Pro-family activism that makes a difference!

Phony 'anti-bullying' project founded by gay anti-Christian pornographer, pushing homosexuality on vulnerable kids.

"It Gets Better" supported by politicians, major corporations, others

POSTED: August 12, 2011

[NOTE: Parts of this article are extremely disturbing and vulgar. What follows is the latest effort by the national homosexual movement and its allies to draw in kids across America.]

A purported "anti-bullying" organization, formed less than a year ago by an angry, obscene anti-Christian homosexual activist -- which is actually pushing the acceptance homosexual sex on children -- is being promoted by several corporations, prominent politicians, the media, and now even the Boston Red Sox.

The "It Gets Better" project, under the guise of anti-bullying and suicide prevention, encourages kids to proudly "come out" as homosexual, bisexual, or transgender; to emulate homosexual or transgender adults; and to fight against "hate and intolerance" (i.e., parents and Christians with traditional values).

In May MassResistance first reported that the Old Navy Stores chain was selling "gay pride" shirts and donating a percentage of the total sales to this group. Most people were not aware that of the extent of what was happening.

Founded by very disturbed, angry, hateful, and obscene activist and pornographer

The founder, leader, and public face of "It Gets Better" is a media-savvy homosexual activist named Dan Savage. Savage is clearly an angry and obviously disturbed individual who appears to have an obsession with kids and filthy language.

Dan Savage's writings, statements, and activities are so disgusting and obscene that we're not including them here.  We've posted the unedited examples HERE. 

Here is a (relatively) PG-rated synopsis:

  • He set up a website to obscenely attack Sen. Rick Santorum using the most disgusting homosexual imagery. As you enter the website, on the "splash" screen Savage calls Santorum "the byproduct of anal sex." Savage is conducting an ongoing Internet campaign to tie Santorum's name to anal sex.

    Dan Savage on television with T-shirt advertising his campaign to connect Santorum's name to anal sex.

  • He set up a website to obscenely attack Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church. He described the church's name as a disgusting description of anal sex. Savage went on to suggest that engaging in anal sex is what Pastor Warren actually does "in private" and also what Christian teens involved with his church do when practicing abstinence. He describes this and more in a most sickening manner.

    Dan Savage posted this sickening attack on Rick Warren's Saddleback Church and on Christian kids.

  • Savage has published obscene attacks on Rep. Michele Bachmann and her husband. He writes that "Michele Bachmann's never met a ranting, raving anti-gay bigot that she wouldn't crawl into bed with." Savage calls her husband a "Queen for a Day" and a "bigot", and makes reference to "eating feces" in his rant against him. In addition, Savage celebrated an attack inside Rep. Bachmann's husband's office by homosexual activists.
  • Savage wrote about inserting a "Scott Brown action figure" into someone's rectum or vagina. (This was part of a larger discussion Savage was having about using an Oscar statuette as a sex toy.) It was this vulgar reference that Sen. Brown referenced as his reason for not joining the video by the Mass. Congressional delegation pushing "It Gets Better." [NOTE: We will be covering this more in an upcoming email.]
  • Savage said of Republicans while on a television talk show on HBO, "I wish they were all f---ing dead."
  • In 2000, Savage pretended he was a conservative and volunteered for Gary Bauer's presidential campaign. Savage wrote that while he was sick with the flu he went into Bauer's office and licked the doorknobs and Bauer's desk implements to try to make Bauer ill.
  • He writes a very raunchy, even pornographic, on-line sex column, often aimed at teenagers. In one entry, Savage advises a homosexual teenager who complains that his boyfriend does not give him the kind of anal sex he desires to "seek a partner who meets your needs" because "you're far too young to settle" for second-rate sex. In another column, he publishes a story of a heterosexual couple's anal sex adventures in a quaint B&B, where they upset the management with their noise and the filthy sheets they left behind. Another example: A young man describes his all-expense-paid trip to Paris to be a sex slave in a BDSM "dungeon." Savage seems to especially enjoy publishing letters about teenagers and depraved sex.

