The MassResistance blog began in early 2005 with a Massachusetts focus on judicial tyranny, same-sex "marriage", and LGBT activism in our schools. We broadened our focus to national-level threats to our Judeo-Christian heritage, the Culture of Life, and free speech. In 2006, Article 8 Alliance adopted the name "MassResistance" for its organization. CAUTION: R-rated subject matter.

Should Taxpayers Fund Con's Sex-Change -- or "Trans" Propaganda in Schools?
The Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth directs students to an organization -- BAGLY -- which is run by a M2F transsexual who speaks to high school students all over the state about "trans" issues and resources. And Boston Mayor Menino opens up Boston City Hall to a gay/trans prom every May.
Certainly Gov. Romney isn't too upset about this unhealthy message being drummed into our public school students. He had a chance to disband the "Governor's Commission" and blew it. And now we have a group of 16 state senators setting up an independent state commission which will promote such lunacy even more forcefully in the future. The current Commission chairman, Kathleen Henry, has stated her goal that "bisexual and transgender youth" will receive as much "support" in the future as "gay and lesbian youth" are now getting from the Commission. It is, after all, a subgroup that seems to be growing.
From the Boston Herald report on the wife murderer who is demanding that the state pay for his sex-change surgery, "Con: Fund my sex change." (Note that Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey is upset by the murderer's demand. But she has nothing to say about the "trans" propaganda coming at our children in the public schools.)
Not satisfied with his taxpayer-funded female hormones and laser hair removal, a convicted killer-turned-transsexual is again asking the state to pony up to complete his transformation into a woman. Robert Kosilek, who is serving life in prison for strangling his wife, was back in federal court yesterday, again demanding that the state Department of Correction pay for his sex-change operation.
A similar bid was denied in 2002, and his latest attempt has infuriated Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey. “I strongly oppose using taxpayer dollars to fund a sex-change operation for any prisoner, but especially a convicted murderer,” Healey said. ...
Kosilek, who wears his hair long and tucked behind his ears, has developed larger breasts since beginning hormone treatments. He has testified that he suffered from gender identity disorder since he was 3 years old and had attempted suicide twice. He has also said he tried to castrate himself.
The con began his crusade for a taxpayer-funded sex change after his 1990 arrest for strangling his 36-year-old wife, Cheryl. Her body was dumped in a parking lot.

Pedophile Political Party in Netherlands: Is Massachusetts Next?
Meanwhile on the Massachusetts scene, we've reported on State Senator Jarrett Barrios' plans to establish an independent Massachusetts government commission "for" gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans youth. Commission members would include only the most radical GLBT activists. So can Massachusetts be far behind the Netherlands? Let's see -- We already have pre-schoolers indoctrinated about "alternative families," and bills filed in the legislature to decriminalize sodomy and bestiality. And government-sponsored mixers where adult men hand out flyers to teens at a GLBT prom, inviting them to parties in private apartments.
From the Dutch news report:
Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party said on its Web site it would be officially registered Wednesday, proclaiming: "We are going to shake The Hague awake!" The party said it wanted to cut the legal age for sexual relations to 12 and eventually scrap the limit altogether.
"A ban just makes children curious," Ad van den Berg, one of the party's founders, told the Algemeen Dagblad (AD) newspaper. "We want to make pedophilia the subject of discussion," he said. ...
"They make out as if they want more rights for children. But their position that children should be allowed sexual contact from age 12 is of course just in their own interest," [said an] anti-pedophile campaigner. Right-wing [does that mean "bad"?] lawmaker Geert Wilders said he had asked the government to investigate whether a party with such "sick ideas" could really be established....
The party wants private possession of child pornography to be allowed ... It also supports allowing pornography to be broadcast on daytime television, with only violent pornography limited to the late evening. Toddlers should be given sex education and youths aged 16 and up should be allowed to appear in pornographic films and prostitute themselves. Sex with animals should be allowed although abuse of animals should remain illegal, the NVD said. The party also said everybody should be allowed to go naked in public and promotes legalizing all soft and hard drugs and free train travel for all.

When Breast Removal Is Not Enough
Check out this subtly transphobic news item from WebMD (referring to "disfigurement", "birth defects"? -- and why don't they mention this technique's application to transsexual humans?). Scientists are now mastering the technique of growing artificial penises: Scientists Grow Artificial Penis in Lab (May 23, 2006).
It's now possible to replace a defective, damaged, or diseased penis with a penis grown in a laboratory -- in rabbits.
But the finding promises an amazing new treatment for infants, boys, and men who suffer penis disfigurement. The replacement organ would be grown on a penis-shaped matrix seeded with cells from the patient's own body.
"Our goal is eventually to treat infants and adults with birth defects, penis trauma, or penis cancer," Atala tells WebMD. "But this is a future goal. We are now deciding which animal model to explore next." ...
Atala says the new penises have blood vessels and nerves that allow them to become fully functional. Indeed, the replacement penises worked like a charm. The rabbits were able to get erections, mate with females, and get females pregnant with normal, healthy pups.
This latter issue -- whether trans people are able to get satisfaction -- was on the minds of the teenagers attending this year's GLSEN Boston conference. One student asked if a trans person would still have sexual pleasure if they changed their genitals. We're not sure how it was answered, since such penises have not yet been attached to humans.

