"Fisting [forcing one’s entire hand into another person’s rectum or
vagina] often gets a bad rap....[It’s] an experience of letting somebody
into your body that you want to be that close and intimate with...[and]
to put you into an exploratory mode."
Students Given Graphic Instruction
In Homosexual Sex
By Brian Camenker
and Scott Whiteman
The above quotation comes from Massachusetts Department of Education
employees describing the pleasures of homosexual sex to a group of high
school students at a state-sponsored workshop on March 25, 2000.
On March 25, a statewide conference, called "Teach-Out," was sponsored
by the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Governor’s Commission
on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
Among the goals were to build more Gay/Straight Alliances in Massachusetts
and expand homosexual teaching into the lower grades. Scores of gay-friendly
teachers and administrators attended. They received state "professional
development credits." Teenagers and children as young as 12 were encouraged
to come from around the state, and many were bussed in from their home
districts. Homosexual activists from across the country were also there.
To say that the descriptions below of workshops and presentations of
this state-sponsored event for educators and children are "every parent’s
nightmare," does not do them justice. It is beyond belief that this could
be happening at all. One music teacher who attended out of curiosity said
that she could not sleep for several nights afterwards and had nightmares
"Queer sex for youth, 14-21"
In one well-attended workshop, "What They Didn’t Tell You About Queer
Sex & Sexuality In Health Class: A Workshop For Youth Only, Ages 14-21,"
the three homosexual presenters acting in their professional capacities
coaxed about 20 children into talking openly and graphically about homosexual
sex. The purpose appeared to be to train adults who are running the student
clubs. The three presenters, who described themselves as homosexual,
o Margot E. Abels, Coordinator, HIV/AIDS Program, Massachusetts Dept.
o Julie Netherland, Coordinator, HIV/AIDS Program, Massachusetts Dept.
o Michael Gaucher, Consultant, HIV/AIDS Program, Massachusetts Dept.
of Public Health
The workshop syllabus included:
o "What’s it like to be young, queer and beginning to date?
o "Are lesbians at risk for HIV?…
"We will address the information you want about queer sexuality and
some of the politics that prevent us from getting our needs met."
The workshop opened with the three public employees asking the children
"how they knew, as gay people, whether or not they’ve had sex." Questions
were thrown around the room about whether oral sex was "sex," to which
the Department of Public Health employee stated, "If that’s not sex, then
the number of times I’ve had sex has dramatically decreased, from a mountain
to a valley, baby." Eventually the answer presented itself, and it was
determined that whenever an orifice was filled with genitalia, then sex
had occurred. The Department of Public Health employee, Michael Gaucher,
had the following exchange with one student, who appeared to be about 16
Michael Gaucher: "What orifices are we talking about?"
Michael Gaucher: "Don’t be shy, honey; you can do it."
Student: "Your mouth."
Michael Gaucher: "Okay."
Student: "Your ass."
Michael Gaucher: "There you go."
Student: "Your pussy. That kind of place."
But since sex occurred "when an orifice was filled," the next question
was how lesbians could "have sex." Margot Abels discussed whether a dildo
had to be involved; when it was too big or too small; and what homosexual
resources students could consult to get similar questions answered.
Role playing and "carpet munching"
Then the children were asked to role-play. One student was to act the
part of "a young lesbian who’s really enraptured with another woman, and
it’s really coming down to the wire and you’re thinking about having sex."
The other student played the "hip GSA (gay, straight alliance) lesbian
advisor, who you feel you can talk to." The "counseling" included discussions
of lesbian sex, oral-vaginal contact, or "carpet munching," as one student
put it. The student asked whether it would smell like fish. At that point
the session turned to another subject.
"A lesson in fisting?"
There was a five minute pause so that all of the teenagers could write
down questions for the homosexual presenters. The first question was read
by Julie Netherland, "What’s fisting?"
A student answered this question by informing the class that "fisting"
is when you put your "whole hand into the ass or pussy" of another. When
a few of the students winced, the Department of Public Health employee
offered, "A little known fact about fisting: you don’t make a fist like
this. It’s like this." He formed his hand into the shape of a tear drop
rather than a balled fist. He informed the children that it was much easier.
Margot Abels told the students that "fisting" is not about forcing your
hand into somebody’s "hole, opening or orifice" if they don’t want it there.
She said that "usually" the person was very relaxed and opened him or herself
up to the other. She informed the class that it is a very emotional and
At this point, a youngster of about 16 asked why someone would want
to do that. He stated that if the hand were pulled out quickly, the whole
thing didn’t sound very appealing to him. Margot Abels was quick to point
out that although fisting "often gets a really bad rap," it usually isn’t
about the pain, "not that we’re putting that down." Margot Abels informed
him and the class that "fisting" was "an experience of letting somebody
into your body that you want to be that close and intimate with." When
a child asked the question, "Why would someone do this?" Margot Abels provided
a comfortable response to the children, in order to "put them into an exploratory
"Rubbing each others’ clits…"
Michael Gaucher presented the next question, "Do lesbians rub their
Michael Gaucher and Margot Abels asked the kids if they thought it was
possible and whether someone would do a "hand-diagram" for the class. No
one volunteered, but a girl who looked about 15 or 16 then stepped up to
the board and drew a three foot high vagina and labeled each of the labia,
the clitoris, and "put up inside the ‘G’-spot." While drawing, Michael
Gaucher told her to use the "pink" chalk, to which Margot Abels responded,
"Not everyone is pink, honey." All of the children laughed.
After the chalk vagina was complete, the children remarked on the size
of the "clit," and the presenters stated that that was a gifted woman.
Then Margot Abels informed all of the young girls that, indeed, you can
rub your "clitori" together, either with or without clothes and "you can
definitely orgasm from it." Michael Gaucher told the kids that "there is
a name for this: tribadism," which he wrote on the board and told one girl
who looked about 14 to "bring that vocabulary word back to Bedford." Julie
Netherland informed the children that it wasn’t too difficult because,
"When you are sexually aroused, your clit gets bigger."
"Should you spit after you suck another boy (or a man)?"
Michael Gaucher read the following from a card: "Cum and calories:
Spit versus swallow and the health concerns." Gaucher informed the children
that although he didn’t know the calorie count of male ejaculation, he
has "heard that it’s sweeter if people eat celery." He then asked the boys,
"Is it rude not to swallow?" Many of the high school boys mumbled "No,"
but one about the age of 16 said emphatically, "Oh no!" One boy, again
about the age of 16, offered his advice on avoiding HIV/AIDS transmission
while giving oral sex by not brushing your teeth or eating course food
for four hours before you "go down on a guy," "because then you probably
don’t want to be swallowing cum."
