What’s worse than one anti-gay organization? Seventeen of them – a frightening prospect made real in Australia, where “family” groups have come together to form the “Gender Matters” coalition. And, after putting their hateful heads together, the group has released a series of demands for the gays – and the world.
Most of their requests are pretty standard, like keeping marriage for heterosexuals and prohibiting gay adoption. Beyond that, however, things get pretty wild, like the use of public funds to “cure” the queers.
From Gender Matters’ website:
To dispel the current confusion regarding gender issues, and to restore the proper understanding and appreciation of maleness and femaleness, and to protect our children from harm, the following is proposed as a guide to policy makers
That public funding be committed to programmes and support networks which assist individuals to overcome gender disorientation pathology.
That it be affirmed that homosexuals, as individuals, should enjoy the same rights as other individuals, but that homosexual relationships not be granted social or legal recognition, since that would promote greater levels of gender disorientation pathology in the community as a whole, and undermine the unique status of marriage.
The group also wants schools to give little boys lessons on how to be masculine. Girls, meanwhile, would get lessons in being – well, girly. Also, all gay people will be terminated.
Psych! Gender Matters didn’t really ask for the mass murder of all the gays – but we bet they thought it!
