Breaking: Obama's "Safe Schools Czar" Is Promoting Child Porn in the Classroom– Kevin Jennings and the GLSEN Reading List

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.

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.

***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.

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:

Queer 13

Being Different

The Full Spectrum

Revolutionary Voices

Reflections of a Rock Lobster

Passages of Pride

Growing Up Gay/Growing Up Lesbian

The Order of the Poison Oak

In Your Face

Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son

Love & Sex: Ten Stories of Truth

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.

— Content Warning: —

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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Page 13

(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.

Queer 13 – Pages 43, 44 + 45

(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.


Queer 13 – Page 13

(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.


In Your Face – Page 150

(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.


Passages of Pride – Pages 33, 34 + 35

(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.


Queer 13 – Pages 86 + 87

(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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Pages 13 + 14

(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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Page 15

(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.


In Your Face – Page 141

(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?”

“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.”

On Diversity

(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.


Queer 13 – Pages 222 + 223

(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.


In Your Face – Page 136

(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.


Queer 13 – Page 17

(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.”

“What?”

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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Page 19

(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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Page 23

(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?”


In Your Face – Page 142

(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.


Revolutionary Voices – Page 155

(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?


The Full Spectrum – Pages 227 + 228

(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.


Queer 13 – Page 148

(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.


Being Different – Page 36

(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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Page 24

(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.


In Your Face – Page 126

(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.


Passages of Pride – Page 49

(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.


Revolutionary Voices – Pages 43 + 44

(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.


Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Pages 12 + 13

(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.


Queer 13 – Page 228

(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.

    Point made.

    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….

    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.

  • kate

    I can, with all confidence, say that’s pornography and IMHO not fit for adults let alone children.

  • NeoKong

    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.

  • Just_Saying

    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.
    .

  • Peter Warner

    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.

  • Just Brayin

    Yikes! I fail to see what this material has to do with tolerance regarding sexual orientation.

  • agree

    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..

    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.

    I live in daily gratitude that my daughter and her husband have sacrificed a second income in order to wholesomely homeschool my grandchildren.

    No. Leave the smut. Folks need to see it. Otherwise, it just reads like some puritanic conservative ranting about being shocked.

  • manateespirit

    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.

  • Larkin

    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.)

  • shibumi

    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.

  • DTOM3

    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……

  • marybel

    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.

    Jim,

    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!

  • The Elector of Saxony

    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.

    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.

  • down with dems

    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, 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.

    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.

    WTF?!

    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.

    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.

  • Andreas K.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

  • akw

    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.

    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.

    Squirrelgirl;

    “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!

    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).

    To all the morons calling this “child pornography” in this thread: if this is child porn, then Jim Hoft is guilty of disseminating child porn and you’re all guilty of viewing it. Hope you’re prepared for prison.

    Of course, this isn’t child pornography at all, because pornography is the visual depiction of sexual acts. The commonly-suggested problem with child pornography is that children are supposedly being harmed in its production, but these are simply books. What’s more, these are small excerpts from much larger books that are being unfairly judged by portions that have been taken out of context so that some especially unscrupulous, far-right wing types can use this supposed “scandal” as a bludgeoning tool against another employee of the Obama Administration. Kevin Jennings is not a villain here. There is room to reasonably disagree with the means his organization uses to effect its goals of increasing tolerance for different lifestyles in schools, but accusing him, and by extension the Obama Administration, of having bad intentions is unfair and incorrect.

    so the question still remains, what are you going to do about it? the state has determined to use your children in the most foul ways possible. are you going to allow it? the answer is yes, of course. people are afraid to stand up for themselves, let alone their own children. this is why child murders have increased more than 50 fold in just the last 10 years. johnnny now stands a better than even chance of winding up a sex toy to some old pervert than ever before, only this time the pervert is more than likely to be an authority figure, after all, the predators have realized that as long as they work for the state they can rape and sodomize your children at will, and there is not a damn thing you can do about it.

  • Tim

    Wow Gerry. Unfair. Incorrect.Unscrupulous. Bludgeoning. You do sound like you are open to discussion of the pornography Kevin Jennings would like to subject our children to. I have an idea. Why don’t you go read some of this to the children of Obama? It’s harmless Gerry. And since Obama hand picked Kevin and knows his background and beliefs Obama won’t mind. I’m sure he’ll believe your intentions are fine. And by the way- Obama is RESPONSIBLE for the persons he surrounds himself with and whom he puts in place to run our government. I know the left doesn’t like to look at Barry’s horrible choices in mentors and friends over the course of his adult life, but when it effects all of us it is the concern of all of us and OBAMA IS RESPONSIBLE.

    But that’s only following your painfully flawed logic. At the end of the day, nobody here is going to prison for excerpting these disgusting books and nobody is going to prison for being aware of the content of these horrible books.

  • Elly

    These books are pretty perverse and I’m pretty sure anyone with morals would tend to agree that they are not appropriate reading material, much less for young adults, and certainly not children.

    To Gerry #124 – how could paragraphs and pictures quoted directly from these books be taken out of context? It is what it is and reading the “whole” book (or books as is the case) won’t lessen the overt offensiveness of the sections highlighted.

    To the very few that have expressed these books as no big deal, I ask you this: Do you have children? Even if you don’t, I still ask you to define what’s sacred about childhood? What is sacred in your life?

    Anyone who supports this list of reading material for our schools has a big problem (read: morally vacant) and I for one am tired of having other people’s “problems” put on me and those I love. If you want to read smut, so be it, but don’t try to tell me my child should or anyone elses.

  • ConcernedParent

    This scourge has not only infected public schools but private as well. Administrations across the spectrum are staffed by “progressives” and conservatives are treated as clueless prudes. While most would never push sickening books such as these, many do promote “acceptance” of the gay/lesbian lifestyle in much more subtle ways under the guise of “intellectual” growth as early as middle school. Beware parents. Demand to see everything your kids are exposed to. SUNLIGHT is the best disinfectant.

  • This seemingly unconscionable violation of parental and public trust requires some context, for there may be some who might think Mr. Jennings is a fledgling pervert whose removal will provide palliative to those parents and children who have been wronged.

    The sexualization of children is an important aspect of cultural marxism. Georg Lukacs, minister of culture under the communist Bela Kun government in Hungary after World War I, made a concerted effort to sexualize Hungarian youth. It contributed directly to the repulsion of the majority Catholic country, which soon toppled the communist government. An American Thinker article entitled “Cultural Marxism” encapsulates Lukacs’ program:

    “In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary. He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary. Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated patriarchal family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow. Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools. Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority. …

    Hungary’s youth, having been fed a steady diet of values-neutral (atheism) and radical sex education while simultaneously encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths.

    Gramsci’s prescription [above] and Lukacs’ plans were the precursor to what Cultural Marxism in the guise of SIECUS, GSLEN [sic – it is GLSEN or the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network], and the ACLU–acting as judicially-powered enforcers–later brought into American schools.”

    The American Thinker article quoted above does an excellent job of providing context for such cultural monstrosities as the Kevin Jennings story now breaking . The point of citing and quoting from the article is to show, yet again, that such perverts and freaks as Jennings appearing in the Obama administration is not a fluke; just like Obama buddying up to William Ayers, terrorist and author of the communist manifesto Prairie Fire is not a fluke; just like his association with communist and criminal green jobs czar Van Jones, who is still indirectly consulting the White House, is not a fluke; just like his appointment of the card-carrying communist Carol Browner, who is still ignoring climategate, is not a fluke; just like his appointment of eugenicist and one-world government eco-creepazoid John Holdren, who was named in the climategate emails, is not a fluke; etc. The point is, that there is an entire program at work here, the cultural marxist program, and the public keeps getting barraged with outrages. The public will focus on one outrage, Obama will remove a figurehead, or do something equally outrageous, and the beat goes on.

    But if the Obama government thinks that the heat is on now – well, the public outrage is just getting warmed up. The only thing we have to wonder about at this point is if the American public is being purposefully provoked into rash behavior. The reaction to Obama thus far has been pretty measured, even though the administration has ratcheted up the public anger threshold with the KSM trial and the surge-and-split operation in Afghanistan. If we are venturing into child porn land – Obama and friends might be meddling in forces they can’t control. If people start believing that Obama is evil – then their reaction to him might become increasingly visceral.

  • el polacko

    the few titles from which you quote here are collections of personal reminiscences. why are people’s real-life experiences too “disgusting” or “evil” to be shared with others ? it’s precisely the hysterical, repressive, reality-denying, and sex-negative attitudes of most commenters here that cause the anxieties expressed by these writers. young people can only benefit from learning that they are not ‘strange’ nor alone. there is comfort in knowing that others have shared similar experiences.

  • Alice

    I feel so scared after reading some of the excerpts. I thinko of the children who are being exposed and will be exposed to these filthy and unnatural lifestyle.

  • Jennifer

    I agree with 99% of the comments here (all except that pro-Jennings guy). This is immoral and illegal.

    We ask: Why is this going on…how come this pervert was not arrested? There are a thousand reasons, but they all lead to the same thing…apathy. Our apathy will be our undoing if we do not start to say “no” to this rape of our society, by taking action.

    I take personal offense to what this man stands for and these books he promotes. They are an attack against my children and I am fighting back.

    I fight back by HOMESCHOOLING my children. I understand that not each family can afford for one person to remain at home to do this, but it’s worth the financial sacrafice if you can manage it.

    The next best thing is to be an ACTIVE VOLUNTEER at your child’s school. Talk with your children about your values at age appropriate times.

    What are some other ideas out there that the average person can do?

    The government has an agenda for society and they want to start with our children…it started over 200+ years ago in America and has gotten increasingly worse over time. Compulsary (forced) education has dumbed down our kids and our society, and is part of the reason we are facing so much distruction of our Constitution and America as we know it.

    God, forgive us.

  • Tim

    Hey El Polacko- I don’t think these are ‘shared’ experiences. I think these are experiences from deeply disturbed young people. Just because libs would like all young people to start behaving like this doesn’t mean they are behaving like this. We don’t allow kids to vote, drink, drive without rules- why? Because they are impulsive, do things that are harmful to themselves, act immaturely- but you want to put explicit porn into their hands which describes behavior only a very small number of disturbed kids would actually even think of. You want to normalize the abnormal. Go away.

    Tim, I doubt many, if any, of these accounts were actually written by young people. Sexual molestation and rape of children leaves them damaged, usually severely so, and often throughout their lives. The memories are painful and not the fond accounts that are presented in these books.

    I suspect that these stories are actually sick fantasies written by pedophiles as an effort to groom children for victimization.

    Cultural Marxism

    [Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement. However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups. Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace’ activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay’ rights groups. All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Code Pink for Peace.

    Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America. They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity. All together, this is Cultural Marxism disguised as multiculturalism.]

    “No 9-year old girl would masturbate. Why would she?”

    Uh, I did. I don’t remember when I started–four or five. At some point I realized touching a specific place felt really good (…and there’s the “why”). It wasn’t at all sexual–I didn’t make the connection between what I was doing and sex until around the time I got my period. I hate to compare myself to a lab rat, but I can only compare it to learning that if you press the bar, you get a food pellet. It was instinct, and it was completely innocent. (My instincts also told me I should only do it alone in my room; I have no idea if my parents knew and I will never ask them.)

    It’s not unusual or wrong for children to realize/wonder things on their own. Key concept: on their OWN. Adults have no business forcing knowledge on them before they’re ready to discover it for themselves.

    I do think the reason I didn’t make the connection between touching myself and sexual activity was because my parents made sure I wasn’t exposed to sexual activity on screen or in print. The YA books at our local library were mostly from the 1950s; PG movies were screened for anything darker than a first kiss before I could see them. Sex ed in school was anatomy diagrams. At the time I didn’t realize how lucky I was, but I sure do now.

    And now that I’m middle aged, reading those descriptions made me physically ill.

    I feel sorry for kids forced to read explicit sexual materials in class because they won’t have the joy of discovering new things on their own or with a partner later on. It’s all been reduced to a how-to diagram or a cookbook; all the intimacy and wonder have been removed.

    I don’t get it. Is the prevalent opinion here that children don’t think about sexual issues, and posses some switch inside that flips at 18 creating a fully grown sexual adult. That’s a foolish, and frightening concept. I know you are all scared of a changing world and feel that you are loosing something through your perceived new sexualization of children. I get that. In your memory of the past, things were more pure, and these issues didn’t exist. I’m sorry to say, that past is a fiction. These things were always happening. Children discover sex, some straight, some gay, and never on the timetable that you want. It’s just not going to happen.

    I’d like to explain why a fanatical banning of this material is dangerous to children. We have created a society where sexual experimentation is both widespread and considered shameful. As children begin to discover their own sexuality, they feel alone, and wrong, especially if the child is homosexual. Repression of these impulses leads to dangerous behavior, depression, and in a heartbreaking number of cases, suicide. All because they feel alone and broken. These books exist to tell these children and teens that they are not alone in this world. That others have gone through what they have, and survived. This is healing literature, and it needs to be in the hands of those it can help.

    If you are afraid of what your child may or may not be exposed to, the speak with him or her about how you feel. Let them know that you love and support them, and nothing, even sexual orientation, can ever change that. If you can’t say that, then you are the one that had no right to be around children.

  • Mauser

    I don’t know if I would call this porn, if only because porn is supposed to be arousing. I have trouble imagining anyone reading this bleak, alienated crap and finding it “Hot”. From the bit about a young boy expressing his disgust at the appearance of a older man stalking him on a bus, and then having sex in a restroom almost with no conscious volition, to the absolute disdain expressed in others for “Normalcy” (seriously, kids hate to be considered abnormal at that age). This is simply vile. If this is what is supposed to make gays feel good about homosexuality, I’m amazed the suicide rate isn’t even higher.

