Madison Hinton calls out "activists"

I have to say, this is very vulgar -- beware -- but I love it!

Says a lot of the things I feel about the way "helicopter gays" landed in the queer community and took over after a lot of us had already gone through the worst of it and won serious battles.

This is the YouTube video that almost got a Huffington Post Gay editor fired

There was some controversy and backlash against RuPaul by transgender activists, notably RuPaul's humorous references to "She-Mail." This YouTube video was made in good spirit by people involved in the LGBT community to laugh about how overly seriously we take everything. But apparently it upset the people who should have been laughing at it -- HuffPo took the video down.


Prayer Alert to all Believers -- Please Pray for this Beautiful Baby about to Be Raised by Three Lesbians

This came from the Daily Mail:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2611020/Meet-worlds-married-lesbian-threesome-baby-make-four-July.html

Three lesbians married each other in an officialized three-way. As I have long maintained, I don't care so much about the marriage issue. I grieve for the child who is being carried by one of these women. To be raised with three moms and no dad is NOT funny or cute.

But it isn't the child's fault and we need to pray for him, hoping he comes out okay and finds a happy way in the world.

This part of the piece was particularly disturbing to me:

The plan at the moment is that Kitten will bear all the children - possibly using her wives' eggs and donated sperm - but they are open to other options, such as adoption.Brynn, 34, says: 'The hope is to have three kids altogether. We always joke that the children should never outnumber the parents.'

See, it's all about them wanting kids. Because the world revolves around them!

The Atlantic says we have a right to be wrong on gay marriage

Well, it's a nice gesture:

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/04/mozillas-gay-marriage-litmus-test-violates-liberal-values/360156/

I don't like being told I have the right to be wrong, but I'll take that over being fired and persecuted for protecting children's rights to a mom and dad.

The Snarky Gay Lobby Conspiracy Theorists and Their Atrocious Lack of Geography Skills

I received a call from a reporter at a national newspaper, which will remain nameless until I see if she actually uses anything from the interview with me, and if she quotes me honestly. This was a newspaper to which I've sent a few editorials and letters to the editor, which never saw the light of day. I have a file of 50 different such submissions to American newspapers, none of which ever got acknowledged or published.

It was quite stunning to hear the reporter say that she wanted to interview me about my involvement with antigay hatred in Uganda and Russia. After taking a few deep breaths and holding back from saying, "WTF?!?!?!", I asked her why she would be interviewing me about two countries that I've never been to, have said almost nothing about, don't have any contact with, don't work with, and can't communicate with since they aren't countries that speak the eight languages I've studied -- Greek, Latin, English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese [NB: Uganda's official languages are Swahili and English, so I am not sure how to count that, on second thought]. Maybe I could understand if she wanted to interview me about Latin America, which I visited on business long before I was active in any social justice movements. It would be a stretch, but plausible.

But Uganda? Russia?

After all the work I've done on children's rights in the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Italy, to protect a child's right to -- 1) be born free, not bought or sold; (2) have a mom and a dad; (3) connect with their origins -- why on Earth would I be asked to comment on laws about propagandizing to minors in Russia and threatening severe penalties to homosexuals in Uganda? I've referred obliquely to those places in here and there, in a half-dozen out of the 1,200 columns I've written on children's rights. But it honestly makes no sense. I told her, "I shouldn't even be included in this interview. I am not involved in Russia or Uganda."

She explained to me, "well, I'm sure you've seen this around, but gay groups have named you as one of the 'rising stars' of the antigay movement, and they say you are fomenting antigay hatred with your trips overseas. So I wanted to ask you about what the role is of Americans who speak out against gays overseas."

I realized, at this point, that Jeremy Hooper, Scott Rose, Straight Grandmother, and the rest of these ridiculous trolls in the gay blogosphere aren't merely incredibly dangerous because they use desperate tactics to distract people from real, serious issues and impose their totalitarian agenda on others through character assassinations and psychological operations. They are also incredibly stupid!

I am not saying the reporter is stupid -- after all, she did take the time to call me for a quote, which is better than many other journalists. But let's take a step back and see what we can learn about the "gay rights groups" -- which I refuse to call gay rights groups, since they are really anti-children's rights groups -- from this bizarre encounter.


1. They have zero sense of geography. Below is a map of Europe which I have downloaded from the Internet.

It is not an onerous favor to ask, that people look at a map before they name an individual as "involved" in places. As you will see in the map on the left, France, Belgium, Italy, and the United Kingdom are nowhere near Russia. Uganda is also not in Europe.