Early Years of Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth
An oldie but goodie. Check out this letter by Scott Whiteman (famous for exposing the GLSEN seminar in 2000 instructing our children how to "fist" ). The letter is from February 2000, just prior to the infamous GLSEN conference. The very premise of the commission, specifically "gay" teen suicides, was false.
... the 1989 suicide statistics have been proven false (Boston Herald, "Gay teen suicide state refuted", May 25, 1997, 5). ... The Youth Risk Behavior Survey is "self-reported" and "there is no way to establish its accuracy" ... We have based our public policy on the potentially false or misleading statements of 14 gay kids. ...
The Governor's Commission gives a mixed message. "Officially" and in the papers, LaFontaine [ notorious "gay" activist and first Chairman, a "man accused of hate crimes for his organization of an event at which condoms were thrown at Catholic priests"] says that its not about sex, and he "believe[s] very strongly that all students should not be sexually active in high school" (Boston Herald, "Conservative study rips state sex ed program," December 29, 1999, p 24). But after school, at gay clubs throughout the Commonwealth, freely distributed information giving gay-youth "[a] chance to really get to know yourself and other queer youth on a much deeper level" is given to our high school students. Which are we supposed to believe? Ought we believe the "official" statements given by middle-aged men who have sex with men, with a vested interest in homosexuality and without children in Massachusetts schools? Or should we believe the literature discovered by parents with children in Massachusetts schools?
What is the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth really all about? Is it about "identity", "safety", "civil rights"? Or is it about pushing children into unnatural and dangerous behaviors?
Has the Governor's Commission toned it down any in recent years? No, they've just learned to disguise who they really are.

BAGLY's Public Disservice Announcements
Don't know what radio stations they may be playing on.

Witness Outside the BAGLY Queer/Trans Prom
(part of MassYouthPride 2006, sponsored by Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth)
I was there on Boston City Hall Plaza outside the BAGLY Queer/Trans prom. (The BAGLY organization – Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth -- uses the word “queer”.) It was a depressing, sad scene. The entrance was decorated with two rainbow-colored balloon archways. Hundreds of excited young people were milling about, waiting for the event to start at 7 p.m. They kept flooding out of the Govt Center T station.
Some were dressed in the wildest outfits imaginable (including lots of cross-dressing), and some were in relatively normal clothes but often with some little rainbow accent. One young girl was in a skimpy spaghetti strap evening dress and heels, standing in the cold, pouring rain with no coat, soaked through, waiting to get in. One tall, skinny man in his mid-20’s or older (certainly older than the supposed 22-year-old cutoff age) was in a ghastly outfit with a mini-skirt, black fishnet stockings, and high black boots, with Goth makeup -- frightening to look at. Same-sex couples were holding hands, and some were kissing.
I couldn’t get the tale of the Pied Piper out of my head. The use the fun rainbow colors, balloons, and promises of indescribable pleasure to entice these unfortunate young people into this snake-pit of depravity. Instead of a hypnotic flute, the modern abductors use queer hip hop groups like “DeepDickollective” to lure the kids. Then the door slams shut on them, and few will escape. (We never did find out what happened to the children once the Pied Piper got them into his cave.)
There was no apparent police presence outside Boston City Hall. (I could not go inside – too old to get in.) There were older people circulating outside. A friend who was younger (who could fit into the crowd) took some photos, and encountered an older man who said he was part of the security, checking party-goers’ ages, but was handing out little flyers recruiting boys to a weekly gay men’s volleyball game. Worse, he handed out a flyer showing two adult men holding a boy between them, with the caption:
Join Our Play & Dinner Groups
Email us for next party
[gives email and phone#]
At one point, a goon came marching over towards me with an angry expression, as I peered through the glass wall at the entrance to City Hall. (What are they hiding?) After this “warning” I left.

Media Bury News: 2nd Marriage Amendment To Be Killed by Mass. Legislature & GLBT Lobby
Surely the Boston Globe and Herald know. We even emailed our posting (which first revealed this sleazy plot) to the Globe reporter supposedly covering the marriage amendment story.
But no, there was total silence in the Saturday and Sunday papers. What the Herald and Globe both found newsworthy over the weekend was a manufactured story from AP, "Gays see shift in momentum toward acceptance in Alabama" (with the Globe running a picture of an attractive, chubby lesbian couple and "their" son). Managed news -- just like living behind the Iron Curtain.
The mainstream GLBT media are trying to figure out how to spin this story. After all, this will be the second time in four years a citizens' referendum has been unconstitutionally killed by the most corrupt state legislature in America.

WE PREDICTED THIS! VoteOnMarriage Amendment to Be Killed
WE PREDICTED THIS! Bay Windows writes that VoteOnMarriage.org's amdendment will be killed through a procedural maneuver, using OUR definition of marriage bill H653 (which was filed to create a statute, not an amendment, defining marriage) -- which was ILLEGALLY turned into an amendment by homosexual activist Senator Barrios.
Our May 18 posting prompted the outpouring of strategy from the homosexual lobby.
So what kind of award do we get for political acumen? Meanwhile, VoteOnMarriage kept this possibility as quiet as they could, though we believe they knew full well of this threat. How must all their supporters feel? We did warn them! Last summer, a group of true conservative, pro-family organizations and leaders came out against the amendment, under Article 8 Alliance/MassResistance's leadership. Besides disagreeing the strategy and particular content of the amendment, we predicted court challenges and just such legislative maneuvering as we're now seeing!
Some of our recent postings on the marriage amendment scam:

Gov. Mitt Romney Is "Father of Gay Marriage"
- A catastrophic surrender is underway as pro-family organizations and conservative media avoid exposing Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
- Gov. Romney's blatant fraud will turn out to be one of the most destructive things that has ever happened to constitutional law and the social fabric of the United States. Ted Kennedy could only dream of what Mitt Romney is pulling off with the help of many prominent conservatives.
On May 18, American Family Association Radio interviewed John Haskins, Associate Director of the Parents’ Rights Coalition of Massachusetts. AFA Radio has over 150 stations and affiliates around the country. The following is a partial transcript of the interview:
(On how Governor Romney gets away with funding homosexual brainwashing of schoolchildren while posing outside his state as a pro-family conservative:)
Like the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald, the news media around the country refuse to investigate or report honestly on the homosexual and transsexual groups that are using tax money to go after vulnerable children and lonely teenagers, under the pretense of suicide prevention. This is a growing national scandal underway now for at least fifteen years that will rival the Catholic clergy molestation scandal that so much media energy was put into.
(On why most Americans believe that Romney is defending traditional marriage:)
Likewise the media tirelessly pretends that homosexual marriage in Massachusetts is legal. As Governor Mitt Romney knows very well, it was his illegal executive order that imposed homosexual "marriage", not the Goodridge court decision. I personally know that he was advised in advance that he was violating the state constitution. We've presented to "so-called" conservative media outlets, such as the National Review, and to pro-family organizations the irrefutable evidence that Romney is the founding father of homosexual "marriage" and that he has committed an impeachable act by violating several articles of the state constitution.
The real tragedy is that many pro-family groups and the conservative media continue to cover up for Romney and ignore the plain meaning of the Massachusetts Constitution, which says that neither the governor nor any court can strike down laws. Homosexual "marriage" is still illegal in Massachusetts, yet some conservatives pretend it is legal.
So what we're seeing is a catastrophic surrender by pro-family organizations and conservative media that we are trusting to defend our values, our religious freedom, our parental rights and constitutional law. We're seeing conservative lawyers mislead people -- defending flagrant violations of a state constitution as somehow legal and binding. These are lawyers who, if you ask them, have to admit they've never even read the Massachusetts Constitution.
The cause of this is a desperate need among socially and professionally ambitious conservatives to be accepted by the establishment. But they are covering up a huge political lie that is destroying the culture and the constitutional law that our children were supposed to inherit from us. By covering up Gov. Romney's betrayal of the constitution and the family values he proclaims while touring through conservative primary states, conservatives are engaging in a colossal surrender of all that we owe our children.
Mitt Romney's Big Lie is one of the worst things that has ever happened to constitutional law and traditional values in the United States. I assure, you, Ted Kennedy could only dream of what Mitt Romney is pulling off before our very eyes and with the help of many prominent conservatives.

Marriage Amendment Coverage in Globe Tells Only Half the Story
The Globe does note Rep. John Rogers' interview in Bay Windows (which we wrote about last week), where he probably too hastily confirmed the rumor that the homosexual caucus will sing songs on the State House steps and prevent a quorum at the ConCon, thus avoiding a vote. They know they have the majority to achieve this, but are unsure they have the 151 votes to block the amendment's required 50 votes.
But the Globe does not mention that VoteOnMarriage is item #20 on the ConCon calendar for that day -- while item #19 is the amendment with a pure definition of marriage. We filed it (#19) as a bill -- to become a statute, not an amendment! And why did homosexual activist Senator Barrios turn it into an amendment?
Let's see ... If Senate President Travaglini goes down the ConCon calendar items in order, #19 will come up for a vote first. It would define marriage as one man + one woman, no "civil unions", no allowance for the homosexual "marriages" which have occurred since May 2004. This amendment would require a majority -- 101 -- to pass, which almost certainly is not there. So the homosexual lobby knows they have the votes to defeat #19.
So how about this scenario: The ConCon goes right down the list, gets to #19, votes it down, then adjourns. Then no one can say they didn't take up a marriage amendment. And no voters can say they weren't allowed a voice (through their reps and senators).
The silver linings in this scenario are: (1) We'd have a recorded vote showing exactly where every legislator stands on marriage; (2) The terribly flawed VoteOnMarriage amendment would disappear.
Yesterday our legislators were smelling bouquets delivered by homosexual activists on the 2nd anniversary of the phony "marriages". How many more bouquets, and campaign contributions, will be delivered on July 12?

More "Gay" Health Risks Reported
First, CDC releases data on rare STD found in gay men (5-10-06). "...(CDC) told press about the recent outbreak of a sexually transmitted disease called lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) among gay and bisexual men in the United States, primarily in New York City. The disease, which is caused by a form of Chlamydia bacteria, can cause inflammation and bleeding of the rectum and colon, and CDC officials believe it is transmitted through anal sex. Up until 2004, when cases of LGV were first diagnosed among MSM in the U.S., the disease was largely prevalent in parts of Africa, Asia and South America but rarely seen in this country."
Also, CDC conference shows rise in syphilis in gay men (5-11-06). "... in 2005 infections among MSM [men who have sex with men] took a sharp upward turn, increasing by 87 percent. ...another challenge to fighting the epidemic among MSM is that more than half the men testing positive for syphilis reported anonymous sex partners, making partner notification efforts more difficult. ...MSM are less likely than their heterosexual peers to be diagnosed with syphilis during the primary stage of the disease, when it is most infectious."
Another "gay" newspaper, InNewsWeekly, notes the ongoing problem in that community with drug addiction, specifically crystal meth.
"Crystal meth is really different," says Jonathan Scott ... While Scott agrees that alcohol is still the number one offender in the GBLT community, he is finding men, and women, who become solely entwined in methamphetamine's grip. "We are seeing gay men lose partners, homes and jobs with an incredible acceleration.... crystal use can affect a broad economic swatch, like alcoholism and cocaine use, it has a particular stranglehold on the gay male community in New England. This drug at this time mixed with HIV is deadly... It can dramatically rob people of what they have."

