“Adults Must Protect Our Country’s Children”
by Donna Garner
The future of our country lies in our children. If they are riddled with sexually transmitted diseases and all sorts of emotional and psychological scars, how can they live happy and wholesome lives? We as adults must try to protect them by “doing our homework” instead of listening to the loud voices that are spewing misinformation and medically inaccurate dogma.
First, we need to listen to experts such as Robert Rector, who is respected by legislators on both sides of the aisle because of his excellent research. On September 12, 2012, Rector presented his latest findings:
Being married has roughly the same effect in reducing poverty that adding five to six years to a parent’s education has.
Legislators in the U.S., however, appear more intent on promoting gay marriage instead of shoring up traditional heterosexual marriage for the benefit of children.
Marriage is highly beneficial to children, adults, and society; it needs to be encouraged and strengthened.
Just as government discourages youth from dropping out of school, it should clearly and forcefully articulate the value of marriage.
In opposition to sound science, the Obama administration working with such long-time liberals as Congressman Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) have been busily pushing contraceptive/condom sex education in our nation's schools. Important federal funding for abstinence-only sex education programs has been stripped away.
Meanwhile, $75 Million a year for five years is being sent under ObamaCare (Section 2953, Title II, Subtitle L: "Personal responsibility education") to public schools around the country under the name of PREP (Personal Responsibility and Education Programs).
PREP is the new name for contraceptive/condom sex education, and Planned Parenthood will be one of the biggest recipients of PREP funds. ( 9.15.12 -- http://www.onenewsnow.com/perspectives/miscellaneous/a-government-f... )
When a teacher in the Portland Public Schools in Portland, Oregon, refused to let Planned Parenthood talk to his students without the proper authorization, Planned Parenthood filed a complaint against the teacher. "PP did get to talk to the students and used aggressive tactics to obtain the children’s signatures for Teen Outreach Program and Community Voice Program participation (promising gifts and cash)." (9.24.12 -- LifeNews.com -- http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/24/teacher-denies-obamacare-funded-... )
New York City schools have supplied free condoms to sexually active teens for many years, but school nurses have recently gone even further and have begun to dispense Plan B emergency contraception, and oral or injectable birth control pills (9.24.12 -- New York Post -- http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/city_schools_plan_UoW7ke5l2KRwg43nHzt97H )
New York City has the highest abortion rate in the country (41%). Plan B has been linked to an increase in pregnancies and also an increase in sexually transmitted diseases...13 high schools will participate in CATCH (Connecting Adolescents to Comprehensive Healthcare) in which students can get regular birth control injections, the morning-after pill, and condoms without ever calling home. "The same nurse's office that demands a parents' note for aspirin will be in the position to administer high (and potentially dangerous) doses of hormones to children as young as 14 without so much as a permission slip." (Family Research Council, 9.25.12 -- http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WU12I09 )
Public schools all around the country have instituted contraceptive/condom sex education programs that are now tied to new bullying programs. (9.16.12 -- Texas Tribune -- http://www.texastribune.org/texas-education/public-education/condom... )
Instead of emphasizing how destructive bullying is for all children, these new programs attempt to elevate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) lifestyle to the position of normalcy and acceptance.
The bullying agenda was promoted by Obama and the U. S. Dept. of Education in October 26, 2010 when they sent out a 10-page "Dear Colleague" directive to all public and private schools, colleges, and universities, including the country’s 15,000 school superintendents. ( http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/letters/colleague-201010.pdf )
The Obama administration took it upon themselves to include "sexual orientation (e.g., gender identity) under the word "sex" (supposed to mean male or female) in the Title IX federal law and then proceeded to threaten schools with loss of federal funds and/or litigation if they do not create new bullying programs that promote the LGBT lifestyle as normal.
Certainly all students should be taught to treat others with dignity; and bullying is a terrible problem. But forcing students to accept a perverse lifestyle that leads students into sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) and early death is not something that schools should be advocating.
ONE STATE'S ANTI-BULLYING POLICY - A GOOD MODEL TO FOLLOW
Here is a model anti-bullying statement that one state put forth as a common-sense approach to take: "Each district's antibullying policy shall be founded on the assumption that all students need a safe learning environment. Policies shall treat students equally and shall not contain specific lists of protected classes of students who are to receive special treatment. Policies may include age-appropriate differences for schools based on the grade levels at the school. Each such policy shall contain a statement of the consequences of bullying [including] cyberbullying, e-mails as acts of bullying, intimidation and harassment.”
