The LGBT fraud has been exposed, and they're definitely not happy about it

https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/deceit-and-lies-we-have-been-told-on-homosexuality
November 15, 2016 (REAL Women) -- Those who are setting our so-called "values", such as the small but powerful group of academics, mainstream
media, and homosexual activists, do so by attempting to impose strange myths and ideas that have no scientific basis.
These myths include the one that homosexuals are "born that way", can't change, and must be accepted for "who they are".
Further, those claiming they are a different gender than that with which they were born, i.e. the transgendered, who "feel" they
belong to other than their gender at birth, must be accepted as such.
The public is supposed to put aside its intelligence and common sense, and respectfully bow collectively in obeisance to these "expert" opinions.
These opinions, however, are complete and utter hogwash.
We know instinctively that they are not authentic, or worthy of our belief. However, the myth-makers attempt to force their nonsense on us by the
heavy hand of the law, claiming that it's "discrimination" to refuse to accept the myths as truth. Jurisdictions which don't obey their rulings
are economically punished, parents are forbidden to protect their children from the monstrous "bathroom" laws that permit males to use
girls' showers, lockers and change rooms. It's all a fraud based on propaganda with no scientific legitimacy.

Bombshells Explode the Myths

However, two bombshells have exploded that have shattered these myths, and the opinion-makers haven't yet controlled its fall-out.
The first bombshell was a landmark study published in The Journal, The New Atlantis, (August 23, 2016). The Journal is a well-known
journal of science, technology and ethics based in Washington D.C. This article analysed the scientific evidence of LGBT issues
published to date in scientific journals.
The report was authored by two eminent scholars. Dr. Lawrence Mayer, a professor of psychiatry and statistics and biostatistics at Arizona
State University, stated in the preface to the study that he has testified in dozens of federal and state legal proceedings strongly
supporting equality and opposing discrimination for the LGBT Community. However, Dr. Mayer stated he supports every sentence in this
report without reservation since it is about science and medicine. He also stated he was alarmed to learn during his review of over
500 scientific articles that the LGBT community bears a disproportionate rate of mental health problems compared to the population as a whole.
The other author is Dr. Paul McHugh, one of the leading psychiatrists in the world. He was psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital in
Baltimore from 1975 to 2001. These scientists reviewed hundreds of peer reviewed studies on sexual orientation and gender identity from the
biological, psychological and social sciences. Their conclusions were as follows:
The belief that sexual orientation is an innate, biologically fixed human property, that people are "born that way", is not
supported by scientific evidence.
The belief that gender identity is an innate, fixed human property independent of biological sex, so that a person might be a
'man trapped in a woman's body' or 'a woman trapped in a man's body', is not supported by scientific evidence.
Only a minority of children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behaviour will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood.
There is no evidence that all such children should be encouraged to become transgender, much less subjected to hormone treatments or surgery.
Non-heterosexual and transgender people have higher rates of mental health problems (anxiety, depression, suicide), as well as behavioral and
social problems (substance abuse, intimate partner violence), than the general population. Discrimination alone does not account for the entire disparity.

The second bombshell was exploded by a top researcher for the American Psychological Association (APA), lesbian activist, Dr. Lisa
Diamond, co-author-in-chief of 'the APA Handbook' of sexuality and psychology and one of the APA's most respected members. She admitted
that sexual orientation was "fluid" and not unchangeable.
By doing so, Dr. Diamond confirmed that the myth that "homosexuals can't change" is now a dead-end theory.
She summarized the relevant findings in a lecture at Cornell University stating that abundant research has now established that
sexual orientation, including attraction, behaviour and self-identity, is fluid for both adolescents and adults for both genders.
Her announcement flies in the face of legislation in several U.S. states and Ontario, Canada, which ban "reparative therapy", which
seeks to help patients experiencing same-sex attraction.
It also destroys the argument by homosexual activists that sexual orientation is the "civil rights movement of our times".
This is poppycock.
Sexual desire is based on something other than genetics, including primarily, a person's relationships, culture and other
experiences, not genetics or prenatal hormones.
The only thing that science actually tells us is that we are born either male or female.
Errant, harmful ideologies and lies, especially those which diminish and endanger the lives of children, should be condemned without delay.
Clearly, the laws on sexual orientation and the transgendered must be reassessed in light of the truth now being exposed.
We can waste no more time on such inanities.