    And yes, it should be here. Those complaining somehow managed to read past multiple warnings without thinking that they might want to stop. Although I think the researchers should continue to check out the other books on the list and help build the case.

    You’re right, Andrew. Stories of girls who found sexual empowerment through prostituting themselves, a man who jacked off on a hill that overlooks his childhood hometown, and stories of boys tasting one another’s semen is both healing and helpful. /sarcasm

    I don’t think it’s up to you or the rest of your NAMBLA buddies to decide who should be around kids. Sod off.

    I think you should keep this content posted; I am in disagreement with the posters who say you should remove it. The material helps you make up your mind pretty fast. Safe school czar, indeed.

  • Just like people benefit more fully by seeing an aborted baby in regard to abortion, they might benefit by reading a few lines from the school czar’s recommendations in regard to homosexual porn. You have given your readers a warning/an opportunity to not read further. Please offer everyone a way to rid our nation of this filth as well.

    “These books exist to tell these children and teens that they are not alone in this world.”

    No they don’t. The authors, purveyors and anyone who supports the introduction of this reading material in a classroom of underage students should be imprisoned for life.

    Andrew, just as the insane man thinks himself sane, the child molester thinks he is normal and good. If I were you, I’d give that some thought. NAMBLA thinks they are right, and that children love to be raped by grown men. Perhaps you have your NAMBLA card and that explains your position?

    Funny how none of the authors reminisce about the normal, heterosexual exploration I can recall engaging in when I was a young boy, off in a room with the daughter of my parents’ friends, while they visited. We played doctor, albeit with our clothes on. I suppose it would make for rather boring reading though.

    I am strangely torn here.

    I am an extreme individualist, I suppose is the best way of describing myself and my… Views? Opinions? Hmmm…

    I believe that each person, each and every individual, is worth listening to, talking to, and understanding. Every point of view is worth consideration. That every person should just LIVE, in the manner they choose, and the way they feel is the most correct for their own self. However, the necessary… consequence? corollary? of this, is that they leave others to live theirs in peace, as well. (I am in NO way trying to influence anyone or push my ideals on any of you… just stating them so you might understand where I am coming from in the rest of this post 🙂 )

    I believe, personally, that these works DO have intrinsic value. That they are worthwhile, as is ANYTHING that someone wishes to write, create, draw, or otherwise share. Several of these books are beautiful glimpses into individual souls, and are easily appreciated for the emotional artworks they are, a slice of shared joys and pains, explicit and unabashed.

    None of these passages are more explicit, in fact many are far LESS, than those in several other works I have read, highly acclaimed and extremely popular books which I see people of all ages reading frequently; the first two examples that come to mind are Jean M. Auel’s Clan of the Cave Bear series, and Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series and Princess Merideth series. In all three of these, over half of the written material is intensely explicit sex (well, in the Anita Blake books, this only starts after about halfway into the series, and in clan of the cave bear, mostly only from the second book on).

    However, I also do not believe that making these “mandatory reading” is anything near a good idea. Reading, itself, absolutely MUST be mandatory; we must do SOMETHING to stem the fast-rising tide of illiteracy, poor vocabulary, bad grammar, and atrocious spelling which are fast drowning our culture, country, and even our world in this era. However, works such as these are definitely not for everyone, and while some children may be able to read, understand, and appreciate them for what they are, for the majority reading these would be a mistake. They wouldn’t be able to take away from it the feelings, thoughts, and spirit of the author, but merely giggle about the naughty bits to each-other. And while there is nothing wrong with this behavior, it should be happening at it’s own pace, in it’s own time, with material the person discovered for themselves, and without any parental, adult, or authoritarian meddling mucking up the process. It’s a large part of growing up, and growing into the person one will become for the rest of their life; discovering the world and maturing one step at a time. And some parts of that process just needs to happen on one’s own.

    I believe there are plenty of books out there which EASILY meet the stated goals/purposes of this GLSEN group, promoting understanding and fighting the problems of bullying. First two authors to spring to mind are Tanya Huff and Robert A. Heinlein… Huff has many homosexual couples in her books, and at least one, “The Fire’s Stone”, has a truly moving and beautiful romance, which just happens to be between two guys, wound into a great Fantasy adventure. And Heinlein is simply one of the best authors we’ve ever had, and in his books there are MANY examples of different sexualities and lifestyles. Neither of these authors see any reason to get explicit… a great, passionate lead-up to a sexual encounter, then skip the details, giving the characters the privacy to do something private with each-other, and we join back in the next morning, or later that afternoon, or whatever 😛 It does everything they say they want, with their program.

    Anyways, sorry I ramble so much. I know my own feelings on a subject in an instinctive and emotional sense, but putting it into words takes some real thought and effort, so I can go on and on sometimes. That’s my viewpoint, though 😛

    I feel as though I’ve been assaulted, and I was prepared (so I thought) for the “worst.” I can’t imagine what it would be like to read these horrible words as a child. I’m sure it is a traumatic experience that they cannot understand. Since it was given to them by a teacher it must be okay, and that must cause so much confusion. Hence increased teenage suicide/depression, etc.

    As far as having only links-can’t do it. The author gave clear warning-“stop reading now.” I couldn’t finish it, so just scrolled past.

    What an unholy horror upon our world. Mordor is looming ever larger.

  • Gail F

    These are disgusting. Does anyone know if these books have ever actually been adopted by schools?

    While most of the scenes in the excerpts would have been disgusting if they had been heterosexual, it’s telling that no one (as far as I know) is advocating similar material involving heterosexual characters of memoirs for children. The GLSEN isn’t even attempting to make this behavior seem “normal human behavior” by including heterosexual childhood and child/adult sex escapades. They are saying this kind of behavior is “normal” — but only for homosexual people.

    I think that all adults should have to read this post and then ask themselves what they think of what is largely painted as compassionate programs to help marginalized people. Is this kind of thing what most people think of when they say, “Everyone should be able to love whoever he or she loves”? Does it have anything to do with love at all? And ithis is what a large, powerful, and rich organization for homosexuals is pushing. Does it reflect the views of most people who consider themselves “gay”? If so, they need to come out (no pun intended) and say it, so that the rest of us can see clearly what they are asking us to do.

    Well, it certainly has become easier to mobilize the frenzied bible thumpers, hasn’t it?

    All one needs to do is look at the “Sponsors” for GLSEN (Cisco Systems, IBM, Pepsico, Goldman Sachs, CITI). These fascists love to pit the bible thumpers against the gays. GLSEN is looking more and more like a setup. Most gays and lesbians have no desire to see young children exposed to pornography nor do most of them condone any sort of sexual relationship between young children and adults. There are straight people who are pedophiles, too, you know and I’m willing to bet that the same % of each population (gay / straight) represents pedophiles.

    This GLSEN is utilizing the 80 year old myth that all gays are pedophiles to try and kick start a new era in homophobia. I am not gay, but I have a few gay friends who are happily with partners that are the same age as they are.

    IBM = engineered, built, and serviced (on site) punch card computer systems used in Nazi concentration camps

    PEPSICO = buying up all fresh water resource locations possible in 3rd world nations ravaged by wars and guerrilla revolts incited by CIA

    Goldman Sachs = big winner in the ’08 and ’09 criminal banker bailouts that stole from Taxpayers to give to the insanely wealthy. Also, big winner in put option profits made from 9/11 via options placed with Deutsche Bank (also huge winner on 9/11).

    Here we lowly serfs sit being mobilized against one another using emotional fiction such as “gays are pedophiles” while the Nobles and Lords continue to usurp wealth, money, and power right from underneath us. It is only a matter of time, now.

  • Frankie Sierra

    Oh God, the Obama-nation just keeps getting more and more ridiculous, now doesn’t it?

    First 8 years of the most obviously swift movement towards fascism, and now 4 (hopefully not 8) years of the most obvious push for socialization and disintegration of culture-wide values.

    Crap… we already have to register everything with the government (marriages, children, cars, houses, guns, boats) and permits for everything (hunting, fishing, driving, possessing a fire arm [our guaranteed RIGHT not privilege). Kinda sounds like the USSR when I put it that way, right?

    I love seeing the fights over “private” or “social” medicine. With Big Pharma, you’re just seeing an alternate style of Communism. Either Big Government tells you what you can or can’t do (socialism/communism) or Big Corporations tell you what you can or can’t do (fascism/globalization/elitism).

    This whole thing with GLSEN is just more moving towards destroying the family unit as well as further dividing the dying middle class.

    God help us all.

    You did exactly the right thing in posting as much as you did without censoring it. Average, normal people would not wish to believe this filth is being targeted to children without seeing it.

  • Concerned Christian

    Although I am appalled to read that these books are being allowed in school libraries, reading most of these comments has made me sad.

    Please remember the following:

    1. These books are not REQUIRED reading for children. Thank goodness.

    2. Obama is not personally handing these books to children, nor is he requiring they read this filth.

    3. Homosexuals and bisexuals, by and large, are not out to corrupt children. Pedophiles might be, but average homosexuals are not. But homosexuals are not necessarily pedophiles. HETEROSEXUALS CAN BE PEDOPHILES TOO.

    3a. There is no homosexual agenda besides “Let us marry the people we love.”

    Obviously Obama made a mistake in appointing the perverts who have allowed these books to be recommended (note recommended and not REQUIRED) to children but “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone…”

    To “Concerned Christian” – are you really as naive as you seem to be? Do you really believe that Obama is above the fray on this one? That he can just appoint corrupt administrators, one after the other, and not have responsibility? Frankly, it is attitudes like yours that are largely responsible for allowing the United States government to become the cesspool it now is. There is a time to “turn the other cheek.” But not when we have a government that seeks to corrupt the very future of our country. Our children. Are you really so blind that you can’t see the evil that permeates the Obama Administration? We as Christians have a duty and responsibility to confront evil and expose it when we see it. Thank God for folks like Scott Baker. You might be interested in reflecting on the words of one of our nations founding fathers, and the author of the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure if we have removed their only firm basis: a conviction in the minds of men that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” Look around you. We live in a country that has legalized abortion, the killing of innocent babies in the sanctity of their mothers’ wombs. We have removed God from our schools and the public square. We have the most pro abortion President one could ever have imagined. A President who by the stroke of his pen opened up federal funding for embyonic stem cell research, the further killing of innocent human life. Thomas Jefferson was pretty prophetic, I think. We are a nation that has turned away from God, and we are now experiencing God’s wrath.

  • RE: #189 “How is this a crisis?”

    Because, Patrick, the individual responsible for these books serves in a high ranking capacity in the Dept. of Education and may well have plans to foist this kind of stuff on our children thru school officials. He is paid thru our tax $$. Our kids are at risk. Any other questions?

    RE: #221 “We played doctor, albeit with our clothes on. I suppose it would make for rather boring reading though.”

    Perhaps so, Hugo, that is if you didn’t engage in any of those disgusting activities outlined in those books. Normal children don’t do those things unless they are exploited.

    RE: #223 “I believe that each person, each and every individual, is worth listening to, talking to, and understanding. Every point of view is worth consideration. That every person should just LIVE, in the manner they choose, and the way they feel is the most correct for their own self.”

    AML, people are indeed worth talking and listening to but are you trying to say that any of these depraved and unnatural actions described in these books merit consideration and that they should be engaged in on any terms without restriction? If so, it sounds like you came right out of the ACLU’s camp.

    If I adopt that view, that means I am free to harm or take advantage of anyone I wish or steal if it feels good to me. That’s an anarchic view of society which leads to chaos. We have laws on our books which, when obeyed, lead to an orderly society. When we disobey those laws and don’t enforce them & the penalties that go with them, then we have a chaotic world which Obama and his thugs are creating.

    Sorry, I don’t want that kind of world. Yes, we have way too many unnecessary laws on our books and way too many nanny state laws. Such should be removed from our books. However, our laws that should be enforced are summed up in the 10 Commandments – thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not covet. Of course, those laws don’t fly in the ACLU’s world.

  • Phil

    I doubt these are “shared experiences” or even “experiences from…young people”. They appear to be prurient fantasies manufactured by adults and projected onto children in the worst kind of pornographic, targeted propaganda.

    It reminds me of the NAMBLA material used to project adult sexuality on children to justify pedophilia. Regardless, it all the same – child abuse.

    A society that doesn’t protect its own children from violence and abuse is far worse than a misogynistic, xenophobic or even bigoted one. It’s playing with its own suicide and setting up a cycle of ongoing abuse, dysfunction and addiction. Ignore the idiots who say this level of sexual action out is “normal” for a five or even an eleven-year-old. It’s not, and most of us know it.

    If my two boys were exposed to this pornography via the schools I’d treat this as it should be treated – sexual abuse of a minor. I’d report it to the police, social services and the local media. I’d demand action and, regardless, I’d sue the public school system for feloneous child abuse along with whoever recommended and approved the placement of this pornographic, predatory propaganda into it personally.

    And of course we realize that not all or even many gay men and women are “out to corrupt children” and promote this kind of child abuse. The thing, why is our own “Safe Schools” Czar, the organization he founded and now promotes in the Department of Education among the tiny minority who do?

    Thank you, GP. Leave this up. Please. Folks need to see it. All of it.

  • Astonishing and disgusting.

    Gay activist David Bohnett’s speech at the GLSEN awards earlier this year is a must-read in light of this. He praises how youth are “coming out” at younger and younger ages while calling for “active measures” against his religious opponents.

    This material should definately be kept up on as many websites as possible. I agree with the person that said: “how would we know the horrors of the holocaust and abortion without seeing the unfiltered truth?”

    It is obvious to me that this story has scared many brain-warped progressives out there. By the number of posters on this story, compared to other posts of Jims’, and by the sheer deceitfullness of some of the over-the-top posts written in favor of the books. The posters in favor of these disgusting books seem to have several interesting things in common: They try to decieve by claiming to be “Christian” or “conservative”. They speak about “emotional needs”. They sound like brainwashed progressives from the “arts” or “performing arts” community. Not all artsy people are brainwashed progressives by any stretch of the imagination, but this “community” is filled with them, I have seen it all over and over.