THE MEDICAL FACTS
The Centers for Disease Control (2005-2008) reports that the percentage of diagnosed HIV infections attributed to male-to-male sexual contact was 85% among males aged 13 to 24. That figure is just for HIV and does not include all of the other STD's that are being spread among the LGBT communty because of anal, oral, and vaginal sexual activities.
Contraceptive/condom sex education and the pro-LGBT bullying programs work in tandem to gag students, educators, and parents who know what the medical, emotional, and psychological consequences of teenage sexual activities (anal, oral, and vaginal) are.
Those people and their organizations that are pushing condoms and contraceptives act as if they have "re-invented the wheel" when in actuality, their contraceptive/condom agenda has been in place for a long time. Back in the 90's, most sex education programs across the nation had a teaching unit in which students practiced putting cucumbers on a condom. Some students even practiced making dental dams out of condoms to use for oral sex. Have these contraceptive/condom strategies lowered the sexually transmitted disease epidemic in the United States? They most certainly have not.
Even when President George W. Bush was in office and his administration began to promote abstinence-only programs, the amount of money spent by the federal government on contraceptive/condom sex education programs was still $12 for every $1 spent on abstinence-only programs.
Planned Parenthood is the biggest "pusher" of contraceptives/condoms in the entire United States. In Obama's 2011 budget, he allocated more than $460 million federal dollars for Planned Parenthood which also gets money by charging clients for abortions and contraceptives.
Some people may remember the incident from July 21, 2009, in which the Planned Parenthood staffer in Montgomery, Alabama, was captured on tape telling teen girls that the aborted baby “is merely oozey goozey – like a small lump of slaw.”
But what about the subject of sexually transmitted diseases? Obama, Waxman, other members of Congress, Planned Parenthood, SEICUS, and the liberal press never seem to want to talk about the uncomfortable subject of STD’s. They only want to talk about pregnancy rates. Why? If the subject of STD’s is brought up, contraceptive/condom advocates have nothing to offer except misinformation.
For instance, just where in the Planned Parenthood and contraceptive/condom sex education programs are teens told that birth control pills, birth control injections (DMPA), and intrauterine devices (IUD’s) offer no protection at all from STD’s?
Where are teens told that the male condom does not eliminate the risk of pregnancy and that STD's can be transmitted outside of the condom-covered area?
Where in contraceptive/condom sex education programs are teens instructed on the very real dangers of trichomoniasis, syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), genital herpes, genital human papillomavirus, HIV/AIDS, and sexually acquired hepatitis?
Contraceptive/condom sex education programs fail to teach teens that:
(Sources: Scott & White Worth the Wait®, U. S. Centers for Disease Control)
All parents who really care about their teens should want them to be taught about STD’s. Contraceptive/condom sex education programs deliberately deceive teens, giving them the idea that they can have sex anytime, anyplace so long as they take precautions against pregnancy; but the really important part that is left out is that these same teens can easily contract STD’s from which they (and their babies) will suffer the rest of their lives, even increasing their chances of early death.
THE FIRST BOGUS "STUDY" IN 2004
How did our country become so deceived? The following bogus statement has continued to pop up frequently in the liberal media:
Multiple studies of abstinence-only programs have shown they do not keep teens from having sex at greater rates than comprehensive sex education programs, and in fact, may be even less effective at getting them to save sex for marriage.
These “studies” to which this statement refers are based upon two bogus documents, one from 2004 and one from 2007. Congressman Henry Waxman's own staff wrote the 2004 "study," and these writers had no medical or scientific background. The "study" was not even peer reviewed nor was it validated by Congressional hearings.
Waxman’s staff chose to ignore the fact that in 2004, there were 10 peer-reviewed evaluations in credible journals that reported abstinence-only sex education programs reduced teenage sexual activity.
Waxman’s staff also deliberately ignored an April 2003 study published in a leading medical journal that reported:
Increased abstinence was the major cause of declining birth and pregnancy rates among teen girls…increased abstinence accounted for 67 percent of the decline in pregnancy rate for teen girls ages 15 to 19…51% of the drop in the birth rate for single teen girls was attributed to abstinence.
