The Attack on Christmas Continues – Boston Style

Ready for a Boston-style assault on Christmas? Check out “The Slutcracker” coming to the Somerville Theatre. It’s a celebration of strippers, sadomasochism, transsexuals, and “the carefree realm of sexual fantasy.” Of course, the blurbs in Boston Magazine, the Boston Herald, or the Boston Globe only hint at how raunchy it is.

Unbelievably, the Boston Herald even jokes about sexual abuse of children in its Holiday Arts Preview:

And if the Santa Claus in your life needs some lovin’, “The Slutcracker” may be just the thing to set the mood. A parody retelling of the classic, written and directed by Vanessa White, this sexy, freaky, holiday, zeitgeist spectacular runs at the Somerville Theatre Dec. 10-20. Let’s just hope Drosselmeyer doesn’t do anything illegal with the kids.

What a holiday message.

Boston Magazine downplays the content:

Bringing Burlesque back to Boston, The Slutcracker dance-theater production features can-can dancers, drag kings, hoopers, ballerinas, acrobats, belly dancers, and more. In the "adults only" performance, the virginal Clara takes a detour from her trip through The Land of Snow and The Land of Sweets to embark on a journey into her own sexual awakening.

A photo from the 2008 production rehearsal illustrates the S+M content: 

Instead of dancing around a nutcracker, "Slutcracker" provides a giant candycane dildo:

All worthy of praise from the Boston press:

“This is some next-level shit.”Boston Phoenix
“Destined to be a holiday classic.” – Fox 25 News

The Boston Globe recommends “Slutcracker” along with other “edgy” holiday time shows, beginning with a mention of a "holiday" event at the vile Ramrod gay bar. Also:

The Salem Theatre Company is offering … Jeff Goode’s “The Eight: Reindeer Monologues,’’ a show open only to audience members 18 and older. “Monologues’’ follows a scandal at the North Pole when one of Santa’s reindeers accuses him of sexual harassment. The company is calling its holiday programming “Naughty & Nice.’’ Gary LaParl, the Salem company’s executive director [says] “Christmas isn’t always about the nice stuff. We wanted to do something a little edgier.’’ The same can be said for “The Slutcracker,’’ a holiday burlesque show running at the Somerville Theatre next month. It’s definitely only for viewers 18 and older.
The “carefree sexual fantasy” show stars a troupe of strippers and a transsexual male-to-female stripper who brags of working “in NYC as a professional domme for various houses of domination” and proudly relates his “safe sex” education work:

I began volunteering at Gay Men’s Health Crisis as a Peer for the House of Latex Project in 1998 and eventually became a full time staff member. I was “Big Sis” of the House of Latex, a legendary ever-walking, ever-serving HIV prevention and education house that represents at balls within the ballroom community.... I have been an advocate for the health and wellness of the Transgender community and Sex Industry workers since 1997. I am very well-known and respected within the LGBTQ community nationally.... I became a full-time staff member at Cambridge Cares About AIDS in March 2009 as the Health Educator and Web Designer of TransCEND; a community-based HIV prevention and health education program of Cambridge Cares About AIDS (CCA) by and for transgender women. TransCEND provides 1 on 1 counseling and group support, HIV counseling and testing, referrals to transgender friendly legal and medical providers, safer sex and injection supplies, hygiene products, complimentary cosmetics and have a welcoming community safe space.

Massachusetts taxpayer funds have gone to Cambridge Cares About AIDS (associated with AIDS Action Committee of Mass.). Note that this transsexual exhibitionist is listed as Health Educator/Web Designer for the TransCEND program at "Cambridge Cares About AIDS."

Concord-Carlisle High School's “Falsettos” Promotes Polyamory, Bisexuality and Homosexuality

Concord-Carlisle High School is promoting a take-down of family values on Thanksgiving Day – engineered by Mr. Peter Atlas, an old friend of Kevin Jennings (Obama’s “Safe Schools czar” and founder of GLSEN).