    There is NO amount of sophisticated pontifications and writings that can make a rational and truthful case that these books are good for ANY child, or grownup for that matter.

    So yes, this story has scared alot of progressive nut-jobs out there for there evilness being exposed.

    This story needs to be trumpeted loudly and repeatedly on Fox News until the County is raging mad.

  • Modern Day Prophet, a great rebuttal to the so-called “concerned” Christian. However, “concerned”, may I respond to each point?

    “1. These books are not REQUIRED reading for children. Thank goodness.”

    Do you have any proof that Mr. Jennings, School Chief Arne Duncan or anyone else at the Dept. of Ed – and yes, including Obama – have no plans to promote this rubbish in any way, shape or form? Do not be so sure, considering that Obama signed a hate crimes law that some sane members of Congress have dubbed “The Pedophile Protection Act”. If you haven’t heard of it, go to World Net Daily, plug this in to their search engine and you’ll find it.

    “2. Obama is not personally handing these books to children, nor is he requiring they read this filth.”

    If you want to use the word “literally” as in literally handing them out, fine, but you know darn well that statement can be used as a smokescreen to absolve Obama and I daresay that’s what you are doing. But don’t be so sure that he doesn’t support this stuff. If I were you, I would go to USA Survival’s website and read about Obama’s mentor, Frank Davis, and his hedonistic sexual lifestyle where he did practically everything in the book and wrote about it. It’s chronicled quite well and it takes a little bit of gumption to read and digest this filth.

    “3. Homosexuals and bisexuals, by and large, are not out to corrupt children. Pedophiles might be, but average homosexuals are not. But homosexuals are not necessarily pedophiles. HETEROSEXUALS CAN BE PEDOPHILES TOO.”

    I’ll grant you that some homosexuals will find this stuff disgusting, perhaps those who are not aligned with the ACLU and who don’t march in all those parades flaunting their trophy body parts. If you want to define those homosexuals as average, I’ll go along with you.

    But if you want to say they are not out to corrupt our children, well, I got news for you. No matter how you slice it, men engaging in sex with other men, women with women and those who do it with both genders have had their wires shorted out. It’s not a natural sexual process of growing up. When you go out and corrupt the normal process our lives were set to go and engage in unnatural sexual proclivities, at some point those desires that may be fulfilled at that time eventually do not satisfy and so they will go out and find others to exploit. The victims are frequently children.

    Yes, homos and heteros can be pedophiles and by sheer numbers, there are more heteros. But when you add up the percentages (homos being 1-2% at most in terms of population), the homos “win” by a landslide. If you don’t believe me, let me bring to your attention the Catholic Church scandal involving pervert priests for which the church paid out millions to the families of these children. Yes, these priests were pedophiles but by and large, they did not engage in sexual activities with the opposite sex. They did so with teen boys. And they did it for decades. Look it up.

    “3a. There is no homosexual agenda besides “Let us marry the people we love.”

    I can’t say there is never a case where two men or two women truly don’t love each other. Such love, however, doesn’t translate to sexual activity. But let’s remember this – the homosexuals who want to flaunt this issue want three things: public recognition that their sexual activities are approved, endorsement of that recognition and to render irrelevant churches and individuals who believe in traditional marriage. This is all about sex, make no mistake about it. In hetero marriage, you consummate it with a natural sexual act. In faux homo marriage, you try to consummate it with an unnatural act. Two keys meeting each other or two keyholes meeting each ther don’t work, no matter how you try. Sorry for the blunt description but that’s the only way I can say it.

    True Christianity does not willingly permit these sexual activities which, especially among men, shorten their lives 10-30 years. It’s not loving to do so. Ask Stephen Bennett, a former homosexual, what love is and it’s not just saying it’s OK to engaged in depraved sex acts. There is help for people who want out.

    ““He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone…”

    Another common misuse of scripture, just like “judge not”. Sounds like you came out of the United Church of Christ or the Episcopal Church.

    A pastor I once knew said you don’t look down on anyone unless you’re there to pick them up. There’s a lot of truth in that. And a lot of genuine Christians and even others have tried helping these folks to leave their lifestyle of sin, shame, depression and anguish. We’re there to help them. However, when someone like Kevin Jennings, son of a minister BTW, wants to be who he is and then teach our children to follow his footsteps, sorry, then we have a solemn obligation to step in and protect our children.

    The Jesus I know from Matthew 18 in the Bible pronounced a severe penalty for those who would harm children. At the rate Mr. Jennings is going, he will stand before God some day and I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes at that moment. As it stands, I believe law enforcement has an obligation to arrest Mr. Jennings for his conduct and to ascertain whether he himself has engaged in homosexual pedophile acts. I am not saying he has but given what he has allowed to be promoted on his watch at GLSEN, I wouldn’t be surprised if he has engaged in them himself.

    You have a lot to learn about being a born again Christian, my friend.

  • One more post for me and I’ll sign off, sorry I’m so long winded; thank you, Gateway, for providing this great forum and for what you have done for God and country by your superb work.

    Yes, I concur with the others who say leave the graphic stuff up. I realize that some of the language may cause certain folks’ computers to block this page and others similar to it. But this needs to be up for no other reason than it is what it is. There are ways to work around the technical issues that will arise for those whose systems, for whatever reason, won’t display pages like these.

    The public must be made aware of this trash. We also have an obligation to present this stuff to school boards and administrators. If you are a property owner, you help pay the salaries of school officials, even if you don’t have children in the public school system. As a result, you should seriously consider attending the next board meeting. I am ashamed to say that I have never done so but I will be doing so this Wednesday for the first time because this is very serious.

    This information needs to be disseminated at city council meetings, with mayors, sheriffs, police chiefs, county commissioners, state lawmakers, governors and yes, your U.S. Congress critters. They need to know that these books could weave their way to a school or city library. Child sex laws exist in all 50 states and they must be enforced now more than ever, especially if Jennings ever gets his way.

    We have a solemn duty to demand Congress to force Jennings to step down and yes, Arne Duncan as well. Obama knows full well what he’s doing here. He is one of the masters of the homosexual agenda and the homo community knows it quite well; that’s why they wanted him in office. See this link – http://www.libertypost.org/cgi-bin/readart.cgi?ArtNum=220842 (per website, only up til Monday). And Google “Larry Sinclair” with Obama and you’ll have everything you need to know how the homosexual agenda has infiltrated America thru this administration. It must be stopped for the sake of our children, even if it costs us our very lives.

    Thanks for reading and God bless.

  • After having read a bit and flying through the short books reports, I couldn’t miss the action picture of the males about to have sex like a couple of dogs and after having read most of the comments I still don’t know what to advice anyone as to what to do about the content in this post.

    I really don’t know what to tell my good American cousins who care about their loving children except to keep praying and doing what you believe is truly right in your heart and mind and needless to say without using violence.

    I know that good people are out working while evil is working very hard to destroy “Good Christian Families” cause that’s how they survive so good people must stand UP and if those who don’t believe in turning the other cheek like sinner vic, then we have self defense installed by our good ancestors through legal behavior.

    There’s always good that comes out of every bad things if we pray and in this case, I’m sure that Your good President will put a stop to this man.

    I know that good and bad is in each one of us as sinners that we are but when it comes to our loving heart and with God’s Help, Good always conquers evil when good people stand up in a balanced determination.

    As a Canadian and having made so many mistakes myself, I don’t want to get started so I’ll close by saying,

    Lord Jesus, please grand me the serenity to accept the things I can’t change, the courage to change the things that I can and should change and the wisdom to know the difference between “Good” and “Evil”.

    God Bless,

    Peace

  • “I know you are all scared of a changing world and feel that you are loosing something through your perceived new sexualization of children. I get that. In your memory of the past, things were more pure, and these issues didn’t exist. I’m sorry to say, that past is a fiction. These things were always happening. Children discover sex, some straight, some gay, and never on the timetable that you want. It’s just not going to happen.” — Andrew

    Andrew, you can bag the patronizing “poor, ill-educated people afraid of change” baloney. You can also ditch the pseudo-scientific psychobabble. The crap in the examples above isn’t really about children exploring their sexuality in secrecy and silence; it’s about adults retrojecting their sexual rationalizations into their childhoods … at least, in the examples that aren’t barely-disguised pedophile fantasies.

    And, AML, you’re wrong: There’s absolutely nothing of any redeeming social value in this crap. There’s nothing redeeming in straight porn, either. Porn by its very nature degrades the actors, the act and the consumer who views it.

    Of course not. You all just decided to believe it because, well, because you read it. What a bunch of complete morons ALL of you are, including the person that posted this bilge water before checking to see if it’s true.

    Actually we inherit the earth through our children. So it’s a personal responsibility to protect one’s own child from monsters and devil beasts.
    In simple terms, children are our future that deserve to protected, taught by parents, only parents, not the government, not the hooligan, and not certainly ass-tards.
    Whoever wrote that rubbish doesn’t deserve to be called writers, only names should be fitting for them is hoodlums and murderers. No child should be allowed to look at any smut.

    A simple solution for American people is to tear down the two tier political system. take down the independent party as well, to be fair for the tax paying American, you would need at least four choices of candidates minimum, four parties, and a vote for no confidence for either candidate.
    Nothing less.
    Also remove the IRS, the federal reserve completely, go back to gold and silver.
    Make the congress work for you for a change. Limit the government. Less taxation.
    Repeal the useless laws that had been passed recently, enforce the existing laws.
    Boot out all illegal immigrants, no exception.
    ban abortion, I consider it as simply murder, a form of self mutilation and hatred for oneself.
    Have the Americans troops withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan. Too much blood have been spilt, considering that the civilians in those two countries had gone through too much. Furthermore the Americans troops are considered as dirt by majority of their fellow Americans.

    Jeff Prager- I did check and these books are the ones recommended on the GSlEN site. GSLEN is our safe schools czar group. It’s his group. He recommends this reading to kids as young as 12 as being helpful to young kids. GSLEN is responsible for teaching explicit, sexual conduct and immoral behaviors to children on a repeated basis. This is what Kevin Jennings believes and what he wants to teach our children, and what he has taught to children in the past. Just look at what has gone on in Massachusetts. It’s Kevin Jennings doing and his deviancy that he is trying to promulgate among our children.

  • This is the most outrageous thing I have ever read. Of all the “czars” that the Obamunist has put into power, I thought that Van Jones was the worst. I was wrong. I have never been so enraged in my life and I am going to bring this up at every campaign speech I make. When I am elected to Congress in November, I will make the removal of Kevin Jennings from his job my pet project and I will not rest until he is replaced.

    Jeff Prager,

    Read carefully please. Jenkins recommends these books for school children. As a leader of a militant homosexual, lesbian, transexual, transvetite organization, this is the garbage he is pushing for children.

    It does not matter if he has been successful in his endeavor to push such perversion on young children or not. The fact is he is UnSafe for our children.

    You should be alarmed, disgusted and angry that anyone, gay or straight would push such perversion and pornographic material on young, innocent minds.

    Your anger against normal peoples reaction to this filth reflects poorly on you. You’re projecting bad values and bad judgement. Maybe some of Jenkins recommendations hit to close to home?

    The fact that Jenkins in the past mislead a teen with an adult, has associations with a NAMBLA supporter he highly regarded, and recommends these books for children is indefensible. All of your insults aside and attempt to smear people.

    You cannot defend this man or his actions from the past.

    He should be fired. He should never been offerred the job.

    That you defend him is deplorable. It says much more about your values and your hatred of others here. People have every right to be upset. Jenkins has a radical agenda to indoctrinate all kids with his filth.

    End of discussion, fire the man.

  • Joshua

  • Joshua

    Ren, Jeff Prager insulted and smeared people. He is angry and made no point at all.

    That anyone would recommend these books for reading by children at all is disgusting. And that person should not be hired for any position overseeing childrens education.

    Jennings is mired in controversy from the beginning, being infatuated with a NAMBLA supporter, giving irresponsible advice to a teen having sex with an adult, and now we have the entire picture of his leadership – recommending pornographic homo-erotic text and sick pictures, evoking boy scouts – which is as everyone knows strictly against their teachings.

    The fact that Jennings recommends this twisted perversion to undeveloped minds and children is enough for him to be fired and never to be hired.

    Your solution and Jeff’s is See and Hear no evil. Yet that is exactly what Jennings is spreading to young minds.

  • Joshua

    Auntie,

    Yes, that is always the tried and true tactic. Try to shame people, name-calling, insults, try to make them back down and always call them “ignorant” or “racist” or “bigots”.

    When in truth, they are the ignorant, the bigots and full of hatred for normal people.

    That they defend this cretin at all speaks volumes of their own problems in life.

    And you’re right Auntie, none of their tactics work, it only shows how viscious, uncouth and sleazy the other side is in this debate for America’s future.

    They’re distracting from the truth. That Jennings as a leader of a militant gay organization recommended filth and perversion for underage children. He must be fired.

    And we must all begin to fight for children in public schools. We must fight for equal rights to tell the true story of the plight of homosexual lifestyles, the higher death rates, suicide rates, drug usages, STDS, HIV rates, etc., that plagues especially homosexuals.

    We must demand to take our schools back locally away from centralized and corrupt government. We must demand parents right of choice, so that bad schools and teachers are left behind. We must liberate our children from the indoctrination camps of the leftist, atheist and homosexual agenda.

    Schools are for reading, writing, math, physics, science, chemistry, history(true history of our Founding Fathers), not a social engineering agenda from a bunch of social failures, who seek to push their perversions on defenseless young minds.

    I’ve had it with the angry homosexual pushing his perversion onto our children. Pushing his dysfunctional life choices onto the public at-large and into childs minds as being normal. When in fact, the sexual act is abnormal, often the result of molestation, and a non-existent father, or strong and stable male figure.