OB/gyn specialist Dr. Joe McIlhaney of the Medical Institute for Sexual Health countered Waxman’s bogus report by saying, “Not a single school-based ‘comprehensive sex-ed’ program has been shown to lower STD, HIV, or non-marital pregnancy rates.”
THE SECOND BOGUS "STUDY" – 2007
Because of Congressman Waxman’s steady drum beat for contraceptive/condom sex education, he was able to pressure the release of a second bogus report -- from Mathematica Policy Institute (MPI).
The MPI research team deliberately chose four little-known abstinence programs that had poor-if-any research evidence. Abstinence-only programs with credible, peer-reviewed research proving their effectiveness were not included in the “study.”
Waxman and his crowd so twisted this 2007 report that the liberal media gleefully reported abstinence-only programs were actually dangerous even though the evidence from credible abstinence-only programs indicated just the opposite.
Then in February 2009, the contraceptive pushers focused their sights on Texas when the Texas Freedom Network announced their "study" that faulted Texas public schools for teaching abstinence-only.
Texas Freedom Network has been in close association for many years with Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Campaign (largest homosexual organization in the country). TFN, PP, and HRC are like a "sisterhood" and work in conjunction with one another to destroy any vestiges of traditional marriage and traditional values that are left in our country.
The Sisterhood is “joined at the hip” by ex-TFN presidents, Cecile Richards and Samantha Smoot, who work closely with TFN's present leader, Kathy Miller.
When reading any "studies" that come from these groups, we must remember who profits: Planned Parenthood makes money both ways -- either on abortions and/or on contraceptives. HRC perpetuates its organization with an increase in homosexual activity. TFN keeps its board members happy so long as it grabs the media spotlight with its outrageous allegations against conservative State Board of Education members.
TEXAS FREEDOM NETWORK, DAVID C. WILEY – A BOGUS STUDY IN TEXAS
The Texas Freedom Network (TFN) study in February 2009 was led by David Wiley. He stated, "Our classrooms are perpetuating a conspiracy of silence that robs young people of the reliable information they need to make responsible life decisions."
The TFN/ Wiley "study" not surprisingly criticized the abstinence-only sex education programs used in Texas. Among the erroneous findings of the TFN/Wiley "study" as reported were:
•Instruction on human sexuality often promotes stereotypes and biases based on gender and sexual orientation.
•Sex education materials regularly contain factual errors and perpetuate lies and distortions about condoms and STDs.
•Shaming and fear-based instruction are standard means of teaching students about sexuality in many schools.
The TFN/Wiley Feb. 2009 "study" attempted to link Scott & White Worth the Wait® with "fear and shame-based instruction about sex." Nothing could be further from the truth. For almost three years, I worked closely with Dr. Sulak and Scott & White Worth the Wait®; and I know the “gold standard” to which Dr. Sulak and her staff held everything that came out under the Scott & White name.
In 2009 TFN/Wiley released their bogus report and tried to vilify the Scott & White Worth the Wait® curriculum even though that program was used widely across the country because of its credible, medically/scientifically based, and up-to-date content. That program remains an outstanding program even today.
Patricia J. Sulak, M.D., is the director of Scott & White Worth the Wait®. Her credentials include: Professor at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, Temple, Texas; on staff in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Scott & White Memorial Hospital and Clinic; board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology; a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; and Board Examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Sulak continues to be a leading contraceptive researcher who believes in teens building their refusal skills and committing themselves to make healthy choices; this means practicing abstinence until they get married.
The Scott & White Worth the Wait® curriculum continues to be fully documented so that readers can verify for themselves the referenced sources. The curriculum is tied to the scientific, medical literature. In the high school notebook, students study medical charts that present medically based information on each of the leading contraceptives along with their failure rates.

DR. MIRIAM GROSSMAN -- BOARD CERTIFIED M. D.
Another qualified physician is Miriam Grossman (Board-certified M. D. with specialties in pediatrics, psychiatry, and child/& adolescent psychiatry) who came to Waco, Texas, on Sept. 4, 2012 and spoke at the Waco Convention Center.
[Here are notes that I took during this meeting. -- Donna Garner]
(a) Oxytocin makes girls want to be held, protected, and affectionate.