I have never set foot in any part of Europe east of Venice. The only countries I have visited in Europe are the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, and Italy. I never even made it to Holland. And when I went to Venice in 2005, nobody knew who I was and I was there to look at great Titian exhibits and such.

In my travels to Europe since 2013, to "speak out" for children's rights, I have visited the following cities:

Paris, Brussels, London, Strasbourg, and Milan.

Clorinda Chronicles -- Jumbo Edition: Sperm Banking and Surrogacy are both Human Trafficking; and Belgium's Tainted Sperm Scandal is Huge

This is a jumbo edition because Clorinda, my correspondent in the donor-conceived community, has sent me so much material to work with!

Below is a digest of recent stories on sperm banking disasters, controversy, surrogacy, and bioethics. Thanks, Clorinda!
********
Belgian Donor-Conceived Groups Exposes Massive Tainted Sperm Scandal

A new submission to Anonymous Us by a  'donor' conceived person from Belgium:

"Regarding Cryo donor 7042 aka
Hey there,
My name is Stephanie, I am 35 years old and a Belgium donor conceived child. I am a part of a triplet.
I also represent an organization of DC offspring in Belgium. (Donorkinderen Belgi� which translate in donor children of Belgium)
In my country donor children are being conceived for over already 60 years. There is an estimate of 60 000 donor conceived children, but no one know for sure because there is no mean of registration. We also lack a central register. 50% of used sperm comes from the Nordic Cryo bank.
Our law does not grant ye the children conceived information about the sperm or egg donor (medical and a bit personal information) and considers the right of having a child, and the anonymity of the donor above the European recognized right of knowing your biological roots.
Because my sister and I were able to go public with our story, it was the first time possible for Belgian DC offspring to contact each other.

Gattoparda forwarded me this epic takedown of sperm donor conception

Awesome! Awesome! This blogger is so awesome I have no words to say it all! It appeared, apparently, on AnonymousUs.org.


I'm sure your intentions were good. I'm sure you really do want a child as much as you say. I'm sure the friends you consulted who were donor recipients really are "SOOOOO IN LOVE WITH THEIR CHILDREN". But frankly, and I speak for a whole generation of children who are seriously trying to cope with not having a normal family dynamic, you could really use a dose of pluralism.

To your credit, you are at least attempting to consider what sperm donation is like from the other end of the spectrum, but from what I can tell you are not actually realizing that not every donor child possesses the "rantings of teenage early adult angst". If you are not the child of a sperm or egg donor, which apparently you aren't, you are in no position to tell me or anyone else how to feel. Despite your being an "educated financially secure adult", you do not know what being a donor child feels like. Some of us are perfectly happy never knowing our biological parents, and some of us are devastated by it; this does not mean that the happy children are more valid than the children who sit in Chemistry Lab and wonder if maybe their brother is the boy in the second row.

Here's what I have to say to gay parenting advocates



Manuel Half, son a gay father in Europe, put it perfectly, in response to all the BS gay parenting advocates who say they love their kids:

"This isn't love."

Taking away a child's mom or dad because you want to have a life you feel is owed to you because of all you suffered is screwed up, selfish, and nothing to be glossed over. Screw the platitudes. Screw people who justify child abuse.

"This isn't love."

The two gay men in Texas who tried to defraud a woman and steal her baby have been overruled by a judge!

I have to read this more in depth but on a quick read, it seems like sweet victory of a sort.

La Joie de Vivre 3:1 -- Voices of the children of same-sex couples, a roll call

The following list is a partial bibliography of both adults and children who were raised by gay and lesbian parents and offer counternarratives to the consensus on same-sex parenting in theory or practice. This list has been compiled by several volunteers who wish not to be named, out of fear of retaliation by gay organizations. The list was designed to be posted without commentary so the children of same-sex couples can speak in their own voices. [--ROL]

More additions to this roll call are forthcoming, as we are able to finalize more testimonials currently in process. 

ADULTS

*1) Jean-Dominique Bunel (raised by lesbians): “It was not the taboo of homosexuality that made me suffer, but same-sex parenting. Homosexuals should naturally be greeted with brotherhood. they enrich humanity and if necessary, of course, give them as much as possible the same rights as heterosexuals but this equality obviously can not apply to a “right to the child “which exists nowhere and is not found in any text. ‘ This is indeed what cannot be: gay parenting.