    It often leads to devastating lives for so many.

    The last thing schools should be is a place for indoctrinating our youth in abnormal sexual behavior.

    Jeff Prager – For me the issue isn’t whether these books are already in the classroom, or whether the public schools across the country have been sent a list of these books with a recommendation that they be read by our children/grandchildren. Rather, it has to do with Mr. Jennings himself, and what he stands for. When you look at Mr. Jennings past, Jeff, you can’t help but be terrified by what he has advocated. Do you really think Mr. Jennings checked all of his dirty baggage at the door when he took the job of School Safety Czar? Keep in mind that the organization he was the head of before he took a job in Obama’s administration, GLSEN, advocates that the books exposed in this blog should be used in the schools. Bottom line for me, Jeff, is that Jennings is a real threat to my grandchildren, and I do NOT want him in the office of School Safety Czar. Do you?

    Well, congratulations, out of a huge list of books you just happen to find 11 with pages that you disagree with.

    Does this represent the entire list of books, who knows and you haven’t done anything to prove that it a representative sample.

    I’m ignoring this over-hyped, statistically irrelevant passage until someone can prove to me that these aren’t just a few badly chosen (badly? poorly more like) with passages that some people find disturbing.

  • The “straight” agenda (if there is one) isn’t achieved by pushing heterosexual pornography down the throats of our children. Why does teaching tolerance for homosexuals require such obscenity? This is disgusting and utterly morally offensive. And what does President Obama think of all this? Wait… he did say “if you want to know my policies, look at who I have surrounding me.” Done and done.

    I can’t remember reading sexually-explicit stories in grade school. (It wasn’t until high school, when I remember — only vaguely — “The Handmaid’s Tale”.)

  • I want to state, here and now, I’m a gay conservative. I find this despicable, deplorable, and absolutely disgusting and without merit, purpose, morality, or thought. Myself, along with Tammy Bruce and other gay conservatives, do not promote this kind of thing or find it in anyway shape or form acceptable. Children should be allowed to be children as long as possible and parents should be allowed to educate their children on sexuality on their own.

    I’m horrified at what our country has become and what is and has been coming out of our Federal Government for entirely too long.

    Please, to everyone above,…please, please, please understand–not all of us are like this. I have been preaching against this kind of thing for ages now…and let me tell you–it is NOT easy at times.

    I for only one felt relieved at the fact that there are authors out there that are not afraid to engage in conversations about the emotions and physical feelings that 12-17 year olds actually have. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m pretty confident that at 12 years old, I was going through puberty, raging hormones, and scared to death that being aroused made me an evil hell-bound sinner. Isn’t it better for our children to be engaged in these conversations with their parents and educators and know they are not alone and not evil rather then having them be depressed and suicidal, or go out and start trying to learn about sex on their own by having it and becoming pregnant? Besides, I can personally testify that most of the books on the GLSEN list have nothing sexually explicit about them and in fact I will go so far as to claim that the authors of this article singled out the worst cases they could find just to try and make a point. Mitchell Gold’s “Crisis” for example is a landmark work that finally shares the real stories of real mothers, fathers, children, brothers, and sisters, that have been tortured and left for dead because of their sexuality. I can’t say I approve of everything on the list, but then again, I can’t say I approve of everything my church asks me to read either… Regardless I had hoped the Christian community would approach this issue with a bit more compassion rather than the hatred and contempt I see expressed in so many of these comments. God bless us all, and dear God please save us from each other.

    You can’t shield kids forever. Better that they’re aware of the “right thing” earlier than figuring it out later. This is the problem with what we’ve termed “conservative values:” rather than tell kids the truth and present reality as-is with our guidance, we sweep everything under the rug and shield them from truth…and that’s okay to a minor extent (you wouldn’t want to teach a five-year-old how to operate your gun’s safety lock mechanism, for example) but ultimately it hurts the child. How many of you people commenting on this article fail to consider that children become adults? At 13, you’re not a child, you’re a pubescent teenager who is developing into an adult, and you need to start learning all there is to know about adult things or you’ll be naive and stupid and easily taken advantage of. I guess you “Conservatives” don’t love your children after all, since you won’t even allow them to be equipped with the knowledge needed to not get screwed over in the real world outside of your cozy little bubble you call a home…

  • There’s a huge difference between having healthy conversations with teenagers who are developing their sexuality and promoting filth, debauchery, and unhealthy sexual attitudes. Just because conservatives prefer to have healthy conversations doesn’t mean their opposed to have ANY conversation as I seem to be hearing in some of the posts above.

    Christopher and Brazilian – it was very good to read your posts. I am convinced that a vast majority of reasonable minded gay men and women would agree with you. The kind of indoctrination that people like Jennings and GLSEN are pushing on our schools must stop. Parents, not schools, are responsible for the sex education of their children. I have no problem with teaching tolerance and respect in our schools for people who are gay. Indeed, we should be teaching respect and tolerance for all people. And that includes religious tolerance as well. But the material exposed in this blog goes well beyond that. There is a very nefarious and extreme liberal element in our country that has been successful in getting religion out of schools. Now they want to promote their own extreme agenda in the schools. The time has come to draw the line. This must be stopped.

    ” I guess you “Conservatives” don’t love your children after all, since you won’t even allow them to be equipped with the knowledge needed to not get screwed over in the real world outside of your cozy little bubble you call a home… “.
    Don’t presume to know who loves their children & what said parent believes is in the best interest of their child. You know absolutely nothing … about them. Unless you are the perfect parent (which I highly doubt because none exist) you are not in any position to rip into their legitimate concerns. This is not a “conservative” (or even liberal) issue and using such a blanket label is plain ignorant.

    The bible, when taken out of context and cut into pieces, can be just as pornographic in terms of violence and adult themed.

    Have you self-righteous bible-thumping freaks even read the “good book”? It’s filled with acts of violence and vengeance gory beyond any description of some prepubescent kid getting his jollies playing with himself behind the bushes. Literature is real life put to writing. You may wish to burn books that reflect human experience and put your faith in wrath and fury and warmongering instead, but it is the height of hypocrisy to blame a few paragraphs of sexually explicit literature for society’s ills. What ails our world is senseless violence and perpetual war, virtually all of which originates from intolerance of that which is different. It is utterly incomprehensible to me that you guys would spend so much time picking out the dirty bits in books, while the world literally collapses around you under the weight of this nation’s lust for empire building. Obama should be held accountable for many things–his mimicry of Bush’s oppressive and criminal “justice” systems, torture programs and perpetual warmongering, and middle-class destroying trade policies, to name just a few–but to dwell on a few swear words in a stupid book list as the cause of our downfall? Get real, people. Go to Salon.com and read Glenn Greenwald, a true progressive who tears Obama policies apart on a daily basis, for an idea of the practices that really have an impact on our world.

    I totally disagree with the bible being pornographic when taken out of context! The bible lays out things that took place in history as a lesson to mankind of what takes place when the Laws Moses reminded the people of keeping in Deuteronomy 18 especially are forgotten or done away with. These incidents should be lessons of how morality can be quickly lost. The same system of education they had back then, From Egypt to Babylon is the same system passed down to us now that teach our children this garbage. Do a little research and read excerpts of the Talmud that the Israylite people were taught when in captivity in Babylon and see where this crap really came from. Its the same Babylonish system that enforces it now.

    “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.”

    Ahahahahaha.
    Yes, a suggested reading list with “icky” content is just like millions of human beings getting burned in ovens. Clearly.

    “It’s purient writing to provoke images and to excite the imagination. It’s everything evil.
    From imagination comes experimentation. It’s disgusting.”

    1600 called, it’s asking you for it’s puritanical madness back.

    I think this is one of the best quotes on this topic: “Anybody who thinks that a 7 year old being taught about sex is “sick” while seeing nothing wrong with giving him a GI Joe or a toy gun is pretty messed up.”

    Funny how we’re so thrilled about encouraging children and teens to idolize murder and warfare, two of the most despicable of all human acts, but we have to throw a fit if kids are ever allowed to see a boob or if teens are allowed read about the weird things that other folks did during those same hormone-crazed years.

    Don’t run from public schools. Stay and fight. I’m a public high school teacher and you need to stand up and be counted. If you run, the children at your kids school will be the worse off for it.

    Sorry, Randy. I will not put my own children at risk in some misguided attempt to help out kids whose parents either don’t care or approve of stuff like this. My first responsibility is to my own children and that’s why we’ll be homeschooling.

    On the other hand, my father is just finishing up his education degree because he feels called to be a positive force in the cesspool of the government school system. I just hope that he’s not worn down and thrown out by the corruption he’ll find there.

    Why do children need all this information? I am in my mid 50’s and managed to get by the entire time without knowing how to engage in homosexual sex acts. I know how now, thanks to a book in my daughter’s middle school library.

    I am pretty sure this knowledge hasn’t made me stronger, safer, or more enlightened. All it has done is left me with some horrifying mental images.

    Reading this is just astonishing. The content on this page is enough to make even a raging 20 year old blush (trust me). I absolutely do NOT think this material is suitable for children of any age.

    However, I don’t agree with many of the comments on this page. While these books are not suitable for any child they are, from what I understand, true accounts of LGBT people. And they are things that people should be more aware of. It’s writings like this that help to educate people to the fact that being a LGBT man or woman is not a choice that you make, but instead something that you are born as. It is not wrong, nor is it a sin against God, who I believe loves all of us regardless of sexual orientation or any other superficial characteristics.

    Children should learn more tolerance, but it should not be in schools. It should be at home. Parents should instill the values in their children by emulating what they would like their children to become. Books that are less vulgar and graphic should be produced. Books that show gay or lesbian children being accepted at school. Books showing that it’s okay for a boy to play with a barbie or that it’s alright if a young girl doesn’t like wearing dresses and want’s to play sports with the boys. Something more subtle is what will get through to children, who most likely would not even understand the vulgarity of the above excerpts.

    The radicals like Kevin Jennings are the reason why children are not learning tolerance and why radicals on the opposite end of the spectrum exist. There needs to be a middle ground somewhere.

  • Reality Check

    I’m skipping the typical comments on my feelings/views/opinions of the content of the books. I have a different point…..

    “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.”

    Does ANYONE actually think that reading these things will accomplish the goal of preventing bullying of homosexual children? SERIOUSLY? Whether you find these works horrifying, titillating, boring, or whatever, do you think they will create better understanding and acceptance by those children who inclined to bully anyway?

    Thus, I can only assume that the stated mission of GLSEN is a ruse, and therefore everything they say is suspect. Has anyone researched THAT?

  • Ang

    I can not fathom this being in our school systems. This is NOT LITERATURE!! This is pornographic material. Lets have a book burn and burn all these books!!! They can have these types of books available to children but no BIBLES??????? I think we need to clean out the White House and start over. We need conservitives that have morals, values, and who are true christians.
    This material makes me want to puke!

    I’ve been wondering how long those books/booklists have been up on GLSEN. Jennings states in a video that his last day at GLSEN was 8-1-08.

    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSkve3CJctk

    Using the WayBack Machine or Archive.org, I used their last screenshots of 7-25-08 & also chose (randomly), 7-30-07. I was looking primarily for Queer 13 & Rock Lobster.

    I found Queer 13 on the 7-30-07 link:

    http://web.archive.org/web/20070814115902/www.glsen.org/cgi-bin/iowa/all/booklink/7-12.html

    http://web.archive.org/web/20080122004819/www.glsen.org/cgi-bin/iowa/all/booklink/7-12.html

    So clearly, those two books & possibly others were on the list while Jennings was still Executive Director.

    Tomorrow I will start reading the excerpts of these books to the WH & Arne Duncan’s office.

  • All of the links are gone at that website link – there are only a few books there now that do not look to contain any sexual topics. By the way – I’ve written for educational publishers, I write for children and young adults right now, and I am a college teacher. This is explicit sexual material that does NOT belong in the classroom. Ever. I’m sick to my stomach, and I’m anything but a prude.

  • JFace – you fool – there are NO BOOKS that I even assign in college – COMMUNITY COLLEGE, PUBLICALLY FUNDED that have explicit gay or straight sex passages. There is no educational purpose to that outside of a specialized psychology, or I suppose health/medicine class. There’s plenty of diverse material that discusses the thousands of aspects of life and culture beyond sex. These books, book after book, discuss minors having sex with adults, or five and six year olds having sex. This disgusts me. This is child porn and pedophilia. It won’t help students respect other students, be kind or decent to those who are gay. It’s disgusting and does not belong in SCHOOL. It is a celebration of sexual exploitation and criminality, such as a boy prostitute expressing how criminals tortured him into thinking S/M sex was good, or numerous older people in positions of respect or power exploiting younger children. This man should immediately resign. This is disgusting and I would not blame anyone for stating this is reminiscent of the fall of the Roman Empire. Because it is.

    Barry Hussein’s one objective is to destroy America. Why? I personally believe he is a Muslim, and I believe Muslims put up most of his $$$$ for his campaign. And forthermore I believe he has signed a contract with Muslim nations to destroy us from within. No Christian has the middle name of Hussein. He even has Ramadan dinners once a month in the White House. Yes, he is effectively destroying us from within, and he is doing it by corrupting our future, the youth. Only Almighty God can help us, but it may already too late, as we can see His wrath upon us now in the form of fires, floods, crazy weather, wars, crime, etc.

  • JAL

    Well, Access, did you miss the part where these books were on a recommended reading list for students and teachers in public schools? Offered through an organization supported by a number of larger [formerly] respectable corporations?

    One of those corporations — Kodak — apparently didn’t take a complaint made to it about this very seriously, as the PR person sniffed in a letter that she was sorry the concerned person was offended BY THEIR VALUES. (The countdown on her job has started.)

    I take it you don’t have kids, and have no experience with developmental psychology, or familiarity with the concept of exploitation.

