Right-wing lawyers: HRC anti-bullying program indoctrinating kids

by Nick Langewis, Page One Q

Representatives of a conservative legal organization contend that a program aiming to foster a healthy learning environment is actually a Trojan horse for the "homosexual agenda."

"The Human Rights Campaign can say what they want, but the program speaks for itself," said Alliance Defense Fund legal counsel Austin Nimocks on Tuesday, "and it's designed to get kids to believe that their sex is not a biological fact, but an inconvenience that's changeable based on how they feel."

"You have the largest homosexual advocacy group in the country now attacking one of the largest public school districts in the country in order to affect the most children that they can with one blow," Nimocks continued.

The Alliance Defense Fund has written a letter of "warning" to Minneapolis school officials about the perceived insidiousness of HRC's "Welcoming Schools" guide.

"As you are aware," the letter opens, "your schools have been targeted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) as one of their pilots for instituting its 'Welcoming Schools' project. HRC defines itself as the 'largest national gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization.' In other words, HRC represents only 4.1% of those adults (not children) in America who define themselves as either gay or lesbian. We respectfully request that this memorandum be considered on behalf of the remaining 95.9% of the population, including all children."

The letter goes on to say that HRC's program introduces controversial subject matter on gender identity and "unproven scientific theory that runs counter to American cultural and scholastic interests" to students. Nimocks and colleague Brian Raum also compare the fostering of free gender variance and expression among the "afflicted" to denying a schizophrenic access to medications.

Compiled in response to concerns from parents and teachers, "Welcoming Schools," currently being tested in three school districts including Minneapolis, offers guidelines to parents, guardians, teachers and administrators on promoting an inclusive and welcoming elementary school environment for all students, regardless of their gender expression or family configuration.

"In typical style, the 'conservative right' is distorting the truth," Ellen Kahn, director of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Family Project, told PageOneQ. "The Welcoming Schools Guide is a comprehensive resource designed to transform elementary schools into fully welcoming learning environments for all students and their families. The Guide is meant to reflect the real fabric of our diverse communities -- children raised by single parents, grandparents, multicultural families, 'traditional' families, and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender parents.

"Most anti-bullying resources are generic in their approach to teaching respect, and generally leave GLBT families out of the picture. What makes the Welcoming Schools Guide unique is its inclusion of GLBT families and tools for talking about GLBT issues in ways that make sense for younger children. As a result, the Welcoming Schools Guide is receiving praise from leaders in education who value a broad approach to diversity issues and are looking for new approaches to creating safe, respectful learning environments for all."

Again, all they want is the gay kids to feel there not right, and "fix" them.

It is I think a Trojan agenda of "self-hate".

If they can get people to hate themselves for being "different" than they become easier targets for "help."

Such "help" is itself a Trojan for control of other people's lives.
