All the men out there, which one is the woman? To put you out of your distress, check here.

Obviously I find the ‘newly normative’ nature of this troubling – like many other people.

Los Angeles (CNN) — The Miss Universe organization announced Tuesday it is ending its ban on transgender contestants after coming under scrutiny recently when a Canadian competitor was told she would be disqualified because she was born male.

Miss Universe officials insist the change is in spite of, not because of, legal threats from women’s rights lawyer Gloria Allred made on behalf of contestant Jenna Talackova.

“We made the decision two days before we even heard that (Allred) was involved,” pageant owner Donald Trump told CNN Monday. “Had I known she was involved, maybe I wouldn’t have made that decision because she’s easy to beat.”

Allred launched a blistering attack on Trump at a news conference a week ago, saying his pageant had no right to question Talackova’s sexuality.

“She did not ask Mr. Trump to prove that he is a naturally born man or to see photos of his birth to view his anatomy to prove that he was male,” Allred said.

In a Twitter posting Monday, Trump called Allred a “third rate lawyer” who “actually hurts Jenna.”

“Is Gloria a man or a woman???? ….. few men would know the answer to that one,” Trump tweeted in a personal retort to Allred.

Allred did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for a response to Trump’s attack.

The Miss Universe Pageant announced last week that Talackova, 23, could compete provided “she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions.”

Allred had criticized that announcement, saying the conditions were “ambigious.” Trump later said Talackova could compete without conditions, but stopped short of a permanent rule change.

The audio segment above goes on to discuss the “day of silencing” where GLAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance against Disagreement) is using kids to promote the LGBT cause. Plainly. An elementary school teacher (of colour) calls in to mention his grave concerns on the topic as well as to mention his rejection that “gay is the new black” – in that gay rights does not equate to homosexual rights because gays have a choice to make their (properly) private sexual preferences known. Black people have no choice to make their skin colour known!

Do you know what the so-called “Day of Silence[ing]” is?

On April 20th, in thousands of schools across America, your hard-earned tax dollars will help underwrite the homosexual indoctrination of your kids. Yes, April 20th will mark the annual Day of Silence, described on its website as “a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.” As for those who do not support a special school day devoted to gay indoctrination, they are the ones who can expect to be silenced.

Originally the brainchild of some college students in 1996, the Day of Silence has been aggressively promoted for the last 12 years by GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network. (Based on its activities, GLSEN would better be described as the Gay & Lesbian Sexual Education Network.) GLSEN calls on students to remain silent during non-instructional school times on the Day of Silence, thereby standing in solidarity with LGBT youth who are silenced through bullying and harassment.

But don’t some schools already have generic, anti-bullying programs in place along with special, daylong events to highlight the destructive effects of bullying, a subject that should concern all of us? Of course they do, but that’s not enough. GLSEN insists that a special focus must be put on LGBT kids, as if bullying a gay kid was worse than bullying a fat kid.

But there’s more that takes place on the Day of Silence: A pro-homosexuality message is often sent to the students, with teachers and administrators frequently promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism over the course of the day. That’s why thousands of schools (and not just students) officially participate in the event, with the explicit backing of GLSEN. What about other messages being introduced during the day to balance the discussion? Perish the thought.

Just ask PFOX (Parents and Friends of ExGays and Gays), which announced its intention to hand out literature on the Day of Silence. According to PFOX president Greg Quinlan, “PFOX is calling on students to distribute flyers promoting acceptance of ex-gays. Former homosexuals and their supporters are ridiculed and forced to live in silence. Our nation’s schools deny students with unwanted same-sex attractions any support or fact-based information that feelings can and do change.”

How was this announcement welcomed? According to one gay journalist, “the fact that they are attempting to sneak in their harmful message on the Day of Silence, a day which is supposed to show support for those who are forced into silence by outside pressures, shows just how deceptive their message truly is.”

How dare they introduce their message on the Day of Silence! As expressed in 2004 by gay activist Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN and most recently President Obama’s Safe School Czar, “Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation’s public schools. A line has been drawn. There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students.” Ah yes, the voice of tolerance speaks once again.

What about the Day of Dialogue, sponsored by the evangelical Christian organization Focus on the Family, and scheduled this year for April 19th, the day before the Day of Silence? This event encourages “student-initiated conversations about the fact that God cares about our lives, our relationships and our sexuality. . . . [Jesus’] example calls us to stand up for those being harmed or bullied while offering the light of what God’s word says.”

Surely this event will be welcomed, right? Not a chance. As expressed by a professing Christian woman with a self-described “hair-trigger sensitivity for the protection of LGBT youth,” the Day of Dialogue has something “very rotten” at its core. She writes (on LGBTQNATION.com), “Allowing Focus on the Family to export their historical and counter-productive sacred discrimination of the LGBT community to Christian youth is a mistake.” To repeat the words of Kevin Jennings, “There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students.”