A few years back, we reported on Concord-Carlisle High School’s disgraceful hosting of the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus on Palm Sunday. Now they’re at it again. Under the direction of perennial gay-activist CCHS math teacher Peter Atlas, CCHS students are performing “Falsettos in December -- a musical pushing polyamory, bisexuality and homosexuality. Community residents are very concerned about the production’s vulgar sexuality and anti-family message. Not content with inflicting this on the community in the weeks before Christmas, the school has added a sneak preview scheduled on Thanksgiving Day

A few words on Mr. Atlas. An ally of GLSEN founder/Obama “Safe Schools czar” Kevin Jennings, both Atlas and Jennings were young gay activist teachers in Concord, Massachusetts in the 1990s. Atlas was a board member of GLSEN Boston in the 90’s.  Atlas followed the GLSEN playbook and “came out” at CCHS in 1993 in the student newspaper. He was the original adviser to Spectrum, the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club at the CCHS.

Peter Atlas, the advisor to SPECTRUM, came out by publishing a letter in his school's newspaper on National Coming Out Day. His motivation was twofold: First, he did it for the students. "It was an attempt to alleviate some of the fear, shame, loneliness, and despair of kids in the high school today that I also felt as a closeted teen." And second, he did it for himself and other staff members. "It takes much more energy to be closeted than it does to come out." He explained. "All of the energy I used in worrying that I would say the wrong thing is now freed up to do other things. I think I'm a much more effective teacher now on many levels." He said that after coming out, "I got tremendous support which surprised me.

He’s also behind a pro-homosexual teachers’ coalition there: 

Peter Atlas, a teacher at Concord-Carlisle High School, said that his school has formed a committee on Gay and Lesbian Student Safety. The committee has two faculty sub-groups in addition to the Gay/Straight Alliance. One sub-group deals with issues of Curriculum and Support by addressing ways that teachers can integrate gay and lesbian issues into the curriculum and offering faculty training, gathering resources. The second sub-group deals with Outreach to the Community by looking at ways to solicit resources and help from the community and to address concerns of the community and parents.

We’ve heard that he gave a speech at a recent CCHS commencement where he talked about “queering” math (his subject). Two years ago, the Boston Globe revealed he offers matchmaking advice to “gay” teens: 

Peter Atlas, the former adviser of Concord-Carlisle's Spectrum group, says that, increasingly, gay kids who turn up at his classroom aren't only asking questions about coming out and getting support. "They want to know where they can meet boys!" he says with a laugh.

Now Mr. Atlas is queering the school's theatre department with "Falsettos". Synopsis from Wikipedia:
It's 1979 in New York City, and Marvin, his son Jason, his psychiatrist Mendel and his male lover Whizzer are Four Jews In A Room Bitching (well, technically, Whizzer's only "half Jewish"). Marvin steps forward to explain his situation: He has left his wife, Trina, for Whizzer, but Marvin wants A Tight-Knit Family and is attempting to forge a new family situation with the addition of Whizzer, a situation no one is happy with.
Trina, on Marvin’s recommendation, pays a visit to Mendel where she wearily wonders how her life has turned out this way. Mendel, who is instantly attracted to her, tries to console her, telling her that Love is Blind. Meanwhile, Marvin and Whizzer comment on their relationship: the two have very little in common, apart from the fact that they both love fighting and are insanely attracted to each other. Both worry that The Thrill of First Love is wearing off.

Here’s a sampling of “Falsettos” song titles:
·      My Father’s a Homo
·      Everyone Hates His Parents
·      Days Like This I Almost Believe in God
·      Four Jews in a Room Bitching

And a quick look at some “Falsettos” lyrics:

My father’s a homo
My mother’s not thrilled at all
Father homo:
What about chromo-
Do they carry?
Will they carry?
Who’s the homo now?
My father said that one day I’ll grow to be president
And that idea’s not so wild
I don’t live the life of a normal child
‘Cause I’m too smart for my own good
And I’m too good for my sorry little life
My mother’s no wife
And my father’s no man
No man at all

We are manipulating people and we need to know
Our worst sides aren't ignored.
We charge ahead to show--
MENDEL: We're good in bed.
(WHIZZER puts his hand on MENDEL's shoulder.)
WHIZZER: Excel in bed.
(MARVIN puts his hand on WHIZZER's shoulder.)
MARVIN: We smell in bed.
(WHIZZER puts his hand on MARVIN's. JASON picks up the bed and hides it behind his back.)
JASON: Where is the bed?
MENDEL: I love the bed. …
Four Jews in a room bitching (wheee!)
Four Jews talking like Jew-ish men
I'm neurotic, he's neurotic,
They're neurotic, we're neurotic.
Bitch bitch bitch bitch
Funny funny funny funny.

