Linda Harvey’s New Book Tells Parents To Listen To Her, Not Their Gay Child

linda-harvey-001So who are parents to believe? Their child or rightwing wingnut Linda Harvey? Well, if your kid tells you he’s gay, apparently Harvey.

In a new book, the Mission:America founder takes it upon herself to help parents second-guess their child. Titled Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality, the book insists “as more and more young people announce this is their identity, it’s time to take a closer look.”

Just in case you were wondering where this was headed, Harvey poses this question about coming out: “Are we sure this is the truth?” (BTW, don’t wait for a Harvey book titled Maybe He Is Gay. Gay doesn’t exist on Planet Harvey.)

Of course, Harvey fills parents’ heads with an endless serving of doom and gloom. “Does this identity bring the promised liberation and the key to a whole new life? Does it lift the burden of secrecy – or begin a different kind of struggle?”

But there’s good news! “Specifically for America’s youth, this book focuses on the bright future they can all have, regardless of the turmoil of adolescence, which for some may include same sex attractions or gender confusion. What do those feelings mean? Is there another possibility that transcends the seeming finality of a homosexual identity?”

All this for less than $10! So if your office holiday party is a little late and you need a gag gift, here’s your chance. It’s a gift that’s guaranteed to make you gag.

    I’m looking forward to her next book: “Maybe He’s Not Left-Handed: Another View on Lefties” wherein Linda argues there is no left-handed gene and that normal children are right-handed.

    Linda Harvey is correct in terms of the notion that homosexuality in men can lead to an empty vacuum of a life. No kids, no structures based on the nuclear family, endless nights spent with other gay men in smelly bars where the hot topic of conversation is “did you hear that new song from Lady Gaga?”…. It really is tragic.

    However, I also think that it is the resentful attitude of women which pushes men in particular to the edges. Women fear male homosexuality in men who are attracted to women because it reduces a woman’s power to control men.

  • EricNYCity

    @jimbryant… you must lead a sad life. You’re only thrill in life seems to be posting inflammatory comments on here. I suggest you get some help.

  • marc sfe

    @EricNYCity: You said it better than I could Eric. I think jimb has a mirror that is so highly polished it has blinded him. He must be a very sad lonely person.

  • marc sfe

    @jimbryant: It seems you’re doing a lot of mirroring, today and in all your posts. Sad.

  • jimbryant

    You just don’t like it when the truth is pointed out to you.

  • marc sfe

    @jimbryant: You’re trolling for a reaction and I’ll not give you the satisfaction. Happy New Year.

  • Tyler100


    Jim is proof that the kinds of psychological torture Linda Harvey advocates can truly screw you up.

  • sangsue


    Why do you hate women so much, because they dared to say no to you?

  • NH Mike

    @EricNYCity: You have to wonder why he bothers to comment on a GAY news site, but denigrates gay men.

  • Tyler100

    @NH Mike:

    It’s because he’s not actually a gay man, but a republican plant.

    Is anita bryant your family member?

  • jmsper

    @jimbryant: you are pretty funny – new song from Lady GaGa – LOL. Also, your quote about “male homosexuality in men” – why be so specific, does it occur in women too??

  • Aromaeus

    @jimbryant You sound a lot like resident troll Rick on Towleroad. He hates women and believes they are intimidated by male homosexuality as well and never ceases to express his tired rhetoric.

  • doug105

    This woman and people like her are why pissing on graves should be covered under free speech laws, to give us all something to look forward too.

    @jimbryant: go bury yourself under your own bullsh*t

    What a clueless dumb bitch.

    @jimbryant: Whose truth Jim? It is certainly not mine. I have been attracted to men since I can remember and they arouse me. Women do not arouse me. After I was old enough to figure out who I was, I met my lifetime partner of 52 years, we got married almost 10 years ago, and my life has been full of happiness. Linda Harvey only knows herself and cannot determine whether or not someone else is gay as she cannot know them.


    @jimbryant: Why are you on this site? It seems you don’t like it.

  • Atomicrob

    @jimbryant: Reducing my life to subcultural stereotype from 1961 is lame. Being gay isn’t a live version of Boys in the Band, dude. My partner of 32 years agrees.

  • Charles175

    @jimbryant: Trolls are always lonely and hide behind a computer keyboard. They always are a glutton for unwanted attention. These have no love in their hearts nor any degree of character in their souls. In this a naive nerd or geek has a better chance of landing a gal. If this of what I say doesn’t bother you, then it does not apply.

  • OutnProud

    Makes herself sound like an expert on the topic when all she’s belting out is empty words

    “Don’t listen to your kid, buy my book instead”

    What is the parent (naturally) going to do first? Listen their kid(s), ya dumb broad
