LGBT Crowd Eyes Preschool Children” by Deirdre Reilly. Once again we are portrayed as a threat to children and the headline hints at something more lurid. But it gets worse."There was once a time when it was unthinkable to even mention the topic of homosexuality in a school setting," said one pro-family activist.
A new web series called "Queer Kids Stuff" aimed at preschoolers (yes, you read that right) is now attempting to teach those barely out of diapers what the phrases "gay," "bisexual," and "transgender" mean.The correct title of the project is “Queer Kid Stuff”—not “Kids.” To be fair, Huffington Post makes the same error. Which leads me to suspect that is Ryan's source of information rather than the project itself. There one learns that the young creator has a masters degree in theater and performance studies from Queen Mary University of London. She is not an educator.
In the opening minutes of the first show, the host tells a teddy bear, as well as innocent viewers, that "gay means love."
Although no U.S. preschool programs have indicated yet that they will embrace the series, it may only be a matter of time.
"It is easily conceivable that videos such as these will be sanctioned eventually by local school boards and implemented in preschool and prekindergarten classes," said Sean Ryan, communications director of the pro-family organization Mass Resistance, based in Waltham, Massachusetts.
I don't know if this material is age appropriate or not. I lack the education and training to make that determination. Nevertheless, people with the erudition to make these determinations will make recommendations to school boards and pre-schools one way or the other. Teaching kids what gay means isn't going to turn them gay. I am at a loss to understand what the concern is. Don't look to this polemic to provide any expert opinions.
The piece continues:
"Activists are trying to force these topics on younger and younger children because that is the only way their movement wins," he said.There must be two gay activists somewhere who do all of this awful stuff and, apparently, they are attempting to “win” something. I have no idea what “queer theory” is or why it is capitalized. Suggesting that children are “targets” for gay people again perpetuates the mythology—the dog whistle implied by “the homosexual agenda.”
"Rational adults don't buy into the so-called 'Queer Theory' or transgenderism. Unfortunately, children are a soft target for homosexual activists as they are malleable and still learning about the world."
Deirdre Reilly writes:
Parents may not have the language to explain LGBT issues because they don't want it -- they have control, after all, over what gets discussed in the home. Ironically, preschoolers don't "have the language" to even share with their parents all that they learn in preschool.Ms. Reilly explicitly states that knowing about gay people compromises the innocence of children. And who is this idiotic parent. Is he or she judging “this” based on Mass Resistance, Fox, Huffington Post or the project? It is all rather murky.
Parents must be the protective figures who make sure what is presented to innocent, growing minds is what they decide is fit.
"Personally I am opposed to something like this," said one Massachusetts parent.
"It's no surprise the LGBT movement is attempting to impose its propaganda to school children at younger and younger ages," Ryan of Mass Resistance told LifeZette. "There was once a time when it was unthinkable to even mention the topic of homosexuality in a school setting. Now, there are homosexual, bisexual [and] transgender lesson plans for kids as young as kindergarten."So now what seems to be a well intentioned educational endeavor is “propaganda” directed at children.
"I don't think children of that age totally understand gender," Brandon Chapman of Reading, Massachusetts, told LifeZette. "Personally I would be opposed to something like this. Teaching general acceptance of people is great, but I think specifically talking about same-sex couples would be too confusing."Who is this person?
Ryan said today's parents naturally support the indoctrination of the young -- they themselves were indoctrinated, even if they don't realize it.It occurs to me that if anyone is interested in “indoctrination” it would be the whack jobs at Mass Resistance.
"Kids don't naturally buy into this stuff. They have to be brainwashed," he asserted. "We've seen this with the acceptance of homosexuality and homosexual marriage. Homosexuality is supported by a majority of adults aged 18-29, not because young adults just naturally support it -- but because they are the group that first began to be bombarded by this propaganda in the early 1990s."I assume that this ending quote is from the guy at Mass Resistance. I think, but cannot be sure, that his is asserting that sexual orientation … No, I don't know what he is claiming. Neither does Fox. The author of this piece is with Laura Ingraham's LifeZette.