Well, the situation’s this
It’s not tough to comprehend
I divorced my wife
I left my child
And I ran off with a friend
But I want a tight-knit family
I want a group that harmonizes
I want my wife and kid and friend
To pretend
Time will mend
Our pain.
So I make them interact
So I don’t go by the book
We all eat as one-
Wife, friend, and son-
And I sing out as I cook
“I want a tight-knit family.
I hope you all enjoy linguine.
Talk till you hear the dinner bell.
Such a dear clientele.
I swear we’re gonna come through it.
I fear we’ll probably fight,
But nothing’s impossible.
Live by your wit-“
Kid, wife, and lover will have to admit
I was right
I cushioned the fall
I want it all
I want it all
I want it…

Love is Blind 
[Wife Trina & psychiatrist Mendel]
Love is a mess
So’s my son, expressly to hurt me
Marvin, my ex-
You’ve seen him for years-
Told me over the phone to tell you my fears
Do you only treat queers?
Breathe deep, my dear
You’ll find me understanding
Your pain is a priori
Unfold you untold story
Now to break bread
Loosen your glands
Put your head in my hands
I’m everything he wanted
It’s time I put it all together
The date was set
My father let my marry
I married. I…
Then Marvin came from work
Sat me down on the bed
He told me how he loved me
How needed, that thought valued me
I have…
MENDEL:  What?
MARVIN (as Trina mouths this): Syphilis
TRINA:  He said
TRINA:  I have
MARVIN (Trina mouths):  Syphilis
TRINA:  It’s true
TRINA:  I had something rotten
Which appears thought now it’s well forgo, an’
MARVIN:  Maybe, darling, so do you
TRINA:  Maybe, darling, so do you
TRINA (to Marvin):  I am probably diseased
MENDEL:  You’re a lovely girl
TRINA (to Marvin):  And so easily appeased
MENDEL:  What a lovely girl, though she’s probably diseased
TRINA:  He took pains to not excite us
He explains I’ve…
MARVIN:  Hepatitis
Hepa hepa hepatitis hepatitis hepatitis
Love is blind
Love can tell a million stories
Love’s unkind
Spiteful in a million ways

I’d like to be a princess on a throne
To have a country I can call my own
And a king
Who’s lusty and requires a fling
With a female thing
Great, men will be men
Let me turn on the gas
I saw them in the den with
Marvin grabbing Whizzer’s ass…
I only want to love a man who can love me
Or like me
Marvin was never mine
He took his meetings in the boy’s latrine
I used to cry
He’d make a scene
I’d rather die
Than dry-clean
Marvin’s wedding gown…

Mass. House of Representatives Did NOT Issue Transgender Proclamation

The Bay Windows headline reads:
"House of Reps. offers proclamation in support of Transgender Day of Remembrance"
 (Hannah Clay Wareham, Bay Windows (11-17-09).

Problem is, the House of Representatives does not issue proclamations (though the Governor does). We just called the House Clerk who said there was no official House action along these lines on the 17th, and the House was only in "informal session" that day.  So, was the House Clerk wrong?

The Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition has posted a congratulatory document signed by Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo and two radical Reps. (Sciortino and Rushing), along with a state senator, and says the "entire membership [of the House] extends its very best wishes and expresses the hope for future good fortune and continued success in all endeavors."

Sounds like every Representative supports the transgender rights bill? and they've already essentially voted on it? Why don't they just issue a document saying Bill H1728 is hereby passed with a few signatures thrown on?

If you read the Bay Windows story closely, it sounds like a few radical Reps posed for a photograph somewhere in the State House with Gunner Scott, the female-to-male head of the Massachusetts Transgender Coalition. She loves to get her face out there.

Rep. Carl Sciortino (right), along with other Representatives and State Senators gathered at the State House on Tuesday, acknowledged the work of Gunner Scott (left) and the MTPC.

