Won’t Get Fooled By Groomers Again?

'Men can menstruate,' said Dennis Prager in 2019, stating a left-wing claim. Libs called him hysterical. He was right. What's next?

This is making the rounds right now. Watch the clip:

Prager was absolutely right then, but you need to watch the clip to see how Maher and his guests think Prager is just a right-wing crackpot for saying this.

Now, it’s People magazine saying it.

It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying it.

It’s the ACLU saying it.

This is what is conventional liberal wisdom today:


This is how it always, always goes with the Left, on sex stuff. It’s the Law of Merited Impossibility in action: “Men can’t menstruate, and when they can, you bigots will deserve it.”

I don’t know what else normies need to know about how the Left works before they realize that these people really, honest to God are groomers. Not necessarily “groomers” in the sense of “they all want to have sex with kids,” but groomers in the sense that they want to get inside the heads of children and screw their minds up completely about sex and gender.

The must-follow Twitter account 4thWaveNow — seriously, if you don’t follow it, you really must start — which tracks the gender madness from a critical point of view, points out that there are well-funded organizations that have been mainstreaming this stuff in schools for a long time — even giving advice for how to deceive parents:

Twenty-two years ago — yes, that far back — I wrote a freelance piece for the Weekly Standard about “Fistgate”. It was about Brian Camenker and Scott Whiteman, two Massachusetts fathers who got into a world of trouble simply for trying to expose what LGBT activists were doing in public schools. Excerpts:

Frustrated by official indifference, Whiteman secretly took his tape recorder along to the 10th annual conference of the Boston chapter of GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, at Tufts University on March 25. GLSEN (pronounced “glisten”) is a national organization whose purpose is to train teachers and students and develop programs to, in the words of its Boston chapter leader, “challenge the anti-gay, hetero-centric culture that still prevails in our schools.”

The state-sanctioned conference, which was open to the public but attended chiefly by students, administrators, and teachers, undercut the official GLSEN line–that their work is aimed only at making schools safer by teaching tolerance and respect.

The event, backed by the state’s largest teachers’ union, included such workshops as “Ask the Transsexuals,” “Early Childhood Educators: How to Decide Whether to Come Out at Work or Not,” “The Struggles and Triumphs of Including Homosexuality in a Middle School Curriculum” (with suggestions for including gay issues when teaching the Holocaust), “From Lesbos to Stonewall: Incorporating Sexuality into a World History Curriculum,” and “Creating a Safe and Inclusive Community in Elementary Schools,” in which the “Rationale for integrating glbt [gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender] issues in the early elementary years will be presented.”

Whiteman sat in on a “youth only, ages 14-21” workshop called “What They Didn’t Tell You About Queer Sex & Sexuality in Health Class.” If “they” didn’t tell you about this stuff, it’s probably because “they” worried they’d be sent to jail.

The raucous session was led by Massachusetts Department of Education employees Margot Abels and Julie Netherland, and Michael Gaucher,an AIDS educator from the Massachusetts public health agency. Gaucher opened the session by asking the teens how they know whether or not they’ve had sex. Someone asked whether oral sex was really sex.

“If that’s not sex, then the number of times I’ve had sex has dramatically decreased, from a mountain to a valley, baby!” squealed Gaucher. He then coaxed a reluctant young participant to talk about which orifices need to be filled for sex to have occurred: “Don’t be shy, honey, you can do it.”

Later, the three adults took written questions from the kids. One inquired about “fisting,” a sex practice in which one inserts his hand and forearm into the rectum of his partner. The helpful and enthusiastic Gaucher demonstrated the proper hand position for this act. Abels described fisting as “an experience of letting somebody into your body that you want to be that close and intimate with,” and praised it for putting one “into an exploratory mode.”

Gaucher urged the teens to consult their “really hip” Gay/Straight Alliance adviser for hints on how to come on to a potential sex partner. The trio went on to explain that lesbians could indeed experience sexual bliss through rubbing their clitorises together, and Gaucher told the kids that male ejaculate is rumored to taste “sweeter if people eat celery.” On and on like this the session went.

Camenker and Whiteman transcribed the tape and wrote a lengthy report for Massachusetts News, a conservative monthly. Then they announced that copies of the recorded sessions would be made available to state legislators and the local media. GLSEN threatened to sue them for violating Massachusetts’ wiretap laws and invading the privacy of the minors present at one workshop.

The tapes went out anyway and became a talk radio sensation. On May 19, state education chief David Driscoll canned Abels and Netherland and terminated Gaucher’s contract. But Driscoll also insisted that the controversial workshop was an aberration that shouldn’t be allowed to derail the entire program. Abels fumed to the press that the education department had known perfectly well what she had been doing for years and hadn’t cared until the tapes had surfaced. Camenker, ironically, agreed.

