Why Do Gay Activists Have To Make School Bullying All About Anal Sex?

We feel more and more that activists are being deceptive in using anti-bullying rhetoric to introduce their viewpoints, while the viewpoint of Christian students and parents are increasingly belittled. … [T]his issue is being hijacked by activists. They shouldn’t be politicizing or sexualizing the issue of bully prevention.

—Focus on the Family education “expert” (her title) Candi Cushman, who founded TrueTolerance.org (“confront the gay agenda”) and also encourages schools to ban books like The Great Gatsby, on the nefarious efforts of groups like GLSEN to clean up anti-gay school bullying. Let’s not tell Candi about the three students in Minnesota who all committed suicide in the past year because … wait for it, wait for it … taunts over their sexuality. [via]

      “while the viewpoint of Christian students and (christian) parents are increasingly belittled”

      Immediately what leaps out at me (apart from the godawful grammar) is that there is a big difference between someone who’s gay and and someone who follows a sky pixie ideology – namely that one does not choose to be gay, whereas one does choose whether or not to follow an absurd belief in an imaginary friend up above the clouds.

      It really is about time that we stopped being respectful of people who hold these absurd and nasty supernatural beliefs. If you want to believe in an imaginary sky pixie then what we should do is call the doctors in and have you taken away to a psychiatric institution for heavy medication until you are well again.

      If she has something against ‘Gatsby’, just wait until she discovers ‘Tales of the city’.

      The headline said she tied bullying to anal sex. So where does the anal sex come in?

      Oh yeah, the asshole.

      how are these two things equal? this isn’t comparing like with like!

      The fact that someone has come on here and posted a “thumbs down” on each one of these posts tells me that Ms. Candi Needstopluckthoseeyebrows has been fiddling on Queerty. The power of Christ compels you! The power of Christ compels you!

      “She” doesn’t feel that bullying should be allowed…unless of course they are beating on the people “she” hates – the gays. Then it is just fine with her.

      And these people never, ever talk about gay teens who kill themselves due to their vile rhetoric. To even admit such a thing occurs diminishes their “expertise” and shines a giant light on how evil they truly are.

      The same numbnuts that search Disney movies frame-by-frame to find penises in the clouds have the nerve to pose the question “Why Do Gay Activists Have To Make School Bullying All About Anal Sex?”.
      And of course it’s Candi with an i.

      It’s annoying that whenever we stand up for equal rights, Christians call us “activists”. I’m sure they wouldn’t like it if we called them “terrorists”, but that is close to what they are doing.

      Ok I find it funny that any attempt to discuss an issue like this immediately degrades into a conversation like this. The article was about how focusing on the homosexual aspects of this type of bullying is offensive and actually serves to worsen the bullying. When I was a kid and we made fun of the gay kid it wasn’t cuz he was gay it was cuz he ran like a girl and we thought he was a fairy. I didn’t know what gay was. The point I am trying to make is do not respond to a forum post with ridiculous and polarized political rhetoric. All you hear in places like this is the typical responses from the left and the right. Either all gays are evil and need to die and deserve bullying, or anyone who believes in an afterlife or something bigger than us must be a fucking lunatic and be committed and therefore anything they say is invalid. Where are the reasonable people? Try to think about what u have read, think about it and provide a contribution to a discussion instead of just being part of a bleeding heart left wing political agenda. These are the people who make blanket statements like religious people believe in sky pixies or that all Christians are bigots. I do not see how this is any better than the right wing extremists who go to anti abortion rally’s and protest gay funerals. Develop a fucking opinion of your own not this everyone deserves everything cuz were all equal and we should all be happy. Be realistic for fuck sakes and stop being extremists who just put fuel on the fire.