"Transgenders" at Harvard
Remember that Harvard's official seal proclaims VERITAS (TRUTH). Curiously, Harvard is ready to deny that humans are created either male or female. Why can't those really smart people get this self-evident truth?
There's even a list of all the 91 "gender non-specific bathrooms" on campus!
From the Harvard Crimson, April 12, 2006:
Harvard announced yesterday that it would amend its University-wide non-discrimination policy to protect “gender identity,” following growing pressure to safeguard the rights of transgender students and staff.
“Amending the non-discrimination policy to include gender identity is intended to reaffirm that all members of the Harvard community, including those who are transgendered, should be judged on their own merits, not their status,” said University spokesman Joe Wrinn. Harvard joins 52 other universities, including Brown and Cornell, in amending its policy.
The decision was announced this afternoon to members of the Transgender Task Force (TTF)——a group of students, staff, faculty, and alumni who has advocated for the inclusion of gender identity since 1997——in a meeting with Robert W. Iuliano ’83, University vice president and general counsel. ...
The University’s announcement only included gender identity, leaving out gender expression from the wording of the amended policy. ...
“Discrimination of housing, bathroom use, locker rooms, any gender space is a reality for many transgender students,” said Harvard Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA) co-chair, Ryan A. Thoreson ’07, who is also a member of TTF. “The non-discrimination code goes about a way of addressing that kind of discrimination and violence on campus.”
But some TTF members say this change in the University’s non-discrimination policy doesn’t go far enough in creating a safe community for transgender students.

Who Are Financial Supporters of "QueerToday" and BAGLY?
Some companies are just plain scared of lawsuits, so cave to every possible request from radical homosexuals. They curry favor in the homosexual community by throwing enormous donations to their radical groups. Then there are wealthy and multimillionaire GLBT business people who give to GLBT groups.
Now, Mark is employed as office manager at BAGLY, which receives lots of donations from corporate sources. Who's paying his salary?

Mass. Legislature's Scheme to Scuttle VoteOnMarriage Amendment
One of our warnings all along has been that the Legislature would find one way or another to kill the amendment in its cradle. Sure enough, a former ally of the pro-family movement who's now gone over to the dark side, Rep. John Rogers, lays out the scenario for scuttling the amendment when the ConCon reconvenes this July 12.
There are other scenarios as well, including the pending SJC ruling on the constitutionality of the measure; and the possible use of our bill H653 defining marriage, illegally turned into an amendment proposal by homosexual activist Sen. Barrios.
Note the whining about how emotionally taxing this marriage issue is for our poor legislators! They just can't be bothered with this question, which has the power to destroy social stability in America! Later in the article, Rogers claims he's "grown" as a legislator, and his powers of judgment have matured. But he admits his emotional capacity for any serious debate has clearly diminished. We ask again: Where are the manly men? Have we no leaders with emotional stamina, principles, courage, or intellect in this state?
From Bay Windows, 5-11-06:
Leader in anti-gay marriage legislation outlines way to kill measure at the ConCon
In one of the most significant shifts in the battle to preserve equal marriage in Massachusetts, House Majority Leader John Rogers (D-Norwood) has come out in opposition to the initiative petition for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. The Legislature is expected to vote on the initiative petition when the constitutional convention (ConCon) convenes July 12. But Rogers said he would not be surprised if the measure is killed through a procedural maneuver.
Marriage equality proponents need 151 votes to defeat the amendment. But Rogers said he does not believe there are 151 lawmakers who would vote it down. He notes, however, that if there is no quorum of legislators when the ConCon convenes, no formal business could be conducted “and therefore the question will not be advanced through a procedural tactic,” he explained. So if 100 or more legislators don’t show up for the ConCon, the measure would die.
When asked if he believed it would be fair to kill the amendment that way, Rogers answered: “It’s within the rules to do it. This is not Texas where the constitution allows a senate president or presiding officer or even a governor to compel the presence [of lawmakers],” he said in a reference to a group of Texas state legislators who in 2003 prevented a vote on a controversial redistricting plan by fleeing to Oklahoma....
“Legislators won’t be hiding in Oklahoma,” Rogers predicted of the next ConCon. “In fact, they’ll be standing right in front of the State House steps probably singing freedom songs and hugging one another in plain sight, not cowering. If members of the constitutional convention want to do that, then the constitution contemplates that activity and that is perfectly acceptable as constitutional behavior. So that’s more than likely, at this point if I had to guess, that that’s what happens.”
Asked if he sensed an appetite in the Legislature to continue to debate the gay marriage issue at this point, Rogers acknowledged that issue is “emotionally exhausting” to many legislators and that the lengthy deliberations involve “painful divisions within one’s district and in the Commonwealth.” Most members, he concluded, would rather not deal with the issue....