Racketeering, Influence and Corrupt Organizations -- In other words, the gay lobby

There have been so many stories of businesses, academics, and commentators being commercially destroyed and threatened -- even subjected to hostile gunfire -- as a result of the gay lobby's provocations and conspiracies, that I wonder why people have not taken seriously RICO, or the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

I'm not a lawyer. But that's a plus these days. Lately lawyers have proved the least trustworthy arbiters of what's right and wrong -- look at how they have conveniently forgotten about the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Still, I have enough training to peruse 18 U.S. Code § 1961. Here is a link to Cornell's explanations of the law:

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1961

On October 15, 1970, the US Congress issued the following statement to explain the passage of RICO, with the parts in bold relevant to the conduct of major gay advocacy organizations that have crossed the line into racketeering:

The Bryan Singer Pederasty Story is an Elephant in the Room

Here's the Daily Mail's latest post on the ongoing story of Bryan Singer's alleged molestation of teenage boys in the late 1990s, and the resulting lawsuits:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2607166/Bryan-Singers-wild-pool-parties-met-sex-assault-accuser-home-Hollywood-power-player-jailed-sex-minors.html

[*This article provides useful hyperlinks to independent peer-reviewed studies: http://www.virtueonline.org/portal/modules/news/article.php?storyid=18076#.U1HyB8fR07C]

I have received a number of emails from people asking me to weigh in on the story, because I have written commentary on the gay community's pederasty problem in the past.

Because these are still allegations at this point and nothing is proved, I would like respectfully to refrain from saying much about it. If Bryan Singer is actually innocent, I would not want to be remembered as someone who condemned a guiltless man.

Having said that, the charges made by Singer's accuser sound much like scenes to which I was exposed as a late teen and early twentysomething as well. I have made it clear, even in the face of tremendous backlash, that the gay male community has a real problem with predators and a dangerous erotic fascination with boys who are teenagers and look like teenagers. One part of this problem that bothers me is the fetishizing of unequal power relations; part of the allure of young-looking males is the turn-on for many older gay men to exploit their typical awkwardness, need for approval, restlessness, and vulnerability.

Pamela Geller is latest to call out the spineless Right

Wow, on American Thinker there have been multiple articles this week taking names and calling out the lame-o rightists who keep unloading "toxic" people like myself in favor of milquetoast cloying brown-nosers who will compromise everything with the left so long as they get their little regular appearances on TV and radio. The latest comes from Pamela Geller, who says NRO is the epitome of the "spineless" Right. Wow.

Harsh, harsh, but so delicious to read.

Disgusted over divorce, high judge in the UK resigns as protest

One of my goals moving forward with English Manif is to tackle divorce. I am partly inspired by the work of the Ruth Institute, including my heroic colleagues Jennifer Roback Morse and Jennifer Thieme.

While the same-sex parenting movement poses the most urgent juridical threat to children's rights, this is because said movement wants to enshrine the de jure principle that children do not have a right to mother and father. The same-sex parenting movement is pushing for sweeping legal changes that would shatter a child's self-evident right to his own identity and heritage, and this points toward an ugly future of eugenics, cultural genocide, slavery, and general human misery.

BUT -- and this is a big "but" -- in the de facto realm, the most prevalent assault on children's rights comes in the form of divorce. It is through divorce proceedings that children are often batted back and forth between their parents, treated like spoils to be divided, and subjugated to the selfish whims of adults.

Sex trafficking in Nigeria doesn't worry the US State Department -- as long as John Kerry can push homosexuality on poor countries

Wendy Wright makes a fantastic point in this piece for Turtle Bay:

http://www.turtlebayandbeyond.org/2014/homosexuality/this-is-not-equality/

She points out that the US State Department, and increasingly other international bodies like the UN, remain utterly obsessed with promoting gayness while not caring about the explosion in human trafficking and massacres of religious minorities.

I'll take a step further, just looking at the case of Nigeria -- I think the US State Department is actually okay with some of these trafficking networks because they will ensure a supply chain of surrogates for the growing baby farming market. And which demographic has a lot of money and an insatiable need for baby farming? Just saying.

For what it's worth, the paper on queer theory I was supposed to present in Lille, France on March 21, 2013


While I'm nothing close to a public figure, there might be a few readers who know me, primarily, as the American guy who talked about being raised by lesbians in France. Yes, it's true, that is one of the hats I wear. Here's a funny piece of trivia, though, for the five people out there who might find it interesting. The whole reason that I was in France on March 24, 2013, to deliver that speech in front of 1.4 million people, had to do with my work in queer theory. So before I was the dude who got tear-gassed just below the Arc de Triomphe, I was the American queer theorist coming to Europe to present a research paper on homoerotic relationships during wartime.