"Members of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) and family members of those who have been murdered for being transgender gathered at the Massachusetts State House on Nov. 17 to witness a proclamation given in support of this week’s upcoming Transgender Day of Remembrance by the House of Representatives.

"Rep. Carl Sciortino (D) offered introductions at the meeting that aimed to 'honor the celebrations and awareness happening this week' and showcase the 'very real stories of struggle and pain and mourning.' ..."

Romney Strikes Again: Pushes "Gay & Transgender Rights" Ordinance in Salt Lake City

When we heard the news that the city council in Salt Lake City just approved a "gay rights" ordinance (covering both "sexual orientation" and "gender identity"), we knew in our gut that Mitt Romney was behind it. Remember, he's running for President in 2012. He wouldn't want to appear a "bigot".

Sure enough... A homosexual blog connected to an anti-Mormon documentary  ("8: The Mormon Proposition") on the Proposition 8 defeat of "gay marriage" in California posted this:

On November 10, 2009 several highly placed people featured in the upcoming documentary film 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION were contacted by well-placed people inside the Mormon Church in anticipation of an "historic statement against discrimination" to be made by the Mormon Church.

They were told, "Watch what we are about to do. You will be pleased."

At this hour gays and lesbians all over the world hope that the Mormon Church's announcement will not be yet another Mormon public relations smoke screen and result in action that will result in full marriage equality for the LGBT community world-wide.

Since the release of the trailer for 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION, intense scrutiny has been focused on Mormon involvement in the passage of Proposition 8 and allegations that the Mormon Church set up the infamous NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE which was the key player in Maine's recent ban on gay marriage.

Sources close to those who called our cast and production team alerting us to the upcoming Mormon statement on discrimination say that Mormon Mitt Romney has recently put pressure on his own church to extend an olive branch to the gay community to try and deflate the anticipated negative press that will come from the release of 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION that would likely damage his hope for a successful 2012 presidential bid.

Ironically (and we suspect in step with the Mormon's anticipated statement on discrimination) Mormon-owned KSL TV released an article on their web site saying "Romney appears to be front-runner in 2012 election."

The homosexual blog Towleroad picked up the Mitt Romney connection.

Counterfeit Marriage Rejected in Maine

Press Release from Matt Barber at Liberty Counsel:

Lynchburg, VA – Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action, issued the following statement on news that the voters of Maine have rejected counterfeit “same-sex marriage” by 53% - 47%:

“There’s good news and bad news here,” said Barber. “The good news is that even in one of the most liberal States in the Union, Maine, the people have once again rejected the ridiculous and oxymoronic notion of ‘same sex marriage.’ The momentum has again shifted – hopefully for good this time – in favor of protecting legitimate marriage. A counterfeit is a counterfeit. An orange is an orange no matter how much you want it to be a turnip. This isn’t about ‘marriage.’ It’s about hurting and broken people desperately seeking affirmation of an objectively deviant lifestyle. One that, even in their heart of hearts, they know to be a dead end. As for the militant ‘No on 1’ homosexual activists? I’m reminded of spoiled children dressing up and playing house, refusing to come in when mom calls for dinner.

“Here’s the bad news. The margin of victory could have been greater. Many behind the ‘Yes on 1’ campaign, rather than simply telling the truth, chose the Neville Chamberlain approach. They merely circled the wagons around the word ‘marriage,’ even suggesting that ‘domestic partnerships’ (‘gay marriages’ by another name) are acceptable. This makes no sense. If that’s a viable compromise, then why not simply allow 'gay' duos the word ‘marriage’? It’s an incongruity that demands an explanation. This is an historic battle for the minds and souls of our children – for our very culture. The mealy-mouthed approach must end. This is not just about ‘marriage.’ It has everything to do with forced affirmation of homosexuality – under penalty of law. Indeed everyone who fought hard to defend marriage in Maine is to be congratulated, but if it weren’t for a brave group of truth tellers – Paul Madore, Peter LaBarbera and Brian Camenker [of MassResistance] – who came to Maine in the final hour to hold a press conference and address the pink elephant in the room – homosexual deviancy and the radical ‘gay’ agenda – counterfeit marriage might have prevailed.”