Bizarre Event at MassYouthPride OK with Governor Romney?
Does Gov. Romney still think his Governor's Commission on Gay & Lesbian Youth is doing good work? We ask him to look again. Here is a profile of the person behind one of Youth Pride's big events, Gunner Scott of GenderCrash.com (a.k.a. ButchDykeBoy) who's running a session called "Words of Wisdom." Here's a person the Governor's Commission is presenting to teens as a courageous, admirable, and worthy of imitation.
Bear in mind it's not only on Youth Pride day that the kids encounter this stuff. It's what's being pushed by the Commission and the radical groups it works with all year long, through gay clubs in the high schools, the Day of Silence, the GLSEN Boston conference, school diversity days, and surreptitious curriculum inserts.
PLEASE, Gov. Romney, PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT'S GOING ON IN OUR SCHOOLS!
TransNation: Crashing gender boundaries
(Bay Windows, 1-26-06)
... Scott believes that there is a whole group of people who are trans amorous (even if those individuals don’t comprise an identifiable community) and these “transam” folks also face transphobia. Scott, who now identifies as a genderqueer female-to-masculine person, speaks from experience on both sides of that romantic situation.
“Before I came out as trans I was partnered with a transwoman. I was lesbian-identified and I lost more [queer] friends being with her than I did when I first came out [as trans].” Scott hopes that his trans activism will help create a world in which all people feel free to live in the identity that they most relate to....
“We are still a pretty racially divided city, both mainstream and GLBT and you can see that playing out in the trans community as well. I think that in some places that transwomen have been accepted into some lesbian and dyke spaces like the Dyke March and other things. And then in other spaces it’s not so accepted. There are definitely gay FTMs who are in the gay male community that have made a space for themselves and aren’t necessarily spending a lot of time in the FTM community but are in the non-trans gay male community. So I think it’s like having to choose which label is going to be predominant. There’s not a lot of space for someone to be their whole selves. There is [still] homophobia within the trans community; there’s transphobia in the gay and lesbian community.”

How Is "King and King" about Sex?
I find it unfortunate that you don't allow comments on your blog, it would be nice to see an actual dialogue instead of one man's views on the "gay agenda." I read your post on the book "King and King" and you say that the book is about sex. I ask you, is any book that features a family about sex? Or just the ones that feature people you don't like? -Josh
First of all, it has nothing to do with "people we don't like". There are plenty of heterosexual married people we can't stand. We are talking about marriage as an institution, not about the homosexual individuals involved in whatever domestic arrangements they choose.
You can always try a search on the blog for related articles. Try this one: "Yes, This Kindergarten Book IS About Sex" from last August, a few months into the David Parker/Lexington school story, where his son was given the book "Who's In a Family?".
Opening up this blog to comments simply invites a flood of hate mail. (We tried it.) If you want to communicate with us, use the link in the right column. We try to respond to any reasonable email, and post reasonable questions of interest. (We will also post hate mail if it's entertaining enough.)
Good Riddance to Radical Boston College Prof Resigning over Condi
But are we to credit such a statement from a sex-obsessed professor of English who writes stories on "Anal Sex in Estonia" where we learn the French slang for sodomy? Is this what students get for $40,000+ per year at this Catholic university? We think BC will be much better off without this fellow teaching their students how to think and write as he does:
"Anal sex, if tactfully broached, must be made to seem sophisticated. This is accomplished, for instance, by referring to it in the French vernacular (e.g. touché du chocolat). Pain is expressed by means of different phonemes in Estonia. What sounds, to the Western ear, like a sharp moan of pleasure (phonetically: ouwhaahee) can be indicative of soft tissue trauma. Displays of affection are discouraged during the sex act."

The Buck Still Stops with Gov. Romney on "Gay" Extremism in Mass.
Article 8 / MassResistance presents sickening background of this weekend's "Youth Pride" event, by Governor's Commission for Gay & Lesbian Youth."
Gov. Romney reacts by taking steps to disband Commission -- but caves in to pressure from homosexual lobby. Instead, is asking gay activists running the commission to "refocus their resources." (Is this leadership?)
CLICK HERE to see some of what we presented to the Romney administration this week.
MassResistance has been very busy the past few days exposing the depths of depravity behind the so-called "safe schools" movement in Massachusetts. We've been in the Governor's office, forcing him to confront what the "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" is really all about. At first, it appeared the Governor understood, and decided to disband the Commission yesterday. But then, he apparently decided he could work out some sort of compromise with the extremist homosexual movement.
MassResistance would like to remind the Governor that no compromise with evil is possible! We can't negotiate with the Islamic terrorists, which we hope he understands if he's elected President. And we can't compromise with domestic terrorists!
Keep tuned to this developing story at our website:
Also, see the AP story that ran last night, and the Boston Globe story from this morning.

Homosexual Parenting: One Child's Experience
I’m speaking as a child who was not allowed to talk about what it’s like to grow up in a same-sex household. I loved my dad, and cared about his partners who have died of AIDS, so I can’t be politically correct. I have to speak up when legislation will inevitably put children at risk physically and psychologically.
Why doesn’t the public hear from more people in your situation?
It’s an extremely sensitive subject. It took me until I was in my late 20s to begin to deal with it. I haven’t met another adult child who didn’t love their parent, and often they won’t come forward until that parent has died. Sometimes the adult child won’t talk because they fear either hurting other family members or retribution from their own families.
What are your feelings toward your dad?
I came to deeply love and compassionately understand him before he died in 1991, sharing his life regrets with me. As a child, he had been sexually and physically abused by older males. He suffered from depression, anger, suicidal tendencies and sexual compulsions.
Do any incidents stick in your mind that you feel comfortable sharing?
We went to vacation spots that weren’t typical family places. One was a gay nude beach at Hanlan’s Point, Toronto, which often was raided by police, but now it’s legally “clothing optional.” By age 10, I was exposed to a sex shop and a gay cruising area. The boundaries between private and public sex were broken. There was cross-dressing, and gender-neutral aspects. I grew up feeling very confused about my own sexuality.

