Kevin Donnelly vs “buggery 101”

One of the sadly amusing aspects of the way that our society views sexuality is the rather desperate way that so many “gay rights activists want to insist that all aspects of human  sexual practice are “natural” and therefore should be absolutely affirmed by society and by extension our education system. Surely it all boils down to precisely how “natural” is defined and its the definition that underlays the piece in today’s Fairfax press that attacks Keven Donnelly for committing the heinous sin of suggesting

‘Forgotten is that many parents would consider the sexual practices of gays, lesbians and transgender individuals decidedly unnatural and that such groups have a greater risk in terms of transmitting STDs and AIDS.”

In the eyes of the “politically correct” it is the worst sin imaginable to be in any way critical of the sexual practices of gay people and the worst possible sin is to claim or imply that such practices are “unnatural” . While I and most other parents are more than ok with the idea that our children should be taught that there is a great deal of diversity in the way that human desire and sexuality is expressed there is no need to pretend that everything done in the quest for sexual pleasure is “natural”. It should be enough for students to learn that the primary consideration when it comes to any sexual activity between any individuals is that it has to be entirely consensual, we don’t have to pretend that there is anything “natural” about some types of sexual congress because homosexuals want to have their desires and sexual practices socially  affirmed. 

Yet the social engineers of the left just won’t give up on “buggery 101” until it is front and centre in every classroom and they will attack without mercy anyone who might dare suggest that some sexual practices are anything but natural. Thus we find Fairfax dragging out the cudgels to bash Kevin Donnelly just because he points out the widely held belief that not all types of sex are entirely approved of by the parents out there. The politically correct teaching unions of course think that they know better than parents but they forget that its not their place to dictate what is taught to our children. That is the prerogative of parents; teachers are both our servants and proxies in the teaching process not our betters or our  masters and they clearly need to be reminded of this fact.

Mind bending and benders

Personally I don’t give  a rats arse who any adult chooses to have sex with as long as that  other person is a consenting adult  and as long as they do it in private (so they don’t scare the horses) then I am completely at ease with just about all expressions  of human sexual desire. However there are some people who find their own homosexual desires troubling enough that they seek the services of the mind bending profession to help them be the person that they want to be. Frankly if a gay man or a lesbian has the desire to be straight why should it be considered wrong  for a psychologist to help them achieve this result?   Why is there such a fuss and such a witch hunt from the homosexual lobby against anyone who provides such therapy?

Mrs Pilkington was targeted by a gay journalist who persuaded her to help him change his sexuality. Patrick Strudwick attended sessions with her with a tape recorder strapped to his stomach and then published a critical article about her in the Independent newspaper.

She is now appearing before a professional conduct panel of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and faces losing her accreditation if she is found to have breached its rules.

The Christian Legal Centre, a group that is supporting Mrs Pilkington in the case, said yesterday: ‘Shortly before the hearing, BACP required all witness statements to be passed to them with contact details.

‘Immediately after supplying the statements, an expert witness received several menacing phone calls, threats and intimidation, telling the witness not to attend.’

The organisation has reported the alleged intimidation to police and called for a full investigation. A BACP official confirmed yesterday that the hearing was adjourned.

The ‘conversion’ therapy practised by Mrs Pilkington, 60, is held in contempt by gay lobby groups.

Mr Strudwick runs a campaign called the Stop Conversion Therapy Taskforce, and has said: ‘Every major mental health organisation in Britain and America is opposed to attempts to change someone’s sexuality. There is good evidence not only that it doesn’t work but that it is harmful.’

Mrs Pilkington has treated ten patients over the past decade using a programme called Sexual Orientation Change Efforts. She says that her gay son is among those she has been able to help.

The psychotherapist has said that she was entrapped by Mr Strudwick, who she said approached her claiming he was depressed and needed therapy. She added that she had told him she worked within a Christian and Biblical framework and he had agreed to that.

Andrea Minichiello Williams, of the Christian Legal Centre, said yesterday: ‘Mrs Pilkington deserves to get a fair hearing by her professional body. In this case the homosexual lobby has been extremely militant and sought to silence by threats and intimidation.

