The radical homosexual activists figured out long ago that they had to play on emotions to win their battle for full acceptance in mainstream American society. One clever way to do this would be to portray themselves in"normal" families, INCLUDING CHILDREN. Children have been used as political pawns in the gay power struggle. See the 1972 Gay Rights Platform which includes the demand for rights to adoption and foster care.)
Since neither gay men nor exclusively lesbian women could reproduce, how would they acquire children? Some brought children from former heterosexual marriages or relationships; some lesbians went the route of natural (grin and bear it for the cause!), or artificial, insemination. (And maybe the "bisexuals" fit in here somewhere?) Many have ADOPTED.
Adoptions are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Social Services (DSS), which was totally co-opted by the homosexual activists over the last two decades. (Bear in mind that Governor Romney controls the DSS as part of the Executive Branch.) Many, many homosexuals work in the DSS at all levels, as confirmed by our source, a long-time former social worker in adoption and foster care at DSS.
It has been Massachusetts law for some time that the DSS cannot deny homosexuals ("married" or "unmarried" couples, or singles) the privilege of adopting. This falls under the "Multi-Ethnic Placement Act". How incredible that homosexual behaviors are categorized by Massachusetts law as an "ethnic" factor!!! ["No one can be denied the opportunity to become an adoptive or foster parent on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, age, ancestry, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, language, disability, veteran status, or national origin..."]
Our source has shared some interesting DSS training materials on GLBT issues. DSS personnel must learn definitions which fully incorporate the radical homosexual perspective, taught in a mandatory session by a Harvard Ph.D. expert in "identity issues". The motto of the session: "To tolerate is an assault; you HAVE TO ACCEPT!"
Examples of definitions taught:
Heterosexism: Systems and ways of thinking that reinforce a belief in the inherent superiority of heterosexuality and heterosexual relationships, thereby negating the lives and relationships of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people.
Heterosexual Privilege: The basic civil rights and social privileges that a heterosexual person automatically receives that are systematically denied to gay, lesbian, and bisexual persons simply because of their sexual orientation. The assumption that all people are heterosexual.
Gender Identity: An individual's basic self-conviction of being male or female. This conviction is not contingent upon the individual's biological gender.
Gender Expression: External representation of one's gender identity, usually expressed through "masculine" or "feminine" behavior, clothing, hair cut, voice or body characteristics.
Down Low (or DL): A term coined by some bisexual men of color that describes a cultural phenomenon of men who have sex with other men without informing their female partners.
Bisexual: A person who experiences the human need for warmth, affection, and love from persons of either gender. Sometimes this includes sexual contact..."
Homosexual: ... Homosexuality per se is no longer considered an illness by the American Psychiatric Association, nor by the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association, or most other reputable professional organizations.
The social workers are given a flyer on Waltham House, the Home for Little Wanderers' therapeutic center for "self-identified GLBT youth who cannot live at home with their family." DSS workers are directed to resources including BAGLY (Boston Alliance for GLBT Youth), Gay & Lesbian National Hotline, Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD, the lawyers for gay "marriage"), Lambda Legal, and the infamous GLSEN (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network, behind all the propaganda in our schools) -- all guaranteed to draw these troubled youth further into this dangerous "lifestyle".