    It’as all about “art” with you.

    Or you are a liar. Or you are truly a crass, hardened idiot.

  • JAL

    A number of commenters above are critical of the shock and anger about the books. (“book burners … you lost.”)

    I didn’t see anyone saying the books be burned. (Though I didn;t read through every single one of the 300+ comments.) Pay better attention.

    Public money is being used to promote these books in public schools. The content transcribed is in most cases inappropriate for children. In a number of cases it represents and normalizes criminal activity.

    As tax payers and consumers we have the right to express our concern and disapproval, and question the suitability of a man who is so far off the curve for a job related to education of young people. His lack of judgment and technicolor ideologizing should disqualify him.

    The fact that he was appointed by the President of the United States, Barack Obama, gives one more piece of evidence that President Obama also lacks judgment and is out of touch with most of America to a degree which is dumbfounding.

    “This is disgusting and I would not blame anyone for stating this is reminiscent of the fall of the Roman Empire. Because it is.”

    History check-
    The debauchery of Nero and his predecessors did not bring about the end of the Roman empire. Rome itself survived for at least four hundred more years, quite well through most of them. The chronological distance between Nero’s rule and the “fall” of Rome is longer than the entire history of the United States.

    Hell, the eastern empire never considered itself to be anything other than the Roman Empire, so to some degree, the Roman Empire survived as a major world power for fifteen hundred years past the point at which you think some naughty sexual behavior killed it.

    Guess what did coincide with the collapse of the Western Roman Empire in the 400’s… the rise of Christianity, along with a growing sense of racial superiority and ethnic “purity” that alienated a lot of the military ranks and border territories.

    “Public money is being used to promote these books in public schools.”

    GSLEN is not the Department of Education, you goofball.

    “Why do children need all this information? I am in my mid 50’s and managed to get by the entire time without knowing how to engage in homosexual sex acts. I know how now, thanks to a book in my daughter’s middle school library.”

    Oh god, you’ve learned something you don’t like, how terrible. If only everyone could stay ignorant, right?

    What makes you think that those books in any way concern you? They are not required reading for anyone. Nobody’s going to say “Dear Timmy, please read this book about gay truckstop rape for your book report.”

    It’s a recommended reading list from a private organization, not a government body, that’s supposed to help youths who are dealing with a sexual identity crisis, rape trauma, abuse from their peers, et cetera. More like “Dear Timmy, so I hear that your uncle raped you and now you feel worthless and suicidal- here, maybe you could read this book from someone else who went through something similar and survived it.”

    Nobody gives a damn whether you or your kids know about these things, and nobody’s going to make your kids read it. For students who are struggling with their own identity, or who’ve been the victims of sexual abuse, those quoted passages are supposed to help them realize that they aren’t alone, that other people have dealt with the same things, and yes, it ruined their lives for awhile too or they faced a lot of hell from everyone around them, but they did survive and then dared to share the story.

  • E

    If any of you were actually reasonable enough to check into things on your own instead of trusting an article that doesn’t even get the number of senators right and makes up fake job titles like “safe school czar”, you might have noticed this on the GLSEN site…

    “Some titles for adolescent readers contain mature themes. We recommend that adults selecting books for youth review content for suitability. The editorial and customer reviews listed at Amazon.com often provide information on mature content.” -GLSEN

    All the material posted for you to flip out about is from the 7-12th grade list for students who are already requesting support from a gay/lesbian group. It’s not a list for class instruction, just a list of material that might somehow help those who need it, and your lovely blogger here has hand-picked whatever he could just to stir you all up by making it sound like first graders are going to be tought about gay sex.

    High schoolers are not children. Legal minors, yes, but minors who can drive cars, minors who are quite likely already having sex with each other, or minors who are at least curious about how it works, and not all of them are interested in heterosexual sex. It’s the age of hormones, what the hell do you expect? When you were in high school, did you try to get your friends arrested if they found Playboys?

    There were pregnant girls in my seventh grade class, I thought they were pretty stupid for getting pregnant that early, but shouldn’t they have access to reading material to help them understand how other teens dealt with pregnancy if they request it?

    The existence and availability of books does not equal mandated instruction. None of you deserve the freedoms of this nation if you can’t even comprehend how libraries work.

    Bulls^^t and you know it.

    The point behind many of the stories is that the experiences described should not have been classified as “abuse” or “molestation” at all. In the third example, about the 13-year-old who spends the year having incessant sex in restrooms with older men, the thesis of the memoir is that the existing moral structure is what made him feel bad about his activities, not the activities themselves. The title of the story from which the passage is excerpted is called “The Beginning of My Worthlessness,” and if you bothered to read the whole thing (which I did), you’d see that the point the author is trying to make is that his self-esteem was damaged by the Christian moral structure his parents imposed on him, whereas the man-boy sex he was experiencing would have been psychologically liberating — had it not been tainted by the unfair feeling that it was “wrong” somehow.

    In fact, if you had bothered to read the full stories for many of these passages, that message is repeated over and over: When a gay teen feels bad about his sexual exploits, the readers is told, the fault lies with society for outdated moral attitudes, not on the fact that the teen was having sex too young. Get rid of the anachronistic insistence on “responsible sex,” and the promiscuous kids’ self-esteem will go way up.

    Re-read the stories and you’ll see that your theory about GLSEN’s reading list being all about therapy for confused and abused kids, and you’ll see that you got it completely reversed. Even in the very first example, Aaron Frick is not ASHAMED of sucking dicks when he was six years old, he’s proud of it, and later in the book he bemoans the time when he was first informed that his behavior wasn’t appropriate. He’s isn’t telling us about being a sex-crazed toddler as a ploy for sympathy or as a memoir of abuse, but rather he tells us to show how liberating sex can be for children.

    It’s true that the Gateway report doesn’t go into the full details of the true agenda of GLSEN, but that’s only because the true agenda takes some explaining, because it is so sophisticated and horror-inducing. It’s not simply about “making kids read porn,” it’s about a conscious attempt to jettison our existing moral code and replacing it with one in which there is NO moral stricture against sex of ANY kind — including sex involving underage kids.

  • PC

    E and Hal, your porn cats out of the scum bag! You like this stuff, you think about it all the time and you want validation. But, like all of the pornography you love and the life style you roll in, it insults the sensibilities of many people. Your utter immersion into the perverse world of freak sex with no boundaries no doubt had a kick start when you were young too, by some monster seeking their sexual gratification. So at an age when you had absolutely none of the wisdom and judgment to handle what’s going on, likely that same monster, took your life and your soul when they cajoled you into their world. As a result, now each day you ask yourself two questions, “How far do I have to go to get my sick jollies, and, who else can I get them with?” Well, unfortunately, the answer is; you are way, way beyond the bounds of anything remotely considered healthy, and second, whomever you can find, which sadly means children. You lying mentally disturbed creeps. The written slop you push to kids is your way of seeking out the vulnerable. Kids have enough trouble understanding healthy sexual boundaries just from the barrage of subtle and overt sex references gratuitously thrown into advertising or cartoons. What is excerpted from your “training manuals” and displayed above is what you believe is titillating and loving. But I don’t.
    By the way, you think my comments are over the top, maybe too personal? Try to be sensitive to how your comments and your “typical reading material” seems to me. I don’t hate you, but what you do, revolts me. More important, when you throw it in my face, I have to consider it. At those times, I pity you, but when you push it to children, my children, I get angry.
    Talk this over with your shrink.

    We have to get the word out! If they shout, we shout louder!! We have to protect the morality of our society and stand up for OUR BELIEFS! I dont want my children being confused and taught these disgusting practices! There are 300,000,000 million Americans and only 1,000,000 GLBT in this country? While to we stand by and allow this to happen? Why dont we rise up and take back our country?

    I dont want to be forced to accept an “act” that I find repulsive and a shcok to the conscience.

    Heres an analogy:

    If youre a person who likes “scary-gory movies” thats fine, I wont bother you and you can watch them in private all day long.. I dont care and I will not disrespect you, taunt you, or teach my children to hate you.

    I however, will not watch “scray-gory movies” and will teach my children that those movies are wrong to watch. Its my right as a human being and as a parent to believe in what I want to beleive in.

    However, if you FORCE me TO WATCH THOSE MOVIES; force me to accept those movies as something that is good to watch; force me to teach my children that they should watch those movies, just because YOU like them.. Then we have a problem. A big Problem. You have just crossed the line and enfringed on my moral, ethical, and core beliefs as a parent, as man, as a human being.

    I am not going to sit around and allow this to happen!! STAND UP MY FELLOW AMERICANS!! STAND UP!!!

    PC, I did not once condone the message of any of these books; I simply thanked E for doing some research on these books and the GLSEN and coming to his own conclusion based on the facts that he had studied personally.

    I don’t understand why you would be so quick to demonize me as a “porn cat out of the scum bag”. I never even gave my opinion on any of this material! And even if I did, and it turned out you didn’t agree with it, this is not how you should respond to people who disagree with you (by lashing out at them).

    PC:

    I see that I misread your first sentence, though the grammar is still incorrect (should be “cat’s” (possessive), not “cats” (plural)).

    The reason that I support E and his comments is because he actually researched the GLSEN, instead of just accepting this blog post’s portrayal of the organization. As he stated, the GLSEN is a “private organization, not a government body, that’s supposed to help youths who are dealing with a sexual identity crisis, rape trauma, abuse from their peers, et cetera.” These are serious emotional and psychological issues that many adolescents face, and the recommended (NOT required) readings that the GLSEN provides are meant to help such people come to terms with human sexuality.

    While some of the subjects that these authors cover may seem strange and perverse at first glance (this blog gave no context for them), they are meant to educate, not corrupt.

    I may write more about this later, but something just came up that I have to attend to.

    Here are the 45 Communist Goals (in part as appropriate for this issue)

    Link: http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    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.”

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    This has been done before – it’s an old play. Are we so obtuse these days we can’t even learn anything from history? Perhaps we deserve what we get…our level of apathy is beyond incredible.

    From an article called “Cultural Marxism” –

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/02/cultural_marxism.html

    “Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools.  Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority.  All of this was accompanied by a reign of cultural terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters. 

    Hungary’s youth, having been fed a steady diet of values-neutral (atheism) and radical sex education while simultaneously encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths.”

    What is it about the Obama administration that they have to tear this country down? Is Kevin Jennings the only guy that the Obama Department of Education could find to be the “safe schools czar?”

    And could there be a clearer indication that the idea of “czars” in government – people making policy who don’t have to stand before Congress before taking office – is one whose time has GONE.

    There HAS to be A book somewhere in the English language that encourages nonviolence toward gays in school without encouraging sexual activity for children (gay or straight). If Kevin Johnson couldn’t find one, he’s clearly not the man for the job of “safe schools czar.” Placing these books in public schools will NOT reduce the level of violence directed at kids who are perceived as gay.

    Impeach this Muslim president. Please. This is where this filth started. He is a Muslim. All Muslims are not terrorists, but the terrorists are Muslims (9/11 was by Muslims only). It is all over YouTube that he is a Muslim. He is a liar. He is not a Christian. The Quran states that America and Israel are their enemies and are to be destroyed. He was born in Kenya, his grandma was there, and she said he was not born in Hawaii, but Kenya. He refuses to show his birth certificate. He is trying to destroy us from the inside.

    Hi Hal,
    May I call you Hal? I’m sorry for typing fast. I’ll slow down. Porn cats are plural like the subject we’re discussing.
    This morning I was quietly reading my email when…wham; I’m accosted by this horrendous subject. It never occurred to me to think through the myriad of convolutions and depravity that reasoned it would be a good idea to put the sexually deviant reading material on the school shelves. I guess it was sort of a no brainer.
    People, do you see. Hal and I are having a conversation about the perversion allowed into our children’s schools by our federal government facilitated by of all things, a teacher’s organization. Sounds gross. It is gross. It makes me mad. Judging from the preponderance of the posts, most of you are mad too.
    Not Hal. Hal sounds like he may have some self esteem issues or maybe I hit a little close to home guessing about his sullied childhood. Hal hopes he can usurp the discussion and defuse my anger by lulling me to sleep with his incoherent blather about grammar and E’s brilliance at checking facts. Gee, I hope he uncovered the fact that shoving these books into our schools while you and I slept is a testament to our lacking vigilance. Hal hopes, I (and you) will go to sleep tonight and never wake up. Sort of like what we have been doing for quite a few years. After all, incremental is a real word.
    But today I was poked for the last time. I’m awake now, I get it. I have had my “tolerance” of and by the gender confused, pushed further and further, year after year. I think I’ll poke back. No more will I hope that someone else stronger, more articulate with more time will fight for me and the kids. I guess I’ll start by checking my kid’s school library tomorrow. No doubt I’ll find some of that trash, (I hope not) and no doubt this battle will be tough, against entrenched, closed minded “progressives” that will try to humiliate me into quitting. But I don’t think I will stop. I’m joining the fight against smut and perversion foisted upon our kids in school.
    This morning I became militant because this is a problem that stinks like road kill. (no offence road kill) Also, I’m Militant because of what happened to my friend Hal. If I had been there for Hal or at least decent counseling in his school when he needed it, Hal’s life could be quite different. I’m sorry Hal, I was not there, but I’m here now.
    Thanks Hal, I love ya’ man.
    P.S. Some of what I’ve said today was meant to be tongue-in-cheek (that’s a reference to humor, Hal) because this business of helping confused kids by supplying them with explicit horror stories of child abuse etc., is incredible. This sad business defies me and demeans all of us. Many of you may have noticed I used no explicit references in my postings. I couldn’t, this is a nightmare. The problem seems overwhelming, but like the people who did this to us, piece by piece day by day, each of us doing a little, we can and must reverse this sick agenda. The only alternative is, it gets worse.