There is one thing that we can say without doubt and that is that sexual desire and its gender focus is not an either or situation it can be very strongly focused on one gender or it can be very malleable depending of lots of different factors and it seems to me that far too many Gay activists are far too invested in proving that their desire for members of their own gender is “natural” to accept that some people may want that “natural” desire changed to a desire for the opposite gender. I know a couple of people who were quite clearly homosexual in their youth and who now are exclusively heterosexual and yes I know that that is purely anecdotal but to claim that people can’t change is just not credible. The important thing here is that the homosexual who wishes to “convert” should no more be demonized than the straight who wishes to take up the hobby of buggery; its their choice and if they want to seek the help of a mind bender to achieve their wish for change  then that therapist should not be subject to threats and intimidation either. The important factor here has to be that the the wishes of teh individual seeking therapy have to be respected, so if they seek to comes to terms with being homosexual that is the direction that the therapy should work towards but if they want to change then then that should likewise be respected by the therapist.

That said I don’t think that the dogooder industries (Psychiatrists, Psychologists,  , and various social workers) have as much of a handle of helping anyone change their lives as they think they do.  these “professionals” may be well intentioned but they too have their barrows to push and they sometimes to more harm than good. Which is why they are all so good at paving a certain road.

Another lesson from the team that brought us Buggery 101

Is this appropriate behaviour for  school teachers???

Bolshie teachers and league tables

What is it with the socialists in the teaching unions when it comes to empirical measurement of their students abilities to read or to add up?

Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard has refused to rule out supporting action against teachers if they go through with their threat to boycott the tests, saying industrial action taken outside the enterprise bargaining period is not lawful.

Teachers covered by federal laws in Victoria, the ACT and the Northern Territory could have their pay docked by a minimum of four hours if Fair Work Australia deemed the boycott unlawful. Teachers in other state jurisdictions also face penalties, although these would probably apply to the union rather than individuals.

“Action that’s taken not within the context of bargaining is unprotected and there are sanctions and penalties under the workplace relations law to deal with unprotected industrial action,” Ms Gillard, who is also Education and Workplace Relations Minister, told ABC radio.

[…]

The Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry said it strongly supported the national tests in numeracy and literacy.

Opposition education spokesman Christopher Pyne said the Coalition did not support the boycott, but also did not think the website would be useful.

“The government is creating the information publicly that will allow schools to be criticised and allow school communities to feel bad about their particular school but they are not giving principals the autonomy to act to change those bad results,” he told ABC radio.

Anyone would think that the chalkface warriors are afraid that they will be judged upon the results that they manage to achieve in the classroom, you know that they will actually have to successfully teach our children trivialities like mathematics and English, rather than focusing on the issues that really matter  like the green religion (praise be to Gaia), “progressive” sexual morality (buggery 101) and how to praise Brother Number One for all that is good in the land…

Personally though I think that Chris Pyne has a point that the government website does not provide much help when it comes to principals improving their school’s performance, but then this government has always feared ceding  control of  indoctination education  to either parents or school principals who don’t follow their  approved ideology….

Now they want to teach “buggery101” to Victorian 10 year olds

You just have to admire their tenacity, Those would be social engineers from the left, they are so intent upon imposing their values upon the greater community that they are constantly seeking new ways of usurping the roles of parents.

Of course the interesting thing about this graphic is that we are given just the raw numbers here and everyone knows that for things like infection rates the numbers have to be linked to the population size to have any meaning at all.

The Australian Medical Association’s state budget submission, obtained by The Sunday Age, urges that mandatory, comprehensive sex education be introduced into all state schools. Topics such as anal sex, mutual masturbation and date rape would be part of the curriculum, and terminology such as “f–k” and “blow job” would be used in classes. The AMA also wants graphic pictures of infections, such as herpes and genital warts, to be shown to warn pupils of the dangers of unprotected sex.

[…]
Victorian AMA vice-president Zoe Wainer said it was too late to begin sex education after children were sexually active, arguing it must be taught before puberty.

