Apparently, LezGetReal is out to convert children into being gay by putting them into close reach of “homosexual-themed pornography.” Well, that is according to Linda Harvey of Mission America. She believes that “homosexual news blogs” and other websites “that are sympathetic to the social and political goals of the homosexual movement” are luring children into visiting the sites in order to research the debate on same-sex marriage and then exposing them to homosexual-themed pornography.
Harvey does not believe that homosexuality is not a choice, and claims that it is a “lie” and a “pervasive fiction”
Harvey beleives that “Schools, Hollywood and even the top leaders in our country are all busy selling homosexuality to kids,” and that pornography and other “deceptive influences” are “convincing [kids] to believe they are gay.”
Harvey doesn’t explain why a lack of internet pornography lead to Harvey Milk, Freddy Mercury, Billie Jean King and so many others being gay prior to the popularity of the internet or the pervasiveness of internet pornography.
In fact, homosexuality long predates internet pornography.
I’ve gotten calls over the years from parents who are brokenhearted because a young son or daughter has revealed a homosexual preference. My role is not to be a psychologist but I try to share some resources with parents who are coping with such a tough situation and they often share with me that pornography played a part, particularly with boys, in convincing them to believe they are gay. But usually by the time this comes out the feelings and fantasies have been nurtured for years. It seems to me that in the present climate where schools, Hollywood and even the top leaders in our country are all busy selling homosexuality to kids that we have to watch those other deceptive influences that can chime in on top of all this to stir feelings in a young person that were not in play before.
Internet pornography can be the kerosene on an already simmering fire of adolescent hormones and confusion, and these feelings can bring them to precisely the wrong conclusion. Manipulating feelings in the wrong direction is what pornography does anyway. Homosexual-themed pornography is extremely accessible to young people if they ever visit any websites covering the gay agenda as news. For instance, if your child was during a report on same-sex marriage just researching the political issue and visiting sites that are sympathetic to the social and political goals of the homosexual movement may quickly bring them in touch with explicit images because many of the homosexual news blogs have soft-porn gay dating sites or worse as ads. So what is the reaction of your son or daughter to such graphic images?
If they feel a curiosity it may start a process of wondering if they could be homosexual. This is not true of course but the really tragic thing is they are not likely to share this question with you the parent, it just seems too personal. If they follow up and visit these sites some will experience sexual feelings and mistake these for the pervasive fiction of some inborn gay identity. After all, isn’t this the message that kids get everywhere that ‘some of you are destined for homosexuality and there is nothing you can do about it so just go with it and be proud’? All of this, of course, is a lie. Adolescents will feel sexual feelings because they are in puberty and erotic images can evoke in an often unhealthy way a human sexual response.
