Homophobia Is Just a Homosexual Propaganda Term// a term they made up

☆astac☆~PWCM 2012/09/03 18:49:39

As we have known all along, homophobia is just a propaganda term used by the homosexual activist community to harass those of use who value marriage and traditional family values, and as Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel describes:

is designed to label negatively anyone who holds traditional values about human sexuality and marriage. He believes parents should be in an uproar. ”We have here public education once again trying to co-opt the proper role of parents, trying to impose their ideology on children whether or not that happens to be the ideology that parents share,” he points out.

Sarah Arnold, a Wisconson public high school teacher is apparently so concerned with this made up term, that she created a program for her students entitled, “Exposing Hidden Homophobia. ” She heard an “anti-gay undertone” in her students conversations and took it upon herself to educate her English students on the issue. Arnold claims that although the student body is mostly white, there are “unacknowledged” demographics at her school. So she decided to address these hidden demographics, i.e. the GLBT students (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered) and pass it off as an English lesson.

The program Arnold developed included “in-depth exploration of depictions” of homosexuality in mass media; several homosexual-themed films, documentaries, books and novels; internet research on “the nature of homophobia”; and a “homophobia questionnaire” coupled with a “heterosexual questionnaire” designed to take questions “commonly asked of homosexuals and ask them of heterosexuals” – e.g., “When did you decide to become heterosexual?’”

Who asks a child that? And yes, for those of you who might not realize it, high school students are still children. The source material that this teacher has exposed these children to is and outrage. When students were reluctant and parents “balked,” (as well they should), especially Christian parents, Arnold defended her homophobia program by arguing,

that the project supported “higher-order thinking skills” because students were asked to perform such tasks as assembling and presenting portfolios of their research into homosexual culture and media.

I don’t know if this lady just got out of college or what, but I think that that her homosexual promo program is not the only way, or even an acceptable or necessary way, to teach “higher-order thinking skills” to students. Arnold has since attracted outside interest in her “homophobia” program, and she has thus made her resources and lesson plans available for other public school teachers to use so they can indoctrinate their own students with hyped homophobia propaganda. She also includes with her lesson plans, shortened versions of her “Hidden Homophobia Unit,” which you can read here.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute (IFI) said she was “speechless” when she learned of the curriculum.

Matt Barber says the program is really intended to indoctrinate children into thinking that homosexual behavior is okay. “The term ‘homophobia’ is a made-up term, made up by homosexual activists, that has no scientific value, no clinical value whatsoever,” he contends. “It’s merely a propaganda term.”

“Wisconsin public schools are permitting radical ideologues to use public money to promote their subversive, unproven moral conclusions and political goals about homosexuality,” said Higgins in an IFI article. “These propagandists, who should be teaching history or literature or writing, are instead pursuing their illegitimate goals of transforming the views of other people’s children on the contentious issue of homosexuality.”

“Arnold, like countless other English teachers, bases her text selections on whether the ideas conform to and advance her socio-political goals and her particular moral convictions,” said Higgins. “And she’s doing this with public money.”

Wow… with all of the recent financial shortages in public schools, I am quite sure that schools can find better and more productive ways to spend the little moeny they do have. Sarah Arnold likely isn’t the only public school teacher taking leeway with her lesson plans to indoctrinate your children with their personal ideologies. Have you discussed curriculum with your child’s teachers? Do you know what your children are reading, watching and being exposed to by these radical liberals?

    Homophobia isn't a term used to describe people who support marriage or traditional families. Most gay people actually support both marriage and traditional families.

    Personally, I love both. I came from a traditional family, so I think they're awesome.

    Homophobia is reserved for people who want to ensure that gay people can't create families of their own, based on love, respect and commitment.

    This is yet another attempt to desensitize the public, and brainwash the nation's youth, into the acceptance of aberrant behavior, what the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan aptly termed "defining deviancy down". I'm sure the folks at NAMBLA are drooling over the possibilities for future public acceptance of pederasty, as a logical extension of the "gay agenda".