Another question asked was whether oral sex was better with tongue rings.
A 16-year-old student murmured, "Yes," to which all of the children laughed.
Michael Gaucher said, "There you have it" and stated something to the effect
that the debate has ended.
Use a condom? It’s your decision, really.
One often hears that there is an aggressive HIV/AIDS prevention campaign,
but the session ran 55 minutes before the first mention of "protection"
and safer sex came. In the context of the "safer sex" discussion, however,
it was pointed out that these children could make an "informed decision"
not to use a condom. Outside in the conference hall, the children could
easily obtain as many condoms, vaginal condoms and other contraceptive
devices as they wished from various organizations which distribute such.
Well, yes…it really is about sex!
Another popular session was presented by the same three public employees
in their professional capacity and was called, "Putting the ‘Sex’ Back
Into Sexual Orientation: Classroom Strategies for Health & Sexuality
The workshop included:
What does it mean to say "being gay, lesbian and bisexual isn’t about
sex?…How can we deny that sexuality is central for all of us? How
do we learn to address the unique concerns of queer youth?…This workshop
is for educators to examine strategies for integrating sexuality education
and HIV prevention content specific to gay, lesbian and bisexual students
into the classroom and GSA’s….additional strategies will be discussed."
The three presenters now assumed the task of teaching teachers how to
facilitate discussions about "queer sex" with their students.
Tired of denying it
Margot Abels opened by telling the room full of teachers (and two high
school students), "We always feel like we are fighting against people who
deny publicly, who say privately, that being queer is not at all about
sex… We believe otherwise. We think that sex is central to every single
one of us and particularly queer youth."
Margot Abels, Julie Netherland and Michael Gaucher reviewed a few "campaigns"
that have been used to demonstrate to queer youth how to best "be safe"
while still enjoying homosexual sex.
The campaign, "Respect yourself, protect yourself," was thought to be
good in getting the message to kids that they should use protection, but
since it made children who didn’t protect themselves feel bad, it ultimately
was a poor message. Michael Gaucher pointed out that children "with an
older partner that they are not feeling they can discuss things with, does
that mean that they don’t respect themselves?"
The campaign, "No sex, no problem," was ridiculed, as the campaign assumed
that children could opt not to have sex. Additionally, the campaign made
those children who had already had sex feel bad or think they had a problem,
since they had had sex.
After reviewing a few of the campaigns, Margot Abels described the project
she works on. The "Gay/Straight Alliance HIV Education Project" goes to
five different schools each year conducting up to eight "HIV prevention
sessions" in that school’s gay club. These same presenters who just told
a group of children how to properly position their hands for "fisting"
were now telling a room full of educators that they would visit their schools
and conduct the same workshops for their students.
Bringing homosexuality into the middle school
One participant remarked half-way through that Margot Abels just wasn’t
"talking to" her, since she, the participant, was a lesbian, middle school
teacher. She wanted to know specifically what she could do to facilitate
discussions about homosexuality in middle school. This was solved in another
session entitled, "Struggles & Triumphs of Including Homosexuality
in a Middle School Curriculum." Christine L. Hoyle, Special Education
Teacher and workshop presenter, told the story of how she turned the holocaust
portion of her curriculum into a gay affirming section. Ms. Hoyle allowed
the group at the conference to watch a video which she had her students
produce and which was narrated by a seventh grade girl. This girl told
the audience that ancient Greeks "encouraged homosexuals; in fact, it was
considered normal for an adolescent boy to have an older, wiser man as
his lover." Thus, this teacher informed her adolescent students that it
is okay if an older man approaches them for sexual gratification.
Finally, the handouts
An enormous amount of very disturbing material, most of it aimed at
children, was distributed at the conference. Much of it encourages young
children to become actively engaged in homosexual activities. The Sidney
Borum Community Health Center table was giving out a cassette sized "pocket
sex" kit, which included two condoms, two antiseptic "moist" towelettes,
and six bandages, which were for "when the sex got really rough" according
to the high school volunteer behind the desk. There was a countless supply
of condoms supplied by both Sidney Borum and Planned Parenthood, all of
which were for the taking by any child who wanted them. One could
see children as young as 12 or 13 at the conference participating and receiving
"information" and materials.
It shocked this reporter.
For the reporter and the music teacher, this "conference" was a shock
that words can barely describe. One wonders whether it was similar to the
experiences of American GIs when they first approached the concentration
camps. They had heard stories and rumors, but no one could imagine it was
like this. It was a mind-numbing experience.
But most shocking of all was that none of the adults seemed to be bothered
by any of it. In fact, there was an eerie sense of solidarity in
the air, against "those bigots, those homophobes who would stop our progress."
After our paper was delivered to 250,000 homes across the Commonwealth
and after our Internet site carried the news around the country, many citizens
expressed their shock and anger. When talk show host, Jeanine Graf of 96.9FM,
spent three hours every evening for two weeks on the issue, many more expressed
their outrage. When all of this pressure hit, the Dept. of Education terminated
the two employees and apologized to the state. But the homosexual activists
did not want copies of this tape to be heard by the public. So they went
to a judge in secret the night before a rally of parents was to be held
and asked him to issue an emergency order stopping anyone from talking
about the scandal or distributing a tape recording of what had happened.
The unconstitutional order that was issued shocked the entire nation, but
The following stories were on the daily Internet site of
|After receiving terrible publicity from across the country, Judge van
Gestel removed the press from his unconstitutional Order, but he did not
remove Brian Camenker or Scott Whiteman. This is an editorial that was
written by Massachusetts News.
Judge van Gestel Please
Read the Constitution
Judge van Gestel said yesterday that he saw the editorial in the Boston
Herald on Tuesday which questioned whether he’s read the Constitution lately.
Although the judge assured everyone that he has read the Constitution,
it isn’t only the Herald that is wondering.
The judge told lawyers for FOX News that if they didn’t like the wiretap
law, they had to go back to the state legislature. He said the language
of the law was very broad and could be understood to include the press.
"That is the law they gave me to uphold."
What a Dumb Statement!
That is not the law they gave him to uphold. It is only because of
how he has interpreted the law that makes it facially unconstitutional.