(b) Oxytocin is also secreted when a woman breastfeeds and is warmly holding her baby.
(c) Oxytocin tells the woman's body to expel the baby during delivery, and
(d) the Oxytocin hormone also goes to the baby's brain and tells him/her to relax.
(e) Women are wired to form a connection with the man during intercourse.
(f) Oxytocin creates trust between people and helps them connect with each other.
(g) During intercourse, the Oxytocin switches on the "love and trust " switch and switches "aversion" off.

CONTRAST DAVID C. WILEY WITH DR. SULAK AND DR. GROSSMAN
In contrast with such medical sexperts as Dr. Patricia Sulak and Dr. Miriam Grossman, who is David C. Wiley?
David C. Wiley is one of the "experts" with the University of Texas Prevention Research Center, and it is this Center that is now providing much of the contraceptive/condom sex education curriculum for schools in Texas. (9.16.11 - "More Texas Schools Teach Safe Sex with Abstinence" by Morgan Smith, Texas Tribune -- http://www.texastribune.org/texas-education/public-education/condom...
Wiley is not a medical doctor. He has his Ph.D. in Health Education. In February 12, 2010, Wiley was asked in a Q&A about the failure rate of condoms. He said they failed around 2% of the time. This is a totally erroneous statement and either reveals Wiley's lack of knowledge of the medical literature or his ideological bias.
Four different studies done by authentic healthcare professionals under scientific conditions can be found at Physicians for Life: http://www.physiciansforlife.org/content/view/204/37/
The best empirical study on condom effectiveness for STD prevention to date was conducted in 2001 by the National Institutes of Health, the FDA, the CDC, and USAID. A scientific panel of 28 experts collaborated to examine more than 138 peer-reviewed, published studies on condom effectiveness and STD's. What did they find?
"...no proof that condoms are effective in preventing the spread of the primary STDs that represent 98% of the 15 million new STD cases annually."
"Of eight major STDs [HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, chancroid, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, & human papillomavirus (HPV)] examined by the panel, condoms were not found to provide universal protection against any of these STDS."
The panel of 28 researchers found just two areas of condom effectiveness, both of which were significantly limited:
"When used correctly and consistently, condoms were found to reduce the risk of heterosexual HIV infection by 85 percent (p.14). The important qualification here is that most HIV is not transmitted heterosexually, and most gonorrhea is not transmitted from female to male."
According to the Centers for Disease Control, here are the complicated steps that a person is supposed to follow to use condoms correctly. How many adults would go through these steps? How many teens would have the maturity to go through these steps in the heat of passion when these same teens have problems remembering to bring their pens and pencils to class?
How to Use a Condom Consistently and Correctly:
DAVID C. WILEY AND U. T. PREVENTION RESEARCH CENTER -- UNQUALIFIED
The above medical facts compared to the erroneous statements from David C. Wiley totally disqualify him as an expert on condom effectiveness; his deliberately bogus statements put teens at medical risk. He and the U. T. Prevention Research Center have an obvious ideological agenda that is tied to Planned Parenthood, SEICUS, Texas Freedom Network, and the Human Rights Campaign. None of these entities should be considered medical experts. School administrators who insist on bringing these groups’ curriculum and programs into their schools should be held accountable by local parents who must try to protect their children; their lives depend on it.
REP. DONNA HOWARD- BIG PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUPPORTER
The problem is that Texas Rep. Donna Howard works closely with David C. Wiley; she was a recipient of the David C. Wiley Award from the Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.
For years, Rep. Donna Howard has tried to destroy the hard work of the conservative members on the Texas State Board of Education and in the Texas Legislature. She was designated by Young Conservatives of Texas in the last legislative session as the most liberal of all Texas House members (9%) while being scored only a 4% by Texas Eagle Forum.
How does Rep. Donna Howard continue to stay in power? Democrat Donna Howard and conservative Republican Dan Neil ran against each other in the Nov. 2010 election. That election was contested. A special Master's report concluded that the four-vote margin that separated Howard and Neil included five illegal votes for Howard that came from suspended registrants. Therefore, Dan Neil should have been declared the winner by one vote; but because of a House select committee appointed by pro-Planned Parenthood Speaker of the House Joe Straus, Democrat Donna Howard was declared the final winner.