    “PC

    E and Hal, your porn cats out of the scum bag! You like this stuff, you think about it all the time and you want validation. But, like all of the pornography you love and the life style you roll in, it insults the sensibilities of many people. Your utter immersion into the perverse world of freak sex with no boundaries no doubt had a kick start when you were young too, by some monster seeking their sexual gratification. ”

    Nice imagination you’ve got there. I’m heterosexual and to call my sex life “boring” would be an understatement. It’s not my life style and these aren’t my “training manuals”, nice try though.

    However, I do know plenty of people who’ve experienced out-of-the-ordinary, socially-alienating, or outright horrific things far earlier than they should have.

    Here’s one example for you. When I was in sixth grade, my class had a rather troubled girl who came from a very religious family. She had been raped a few years earlier. It was widely spread as gossip, but little was done about it legally, the adults all tried to hush it up, and the other students all called her a “slut” for having been raped and told her that she was probably asking for it.

    Kids are ruthless. She ended up believing them, though… she spiraled down into cocaine use, self-mutilation, and group sex with older kids, IN SIXTH GRADE, presumably because she felt like abuse and self-destruction were the only things she was good for in the world. It was easier for everyone to just brush her off as a freak and a deviant. After several suicide attempts and expulsion from two school districts for her behavior, she slowly recovered and grew up to a vaguely normal life.

    It’s a tragedy that she wasn’t able to get the help and support she needed back at that time. Why not let ’em learn about other people’s mistakes, if they ask, before they blindly go all the way down the same path?

    On a different tack, I knew boys who were attracted to other boys in middle school, but they were frequently beaten up for it and told by their peers that they should just kill themselves because gays are all going to hell anyways.
    One did.

    I’m still amazed that you’re all acting like those books are meant for class instruction. They aren’t. Being available does not make them handbooks for mandated instruction. Did you ever read every book in the library, even the special-interest ones that had absolutely nothing to do with you? Do you assume that they’re all there because the federal government agrees with them, even books like Mein Kampf?

    Many of you are being quite irresponsible by taking the blog author at face value, crying out for a man’s job, and acting like we need to all throw a revolt in the streets, but you’re not doing any research of your own to see if your outrage is based on anything that’s actually happening.

    PC,

    I’ve tried to be polite in my response posts to you, but I am getting a bit fed up with your mocking me in ways that are both untrue and offensive. I do not have self-esteem issues, nor am I a victim of any sort of traumatic events in my childhood. The fact that you would jump at the chance to demonize me so quickly like this suggests to me that you have no interest in even discussing things that are important issues to you and your children with somebody that has a different point of view than you do.

    Being grammatically correct or eloquent has nothing to do with this. This is about finding out the truth about an issue, to understand what the GLSEN truly is and what they really do, and how they actually affect you. Seriously, how do you expect to know the truth about something if you only accept one side’s portrayal of it?

    I probably won’t post here again. If for some reason you want to talk to me, you can email me at [email protected]. I wish the best for you and your children.

  • E

    … that was probably a bad idea, Hal.

    Is anyone truly surprised? Liberals have made their mission to take over the education of American youth since the 60’s when they realized the way to destroy decency in this country was from within its systems. Shame on good American citizens to allow this tripe to make it into our schools; perhaps if we were more concerned with what’s happening in our communities as opposed to who’s dating who in Hollywood, things like this wouldn’t happen – BUT IT’S NOT TOO LATE! Go to your local schools and find out about their reading lists; write to your public officials; there is strength in numbers, do what you can to promote awarness and invite others to join you in your efforts; IT’S NOT TOO LATE if we DO SOMETHING NOW!

  • Jack

    Hal,
    so in your opinion it’s okay for adults to direct underage kids to adult bars (gay or not) to explore their sexuality?

    And I don’t need adults (educators or priests alike) explaining fisting or the calorie count for semen to my underage kids either.

    C’mon..lets get some common sense back into the equation.

  • John

    Goodness i had to scroll through the entire score of comments before i found what i was looking for. I knew that there was no possibility that these were on some sort of required reading list for k-6. And i even knew that these could not be on a required reading list for 7-12.

    E finally enlightened me that these were suggested readings for children that had been prematurely sexualized already. These are books that are meant to give stories of others who have been in the same situation to children who are all too much alone.

    And thank you F for actually posting an educated response to E, you have put in your research and believe that these books are less therapeutic and more anarchist. According to your testimony the books overthrow the current moral structure rather than offer therapy for abused children.

    Hal thank you also for appreciating E’s post. You never said that you agreed that these were books appropriate for children. And E never said these were books for “children” either he said high school kids who already know about much of this material. And on top of this the books are intended for high school kids that request them. Not forced upon them.

    PC unlike F you for some reason attacked the other side completely on falsehood of character. This of course is unappreciated because now the last 10 posts have degenerated slowly into a petty argument when there are real issues here.

    My opinion: The books are available, not forced reading. If a student requested to read them then they could, and if an abused student was reaching out for help these are the books that have been selected to help them. Having not read the books and having never been sexually abused i cannot comment on the effectiveness of these books in therapy for the sexually abused. However i see no problem with having as many available methods of help for children that have been sexually abused. Thats all this is, another option for kids that have been sexually abused, not some sort of forced brainwashing reading list. So stop treating it as such.

  • PC

    Are you daft? I guess a lousy sex life, straight or otherwise could be a reason to embrace the sludge you are trying so hard to pass off as legitimate literature. But it’s pretty lame. Or, how ‘bout this incongruous connection, using a few anecdotes from personal experience to further the concept that reading short porn stories of child abuse will somehow make a little girl feel empowered to get her life right. I guess my first question would be; how much trash would she need to dig through to find that nugget of self help?
    Does anything from the top of the title page to the last of nearly 400 comments strike you as sort of….a common thread? Just guessing, something like eighty to one, readers and contributors resent having smut available to our kids. Maybe you noticed, some don’t waste a lot of words, like Ed, a few posts above. Some declare their positions with several thought out reasons and perhaps offer solutions. The point is, (I’ll use an example first, ok?) These people learned through experience to recognize a pile of dog crap on the side walk for what it is. If they mistakenly step in it, they quickly scrape it off and move on. Unlike you, they don’t spend any time thinking about it, trying to understand its usefulness to society, glorifying it. Now apply what you just learned to what we’re talking about in this forum, ‘Safe Schools Czar’ Kevin Jennings and the organization he founded, GLSEN.
    As a pseudo- intellectual, after apparently considerable research, you couldn’t figure out what most people knew almost instantly. That the slop advocated by GLSEN and others could be passed off as literature for “students who are struggling with their own identity”. (Recognize that quote?) I can safely say, that at least 370 of your peers are pointing out that your efforts resulted in egregious conclusions. Suffice to say, we don’t believe for a moment that GLSEN or that freak Jennings ever had the best interests of our kids in mind. You and they are wrong on a multitude of levels.
    Just for warm and fuzzes, I’ll educate you and validate everyone else at the same time with one of my stories. I used to be a terrible test taker. One day a nice man, older than me, a man I trusted. Took me into a quiet room, alone…..just kidding. What he said was; “Don’t try and figure out why the answer is wrong, study and remember the right one”. I think God created left and right, black and white night and day (etc) so we imperfect humans might have examples of absolutes. Sure, there is the middle, rainbows and dusk and dawn but they are not the absolutes. And that my friends, is why I’m spending so much time on E and Hal (and now Jack). Quick question guys,…..whats the cereal Grape Nuts made of? If you answered neither because you spent all day checking each kernel you would still be forced to conclude that you must have been lied to. We figured that out too, after one bite.
    I’m a neophyte to the world of sexual predators and how they stalk and influence the vulnerable, let alone the peer pressure, as E mentioned and how some kids may be raked through a living hell. Sometimes E, things really are complicated, but this is not one of them. Counseling troubled identity people with porn is wrong. Not convinced, well since we live in a democracy, you may also want to consider the number of people who have expressed themselves here as a way to help you internalize and validate this point.
    And for you Jack…you too are throwing out the minutia hoping to bog down the overall concept, which is, we don’t want stories of degenerate behavior to somehow be construed by any kids to be as form of self help. I’ll remind everyone what we’re talking about.
    “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…”
    Is this what you believe is going to save a kid? Yeah right….. I lifted this from the Full Spectrum above, and I didn’t search. Sure, this was written by a six year old. (Sarcasm) and maybe edited by some slimy ex-con pedophile. Jack, you’re almost a complete dumb ass, not just because of your point of view but because you actually thought you get me to believe you. So get off the “not required reading” jag, kid or adult, this is the lowest form of trash and it should be gone, unavailable or nowhere in sight. A petty argument? You reason that there is value in this waste and try to push it back at me? You are part of the problem.
    Jeff, you’re insane. Do I need a better reason to fight this than your idiotic comments .
    There are several things to be done. First is, show school administrators, legislators and for what it’s worth, our President, solidarity and action for real safety for our kids and get that creepy Jennings out. For Christ’s and ours sake we need a powerful advocate. Second, re-create a system throughout the school system in every state, where adults are trained to in fact re-build trust, assist and direct confused/abused kids toward real and meaningful help and report abuse to police. No question, this is really the most important but also complex and will take time. And third, keep vigilant to confront and obliterate the filth when it tries to come back in the future.
    There is hope. Keep in mind, God also created erasers (levity) so you, E, jack and Hal could change your minds. I hope you do because we need you in this fight but on our side. I’m starting at my kid’s school in a non-confrontational, measured way. (I promise.) I have an initial meeting with the principle tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    “Brevity is the soul of wit.” Remember who said that?
    Based on your post, you seem to be a clever, articulate fellow. Since I seem to be such a block head, maybe you could help me and perhaps a few others out. See, my problem is that I just don’t see any redeeming value in the, let’s to be fair and call it smutty literature. I think Jennings the safe school guy is a farce.
    Go up to the book excerpts above, quote one and describe how you figure that passage could help a teen who has just been raped. Heck, let’s say a block head like me needs assurance that you are really smart, so convince me with your best arguments. Let the forum be the judge.

  • S. Johnson

    I agree that this so called safe school czar needs to be canned. I know there were comments about all the dirty details and how some of your viewers thought it was too much but how can you make an argument if you don’t have all the facts. So don’t change a thing. I don’t know if people are not paying attention to their history but Hitler did the same thing back in the 30’s. This is how they plan to change America to a communist nation or better yet a Dictatorship. Nothing is by accident with this administration. They have been building the framework under our noses for years and they will not stop until they achieve complete control. Join your local tea party group, 9-12 group, school boards, etc. We have got to stand up and voice our outrage now, no more voting and going about your business until the next elections. Stay involved and follow the word because at this pace you will see hell, fire and brimstone come down from the sky. There are far more people in this country that consider themselves conservatives than liberals so ban together and beat them at their own game. It’s time to take our country back.

  • Murdoc

    Yeah, I don’t believe that any book containing material that explicit would be made mandatory for kids to read. Regardless of the fact that such books may be on the list, it’s the teacher who decides which book from the list the students will have to read, and if they found a book with such material in it they’d likely inform the other teachers, a stink will be raised, and books would simply be removed from the list. If this kind of material makes it into the class room anyways, parents will find out, n’ then they’ll raise the stink.

    When we have places that considered Harry Potter to be Satanism and expressed themselves by conducting book burnings, material like this would inspire lynch mobs to be formed. So long as there’s someone with a brain deciding what goes on the curriculum, it’s painfully obvious that the material that has been shown here would be detrimental to their cause, so I honestly don’t believe that excerpts like the ones shown would ever make it into the classroom.

    If these books do make it in the classroom, I’m willing to bet they’re edited.

  • Jack

    PC,
    did you even read my post?? Before your next rant..try actually reading these responses, okay?

    I don’t care for GLSEN at all. I also don’t approve of handing out event brochures with Adult Marketing Material to underage kids. (Gay Bar or Straight Bar, Bath House or Brothel…whats the difference??? Children shouldn’t be exposed to any of this stuff.)

    And I’ll repeat..no adult should ever describe or demonstrate to any underage kid the best way to fist, or swallow semen…abused kid or not. That is sick.

    Any academic that would support this sexualized crap won’t ever see my kids in their class.

    But what does GLSEN have to lose…since most parents expect the school system to raise our kids anyway.

    We’ll reap what we sow.

    BTW Jeff,

    I’m more outraged by the audio recordings and literature from some of the actual GLSEN sponsored events.

  • jerseygma

    Gerry (post 124)
    One would have to be a moron think that these books could possibly have any value so great that it would offset the outrageous disgustingness of the passages contained within them. These passages go far beyond what could be considered helpful to ANY child in describing the prurient details of the acts between children and between children and adults. These are not attempts to answer age-appropiate questions that children may have, they are an effort to sexualize children just as the author of the article said.

    I was a child once, and of course there was curiosity and playing of doctor, but the level of activity described in these books and its significance for the future life of the children involved is totally distorted.

    I see this appointment by the current administration as an effort to promote an “anything goes,” completely relativistic
    type of society. This bears an uncomfortable resemblence to Marxism – Marx believed that there were no absolute moral standards but the each social/economic group forms its own – no one is more valid than any other.

    This is a time to draw a line in the sand – we must demand the firing of Kevin Jennings.

  • PC

    No worries, I had read your posts and was familiar with your positions. I don’t know what this sites policies are for allowing or removing particularly rasty comments but between refreshing and posting, an “evil jack” was there and disappeared. In addition to threats his point was how these auto-biographic vignettes were helpful to children. I couldn’t let that go by. No one will mistake you for him. Just as I am sure nobody will co-opt PC. Keep up the fight.
    I was thinking about this yesterday and it’s appropriate to mention it now. My brother and my brother in law, who are both gay, give me assurances that they to believe that pushing kids is heinous. Perhaps it’s because they were assaulted by a priest the other by a close friend of the family as young teens. But both are good men and I enjoy their company and love them. I abhor the life style but love them. My other father in law is a pedophile. His wife caught him in the act of assaulting my 1.5 year old daughter. (My wife was visiting her mom, mom babysits, freak comes home early from work, mom walks in at nap time. Catches freak in the act) apparently a deal was cooked to keep it quiet; year later mom broke down spilled it to me and wife.
    What these militant pedophile freaks lurking in this forum seem to think is they have blended in. They couldn’t be more obvious to me and than if they were painted red with two heads. These guys will never change and never stop selling their bizarre beliefs. This battle can never be won. Every day we have to fight to marginalize them.
    You are a good man Jack.