What the "It Gets Better" website is REALLY about . . .

On the surface it claims to be about anti-bullying and stopping gay youth suicide. But like many homosexual projects targeting kids, that's a fairly transparent front for pushing the normalization of homosexual and transgender behavior.

As we predicted a few years ago, the homosexual movement is now using the anti-bullying concerns as a cover to push their agenda to children. This is the latest permutation of the "gay student safety" strategy devised by Kevin Jennings in the 1990s to push homosexuality in the public schools.

Neither Dan Savage nor anyone else closely associated with "It Gets Better" appears to have any legitimate qualifications for working with kids, and certainly not for dealing with the behavioral and psychological issues surrounding suicide. They are simply homosexual activists. The real victims are the vulnerable kids who come to them for help.

The main messages that "It Gets Better" repeats to kids can be summarized in five points. Kids are told:

  1. Don't try to suppress your "gay" identity. You were born gay. Be out and proud of being homosexual. Don't deny it. There is a lot of emphasis on accepting your homosexuality as permanent.
  2. Adult homosexuals lead a wonderful life. Although being a "gay" kid may be very difficult, it gets much better if you just stick it out. Furthermore, you should seek out adult homosexuals like Dan Savage as mentors and role models.
  3. Anyone who does not support the homosexual movement or does not believe that homosexual behavior is normal and natural is hateful and intolerant, and wants to help kids kill themselves. This includes Christians in particular. Such people are the cause of bullying and suicide and must be fought vigorously.
  4. The antidote to bullying and suicide is (a) more homosexual programs in schools, (b) more access for to kids homosexual organizations and homosexual adults, and (c) the suppression of dissenting opinions.
  5. Any kind of sexual activity imaginable should be explored and celebrated. (The more perverted, the better.)

These five messages permeate the project. For example, from the "It Gets Better" website:

"When a gay teenager kills himself, what he's saying is that he can't picture a future for himself with joy in it to compensate for the pain in his life now," says Savage. "Gay teenagers need to know that life as an openly gay adult is wonderful... and they shouldn't be filled with despair."

They ask kids to pledge to fight "hate and intolerance":

JOIN OUR MOVEMENT - TAKE THE PLEDGE: Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors. I'll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work. I'll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that "It Gets Better."

Basically he wants kids to pledge to join him in his hateful anti-religious rants.

VIDEO that started it: Dan Savage (right) and his "husband" in his original It Gets Better video. Among other things, he blames his Catholic surroundings for his unhappiness as a child.

Partnering with GLSEN

Besides everything else, a huge red flag is the fact that the "It Gets Better" home page announces that it is "partnering" with GLSEN.

GLSEN (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network), founded by Kevin Jennings, is a national homosexual/GLBT organization that aggressively targets kids in the public schools with a range of often extremely graphic and obscene homosexual material. Examples in Massachusetts include the "Fistgate" conference and "The Little Black Book." GLSEN is known for setting up "gay straight alliance" clubs and the GLBT "Day of Silence" in high schools and middle schools around the country.

The Trevor Project -- leading kids to homosexual books & "resources"

"It Gets Better," its associated videos, and other materials direct kids to The Trevor Project, purportedly a website of "resources" for kids to go to for "crisis intervention." Under the mantra of "saving lives," it includes various emotionally charged gay-oriented videos, links to a lot of the well-known radical homosexual activist groups such as PFLAG, and story books and similar materials reinforcing homosexual behavior. There also various gay-friendly counseling services and mental health resources which support the concept of kids having a "gay identity."

Logo: The Trevor Project uses "saving young lives" as a cover for homosexual activism with kids.

In particular, The Trevor Project's reading list includes dozens of homosexual-themed books aimed at middle school and high school kids. These books are very disturbing. The general themes seem to involve a troubled or unsure kid, often who "doesn't fit in," who then finds happiness and excitement in a homosexual relationship. These books are written by homosexual activists and are pure emotional propaganda aimed directly at youth. They also often involve rejection of religion and family as a path to contentment.

