It is a sad fact of life that our most vulnerable and most innocent members are most at risk of exploitation and abuse. Children need all the protection they can get from any sort of harm or predatory assaults. If we fail to protect our children we can no longer call ourselves a civilised society.
Another fact of life is that the homosexual lifestyle is a dead-end lifestyle. By its very nature it is a sterile, barren lifestyle. Homosexuals cannot reproduce, so the only way they can continue is by recruitment. And there has been a sad history of older homosexuals recruiting younger people into their orbit.
Indeed, many homosexuals speak of being introduced to the homosexual lifestyle by someone older, while they were still in their teens. Consider this representative quote: “Nobody is fooled when we proclaim that the gay movement has nothing to do with kids and their sexuality. . . . Many of us – both women and men – had our first homosexual experience with partners who were older than ourselves”. Indeed, one study found that 75 per cent of homosexual men report their first homosexual experience before the age of sixteen. This compares to 22 per cent of heterosexual men reporting their first heterosexual experience.
A well known saying affirms that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. Homosexual activists know this all too well. As one lesbian put it, “Whoever captures the kids owns the future”. Thus we find the constant attempts by homosexual activists to influence children.
There have been many such attempts lately to get access to young people. For example, in the United States the New Jersey Supreme Court has ordered the Boy Scouts to admit homosexuals. The Girl Scouts have also caved into Political Correctness. Indeed, according to some Scout staffers, one in three of the Girl Scouts’ paid professional staff is lesbian. And in the United Kingdom, the English Scout Association recently lifted the ban on homosexuals becoming troop leaders.
In Australia a number of homosexual activities have made many conclude that children are indeed being targeted by older homosexuals. Several years ago a large outcry arose over the discovery of homosexual swap cards. The cards, which featured sexually explicit photos, pictures and cartoons, were part of a safe-sex campaign.
Also, in a recent edition of a Melbourne homosexual newspaper, there was a large article entitled “Comics come out”. The article described how mainstream as well as underground comic book makers are increasingly using homosexual characters and themes in their comics. Homosexual superheroes have been featured, along with graphic homosexual scenes and dialogue. Indeed, one comic, The Authority, features two main characters who are homosexual superheroes.
Another article in the homosexual press on the same issue reported that there are “probably around a hundred gay characters out there” in comics right now. Given that children are usually the main readers of comics, one has to ask if recruitment is not part of the strategy.
And we also have homosexual cartoon characters in both TV series and in the movies. Consider Utena, Revolutionary Girl, an anime character who is a lesbian. Anime, or Japanese animation, is of course hugely popular with children – (Pokemon being but one example). Advertisements for Utena the movie feature in homosexual newspapers.
Along the same lines, what is one to make of the world’s first talking homosexual dolls? The dolls, which have been sold in the US and Europe, were made available in shops for Christmas 2003 in Australia. Openly homosexual Elton the Biker (complete with nipple rings), and his plastic counterpart Marshall, evidently have sold well overseas. Given that dolls are usually the kind of thing that children, not adults, play with, one has to ask if this is another recruiting attempt.
Let me finish by noting one more quite recent example of this. I have already mentioned the Boy Scouts. This movement of course was originally established as a Christian initiative. The way the Scouts are now being heavily targeted by homosexual activists would have the founder rolling in his grave.
Here is how one news outlet covers the story: “The Scout Association has revealed plans to boost its number of homosexual members and leaders. But the move has been criticised for ‘steering the organisation’ away from its original Christian values.
“John Cormack, of the Scottish Christian Party, said: ‘My reaction to this is one of dismay and I suspect many other people will also be deeply concerned.’ He added: ‘This is a huge step-change away from the Christian founding ethos of the Scout movement.’
“The half-a-million-strong movement has released a video as part of the campaign, which will also let Scouts attend homosexual marches in uniform. Wayne Bulpitt, the association’s UK chief commissioner, appeared in the video for homosexual lobby group Stonewall.”
One can think of no better place for older homosexuals to come into contact with young people, and actively recruit them into this harmful lifestyle. By allowing this to happen we are really permitting child neglect, if not child abuse. Targeting children now seems to be given the green light.
And of course the biggest outcry will come from various “enlightened” quarters, not against this outrage against children, but against myself and anyone else who dares to point this out, and sound the alarm. In our politically correct and morally numb culture, the only offence is to speak out against such activist shenanigans.
In an age of tolerance the active targeting of children is not only promoted but celebrated, while the attempt to protect children will be howled down with shouts of derision. Indeed, this is quite par for the course nowadays. But I for one will continue to speak out, until the forces of “tolerance” shut my site down or have locked me up.