“We need to stop pussyfooting around with language,” Dr Wainer said. “We need to make it really clear what we’re talking about. If we’re discussing the risk of sexually transmitted infections through fellatio, we need to make sure that these young people understand we’re talking about blow jobs.

“We need to talk about what chlamydia is, how herpes is contracted, the risk factors for anal sex, vaginal sex, oral sex. We need to teach young people that some people can carry STIs without exhibiting symptoms.

“In some circumstances the use of educational images will be appropriate, for example to show older teenagers the effects of sexually transmitted infections.”

These medical minions of the left work on the assumption that parents are “unqualified” to tell their children what they need to know about sex and sexuality. Which is utter bunkum. A far bigger problem than the mechanics of coitus is the sort of crap that is taught about how to conduct non sexual relationships through the medium of popular culture. This is the sort of “summer bay” syndrome that I have sadly so often seen exhibited in young people. So often they seek to have the same level of drama in their lives as they perceive to be happening in their favourite programs never realising that the level of conflict and the constant power plays are actually heightened for dramatic purposes. Perhaps lessons about how art should imitate life rather than life imitating art would be more efficacious than explaining what a blow job is.

Getting back to sex education, the inescapable fact is that each child is ready to learn different things at different times and you can’t just administer the information as if it is some type of medical treatment. As noble as it is to try to help young people avoid STDs or unwanted pregnancy if they are not ready to know this stuff then the effort will be wasted.

Unsurprisingly I think that sex education is a job for parents who are best placed to know if and how to answer these important questions when their children ask them.

How to embarrass little old Christian ladies in the name of political correctness or the Gay agenda

While I have been enjoying a lively debate about Gay marriage here and here I have been struck by the all or nothing style of thinking on this issue by so many of my friends from the left. For the majority of them (leftists ) the entirety of the “gay agenda” has to be not only accepted but also promoted or one must be a bigot or a “homophobe”. Sadly the piece that I quote from below demonstrates precisely where such thinking leads.

Upset: Pensioners at the care home found the questionnaire intrusive

But Brighton & Hove Council complained about the home’s ‘negative response’ and argued that because the home had a Christian ethos, gay people might be deterred from applying.

It cited the ‘resistance’ to using images of elderly gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people in the home’s leaflets, saying this meant gays and lesbians ‘would not feel comfortable’ applying for a place.

The council then announced it was axeing the grant because there had been ‘limited progress’ in making the home accessible to the homosexual community.

Mr Wainwright said the charity was open to anyone with orthodox beliefs.
He said: ‘We have every reason to believe that we have given places to gay Christians, and no questions were ever asked. The council hasn’t demonstrated any discrimination on our part. We believe it is Brighton Council that is institutionally discriminatory.’

What is the most disturbing aspect of this is just how intrusive the PC social engineers actually are and how they expect everyone to prove that they are not “anti- Gay” by overt gestures of inclusiveness like their complaint that brochures for the Care home in question do not have any images of gays or lesbians, WTF? This is very much the sort of  “obligatory ethnic minority” nonsense that is ruining British television and film  taken to the nth degree. While I and most other people would like to think that we would still have the desire and the ability  to be a sexual dynamo into our dotage there is no doubt that sexuality becomes rather academic by the time you consider going into a care home.
As I see it what is happening in the UK when it comes to sexuality is simply the result of the Labour party having gone too far trying to prove that they are willing to kowtow to the champions of Queer theory. And now that Gays are allowed to call their relationships “marriage” the activists want to promote their cause in every possible societal niche, from the kindergartens to the nursing homes. What they fail to realise is that such activism may play well to the “right on” Latte sippers but the average punter just gets incensed when they here that the schools want to teach preschoolers about buggery or when retirement homes are expected to have pictures of bull dykes in zimmer frames on their leaflets.
While it is very easy for me to support the notion that all human beings are entitled have any kind of consensual sex that they please with any other adult human being (regardless of the gender combinations) I find it impossible to accept that a small group who deviate from the heterosexual norm should be dictating how the majority conduct their lives. Acceptance, and tolerance of homosexuality does not require acceptance of the entirety their agenda. Now If some one could please explain that to my pals from the left we may just avoid little old ladies here being quizzed abut their sexuality when they are embarrassed and affronted by the intrusion into their privacy by the questions.

