Alfred Kinsey’s belief in child sexuality, with all of its impacts on children and society, now circles the globe, but a campaign to reveal the truth about his efforts to legitimize pedophilia is following right behind.
Judith Reisman, a visiting professor of law at Liberty University, popular lecturer and former consultant to four U.S. Department of Justice administrations, recently concluded a trip in which she delivered seminars on the fallacies of Kinsey’s arguments in Rome, Ireland and London.
One of her books exposing the agenda of Kinsey’s lifelong campaign recently has been translated into Chinese.
“The Kinsey Institute is very active in the sexology field, holding conferences in every major nation in the world. They’ve been training the sexologists, sex educators in every country,” Reisman told WND.
“There’s not a single country that educates the public about sex where the institutional position, [the teachers], have not been trained in the Kinsey model,” she said.
His research results came not from a scientific cross-section of American, but from “hundreds of sex offenders, prostitutes, prison inmates and exhibitionists,” she documents. Kinsey, Reisman explained, used these people to represent the sexual activities and behaviors of the “Greatest Generation.”
The”K Bomb,” as she calls it — the “studies,” claims and “research” launched from the institute’s headquarters behind the gothic limestone Indiana University façade — have been used to “subvert” the nation’s traditional morality.
The impact has been seen worldwide.
“People in other countries are contacting me, asking me to please come and deliver the truth,” she told WND.
Kinsey’s extreme view of sexuality is typified by a statement posted on the website of the North American Man-Boy Love Association, which advocates sex between adults and children.
The statement, from Kinsey’s book “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female,” defends adult-child sex and accuses those who object to it of being responsible for “serious effects” suffered by children.
“When children are constantly warned by parents and teachers against contacts with adults, and when they receive no explanation of the exact nature of the contacts, they are ready to become hysterical as soon as any older person approaches, or stops and speaks to them in the street, or fondles them, or proposes to do something for them, even though the adult may have had no sexual objective in mind. Some of the more experienced students of juvenile problems have come to believe that the emotional reactions of the parents, police officers, and other adults who discover that the child has had such a contact, may disturb the child more seriously than the sexual contacts themselves. The current hysteria over sex offenders may very well have serious effects on the ability of many of these children to work out sexual adjustments some years later.”

The acceptance of Kinsey’s research of rapists, pedophiles and others has helped foster widespread sexual experimentation and an anything-goes atmosphere.
It has resulted in a “gutting” of the nation’s tough laws that previously had kept pornography and predators at bay, she explains.
Reisman says that although Kinsey’s beliefs are taught at every level of education – from elementary school to college – and quoted in textbooks as undisputed truth, his research was “grotesquely fraudulent.”
Among her charges is that Kinsey’s data came from sources who would stimulate young children, as young as two months, “orally and manually for up to 24 hours at a time.”
Reisman has lectured at Princeton, Notre Dame, Georgetown, Pepperdine, Johns Hopkins, the FBI, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the University of Jerusalem, University of Haifa and Tel Aviv University. She has been cited by the London Times, Time, Newsweek, the New York Times and the Washington Post. She has appeared on “Entertainment Tonight,” “Larry King Live,” “Donahue,” the”Today” show and “Crossfire.”
She’s been listed in “The World’s Who’s Who of Women.”
On her recent trip to Rome, she presented her research to the Alliance of the Holy Family International, including Cardinal Raymond Burke, Cardinal Ricardo Vidal and other leaders of the organization.
A Vatican organizer of the events called Reisman’s work critical to the ministry of the Catholic Church.
Reisman also delivered presentations in Ireland, where she trained nurses and doctors about the true methodology of Kinsey.
“The most fascinating information [developed], for me, during the discussions, when it slowly emerged that abortion, allegedly illegal, was being carried out, apparently selectively, among the Philippine population. The number of allegedly ‘dead’ babies identified by … doctors actually shocked these nurses,” she reported.
“When I left, the Philippine attendees were planning to begin investigating whether indeed they were being targeted for selective abortions and, if so, when this process began.”
In London, her focus was on creating safe schools, and she reported how sex “education” often is used for sex “indoctrination.”
“Following the meeting, Jonathan Evans, MP for Cardiff North, and Andrea Leadsom, MP for South Northamptonshire, joined parents in delivering to the department of education a 47,000-signature petition … calling for sex DVDs to be banned from U.K. primary schools.”
Reisman further told WND that following the translation of Kinsey’s work into Chinese, some 500,000 copies of his advocacy for pedophilia have been sold.
As a result, two credentialed Chinese professors translated her book “Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences’ into Chinese, she said.
Meanwhile, her work in the U.S. continues. Last year she was at a symposium for “minor-attracted people” that was sponsored by the group B4U-ACT, which disseminated “accurate information” to argue that pedophilia is just another sexual orientation.
“If a foreign country came in and did this to our nation, the nation would be outraged,” Reisman told WND about the B4U-Act event, also attended by J. Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action.
The speakers urged the removal of pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association’s list of mental defects in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Reisman explained the same strategy was used by homosexual activists in the 1970s when same-sex attractions were removed from the APA’s list of disorders. Eventually, the legalization of “gay marriage,” the mandatory homosexuality lessons in public schools and the brand new policy of allowing open homosexuality in the U.S. military resulted.
The recent event wasn’t a meeting of minor unknowns.
“Dr. John Sadler (University of Texas) argued that diagnostic criteria for mental disorders should not be based on concepts of vice since such concepts are subject to shifting social attitudes and doing so diverts mental-health professions from their role as healers,” the B4U-ACT organization said in a report about its symposium in Baltimore.
Another celebrity was Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins who argued in favor of “acceptance of and compassion for people who are attracted to minors,” the report continued.
The report pointedly referred to “minor-attracted people” in reference to pedophiles and explained that the concerns can be resolved with “accurate information.” Richard Kramer, who represented B4U-ACT at the event, contended listing pedophilia as a disorder stigmatizes the “victims” of the lifestyle choice.
According to Barber, conference speakers said the APA’s Diagnostic Manual should “focus on the needs” of the pedophile and should have “a minimal focus on social control” rather than on the “need to protect children.”
Barber, an ardent advocate for Judeo-Christian values and the traditional family, told WND the symposium was “the North American Man-Boy Love Association all dolled up and dressed in the credible language of the elitist Ph.Ds.”
“This is a bunch of morally relative, highly educated people in the mental health community who are trying to achieve the ultimate in tolerance,” Barber said. “These are the people who are the disciples of Alfred Kinsey.”
Further, a campaign last year was launched in the U.K. to allow convicted pedophiles to adopt children, since depriving them of that privilege could “breach their human rights.”
“There is no reason why all sex offenders should not be considered as potentially suitable to adopt or foster children, or work with them,” said an advocate.
Reisman also cited the decision last week by Greece to expand a list of disability categories approved by the government to include pedophiles and exhibitionists.
The Greek government said the list also includes pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists and sadomasochists.
WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, shortly after publication of “The Marketing of Evil” in 2005, predicted publicly that the next “liberation movement” to assault America would be “the mainstreaming of adult-child sex.”
Now he has noted, “The same godless logic that leads to normalization of homosexual marriage will lead also to the de-stigmatization and decriminalization of pedophilia. Remember, consensuality has replaced morality in today’s legal system, so a young person ‘consent’ to have sex will ultimately trump the old-fashioned desire to protect the innocent. Also, since adult-child sex is a ‘cultural preference’ in certain non-Western countries, child-molestation lobbyists are now making the argument that criminalizing adult-child sex amounts to condemning another culture. So that’s where multiculturalism has brought us.”
Pedophilia Is No Longer A Crime - We appear to be in the final stages of Pedophilia becoming a socially acceptable pastime. Who is watching and judging the judges?
According to this similar article, I think it is removing the doors on the stalls? Restrooms with no doors on the stalls are a common occurrence in public schools across the country.
We are in big trouble people… Big trouble! Everything good, decent, traditional, beautiful, is under attack – The greatest nation in the world for the common man, the values of Christianity and Judaism, decency, honor, are all but gone! Being replaced by depravity!
Breaking: Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Is Promoting Child Porn in the Classroom– Kevin Jennings and the GLSEN Reading List
Scott Baker from Breitbart-TV.com and Co-Host of ‘The B-Cast‘ submitted this shocking report today on Obama’s deviant Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings. – Thanks Gateway Pundit, Breitbart-TV and The B-Cast!! (On behalf of: AsAMom’s Group and all decent Americans!!)
This is not an attack on gay people. It is an attack on sexualizing young children and teaching them things they need not and should not know, whether they are ultimately heterosexual or homosexual. It is also a fight for parental rights, religious teachings and moral standards.
—-Warning on Content—–
I was recently approached by a team of independent researchers that I have known for some time and have come to trust. They prepared this report involving ‘Safe Schools Czar’ Kevin Jennings and the organization he founded, GLSEN, and asked that I find a way to help draw attention to what they uncovered. Knowing that Gateway Pundit has followed Kevin Jennings since his appointment, as we have on The B-Cast (here, here, and here), and on Breitbart.tv (here, here, here, here,here, here, here, here and here), I felt this would be an appropriate place for this report.
Warning: The following material is very explicit.
Ask Marion/As a Mom – originally posted in December 2009
Co-Host, The B-Cast
Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of an organization called the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN started essentially as Jennings’ personal project and grew to become the culmination of his life’s work. And he was chosen by President Obama to be the nation’s Safe Schools Czar primarily because he had founded and led GLSEN (scroll for bio).
GLSEN’s stated mission is to empower gay youth in the schools and to stop harassment by other students. It encourages the formation of Gay Student Alliances and condemns the use of hateful words. GLSEN also strives to influence the educational curriculum to include materials which the group believes will increase tolerance of gay students and decrease bullying. To that end, GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books that it claims “furthers our mission to ensure safe schools for all students.” In other words, these are the books that GLSEN’s directors think all kids should be reading: gay kids should read them to raise their self-esteem, and straight kids should read them in order to become more aware and tolerant and stop bullying gay kids. Through GLSEN’s online ordering system, called “GLSEN BookLink,” featured prominently on their Web site, teachers can buy the books to use as required classroom assignments, or students can buy them to read on their own.
According to GLSEN’s own press releases from the period during which its recommended reading list was developed, the organization’s three areas of focus were creating “educational resources, public policy agenda, [and] student organizing programs”; in other words, the reading list (chief among its “educational resources”) was of prime importance in GLSEN’s efforts to influence the American educational system.
The list is divided into three main categories: books recommended for grades K-6; books recommended for grades 7-12; and books for teachers. (The books on the list span all genres: fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, even poetry.)
Out of curiosity to see exactly what kind of books Kevin Jennings and his organization think American students should be reading in school, our team chose a handful at random from the over 100 titles on GLSEN’s grades 7-12 list, and began reading through.
What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.
We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.
We knew that unless we carefully documented what we were reading, the public would have a hard time accepting it. Mere descriptions on our part could not convey the emotional gut reaction one gets when seeing what Kevin Jennings wants kids to read as school assignments. So we began scanning pages from each of the books, and then made exact transcriptions of the relevant passages on each page.
Are we exaggerating, or misconstruing quotes that could be interpreted a different way? No: Read the passages below and judge for yourself. There’s no wiggle room. The language is explicit, the intent clear.
To be specific, the books we read were:
We can only vouch for what’s in these 11 books, since these are the only ones we’ve read through. Are there other books on the GLSEN reading list that are similarly outrageous? We can’t say for sure, but it seems very likely. What you see excerpted below is probably only the tip of the iceberg.
Let it be clear: This issue has nothing to do with gayness or straightness, which is irrelevant to this report. The point proven here is that the GLSEN reading list promotes the sexualization of children in general, regardless of the “orientation.”
And this is not about censorship: It’s about deciding what constitutes appropriate reading material for children. We’re perfectly OK with these books existing and being read by adults; we only start to worry when these books are assigned to children. All sorts of books are excluded from school reading lists, for all sorts of reasons. Even many books once considered classics are now considered off-limits due to language or attitudes now deemed inappropriate. And yet, according to Kevin Jennings and GLSEN, books about a 13-year-old getting “my cock sucked and my ass fucked” or about a teenager enjoying the “exquisite bitter taste” of his friend’s semen are not just acceptable, they’re highly recommended. As GLSEN’s own site says, “All BookLink items are reviewed by GLSEN staff for quality and appropriateness of content.” Really? (Note: GLSEN does advise adults to “review content for suitability.”)
Although GLSEN does not address how books get added to its list, it’s hard to imagine that they are chosen by low-level staffers or volunteers, with no oversight. Since the list of recommended books is one of the organization’s primary tools (”The GLSEN BookLink, an online library of recommended resources, along with the Safe Space program remain cornerstones of GLSEN’s education work.”source), it’s likely that the books were chosen carefully. Kevin Jennings stepped down as Executive Director last year after leading GLSEN since its inception, but every single book mentioned in this report was added to the list while Jennings was in charge (dates are given for each title’s addition to the list). Therefore, it’s reasonable to believe he was aware of the addition of these works – especially since most were added when GLSEN was still quite small and the Executive Director had a hands-on role in daily operations.
Below you will find dozens of excerpts taken from books on the GLSEN “Booklink” recommended reading list for grades 7-12 (i.e. for children between the ages of 12 and 17). To prove that these books are indeed recommended by GLSEN for children, click on each book’s title to see its individual listing on the GLSEN Web site. And to prove that each excerpt is transcribed exactly as it appears in each book, click on the page numbers or the small images along the left to see scans taken directly of the book pages in question. (Ellipses ["..."] indicate unrelated passages not included in some of the transcriptions; click on the full-page scans to see the complete extended quotes.) Each passage is preceded by a brief summary, given in italics.
You decide for yourself if you think these are appropriate for kids as young as 12 years old to read. And then decide if you think the man who headed the organization responsible for recommending these books to children should be in charge of school safety in this country.
Keep in mind that, although the material below has been deemed by Kevin Jennings and GLSEN to be appropriate for children, some of the excerpts contain explicit language and pornographic descriptions, so if you don’t want to see such things, stop reading now.
(At the age of six, the author frequently performed fellatio on his fellow first-graders in the school restroom, part of a “busy homosexual childhood.”)
My sexual exploits with my neighborhood playmates continued. I lived a busy homosexual childhood, somehow managing to avoid venereal disease through all my toddler years. By first grade I was sexually active with many friends. In fact, a small group of us regularly met in the grammar school lavatory to perform fellatio on one another. A typical week’s schedule would be Aaron and Michael on Monday during lunch; Michael and Johnny on Tuesday after school; Fred and Timmy at noon Wednesday; Aaron and Timmy after school on Thursday. None of us ever got caught, but we never worried about it anyway. We all understood that what we were doing was not to be discussed freely with adults but we viewed it as a fun sort of confidential activity. None of us had any guilty feelings about it; we figured everyone did it. Why shouldn’t they?
(A man masturbates and explicitly ejaculates as he sits on a hill overlooking his hometown.)
I sit down on the hard ground and cry a little. I fish my aged cock out of my jeans as though I can mark the scene with pleasure so later I can find it and reread it for understanding. Once imagined, it is my responsibility to jack off in front of it all. The air feels funny on my cock, which usually squirms like a larva in the darkness; it’s more sensitive than I am to the prickle of a slight breeze. There is nothing to arouse me except myself. My tract looks so boring, its emptiness so lacks potential, that I can almost believe in reality, since here is appearance spreading out at my feet. It only takes a minute. My crotch rings like an alarm clock, some pump mechanism kicks in, and after short flights my sperm falls on the gray dirt. I feet edgy and shallow, emptied out by the day ahead, and twinges of residual pleasure make me twitch.