Reaction of Homosexual Activists and the Media

The mainstream media ignored these bombshells.
The homosexual Human Rights Campaign (HRC), however, was not about to allow them to affect its continued existence, and the estimated
nearly $49 million it hauls in annually from contributions, which maintain its luxurious headquarters in Washington D.C.
More importantly, it was not about to relinquish the tremendous power and influence it holds over society, especially the
law makers and the media.
The HRC reacted as it usually does when its power base is threatened. It is to attack, attack, and attack. On this occasion, it went
for the jugular of the New Atlantis Journal, which had defied it by exposing the true facts about homosexuality. The HRC published a
criticism of the Journal's research review, characterizing Drs. Mayer and McHugh as "Anti-Trans All-Stars", and "anti-LGBTQ" promoters seeking to
"marginalize" and mock people.
They accused the authors of intentional "misleading statements" and "biased interpretations."
The editors of the New Atlantis Journal, however, were not about to put up with HRC's nonsense.
The latter was only lies and distortions.
In a special publication entitled "Lies and Bullying from the Human Rights Campaign" it delineated how HRC had distorted the journal's recent
publication on homosexuality stating in the introduction, "Most of the HRC document is an exercise in distortion". It then tackled
in detail these distortions.
We can also be assured that HRC is scrambling behind the scenes to find suitable ideologically correct researchers to commence a
study, funded either by the HRC directly, or, more probably, by one of the corporate mad dogs held in its kennel, to
dispute the study in the New Atlantis Journal and APA.
When this new study is released, probably within a year, it will be with great fanfare and extensive coverage in the media.
It will be presented as "The Truth".
It will, however, be a fraud and deceit based on flawed methodology.
How can it be otherwise, when its findings are pre-determined?
The purpose of the study will be for propaganda only and it will be merely a feeble house of cards.
It should be disregarded by those with any intelligence and common sense with the knowledge that such a study is only an
attempt by well-funded homosexual activists to continue their control over society.

Radical Taxpayer-funded Program Promoting Homosexuality and Gender Confusion to Children as Young as 11.

As reported in Coober Pedy News Special Edition no. 166, February 2016

There have been media reports last week about the controversial Safe Schools Coalition
Australia (SSCA) program.
It claims to be an "anti-bullying" program, but it is far from safe for all students.


Disturbingly, SSCA material (promoted in nearly 500 schools across Australia) teaches children:
      to imagine (at age 11) that they are 16 and going out with a person of
the same sex that they are "really into";
      to use toilets and change rooms based on the gender kids "feel" they are, regardless of their
actual biology;
      that asking whether a newborn baby is a boy or a girl reinforces a "heteronormative worldview";
      chest binding for girls who feel they are boys (despite potential injury);
      penis tucking for boys who feel they are girls (despite potential injury);
      to advocate for "same-sex marriage" (resulting in bullying of kids who support natural marriage).
It also provides misleading statistics, including the debunked claim that 10% of people
are same-sex attracted.
Our schools are meant to be places of safety and learning, not to promote dangerous, divisive and
age-inappropriate sexual content.
This program should be de-funded immediately.
In recent weeks, Jerome Appleby from the National Office of FamilyVoice Australia,
a Christian voice for family, faith and freedom, was able to present open letters against
the program, signed by more than 14,000 Australians, to then Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss.
FamilyVoice Australia wants to ensure the removal of this dangerous program from all state and
territory education systems.
You can help stop the Safe Schools program by contacting your local
state or territory MPs, via this website:
http://fava.org.au/safeschools
whereby you can send your message to all of them.

Don't Be Fooled: this is what the SAFE SCHOOLS program is REALLY about








Wrong even if it were made Law