That same weekend, a day after the Boston Globe editorial page editorialized against Camenker and Whiteman, thousands of New England homosexual youths marched on the Massachusetts State House in a scheduled “pride” rally. David LaFontaine, chairman of the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, denounced Camenker and Whiteman: “The hatred we’ve heard on the radio and smeared across the TV in the last week … is the prejudice that simmers beneath the surface [which] has now bubbled up into the open in all of its ugliness.”

Then, state Superior Court judge Allan van Gestel issued a gag order prohibiting the Parents’ Rights Coalition, the news media, and the entire state legislature from disseminating or even discussing the tapes–though the conference had been in part sponsored by the state, and had been conducted by and attended by state employees. One might think lawmakers and the local media would have been outraged.

Not in Massachusetts. Nary a peep of protest issued from the legislature, and aside from a Boston Herald editorial denouncing the move, the news media were as silent as the grave. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, a gay-rights supporter who is not most people’s idea of a conservative, took to the airwaves to blast the ruling and the establishment’s indifference to it.

“Sometimes civil libertarians become ambivalent when the First Amendment clashes with their liberal agenda. I’ve been fighting that for years,” Dershowitz told me. “It’s a situation where the political correctness of the Boston news media has caused it to take a back seat,” says Boston civil liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate. “Of course, what will happen is, in some other case in which the news media will have more of an interest, where one of their darlings will get restrained, then suddenly they will find they’ve allowed a precedent to be set. It’s a perfect example of the news media not rushing in and protecting [free speech] no matter whose ox is being gored.”

The Boston media virtually blacked out the story. This is standard operating procedure for nearly all the US media: there is only one narrative allowed on any story having to do with LGBT. More:

“The whole idea that [gay activists] have been trying to suppress this has been helpful. Nobody listened to us beforehand,” says Whiteman. “Everybody thought we were making it up. The fact that they’re trying to cover it up proves that they have something to cover up. We’ve caught them red-handed.”

But will their expose ultimately make a difference? GLSEN/Boston boasts the most advanced programs of its kind in the nation. As goes Massachusetts, in time, so may go the rest of America. Camenker and Whiteman are on the front lines of a battle likely to spread to school districts from coast to coast, as the powerful GLSEN organization, with sponsorship money from American Airlines, Dockers Khakis, and Kodak, presses its radical agenda under the innocent-sounding guise of “safety,” “human rights,” and “suicide prevention.”

“That money goes down a rathole to fund gay clubs in schools, and gay rallies and conferences,” fumes Camenker. “None of the people who get the money are legitimate suicide prevention groups. They’re all these gay groups.”

GLSEN will be holding its annual leadership training conference next month in San Francisco, to be preceded by a two-day workshop teaching students and educators how to push the gay agenda in local schools–even at the kindergarten level–as a human rights issue. Books available from the GLSEN website include Queering Elementary Education and Preventing Prejudice, a collection of elementary-school lesson plans built around themes such as “What Is a Boy/Girl!” and “Freedom to Marry.”

Schools’ surreptitiously introducing this material to students, says Whiteman, “puts kids at risk and puts parents completely out of the loop with the sexual identities of their children. The schools take this elitist attitude that they know best.”

The point of this activist drive, warns Camenker, is to desensitize children to gay sex at a very young age and counteract moral instruction to the contrary given by their parents and religious leaders. If you protest, he warns, be prepared to be stone-walled and sneered at by school officials, smeared in the press, and denounced as a hatemonger and a bigot by gay activists.

Yet what choice is left to parents but to fight? “We’re facing an incredible evil here. It chills you to the bone,” says Camenker, an Orthodox Jew brought closer to his faith by this struggle. “The only way we’re not going to get run over is if people wake up to what’s happening to our children.”

“These people are bullies,” he continues. “People are afraid of them, afraid of being called homophobes. I don’t enjoy this, but this is America, and I’m not going to run away.”

I wonder what happened to these brave men. They were prophetic. They were on the front lines before anybody else. What they dealt with over two decades ago in Boston is now nationwide.

Are we still collectively afraid of them? Are we really willing to sacrifice our children to them, still? This activism only goes one way, you know. They lie to parents about what they want to do to kids, and then depend on allies in government and media to cover up for their exploitative lies. They have been doing this for at least twenty years, as the Boston story shows. They are not going to stop until they are made to stop by parents demanding strong action from elected representatives.

Don’t apologize for calling them “groomers”. That’s exactly what they are. The Democratic Party supports them to the hilt, and not (yet?) enough Republicans stand up to them. Woke Capitalism adores them. You will be laughed at by the Bill Mahers of the world, but you will be correct, as time will show.