(A 13-year-old boy has a violent sexual encounter with an older man, which causes the boy to become desperate for sex, and he ends up spending the rest of the year promiscuously getting “my cock sucked and my ass fucked” by “a seemingly endless supply of dicks” belonging to older men, concluding with “I really did enjoy those sexual encounters.”)
One day, on the bus to shop class, this ugly fuck of a man sat behind me and put his foot in the crack of my seat. He was skinny, with a patchy, pencil-thin mustache that besotted his oily face. I ignored him for most of the trip. I did notice that he changed buses when I did, but this time he sat beside me. He tried a little small talk, but then he suddenly and very nervously put his hand on my crotch. It never occurred to me to tell him not to. I’m not sure if I agreed to it or not, but he managed to get me to follow him to a nearby rest room at another secondary school “to play.” In the bathroom stall, lit by two scant rows of fluorescent lights, half of them burnt-out or flickering, he tried to kiss me, but I was too nauseated to do that. He sucked my nipples and played with my cock. I had no idea what to do. He then tried to get me to suck his. Somehow I knew this was expected of me, but I just could not put his ugly, foul-smelling penis into my mouth. When he forced it in I gagged so hard I started vomiting. Undaunted, he tried to put his cock in my ass. Thankfully, he came prematurely. He pulled up his trousers and left me in the toilet stall confused, frightened, crying, and praying to God for forgiveness of my horrible sin. I spent a good deal of time locked in the stall, trying to clean up, trying to wipe the smell of that act off with wet toilet paper, but I was doused in the stench of that man and what he had done.
This incident should have soured me on men, but it only made me more confused and needful. One day later, something accidental happened that would change my life. I discovered that at a urinal I could actually see someone else’s penis. I was ecstatic and fearful, but I wanted more. One day, at a local shopping mall, as I was trying to sneak a peek at penises in the rest rooms, a man at the urinal actually turned to me and started playing with himself. He flashed me a gold-toothed smirk and motioned for me to come over. Shocked, I zippered up and ran out, but the seeds had been laid. The whole world of rest-room sex had opened itself up to me.
Soon I was spending a great deal of time hanging out in shopping malls and cruising the rest rooms for sexual encounters. My rest-room exploits started to be a great burden on my mind. The better part of the year was spent making deals with God, asking for a sign, then ignoring and rationalizing everything I perceived to be a sign, praying for forgiveness, and being obsessed with raging hormones and a seemingly endless supply of dicks. I believed that it was all part of a test by God to see if I was a sinner. I was.
I had known before that something was up, and that I was attracted to men, but this toilet thing was a whole new realm of sin and Satan, a new level that I had never before imagined. The following years were spent praying for forgiveness and trying to purge my homosexuality through prayer and Bible study. While my classmates wondered what sex was like, content to masturbate over pinups, I was out there having my cock sucked and my ass fucked. These were grown men I was tricking with. Some were nice, grateful for a young boy to have their way with. Some were harsh and mean. There were a few nasty encounters, brutal and painful experiences, near-rapes, but through it all, I never thought that I had the ability to say no.
I was scared about what I was doing, scared of God’s judgment and of being caught in all those rest rooms and parks, but I really did enjoy those sexual encounters. That feeling of doing it to them and them doing the same for me was just too damn good.
(The author vividly describes masturbating and ejaculating whenever and wherever possible, at the age of 13.)
Jacking off into the toilet, into the slit between pushed-together beds, into paper-towel tubes (Ugh, my little sister shouts, what’s this stuff?), in the shower, while standing in the crotch of a tree, while standing on my head. What belongs to me except the next orgasm? Even shame is not mine. I can’t afford to fantasize or to connect mind and body. Strip poker with Mike Cogan: Since we’re naked, we might as well masturbate. Don’t look, he keeps whining. His orgasm is like him, a pipsqueak.
(A writer is unhappy that she was forced to stop masturbating in public when she turned nine years old.)
I learned the truth about Santa Claus and masturbation in the same year. I was 9. I had a hunch about Santa, but I had no clue about masturbation. I mean, I had no clue there was anything wrong with it. As far as I know, I’ve been masturbating my whole life. But it wasn’t until 9 that I realized it was an impulse that you had to turn off. Especially in class. Fourth grade craft time taught me shame.
(An interview with a “sex worker” who praises prostitution as a way to raise one’s self-esteem and have empowering sexual experiences.)
Minal is a young queer from India and has been a sex worker in the S/M scene for a year and a half. He has taken a break from sex work and lives in San Francisco. In this interview Minal talks about his journey into sex work as a way of uplifting his self-esteem around body-image issues, his feeling of empowerment doing sex work in drag…
S: How did you get into sex work?
M: Well, before I get into that I have to tell you how I got into S/M generally, since I used to be a complete vanilla bottom. I’m gay, by the way; I’m exploring being transgendered, and I’ve been doing drag for about ten years, on and off. Drag was never a sexual thing for me, I’ve always had sex “as a guy.” Around March of last year a friend asked me about rape fantasies—she wanted to know what my fantasies were. I realized I hadn’t been fantasizing at all. When I did start thinking about it, my fantasies were all about whipping. I started reading up on S/M, and it was making me interested in sex for the first time. Before, I never knew what the big deal was with sex. I put a personal ad in the paper to do scenes with different people, and I realized that for what I was doing, I could be getting good money. I had a lot of friends in the sex industry who were asking me, “Why aren’t you charging for what you’re doing?”
So that summer I did it for free and learned what I needed to do, and by November I started putting out ads in the Bay Area Reporter. My ads were sort of genderfuck: my picture was taken from the neck down in a corset, fishnets and garter belt. It was a dom-type look. I realized there weren’t that many guys into doing S/M professionally, and the ones that were were really butch—so I stood out a lot. It was great. It was the first time I had really good sex, I was getting paid for it, and I felt totally in control. It was good, but I was wondering how many people I was losing by advertising as a fem dom. I started putting ads online without the fem look and got a lot more response, so I switched to just having a nude picture in the paper as opposed to a girlish one. The responses were more than I could handle, which is a good thing. That’s how I got into sex work, as a way of exploring my sexuality.
S: How has your self-image improved from doing sex work?
M: I feel a lot more confident and secure with myself. I think that has a lot to do with S/M and coming into my own power.
(The author describes how a sudden and impulsive sexual encounter was the healthiest relationship he’s ever had, then regrets the incestuous relationship he had with his cousin.)
But I know in the immediate future I want a very healthy relationship, because I’ve never really had a healthy relationship. The closest I’ve had was with a guy that I met at the lake when we lived in Davenport. I just met him at the lake, and he already had a boyfriend and stuff. I just walked up to him and said, “Do you want to fuck?” and we did. For a week. And then I went home because I couldn’t handle it anymore. The relationship I had with my cousin was very, very twisted, and I didn’t like hiding it. I mean, he was my cousin, and so it feels rather disgusting. But I think that you’re gonna fall in love with whomever you’re gonna fall in love with.
(A 15-year-old boy embarks on an intense sexual relationship with a much older adult man.)
Near the end of summer, just before starting his sophomore year in high school, Dan picked up a weekly Twin Cities newspaper. Scanning the classifieds, he came upon an ad for a “Man-2-Man” massage. Home alone one day, he called the telephone number listed in the ad and set up an appointment to meet a man named Tom. Tom offered to drive to Zimmerman. So, over the phone, Dan directed him to a secluded road in his subdivision. “Stop where the pavement ends,” Dan told him.
A couple of nights later, Dan pulled the broken screen from his bedroom window and slipped out of the house while his parents slept. He hurried to the prearranged rendezvous spot, and there, in the dark of night, he met Tom for the first time, man-to-man. In the back of Tom’s van, the two had sex.
“He gave me a little shoulder rub and the next thing I knew his hands were all over me,” Dan remembers. “It wasn’t a bad thing. I didn’t necessarily know it would turn into sex. But I knew what I was doing.”
Dan continued his liaisons with Tom throughout the summer and into the following school year, having sex—usually masturbation and oral sex—with Tom in his van or his Minneapolis apartment.
Even though Tom was older, almost twice Dan’s age, Dan felt unthreatened by him. Dan admits Tom was a “troll” in every sense of the word—an older closeted gay man seeking sex with a man much younger. But Dan says he was not intimidated by the discrepancy in their ages. “He kind of had me in a corner in that he knew I didn’t have access to anything I wanted.” says Dan. “But everything was consensual.”
“He wasn’t exactly a friend,” Dan says of his relationship with Tom. “He wasn’t exactly a lover. He wasn’t exactly a role model. He wasn’t exactly anything. What I got out of it was sex, and someone who made me feel nice for once. Sex was a totally different way to feel good. It was a very easy way to get away from the pain. I was young. He brought me down to the city, where I wanted to be. And I was very young.”
(A poem in which the author fantasizes about amputating his penis in order to become a woman.)
as a little boy growing up, i used ta sit in the bathtub, take the little spikey thing u put soap on, n lay on it, press my little pre-pubescent dick on it hard, impale myself, sometimes until i bled.
then i’d take it, bloodied n bruised, n tuck it between my legs, standing in front of the mirror, pushing the fat that wuz my chest together, seeing what it would b like ta have cleavage, thinking
perhaps i could escape my fate by becoming a woman, i wondered what it’d b like ta have a pussy, what it would b like ta cut it off, ta simply not have it around no more.
(Two twelve-year-old boys turn up the volume on a Christian song to drown out the noises of them having sex.)
I began sleeping over at Bob’s house again during seventh grade. His mother thought we enjoyed a perfectly platonic relationship in his room upstairs playing games and listening to Jim Nabors records – the only ones she allowed Bob to hear.
Little did she know that every night I slept over we would turn the record player loud and have sex to the beat of “Lord, You Gave Me a Mountain.”
(The narrator describes how at the age of 16 he began having sex with a 25-year-old man he met at a gay youth group.)
I don’t remember exactly when I started coming out, but I joined this youth group called Positive Images; it’s the Sonoma County gay/lesbian/bisexual youth group. I got a boyfriend instantly; he picked me up right away, right when I joined the group. He was older; he was twenty-five, I was sixteen. He was just really supportive of me. I went with him to this gay prom in Sonoma County called the Rainbow Prom in the middle of May.
So there was one night when I stayed at my boyfriend’s house. I lost my virginity to him a couple weeks before that, and so I stayed at his house, and I was feeling good when I went home the next day. It was the first time that I actually spent the night there and stayed the whole night. So I went home and I was in a great mood.
(A woman recalls how as a teenager she had a sexual affair with an adult teacher at her high school, which greatly boosted the girl’s self-esteem.)
While still in high school, she had an affair with a teacher. “She was forty-four and had a daughter who was a year younger than me, who went to my school. Needless to say, it was all very confusing, but exciting as well. The moment right after we kissed for the first time, I ran to the mirror and looked at myself. I was ecstatic. I thought I would look different. I said in a barely audible whisper, ‘I’m a lesbian.’ About six months later, we stopped being physically sexual, at my request. I was racked with guilt feelings and knew that it was out of control. I was terrified of someone finding out….”
(A gay priest recalls a life-changing incident at the age of ten, when he “felt my penis begin to harden” after meeting a new friend, after which the author “touched the flesh of his cock.”)
One summer when I was about ten, my mother and I spent several weeks at a big resort hotel in the Adirondack Mountains in northern New York State. …
Strange how all foreboding vanished when I first caught sight of Jamie checking into the hotel with his mother and father. The desire I felt for him was sudden and electric. …
As we changed in the dressing room by the swimming pool, I glanced very quickly to find out what his genitals looked like, but his back was turned to me as he slipped on his trunks. Still I knew I’d find out, somehow. …
I remember the fright I felt when there was no more to take off but my underpants, the strange sense of relief when I stood naked by the shadowed pool, the throat-tightening excitement of seeing Jamie’s slight lithe body, as naked as mine.
We tucked our clothes under the embankment. Then, with a whoop, Jamie dived into the pool. I stood on the pool’s edge, watched Jamie’s body squirming beneath the water’s surface, and felt my penis begin to harden.
Jamie broke the surface with a splash and looked at me. A quick grin crossed his face. “Dive in! It’s great!”
I glanced down and saw that my cock was fully erected.
“C’mon, we’ll wrestle. that’ll warm you up.” He grabbed me around the neck and pushed me back on the sand. The warmth of his body sent chills through mine. I struggled (although not very convincingly, I’m afraid) against his grip and we rolled on the sand and I finally pinioned him on his back, astride him, my hands holding his arms.
He looked up at me. “Uncle,” he whispered.
I released his arms. They glided around my neck, pulling my head down to his. I stretched full length on top of him, our heads touching. Our heavy breathing from the struggle gradually subsided. I felt my penis grow hard against his body, and, pressed against mine, I felt his grow hard too. I raised my head and looked at his face. He was looking at me. After a long moment I lowered my head till our lips touched. And held.
Then I moved over on my side next to him, and my hand reached down, slowly, until I touched the flesh of his cock. It stiffened still more and Jamie’s hips stirred. I felt a wonder. I had caused this to happen to someone else. Someone else felt as I did. I wasn’t alone. There was Jamie. And now we had our secret.
We shared the wonder of that secret, touching, exploring, responding, till we heard voices—adult voices—calling our names.
(The author recalls with mixed emotions the sexual relationship he had with his cousin starting at the age of 12.)
Despite my best efforts, someday the artifice of “normality” had to fall away. It did, early one Sunday afternoon when I was twelve. My cousin was sixteen.
I put on my blue velour robe and padded down the rickety stairs. My cousin was watching an old black-and-white movie on our black-and-white TV set. He wore only his Ewing High School J.V. basketball shorts, black with waxy yellow lettering. I sat next to him on the couch, silent. He would occasionally sneak glances at me. The glances grew longer and longer.
I noticed his slightly parted thick lips. Uncomfortable, I stood up and went to the front door. I pretended to look out the window up Field Avenue. The street was empty.
My cousin got up from the couch and stood behind me. He lightly brushed the soft fabric of my robe. “Let’s get gay,” he fawned in a mock faggy tone. “Let’s get gay.” He rubbed his huge hands over the thin fabric that separated them from my behind. He pulled up the robe.
Exposed and naked, my erection to the wind, I wanted to melt into his arms, to be held by him, to desperately answer the questions my soul had been avoiding, but I also wanted to shield my eyes from what was happening.
We went back to the couch, and I felt someone’s hands on my genitals for the first time. They were boiling—his hands and my genitals. I sat back and closed my eyes.
My ecstasy from his touch. My relief from loneliness. Momentarily overcoming fear and shame. Then, the fall. Each of the half-dozen times we did it over the next four years it would be that way. While we were in the act, it was good. His heavy brown body lying against mine, providing the warmth I never thought I would have. He was tender and sweet. But after I came, shame tumbled on top of me, the pleasure buried, suffocated. The disgraceful white goo the physical proof of my spiritual delinquency.
(At the age of six, the author played “sex therapist” with a five-year-old friend, and “explored our sexuality to its fullest.”)
One friend I was very close to was Billy Marlen. Billy was a year behind me in school yet we got along well together. In our friendship, a special camaraderie existed that was rare in my other friendships. There was a brotherhood that does not often occur even between brothers. We shared our toys and spent many summer days building sandcastles on the beach. On rainy days I’d walk down to Billy’s house where we spent the day reading books and building racetracks and playing sex therapist in his basement. We were human beings who knew no social inhibitions and were willing to explore our sexuality to its fullest.
(The author describes his promiscuous sex life while in elementary school.)
Sex continued for me but it was not the same as it was with Billy. It was always readily available after school, during school, at cub scouts, at Sunday School or at summer camp, but that certain element that Billy added was gone.
(The narrator describes the sexual relations he had with various adult men when he was 16 years old.)
I was dating this twenty-five-year-old guy. But then we broke up, because I was messing around with this other guy who was a friend of his, this twenty-seven-year-old, and I was only sixteen. It wasn’t really a right thing, I don’t think, because I knew they were only attracted to me because I was young, and it wasn’t even like they were attracted to me because of my personality or anything like that. So I dated the twenty-seven-year-old for a little bit, and then we broke up, and I got back together with my old boyfriend, and then we broke up again.
When I was with my first boyfriend, we went to a rave; I felt like we could dance together and stuff, and we could kiss and it was cool. But I still felt kind of weird. I used him. And when I was with him, I was really out. I would hold hands everywhere, kiss in public. But it wasn’t so much that I wanted to be kissing him as much as I wanted to be able to be that out; I wanted to get comfortable with it.
