Culture War: Anti-Gay rally in Boston?

If i were a betting man, i would wager that using the term "liberal" to describe Boston or Massachusetts would cease by the end of this decade. Sounds farfatched for the Gay-marriage state? Not really, or rather, not Anymore! From the people who brought you the story of the school that gives 6 year old kids a story that has gay parents, comes the new and Improved gay sex education booklet titled "The Little Black Book - v2.0 Queer in the 21st Century" to be handed out to middle-school children in Brookline Highschool. To call the book's contents- which you can check out here- graphic and explicit, well, its kind of an underestament, even for a sex education book. The last sex education Book i've had never included Fisting, rimming, water sports or why using condoms is necessary in order not to get "dookie on your noodle". Kids these days! Naturally, parents are outraged, and they are staging a rally against the "enforced homosexualization in Massachusetts": Brian Camenker of the Article 8 Alliance says since the MSJC legalized same-sex unions, Massachusetts has become overrun by homosexuality. "Even driver's licenses now, when you renew them, have a question such as, 'Has your sex changed?'" he notes. Parents have even been arrested by police for resisting having their kids exposed to homosexuality, the pro-family advocate claims. "Society is going through this enforced homosexualization in Massachusetts," he says. "It's truly frightening." For example, he points to Lexington parent David Parker, who was arrested and charged with "trespassing" at his son's elementary school during a scheduled meeting with the principal and the town's Director of Education over his objections to homosexual curriculum materials. Camenker and other traditional family supporters feel the MSJC's ruling legalizing homosexual marriage was tantamount to ripping the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts into shreds. In addition, he maintains that parents and others who believe in the biblical view of homosexuality are being vilified in the schools by supporters of the educators' unions. In response to all this, the Article 8 spokesman reveals that a big rally is being planned for City Hall Plaza in Boston, with its number-one priority being to inform the media and the public about what is going on. "Essentially, we're going to outline to the press the kinds of things that have been going on in this year that have oppressed the people," he says, such as "the incredibly accelerated homosexual agenda in the schools because of this [court ruling]." You know, i am one of those people who usually roll their eyes whenever i hear the words "Homosexual agenda", because for me it's the equivelant of saying "Zionist conspiracy"= Pure B.S. . I say that because i have known a lot of gay people in Boston and they do not agree on a damn thing, let alone have an agenda. Most of them have issues with being Gay themselves, let alone wanting to convert anyone's son or daughter to their lifestyle, as some people claim they are doing. However, i do realize that there are a number of extremist Gay advocacy groups that are pushing the line in regards to gay rights because they are emboldend by the gay marriage ruling and they think that the whole world is ready to fully accept them and their lifestyle, which is far from the truth. People are not ready to fully accept gay people and lifestyle in all aspects of society, and some people never will. The fact that there is gay tolerance is a good thing, but tolerance doesn't mean support: It means "i don't like it but i will let it slide" and that's what those groups are not getting. They are doing too much too soon and pushing people too far and there was bound to be a backlash in Massachusetts sooner or later. And now it's here. This might get ugly!

Good thoughful post. IMO some people are extremist by nature, and whether they pick gay rights, animal rights or fundamentalist Islam to be extreme about is a matter of chance.

Let's keep things in perspective here. This is Massachusetts we're talking about. The last sane person left Massachusetts years ago. The last I heard, Boston was even infested with Arabs!

the book's ridiculous. the content just seems like a cheap way to promote sex. i don't see how it advocates gay rights in any way.

Desertpig: Infested with arabs? Infested?You know what..never mind! I won;t say nothing to you. Hopefully one of my non-arab readers will!

Sally: I agree that the book is redicilous. I am guessing it doesn't promote gay rights as much as it promotes the gay lifestyle, and the kind of sex involved in that lifestyle. It reads almost as an assurance manual for young gay boys that its fabolous to be gay and to have safe gay or kinky sex if you will. The Book seems authenthic though. The Fenway Health clinic is a clinic that predominantly caters to the gay community and its a funny story how i found that out. One of my friends went there to get an std test done which they offerd it for free, and asked me to come with him for emotional support. He goes in and i wait outside and i am surrounded by the wirdest magazines ever, one of them was called Poz and it was a ghealth magazine dedicated to HIV Positive gay men. I then looked around and realised that everyone there was gay as well,and there were fliers on the wall about support groups for transgederd people, and domestically abused gay men. It was a headtrip.

Another reason why i believe the book to be authethic is due to the club page. Those are real Boston clubs. Hell, i lived next to Ramrod and machine for a month, and it was funny at first, but eventually i couldn't handle the Trannys openly hitting on me, so i moved.

Um...desert pig...I hope you were being sarcastic with your "infested with ARabs" remark. If not, you're an assh*le and should shut the F* up.

Yep...this book is insane. I liked your comment about "homosexual agenda" = "zionist conspiracy" because that's exactly how I look at it: BS.

However, just as there are some fringe whacks in Islam, Judaism, Christianity, etc, there are some fringe whacks in the homosexual community and some how these fringe whacks are able to get the most attention and force this kind of BS on the rest of us.

Honestly, if anyone wants to know about the kind of stuff they are advocating in that book, they could go on line and find out for themselves.

This is disgusting, frankly, that it's in our schools and I'm glad you brought my attention to it.

Stand by for follow up post from me on this subject.

Oh my god! Are you serious? You’re sure that’s not doctored? I live in Boston; I even go to some of those bars it mentions and a guy at works kid goes to Brookline High, damn.

As for you desert pig I am quite sane, still living in Boston and loving the Arab “infestation”. I am sure your self derogatory name speaks for itself. Saddest thing is I’ll bet you are an Arab.

Sand Monkey I’m still waiting on you to come comment on my site!

I was laughing loud and clapping reading what you wrote to the pig lol! I was like Omak hahahaha! (will translate that later)

My question is how can we contribute effectively to stop this insanity. I mean would out of State citizens count in any offical action?

If that book was for real, someone other than that obviously right wing site you gave us would have mentioned it, and I couldn't find it anywhere. Not on any reputable news source.
Secondly, the book may have been produced, but it was certainly not handed out by the school, but by some extremist group.
You really should look at who you get your news from. Agape press? Article 8 alliance? You people think that newsweek is unreliable because of one unsubstantiated story, but you read intently stories which come from news sources like these, who's bias is as about as transparent as a paper plate smeared with grease.

As far as the whole gay thing however, I have to say as much as it pains me that I think you might have a little bit of a point. This whole gay culture thing is getting out of hand. I support gay rights, but I don't want to have the whole thing shoved in my face with parades, GLBT film festivals, and the like. It's irritating. And to have movies like Latter Days which I'm told is quite anti-mormon, yet pro-gay praised, even though it denegrates my people. They don't want tolerance for everyone, just themselves, and I hate that. I have blogged more on this subject if any of you care to read it.

Does no one notice that the Arab infestation of Boston coincided with the increase in sexual perversion? Post hoc ergo propter hoc?

Show of hands, who thinks desert pig is an arab and who thinks he is Irish, Italian or both?

I think he is a pig with no nationality.

Anon, take a guess. We all have some sort of nationality and most of us are (not in a bad way) pigs.

Israeli pig that is my guess.

Nope..not Israeli pig. My guess is someone that thinks it's funny to say stupid things on a blog to see if they can rile people up.

I believe they are referred to as trolls.

Not someone to debate and discuss with. Just someone to delete.

Sam man, I would if I was you. Delete that is.
