Mainstream media in Mass. starts campaign to normalize transgenderism and sex-changes for schoolchildren!
MassResistance fights back on national radio.
POSTED: February 25, 2014
This past year Massachusetts began to enforce its mandate that public schools fully accommodate the concept of "transgenderism" and cross-dressing by children. Now, a powerful campaign has been ramping up in the local mainstream media to normalize "transgenderism" and even sex-change operations for children in the eyes of the public.
As we reported last year and in our recent post on the "War on Children," schools in Massachusetts are now directed to allow so-called "transgender" students -- children who decide to "identify" as the opposite sex -- to wear opposite-sex clothes to school, use opposite-sex restrooms and locker rooms, and be called by an opposite-sex name. (California now has also mandated "transgenderism" in the public schools, and several other states are not far behind.)
But this has been happening relatively quietly. The general public still knows very little about it. But even in Massachusetts, seeing children involved in this makes people disturbed and outraged.
Thus the radical movement felt the need for a slick, effective PR campaign to change the public's attitudes. In other words, the current stream of articles and radio spots is no accident or coincidence. Like similar homosexual-themed PR campaigns, this has the fingerprints of the well-funded and well-connected homosexual-transgender groups all over it. These groups have long worked hand in glove with their allies in the mainstream. Their activists and hand-picked "experts" appear in almost all of the articles.
Softening up the public
Not long ago this concept was considered so fringe and demonic that not even the homosexual newspapers would barely touch it. But the public is now being softened up to believe that this is an everyday occurrence -- and even a "normal" part of life. There's even the constant use of the opposite-sex pronoun (i.e., "he" when referring to a girl) to play not-so-subtle tricks with your mind.
Just a few examples over the last month:
A four-part series by National Public Radio in Boston about "Nate," a girl who has decided she wants to be a boy:
* Feb. 9 - Boston Globe: "Transgender Revolutionary." Article about a "male" teacher and coach at a boys' private boarding school who is actually a woman with facial hair, who is "married" to a lesbian. She has written a book about a distant ancestor, a woman in the Revolutionary War who also dressed as a man, though later married and had children.
* February 18 - Boston Globe: "Transgender student takes national stage" One of three identical female triplets has taken hormones to grow facial hair in "his brave effort to become truly himself."
It's also happening in California, which also passed a "transgender" school law:
* February 21 - San Gabriel Valley Tribune: (Also reported in the Los Angeles Times.) "Azusa High transgender student-athlete Pat Cordova-Goff attends first practice." A boy who "identifies" as a girl is allowed to play on the school's girls' softball team, because of new California law.
A particularly disturbing aspect is the tone of all of these articles: They are celebratory of this horrible situation, as if it were a great social triumph. They include no substantial opposing viewpoints. And they are completely dispassionate about the destructive nature of the medical procedures done to these kids to "improve" them. It is pure propaganda meant to normalize something that is profoundly abnormal.
Ignoring the damage
Unfortunately, the Left only thinks about its political agenda. It has no interest in the horrible trauma and sometimes suicidal feelings down the road when a person who went through "gender change" procedures realizes that he/she made a terrible mistake that may be unrecoverable. (Among other things, some of the medical procedures given to youth cause permanent sterilization.) It doesn't "fix" the underlying problem of gender dysphoria, it only prolongs it. This has been documented at length by people like Walt Heyer and others who had hormone treatments and surgical procedures.
MassResistance fights back on national radio
On Monday February 17, Brian Camenker of MassResistance was featured on the national radio show "Crosstalk", one of the most prominent Christian radio shows in the US. The show is broadcast on 97 radio stations across the country on the VCY America network.
Most people across America are completely unaware of the extent of the homosexual and transgender assault on children in the schools -- particularly in the East Coast and West Coast where it's at its worst. But Camenker laid it out for the radio audience. It was pretty shocking to a lot of people. Afterwards, MassResistance got a lot of emails from around the country with very emotional reactions.

The propaganda will continue
Unfortunately, you can expect to see more of this in the mainstream media, even beyond Massachusetts and California. They understand that this is necessary for acceptance by the public. Like homosexuality itself, every generation normally finds these concepts unnatural and repulsive unless there is a heavy dose of propaganda and social pressure to conform. We've seen that the homosexual and transgender lobby is prepared to provide that.
Unquestioned acceptance by the liberal establishment
But in our observation, probably even more difficult and frightening for conservatives to deal with is how readily the liberals in the press, the schools, and elsewhere unquestioningly accept this complete lunacy. There appears to be no lower limit to what those people will embrace as fact, no matter how ludicrous, if it falls within the realm of political correctness.
One wonders if this is how the horrors of the 1930s in Europe and later in China and other communist countries took place so easily. It makes it all the more necessary for good people to speak out as loudly as possible.
There must be no compromise
And unfortunately, we're already seeing many pro-family groups cave in on the "transgender" issue. They disagree with it in principle but invariably refuse to challenge it with anything stronger than polite opposition to the use of "gender identity." They'll argue that "privacy" rights should be respected in restrooms and locker rooms or that "special rights" should not be granted in schools. That way, by arguing at the edges, they avoid a direct confrontation with the transgender lobby. But it's the coward's way out and in the long run hurts children terribly.
MassResistance doesn't compromise on these issues. Neither should you. This can and must be derailed.