There are two elements that he must decide. 1) Did the law forbid what
Scott Whiteman did? 2) If the law does forbid it, is the law permissible
under the First Amendment?
#1 Does Law Prohibit Scott Whiteman from Taping?
As to issue #1, it is not at all clear that the legislature intended
to stop Whiteman from taping this public Conference. It is very clear in
the Preamble that the law was enacted primarily to protect the public against
organized crime and to allow the police to wiretap their conversations.
At the same time, the legislature was not opening the door to unlimited
wiretapping by anyone.
The lawmakers said they were concerned about the "uncontrolled development
and unrestricted use" of "modern electronic surveillance devices." (This
hardly sounds like a pocket tape recorder.)
Clearly, this law does not stop anyone from taping a public meeting
such as a town meeting, a school board meeting or similar event. But a
judge could look at the explicit words of the law and say that it does
prohibit taping those events if the judge doesn’t have any common sense.
And one of the first things most people learn in law school is that a judge
has to construe a law so that it will not be unconstitutional if it is
possible for him to do so.
But Judge van Gestel is construing the law in defiance of common sense
and with a determination to make it unconstitutional. He told FOX News,
"That is the law they gave me to uphold." But that is not true. He is totally
misconstruing what they gave him.
There have been very few court opinions on this particular law, but
the few that we have indicate that what Whiteman did was not unlawful.
But Judge van Gestel did not encourage any discussion from the attorneys
before making his decision. Very few judges are so authoritarian as to
enter a Restraining Order like this before any trial has been held without
meticulously discussing the law and the facts of the case with the attorneys.
#2 If Law Does Forbid Whiteman, Is It Unconstitutional?
If the judge is correct that this law does prohibit what Scott Whiteman
did, it is clearly unconstitutional.
This was a public meeting where everyone had been invited to hear public
employees instruct teachers and students. Even the judge agrees that Whiteman
had a right to be at the meeting and to report what was said. The only
problem is that no one believed what he told them. He (and many other parents)
had been rebuffed time and time again by state and local employees.
It was necessary that he report this information totally and accurately.
The judge agrees Whiteman could have gone to shorthand class and then transcribed
the session and no one could complain. He could have hired a court stenographer
and no one would have complained. But neither of those would have been
as accurate as a tape recording.
Judge’s 17-Year-Old Daughter
This judge was a member of a silk-stocking law firm for 35 years before
becoming a judge and obviously has very little contact with the real world.
He said at the hearing that he has a 17-year-old old daughter and,
"I feel very strongly about someone secretly taping my daughter and selling
it on the State House steps."
He obviously has no idea what went on that meeting. Perhaps he should
listen to the tape before he rules on it. Wouldn’t that be a sensible idea?
This was criminal conduct by public employees who were corrupting the morals
of children by promoting dangerous and harmful practices to their bodies.
This was not instruction about AIDS prevention. The practices of fisting,
oral sex and many others that were promoted would cause disease, not prevent
it. And it does not bother this judge that other people’s 12-year-olds
are being subjected to this without their knowledge or consent? In addition,
the tape has been altered so that no voices are recognizable.
Is the judge really so naïve that he would believe Camenker and
Whiteman are making money from this? What a stupid idea!! These people
are parents who are making a tremendous sacrifice to alert other parents
including Alan van Gestel, parent as to what is happening in
the schools of Massachusetts.
He doesn’t have the common sense to believe them even with the tape.
We’re lucky that most parents are smarter than he.
Why Didn’t Boston Media Complain?
It’s strange that the Boston media did not complain about this serious
abridgement of their First Amendment rights. Many people across the country
are worried about this historic infringement upon the rights of the press.
And yet the media in Boston were strangely silent.
One possibility or explanation that anyone must consider is that they
knew the judge was going to rule in their favor and lift the ban. Their
reporters certainly have contacts and friends all across the city, including
the courthouse. And they have lawyers who are probably friends with this
If they did know in advance, it would certainly explain their lack
|Even the state Senate was forbidden by Judge van Gestel from
discussing what had happened at the sex conference, one of the most
bizarre occurrences in the Constitutional history of our country. Yet,
almost no one in the state knows it occurred.
Judge Forbad Debate by State
As a Result, Senate Refused to Cut Gay Funding During Yet Another Nighttime
While an Emergency Restraining Order was in effect, which prohibited
anyone from discussing the graphic sexual instruction given to school children
by Department of Education employees at a Conference in March, the state
Senate refused on Monday night to discontinue the funding of homosexual
programs in the state’s schools.
The entire legislature was sent an email by Rep. Jarrett T. Barios (D-Cambridge),
an open homosexual, warning them that they could not mention anything that
had occurred at the March Conference that has led to the firing of two
The Senate session was labeled an "emergency."
The judge who issued the Order last week was scheduled to consider lifting
the Order yesterday, the day after the emergency Senate action.
The radio talk show host who had alerted the state to the problem was
scheduled to go on the air at 7 p.m. on Monday to warn the state that the
Senate was moving to consider this matter. Therefore, the Senate called
an emergency and passed the measure shortly before the time when Jeanine
Graf was scheduled to begin broadcasting at 96.9FM.
Press Does Not Report It
Even though Attys. Alan Dershowitz, Harvey Silverglate and many other
lawyers denounced the court’s attempt to muzzle the legislature, neither
the Boston Globe nor the Boston Herald reported anything about the unusual
and historic, unconstitutional event.
The Globe reported on Tuesday that, "The state Senate yesterday rebuffed
an effort to slash funding for gay and lesbian teen suicide programs…"
It said the action came on the first day of debate on the Senate’s debate
on the budget.
But it did not report that the Senate had been unconstitutionally gagged
by a state judge from debating the subject.
The Globe wrote that Sen. Edward J. Clancy Jr. (D-Lynn) wanted to cut
the item from $1.5 million to $1 million but was satisfied when the money
was specified for suicide prevention and not for sex education.
But Brian Camenker, President of the Parents Rights Coalition, which
has been spearheading the parents’ outrage over the scandal, said, "This
is a lie. The same funding remains. There was no ‘gay sex education’ money
to start with. All of it that was used to pay for the March 25 Conference
was so-called ‘suicide prevention money.’ This won’t change a thing."