    I’m just wondering of all you who are shocked, SHOCKED at the contents of these books…have you ever read a great book? Because nothing in here is more scandalous than in, for instance, Catcher in the Rye or Slaughterhouse 5 (both of which have been banned before, probably by similarly illiterate parents who think it’s someone else’s job to protect their kids from ideas they deem dangerous).

    Or, you know, just check out Ezekiel 23:20: There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

    Or pretty much the entire Song of Solomon.

    Unless your problem isn’t the sex, it’s the gay, in which case I really can’t help you beyond saying “get over yourselves.”

  • CatholicMom

    I’m a political/education activist. I will tell you what you need to do: Contact your STATE SCHOOL Board members and request that THEY ask for Jennings’ resignation.
    Contact your Federal legislators and request the same from them.

    Those of you with kids in the public school system, LOOK at the the CURRICULUM. Expecially the anti-bullying curriculum. IF there is any references to homosexuals get rid of it and demand it be replaced with a curriculum that does not have an enumerated list of those who are protected. (all children deserve NOT to be bullied) Also check the resources of the program, often times they are linked to GLSEN, and other gay activist groups.

    If you pull your kids out of a public school DO NOT just walk away. YOUR tax dollars are paying for this garbage. You still have a right to examine the materials and voice your opinions.

    My kids have never been in a public school yet in my district, all School Board Members know me, so do the Administrators. Why? Because I constantly write letters to the editor bringing up controversial material that is in the school.

    It’s MY money and I will not sit quietly as they waste it on garbage.

    Too many parents pull their kids out and walk away silently. NOPE, we need to take back these schools WITH or WITHOUT our kids in them.

    Parents have become far too complacent and they need to get up off of their butts and attend school board meetings and run for school board.
    DO SOMETHING!

  • Concerned Parent

    This is absolutely shocking, and it’s not about gay v. straight. Child porn is 100% illegal, so how in the world can sexually explicit stories about minors as young as elementary school age ever possibly be included on a public school recommended reading list?! And at a national level?! The American people need to know what their children are being exposed to and what their tax money is funding. Unbelievable.

  • “I’m just wondering of all you who are shocked, SHOCKED at the contents of these books…have you ever read a great book?”

    Ash (and in turn anyone else supporting his point of view), are you implying that these GLSEN books are great? I find your comment here disgusting, notwithstanding that I have not read those two books you mentioned, nor do I want or need to.

    “Or, you know, just check out Ezekiel 23:20: There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.”

    If I were you, I would read II Pet. 3:16, about those who twist scripture to their own desires and destruction. A cursory reading of that scripture from Ezekiel is that this is a prophetic word from God and NOT in any way, shape or form an endorsement of perverse behavior. It is a judgment upon the nation of Israel for its multitudes of sins and done in symbolic form. Trust me. I have a degree in Biblical studies and years of ministry.

    “Or pretty much the entire Song of Solomon.”

    The Song of Solomon is a beautiful book of love and yes, there are a couple places where someone could get their prurient interests stirred up. A woman’s breasts are described in a very ravishing but not illicit form. But you cannot honestly glean any form of debauchery in that book.

    “Unless your problem isn’t the sex, it’s the gay, in which case I really can’t help you beyond saying “get over yourselves.”

    I have a 13 year old autistic child and he has a lot of interest in young ladies. Unfortunately, due to his condition, he doesn’t know how to channel his interests and is not in any condition to be dating. However, if I find he’s coming home with a book on sex and particularly one depicting unnatural behavior (which is what “gay” sex is – unnatural) or any sexual activity, particularly among preteen kids (which is what Jennings endorses), then there’s going to be hell to pay and it’s not going to just be from the Lord in the next life (Matt. 18:6).

    And if I find Jennings sticking his nose in the Indiana school district I reside and orders the district to keep such perversion on school shelves, he will personally face my wrath and you can interpret that any old way you want.

    I am disappointed in my parenting of my son and if I could rewrite history and have a do over, I would. I am not the most angelic person, nor am I the most prudish. But I know unnatural sexual activity when I see it and thankfully so do probably 90+% of the posters in this forum do as well. And I will not tolerate it in any way, shape or form.

    Methinks you don’t have children. If you do and you feel the way you say you do, I pity you. But if you don’t and you plan to some day, I pray you really think about what you have said and what you think is acceptable.

    I can cite you a lot of books that are great and all you have to do is go back to Shakespeare, Bunyan, Milton, Eliot and others to apply that adjective to their writings. Jennings’ rubbish does not qualify, not even remotely so. It disturbs me if you think it does.

  • “I’m a political/education activist. I will tell you what you need to do: Contact your STATE SCHOOL Board members and request that THEY ask for Jennings’ resignation. Contact your Federal legislators and request the same from them.”

    I totally second that motion, Catholic Mom, but we need to go further and insist on the resignation of school education chief Arne Duncan as well. He’s a friend of Jennings and pushed for a homosexual school in Chicago prior to the usurper naming him education secretary – you can Google this information. And Duncan is a friend of Obama. They all need to go. They knew damn well about Jennings’ background before appointing him. Only a deliberate dunce would deny it. It’s on their watches. We need to continue to demand Congress purge America of these three stooges of the left, no matter how long it takes and no matter how much obfuscation those in Washington throw back at us. Do not take NO for an answer from Congress. This administration is pushing perversion. Remember, Obama once said so-called “age appropriate” sex education should be taught to our kids, starting when they enter the system. We now have a pristine example of what the usurper was referring to.

    The rest of your points are just as sound and merit no additional comments from me other than this – readers, do what this woman says. If you own property, you’re paying the salaries of school personnel in your district, regardless of whether your children (if you have any) are still in the public system. You have a right and obligation to speak up and I pray you all do before it’s too late – and it’s just minutes from midnight.

    @Hoosier

    Your son would never have to read any of the GLSEN’s books because THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED READING. They are offered to students who have faced extensive sexual and emotional abuse, be it from people in their past or from their own peers.

    And in response to your comment about gay sex being unnatural… it isn’t. Many animals have been observed to exhibit homosexual behavior, some almost exclusively. The idea that just because two people of the same sex and cannot produce children does not make their love any more unnatural than yours for your husband.

    I am a 40 year old gay man and I read stuff like that when I was 13. I had sex when I was 13. Little boys and adolescent boys diddle each other all the time. Of course most of them turned out to be straight…
    At any rate, reading books like this (1 in 10 would be a good example) really helped me as a child.

    They were saying that GLSEN mostly teaches these children how to protect themselves from bullies but I want to show them the truth. Please add links to GLSEN to these books.

    A subtle transformation is happening: Our schools are becoming the killing fields of the soul.

    As the threshold of expectation is lowered to nil, the number sociopaths churned out into society increases. Sociopaths have no moral or conscientious restraints and quickly float to the top as they brush aside or trample those in their way. They form alliances with like-minded sociopaths to strengthen their positions until they alone have power and scoff and the weak minded who are guided by love and conscience.

    Is this where we are at? Read Psalm 73 and 39 for soul encouragement.

    Christianity has bred the freest society that even existed. The hearts of men have been allowed to pour out with no editing. We now see what the heart is capable of, this is good. Now comes the harvest. No man makes the judgment where you will reside for eternity. Only you do, alone, in a room with God and weight of His omniscience peering into your soul. No place to hide, no place to run, no lie or misdirection to shade you from the blazing light of reality. In that Hour you will decide your eternal fate.

    I would just like to comment about the excerpts themselves. It is very apparent that parents of their generation where not being vigilant when it comes to public restrooms and friend time. I doubt it has gotten any better in the last few years. We as parents need to be on guard at all times to insure that our kids are not exposed to this behavior. Especially for our boys, who statistically have a greater chance of being Gay if they are molested as a boy. And who can deny that these excerpts depict molestations of very young kids by kids their own age as well as adults.

    This is not just expressing sexuality as I am sure some will say…. this is acting out on inappropriate things done or shown to these kids. So add to your list… protect your kids from their friends.

    This Safe Schools Czar is just another in a seemingly endless line of those appointed/selected by the Obama administration who seem to be uniquely qualified for their new positions due to their disregard and disdain for the very posts they have assumed. Safe Schools? How does the promotion of these books enhance safety in our schools? How does it help others to be tolerant? How does it assist teachers and students to better understand and to respect the individual? It does not. The reading list is an attempt to lend acceptance to behavior which is morally abhorent.

  • dave b

    Ho sick is this. Jennings is like the creepy older guy hanging around the bathroom…he and his ilk get a perverse pleasure in exploiting children…in listening…encouraging….reveling in these sick and pitiful stories. These people are the face of evil. This is what is happening to our country. What a profound shame.

  • terence choong

    shibumiNo | #33 you’re right. These people are impervious to reasoning or anything good. In the name of ‘rights’ and ‘freedom’ they are purveying their filth. The only way is to hit them where they still have some feelings. So I support you in calling for the boycott of companies or organizations supporting them like, as you said, (please check to make sure)
    “Citigroup, IBM, Perrier, Kodak and JP Morgan” et al.

    I can’t believe the books listed here would even be remotely considered as recommended reading for a child who had been molested or abused. The message there is that the appropriate response to being victimized by some sexual pervert is to immediately and heartily begin indulging in the perversive activity, yourself. Incredible.

    As a child and young teen, I was regularly molested by my stepfather, until I was 14 and my mom finally decided I wasn’t lying and stepped in to stop it. She had to catch him in the act before she believed me. By then, I’d been suffering it for at least 11 years. She did nothing about it, though. She stayed with him, forgave him, and she gave me no sympathy. I became the disgusting one in her eyes, not him!

    What he did to me did not make me interested in men or other boys, or cause me to be in any way promiscuous. It terrified me; it physically hurt me, and it made me feel sick at the thought of ANY kind of sex, homo- or heterosexual. That sickness is with me to this day. No amount of gay cavorting could ever take that sickness away from me. It could do nothing but make it worse. What this man did to me ROBBED me of my ability to have a normal family life. He ROBBED me of the chance to be a father. He ROBBED me of my ability to do my human duty in perpetuating my species. He ROBBED me of self-confidence and self-esteem. He ROBBED me of any chance of ANY KIND of normal existence.

    I’ve suffered extreme depression, anti-social tendencies and an overall inability to feel comfortable in any group of people, of any gender. I sought solace in drugs and alcohol, when no one around me cared enough to help me. I attempted suicide, several times, during and after the abusive period. My entire life was sacrificed in the name of HIS perversity. We punish other kinds of thieves. Why not this kind? This kind is far, far worse than those who steal mere money and material things.

    Had someone shown me one of these books as a method of “helping” me get over that abuse, I would have committed suicide in despair of ever being all right, again. Even now, more than 30 years later, I feel nothing but SHAME and DISGUST over what was done to me, though I know now that I was not to blame for it. To think someone would even SUGGEST that what that monster did to me was normal or in any way acceptable–which is what they’d be doing by offering these child pornography type books as a method of dealing with the abuse–is beyond belief. It isn’t just thoughtless and cruel; it is plainly and indisputably EVIL.

    No, what might have helped me, had anyone actually cared about what happened to me, would have been for some caring person to remove me from that situation and punish my stepfather for the abuse. It might have helped for the caring person or persons to help me understand, early on, that it was not my fault, that what he did to me was wrong and that he’d be punished for it. To suggest reading a book of some child molester’s memoirs to me would be to suggest the solution to my problem was to BECOME the monster that hurt me. What kind of logic is that? If a woman is raped, would you tell her she needs to go out and wantonly rape others? If a man is shot by a robber, would you tell him to go out and shoot everyone he sees? If your car is stolen, is the remedy for you to go steal someone else’s car?! Certainly not. Why, then, would any sane person even suggest that a molested child should read up on the glorified exploits of the same kind of monsters who molested them? It makes no sense, whatsoever.

    We’re going to have to get off our collective behinds, America, and SEE what is truly happening in our world. Apathy is more deadly than a million nuclear bombs. One way or another, the cleansing fire is coming, and it will not be kind to nor sparing of those who stood by and did nothing as Evil marched to triumph on the skulls of our children.

  • kathy

    I started to get tears in my eyes as I started reading this. This is just terrible. How could our president of The United States of “America” allow such horror into our schools. This man is evil, it shows in his face. I would never ever allow my child to read such filth. These books should be burned. Any school who allows or demands a child to read this horror should be punished. Little children, teens, adults shouldnt read this horror. God bless our children and protect them form all this evil.

  • Wes

    I believe this is just a small sample of whats coming. People in this country need to get back to JESUS! That is the ONLY answer to this problem. I don’t see how God can let this country go on much longer. “Even so, come Lord Jesus.”

  • The whole purpose of the homosexual “movement” has always been the ultimate goal to have legal accepted sex with children.
    This reading material they are pushing in public schools amounts to nothing less than child molestation.

  • ABC, CBS, and NBC are all boycotting this story.

    This is a story that MUST be heard.

    I urge everyone to contact these major new organizations and demand that they cover this story.

  • Jackknife

    As a gay person, I’m offended. This is nothing but promotion of Pedophilia, and Nambla Reading Material. The Bits about Prostitution aside, I don’t (have a problem with that)… but so many of them have rape fantasies and I don’t recall ever playing Doctor to the point where people would be Blowing each other… Sick books by Sick writers most of them.