Yes, you read right. I am a queer theorist and my work in queer theory was what caused me to be in France that day. You see, in October 2011, I had gotten accepted a paper on the discourse surrounding war and love between men, to be presented in Lille, France, on March 21, 2013, for a queer studies conference called "Writing and Dramatising the body : Violence, Discordance and Reconfiguration." [I enclose the full paper here!]

In October 2011 I had no idea that there was ever going to be a Manif pour Tous, or that the bizarre fact that I spoke French and was raised by lesbians would ever be known except to about eight people in my immediate family. To be precise in October 2011, The Colorful Conservative: American Conversations with the Ancients from Wheatley to Whitman had just been published, a literary critical work based on the theories of none other than ... Michel Foucault. At that point I was still in the Army Reserves but Don't Ask Don't Tell had just been repealed, freeing me to speak openly about my work in queer theory, as an out bisexual. At that time, which seems like an eternity ago, I was mostly excited to wave the rainbow flag and be able to talk about queerness without fearing that I would be brought up on charges.

Well, my period of being an out and proud military queer didn't last very long, because I soon found myself on the queer activist community's enemy list. It just so happens that a year after the paper was accepted, some drastic things had happened. I had gotten honorably discharged from the military because of my brain injury (July 2012), which freed me up, like never before, to engage in the debate on homosexual parenting, an issue where I'd always wanted to challenge the gay elite consensus. And in France, the Manif pour Tous had formed to resist President François Hollande's push to legalize homosexual adoption.

Because I knew that I was going to be in France on March 21, 2013, I recorded a YouTube video challenging France's minister of women's rights, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, to a debate on same-sex parenting. Unsurprisingly, she ignored this challenge outright, but somehow the video got noticed by Eric Martin at Nouvelles de France. Martin posted the video and it suddenly got over 50,000 hits, prompting the leaders of the Manif pour Tous to invite me to speak at a rally they were planning on March 24. Nobody had any clue that the march was going to end up being so enormous and making international headlines due to the tear-gassing and riot police.


The ultimate irony, however, was that the queer studies work that had been the original reason for my trip to France never got presented. Two days before I was supposed to present in Lille, I was caught on camera beside Frigide Barjot, being attacked by a group of Belgian LGBT activists. Suddenly I was a controversial figure, and administrators at Lille, fearing violence on their campus, blocked me from going to the conference or presenting my paper.

So the forgotten queer studies paper lives on only below....

The Gay War as Epic Absence


More pro-gay fascism, this time from a straight guy married to a bisexual woman

Pathetic:

http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/gay-activists-aim-to-shut-down-oregon-health-food-store-over-owners-support

Read this article to see a chronicle of the fascist ideology infesting the gay movement. In this case, a boycotted store owner made the fatal error of apologizing and donating money to a local gay charity. Of course, that just makes you look weak in the eyes of the fascists, and then they go in for the kill.

The statements from the bisexual woman whose husband spearheaded this boycott are truly chilling. She says that her husband was standing up for her and her community -- by putting someone out of business for something posted on Facebook.

We have to stand up to this crap.

The Voice of the Grieving Adoptee

This piece "Dear Phantom Birthmother" illustrates why it's never a small detail to transfer a child to the care of people who aren't its biological parents. Of course it's necessary in some instances, but it is never something that should be done for reasons less than extraordinary:

http://poundpuplegacy.org/node/70031

The author of this piece speaks to the "phantom" mother who gave a child up for adoption. I defy people to read the letter and then say that it's perfectly fine to engage in adoption transfers merely to satisfy adult desires for kids.

Jennifer Lahl asks -- why bother with pregnancy nowadays?

Let's take a break from criticizing the gay parenting community for a sec, and ask:

What the heck is going on with straight women? WTF? You hire a surrogate mother because you don't want to gain weight and can't take time off from work?

http://www.cbc-network.org/2014/04/pregnancy-why-bother/

With straight people this crazy and entitled, this frivolous and spoiled, how can we honestly look the gay lobby in the eyes and tell them they're wrong to commodify children? They're just following in the footsteps of a hetero world that's gone off the rails.

