexual school policies,
the showcasing of homosexual literature, special occasion speakers, and so-called anti-bias programs.

Certain school systems today actively teach youngsters the idea that we must embrace every concept that society popularizes, else we will be