Camenker also noted that it was a lie that the Conference was not funded
by the state. "Through various sources, it was almost entirely state funded,"
The Boston Herald noted that the Senate had banned the use of money
in sex education workshops but it did not report anything about the ban
on debate that the court had imposed.
Sen. Stanley C. Rosenberg (D-Amherst) also expressed concern during
the debate, according to the Herald. "The inappropriate use and abuse of
the program cried out for some recognition and articulation," he said.
But the measure apparently passed unanimously.
Judge Gags Everyone
The gag Order was imposed in secret by Judge Allan van Gestel on Wednesday
afternoon at the request of lawyers for one of the Department of Education
employees, Julie Netherland, who had been fired because of what she did
at the Conference. She told the judge that she was instructing the children
in prevention of HIV/AIDS.
"She told the judge a lie. She was not instructing the children in preventing
disease," said Camenker. "All of the sexual instruction she gave in ‘fisting’
and other kinky sex is terribly dangerous to their health in many ways,
Netherland also told the judge that, "The distribution of this tape
recording would cause irreparable harm to me as an HIV/AIDS educator regardless
of where I work." To which Camenker responded, "She should have considered
that before she dumped on those innocent children."
The other person who requested the Order was a high school junior from
Watertown who was concerned that her voice might be recognized on the tape.
But Camenker explained that all voices had already been altered and
could not be recognized. "I really am perplexed how these people can tell
us they are concerned about the privacy of the children and reveal this
girl who was at the Conference," he said.
|One of the most striking aspects of the scandal was the way the
Boston Globe misinformed the public about what was happening. It is a classic
case of how that newspaper uses its power to push its own agenda. We demonstrated
that in this story.
Boston Globe Misleads About
Although Judge Allan van Gestel has overturned the draconian Order which
gagged everyone from talking about the sex scandal which caused the firing
of two state workers this month, this wasn’t even mentioned in the article
that appeared in Friday’s Boston Globe.
The judge had been under severe attack from all across the country for
his violation of the First Amendment. Some of the severest criticism came
from liberal lawyers Alan Dershowitz and Harvey Silverglate; FOX News dispatched
a lawyer to the hearing. But the Globe never mentioned any of that. It
printed a headline, "Ruling halts parents group on workshop tape."
The Globe’s first paragraph was, "A Superior Court judge yesterday barred
a group of parents from disseminating secret tape recordings of Department
of Education workers having a graphic sexual dialogue with teenagers at
a recent workshop."
But the judge dropped everyone from the Order except for the parents
who made the tape. The Globe was incorrect when it said that the judge
barred the parents in his Friday ruling. He merely continued his old Order
against them. But all of the media are now free to distribute tapes to
anyone they wish.
The judge had warned the homosexual plaintiffs during oral argument,
that if he dropped the Order against the media as they requested, it wouldn’t
be a victory for them. It would mean that the audiotapes of the March 25
sex Conference would be open to everyone. But he followed their request.
Moreover, the judge did allow the parents more latitude in that, in
contrast to his previous Order, they can discuss any part of the sessions
that they can remember without referring to the tape.
But the Globe did not report it that way. It reported it as a victory
for the homosexual group which sponsored the Conference.
Judge van Gestel sits as a Superior Court judge in Suffolk County.
|The Boston Globe mounted an intensive attack on the parents. It was
not concerned about the teaching of explicit homosexual sex to children.
On just one day, June 2, it printed two stories side-by-side on the front
page of the Metro section. We responded on our website with the following.
Globe Reporters Are Ignorant
Will someone please tell the Boston Globe that no one has decided whether
the audiotapes that were recorded by parents were in violation of wiretap laws?
Despite this, the Globe continues to tell everyone that the judge has
already held that the parents violated the law.
The Globe did it again on Friday, when it reported, "A state Superior
Court judge has since barred the group from distributing the tapes,
ruling at the request of a gay advocate that they were made in violation
of wiretap laws."
It is obvious that the Globe desperately wants the judge to hold that
way, but they should report the truth. The judge has not made any decision
in the matter.
Explain It to the Globe
What has happened is this.
Homosexual lawyers went to the judge in secret, just before the parents
held a big rally at the State House. Because the judge believed the homosexual
lawyers, he issued a draconian, unconstitutional order which gagged the
entire world from discussing anything about the scandal and learning
what the homosexuals had taught the children.
This attack by a judge upon the U.S. Constitution shocked the entire
country. Fox News sent lawyers to protest. Even Boston’s liberal lawyers
Alan Dershowitz and Harvey Silverglate expressed their shock and dismay.
Incredibly, even the state legislature was told that it could not discuss
the issue when it debated funding of $1.5 million for homosexual groups
to use in our schools last week.
When he realized how wrong he had been, the judge, Allan van Gestel,
was in a very embarrassing situation. He had made a ruling that made him
a laughing stock across the country. He couldn’t reverse himself without
looking even more foolish. So he removed his gag order on anyone who was
powerful, particularly the press. The only ones that he continued
to bar were the two parents who were responsible for the taping. After
all, they don’t have much money and the judge didn’t look as foolish if
he continued the order against them.
He had a welcome ally in the Globe which has continued to misrepresent
But Didn’t Parents Violate the Law?
The judge has not yet ruled whether the wiretapping law was broken.
He does not have the power to do so. That will be decided at a trial by
jury. (We still have trials in Massachusetts.)
All the judge has done is to decide that the plaintiffs have a possibility
of winning the case. But he cannot make a decision without a trial. Even
he agrees he was wrong in the first Order that he made. Who knows what
he will decide after he has had time to research the matter.
(He has yet to ask the defendants’ attorneys what they think about the
law. This is very unusual procedure because all judges except for Judge
van Gestel would do much more research into the matter before issuing Orders
such as this which restrain the civil liberties of these parents so drastically.)
Editor Says Boston Globe ‘Lacks Talent’
This is another example of what Metro Editor Peter Canellos wrote in
a memo to senior management last year when he said that the majority of
his reporters at the Globe lack talent and can’t even be edited.
"The major obstacle, as with many priorities in Metro," he wrote, "is
the lack of talent on the staff. Most of the Metro staff perhaps
three-quarters is not capable of writing a marquee Sunday piece.
Most of the editors aren’t capable of editing them…"
Canellos could start by seeing that his people cover this story accurately.
|The new editor of the Editorial Page at the Boston Globe got into trouble
almost immediately, by making people question her morals and wondering
where she grew up.

