Wake Up Austin ISD Parents!

Reno, Nevada parents kick out a sex ed program similar to Welcoming Schools:

Outcry From Parents Forces School to Scrap Sex-Ed Plans and Keep Abstinence Program Rita Diller   Aug 23, 2017   Reno, NV    
Planned Parenthood’s basic operating plan is very straightforward.
1. It installs sex education programs in schools.
2. These sex ed programs then create a demand for birth control among teens.
3. The birth control fails, which then leads to abortions.
Planned Parenthood makes money at each step in this process.
Planned Parenthood and its cohorts have developed a document called the National Sexuality Education Standards. These “standards” are not part of Common Core or any other national program. Rather, they are a horrible set of ideas intended to teach youth about sex, and are being pushed throughout the country. It is not surprising that responsible parents throughout the United States are fighting to keep these sex ed programs out of schools.
One such battle is currently raging in Reno, Nevada, where a document put together by Advocates for Youth (an organization originally called the Center for Population Options) was used to create a new sex program called SHARE. The proposed SHARE program is intended to replace an abstinence-only program in the schools and has met heavy resistance. The Washoe County School District formed a committee to recommend a new program and SHARE was its recommendation.
According to reports in the Reno Gazette-Journal, the committee’s proposed curriculum, which covered a wide array of topics ranging from respect to safe sex practices, was criticized for straying from the currently taught abstinence-only curriculum and interjecting “progressive ideals” surrounding a person’s sexuality, among other things. Major sticking points centered around topics that some community members felt were broached too early in a child’s life or should be left to a parent’s discretion. For instance, drafts of the proposed curriculum referenced vaginal, anal, and oral sex as early as the 6th grade.
The outcry from parents and other members of the community was so strong that the school district had no choice but to cancel plans to implement the SHARE program. The current abstinence-only program will continue being presented for the 2017–2018 school year.
The director of curriculum for the school district said: “We hoped for lots of input and we hoped for community involvement, but we didn’t anticipate the anger that we saw.”
Congratulations to the parents in the Washoe County School District for getting angry. As Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, SIECUS, and others try to push these National Sexuality Education Standards on our children across the country, we must all get angry.
Our children’s lives, health, and souls are at stake. Let us all emulate the parents in Reno and refuse to allow these programs anywhere near our children.

What Doctors Tell Kids Behind Closed Doors

What Doctors Tell Kids Behind Closed Doors
Linda Harvey, WND.com
Friends of ours related a chilling incident that happened to their teen son. 

Visiting a family physician for a school sports’ physical, the boy was asked by the doctor, ”So, are you attracted to girls, to boys, or both?”

Stunned, the boy replied, “To girls,” and later recounted this exchange to his parents.

It’s becoming standard medical practice to approach homosexuality and bisexuality as normal.

And it’s common for adolescent patients to be counseled separately from parents during an office visit so a private conversation can occur about sexual practices, contraception, condoms and other “needs.”

Why this elitist social engineering of other people’s children? Parental control can be a child’s enemy, so the thinking goes, sometimes motivated by ignorance, fear and repression. Child emancipation/separation tactics are being pushed everywhere in medicine, as they are in public education.

“They” know what’s best for your kids.

Highly-educated professionals in a healing occupation who should know better sometimes discourage children from staying close to the people who care the most about them in the whole world. They often have contempt for traditional family values that may motivate a teen to remain responsibly abstinent until marriage. 

Why keep the parents in the dark about medical advice? Friends of ours related a chilling incident that happened to their teen son.

