“I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children” – LGBTQ Activist
March 14, 2015
(Left, Sason Bear Bergman, 40, formerly Sharon Jill, is a Jewish woman who “changed” into a man and then married a man.)
“I want your children [to become] like me…”
This article proves homosexual activists are intolerant. While society is willing to live and let live, these bigots, a microscopic minority, impose their norms on us. If we demur, we are “homophobic” and “bullies.”
Government, schools and corporations pay Bear Bergman to convince their people he is healthy and normal. He
creates “queer and trans cultural competency at universities, corporations, health care providers, and governmental organizations.” A founder of the first Gay/Straight Alliance, he lectures on making schools “safe” for GLBT students. He resides in Toronto with his husband J Wallace and their son Stanley.

I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I’m Not a Bit Sorry)
(abridged by henrymakow.com)
I am here to tell you: All that time I said I wasn’t indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people?
That was a lie.
All 25 years of my career as an LGBTQ activist, since the very first time as a 16-year-old I went and stood shaking and breathless in front of eleven people to talk about My Story, I have been on a consistent campaign of trying to change people’s minds about us. I want to make them like us. That is absolutely my goal. I want to make your children like people like me and my family, even if that goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion.
I want to be present in their emotional landscapes as a perfectly nice dad and writer who is married to another guy. Who used to be a girl (kind of). Who is friendly and cheerful and not scary at all, no matter what anyone says.
I would also like to know: Why are we so afraid of admitting this? I ask as a person who quailed before this accusation (and its slimy misguided undertones of pederasty) for more than two decades. That is our job: to encourage people, especially children, to think differently about a subject than they do now. To dispel the dim and dismal miasma of myths and stereotypes, and instead allow the light of truth and fairness to shine in. That’s the deal, my friends. And if we have done it — if we have come to a place where a kid has been struggling in the muck of ignorance and hatred, and helped them up and cleaned them off and sent them to play in a meadow of love or at least kindness — then baby, we have done the thing well.
At the moment, I am helping to put the finishing touches on a series of children’s books that all feature lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer kids or families. There are six books, and they are racially and ethnically diverse, filled with girls and women doing cool things, page upon page of kids enacting their own identities in joyous and peaceful ways.
There’s no bullying or shaming in these books, and no Very Special Episode identity politics — it’s just happy kids being well, solving problems, having adventures, loving and being loved. They have lesbian mums and gay dads and big extended queer chosen families; some are gender-independent. But what they all are is present. They are all in the books, on the page, on the landscape….
How do we talk to children most effectively? Through story. And so, I set about trying to make a set of children’s stories that would teach kids what I want my son and all of his schoolmates to know — that people like the people in our family (both biological and logical) are absolutely great.
It wasn’t hard for me to understand that kids who get that message, even if they never know any our LGBTQ people as far as they know, may indeed carry it into adulthood. I watch the rash of recent murders of trans women and I think — there’s nothing I can do about that now except give money and pray. I do those things. But if there’s anything I can do to get ahead of the problem, to refashion the world so that the humanity and value of trans women is made evident to more people, and sooner, in the face of cultural forces than I want to do it. I want to teach kids all about the idea of trans people like children in Nebraska read books about the ocean: even if you’ve never seen it, it’s still a lovely thing that exists in the world, and you will get to enjoy it one day, if you’re lucky.
That’s what I want kids to know about lesbian, gay, bi, queer, and trans people — that we exist, that we’re perfectly fine and often really excellent, and that even if you don’t know any now you will before too long. I want them to know that we’re absolutely as worthwhile and worthy of love and respect as anyone, and that if you’re kind to us and behave yourself well there’s a better than even chance you can get an invitation to brunch. I want kids to know this even if their parents’ or community’s interpretation of their religious tenets is that we’re awful. I would be happy — delighted, overjoyed I tell you — to cause those children to disagree with their families on the subject of LGBTQ people.
If that makes me an indoctrinator, I accept it. Let me be honest — I am not even a little bit sorry.

Henry,Sometimes I have to ask myself if there is something wrong with me, am I the normal one, or am I beyond help for feeling this outraged at things like this?
VARIETY magazine pumping up Sally Field’s new movie HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS, about a sixty something grandma who has a ‘crush’ on a thirty something male. This is supposed to be funny stuff, I can’t for the life of me find any humor in this Henry.. I remember trying to watch Betty White’s new show where she stops young men on the street with ‘sexual inuendo’. I could not laugh, I wanted to die of embarrassement, I wanted to puke. I have not watched Betty White since.
Now we have Sally Field, a grandmother in real life, who is going to expect me to laugh at her ‘crush’ on a boy who is the same age as my real son, in his thirties.
I suppose this is all just typical Hollywood liberal behavior, but honestly, I am so embarrassed for Sally Field’s real-life grandchildren that I can’t wrap my brain around whatever possessed this actress to want to play a perverted grandmother who has sexual fantasies about young men, then proceeds to sexually molest them in her mind.
Watching the trailer to this movie made me physically ill.
When does the perversion stop in Hollywood?
I am REPULSED.

I find it frightening to see the spread of this culture, it seem no escaping this. Christian and Muslims should respond to this lady by launching children story books, talking about gender identities according to faith.

Regarding the article on wanting to indoctrinate our children. NO THANKS! Gender Confusion is a mental disease, God Created man and woman as two parts of the whole, so that the branch of humanity can keep reproducing (pro-creation).
When a male or female discontinue their branch that is the death of that branch of the human tree.
God gives many examples of his Tree-Mend-Us principals, as He is the tree of life. Why must some people promote death, not passing on the mans seed though another woman? This is known as a being a “mamser” (death of the next generation, the terminus, end of the line etc.).
Personally I do not care when people who are gender confused, can do what they want in the closet I do not Judge them. But when you come after My children then you have crossed the line and there Will be a fight.
Please get help before you destroy many others, as you have yourself.

This is the new world order. It isn’t something that is coming in the future, we have been living in it for years. Likewise, I somewhat believe that the antichrist may be manifested spiritually in these times, rather than as a physical person. The bible seems to communicate that the spirit of antichrist is the denial of Christ as the one true Son of God, and it also described him as a deceiver.
The amount of deception, temptation, confusion and total darkness in the world today supports the theory that his evil spirit rules the world.
There really is no hope for these people confused into the homosexual movement, they are incredibly sick and they cannot be helped. Not that it isn’t possible to help them, but help is denied them. The entire western model is built around accepting their sickness as normal. In Ontario there is a crazy women politician who wants to deny them help even more by banning conversion therapy.
It is hard not to feel bad for these sick people, especially those in the ‘trans’ community. Who ruin their lives and bodies through hormones, and (God forbid) surgery. It is like the crystal meth of homosexuality. The people who deny them help, and call this normal are criminals and need to be eradicated.
The only hope for this world would be for a massive revolution and restoration of sound thinking, good living, true beauty, morality etc. That will only come through a miracle. Even the head of the Catholic Church (which could and should of been a bastion of resistance against this anti-Christ world order) is appearing to be possibly an imposter.
In his power, he could sound the alarm and wake millions up to the fact that the world is sick. But instead he says, ‘Who am I to judge’, cursing these people to remain sick instead of providing any hope of healing.

This is why I am finding being a stay at home mom so valuable. It is an inoculation against this disease. This is a quiet and loving battle moms need to fight on a daily basis.
BTW, when I worked at a hospital system before quitting work, we changed ALL of our health screening questions to be “inclusive” toward this community. This meant, in triage, nurses asking an elderly lady who had perhaps had a fainting spell, what gender she considered herself to be.