She, Renee Loth, published a childish editorial last Saturday about
the Department of Education scandal and the meeting held at Tufts University
on March 25 where graphic homosexual sex was to taught to students.
She denied that the session could lure children into homosexual sexual
activity. But in the next sentence, she said, "To judge from the questions,
most were already sexually active." But if "most" had already been corrupted
by previous sessions, that means there must have been some who had not.
And, in fact, some students were obviously not yet into this behavior
because they asked why anyone would want to do some of those foolish things.
How many students were hearing this dangerous instruction for the first
time? It could have been one, three or ten students. We don’t know and
she doesn’t either. But she agrees there were some.
But she really gave away her background when she said, "They [the teenagers]
were asking the sorts of things teenagers ask every day…"
These questions are asked by students every day!?
Where did she grow up? Who did she ask about "fisting" as a child? Or
"do lesbians rub their clits together," "should you spit after you suck
another boy or man," "whether oral sex was better with tongue rings," etc.
Regardless of where she has lived in the past and whom she has associated
with, she is happy that the children get accurate information instead of
"inaccurate or dangerous answers from their peers." This information that
was presented by Department of Education was about as dangerous as it can
As a person who has been many places in a long lifetime and seen many
things, I’d much rather put my trust in the "inaccurate and dangerous answers"
from my peers than I would from these dirty, old people from the state.

on nuclear weapons or whether we should continue to occupy the Balkans,
remember who is writing them.

claiming of the term ‘pro-life’ allowed those who opposed abortion on demand
to frame the issue to their advantage, to make sure that we do not allow
ourselves to be painted into a corner before the debate even begins.
"In Massachusetts the effective reframing of this issue was the key
to the success of the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth. We
immediately seized upon the opponent’s calling card safety
and explained how homophobia represents a threat to students’ safety by
creating a climate where violence, name-calling, health problems, and suicide
are common. Titling our report "Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian
Youth," we automatically threw our opponents onto the defensive and stole
their best line of attack. This framing short-circuited their arguments
and left them back-pedaling from day one.
"Finding the effective frame for your community is the key to victory.
It must be linked to universal values that everyone in the community has
"In Massachusetts, no one could speak up against our frame and say,
‘Why, yes, I do think students should kill themselves’: this allowed us
to set the terms for the debate.
"In Massachusetts, we made creating an environment where youth could
speak out our number one priority. We know that, confronted with real-live
stories of youth who had suffered from homophobia, our opponents would
have to attack people who had been victimized once, which put them in a
bully position from which it would be hard to emerge looking good. More
importantly, we made sure these youth met with elected officials so that,
the next time these officials had to vote on something, there would be
a specific face and story attached to the issue. We wanted them to have
an actual kid in mind when they had to cast their votes. We won the vote
in the Senate 33-7 as a result."
"It’s a ‘statistic’ that’s been repeated innumerable times: A gay teenager
is some three times more likely to commit suicide."
That was the first paragraph in an article in the Boston Herald in 1997
by the Newhouse News Service. It pointed out that nearly ten years after
the original publication of the widely discredited statistic by Paul Gibson,
a social worker in Chicago, the figures were still being used even though
many organizations had stated that there is no evidence that they are true.
Those organizations include The Center for Disease Control, The National
Institute of Mental Health, the American Association of Suicidology, the
American Psychological Association, and some gay advocacy groups.
Even Joyce Hunter, the one time president of the National Lesbian and
Gay Health Association, has said it is unknown if there is a connection
between homosexuality and teen suicide.
Peter Muehrer, chief of the Youth Mental Health program in the Prevention
and Behavioral Medicine Research branch of the National Institute of Mental
Health and recent winner of the Secretary of Health and Human Services
Award for Distinguished Service, has analyzed the original studies on which
the Gibson review was based and determined that the conclusions can not
be supported by the data.
He wrote, "There is no scientific evidence to support this data." Joyce
Hunter said she agrees with mental-health researchers that most gay and
lesbian teens, like teens overall, are emotionally resilient people who
"go on to develop a positive sense of self and go on with their lives."
Nevertheless, the scientifically baseless claim was the catalyst for
the creation of the Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth and the Gay/Straight
Alliances in the schools. William Weld claimed that this suicide figure
was a clear indication that our schools are unsafe for homosexual youth.
Since the creation of the Commission, schools have been encouraged to start
Gay Straight Alliances, again under the presumption that schools are currently
unsafe for homosexual students.
Approximately 5,000 teens commit suicide in a year. There is no evidence
to link those suicides to homosexuality.
Globe Reveals the ‘Truth’ About
She Might Be a Christian!
In the ultimate ‘hate piece,’ the Boston Globe revealed the truth yesterday about Jeanine Graf, talk
show host on 96.9FM: she is suspected of being a Christian.
Although it’s difficult to believe that the Globe really wrote those
bigoted remarks, you can check it in their print paper on page E8, June
1. The Globe wrote, "Already, protesters…are commenting on Graf’s background."
What is that dangerous background?
The Globe gave us the answer. "About ten years ago, she did in fact
work for a Christian station, Salem Broadcasting’s WEZE-AM (590) in North
The paper didn’t report whether it had confirmed that she actually
is a Christian. But it did express its concern that she might be. The article
was titled, "Graf must be accountable, too."
They also revealed that her reporting of the Children’s Sex Conference
Scandal was very successful and reached a lot of parents. They didn’t realize
they were telling how successful she was when they attacked her motive
as trying to boost her ratings. This drew a comment from the publisher
of Massachusetts News, J. Edward Pawlick, "They obviously thought that
parents and other people were very interested in this news and they are
troubled that she was getting high listenership."
Some of the other glitches in the very long article about Graf were
o It said the taping of the explicit sexual meeting by parents was
done "illegally." But there are many lawyers who would love to challenge
that statement. This is a very new law which was enacted to hamper organized
crime, not to harass parents who are taping school employees in a public
meeting to show what is being taught to children as young as 12-years-old.
o They never reported that many homosexuals called Graf and agreed that
the meeting should not have taken place.
o The goal of the meeting, according to the paper, was to "lower the
rate of teen depression and suicide." But the Globe never revealed how
explicit sexual instruction in "fisting," "oral sex" and other such topics
would prevent depression or suicide. In fact, many persons have pointed
out that such instruction will increase the incidence of AIDS and other
STDs and depression.
o According to the reporter for the Globe, she spent "a few nights"
listening to the Graf show and found a "disturbing" fact. She learned that
many listeners believe the purpose of the meeting was to encourage children
to experiment in homosexual sex. "It’s a specious idea that comes up repeatedly,"
said the Globe. It complained that "Graf does not contradict or correct
her callers." But the problem with the Globe’s comment is that anyone who
listens to the tapes or reads the transcripts can quickly see that the
purpose of the meeting was to encourage the children to try the sex. Nevertheless,
the Globe went on to attack Graf saying, "It’s an idea rife with homophobia
that can be used to rationalize all kinds of bigotry, including violence.