I met this one guy in the city, and he came up with us, back up to Petaluma, and we hung out that night. We just totally talked. He was this really cool person. We had sex, and it was really good—five hours of foreplay. That was rad, and I just felt like I could talk to him, like we could really relate. So he came back down to the city, and then I called him that night, or I called him the next day or something, and asked him to come up, and so he rode the bus up, stayed at my house that night, and we had sex again.
He was just rad; he had the body type that I like, a little pale and kind of scrawny–kinda skaterish, like a toned-all-over body. Anyway, so then he went back to the city, and I was supposed to come down to the city and stay at his house on Friday. I called his house and his roommate said, “Maddy doesn’t live here anymore; he went back to Michigan.” He never called me and he’s never called me or written me since then. It was really fucked. I even think that I am in love with him because I just think about him every day. I don’t even know if I’ve ever been in love before this.
(Beginning at the age of five, a young child has sexual encounters with his playmates.)
Throughout his childhood, from age five on, Derek would sneak off with a friend into someone’s basement or the woods along the back alley, where they would take off their pants and play with each other, usually fondling each other’s genitals. It became habitual.
“At that time, I didn’t quite have a name for it,” says Derek. “It was something that I liked doing, that felt good, that I wanted to do as often as I could. The other kids always recognized it as being something bad and dirty. And all I wanted to know was, When can we do it again?”
(A man recounts how he had his first sexual experience at age 12, and then recalls fondly the anal sex he had at fifteen with a much older man.)
“I just remember, when I was twelve or so, Derek walking into my room and finding me making out with Timmy Musseo. And he just said excuse me and closed the door.”
Philip’s jaw dropped. “You were making out with boys when you were twelve?”
“Eleven,” Eliot said. “Geoffrey and Derek only found out when I was twelve.”
“Then how old were you when you first had sex?”
Eliot shrugged. “I’m not sure,” he said. “How do you define sex? If orgasm is the criterion, twelve. If anal or oral penetration is necessary, fifteen.”
“And was that with Timmy Musseo?”
“No, no,” Eliot said “Timmy Musseo had a girlfriend by that time. My first experience was with a much older man, a friend of Derek’s. He and Geoffrey never found out about it. Probably they still don’t know.”
“How old is older?”
“Oh, let’s see,” Eliot said. “When I was fifteen, he must have been twenty-nine, thirty. My age now. He came and stayed with me at the house whenever Derek and Geoffrey went away.”
“Did he seduce you?”
“I seduced him,” Eliot said, and laughed. “Oh, he wanted to for as long as I did. But I think he was afraid Derek would send him up for statutory rape or something. I was irresistible at fifteen. I kept asking him to give me massages, playing the little nubile waif. And finally–well, he couldn’t hold back anymore.” He sighed. “It was a wild night. We did everything.”
(A young activist denounces “this white-supremacist, capitalist heteropatriarchy.”)
(Presented at Pride 1997, Olympia, Wash.)
The term diversity has become more than trite these days. Slap a rainbow flag on your car and you’re well on the way to “diverse” liberalism. A true commitment to diversity, however, requires a closer look at the privileges and oppressions simultaneously affecting each of us and a recognition of both public and private means of resistance. In many ways I have privilege: I am white, middle-class, and attending college. These factors grant me certain societally bestowed benefits. In other ways, I am systemically oppressed: as a woman, as a youth, as a person with cerebral palsy, as a bisexual queer. With these attributes, I fail to meet the optimal requirements for functioning in this white-supremacist, capitalist heteropatriarchy.
If you are not part of the system in the optimal way (i.e., as a straight, white, middle-class or upwardly mobile, Christian male), you pose a threat to that dominant system.
(A 13-year-old boy carefully inspects his friend’s genitals, admiring the size of his penis; then the author describes each of their masturbation techniques.)
“How old are you, twelve? I had pubes when I was twelve,” Donnie said in disbelief.
“I’m thirteen and I do have some pubes,” I said. “Just not a lot.”
Donnie moved toward me. “‘Let’s see. I bet you’ve got more than you think.” I started to unzip my fly to show him when his mom yelled again for us to turn the music down before she came down and did it herself. I nervously zipped my jeans back up.
Donnie said, “It’s weird. I’m only two years older than you, but look at mine.” He sat on the edge of his bed and slid his jeans down to his knees. He pulled on his pubes and showed me how thick his hair was. He wasn’t self-conscious at all. It felt like he was showing me a science project or something. He let me examine his dick and pubes close up. I had never seen that much pubic hair that close before. I only had a few pubic hairs, but I kept a vigilant watch over them. I counted them and watched them grow. I knew whenever a new one appeared. Donnie’s pubes looked so good, so exciting to me. Blood started rushing around me. I felt warm. I felt happy and hopeful at the thought that someday soon I would have that much, too. Donnie was proud of himself. That close, his pubic hair looked like a dense forest. There was a dark moist smell. Kind of familiar, but different from my own. More like a man smell than a boy smell. I was in awe not only of his pubes but because I wanted to have a dick the size of his, with all that hair. Compared to Donnie’s mature dick with that thick bush at its base, mine was a naked pencil. I was surprised that his dick was big. He was kind of overweight, just a big kid really. I told him I thought fat guys had small dicks. He didn’t get upset that I called him fat. He said matter-of-factly, “Some of ‘em do.”
He spread the Playboy open on the bed and showed me how he jacked off. I sat next to him and watched as he spit in his hand and rubbed it on the head of his dick. Then he wrapped his hand around his dick and moved it quickly up and down. He didn’t get very hard. It was just a demonstration. I was too shy to tell him how I did it. When I masturbated I had to be quiet so I wouldn’t wake up my brothers. I lay on my stomach and humped the mattress until I came. My sheets always had yellow crusty stains on them, but my mother never mentioned it even though she was the one who washed them.
(A girl describes how she became “fuck buddies” with another girl while at the same time having a boyfriend.)
The girls I have gone out with have been high school age or a little bit older. I went out with this girl Jennay, and with her, it was just total attractiveness. I got to know her on a different level, and we became lovers. It’s funny to say it, but we didn’t really relate emotionally. So we sort of became fuck buddies. This was actually going on at the same time I was going out with Mark, so it was kinda bad.
(The author describes various sexualized public restroom incidents.)
The little man in a checked sports jacket stands too close to me at the urinal. Is he subnormal? Doesn’t he understand social distance? He has an accent—British? Cockney? Maybe he’s wearing a bowler? “Excuse me?”
“Xxxx’x x xxxx xxxx xxx xxxx xxxxx.”
“That’s a nice cock you have there.” He’s offering his, a prim pink boutonniere; I can see why he likes mine better. A nice cock? Is it separate from my body, which is not nice? Separate, like my beautiful eyes? He’s will-less as a dust bunny, and when I tap him on the shoulder, he drifts away.
Later, in a smelly gas-station toilet, I realize the wad of toilet paper left on top of the dispenser is filled with someone’s sperm. Some pervert left it there, I tell myself wonderingly. To be found, I add. And recognized. As what? An offering, an assertion? I don’t forget to be grossed out. I smell it—sure enough, sperm. Consciousness the predicament, orgasm the escape. I look around for the masturbator as though I’m dreaming, as though I can hear his I’m coming noises.
(The author mentions how, while in fifth and sixth grade [age 10 and 11], he often had sex with his male classmates.)
Fortunately, even though being homosexual laid heavily on my conscience during fifth and sixth grades, sex was nevertheless still available. No feelings of guilt entered my mind when having sex with other boys because sex was something spontaneous, and a satisfaction of certain needs.
(At the age of 12, the author reports being taken aback when the friend with whom he frequently had gay sex asked him “What would you do if you had some pussy right now?”)
As I entered seventh grade, I noticed that kids were changing physically as well as socially.
Interestingly, Bob Cote and I began a sexual relationship. In fact, we had sex together quite frequently. So I was completely taken by surprise one day at the lunch table when he tried to initiate me into the conversation about heterosexuality.
“How about you, Aaron, what would you do if you had some pussy right now?”
(The narrator regrets that as a teenager he was too shy to hook up with an older man.)
I’ve never been with a guy yet. I was tempted once. I was in this store–a clothes shop or something. Well, this guy was looking at me and my friend pointed it out. I was gonna go up and talk to the guy, but the guy was twenty-something. He was good-looking, too. This was like a year and a half ago or something. I was really screwed up—not sure how I felt. I didn’t say anything. I remembered going home and wishing that I had said something.
(A memoir in which the author begins masturbating at the age of nine, later bemoaning the culture which said it was not OK.)
I discovered masturbation when I was nine. But because of other Christian peers and teachers, I learned it was not OK. According to them, the only time a woman should be sexual was after she got married. My parents did not talk about sex or sexual orientation. The only thing my mother told me was, “Don’t get raped.” She did not describe what it meant to be raped, let alone what it meant to have a healthy relationship, to have sexual intercourse, or the consequences thereof. How was I to know how I could protect myself? How could I protect myself when I wasn’t confident in my own body?
(A five-year-old girl and a six-year-old girl engage in sex games.)
I am five and Katie is six. Her birthday is in September. Mine is in June. We are both in kindergarten, she in the p.m. class and me in the a.m., but we go to day care together. We are best friends.
Today I am going to Katie’s for a playdate.
Katie pulls her shorts off. She is wearing blue and white polka-dotted Hanes underwear, the kind that I have at home. They come in a three-pack with a matching blue pair and a matching white pair. She lies down on her floor and pulls her underwear off over her butt, and tells me to spank her because she’s the baby and I’m the mommy. It seems kind of weird and she yells at me to do it. Then she makes me be the baby and she spanks me, too. She tells me that I should learn how to French-kiss because boys always do that, so she kisses me and puts her tongue in my mouth. I roll my tongue hot-dog style, because that is fun.
Her mommy drives me home, and in the backseat of her white car Katie Frenches me again.
We are in second grade now, and Katie still makes me practice Frenching her.
(A boy avoids a schoolyard fight in order to engage in “a masturbation marathon” instead, then adds that he prefers teachers’ bodies to students’ bodies.)
My wrestling partner, fellow lightweight, a boy with “skaggy” chin-length hair, called me out—dared me to fight him, tomorrow after school. I agreed to the duel.
His skinny arms were nothing to fear, and yet I stayed home from school the next day and had a masturbation marathon instead.
We’d planned to rendezvous by the locked, parked bikes, near the ecological simulacrum of a habitat, created by the science teacher to show us how to respect the planet.
I preferred teacher to student bodies, with a few exceptions.
(A group of 9- and 10-year-old boys all get erections together in a tent.)
Sleep-away camp lent itself to exploration as well. The summer between fourth and fifth grade I learned what an erection was. Six guys in a tent without a parental figure and instructed to go to bed had no intention of falling asleep until our eyelids felt like anvils. At some point, the conversation turned to sex. And that same friend who enjoyed mooning the guys also instructed us, using his own body for visual proof, as to what an erection was. Soon after, we were all erect, with very little inkling that what we were doing would be considered by some to be wrong.
(The author discusses the psychological issues his sex partner experienced when they were both 12 years old.)
My school life was becoming lonelier. Most of my former friends ignored me. Bob and I stayed friendly and kept up our sex life together, but many times Bob also talked about fantasies with females and salami. Bob felt guilty about having sex with me and pretended that we never did. It was frustrating because now, more than ever, I wanted to communicate with someone about my sexuality – but there was no one available. Although Bob provided sexual stimulation, there was little other communication between us; he was too inhibited. In fact, one time he refused to have sex unless we first hypnotized each other into being different people: he would be a woman while satisfying me, and then we would switch. I went along with it but felt ridiculous when the two identities he had chosen for us turned out to be Ann-Margret and Jaclyn Smith. My part was Ann-Margret, of course.
Bob and I had sex often yet there was always that suppressive air.
(The narrator describes how the other teens in his social circle “have sex all the time” and “go down to the Castro and pick up guys.”)
With queer kids I meet outside of the youth group, it’s the only thing we have in common is that we’re gay and we’re young. They just go to clubs and get fucked up and have sex all the time. They go down to the Castro and pick up guys. And I know it’s their internalized homophobia and that kind of stuff and they’re dealing with that.
(Two second-grade boys engage in sex-play when the adults aren’t looking.)
Troy and Jordan soon discovered they shared a common secret—they both were infatuated with boys. They would compare their affections for boys they knew at their school and tease each other about their latest crushes. Both admired one boy in particular, a second-grader named Kelly. Kelly was exceptionally good-looking. Troy remembers thinking he was the type of boy who surely would grow up to be strikingly handsome. Troy and Jordan vied unabashedly for his attention, pushing and elbowing to sit by his side during lunch, and showing off during recess. It was Jordan who won out, finally capturing Kelly’s interest. He invited Kelly over to his home, where they would roll and tumble together on an old mattress down in the basement, out of sight of any adult, kissing and hugging under blankets and sheets, sometimes without their clothes.
(A girl describes how at the age of 12 she announced to her entire elementary school that she is a lesbian.)
Coming Out in Middle School
I first began to come out when I was 11. In terms of my family, I was fortunate because my parents have always been accepting of my sexual identity. It was really great to have their backing, especially considering that a lot of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people don’t have that kind of family support. I come from a political, staunchly liberal family; I guess you could say I inherited my parents’ socialist genes. However, the school I was going to when I came out was immensely different from my home situation.
I was in sixth grade and attending a Catholic school in San Francisco when I came out to a small group of people. (I was actually raised in an agnostic household, but the Catholic school was three blocks away from where I lived.) My fellow students had already assumed I was a queer because I defended queer people and got angry at folks in my class when they said the word “faggot.” So of course they were making accusations about my sexuality left and right. Still, I didn’t feel comfortable coming out to all of them.
During this time I started attending LYRIC, the Lavender Youth Recreation and Information Center, a wonderful program and hang-out space for LGBT youth in San Francisco. Just hanging out with other queer youth and finding a place where I could get support was incredible. Programs that give queer youth a space to be safe are really important, and I know that finding LYRIC helped me out a lot.
The next year I was in seventh grade. At that point I was tired of being harassed, and I had gotten to a place in my life where I could actually deal with the harassment and stand up to people who hurt me. I realized I could only be happy if I was honest with the people around me. So at the age of 12 1 came out to my entire elementary school, which included grades K-8.
(As a six-year-old, the author became sexually aroused by Batman and GI Joe, and “messed around” with his playmates.)
One day when I was about six, while watching a Batman episode with Cheryl, I casually commented on the anatomical proportions of Batman. I knew no reason to stifle my aroused sexual feelings, so I just mentioned that I liked what I saw. Cheryl freaked out. It was my first lesson that talking about this subject made people upset.
This was the first time I had spoken of my sexual thoughts although I had been having those thoughts for as long as I could remember. Already I was undressing my GI Joe dolls, and I had messed around with some of my male playmates, but it never crossed my mind to mention my feelings to anyone.
(Two 11-year-old boys sneak into a school closet to have a sexual encounter, but are interrupted by a teacher before they can begin.)
Something was in the air, and it wasn’t just pot smoke. But at age eleven I was alert to it, sniffing it out like a caged animal keenly sensing freedom. That year was an awakening for me. Puberty struck like violent spring weather. The boys of my new school, East Meadow Elementary in Palo Alto, were sexual boys, and I had never been cast among sexual boys before. It’s not that they were having sex; rather, they radiated sex, its power and allure. We were a school of boys coming into sticky heat. We got hard in our pants, grabbed at one another’s crotches, traded sex drawings we sketched covertly during class. We talked solemnly about the mysterious and exciting changes happening to our bodies, the public hair some of us were beginning to sprout, our nipples that felt strangely sensitive. Overnight we became achingly aware of our penises.
In the school library there was a supplies closet where some of the boys, it was rumored, went when the library wasn’t in use. One spring afternoon, as Lex Bancroft and I, unsupervised, shelved books—an honor bestowed from time to time on A students—he confided to me that he and Brian Freeman had gone to the closet the week before. The window shades were down to indicate the library was closed, but still the afternoon light suffused the room with a tender glow. Lex hooked his thumbs through the belt loops of his jeans and splayed his fingers against his pelvis as if in triumph. Did I want to go? he wondered.
Those of us who had not been to the closet could only speculate about what, exactly, went on in there. I felt a bright spasm of longing–everything in the room seemed at once vague and luminous; we were on the verge, I sensed, of something truly amazing–when the door opened and our teacher, Mr. Bouchner, appeared to tell us the news that Martin Luther King had just been assassinated in that faraway city where I had grown up.
This post was so long that I cut it in half.
Part II is here.