Hideous "gay" books for kids: Here is a sample of what The Trevor Project and "It Gets Better" lists for troubled youth to read:

"Puppy Love" - Described by reviewer as "perhaps the world's first gay BDSM coming-of-age novel." [sadomasochism]

"Rainbow Boys" - Story of first homosexual love in high school, and getting into the cool crowd.

"Band Fags" - Boys discover it's OK to be gay in high school. Described as "an exhilarating novel about lust and love."

"A Question of Manhood" - Being gay helps 16-year-old "find a way toward becoming the man he wants to be."

"Desert Sons" - Story about steamy teenage homosexual love and sex.

"The God Box" - Teenage Christian boys find a new interpretation of Bible passages to justify their homosexual love affair. 

More books from The Trevor Project's reading list:

Dance on My Grave - Homosexual love story of two 16-year-old boys.
My Side of the Story - A 16-year-old who goes to gay bars.
Dream Boy - Love affair between two high school boys.
Bare Me Safely - Homosexual sex in a band; teenaged boy with a penchant for picking up older men.

The big lies of "It Gets Better" and "The Trevor Project"

Besides the association with Dan Savage, the messages this site gives kids are also extremely harmful. It basically enforces these big lies:

LIE #1: "You were born that way and can't change"
That is the politically correct message these days. But it flies in the face of all medical science. No legitimate study has found a "gay gene," and no one was born that way. People become addicted to homosexuality through a number of often complicated factors. And the worldwide ex-gay movement has shown that people can heal and change if they desire. (Sexual radicals themselves say that sexual orientation or expression can be "fluid" -- viz., "bisexuality.")

LIE #2: "It gets better"
No, It DOESN'T get better. Statistically it gets much worse. The numbers of diseases (from AIDS and STDs to bowel diseases, etc.) and the range of mental illnesses and addictions connected with homosexual behavior are staggering. It's commonly estimated that male homosexual behavior takes 20 years off one's life. Homosexual men commonly have hundreds (even thousands) of sexual partners and suffer from alcohol and drug problems, plus high rates of partner abuse. Loneliness and depression are par for the course.

LIE #3: Suicide is caused by hate and intolerance
Virtually all responsible medical people and ex-gays themselves will tell you that when "gay" teens contemplate suicide, it's because they're horrified at the disgusting things they're doing to themselves (along with other dysfunction in their lives). But they find themselves addicted to it. And they think that there is no way to ever change. But when they are told they can heal from those behaviors they feel relieved. "Intolerance" has little if anything to do with it. The same suicide rates happen in places where homosexuality is completely tolerated. When you tell a child the truth -- that his homosexual tendencies are destructive -- but he can be healed and can change -- you are doing him a favor on many levels. Actually, this site purposefully exaggerates the suicide rate by "gay" teens. (Reliable statistics are difficult to find.)

Lie #4: Promoting homosexuality as being normal and natural is good for troubled kids
This is probably the biggest lie of all. Especially for vulnerable kids who may be going through some psychological trauma, or are just unsure of themselves, this is the worst possible thing you can do to them -- emotionally, psychologically, and certainly medically.

Dan Savage's anger and self-destruction permeates message to kids

It's ironic that someone so vicious should be leading a purported anti-bullying crusade. And one can see how much of Dan Savage's personal anger and self-destruction permeates the messages to kids.

Just as bullying and suicide imagery are used as a cover for deflecting criticism and intimidation, kids are encouraged to conjure up alleged bullying and suicide incidents and feelings of despair and post them as videos -- the more emotional, the better. In a way it's a magnet for teenage angst.

Even worse, it's all calculated to make confused kids feel attracted and attached to the homosexual movement and homosexual behavior as a refuge -- and to passionately hate anyone who disagrees with it.

The tragic victims here are the young people who often need real help, but instead are led into a terribly destructive and addictive behavior. And the disruption and grief brought to families whose children are being torn from them by these horrible activist groups is unmeasurable.