Although Graf won’t speak for her callers, she says she is not homophobic."
It’s a standard Globe practice, said Pawlick. "They set you up with a terrible
accusation and then ask you to deny it. No matter what you say they have
already covered you with their slime."
o There’s a serious problem with how they closed the article. The Globe
never gave one example of "hate" or "fables" on her show and yet the following
was printed by them: "Whether or not she agrees with the callers who go
on air with hate-filled rhetoric or homophobic fables passed off as fact,
she ought to take responsibility for what her listeners hear. To let lies
go uncorrected is to be complicit in the bigotry they spread, which damages
rather than promotes her legitimate discussion about the rights of parents.
She’s the adult here. She should recognize the implications of context
as well as content."
|The Boston Globe mounted a full-scale attack against parents by defending
the role of militant homosexual activists. The newspaper published three
major stories in one day. This is about one of them.
Globe Attacks Parents On Sex
Sen. Cheryl Jacques ‘Outs’ Herself As Lesbian
Sen. Cheryl Jacques "outed" herself as a lesbian yesterday in a Globe
opinion piece she wrote with the headline, "No retreat from programs that
protect gay teenagers."
She was writing in response to the scandal about Fistgate, which resulted
in the firing of two state employees and has caused many to question the
$1.5 million that is given each year by the state to homosexual activists
to organize the schools of the state.
Jacques concentrated on the old canard that 32.8% of homosexual students
in 1999 said that they had attempted suicide. But this was an answer to
a questionnaire that was given to the students who knew exactly what their
homosexual advisors wanted them to say.
A more important question is how many suicides took place of homosexual
students in 1999?
Even more important, how does a knowledge of "fisting," oral sex and
similar activities which were taught at the Sex Conference stop a child
from committing suicide? These activities which were taught by our public
employees will increase the rate of unhappiness and suicide, not decrease
‘Religious Wrong’ Exposed
By Tom Duggan
A workshop about "The Religious Wrong" was conducted by gay activist
Leif Mitchell at "Fistgate," where state teachers taught graphic sex to
teenagers and teachers from across Massachusetts.
Mitchell is the Community Educator/Trainer for Planned Parenthood of
Connecticut and he is on the National board of GLSEN. He trains teachers
and children about sex education in the classroom and how to integrate
homosexuality into the curriculum of public schools.
Mitchell told the audience he follows the Religious Wrong "religiously"
and has been infiltrating religious groups for many years.
The program guide stated: "This workshop will explore ways to counteract
the messages used by the Wrong. Participants will learn exactly what the
Wrong is saying about ‘us’ (and who that includes) as well as develop strategies
to tackle opposition..."
After his brief introduction, Mitchell showed a video to the audience
containing hate speech against Christians and other people of faith. "The
video was very disturbing," one teacher told Massachusetts News. "They
showed various images and quotes from Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson to
give the impression that their views were shared by all religious adversaries.
It was an attack on all people of faith. Anyone who disagreed with Mr.
Mitchell was labeled a homophobe and compared to Robertson and Falwell.
Mr. Mitchell concluded after the video ‘This is who we are fighting! This
is the religious right!’"
The teacher said she thought the conference was supposed to be about
safe schools and stopping discrimination. "To think that David Driscoll
and the Department of Education would be preaching religious hatred to
students and teachers under the pretense of safe schools was frightening.
And they were using our tax dollars to endorse it. This was nothing more
than a government- sponsored attack on religion and anyone who disagrees
with the gay political agenda on the far left," she said.
At one point in the video they said ‘Studies show that lesbians are
the best mothers in America. Are you interested in the truth Pat (Robertson)?’
The teacher says she was shocked. "I have been teaching for over 25 years
and I’ve been studying these issues for over a decade. I have never seen
a study that lesbians make better mothers. I was traumatized by what I
was seeing. What was really appalling to me was that no teacher in the
room seemed to be bothered by what Mitchell and the video was saying. They
just took it all in and accepted it as fact."
Mitchell then asked the audience to break up into small discussion groups.
The teacher recounts: "We were told to discuss our experiences and strategies
on how to deal with religious opposition to gay activists in our communities.
It didn’t sound like tolerance to me. This sounded more like hate speech.
If I had spoken of any of the things that they directed at traditional
religion, only said them about homosexuals instead, I would be called a
hate monger and a homophobe. But when God-fearing people are labeled and
attacked, it is not only tolerated, our government sanctions it."
Mitchell said he considered himself a "spiritual person but not religious"
and labeled religious followers as "those people." A teacher in the audience
asked Mr. Mitchell if he couldn’t make an argument for free speech on the
other side, for the religious people who feel differently. Mitchell became
very adamant and didn’t even let him finish his question. ‘There is no
argument." Mitchell charged. "We are right and they are wrong." The teacher
responded that he "didn’t think we were going to get very far with that
kind of reasoning."
Mitchell then turned to the audience and explained the need to combat
such questions by using safety and suicide prevention issues as their mantra.
Several times during the discussions Mitchell told the participants when
they get in trouble during such discussion with the public or the press
to: "Just keep bringing it back to safety in the schools. That’s the message."
Comparing ‘The Religious Wrong’ to Hitler!
Mitchell then talked about a website www.wiredstrategies.com/Hitler
which compares religious people to Hitler and the Nazis. The website contains
headlines such as:
"Nazi Anti-Jewish Speech vs. Religious Right Anti-Gay Speech: Are They
Similar?" The site shows a side-by-side comparison of Nazi propaganda
against Jews during WWII with the "Christian anti-gay movement" of today
"...are fundamentalist Christians using anti-gay arguments that echo
back to the Nazi era?" This page compares quotes from The Eternal Jew with
Christian conservatives’ modern-day quotes about gay Americans.
Mitchell spoke of religious people, hatred, homophobia, religion and
the religious wrong as though each word were synonymous, interchanging
religion and the Religious Wrong with Hitler, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell
and even the murder of Matthew Sheppard.