That is actually a good idea to post on the web the content of what the radicals teach the children.
Lord, I pray loudly to you on this wonderful blog to STOP these evil evil people. Don’t allow them to expose our children to their evil, sick way of life. Please, Lord take down and expose this evil corrupted presidency and democ rat senate and congress.Amen
That was friggin’ nasty.
I couldn’t read all of it and skipped to the end.
Jim, Do you know of any schools that are actually giving those books to kids….?
Thank you so much for helping us to better understand the evilness of those people. This is the most discusting, corrupted, and evil president, take that back he is NOT the president, that our country that we have ever had. What a bunch of evil, evil people.
If they want to be sinful and lust after the same sex (uck) partner then do it in your bedroom. I used to feel sorry for gays and lesbo’s because I thought it was a physical thing…….. not any more.
December 4th, 2009 | 6:41 am | #5
If I had a child in any public school, I would yank them out.
Please parents, save your children from the lunatics on the left. TAKE THEM OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOL AND SAVE THEM FROM THE BRAINWASHING.
We need to go back to segregation.
I’d pull the content and your descriptions though, and just put the book titles as links. You could put your description/summary behind the title links.
We get it well loudly and clearly w/o having to read it. Anyone (children/teens) can access this site and I think you feed into it to have the detail you have posted. Once read it is in the brain….
You also may be risking losing readers, because key terms may set up filters….
December 4th, 2009 | 6:50 am | #8
My wife has a bachelors degree in elementary education. I plan to make sure that once we have children they NEVER attend public or even private schools. I am sure by the time me and my wife have children this kind of horse s**t will be mandatory learning material.
I can, with all confidence, say that’s pornography and IMHO not fit for adults let alone children.
If you want to destroy a society, this is how you would do it.
What I would like to know is who is going to protect the school children from the safe schools czar and all his pedophile buddies….?
That was gay porn plain and simple. Jennings is a pedophile and he wants to sexualize little boys that bleepin’ pervert.
That guy shouldn’t be anywhere near a little boy or a school for that matter.
He should be in jail.
Is this what the Dems mean when they say “for the children”? This is sick.
December 4th, 2009 | 7:01 am | #12
SHOCKED!!! Why is this dirtbag in the position he is in in the Obama Administration? Obama? Explanation needed. Obama? Waiting…waiting…waiting…
December 4th, 2009 | 7:03 am | #13
I could not read beyond the introductory paragraphs. This is worse than porn, because it will be forced on the children by the government.
Please, clean up this article and post only links to the smut. We should know about it, but we needn’t read the filth or view the images. Thank you.
December 4th, 2009 | 7:05 am | #14
After scrolling through that rubbish that seemed to go on forever, I actually saw a positive aspect to being illiterate (and I’ve devoted my adult life to reading instruction). Government education truly has become a cancer on Western society.
This material is clearly part of aggressive promotion of homosexuality. There is nothing ’safe school’ about it.
Further, ’self-esteem’ has no relationship to ethics or morals, it’s just more edu-babble nonsense. People feel good when they do good, not the reverse.
Best regards, Peter Warner.
December 4th, 2009 | 7:07 am | #15
Yikes! I fail to see what this material has to do with tolerance regarding sexual orientation.
agree- get rid of the content and just have links. You do more harm than good and simply feed the fire.
Thank you for the important warning- it defies belief. That is why they are doing it so boldly- they know we are not watching/expecting this audacity..
But- your site is WAY too important to lose any readers, either b/c it is blocked or b/c people don’t want to see the detail you have posted.
If you just do links and titles everyone will still “get it”.
nice if they would promote the 3 r’s. a friend of mine teachs at a college and says that the incoming has to be brought up to speed before they even start college work. during the summer Amy Proctor had a post about Obama voting for sex-ed for kindergarteners. how much of what he promotes is left to interpretation.
This is just plain evil.
It’s prurient writing to provoke images and to excite the imagination. It’s everything evil.
From imagination comes experimentation. It’s disgusting.
UGH – words can’t express.
I would prefer not to have it all out in the open like that. A summary page (maybe the brown text) would be good and then you have to choose to see that junk (unlike children who don’t have that choice). I posted it on my facebook but broke the link so no one could accidentally click on it.
Please clean this post up! Put the reading as links. I only had to read a few lines to be disgusted and did not read anymore. If this is the reading list than there are records from the library/school or otherwise how often these are checked out.
This dirt bag should be put away in jail!
I understand reporting this to get this viral but please clean it up. You will lose readers.
What the he!! Is wrong with this country?
This was sick and terrifying–I couldn’t read more than a few paragraphs, but I’m glad you posted it. People need to be aware of what they want our children to read.
Not for kids and not for me. Couldn’t/didn’t read beyond the beginning. Was offended by their use of the Boy Scout pic.
Would appreciate an action item (call,email, contact) so we can DO something about this trash. Cleaned up version should be posted to news sites and blogs everywhere.
I am shocked! What is this, HBO Afterdark??
My outrage is beyond what I can even write here.
December 4th, 2009 | 8:02 am | #26
Leave the content and posting as is. This filth and perversion needs to be exposed in the bright light of day.
Remember during the campaign when Obama was a proponent of “age appropriate”
SIECUS (Sexual Information & Education Council for the United States) program being taught in public schools?
I vividly recall reviewing online the shocking published SIECUS “standards” wherein even K-gartners would be introduced to concepts of homosexuality and masturbation.
Obama just pirouetted around this position, emphasizing what a sound, progressive, sex ed this SIECUS program was. I didn’t buy it then. And this content is prurient and pornographic by any standard.
Looks like Obama kept this disgusting campaign promise…with a vengeance.