Rep. Donna Howard is presently running for re-election to the Texas House (HD 48) in the Nov. 6, 2012, General Election. Her Republican opponent is Robert Dartanian Thomas, and Joe Edgar is the Libertarian opponent. Wouldn’t it be superb if Donna Howard were ousted from the Texas House?
WHERE WE ARE IN 2012
Now in 2012, the information in the two bogus Waxman "studies," the Texas Freedom Network/David C. Wiley's 2009 "study," Rep. Donna Howard's Planned Parenthood/Human Rights Campaign alliances, and the liberal media have managed to convince the public that contraceptive/condom sex education is the answer for our Texas public school students.
If teenagers listen to these “experts” and believe they can get away with sexual activity by using a condom or taking birth control pills, many will take what they believe is the easy way out, give in to their hormones, and participate in teenage sexual activity.
As usual, the David Wylie/U. T. Prevention and Research Center's curriculum material teaches the lie that condoms are in the same category as abstinence because "they reduce the risk of pregnancy and STD's." Condoms certainly do not equal abstinence nor do they necessarly offer protection from pregnancy!
Then, too, there are the all-important emotional aspects. As one concerned parent recently stated after watching the David Wylie/U. T. Prevention and Research Center's videos posted at: ( http://www.cfisd.net/dept2/curricu/secsci/HRU_Parentletter_English_... ) ( https://sph.uth.edu/iyg )
What is missing is the major emotional role that goes into teens choosing to have sex. I have seen nothing in these videos and curriculum about the devastation that the teens feel once the relationship ends, the effect of sexual activity on family members, the guilt, the effect on one's faith, and the fact that you cannot tell your husband/wife on your wedding day that you waited just for them, etc.
Rather than allow our Texas public school children to be indoctrinated to accept the LGBT lifestyle as normal, educators need to warn their students about the dangerous lifestyle that accompanies LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) sexual activities.
These following excerpts have been taken from my 9.4.12 article: http://nocompromisepac.ning.com/profiles/blogs/democrats-you-better...
"anal and oral STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) along with many bowel and throat diseases accompany the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) lifestyle."
"The Centers for Disease Control has tracked STD’s for many years, and the percentages of STD’s for MSM (men having sex with men) has fluctuated very little. The reason for this is because of the physical body which has a rich blood supply in the anal area very close to the surface of the skin. When unnatural objects are inserted there, ruptures of the blood vessels occur; and the STD’s are able to make their way right into the person’s bloodstream.
"Not only does anal sex increase a person’s chances of contracting STD’s but the person’s anal sphincter functions are damaged for life, making normal bowel movements difficult. Even though the LGBT community has tried to discredit gay bowel syndrome, they cannot invalidate the medical literature. The people who struggle with GBS know it is real, and the medical community knows it is real, too. Please go to this link to read a well-documented and up-to-date article on GBS taken from the medical literature: http://conservapedia.com/Gay_bowel_syndrome
MEDICAL FACT CHECK
1.21.11 – Centers for Disease Control – http://www.cdc.gov/msmhealth/for-your-health.htm -- “...among men who have sex with men (MSM), there are higher rates of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), tobacco and drug use, and depression compared to other men.”
8.12.11 – Centers for Disease Control – http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/transgender/index.htm?source=govdelivery – “Transgender communities in the United States (US) are among the groups at highest risk for HIV infection…Findings from a meta-analysis of 29 published studies showed that 27.7% of transgender women tested positive for HIV infection…”
“From 2005-2008…Most (74%) diagnoses of HIV infection in adults and adolescents were in males. Among males diagnosed with HIV infection from 2005-2008, 70% were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact. The percentage of diagnosed HIV infections attributed to male-to-male sexual contact was even larger (85%) among males aged 13 to 24 years…” ( 5.15.12 -- http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/resources/slides/msm/ind... )
The CDC’s seven steps for effective condom use require almost ideal medical conditions, and most people (particularly teens) in the midst of a sexual high are not going to take the time to go through those seven steps (4.11.11 -- http://www.cdc.gov/condomeffectiveness/brief.html )
If condoms were going to stop the spread of STD’s and protect women from unwanted pregnancies, why are there so many “condom babies” being delivered every day?
