Testimony in support of H406 – David Parker parents’ rights bill
Submitted by Amy Contrada

The following testimony was read before the Education Committee of the Massachusetts Legislature by Amy Contrada, a mother of two children who attended Massachusetts public schools:
To the Education Committee:
In June 2008 I documented the Boston Dyke March, a vulgar and angry event. The parade start with the women chanting:
One prime recruiting zone is our schools.
Once recruited, where do these young people go?
Here’s one example. In May 2009, Youth Pride Day in Boston, was an event promoted by the Mass. Commission on Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth, and the so-called “Gay Straight Alliance” clubs in hundreds of our schools. Youth Pride Day ended with the annual “GLBT prom” at Boston City Hall. All day and into the evening, young teens mingled with the many older adults cruising the scene, including men dressed as women. And as they entered the dance floor, the children were greeted by “Mr. Boston Leather”, a proud sadomasochist, who handed them his business card. (This is all documented on the MassResistance web site.)
So not only are schools encouraging children to act out as homosexual and transgender, and meet up with adult GLBT activists, the schools are even referring them to the leather & torture scene, often without their parents’ knowledge.
The gay clubs and even high school counselors direct kids to these dangerous and decadent events. The radical organization BAGLY (Boston Alliance of Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth) is constantly recommended. Shouldn’t parents know this is going on in the schools and have some say in whether or not their child is exposed?
I believe parents should have to actively choose to have their child in a club where this information is pushed. And counselors with more traditional viewpoints should be made available in every counseling office.
H406 is the most inclusive of the parents’ rights bills you are considering, and would close the loophole that has allowed and promoted such outrages as Mr. Boston Leather’s meet-up with our children.