    These writers are about as unhealthy gay sex life as one can get.

  • What Story?

    You all need to settle down.

    These stories are not advocating child rape or underage sexuality. The fact is, these things happen. Personally, I think these books are as tactful of a way possible to discuss these real life issues with your children. I think you’ll be surprised by how much your children can think for themselves when given a controversial subject.

    Lolita, the book, is one of the 20th century’s absolute best works in the English language. And it happens to be about a scandalous man-girl sexual relationship. Should we ban it, like Iran does? Should we burn it in the streets? Or do we read it, and discover that it does not advocate for these horrendous things at all.

    The books you have listed in this post certainly challenge your morals, but I contend that any conscious teenager given the right forum can easily separate advocacy from intellectual pursuit.

    Can you?

  • Jim

    Of course perverted way of living that is now being choked down the throats our school children, as well as into their eyes and ears, came into humanity long ago. As sad a commentary as that is for human beings that God created. In my way of judging the matter the worst of it all is that our nation elected a man whose ideas were known to be very contrary to the heritage of those who want to live in America as it was (meant to be!).

    Many advocate that, even in America, people can be perverse personally, BUT to be allowed to publicly promote such goes WAY BEYOND what is acceptable in a descent society.

    I am a Christian and I believe God gave us the Bible to help us get back on track when we go astray. I hope the wayward American who now advocate such an illicit life will come to their senses and repent. It seems however many matters in life have to worse before they get better. Are you a child of God that prays that His will be done? Please pray for our rulers?

  • Erzo

    I… can’t believe you people.

    You people are so wrapped up in your religion that you have given up the ability to think logically.

    “The gays are out to destroy society!”
    “The world is run by perverts!”
    “Everyone who is not a Christian is evil!”

    This kind of thing makes me really angry. All Christians seem to do is discriminate against and shun those whose beliefs do not agree with their own. It’s a hateful, evil thing to do, and it’s a behavior that I think is a primary cause of general suffering worldwide.

    You people are fakes. Christianity does not teach what you pretend it does.

  • Yes, Erzo, you nailed it. How dare we protest the schools suggesting that sex between adults and children is OK. What, is that interfering with your social life?

  • NoNeedForThat

    You people are funny; so it’s always the president’s fault for anything? Kevin Jennings seem more at fault.

  • Kyle Mark Waal

    Oh noes!!!!! Sex!!!! AHHHHHH

    It makes me warm inside to know that people like you are dying out fast.

  • Ashley

    And thats the problem!!!!!! People like YOU who think “Its just sex, who cares” ITS NOT JUST SEX!!! Did you READ any of the content above at all?!?! Incest, pedophila, sexual perversion etc… or are you just apart of the masses who have become so desensitized to the evils of this world? Is SEX a bad thing? NO.. but do I want my child to be corupted by the things that I just read above and not give them an opportunity to view sex in a healthy manner?? You are damn right I do. This country has become way to lackadaisical about sex. It makes me sick.

  • Ashley

    No, you were right the first time.

  • IM All Right

    All I can say is that these passages often mimicked the experiences I had growing up. And, guess what? I am a married and straight male. I think all the experimentation and other experiences is what defined for me what I liked and didn’t like. As it turns out, I didn’t like the penis and I did like the vagina. I turned out all right. My soul isn’t damned for all of eternity. I don’t go around molesting children. I merely had some sexual experiences as a minor, enjoyed them as one is supposed to, and got on with my life. Some of my experiences were with older men and some with older women. But, so what? If I don’t care, why the hell should you care? I think what traumatizes children the most when it is discovered they are having these experiences is the reaction of those around them. The puritanical disgust which can’t be disguised is the worst thing a child should see on an adult’s face. THAT scars them more than having oral sex with an adult.

  • Andrew G Mooney

    Were your sexual experiences consensual or enforced upon you? Do you seriously think children are capable of giving consent? You are correct in stating that precocious sexual experience, whether “consensual”, abusive or a mixture of both, does not have a causative link with becoming an abuser, nor with a necessarily doomed psychology and ruined life.

    When you write “I merely has some sexual experiences as a minor, enjoyed them as one is supposed to, and go on with life”, my alarm bell goes off, as you seem to be accepting a cultural landscape where children are used as sex toys by adults and there’s no problem if the children ‘consent’. I enjoyed prodigious amounts of precocious sex and would have laughed at anyone that said I was being ‘abused’. However, I was emotionally immature even if physically, I was “12 going on 21”. I have a very different view of those who knew my chronological age to those who didn’t, who I seduced.

    You write “If I don’t care, why the hell should you care?” I care because I care about other children enough that I want them to be safe from adult sexuality. The % of children who are sexually AND emotionally mature at an early age is so small that no policy can be built upon their experiences. I happen to think I’m one of that small cadre, but would never extrapolate from my particular history to public policy. Physical maturity for most does not correlate with emotional maturity and leaves them vulnerable to exploitation.

    I write honestly about my own life, not like absurd boaster rapper Chris Brown rejoicing in ‘losing his virginity’ to rape at 8 by a 14 year old girl. I would never endorse, condone or promote anyone who lived as I did as a child and teenager, rather I write honestly about my life as a warning for the unwary and a guide for the perplexed caught up in a maze of adult sexual deceit. I agree that the victim shaming/blaming of children is not helpful, and any attempts to disregard abuse as evidence of Lolita-ism should be firmly challenged. Children who are sexually exploited by adults are always damaged by that experience, because it is a betrayal of trust and human solidarity across generations.

    I agree with you that it’s not necessarily life ruining unless there is victim blaming/shaming/revulsion; and succumbing to and endless victim script of breakdowns, therapy and self-hatred can become a destructive self-fulfilling prophecy. I personally wasn’t physically harmed in any way by early sexual experiences and, at the time, enjoyed them. However, as I reached emotional maturity, I began to reflect on the morality of those who had ‘shared’ their erotic desires with me, exploiting my rare precocious mix of physical and emotional maturity. I decided it was, in some cases, abuse as they couldn’t possibly have calculated my inner emotional and mental states.

    That led to me ‘outing’ a particularly odious perpetrator, only to be subjected to abuse of my person and due process by the community, police and courts. It took 4 decades to bring this particular perpetrator to justice, and I can firmly state that it was the process of bringing the issue to trial that caused me extreme damage: not the initial sexual abuse.

    I hope you have not repressed the visceral emotions underlying physical pleasure. I was very lucky in that my first sexual experiences were not age-inappropriate or abusive: I cannot imagine how hard it is for anyone who does not have any memory of consent, to cope with the betrayal of trust that is ‘consensual adult-child sexual behaviour’. Your final line reveals more about your situation than you realise..take care.

  • Professor2

    Words fail. This is more disgusting and perverted than I imagined it could possibly be. I always knew gay males behaved like this but had no idea they behaved like this as PRETEENS.

  • Steve

    How can I sign up for Al-Qaeda please?

  • Steve

    Raping children is still illegal. Doesn’t matter if you pedophiles have books now.

  • Steve

    Yeah, we are supposed to rape children. You are sick. I can’t believe how many child molesters there are in America.

  • Steve

    I didn’t know what sex was until I was 16. My girlfriend’s father had the police officially give me an order of no contact. They said under the law, even kissing would have been considered rape of a child. She was 16 too. I was told we must wait until 21 to date.

  • Kyle Mark Waal

    But where are kids getting raped? All those stories were essentially kids “playing doctor:” with one another. If it were a boy and a girl, you’d consider it normal, harmless (if a bit unsettling) childhood exploration. But because it involves two boys kissing, you guys all freak the hell out and bring paedophilia into it out of nowhere. There is no established link between paedophilia and homosexuality. Most convicted child molesters identify as heterosexual. Sorry.

  • caveman

    I find this stuff quite disturbing. On the other hand though kids will be kids but I don’t mean young kids as depicted in most of these I’m talking 13+. What they need to be taught is that they really shouldn’t be messing around but if they do they need to do so safely and willingly. The way I was taunt what willingly meant when I was 13-14 was that if I felt uncomfortable with what was going on or felt like it was wrong that I shouldn’t do it or allow it to happen. I still don’t think it’s appropriate for an adult to mess around and was taught that as well that if I was going to fool around with anybody that they needed to be my age. My parents almost word for word when theygave me “the talk” said we don’t really want you fooling around until you’re 18 but if you are don’t mess around with anyone younger than you or anyone that’s over 18 and be safe and use appropriate protection. Even when I started hanging around girls and “dating” their parents would tell me the same thing. A girl I was with for several years when we started dating her parents talked to me and said we really don’t want you and our daughter doing anything more than kissing but we also understand and that if you guys do mess around be safe and use protection.They knew kids in their teens will be kids and they were right if I had found any girls my age that had wanted to fool around I probably would have but I didn’t go out of my way to try to fool around and most certainly never pressured anyone into something they didn’t want to do the most that ever happened while I was under 18 were female friends of mine showing me their assets. Which is also why I got started later than most in that department. I think being brought up like that is why I didn’t get really promiscuous even after I was 18 in fact I’ve only been with 3 women including my new wife. And that seems to be the case with most things if you talk to kids and tell them how you feel about it and don’t just tell them don’t do that they’re a lot more likely to listen whether it be sex drugs alcohol or whatever else.
    I was given a similar speech about drugs and alcohol as well. My parents said they don’t really want me using any drugs or alcohol but if I did to be responsible and not drive or anything and that they really didn’t want me to do any synthetic or processed drugs so basically just marijuana and mushrooms and that if I did anything particularly mushrooms to only be around people I truly trusted. And I listed because of that upbringing. I never did any synthetic/processed drugs and most certainly never any iv drugs like heroin and even as prevalent as it was and is meth. And back to the original subject I was told by both my parents as well as gf parents that if we did fool around that we both needed to be sober.

  • RedRedMane

    What I cannot understand is the BIASES in this highly questionable corriculum!!! If this is supposed to be an essential part of modern “Sex-Ed”, howcome it is about 500%GAY and about 500% LESBIAN!!! It is only about 30% “transgender”, and not even 2% of it is even “slightly” bi-sexual!!!! It seems that even “bisexuals” are NOT COVERED by the new supposedly gender-friendly sexual liberation provisions!!! There is not even ONE story in the above prescribed Sex-Ed corriculum that is even “bi-sexual”, let alone HETEROsexual!!!! It’s all strictly GAY!!! All 1,000% of it!!! Even “bi-sexuals” seem to have been systematically EXCLUDED from any and all gay-rights legal “provisions!!!” The “suck-ass-result” of this bias is a new British teaching called “equal in stature!” This suck-ass teaching goes like this: If two BOYS get caught “making out in the closet”, it isn’t rape, child molestation, or even “inappropriate!” It’s okay because they’re GAY, and SINCE they are both male, they are “equal in stature!!!” ( Neither one is “weaker!!!” ) Same thing goes if two little GIRLS get caught “making out in the closet!!!” But,… BUT!,… If a boy so much as KISSES a female classmate, ….”OH MY GAWD!!! JIMMIE SEWEL JUST “SEXUALLY ASSAULTED” A DEFENSELESS …. “little girl!!!!!!” “WE OWE IT TO “OUR KIDS” TO MAKE SURE HE CAN NEVER DO THAT “HEINOUS ACT” EVER AGAIN!!!” JIMMIE SEWEL IS A “MONSTER!!!” “A HABITUAL “SEX-OFFENDER!!!” THANK ALMIGHTY GAWD WE NIPPED THIS ONE IN THE BUD!!!”
    That little boy will be DAMN lucky if he does not have to register ax a fkn SEX OFFENDER for the rest of his natural life!!! He found out the HARD WAY that “straight people” ARE NOT COVERED by the new “sexual equality” provisions!!!! Even ‘bi-sexuals’ aren’t covered!!! We “heterosexual” stags are left completely OUT IN THE COLD, and we are constantly being “penalized” for even the “slightest” sexual infractions!!! Where’s this sexual “equality” of which the Gay-Straight alliances so often speak of?!!?! We STRAIGHT people ARE NOT EXPERIENCING ANY OF IT!!!!

  • RedRedMane

    Kyle, I have absolutely NO idea what DESERT ISLAND you’ve been living on!!! Gay, Lesbian, and TransGender people are the ONLY people experiencing liberation due to these psychotic “sex offender laws!!!” Gay rights coalitions have paved a marvelous “road” … but only for the GAY children and teens growing up in Hurtville America today. All the aformentioned “curriculum” contains exclusively GAY + LESBIAN stories. Again Kyle, I don’t know how what “desert island” you’ve spent most of your life marooned on. The ONLY kids and teenagers who are being encouraged to act out sexually are the GAY ones due to the vast number of liberties afforded them through “gay rights” legislations!!! That “coverage” EXCLUDES even most bisexuals!!! You seem to be under the delusion that the “opposite” is true. You, like all too many radical progressive gays, have this “persecution complex” when it’s actually the HETEROSEXUALS who are being persecuted under the new, arcane “sex offender” laws, which are fkn 200% ZERO tolerance!!! What? Do you think that the authority-pigs are going after all the heterosexuals in an attempt to round up “GAYS??!!!?” If so, it means that YOU, sir, need some SERIOUS psychiatric help. We heterosexuals are the ones the authorities are going AFTER!!! In schools today, it’s the HETEROSEXUAL kids who are filling up the “sex offender” registries!!! It is THEY who are being “penalized” , NOT the gays or the lesbians!!! They are experiencing all the great sexual freedoms that the free-love 1960s had once promised EVERYONE via exclusive “gay rights” provisions! So now, only GAY adolescent sexuality is being encouraged in our once great nation’s schools! Bisexuals are only protected when they screw someone of the same gender, and heterosexuals are S**T OUT OF LUCK!!! But oh how “persecuted” you GAYS and LESBIANS are!!!
    What do ” I ” think? I think it’s time leave that “desert island” you’ve wasted so much of your life on.