Highly educated professionals in a healing occupation who should know better sometimes discourage children from staying close to the people who care the most about them. They often have contempt for traditional family values that may motivate a teen to remain responsibly abstinent until marriage.
Why keep the parents in the dark about medical advice?
Because some believe exaggerated tales of child abuse or conflict over the adolescent’s budding sexuality and parental boundaries. Schools behave this way as well, with numerous incidents recounted of children directed to abortion clinics and pro-homosexual counselors and groups without parental knowledge.
It’s a busybody mentality wedded to the ethic of individual freedom, even for younger children before they reach the natural balance provided by maturity. That maturity also corresponds – or did until recent years – to legal restrictions as well.
Leftists are willing, even eager to smash boundaries, including age-of-consent laws. They believe they are entitled to advise your children on intimate and life-changing matters without your input.
When I was a young teacher and a committed social liberal volunteering at Planned Parenthood, I told several eighth-grade girl students who asked me how to obtain contraception without a parent’s knowledge.
I am terribly ashamed of this chapter in my past and confess right now to the Lord how sorry I am.
I never learned the results of my irresponsible guidance, but the reality is, such educational or medical advice can be terribly destructive.
I recently interviewed Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, on my Ohio radio show. When questioned about gender dysphoria in children, she made a very chilling point – that current medical protocols have raced beyond any science to back them up.
In other words, children and teens are guinea pigs, being administered potent, life-changing drugs and steered down Mengelian paths by physicians at some of the top children’s medical centers in the nation who cater to radical sexual politics, not to empirical evidence that supports such treatment.
Dr. Cretella’s courageous claim that aiding a child in gender “transition” is “child abuse” is being disputed by an Australian study, but tellingly, the researchers fail to make a scientific case for their challenge.
One organization famous for ignoring scientific truth is Planned Parenthood, whose new guidelines for parents of preschoolers got a lot of publicity recently. We should teach children that their genitals do not determine their gender, they claim. The abortion giant is now also in the hormone-treatment business.
One commentator, S.E. Cupp, said this about the PP advice: “Of all the things it is – absurd, irresponsible, pretentious – one thing it definitely is not is scientific.”
The medically accepted age at which minors can give consent is decreasing rapidly. In some states, the law is explicit. Others, not so much.
The Guttmacher Institute, established as a research arm of Planned Parenthood, summarizes the liberalization of consent, which they view positively:
“The legal ability of minors to consent to a range of sensitive health care services – including sexual and reproductive health care, mental health services and alcohol and drug abuse treatment – has expanded dramatically over the past 30 years. This trend reflects the recognition that, while parental involvement in minors’ health care decisions is desirable, many minors will not avail themselves of important services if they are forced to involve their parents. … In most cases, state consent laws apply to all minors age 12 and older. In some cases, however, states allow only certain groups of minors – such as those who are married, pregnant or already parents – to consent. ”
Yes, the excuse that “teens won’t report problems” is used everywhere to legitimize the left’s sexual agenda. The results speak for themselves.
Some states remain silent on whether a minor can receive contraception without parental consent – Ohio, for instance. So what happens? Clinics and physicians probably do whatever they want. And Title X clinics – like Planned Parenthood – will keep a teen’s visit “confidential.”
But the trend toward medical lawlessness and mythology is understandable once you look at people in key leadership posts. Take, for instance, Dr. Rachel Levine in Pennsylvania, the state’s physician general. “She” was actually born a “he.” And he is not alone.
In Virginia, Dr. Marissa Levine is the state’s commissioner of health. It’s unclear if these two are related. But what is clear is “Marissa” is a guy named Mark who identifies now as a woman.
With leadership so foundationally compromised, why are we surprised when sodomy is sold in private exam rooms to teen boys and grade school children are given puberty blockers by pediatric “experts”?
Katherine Kersten in The Weekly Standard said it this way: “In short: The use of sex-reassignment treatments in children amounts to a massive, uncontrolled experiment.”
I would submit that the same description applies to the normalization of homosexuality and promiscuity in adolescents.
And educators, doctors and public health professionals should worry about angry parents at the door today, confronting the flagrant abuse of their children.
They also should worry about facing a much more daunting Authority sometime in the future. And He will not be smiling.

Robert Lopez's report on meeting in Austin

Concerned Parents of Austin, which includes some Mass Resistance members, held a meeting at a public library in Austin on August 12, to discuss what is being introduced in Austin schools. Caryl Ayala, Jen Delgado, and Debbie Simons gave excellent Powerpoint presentations on the harmful things going on in Austin schools. The slides are available and full of pertinent information. A group of people attended who claimed they were affiliated with the LGBT community. I was there and witnessed first hand the way these "pro-LGBT" people conducted themselves in the setting of a public education discussion.

I've spent decades surrounded by gay & lesbian people. Obviously not all gays act like jerks. Many of them are nice and wonderful friends & family. These folks who attended represent the worst of them-but they also represent the slice of LGBT culture that will be forced on kids through programs like Welcoming Schools. They demonstrate why the mental health profession classified homosexuality as a mental illness for so many decades prior to the 1970s. Social stigma and prejudice aside, there are many behaviors rooted in dysfunction, mental illness, and emotional abuse, which are so predominant in the LGBT culture that people engaging in such conduct think it's normal and think people who find it abnormal have something wrong with them.

You can see very clearly how the abusive, mentally ill behaviors rampant in gay life worked their way into programs like Welcoming Schools, which seem to coach children to find grooming, ritual shaming, aggression, ganging up, peer pressure, hypersexualization, gossip, sarcasm, and emotional cruelty as normal. 

I was actually mortified by the way they acted yesterday. Their conduct showed exactly why these people & their allies have no place in school whatsoever. They engaged in aggressive bullying and mental abuse in front of us, mocking people's experiences, ganging up on people, forcing false narratives, shutting down learning, sexualizing people unfairly. They mocked people's credentials, couldn't understand or evaluate sources of information, couldn't focus on one subject, and violated the basic norms of academic behavior. They interrupted people and appealed to social ostracism. Plus many of them were threatening to dox people and record them saying things they didn't like.


They can't deal with their own history or intellectual origins. They erupted in rage at passages from Alfred Kinsey's 1948 book.


At the mention of HIV infections for kids they erupted in laughter. How is that funny? At the mention of grooming they had contemptuous outbursts. Three of the most vocal women told me in a ridiculous discussion afterwards that they believed nobody is pressured to come out as gay, which is a denial of outing and grooming & the history of both forms of abuse in the gay community. It shows either willful ignorance or outright deception about the vicious treatment and legal harassment currently conducted against people who come out as gay and then later go back on that and live out a straight or celibate lifestyle. The LGBT objectors at the meeting showed no concern for kids being pressured to have sex or shamed for being virgins, which flies in the face of an enormous controversy currently raging about Title IX. One woman said, "consent is a very easy topic," which is in fact not what we see with the massive numbers of schools embroiled in Title IX lawsuits. When I mentioned molestation they actually said, "look, if you can't deal with who you are." I responded, "That's bullying-you're bullying me." Her friend turned and said, "don't yell at my friend," when her friend had been raising her voice at me.