MassResistance Trip to ConCon Cancelled!
We were looking forward to paying $20 for parking and remembering to leave our Swiss Army knife, mace, etc. behind so we could get through the State House security tomorrow! We really wanted to see what Cambridge Sen. Jarrett ("married to another man") Barrios had up his sleeve with OUR H653, the pure definition of marriage which WE filed to become a statute (NOT an amendment) -- and Barrios illegally, surreptitiously turned into a proposed Constitutional amendment! Was he somehow going to scuttle the VoteOnMarriage's amendment through the device of the mutated H653? Well, we just have to wait until July to find out.
Lawmakers postpone constitutional convention until July
May 9, 2006 - Associated Press
BOSTON -- Lawmakers will wait until July to consider several proposedconstitutional amendments, including making health care access a right andoutlawing gay marriage.
Senate President Robert Travaglini said Tuesday that the constitutional convention scheduled for Wednesday would be postponed because the Senate iscurrently preparing its budget and advancing "other important initiatives." "It would be prudent to postpone the constitutional convention until a later date in July," he said in a statement.
The Supreme Judicial Court is currently weighing a lawsuit by gay marriage activists which could make the proposed gay marriage constitutional amendment moot. The amendment would define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but gay marriage supporters argue that it would violate the state constitution, which bars any citizen-initiated amendment that seeks to reverse a judicial ruling.

Governor Romney Instituted "Gay Marriage" in Massachusetts
We're all involved in an elaborate "Emperor-Has-No Clothes" charade, informed parties knowing full well that homosexual "marriage" is still not legal. As in the fairy tale, most -- but not all of us -- are keeping quiet. And the fantasy is being played out due only to the unilateral actions of Governor Romney. He ordered the printing of "Partner A/Partner B" marriage licenses, and ordered that all Justices of the Peace and Town Clerks cooperate with the fantasy of "marrying" homosexual partners. He did not have to do this. The Court did not order him to do so, and there was in fact no "homosexual marriage" LAW he had to uphold!
Let's go back to a news story that appeared on the day of the Goodridge ruling (Nov. 18, 2003) from our venerable Supreme Judicial Court. Before all the spin began, WCVB News Center 5 in Boston reported:
State's Highest Court Says 'Yes' To Gay Marriage
Legislature Has 180 Days To Decide On Amending Constitution
[Note: It does not say that Gov. Romney has 180 days to decide!]
M.R.F. Buckley, Staff Writer
POSTED: 10:34 am EST November 18, 2003
UPDATED: 6:35 am EST November 19, 2003
BOSTON -- Massachusetts highest court ruled Tuesday that it is illegal under the state's constitution to ban gay marriages, but left it up to the state Legislature to decide how the state will amend its Constitution to legalize gay marriages or unions. [Note: The Court ordered the Legislature -- not the Governor -- to act. The Court had NOT legalized "gay marriages", but recognized the Legislature as the branch which must do so. Though whether the Court even had this authority to order the Legislature is another question!]
... The SJC ruled in a 4-3 decision that the Legislature now has 180 days to act on the state's Constitution. ... The court went on to say that it's up to the Legislature to decide whether same sex couples can legally marry in the state. "We declare that barring an individual from the protections, benefits, and obligations of civil marriage solely because that person would marry a person of the same sex violates the Massachusetts Constitution ... Entry of judgment shall be stayed for 180 days to permit the Legislature to take such action as it may deem appropriate in light of this opinion." [And if the Legislature did nothing, what could the Court do to enforce its ruling?]
Gov. Mitt Romney, who opposes gay marriage, offered swift reaction. He said he will do everything he can to prevent gay marriages in the state, saying he disagreed with the SJC decision and will put forth an amendment to limit the legal definition of marriage in the state. [But Romney, while at first appearing to recognize that legislative action was required, went on to facilitate "homosexual marriage" without any legislative action! Filing an amendment to protect marriage is a far cry from printing licenses and issuing orders for "homosexual marriages" to commence, which Romney did do in May 2004.]
"Marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman and the exact equivalent to marriage is also reserved to a man and a woman. Over the next several months I'll work together with Legislative leadership and other legislators and community leaders to decide what kind of statute we can fashion which is consistent with the law. We obviously have to follow the law as provided by the Supreme Judicial Court, even if we don't agree with it, we're going to follow it in terms of preparing legislation and we'll have legislation which conforms to the law. [What "law"? There was only a court ruling! If there were already "law" handed down by the Court, why would the Legislature have to act?] But we will, at the same time, initiate a constitutional amendment process, and that constitutional amendment process will be consistent with what I think the feelings are of the people of the commonwealth, and of course, the entire sweep of recorded history," said Romney. ...
"This is sounding an awful lot like Vermont," said David Yas of Lawyer's Weekly. "The SJC stopped short of giving a blanket rights of all gay couples to marry and instead sending it to the Legislature for what will ultimately be some sort of compromise. In Vermont, this is more or less what happened." Yas predicted Massachusetts could ultimately end up with a civil union law for gays, similar to what Vermont approved. ... [Yas recognized that only the Legislature was called upon by the Court to act, and that the Court did not implement "gay marriage".]