Literature is a treasure trove of history.
If you read Jane Austen, her novels are wonderful documentaries on class mores and values. You can understand the roles of men and women in that generation. Her novels also did not only speak to the historical context of societal expectations, but they also explored the human conditions of love, and how that emotion was displayed.
The same can be said about these perverse writings. They illustrate where American society is and what it values. I didn’t read all of this pornography (that’s what it is), I just couldn’t read it and think our children are exposed to these stories.
Think about a Jane Austen novel or one of these contemporary works. Look at both with a critical eye. Then tell me which promotes grace and dignity, and which promotes following base emotions and urges. Not all literary works leave you with a ending you would have hoped for, but isn’t that what life is? Life is a story filled with sadness and joy, struggles and successes. THAT makes a great story and the reader is hopefully left with an insight he/she didn’t have before reading the work. What is the reader left with after reading this literature promoted by Jennings? Pediophelia, shame, exploitation, loss of innocence…gee, these are the struggles I want my children to learn in school. Those values will help them in the working world.
When did we lose our capacity for responsibility to live by certain moral laws and protect our children? Our children are being exposed to dangerous forces. Some people don’t believe in evil, but I do. And this is what it is. I guess that’s where our literature is right now, so I will make the obvious deduction and state, this is where our society is….but this is not a relevation to any of you reading this site. I don’t care what Jennings’ personal issues are, but it is apparent he has an agenda, not an educational theory for our children. Thinking about that last sentence, none of these czars are looking out for the best for Americans, they are working out their childhood issues.
He needs to go. And not just Jennings. Obama with his appointments grants his tacit approval with his czars’ decisions.
This is part of the over all assault on our country that Obama and his leadership has wished for for a long time. Indeed, with the myriad of legislation, programs, et al that is happening so fast, it is no wonder that America can’t keep up. It is time for the electorate to put a stop to all of this, a national time-out, if you will. This isn’t just sick, it is illegal to promote underage sex with adults.
Why the surprise?
Communists can do any goddam thing that they want. It’s their Marx-given right.
And 53% of the American people voted for this disgusting crap. (Many, simply because they support a woman’s right to choose a late term abortion, the most important issue in all of history.)
I am, like everyone else here, repulsed by what I read. However, I think the content should be left up. It’s one thing to say what is in these books, it’s quite another to read it. If you google “who supports GLESN” you’ll end up with a PDA brochure that has Citigroup, IBM, Perrier, Kodak and JP Morgan ads in it. Money talks; it wouldn’t hurt to let the above advertisers know that you won’t do business with firms that promote the sexualization of children.
I am so sick about this I can’t speak! What good would come out of a child or teenager reading this garbage! My precious children will be protected from this evil and will read only classics in school. I am just sick that this is out there for children….I have no words for this……
I know talking about Communism has become somehow declasse, but here’s an excerpt from the 45 declared goals of communist takeover:
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
Of course, all this is predicated on controlling the schools, which has already been accomplished.
Sick. Sick. Sick. Ad infinitum sick.
And this creep is “safe schools czar”?!?
The stuff he wants to unleash is children is a classic example of “creating a hypersexualized environment”. Most of it is pr0n, pure and simple — and a good part of it is too sick to read as pr0n even if you’re “teh ghey” yourself.
This is helping to expose Barry for what he really stands for! Leave the post alone. I chose not to read very much but…… I sure got the picture fast.
[...] This is from one of the books in the reading lists provided for children by GLSEN. For the full story, see the post at the Gateway Pundit. [...]
What about the pigs who write this stuff and then call themselves “writers”.
For God’s sake please put a jump in this post or a drop down, something. I realize why you would want people to see this shocking material but even for those of us who would rather not see it, its hard not to see it as we are scrolling down to look at other posts. For some of us, the language and illustrations can be captured as a screen shot on our work computers even if we are just trying to get past it, it could look very bad.
That is what just happened to me even though I was scrolling past as fast as I could. I hope I was going too fast.
NO MORE HIDING! DO NOT hide this script with a link. People must be incensed enough to act. This SHOULD offend ones senses or we will not act.
I said it before, and I’ll say it again. Rick Santorum was right. He was the only senator, as far as I know, who stepped out and told us, in no uncertain terms, exactly what the “gay rights” movement was going to mean for our country, and for that he took a lot of flack. But at the end of the day, he was right, and everyone else was lying, and these documents prove it.