They claimed repeatedly that children can be homosexual at ages as young as four, yet they claimed that this wasn't "about sex." The logical fallacy that you can discuss "being gay" without alluding to sex is utterly dangerous. It's the style of predators. It's basically saying that you can get vulnerable people comfortable with the identity of homosexuality without them actually realizing that you intend to accustom them to having their anus traumatized and decades of their life spent in a community with precisely this kind of behavior. The two lesbians with whom I spoke also demonstrated that they were seasoned at predatory behavior. When I discussed concerns that statistics on bullying used to include "insinuating or starting rumors that someone is gay" but I don't see that anymore, they said, "if they're told there's nothing wrong with being gay, then there wouldn't be anything wrong with insinuating that someone's gay." I responded, "if that activity does not make them happy, it's harmful to tell the child they're gay." They said, "literally nobody is forcing people to have gay sex." They either have no clue about the high percentage of boys who are molested by men, or they think this isn't molestation.

This is terrifying.


The ones who feigned concern and tried to appear civil were the worst because they were engaging in the kind of emotional aggression that's rampant in the gay community. Abusers try to draw someone close and then humiliate them publicly when it will cause the most harm. The film Mean Girls captured it most iconically.


On the scholarly side, their behavior shows the death of academic inquiry. One woman said she had four daughters in the Austin school system and she wanted all her girls to be taught about vulvas and penises at young ages. She demanded proof that sex ed led to "society's downfall." I stepped in and answered her that cause and effect are difficult to establish when there are so many factors like pornography and we're talking about a massive human population reacting to complex sexualities. After saying she didn't care about "feelings" she responded by saying "I went to Catholic school in the 1980s and if you don't think these problems existed then" to which I answered "but there's data. These are statistics." They then proceeded to interrupt and claim that the data came from an illegitimate source, then had nothing to say when the data came from US federal agencies under Obama.


I was mortified by the whole event because I spent decades immersed in that community, surrounded by abusers and molesters who function precisely this way. They draw you into manipulative arguments and constantly misrepresent what you say. One woman kept saying, "we just want to show kids that gays exist and it's okay," when:


1) Schools don't exist for therapy sessions
2) Little kids aren't gay
3) Gay is a sexual behavior and it's not as simple as saying it's "okay"
4) We're not trying to force people not to talk about gayness in their homes, but they're trying to force everyone to talk about gayness in kindergarten.

They say they want to talk about gayness but then they punish anyone whose information (never mind viewpoint) does not exalt their specific and wildly misinformed bias about sexuality. I suspect one reason they want to bring up gayness all the time, especially around children, is that they experience sadistic pleasure in making people uncomfortable and intimidating people into saying things that they do not believe. It is a wonderful form of control to keep the focus set on an area where others are subject to their powers of veto, retaliation, and discipline.

Tragically, some of the people engaging in anti-academic misbehavior identified themselves as educators. One woman came claiming she was a librarian who loudly interrupted presenters. Despite being told repeatedly that questions would come at the end she kept blurting out loud irrelevant questions, one being "what is the source for that?" referring to a book with over 1,000 footnotes. This is a librarian? She doesn't understand how to remain quiet and she doesn't understand that a scholarly monograph has many sources, not just one? Later she came up to me to ask, "where are you a professor and what do you teach?" I told her. She scowled, "that explains a lot," and rudely walked away. I had done nothing to treat her rudely whatsoever. But this is the kind of woman who's running a library for little kids and dealing with their parents? The woman should not be allowed to run a library if she will encourage bullying, social shame, and stupidity in the realm she oversees-research! She also insisted that having pornographic books in a library accessible to kindergartners was harmless because "we are not censors." So taxpayers should pay her salary and give her a fund to buy dirty books and nobody should expect that she dispense of the books responsibly.

AISD has a lot of problems.

They are completely dishonest about the kinds of bullying that accompany homosexual subculture. The outing, the pressure, the grooming, the false claims that if you're uncomfortable with it you're "not able to accept yourself," the victim-blaming (they mocked someone who said he'd been molested), the constant use of peer pressure and embarrassment (two women in the back said "a majority of people in this room think you are wrong") -- these are all behaviors that are as damaging as the worst kinds of social abuse and make kids nervous, insecure, and likely to make poor sexual decisions. These are all behaviors that will not be diminished through Welcoming Schools or any other kind of pro-LGBT curriculum in existence. These are all behaviors we saw coming from people who champion and implement the policy.

All of them totally avoided the evidence Caryl Ayala provided of racism in the Welcoming Schools program, which was caught in an email requested through FOIA saying there was a problem with schools that have "too high of a Hispanic population."


These are bad for schools.


Stop these people. Texas must stop these people!