The Buck Stops with Gov. Romney: BAGLY's Gay/Trans Parade & Prom
The Youth Pride parade hits the streets of Boston next Saturday, May 13. That evening, the BAGLY queer/trans prom will be held at Boston City Hall.
Massachusetts Governors have issued proclamations supporting the Youth Pride event every year -- that is, until Article 8/MassResistance sent a little communication to Governor Romney's office last year. While he had issued a proclamation his first year in office, he declined to proclaim "Youth Pride Day" his second year.
Sadly, we see that this year the Youth Pride group has been allowed to issue an official press release from the Governor's office, under the "authority" of the "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth." The Governor's name and seal are at the top of the page. The buck stops with him. Why did he allow this? Will he step in to stop this horrible event?
The press release says: " 'One of the goals of Youth Pride is to unite the very diverse youth from across Massachusetts and beyond, and celebrate the wisdom, love and courage they have gained throughout their lives so far,' says Mass Youth Pride Committee member Timothy James Gallant." The event will feature "Gender Crash" in their "Words of Wisdom" segment. [Gender Crash calls itself the "intersection of Boston's queer, transgender, and gender queer communities."]
From the Mass Youth Pride announcement: On Saturday, May 13th the MA Youth Pride Committee will transform the Boston Common into “Rainbow City” for the 12th Annual Youth Pride Celebration.
In celebration of their lives and diversity, GLBTQ youth and their supporters will gather by the thousands to kick off Massachusetts' 12th annual Youth Pride and this year’s event promises to be a smash!
The day will be hosted by drag king Heywood Wakefield (Aliza Shapiro) and the schedule is as follows:
12pm- Rally at the Parkman Bandstand on Boston Common with featured speakers on the topics of Wisdom, Love and Courage. Awards in those same categories will be presented to people who have been an inspiration to the GLBTQ community.
Following the rally, the Boston Women's Rainbow Chorus will perform numbers from The Wizard of Oz and The Wiz as our 'Lollipop Kids' prepare to set off along the red-brick Freedom Trail, past the golden 'Oz-like' dome of the Massachusetts State House and through the streets of Downtown Boston. [Yes, they've transformed our state into a fantasy-world freak show.]
Upon returning to the Common, the celebration will continue with a music and resource festival. The festival will feature interactive games and activities as well as a chance to purchase goods from various vendors, including some of our very own youth vendors.
Admission to this event is free.
Youth Pride is the oldest and largest event for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer youth and their allies in the nation. [A big thanks to Gov. William Weld!] A youth driven and youth organized event, this year's Youth Pride theme- "Rainbow City"- was chosen by the Massachusetts Youth Pride Committee to celebrate the diverse identities and shared spirit of GLBTQ youth. The MAYPC invites everyone to come and support GLBTQ youth while discovering that there is no place like Youth Pride!

Gay & Lesbian Bar Association: "As Queer as It Gets"
Try as we might, we keep missing gala events! First it was PFLAG's back-to-back fundraisers, then we missed the 26th anniversary celebration for BAGLY, honoring Rep. Alice Wolf of Cambridge (who recently tried to sneak by a bill requiring sex ed/homosex ed indoctrination from the earliest grades).
Now we find out too late that we could have attended the annual Mass. Gay & Lesbian Bar Association Dinner. ("MLGBA promotes the administration of justice throughout Massachusetts for all persons without regard to their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression." And that just about covers everything.) This was the group SJC Chief Justice Margaret Marshall promised to support back in 1999, appearing as their keynote speaker. She then went on to keep her promise. All highly unethical and contrary to the Code of Judicial Conduct, of course. (But this is Massachusetts...)
The keynote speaker at the MGLBA dinner, one Rachel Maddow, "is queer, very queer," according to our very queer source. She's apparently on MSNBC nightly at 11pm with Tucker Carlson (but who with a normal life can stay up that late?). Mark, at our very queer source, writes:
Rachel's keynote speech was important for the gay community of Massachusetts to hear. She spoke about our need to fight back against an administration that ignores the rule of law, rather than wasting our time responding to attacks from Rick Santorum. She said we should be proud to be different, proud to be a minority, and not obsess over assimilating. "We will never be normal," she yelled. [emphasis added]
After the event Rachel talked with Jenn ["a queer femme"] and I [sic] about how she agrees that if we look at all of our struggles through the singular lense of gay marriage it will hurt us as a community, we must broaded [sic] our scope and form coalitions.
Grace Sterling Stowell also gave an inspiring speech in which she encouraged the audience to think about the needs of LGBT Youth and the Trans Community who are so often forgotten by the mainstream gay community. [Check out "her" speech at last year's GLSEN conference!]
Larry Kessler also received an award. Larry has been an anti-war activist, founded organizations to feed the hunger and shelter the poor, and founded the Aids Action Committee of Massachusetts [publisher of the Little Black Book].
Overall the speeches and awardees were as queer as it gets.

