Mass Resistance's Guide to How the Gay Lobby Works

This is a good run-down from our friends at MassResistance:

Remember that Massachusetts has among the most advanced and corrupted laws regarding homosexuality in the country, with 40% of adoptions being forcibly sent to gay homes, birth certificates issued that fraudulently claim two men or two women conceived children, and mandatory homosexual education aimed at children that would make your skin crawl.

The folks at MassResistance have seen the future and provide an excellent breakdown of what to expect as the Gay Lobby, quite predictably, will move on from their gay marriage wins and start pushing more and more child trafficking, prostitution, lowered age of consent, and normalized incest. If you think I'm being hysterical, you haven't been reading English Manif for long enough. Scroll through our archives and you'll see that this is pretty much the way the Gay Lobby rolls. It starts with the story of an innocent gay teenager killing himself because of bullying (later you find out he was being molested by a gay adult he met on the Internet), then you get the story about adorable lesbians raising a special-needs child they took in from a group home, and everyone starts crying, and then you get gay marriage passed. Then they start pushing "twincest," porn in front of children at Gay Pride, leniency for online gay escorts, and "mentorship" programs that create pederastic situations which then end up not being prosecuted, and a precedent sets in allowing more sex between old men and younger and younger boys. It's all happened already.

Here's some of MassResistance's diagnosis of the tactics:

Her major points of instruction (along with the other speeches that day) reflected what we've seen in recent years:
  • Use lots of emotion.
  • Paint a picture of this being a fight against injustice and discrimination, with lots of Civil Rights imagery.
  • Use emotional personal stories (well-coached if possible).
  • Avoid discussing the details of the bill what it would actually do (i.e., in schools, businesses, etc.), but if you do, speak in generalities.
  • Come across as courteous, rational, and well-meaning.
  • Portray it as the "good" side for civil rights and freedom, versus the unenlightened "bad" side (which helps victimize people and promotes discrimination).
  • Make sure that legislators who support you believe that they are enlightened, good, intelligent people.
  • Allow an undercurrent of strong emotional dislike (i.e., hate) towards those who don't agree.
What's never discussed is the actual goal of the transgender law: To force public acceptance of perverted cross-dressing and transgender behaviors in businesses, institutions, government, schools, and throughout society -- by imposing punishments for violators, including fines and even jail time.

The Snarky Gay Lobby Conspiracy Theorists and Their Atrocious Lack of Geography Skills


I received a call from a reporter [CAROLYN LOCHHEAD] at a national newspaper [SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE], which will remain nameless until I see if she actually uses anything from the interview with me, and if she quotes me honestly. This was a newspaper to which I've sent a few editorials and letters to the editor, which never saw the light of day. I have a file of 50 different such submissions to American newspapers, none of which ever got acknowledged or published.

La Joie de Vivre 2:12 -- Kids of Gay Parents Speak Out, Part 4 of 4


This installment of La Joie de Vivre is the last of a four-part series, bringing to a close a dialogue among three adults who were raised by gay parents in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s -- Bobby, Rivka, and Dawn. The topics they address in Parts One, Two, and Three now culminate in their expression of concern about abuse in gay parenting homes and what transgender cultures means for the future.



La Joie de Vivre 2:11 -- Kids of Gay Parents Speak Out, Part 3 of 4

To be officially published on April 6, 2014

In this edition of La Joie de Vivre, we move to Part Three of the four-part series; here the three adult children of gay parents -- Rivka, Bobby, and Dawn -- build on the topics they discussed in Parts One and Two. In this segment they talk about what it was like when they realized that their family lives were the source of political controversy, and particularly their reaction to the sudden popular attention to "same-sex parenting" after the publication of Heather Has Two Mommies in 1989.


La Joie de Vivre 2:10 -- Kids of Gay Couples Speak Out, Part 2 of 4


In this edition of La Joie de Vivre, we continue where Part One of our four-part series left off.

In part one, Dawn, Rivka, and Bobby spoke about whether they felt their experiences were reflected in the highly public research into same-sex parenting. They also delved into the ways that they coped with the absence of a stable parent of the "missing" sex in the home.

In this, the second part, they tackle some of  the questions about the impact of their upbringing on their later sexual choices and point of view.

La Joie de Vivre 2:9 -- Kids of Gay Parents Reflect on Same-Sex Parenting, Part 1 of 4



This installment of La Joie de Vivre is Part 1 of a four-part series. In December 2013, three of the most outspoken adults raised by gay parents -- Rivka Edelman, Robert Oscar "Bobby" Lopez, and Dawn Stefanowicz -- conferred for an hour to talk about same-sex parenting. The recording of their voices will be uploaded with graphics as episodes of Rue des Sages, but for now, English Manif is posting the written transcripts of their conversation for people to peruse.

There are some distinctions among Rivka, Bobby, and Dawn that are important to note at the outset. All three grew up with gay parents in the 1970s. Dawn and Rivka, now in their fifties, experienced some of same-sex parenting in the 1960s, while Bobby, in his early forties, experienced same-sex parenting in the 1980s. All three were raised by gay parents in a time when same-sex parenting was not a political phenomenon, and when the gay community was not particularly interested in the experiences of children raised by gay parents. 

Rivka, Bobby, and Dawn are also more educated than the average child of a same-sex couple. Rivka and Bobby both have doctorates in English from highly ranked universities; they are also both professors. Dawn completed her studies in Canada and received her license as an accountant. Since Dawn published Out from Under in 2007, she has been flown around the world, testifying in places like Paraguay; her writing has been translated into languages ranging from Chinese to Portuguese. Likewise, Rivka and Bobby are both published authors.

Rivka at the Well
 The education of these three individuals could be read one of two ways. Perhaps they are atypical of children raised by gay parents. In the Doug Allen study published in 2013, based on 20% of the Canadian census, children raised by same-sex couples had markedly low academic achievement, graduating high school at only 65% the rate of children raised by a mother and father. The only exception to Allen's finding, however, was that boys raised by gay dads fared exceptionally well, finishing high school at a much higher rate than children raised by a mother and father. 

Dawn was raised by a gay father, while Bobby and Rivka were raised by lesbians. Therefore their conversation does not include the fourth category -- a male raised by gay men -- yet the three of them have above-average educational attainment. 

What follows is the unedited words of their three-way discussion.

Each of the four parts of this series represents fifteen minutes of discussion.