Strategies to "Combat the Religious Wrong"
Mitchell outlined his strategies on combating the Religious Wrong "in
1) Focus on Violence Prevention. Always go back to the issues of safety
to explain why Gay/Straight Alliances need to be formed. "Violence helps
us!" he said.
He said violence in the schools helps because that means there is more
of a need for safety education. One teacher said, "That means they get
to have more of these seminars, more money from the government and more
government sponsored political activism. Just imagine having a workshop
to combat violence and then telling young children to be activists and
concluding with, ‘Violence helps us.’"
2) Focus on Legal Perspectives, He used the 1996 lawsuit which was settled
for $900,000. The suit was about Jamie Dboznia who was not protected from
gay bashing by his school. "Focusing on legal perspectives also helps to
bring the focus back to safe schools," he said.
3) Put a Face on Homophobia. "Matthew Sheppard is a good example,"
Mitchell said. "But he is not the most diverse person you can use. He only
got all that the publicity because he was white."
4) Use Statistics Effectively. "Just the Facts was sent to all Superintendents
in the country," Mitchell said. "Now the opposition has a response, ‘Just
the Facts on Just the Facts,’ but they have no credible organizations or
data to support them in this, unlike the original which came from the Center
for Disease Control and the Youth Risk Survey."
5) Build Coalitions Proactively with Like-minded Groups. "Be prepared
and come together," he said. "Use the Coalition for Democracy, use the
NAACP, The Anti-Defamation League and Planned Parenthood."
"Remember," Mitchell told the audience, "It is very important to tie
the Religious Right to hatred."
Jennings Also Attacked Religion
The keynote speaker, Kevin Jennings, co-founder of GLSEN, also attacked
religion and even used the Gospel to do so. He used the story of the widow’s
mite to motivate children in the audience to give all they can give to
the gay and lesbian community.
"This is ridiculous," exclaimed one teacher in utter disbelief. "I know
that Bible passage and it is a direct reference to giving all you can to
God. How ironic that GLSEN is preaching hatred towards religious people,
attacking religion as ‘wrong’ and at the same time they are quoting Jesus
and twisting the scripture. Why doesn’t David Driscoll know what he is
promoting? If he really doesn’t know what is happening at these workshops
maybe we need a Commissioner who will pay more attention to what’s going
A handout attacked religion and people of faith. It promoted a book
by a lesbian activist who claimed to expose "The Right and THEIR Agenda;
The Right’s overall goals, the targets of their organizing efforts, the
strategies they employ, and who benefits from their agenda."
Another publication which was handed out included an article entitled:
"Teaching Outside the Curriculum: Guerrilla Sex Education and the Public
Schools" from the Radical Teacher, which listed its sponsor as "The Coalition
for Positive Sexuality," which promotes the idea, "Just Say Yes." The article
stated emphatically :
"We hope that students do get ideas from our booklet - ideas about how
to talk about sex as well as how to do it, how to get pleasure with their
bodies as well as how to take care of them."
The Minuteman Library Network, which is composed of 34 suburban towns
from Cambridge and Brookline out to Holliston and Medway, recommends to
students that the best Internet site to learn about sexuality is "The Coalition
for Positive Sexuality" which tells them to, "Just Say Yes" to sexual intercourse.
Former Homosexual Was Personally
By Ed Oliver
A nationally known author and former homosexual, John Paulk, was personally
attacked by Leif Mitchell.
Paulk and his formerly lesbian wife were characterized as probably "unhappy
people" because they abandoned homosexuality and are now married with children.
Mitchell said that the Paulks were born homosexual. He explained to
his class that the Paulks have chosen to identify with the heterosexual
community and now their sexual behavior reflects that. But they are probably
not happy people because of it.
Reached for comment, Mitchell confirmed for Massachusetts News that
he made those statements about the Paulk family. When asked if he’d ever
met or spoken to Paulk, he said he never had.
Paulk told Massachusetts News, "I think the comments that Mr. Mitchell
made reveal the ignorance that members of Planned Parenthood and GLSEN
have about persons such as myself and tens of thousands of other men and
women across the country who’ve made the very difficult decision to walk
away from homosexuality.
"It’s very typical of individuals such as him to claim to know who we
are or what we’re all about, when they’ve never met us or even spoken to
us. To say that we’re not happy fulfilled people is completely false."
Mitchell presented at the workshop what he called his "Sexuality-Ed
101" course. He said there are three factors to sexuality:
o Orientation. Your true feelings which cannot change.
o Sexual Identity. The sexual group you choose to identify with. (This
can change, but orientation cannot.)
o Sexual Behavior. What someone actually practices.
Mitchell said that when all three factors line up, you are a happy
person. But in the case of someone like the Paulks who, Mitchell said,
were born homosexuals, those three factors don’t line up and they are probably
not happy people.
One teacher who attended that course said she was appalled that Mitchell
presented as fact his theories about human sexuality. "I sat there asking
myself, where is his research and where is his data? Has he even spoken
to John and Anne Paulk? He presented as fact that people are born homosexual.
He never stated that this was his theory.
"I felt like I was being trained to be a ‘change agent’ in the public
schools. If Leif Mitchell is lying about this, what else is he lying about?
That workshop was pure propaganda for Planned Parenthood and GLSEN."
Massachusetts News asked Mitchell if he presented the lesson about the
three sexuality factors, if he believes people are born homosexual, and
does he have research to back it up. Mitchell acknowledged he gave the
lesson about the three factors. He said research is available that could
be used to prove either side of the question about being born homosexual.
He did not know of any specific studies when asked what he used as the
factual basis of his workshop.
He said only that there are studies out there.
Paulk commented on Mitchell’s theory about him. "To simply answer Mr.
Mitchell’s statement: when I was homosexual, I was unhappy. My orientation,
identity and behavior did not line up when I was in a homosexual lifestyle.
Now those three do line up. That’s why I am more than just happy, I am
fulfilled to the soul. I’ve been married for eight years to a beautiful
wife. I have two sons and a joy that I never had before in my promiscuous
Asked to comment on Mitchell’s theory about being born with a specific
orientation that cannot be changed, Paulk said that is where science is
in our favor. "Believe it or not, in the last 10 years studies that attempted
to prove a genetic cause of homosexuality have failed miserably. Often
times, even the liberal press says there is significant evidence to the
contrary. The evidence shows there is no proof that homosexuality is genetic.