"King and King" About "Family"? NO...
So we say even "Who's In a Family?" is about human sexuality, because when a young child from a normal background is forced to focus on two mommies or two daddies with their children, they will naturally find it strange. Then their thoughts inevitably move on to how two mommies or two daddies can make babies. "Do they kiss like my mommy and daddy? Do they sleep together?", etc. But it's still not about sex, say the GLBTQIPs!
But now the GLBTQIPs are really pushing it. "King and King", the latest tool of indoctrination in the Lexington schools, is about two young princes who fall in love and get "married." It is "not about sex but about family," they still say.
But where, we ask, are the two kings' children? Is a male couple engaging in sodomy a "family"? Is that all that the word "family" now requires? How is this book about "different kinds of families" that children see in their own neighborhoods? The only reference to "family" in this story book is the strained relationship between the prince his mother, the chattering, overbearing queen. (Very interesting. No father around, a nagging mother he can't stand ... but that's a topic for another day.)

Proof: Homosexual "Marriage" Still Not Legal in Massachusetts
[Filed by the homosexual lobby:]
H977 / S967 (Still in Judiciary Committee) -- Would "officially" legalize homosexual marriage. The homosexual lobby apparently realizes that the SJC decision did not actually change any law. Thus, they want to make it "official" law -- which it ISN'T now!
An Act TO PROTECT MASSACHUSETTS FAMILIES THROUGH EQUAL ACCESS TO CIVIL MARRIAGE. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
SECTION 1. Chapter 207 is hereby amended by adding the following new section:
Section 37A. Any person who otherwise meets the eligibility requirements of this chapter may marry any other eligible person regardless of gender.
[Filed by MassResistance:]
H654 (Still in Judiciary Committee) -- Nullification of same-sex "marriages".
An ACT TO CLARIFY THE STATUS OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGES PERFORMED UNDER PUBLIC AUTHORITY IN MASSACHUSETTS SINCE MAY 17, 2004. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
It is hereby declared that all same-sex marriages performed under public authority in Massachusetts since May 17, 2004 are without statutory basis; and no marriage performed in Massachusetts will be considered legally binding which is not established by Massachusetts statute, not withstanding licensing through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, or city or town clerk.

How Many Homosexuals Really Want to "Marry"?
Apr 26, 2006
Study Assesses How Many Gays Marry if Legal
By DAVID CRARYAP National Writer
NEW YORK (AP) -- A new study attempts to gauge the percentage of gays and lesbians who have chosen to marry in places where that option is legal, with estimates ranging from as little as 2 percent to more than 16 percent, depending on the location.
A co-author of the report, released Wednesday, said both sides in the gay marriage debate may take heart from the findings.
The Institute for Marriage and Public Policy, which opposes gay marriage, reviewed data from the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and Massachusetts, all of which allow same-sex partners to wed.
In each case, the study offered a range of estimates of the percentage of gays who had married, based on varying approximations - from 1 percent to 5 percent - of how many gays were in the general population.
In the Netherlands, where 8,127 same-sex couples married from April 1, 2001, through last December, the study said this represented between 2.6 percent and 6.3 percent of the country's gays and lesbians.
The study estimated that between 2 percent and 5 percent of Belgium's gays and lesbians, and 5.9 percent to 16.7 percent of those in Massachusetts had married. Same-sex marriage became legal in Massachusetts in May 2004, and 7,341 gay and lesbians couples had wed there through last December. [Read more ...]

Brave New World = Fatherless Children
Life Without Father
The tykes' smiling pictures confront us in today's Washington Post. They are the children of "Donor 401." He is a German, we know, and he's a sperm donor who has fathered at least 25 children--that we know of. Fairfax (VA) Cryobank is proud of its role in this project. Still anonymous, Donor 401 is nonetheless a hot commodity on TV talk shows. The kids shown appear to be blond, blue-eyed.
Women who have been inseminated with his sperm have appeared with Meredith Vieira on "The View." The "Today" show featured a story on this phenomenon. And Comedy Central's Steve Colbert claimed facetiously to be Donor 401. "Obviously, the kids will ask questions someday," said one of the women who set up an online registry to link up the children who are biologically half-brothers and sisters, "and having this connection will help." Oh yes, they will definitely ask questions someday. And some of these parents may not be entirely prepared to answer.
We used to view with horror the idea of intentionally depriving children of a relationship with their father--and with their brothers and sisters. Now it has become almost a sport, a lark, a subject for daytime TV talk show fun. It is a direct and dehumanizing attack on the family.
Mushy Republicans Again
"Bush DID make history on the White House lawn...and every politically astute liberal knows it."
By John Haskins (April 29, 2006)
More denial, folks. As always, every politically aware liberal and homosexual activist in the country knows what many on "Our Side" have scrambled to deny. Here's a little reality pill to nibble on: another incremental surrender DID occur and history WAS made in this White House Easter Egg Roll, in an almost irreversible way. Homosexuals, bearing their trophy children — helpless prisoners in the War Against Future Generations — were welcomed without so much as blink of an eye at a family event on a high Christian holy day.
Make no mistake: those who plot and scheme tirelessly against the innocence of our children, and against our rights as parents to defend them and who have sworn enmity against our God, know that they won that Easter egg roll and we lost. No, once again, we didn't lose. We surrendered. Our specialty. And we then chastised those among us who warned against one more polite, quiet, peaceful, dignified, lazy, little surrender.
Why don't pro-family people understand how much the "little" things like this advance society's acceptance of homosexual "families," homosexual child rearing and homosexual "marriages?" How blind can we be? ...