Last week an elementary school teacher from Florida called into my radio program, identifying himself as a black male but not wanting to give any specifics about the grade he taught at school. He was concerned that his job could be in jeopardy if he dared speak out against the Day of Silence. (Other elementary school teachers have told me privately that they dare not speak out against the overt homosexual activism they see on a regular basis in their schools – remember, we’re talking about elementary schools – for fear of losing their jobs.)

Although the Day of Silence had not yet been introduced to this gentleman’s school in Florida, the faculty members were discussing strategies for its future implementation, with explicit instructions to present this as a civil rights issue. (Needless to say, this black American also did not approve of equating gay activism with the civil rights movement.) And what should the teacher do if a student raised a religious or moral objection to homosexuality? The conversation, he was told, should immediately be turned back to gay civil rights, and no religious or moral objections should be entertained.

Yes, the Day of Silence has become the Day of Silencing – unless parents and educators and students determine to let their voices be heard. Now would be a good time to start.

  1. I’m just saying this in a non-offensive way, but…
    Gay people really don’t CHOOSE to be gay. It’s not a lifestyle or a sect or a wacky sort of “misbehavior” as some people would call it. It is how they were born, just like black people are born black.
    Scientists have seen recurring patterns on brain scans of homosexual people (neurobiologist Dick Swaab wrote excellent articles about that), showing that it is actually a physical thing, just like black skin or blue eyes.
    Homosexuality occurs throughout the animal kingdom, and it is nod effect, it has a use. Computer models have shown how a population with a certain percentage of homosexuals is more prosperous than one without them.

    • Servant says:

      Well, here is a similarly non-offensive (really) reply.

      Check this out: http://www.mygenes.co.nz/MGMMDIsynopsis.htm

      We just don’t agree on this & I don’t see science as being usable in your argument if it is usable in mine. Then there is falsehood somewhere.

      • Okay, then we disagree. After all, we are all entitled to have our own proper opinions. I just get a little… let’s call it pissed when I read that people discriminate gays, because my brother is homosexual, and trust me he didn’t choose to be that way.
        Also… -Again, everyone is entitled to have an opinion of his own, don’t take this the wrong way- if you are right and homosexuality is a choice (which I don’t think so, but hypothetically) what gives you or others the right to say they are “wrong” and moreover shouldn’t exist therefor?
        Do they hurt others? Do they kill others? Do they do anything that is hurtful to fellow human beings? For as far as I know not.
        In my opinion even the idea homosexuality would be a choice doesn’t give you the right to discriminate them. Or isn’t religion a choice as well?

        • Servant says:

          Interesting (your brother etc), but you should know that the desire isn’t the problem, it’s the acting upon it. I struggle not to stare at attractive women, but I have to resist it. I cannot sleep around even if I feel like I’m biologically designed to / inclined do that.

          • So I can make this summary: homosexual behavior is against your fundamental principles, and not the urge itself.
            This is where we differ in idea: I see how much in pain my brother has been, he has struggled with his nature for years, (that’s why I know it was his nature and not a choice he somehow made), depressed by the fact his deepest self was somehow “wrong”.
            I may be unreligious, but I still know you believe in a God of Love. Why would such a god bring someone in such a position?
            Is denying a fundamental part of your person the only way for some people to live “righteously”? I can’t support an ideology or belief that thinks that…

            • Servant says:

              “This is where we differ in idea: I see how much in pain my brother has been, he has struggled with his nature for years, (that’s why I know it was his nature and not a choice he somehow made), depressed by the fact his deepest self was somehow ‘wrong’. I may be unreligious, but I still know you believe in a God of Love. Why would such a god bring someone in such a position?”

              A good & worthy question to anyone that is in a position to seriously reason this through. Let me suggest this response. See what you think. I’d be interested to hear.

        • Servant says:

          “…what gives you or others the right to say they are “wrong” and moreover shouldn’t exist therefor? Do they hurt others? Do they kill others? Do they do anything that is hurtful to fellow human beings? For as far as I know not. In my opinion even the idea homosexuality would be a choice doesn’t give you the right to discriminate them. Or isn’t religion a choice as well?”

          Doing harm to someone because they are gay is wrong. The problem comes when (and I know you would likely not be sympathetic to this, but anyway…) gay people silence others – that they cannot say that they disagree that it’s the best thing to encourage kids to “explore their sexuality” and “maybe come out”. I’ve heard of a child that did that one day because it seemed like the “in” thing to do & come back the next day to say he/she thinks it was a mistake. Is freedom of speech worth giving up for this topic? Maybe that’s the simplest way to ask it.

          • Okay, there you really have a point, it shouldn’t be “promoted” as a choice, because it is not. It shouldn’t be promoted as a disease either, simply as something that exists. If you really are gay, it turns up anyway.

  2. Servant says:

    …also, there was news & uproar about “gay penguins” that seemed to blow over. Maybe you have other cases where it seemed more probable, but my bottom line is likely to stay where it is – many reasons involved.

    You may find me more sympathetic in other topics, but thus is the nature of having an unrelenting Bible in my hand. It will talk to those that want to hear & those that prefer not to.