Ok – this is about one of the sickest things I have ever seen. Not because I am a prude or hate homosexuals… But because it is intended for CHILDREN!!!
Jim – leave this post as is. I agree that it is very disturbing to read, and I could not get through more than 3 or 4 posts before scrolling to the comments, but unless people actually see what is being forced on to our children (in all it’s detail), then this story will fall by the wayside.
To all the people asking for it to be removed (with links provided), I understand where you are coming from… but, think of this:
If someone had ‘told’ you about the ACORN videos, would it have had the same effect as you actually WATCHING those videos?
To defeat these snakes, we are going to have to tread into some very dark places and confront some very disgusting topics. The Left knows we do not want to go there and they have used our very decency against us for years.
It is time we confronted them on their own territory and defeat them once and for all!

As disgusting as it is to read/see any of this, it’s important for us to see this material. The visceral reaction it provokes might spur us to take back our schools, for which WE pay, from the teachers unions, the Communists, and the pornographers who now run them.
This is the kind of thing that demands attention, it demands action. Those of us on the right are too busy working, paying the bills, paying the taxes, and raising families to get in the streets. That has to change, and it has to change right now. We need to become so aware, and so incensed, that we realize that it doesn’t matter if we lose our jobs, we have to get out there and make changes. We have to drive people to the polls, and make phone calls, and run for School Boards, and reject this for our children. What good will it do us to keep our jobs if Obama and his crew of filth-mongering Communists retain control of the country? Your job will be gone anyway, and if you keep it, your children will be rape-bait for degenerates like Mr. Jennings. Your taxes will not permit you to keep your house, drive your car, or send your kids to a decent school where they can escape Marxist indoctrination.
Leave this up, but tag Obama’s name and picture to it. This is HIS agenda, these are HIS people. We can’t play nice with these so-called “progressives” any more. Is is any wonder that they all support Roman Polanski, the child-rapist? It seems this is one of the tenets of the Leftist Faith. “Thou shalt sexually assault and pervert whoever thou desireth, especially the children.” Democrat=Nambla.
We need to make them defend every word of this in 2010 and 2012. Every Republican candidate needs to walk around with a powerpoint presentation consisting of these posts. Ask the people outside of Greenwich Village and Malibu if they want their kids taught by these people? My guess is that flyover country would hang their Democrat reps on the spot in the public square. That’s the kind of groundswell of emotion we need to combat these committed Communists who are destroying our institutions, and our nation.

