Sinister Plot

 

To hear some people talk, you'd get the impression that LGBTQ people have some kind of hidden agenda or ulterior motive. You might think LGBTQ people are up to no good, that they have nefarious and sinister intentions and that they mean to bring down the fabric of our society. Based on the language some folks use, you might come to the conclusion that LGBTQ people are plotting all manner of evil schemes. So what is this hidden gay agenda? What kind of conspiracy are those sneaky gay people plotting?

 



The bias in speech is evident when you hear someone refer to an LGBTQ person as an "admitted homosexual or an avowed homosexual or a practicing homosexual". Instead, the preferred verbiage is "openly gay." You may even hear people refer to the "homosexual lifestyle." Such rhetoric might suggest that being a lesbian or gay man is somehow shameful or inherently secretive. Coming out of the closet and being open about being gay should be seen as a positive and courageous act.

You will sometimes hear people talk about the Homosexual Agenda or the Gay Agenda. Instead, the conversation should be about the Gay Rights Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, or the Human Rights Movement.

"Lesbian and gay movement" accurately describes the historical effort to achieve understanding and equal treatment for gays and lesbians. The real gay agenda concerns itself with equality. There is nothing evil or sinister about that.

Notions of a "homosexual agenda" or a "gay agenda" are rhetorical inventions of anti-gay extremists seeking to portray as sinister the lesbian and gay civil rights movement.

You might hear people talk in alarmist tones about how the gay agenda is corrupting society and destroying the traditional family structure. They speak in terms of conspiracy. They label LGBTQ people and their supporters as subversive.

 



And you will sometimes hear rhetoric that uses terms like, "Special Rights" instead of "Equal Rights, Equal Protection, and Human Rights." It really is about "equal rights" not "special rights." Anti-gay extremists frequently characterize civil rights and equal protection of the law for LGBTQ Americans as "special rights" in an attempt to energize opposition to anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws. In reality, LGBTQ people just want what everybody else has.

Gay Propaganda

 

The gay agenda (or homosexual agenda) is a term introduced by sectors of the religious right (primarily in the United States) as a disparaging way to describe the advocacy of cultural acceptance and normalization of non-heterosexual orientations and relationships. The term refers to efforts to change government policies and laws on LGBTQ rights-related issues. Additionally, it has been used by social conservatives and others to describe alleged goals of LGBTQ rights activists, such as disseminating "homosexual propaganda" and recruiting heterosexuals into what conservatives term a "homosexual lifestyle."

Proponents of the "gay agenda" believe that there is an evil, concerted, international plot to intentionally weaken heterosexuals by feminizing men and maculating women. According to these people, this goal is achieved by forcing society to see gay people as everyday human beings, thereby "normalizing" homosexuality.

 


Anti-LGBTQ factions are busy spreading lies, myths, and mis-information intended to promote the notion of a homosexual agenda...

 

--Gays and lesbians are recruiting young people

--Gay men molest children
--Same-sex parents harm children

--Gay people are taking over the public schools

--Gay people are infiltrating the media with TV shows that make the gay lifestyle seem normal

--Gay people want to destroy traditional family values

--Gay people want special rights
--Hate crime laws will lead to the jailing of pastors who criticize homosexuality

--Hate crimes laws will lead to the legalization of practices like bestiality
--Allowing gay people to serve openly will damage the armed forces
--Gay people are more prone to be mentally ill and to abuse drugs and alcohol

--Gay people are not really born gay

 

 

There is a renewed effort by certain conservative groups to attack what they term as "gay propaganda." For the purpose of safeguarding children and preserving traditional family values, these groups are insisting that laws be passed to protect children from being exposed to homosexuality (content presenting homosexuality as being a norm in society) under the argument that it contradicts traditional family values. They oppose the distribution of propaganda of non-traditional sexual relationships among minors.

Margaret Court Attacks Gay Agenda

 

Apparently, if you are a woman involved in the sport of tennis, you might end up with a nasty case of lesbianism. Yes, it turns out that tennis, a supposedly respectable sport, is basically a girl-on-girl lovefest. So says Australian tennis legend Margaret Court.