But Mitchell and others within GLSEN and the pro-gay organizations still
trump up as fact that homosexuality is genetic. If it is something that
is genetic, then it cannot be changed, like skin color. We are here to
say it can be changed. It’s not genetic and there is no evidence to prove
that it is."
Because he is a former homosexual activist, Massachusetts News asked
Paulk if he had any insights into the homosexual agenda aimed at schoolchildren.
He said GLSEN’s specific agenda is to normalize homosexuality to children,
as young as kindergarten through grade 12, and to put homosexuality on
an equal level with heterosexuality. He added that GLSEN is accomplishing
this by establishing gay/straight alliance clubs in the schools.
Fifteen minutes into the conversation Massachusetts News had with Leif
Mitchell about the "Religious Wrong" workshop, Mitchell became nervous
about the increasingly detailed questions which we were asking. His answers
became more evasive until he said, after the fact, he does not give his
permission to use anything he said. He said Massachusetts News could arrange
another interview with him at a later time. After an attempt to do so,
Mitchell wrote in an e-mail that Jim Anderson, the Director of Communications
for GLSEN, is handling all interviews about the GLSEN Boston Teach Out.
Featured on National Media
The Paulks have been featured in major television and print media,
including the cover of Newsweek, and named among the 100 most influential
people in the United States on the topic of homosexuality. They have authored
two books titled, Not Afraid To Change, and Love Won Out.
John Paulk leads seminars around the country for Focus on the Family
that is the antithesis of the publicly endorsed GLSEN workshops. He informs
educators, pastors and other leaders how to offer an alternative to homosexuality
for teens. Paulk hopes to come to Boston next spring to present an all-day
conference to educate people about the homosexual agenda. He is searching
for a church in Boston willing to host him that can seat about a thousand
people. "We really want parents there because we want to tell them what
GLSEN and other organizations are attempting to teach their children,"
Paulk is also the Chairman of the Board of Exodus International, the
nation’s oldest organization aimed at helping men and women overcome homosexuality.
The public school teachers who attended the Conference earned six "professional
development points" for attending the all-day, homosexual GLSEN conference.
Lesbian Senator Glorified for
The day after the Globe printed an opinion piece by state Senator Cheryl
Jacques in which she "outed" herself while defending the funding of homosexual
activists in the schools, the newspaper followed up with a large "puff"
story and picture about her on the front page of the Metro section.
It said, "She cares about protecting a school support program for gay
and lesbian teens…"
The newspaper continued, "Jacques considered the program a critical
suicide prevention tool, and found herself on the forefront of the Senate
debate, brokering deals with opponents and defending the funding in an
impassioned speech on the Senate floor. It worked…"
Although the Globe has printed numerous pieces attacking the parents,
they have yet to write a story from the parents’ point of view. In this
story about Jacques, Brian Camenker, one of the parents, was brought into
the middle of the story in order to bring "diversity" to it. He received
only a few paragraphs and was surrounded with quotes against him and the
The Globe never asked, what were the "deals" that were "brokered" to
get other Senators to vote for this homosexual activism in our schools?
If Cheryl Jacques wishes to continue unusual and unhealthy sex practices,
she should do so, but how did this become a Constitutional right that should
be glorified in our major newspaper?
Globe Discovers Republican
With Lesbian Daughter
The Boston Globe is excited because it has found a Republican, former
state Senator William Saltonstall, 73, who has a lesbian daughter.
But this is not an exciting story it’s a sad one about two lonely,
Saltonstall and his wife have lost two of their four children. They
now have two children, both of whom live in Alaska. Their son is an "itinerant
doctor." A lesbian daughter, Abigail, has two children she has adopted.
The Saltonstalls are obviously alone now that their only two children
are in Alaska. They wish to have grandchildren. But they have none except
for Abigail’s adopted children. They have been "estranged" from their daughter,
and they are now trying to put the family back together. His wife says
it is a "work in progress."
The daughter urged Saltonstall last winter to write a letter to the
Globe. It took her a while to convince him. According to the Globe, "He
isn’t quite as comfortable talking about The Letter..."
When he finally did send a letter to the paper, it was posted prominently
on May 5 under a headline, "Why I Can’t Support GOP National Ticket."
It promptly drew praise from another letter writer and the paper decided
to write a major story about it yesterday.
It appears that Abigail’s partner has an adopted daughter who is 32
years old, who also has two young adopted children. So when the three women
come to visit the Saltonstalls, they bring four young children with them,
who are the only "grandchildren" that the Saltonstalls have.
His daughter believes it is her 10-year-old son, who she says is "on
fire" to end oppression and to defend his lesbian parents, who changed
her father. "I think my father’s love for his grandchildren has really
motivated him," she says. The young boy recently traveled to Washington
with his mother and her partner to march in the gay rights march.
It’s clear from reading the story that a desire and love for the grandchildren
is a big factor in the matter.
It’s sad that either the Saltonstalls have been misled as to what causes
homosexuality or they want to hide from the reality.
But the Globe is not sad about the tragedy. It is exuberant. After all,
it has promoted the homosexual activists and taken a swipe at George Bush
all in one blow and not on the Editorial pages.
The paper began this "feature story" with the following headline, which
is a statement from Saltonstall: "The GOP ‘takes the position that no gay
people should adopt….I regard this as a direct attack on my family.’"
They finished the "story" with the following editorial comment:
"There is one thing that Bill Saltonstall won’t discuss publicly, and
that’s who if anyone will get his vote in the 2000 presidential
election. But you can be sure it won’t be George W. Bush."
Health Problems Plague Homosexual
Community: Do Our Children Know?
Two health problems of homosexual men are acknowledged in the
recent issue of Bay Windows.
o Harvard University says that if homosexual men are screened for anal
cancer, it will save lives.
o The use of drugs in clubs is an epidemic. "The casual use of these
drugs has become so commonplace among gay club-goers that the Gay and Lesbian
Medical Society…recently felt compelled to declare the situation an epidemic,"
says the newspaper.
Are our children being taught these truths about the health problems
they will face in a homosexual lifestyle?
Or are they learning from activists some glorified stories about this
lifestyle such as fisting, oral sex and other sexual activities that were
taught to them at the
Children’s Sex Conference Scandal which resulted in the firing of two
employees at the Department of Education?
We should be telling them the truth.