As revolting and disgusting and NSFW this post is, I have to thank Jim Hoft for posting this, because if stuff like this is required reading in our public schools, we need to know about it.
I’m tempted to call this “virtual child molestation.” It’s as if our “Safe School Czar” and his pet project GLSEN were trying to get students accustomed to the idea of statutory rape without the parents’ knowledge. The only way this could be worse is if this Kevin Jennings creep actually turned out to be a sex offender.
Two words: Private School.
..or maybe Home School.
These people have violated their responsibilities to our children and our culture, and richly deserve to fail now. We can take their power by removing our children from their care, then begin to move to remove taxpayer funding from them.

I can, with all confidence, say that’s pornography and IMHO not fit for adults let alone children.
It’s worse than pornography; it’s child pornography and should be illegal to distribute and to possess just as child porn is illegal to distribute and to possess.
These books absolutely should not be made available to children or their teachers. It’s a sad and frightening fact that pedophiles often choose careers, such as teaching, that provide them access to children. In the hands of those sick teachers, these stories are promotional materials for adult-child sex. These fond memories, supposedly written by adult victims of sexual molestation, are affirmation that adult-child sex is natural and even beneficial to children. I’m absolutely certain that as these books become more widely available and read by more teachers, incidences of rape and sexual molestation of children in our public schools will increase dramatically.
Removing these books from public school children’s availability will be a legal battle. Removing them from teachers’ reading lists will require a legal war. And unfortunately, reclassifying them as child porn and rendering the distribution and possession of them illegal will be impossible. But we should try just the same.

I’ve done my part and forwarded these two posts to all the MSM news outlets, so they can’t claim not to know about it. There is no excuse not to cover this story except the conscious choice not to do so.
I suggest you do the same, so they know there is interest in this story.
Costa and others –
I, too, was disgusted with what I read. I could only read the first three and then had to stop. It’s disgusting and inappropriate.
That being said, THIS MUST BE SEEN. It must be documented. Remember the ACORN scandal? When it first came to light, we were assured that it was an aberration, an anomaly. But it wasn’t. It kept going on and on and on.
This is the same thing. It is NOT an aberration. It is their standard operating procedures and it MUST be seen and documented.
The case against these animals has to be air tight or they will weasel their way out of it, find some sort of excuse.
Despicable is to kind to describe this.Others are not printable. This should be all over the net and soon.
I’ve read psychology studies suggesting that many cases of homosexuality can result from child abuse rather than natural genetic disposition. Quotes from these novels definitely lend some credence to that theory. I’d personally go even further and suggest that culture can increase homosexual and bisexual behavior. It’s no secret that homosexuality and bisexuality has dramatically increased in recent years. Especially among young girls. They’re constantly bombarded with Girld Gone Wild ads and popular youth websites and Hollywood movies and music videos that all praise female homosexuality. You simply cannot watch movies or television or listen to music or go on the internet without having the message hammered into your head that being a lesbian is he sexiest and coolest thing you could ever be. No wonder you see so much girl on girl kissing these days as guys gather round and cheer and take pictures. Personally I’ve always found it disgusting and not sexually appealing at all. But I guess as a young man I’m definitely in the minority. I’m really worried about the demographics of our society. If more and more men and more and more women become gay due to peer pressure then how are we going to keep programs like social security afloat? I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if this “gay is sexy” trend was being pushed by these “there’s too many ugly humans on planet earth” and “f**k the West” types.
Perhaps Michelle Obama would like to review these books for her daughter? Maybe someone should send her the set.
December 4th, 2009 | 10:28 am | #60
You know, when I was in school, we didn’t have any of this. Not even “sex ed”. Not even that.
And you know what?
On my school, with 800 students, we didn’t have one single teenage mom. Not one. We also didn’t have any STDs.
Today schools here have sex ed. And you can see teenage moms on pretty much every street corner and STDs are running rampant.
But we neeeeeed sex ed, right?
And of course we need this too, right? Funded by the taxpayer.
Like here in Vienna. There is this “gay and lesbian house”. Mind you, I don’t care what people do in their bedroom as long as it is consensual and nobody is violated and used against their will, but… why the f**k do I have to pay for that? I’m a taxpayer. WTF?!
And then I get called “breeder” and almost discriminated against because I am, yes, straight.
Can’t wait for them to bring in Kinsey as defense. The guy who got his “data” from criminals and rapists who preyed on children.
Kate said “If you want to destroy a society, this is how you would do it.”
Exactly the point. The proregressive left entered our society through the school’s, and this filth is only a more obvious and visible example of the muddled filth of it’s philosophy.
The end result of their thinking is the destruction of all the West stands for, and it will never be gotten rid of in the govt, until it is ejected from our schools.
As sickening as this material is, it needs to be brought out into the open and shown for what it is.
These revelations are shocking. What’s Obama going to say when he throws his Czar under the bus this time? “Uh, that’s not the Kevin Jennings I blew…uh, I mean,…knew“???
These “educators” should all be in jail as child abusers.

