Code words homosexual school activists groups are using to circumvent parents.

Here is a sampling of some of the things the GLSEN toolkit encourages teachers to do:

  • Look for “teachable moments” to incorporate promotion of homosexuality into classroom activities. For instance, “Write math problems with contexts that include a variety of family structures and gender-expressions. For example, ‘Rosa and her dads were at the store and wanted to buy three boxes of pasta…’ ”

Note to parents: This example illustrates two key points: 1) It reveals the code words homosexual activists groups are using to circumvent parents. If your child’s school starts teaching programs about “different family structures,” “family diversity” or “gender expressions,” that’s definitely a red flag that you should start asking questions about what’s happening in the classroom. 2) It illustrates the Orwellian nature of these groups’ efforts. Their strategy is to incorporate subtle indoctrination into every subject area for kids as young as kindergarten—whether it’s through math problems or history lessons. This makes it more difficult for parents to stay on top of what their kids are being taught about sexuality.

Other things the toolkit encourages teachers to do include:

  • Eliminate terminology that acknowledges the differences between male and female or reflects an understanding that man-woman marriage and heterosexuality are the cultural norm. “A hetero-normative viewpoint is one that expresses heterosexuality as a given instead of being one of many possibilities. … The assumption (reinforced by imagery and practice) that a boy will grow up and marry a woman is based on such a viewpoint,” the toolkit tells teachers. This ignores the reality that, when given the opportunity to make their voices heard, the majority of voters have affirmed marriage as the union between a man and a woman.
  • It also instructs teachers to stop grouping children into boys’ and girls’ teams–and even to “monitor” children’s free time and recess activities to ensure they don’t voluntarily do this themselves.
  • Furthermore, the toolkit encourages teachers to “invite students,” as young as kindergarten, “to draw pictures of favorite … storybook characters and dress them in clothes that are different … from what they would typically wear.” Examples might include “Cinderella in a knight’s armor” or “Spiderman wearing a magic tiara.”
  • GLSEN also wants teachers to use storybooks that familiarize very young children with the idea of same-sex marriage or cross-dressing. Suggested books include Uncle Bobby’s Wedding, a book featuring two male guinea pigs who get married, and 10,000 Dresses, about a boy who wears dresses.

Gay columnist: let’s face it, we want to indoctrinate children.

While gay activists usually deny that they want to indoctrinate children, said Villarreal, “let’s face it—that’s a lie.” “We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it,” he wrote.

Villarreal pointed to the tactics of a gay activist group FCKH8, which fought a recent Tennessee bill prohibiting classroom discussion of homosexuality in grade school by “hir[ing]some little girls to drop F-bombs” in their controversial online ad campaign, and handing out gay paraphernalia to schoolchildren. “Recruiting children? You bet we are,” he said.

“Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?”

Writer takes a (scary) look back

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but things sure have changed here in the Northeast since the 1980s. For one thing, in those days, the brainwashing of American schoolchildren was scarcely underway, only a few decades old. Today, it is not only the kids, but the parents as well that are the products of liberal indoctrination. Hence, issues that should be, at best, open to intelligent discussion, are treated as done deals; like the absolute acceptance of ‘a wall between church and state’ and the ‘settled science’ of anthropogenic global warming. Indeed, the idea that man himself is but a necessary nuisance on the planet seems to be gaining in popularity. Even in some religious circles, you can’t shake the notion that love for the Earth and its four-legged creatures seems to outpace that for the Creator and those made in his image.

Political correctness, once the butt of comedians’ jokes, now rules the day in nearly all aspects of life. Its effect on education is only part of the damage. So permeated is our culture with an emphasis on feelings rather than fact, that now we even have laws safeguarding the tender sensibilities of self-identified victim groups. In the years since Reagan left us, incompetence in the workplace is protected by claims of gender, race and age discrimination, while single parent-hood and homosexuality have gone from moral maladies to federally funded and legally protected lifestyles to be taught to our children as worthy of imitation.