    Too many people have been silenced by the strident homosexual fascists among us who indiscriminately hurl the word "homophobe" with the same gusto that liberals use the word "racist" to shut down opposition to their so-called "enlightened" policies.

    You have to wonder why Joe Paterno didn't fire Jerry Sandusky, Penn State's homosexual pedophile coach, years before the scandal became public knowledge. Indications are that Paterno, and many others at Penn State, knew about Sandusky's homosexual pederasty long before his arrest for child rape.

    The reason, I would submit, is that Paterno was simply following the PC dogma and did not wish to be labeled as being "homophobic". After all, Sandusky just did what LGBT media push: same sex sodomy.

    The fact that the homosexual Coach Sandusky was allowed to rape young boys for years and years is a statement about our society's refusal to face the facts about the "gay" agenda.

    Homophobia - A range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Definitions refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, irrational fear, and hatred.

    That took about 10 seconds to find!

    So what if it's made up, so is the bloody English language!

    Homophobia is a word to describe those who are intolerant/disgusted/scared of homosexuals or homosexuality.

    Phobia doesn't only mean fear in the conventional sense, fear has many aspects to it. If you monitor our brain waves, you'd notice that disgust/avoidance/awkwardness are all directly symptoms of fear, located in the same area of the brain which produces fear.

    That means, whenever you see something that even "grosses you out" you are experiencing a symptom of fear. Fear doesn't always mean racing heart beat, and running away screaming. That's just an extreme feeling of fear which is directly related to danger. But we can fear things which are not dangerous.

    And the word "Phobia" can also mean intolerance in the right context. Consider the medical term "Photophobia" which doesn't mean "Fear of light" but rather "Intolerance of light" so people with photophobia have a hard time looking at light or being near light because they are sensitive to it.

    Homophobia is a perfect term to describe someone who feels irrational discomfort/disgust/awkwardnes... around or towards homosexuals. It is not any more of a "made up word" than the word "Racist" is.

    The 'phobia' part isn't the best description, obviously. Most gay people I know agree on that.

    But we all know that the word isn't actually talking about a fear. And guess what? All words are made up! That's what words are. Made up noises that represent a certain meaning. Homophobia is the made up noise that means an aversion to or prejudice against homosexual people. And don't try to pretend that doesn't exist.

    Um, no. Homophobia is a real thing, people who are homophobic just want to make it seem like discrimination against gay people is totally fabricated.

    "Homophobia" is an accurate term used to describe people who think less of other people because of their sexual orientation, just like racist is a term used to describe people who think less of other people because of their race.

    "Phobia" means it is something you fear. I don't fear homosexuals, any more than I would fear someone with any other birth defect. They ask when I decided to be heterosexual? When I was 5 years old and saw the 5 year old neighbor girl nekkid and thought "That's for me!"

    If these so called high school "children", or whatever you call them, have the right to ask their peers when they chose to be gay, then I'm pretty sure the question can be posed right back at them.
    Myself and my fellow students had discussions on homosexuality since middle school.... 6th grade or so. We didn't need teachers to bring up the topic, but it's great that some do. How else will we stop hatred in this country? Their lame-a$$ parents sure aren't doing anything.

    for me homophobia means someone who dislikes gays. if the literal term means fear of gays or whatever then maybe we should change it. but for me if i say someone is homophobic or whatever im not saying they are scared of gays but that they dont like them.

    You need to let the publishers of dictionaries know this so they can delete the word. But then since the word includes an "OR", the irrational hatred of homosexuals, I think you'd have a difficult time convincing them that particular trait is nonexistent.

    ok again you got me lol, i meant there shouldnt be a rule. someday soon there wont be and gay marriage will be legal. what i meant though is where gay marriage is legal ok, they can call it marriage. they dont have to invent some new word just to make anti gay people happy.

    It's a term used for those who are intolerant of homosexuals. Yeah, everyone knows that. So?

    "Children" as in high school students are as innocent as you think, and I don't think that people should try and hide them from any controversial topic. But teaching personal ideologies is a no. Though I'd rather see a teacher trying to preach tolerance rather than intolerance.