 

Court recently took it upon herself to warn the world that "tennis is full of lesbians." What’s more, they’re the militant sort, intent on spreading sapphism willy-nilly. The 74-year-old noted that, back when she was playing professionally, there were only a couple of gay players, but those players led young players into parties and other activities and converted them to the gay lifestyle.

 

But don’t hate the players, hate the gays. Because, as Court pointed out, they’re everywhere, perpetually pushing their Gay Agenda. The former world tennis No 1 explained, for example, that an Australian program tackling homophobic bullying in schools is actually the work of a sinister “gay lobby” trying to "get into the minds of children." Basically, said Court, it’s just like Hitler and communism.

Court’s statements have caused considerable controversy. Martina Navratilova, for example, has led demands for the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne to be renamed in response.

Examples in the Media

 

David Icke, writer, journalist, broadcaster, professional conspiracy theorist, and "full time investigator into who and what is really controlling the world," has stated publicly that, "The homosexual agenda is incompatible with the traditions of western civilization."

Before he died in 2007, Jerry Falwell warned everyone: "If we do not act now, homosexuals will own America. If you and I do not speak up now, this homosexual steamroller will literally crush all decent men, women, and children who get in its way. And our nation will pay a terrible price."

 

Conservative columnist Joshua Rhett Miller offered his opinion in February 2010 on legislation being considered by the US Congress. He said, "The gay discrimination bill currently before congress will stifle free speech and advance the homosexual agenda." He went on to explain that the bill that was intended to prohibit discrimination in public schools based on sexual orientation and gender identity could even lead to "homosexual indoctrination in the nation's classrooms."

 


Alan Sears, President of the Alliance Defending Freedom, has stated, "The goals of those who would impose same-sex marriage on this country are nothing short of subversive. In order to validate their sexual choices, activists in support of homosexual behavior will stop at nothing, even if it means destroying marriage, redefining the family, outlawing all opposition as hate speech, and undermining our precious heritage of government."

The editorial/opinion page in a local newspaper posted the following comment: "The gay agenda has to stop, particularly in the schools. My grandson came home from school and said they were talking about homo sapiens in science class. We need to put a stop to this."

Whose Agenda?

If the gay agenda were like a church, we'd come to your door to recruit you. We'd put our literature in hotels. We'd print "In Gay We Trust" on money. And gay bars wouldn't be taxed.  So, tell us more about the gay agenda.

Homosexual Agenda: Rhetoric of the Opposition

In the US, the term "gay agenda" was first used in public discourse in 1992 when the Family Research Council, an American conservative religious group, released a video series called The Gay Agenda as part of a pack of materials campaigning on homosexual issues and the "hidden gay agenda". In the same year the Oregon Citizens Alliance used this video as part of their campaign for Ballot Measure 9 to amend the Oregon Constitution to prevent what the OCA called "special rights" for gays, lesbians, and bisexuals.

The term is applied to efforts to change government policies and laws on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues, such as, for example, same-sex marriage and civil unions, LGBTQ adoption, recognizing sexual orientation as a protected civil rights minority classification, LGBTQ military participation, inclusion of LGBTQ history and themes in public education, introduction of anti-bullying legislation to protect LGBTQ minors. The term is also used against non-governmental campaigns and individual actions that increase visibility and cultural acceptance of LGBTQ people, relationships, and identities. The term has also been used by some social conservatives to describe alleged goals of LGBTQ rights activists, such as recruiting and brainwashing heterosexuals into what they term a "homosexual lifestyle."

The idea of a homosexual agenda is also used by some religious critics of LGBTQ rights in conjunction with a putative ideology they refer to as "homosexualism" (as opposed to the accepted synonym for homosexuality), using the term "homosexualists" to describe people who seek to advance LGBTQ emancipation. The use of "homosexualist" in this way first appeared in 1995 in Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams' book The Pink Swastika, to refer to any person, homosexual or not, who actively promotes homosexuality as morally and socially equivalent to heterosexuality as a basis for social policy.