Also, the cancers and STD’s of the throat have increased exponentially as oral sexual activities have increased (both heterosexual and homosexual).
The truth is that STD’s and LGBT diseases are “equal opportunity providers.” It doesn’t make any difference who the person is, how rich or how poor that person is, what race or ethnicity the person is, or to what political party the person belongs. STD’s treat all persons the same!
Our bodies were made by the Creator in a very definite way, and activities that break the natural order of bodily functions are sure to disrupt the normalcy of those functions.
HOMOSEXUALITY AND CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE
Some of the most in-depth, well-documented, and up-to-date research on homosexuality and child sexual abuse has been done by Paul D. Cameron who wrote "Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse" -- http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=is02e3
From Cameron, we learn that the scientific, medical literature is also clear that pedophilia is connected to homosexuality. Obviously, by definition male homosexuals are sexually attracted to other males. A disproportionate number of gay men seek adolescent males or boys as sexual partners.
Schools also need to be concerned about the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which is a homosexual activist organization that targets schools and students. GLSEN encourages homosexual teachers to be open about their sexuality, as a way of providing role models to "gay" students. Because most states have laws or policies that ban employment discrimination based on "sexual orientation," these GLSEN teachers are free to interact with children and youth. Rightfully so, parents have become concerned that their public school children may be molested or even recruited to go into the LGBT lifestyle.
Those in the LGBT community like to say that homosexuals comprise 10% of the population, but recent studies show that homosexuals make up only 3% of the population, yet these 3% are committing 33% of the sex crimes against children.
CHILDREN REARED BY SAME-SEX PARENTS -- NEGATIVE OUTCOMES
Dr. Mark Regnerus, a long-time professor in the University of Texas Sociology Department, recently conducted “gold standard” research in which he used a data set of nearly 3,000 randomly selected American young adults raised by gay parents vs. those raised by mother-father parents. He looked at the young adults’ lives and compared them on 40 measures of social, emotional, and relationship outcomes.
Dr. Regnerus’ conclusion: When Regnerus compared young adults reared by mother-father families, the young adults reared by lesbian mothers had negative outcomes in 24 of 40 categories. Those reared by gay fathers had negative outcomes in 19 categories … “Children appear most apt to succeed well as adults when they spend their entire childhood with their married mother and father, and especially when the parents remain married to the present day.”

MILITARY IMPACTED BY LGBT AGENDA
One other aspect of the LGBT agenda is the impact it has had on our military. In a Military Times survey from January 2012, it noted:
Of 792 active-duty service members and mobilized reservists who completed the survey, 150 (18.9%) indicated that since DADT was repealed, someone in their units disclosed being gay or bisexual. Of those, 32 (21.3%) said that the disclosure had a negative impact on their units. In addition, 36 (4.5%) reported that since DADT was repealed, an openly gay or bisexual person joined their units. Of those, 12 (33.3%) said that the newcomer had a negative impact on their units." (9.20.12 -- http://www.frcblog.com/2012/09/a-year-after-repeal-homosexuals-expl... ) ( http://medicalxpress.com/news/2012-09-factors-hiv-navy-marines-dont... ) ( http://www.cmrlink.org/ )
How did Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) get repealed? “Where there’s a will, there is a way.” Evidently the Obama administration decided to force through the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in the military no matter what. They chose the time during the lame duck session of Congress after the Nov. 2, 2010 elections. They leaked secret survey information to the Washington Post BEFORE the survey was even completed. They also corrupted and massaged the data by adding various percentiles together to come up with the pre-ordained figure of 70% to repeal. They also leaked secret information to a reporter who helped them spin their soundbites so that Congress and the public would be fooled when the bogus data was released. This is corruption of the highest order because it affects the readiness of our military.
First, the public must get informed about the medical facts; and that is why I have written this report.
Next, we have to share boldly this information with anyone and everyone who will listen. Because we have sat back and allowed society to sexualize our children, our children are paying the price. We adults must make a concerted effort – an intentional effort – to share the facts with school administrators, educators, school board members, legislators, policymakers, friends, relatives, acquaintances, the media, the people with whom we go to church and those with whom we serve through community organizations. So long as we are embarrassed to lay out the medical facts, then the lies from the “other side” will continue to prevail in our society. We adults must protect our nation’s children.