Re: Tag Romney, I won't hide my feelings -- I am glad that he is not the son of a US President. Imagine how much harder it would be to fight for children's rights if we had a POTUS whose beloved son went out and bought three kids by surrogates, just 'cuz.

"Social surrogacy"? A new crop of women turn to surrogate carriers, just cuz they don't have time to get pregnant

This is truly chilling:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2606101/The-rise-social-surrogacy-The-women-choosing-not-carry-babies-fear-hurting-careers-ruining-bodies.html

Next, of course, we will hear that women in LA don't want to get fat or stretch marks, so they'll hire Guatemalan maids to gestate babies for them in between doing the dishes and hanging the laundry out to dry.

An epic review of the gay lobby's imperialist and global fascist aims

It's very good and deserves a thorough read.

I was on the air with one of Rachel Maddow's bogeymen today

Bryan Fischer has been cast as an incorrigible monster, but I found him a pretty nice guy to be interviewed by. My part starts at 28:00 --

http://mediaserver3.afa.net/archives/FocalPoint/fcl_041614a.mp3

Finland has now enshrined the term "homo-fascism" .... as a good thing?

This really took me by surprise in Breitbart:

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/04/15/Finland-Launches-Erotic-Gay-Stamp

For those of you who didn't do gay male subculture in the 1980s, Tom of Finland was a pencil artist who made lots of money by engraving images of hypermasculine, Aryan men engaging in various forms of dominance and submission. Inspired in part by his nation's violent subjugation by Soviet totalitarians, and awed by the beauty of Nazi men, Tom of Finland embraced the brutal hierarchies and rough trade of gay subculture at the time.

Awesome takedown of gay adoption by Daphne Caruana Galizia

I love it! I love it!

Whoever this writer is, I want to buy her a cocktail!

Hanne Anderson's wonderful piece on surrogacy

Please read this:

https://www.facebook.com/notes/hanne-andersen/choice-or-enslavement-psychological-damage-in-surrogacy/10152155606151847

Hanne Anderson lays out clearly the heinous nature of surrogacy. We must not let this filthy business continue.

An excerpt:

The only conclusion that one can draw is that surrogates will suffer psychological damage, regardless of the fact that they are receiving payment for renting out their wombs. We also know through the studies and the oral history of adopted children and sperm donors, that they too have suffered from psychological damage. Disorders in these children such as Reactive Attachment Disorder and Identity Disorders and Anxiety Disorders are prevalent. Have these women considered this? Are they being made aware of these issues that could affect themselves and the baby they are bringing into the world for the rest of their lives? Have they considered how this may effect the children they are currently raising? Will the children internalize the detachment from the surrogate baby and think that she might get rid of them too? Many are not provided independent legal advice and made aware of their human and legal rights. Many are illiterate and do not understand the documents they are signing and many have never experienced pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood. Are they even being made aware that in many cases the baby they produce may be stateless?

Just a reminder when gay parenting advocates throw out the adoption card -- Adoption activists oppose the idea of a "right to adopt" for gays OR ANYONE

Adoption can be good and necessary -- when it is done to find a home for a child who doesn't have a home.

Remember that foster care and adoption differ in their end goals. Both foster and adoptive parents can build lifelong bonds to the children they care for, but foster parents do not replace and essentially erase the child's ties to their birth kin network. Adoptions legally sever, permanently, the child's links to their birth kin network. In a foster care situation the ultimate goal is to return the child to the original kin network.

Let's clarify that adoption has to be based on the child's right to a mother and father. Any discussion of adult "rights to adopt" is an egregious perversion of adoption and leading the way to human trafficking or at worst, cultural genocide and slavery. This link from Americans for Open Records, an adoption activist groups, clarifies this very nicely:

http://www.amfor.net/gay.html

Pope Francis affirms children's rights to a mother and father -- rejects outright social experimentation with children as fascist

Remember that in the Pope's native Argentina, forced adoptions were part of fascist eugenics and political persecution:

http://www.ionainstitute.ie/index.php?id=3530#.U05qkYnYAkE.facebook

This writeup from the Iona Institute gives the essence of what Pope Francis said in Italian.

Notice how the Western press has failed to notice this at all. In Italy, the Huffington Post ran a smug mockery of the Pope's statements, including more citations by gay lobbyists of the bogus social-science consensus.

It's time to fight! Fight for kids' rights! And I am so glad the Pope didn't hold back from connecting the dots between "alternative" parenting schemes and 20th-century dictatorships.