Buggery 101 in Primary school now?

Children as young as five should be taught about gay sex, an education project has said (file picture)

Children as young as five should be taught about gay sex, an education project has said (file picture)

OK lets make one thing very clear from the outset and that is that I have no problem with adults doing what every they please with their own bodies or the bodies of other consenting adults. But I do have concerns with the obsession that certain homosexualist activists have with promoting their ” lifestyle” to primary school children. As is the case in the example cited by the Daily Mail.

Heads of the project have set themselves a goal of ‘creating primary classrooms where queer sexualities are affirmed and celebrated’.

The ambition was revealed in documents prepared for the No Outsiders project run by researchers from universities and backed with £600,000 of public money provided by the Economic and Social Research Council.

The stated purpose of the project – which is operating in 14 primary schools – is to stop bullying and prejudice aimed at homosexuals.

However, at a seminar at Exeter University tomorrow, supporters of the group will go beyond the anti-bullying agenda and discuss ‘pleasure and desire in educational contexts’.

A document prepared for the seminar and couched in convoluted academic jargon says: ‘The team is concerned to interrogate the desexualisation of children’s bodies, the negation of pleasure and desire in educational contexts, and the tendency to shy away from discussion of (sexual) bodily activity in No Outsiders project work.

‘The danger of accusations of the corruption of innocent children has led team members to make repeated claims that this project is not about sex or desire – and that it is therefore not about bodies.

‘Yet, at a very significant level, that is exactly what it is about and to deny this may have significant negative implications for children and young people.’

Some people seem to think that public schools should promote a particular view of human sexuality, a view that assumes that promiscuity and everything that can be imagined is OK. Personally I think that teaching our children about sexuality is one of those things that is primarily the role of parents and that our children should not be the focus of leftard social engineering aimed at promoting homosexuality.

Why is it that homosexualists want to go beyond acceptance of their nature, which I can appreciate is reasonable, to active promotion to homosexuality to pre-pubescent children? Sounds like grooming them for sex if you ask me and I think that they should be prosecuted for doing so.

This is really going too far Comrades

Buggery 101 required for building contracts

If ever you needed a reason to be suspicious of the leftist “equality” agenda this little story should have you very worried.

Businesses bidding for contracts with the London Development Agency, appointed by Ken Livingstone, will have to complete the questionnaire

Furious business leaders last night condemned an “intrusive” questionnaire that requires them to reveal how many gays and transsexuals they employ.

The so-called “supplier diversity development questionnaire” is sent to all bidders for contracts with the London Development Agency.

It asks about the racial origin of a firm’s employees, then about their sexual orientation.

The questions include: “Is your organisation mostly owned or led by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transperson) people?” and “What is the percentage of LGBT staff in your workforce?”

The LDA receives £400million of Government funding each year and its board is appointed by London Mayor Ken Livingstone.

It says it needs the data to monitor progress towards its goal of “maximising the diversity of its supplier base”.

But the director of a company bidding for a contract to refurbish a London fire station said: “I was dumbstruck when I saw the questionnaire.

“I looked at my dignified and proper middle-aged secretary and thought, I’m not going to ask her if she is a lesbian, let alone a transperson. The questions are intimate, intrusive and irrelevant.”

The businessman, who asked to remain anonymous, added: “It says the information will not be used to determine who wins the contract.

Daily Mail

Now it is all well and good to be concerned if an individual is discriminated against on the basis of their sexual orientation but this sort of intrusive social engineering from the Loonie Left makes me think that my flippant jokes about Buggery 101 being a compulsory part of the school curriculum would sadly be no joke at all if the likes of Ken Livingstone were to get into any positions of power here. Frankly I can see no reason at all that a would-be contractor should be required to collect or divulge such information about their employees  in order to secure contracts for any public project.

Shaking my head in sad disbelief here Comrades