Jesus wept, God help our children.
Looking at the Glsen website you have to ask “would the Republican policy on homosexual extremism in schools be any different”? Glsen claim that they are supported by Goldman Sachs, or Government Sachs.
Glsen have got big friends, so the chance of kicking them out of the schools is pretty low. I wonder what Newt Gingrich thinks as he tours with his pal Al Sharpton on the issue of education?
December 4th, 2009 | 10:54 am | #66
After reading a few of those “articles” I have to say, that’s classic leftist argumentation heavily influenced by Kinsey (who claimed to have found orgasms in babies). Like the 9-year old who was told to stop masturbating in public.
No 9-year old girl would masturbate. Why would she? They’re not sexually developed yet. My “niece” (my ex-girlfriend’s niece who still calls me “uncle”) is 10 next year. I know quite well what girls in that age are interested in, thanks to her and her friends. And it’s definitely not masturbating or even remotely connected to sex. Definitely not.
Those are the wet dreams of pedophiles who want to justify their sick wishes. Nothing more.
This should surprise no one. Their purpose is to corrupt our youth. To make the immoral moral. To break down the family by any means possible so that THERE IS NO FAMILY. They encourage abortions, divorce, false feminism, promiscuity, homosexuality–you name it. This is planned and they are laughing their asses off that they are getting away with it so easily
The sad thing is that I doubt this will make any ripples. Our culture is already so sexualized, and so accepting of the sexualization of children, that people will react with ho-hum. Can’t be prudes or “bigots,” now, can we. They are using the real fact of bullying as a lever by which to promote acceptance of homosexuality. Who could be against “safe schools”?
I’d like to email this to others. Why can’t we anymore?

I have a son out there somewhere whom I placed for adoption. He will be 5 this winter.
I can’t bear the thought of him being exposed to this kind of sickness. I can’t believe this is happening to our country.
Please America, Please! We’ve got to stop this madness. These are defenseless children!
Why don’t we all buy one or two of these books and send them to the White House for Christmas presents for Obama’s princesses? You could put a link up through Amazon, so this site gets the credit.
I seriously want to throw up. Shocked, utterly shocked, and I couldn’t read half of this stuff. This needs to be passed to every person in the US, email it to Bill ORielly, Glenn Beck, and Rush. I would have them ask, would Obama allow his children to read these books? Would they allow this nut to watch their kids or be alone with him? Who made the recommendation for this guy to be in this position? Were they aware of his reading list? DO other schools use this reading list if so, Who? THe authors need to be exposed as well, the names of the book selectors need to be exposed. I would like to see any sponsors who sponsor these books.

I fear we are partially to blame. Conservatives, those who believe fervently in the founding principles, tolerated the left pushing pushing pushing for the last 50 years. We were not ever- vigilant. We gave in on the small stuff be it a creche in front of the town hall or loosening of a school dress code. We failed to see the traction they were getting, using our desire for freedom against us, never insisting on the prosecution of those who abused the citizens or the law. Not enough of us choose to serve in the government so our side could be heard, instead we went about our lives as if the business of America was only doing business. Now we find our government controlled by the enemy. This is unbelievable, but true.
And there seems to be but one individual on the national scene willing and happy to speak up for us. One.

No good. All the teachers come from the same teachers colleges.
Home schooling and becoming a self educating autodidact (hence my blogs name ‘Blogodidact), are your only options.
The good news is that there is plenty of worthwhile information out there to teach yourself from. Everything which went into the education of our Founder’s generation, is available free and online through sites like,
The Founders Constitution,
The Online Library of Liberty
It’s the only way out of this mess.

I am disgusted and consider myself an ‘enlightened’ individual regarding sexual matters. I am so angry and frustrated that they would expose a child to such horrid thoughts and ideas at such a young age. What is he going to recommend next… having little girls deflowered at the tender age of 4 to insure that they embrace their inner woman? Just sick, sick, sick, sick, sick. When did insanity become the fashion?
“We get it well loudly and clearly w/o having to read it.”
NO. No one will get it unless they read it. You must be forced to witness this in order to act on your outrage. As with the holocaust, no would believe it if they didn’t witness it themselves. A brief recap doesn’t cut it.
Jennings should be dismissed immediately. All public schools should be forced to issue a statement immediately rejecting any policy set forth by the president’s “safe schools” projects.
Lastly, parents should pull their students from public school until Jennings is gone, and his curriculum is banished. If the kids don’t show up, the school isn’t funded.
OMG! No way I could get thru all that. I am glad my kids are in a private Christian school but if these stories are even partly true, there are references to Sunday School, Youth group meetings,and even church liasions, geez. No wonder I shelter my kids. It must have been instict! I know my kids will get exposed to this nonsense at some point but hopefully since my wife and I are involved with their lives they will be able to get the correct answers to there questions and not sneak around reading this crap!

While I agree that some of this material is not appropriate for children… but… some of it is. Have most of you forgotten your own childhood? The curiosity of sex? Most of these stories are the retelling of these childhood experiences. If these would have been straight sexual experiences of children would it have made it any less shocking? I remember playing ‘Doctor’ with the neighbor boy when we were both quite young. Getting naked with him because I was curious and because it was exciting. We can’t ignore that children do have these urges and curiosities. As adults we try to make these things shameful to try to control these natural urges… when we should really be talking to our kids about how normal this is, without encouraging it.
Sex needs to come out from the dark ages people.
Unbelievable. This isn’t just porn, it’s child porn, and it’s promoting prostitution and child rape. It does nothing to promote healthy, loving relationships and it does everything to promote promiscuous sex, unhealthy and life-scarring sex encounters. It wouldn’t matter if all of this was about heterosexual relationships; it is so totally inappropriate for any age child that I can’t believe teachers haven’t made this public! Are they so indoctrinated and guilt-ridden that they’ve been bullied into believing that this is appropriate? That’s almost as shocking to me as is the the “literature” itself.
Don’t filter this. Leave it all up just as it is. I am going to send this to every middle school and high school principal in my city, and to the superintendent’s office as well.
Thanks for doing the research.

Squirrel Girl- I have kids- do you? It is not moral to provide a twelve year old with these explicit descriptions of sex and it is not moral to lead a twelve year old to believe that these types of activities are normal for a twelve year old. What is right is to teach children that it is moral to not engage in sexual activity at a young age. If you think it is normal for 12 year old’s to be having sex or to be given sexually explicit materials by an adult, especially an adult in authority, like a teacher than you are perverse beyond helping. Sex is not shameful, it is unhealthy for young kids, and potentially deadly, and certainly inappropriate in the classroom.

“Natural” is not an argument of value with respect to “moral.”
In fact, it is a basic premise that morality is concerned primarily with the resistance to or denial of individual “natural” urges for a purpose of greater value than immediate personal gratification.
Theft is natural. Killing your own kind in competition for food is natural. Rape is natural. Your dog crapping on your neighbor’s yard is natural. Letting old and unproductive members of society starve is natural. Not risking your own neck for the sake of your neighbor’s kids is natural. Subjugating the weak for your own benefit is natural.Incest is natural.
The purpose of a society and thus also of a moral code is to deny the natural.
Arguing that a child’s interest in sex is natural is no more a defense of refusing to instill moral behavior in that child, than is arguing that a child’s interest in the violent acquisition of another’s property is natural.
Sexual activity is actively dangerous for children. Hell’s bells, it’d dangerous enough for supposedly mature adults!

If this isn`t enough proof that the “Inmates Are Running The Asylum”….I really don`t know what is.
Leave the excerps from the books up, people need to know just how evil this is!
“Safe School Czar”……the PC definition of a pedophile trying to sexualize children!!!
This stuff is so sick, bunch of filthy pigs!
These people need to be taken down, thrown into prison, left there to rot!!!
In regards to the whole debate about posting a link or leaving it up there, I’m favoring the latter. I just read this story on Hotair and it’s FAR less powerful when she just posted two excerps and a link.
Please get rid of most of the content and just have links. You do more harm than good and simply feed the fire.
Beyond the disgust, there are some additional concerns–first is that, though these LBGT folks would say being gay is “inborn,” several of these excerpts show that, in fact, sexualization of children by adults BY FORCE is often in play. Do they realize that is what they are showing? Second, clearly many of the descriptions of “memories” from young children are made up by adults and presented as truth–to these perves, every 5 year old playing doctor (normal curiosity about bodies) is a potential gay person… really disgusting and oh so political.
Third, many middle schoolers go through a period of intense hero worship where they ‘love’ people of the same sex–but it’s NOT sexual really, it’s identification that later, as the child grows up, he/she realizes is really admiration. In these grotesque stories, in fact, this normal developmental process is perverted into sexuality–most often by RAPE of the child by the adored adult.
These folks believe that all people are potentially homosexual or bisexual, and clearly, they also think that statutory rape is perfectly ok and even a positive thing for young confused preteens whose sexuality is being awakened and should be both suppressed and channeled during their younger years, not indulged in, turning them into sex addicts. This is NAMBLA’s playbook plain and simple.
Finally, note the undercurrent of anti-Christianity that runs throughout all of these excerpts….the agenda is to destroy Judeo-Christian morality.
My children are grown, but if I had children, I would no longer even consider public school (and I hope my future grandchildren will be spared this too).

This story is extremely disturbing. I do believe it is crucial for people to know what is going on in our school systems. It is also crucial to know the beliefs of those making the decisions for our schools. If my child is ever told to read any of these books, I will fight and fight against it. Thank you for posting the excerpts to these books. I am going to forward this story to as many people as I can.

Once again I am reminded of something Billy Graham said some years ago; If God doesn’t judge America, he owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah.
As I was scanning this article, my children, 4 and 2, walked up to me…I took it as another reminder to ask my 4yo what she should do if someone tries to touch her in her private areas–the answer I’ve taught her is yell ‘NO!’, kick, hit, whatever it takes to make them leave her alone. To hell with being tolerant or ‘open’. No-one has a right to touch or insinuate anything toward my child which makes her uncertain or confused. Doesn’t matter if they’re 50 or 5.
I’m HIGHLY prudent, but I think you should leave the content. As others have said, if the actual content isn’t put out there to see, it will be brushed off as an over-exaggeration by many readers.
