PFLAG, GLSEN Feature Child Sexual Abuse in Materials
By Linda P. Harvey
Warning: Graphic content.
It's scandal in the Catholic Church, but according to several groups that "support" homosexual teens and their parents, sex between a young teen and an adult is just an expected part of the growing up process.
In a long-term study of materials recommended for reading by Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), and Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), we found numerous stories and episodes of adult-teen homosexual sex. Incidents are treated at times in a neutral fashion, or too often, in a positive light -- as if such abusive relationships are natural, normal and even an advantageous "coming of age" step in the lives of "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered" youth.
Both GLSEN and PFLAG are activist groups that promote acceptance of homosexuality, bisexuality and cross-dressing even in elementary schools. They help students organize homosexual clubs with or without parental knowledge; advocate job protection for openly homosexual teachers and ministers; and attempt to partner with schools and churches. Both groups have taken political stances in favor of "gay" marriage and against the Boy Scouts' moral beliefs on homosexuality.
As an example of the kinds of resources recommended, the book "Two Teenagers in Twenty" (Edited by Ann Heron, Alyson Publications, 1994) is recommended by both PFLAG and GLSEN for teens to read. It's a compilation of true first-person "coming out" stories, ostensibly written by teenagers. In the book, one boy relates that he has a 23-year-old lover, a homosexual man he met at a subway stop. The boy telling the story is 15 (p. 81). Another boy who is 17 has a 32-year-old male lover (p. 91).
Another book for teens, "In Your Face: Stories from the Lives of Queer Youth" (Mary L. Gray, Harrington Park Press, division of Haworth Press-1999) is recommended by PFLAG in both its youth and parent brochures, and is available for purchase on the GLSEN web site, www.glsen.org . In this book, one pathetic story relates an 18-year-old boy's molestation by his mother's boyfriend who later became his step-father, beginning when the youth was ten. He informed his mother, but she didn't intervene. However, the boy's recollection is that the step-father "'didn't want a relationship; he just wanted to use me for sex'. I don't consider what my stepfather did to me child molestation, even though it was really. I consider it to be rape. That wasn't my first sexual experience, so I'm not scarred by it or anything." (pp.37-38)
In another incident, a boy named Todd recalled having a 25-year-old male sex partner when he was 16. They met when the boy went to the Sonoma County "gay" youth group (pp.58-59). He shortly began a different relationship with a 27-year-old male, a friend of the first partner (p.141). In another incident, a 15-year-old girl goes on a date and kisses an older lesbian, the person who had checked her in at the local homosexual youth group (pp.139-140).
A novel called "Rainbow Boys" (Alex Sanchez, Simon & Schuster, 2001) is recommended by PFLAG in its youth brochure and is available for purchase on the GLSEN web site. In this book, three teen boys are featured as they explore homosexual relationships with each other and others. Besides numerous graphic scenes of masturbation, sex between homosexual teen boys, and a bisexual boy and his girlfriend, a 29-year-old "meets" a 17-year-old in an online chat room (p.112). They eventually go on a "date" and teen readers are treated to an explicit sex scene involving anal intercourse without a condom. This takes place in the apartment of the adult man, cheating on his live-in lover who is out of town (p. 148). The younger boy is then worried about HIV, but tests negative. As the book closes, this same boy begins a relationship with a 19-year-old college student who's HIV positive (p.222) where sex is not involved - so far.
To add to the implied endorsement of PFLAG, the boy mentioned above has an absent father but lives with his mother- who is an officer of the local PFLAG chapter! In and around all of her son's sexual exploits, the mother comes and goes to PFLAG meetings.
The author of "Rainbow Boys", Alex Sanchez, was invited to speak this past spring (2002) to a "gay" club at Murphy Junior High School in Stony Brook, New York. (We are not making this up.) This club was allowed to organize after members of the local high school "gay" club visited the junior high on "Diversity Day." The book had been recommended to the sixth, seventh and eighth graders to read prior to the author's visit. The Murphy club is believed to be one of the few middle school homosexual clubs organized so far in the U.S. There are reportedly over 1000 high school "gay" clubs.
In the book "Growing Up Gay/Growing Up Lesbian: A Literary Anthology" (Edited by Bennett L. Singer, New Press, 1994) is an episode that might have been written by a pedophile. A boy raised by two gay men describes his first experience of anal intercourse with a man he guessed to be around 30 years old. The youth himself was 15 at the time(p.111). The boy claims he initiated it. He had already had previous homosexual experiences beginning at age eleven (p.110). This book is available for purchase on the GLSEN web site, and is recommended by PFLAG in its parent brochure.
All of these books contain a wealth of other objectionable and obscene subject matter. Pornography is portrayed as an aid for teens and children in clarifying one's homosexual identity; visits to adult book stores are common. Masturbation, even by young children, is described in detail. Sexual experimentation between young children and teens is throughout. Joining the local community "gay" youth group, usually without parental knowledge, is also a standard part of virtually every "coming out" story. And in a typically irreverent and now, ironic episode, one 17-year-old boy in Two Teenagers in Twenty confesses his homosexual activity to his Catholic priest. The priest not only affirms the homosexual behavior, he directs the boy to a supportive club for "gay" youth where he can go without his parents' knowledge. This all takes place in the state of Massachusetts, site of so many current Catholic priest scandals (pp. 158-159). The boy takes the priest's advice, and goes full-steam into the lifestyle, even becoming a "gay" teen activist.
The publishers of the "In Your Face" book, Haworth Press, are disseminators of books on social science subjects, quite a few dealing with "gay" issues. Among their past publications is the book "Male Intergenerational Intimacy: Historical, Socio-Psychological and Legal Perspectives" (Theo Sandfort, Ph.D. et al, eds., Haworth Press,1991), which makes an "objective" case for pedophilia.
One can't help recalling that GLSEN and PFLAG are listed as valued experts to consult on the issues of tolerance and "safety" for homosexual students by our U.S. Department of Education in the "Resources" section of the core brochure for the $700 million dollar Safe and Drug Free Schools Program (see www.ed.gov/pubs/HateCrime/start.html).
In that brochure, produced under the Clinton administration yet still being used, no traditional or pro-family groups are listed.
