Citizens’ rights advocate threatens education ministry with human rights case over ‘slurs’
VICTORIA, Feb. 27, 2012 (CultureGuard) — A citizens’ rights advocacy group, Culture Guard, has asked Education Minister George Abbott to ban words it says demean and incite hatred against students, parents and other stakeholders who oppose having the homosexual political agenda propagandized in schools.
The offensive words include “homophobia”, “homophobe”, “homophobic” and “heterosexist”.
“The words are just made-up propaganda words,” says Culture Guard president Kari Simpson. “They may sound pseudo-medical or pseudo-psychological, but they aren’t found in any recognized medical, psychological or psychiatric dictionaries.
“Their only purpose is propaganda: once the sex activists hang a hateful label on parents or others who don’t want children brainwashed in school, they can more easily persuade the public, the media, and politicians not to listen to fact-based arguments for protecting students from political propaganda.”
In a letter to Abbott, Mrs. Simpson cites the up-coming “Pink Shirt Day”, which will be observed in many BC schools, as an ideal time for the minister to ban the use of such “bully” words in official documents and programs.
“Failure to stand against this anti-democratic strategy, which denies civil Canadians rights that are explicitly protected within the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, will result in a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal,” her letter states.
Simpson notes that many homosexual practices are provable vectors for diseases which are at epidemic proportions among homosexuals, and which cost the public billions of dollars—but are “100% preventable” by behaviour change.
Under the guise of “anti-bullying”, sex activist campaigns seek to “celebrate” in schools (quoting a recent BCTF graphic, handed out at a conference where teachers were coached on how to implement the “teachers’ guide” Making Space)
One example cited was a report published by a provincially-funded community health organization that serve Vancouver’s homosexual community, which stated that throat cancer caused by sexual practices common among homosexual men is now a greater threat than lung cancer from smoking.
Another web-site funded by the government gives kids “how-to” information on “fisting”—a physically dangerous practice common among homosexuals. And her letter stated that a pro-gay, Drag Queen sex activist who “sponsors” a northern BC school’s “Gay-Straight Alliance” club gave the same kind of information to students.

Re: Eradication of the Slurs: Homophobe, Homophobia, Homophobic, Heterosexism, Heterosexist
Attention Mr. Minister:
The opportunity is before us to make “Pink Shirt Day” truly meaningful—to convince students to end the use of all slurs, including hateful, harmful, and demeaning “bully” words like “homophobe”, “homophobia”, “homophobic” and “heterosexist”—which are all invented propaganda words. Although they sound pseudo-medical and pseudo-psychological, they are not to be found in any recognized medical, psychological or psychiatric dictionaries.
As you are aware, words like these are verbal weapons, used by some radical teachers and sex activists against students or their parents (and others) who hold constitutionally-protected views and opinions about homosexuality, sexual promiscuity and other defined or yet-to-be-defined sexual identities. These words are typically used by sex activists to demean and promote contempt for those who seek to have a mature, informed and long-overdue discussion about the growing and costly implications—to both our health-care and to our social services—associated with homosexuality and sexual promiscuity.
It is long past time to eradicate the use of such contemptuous labels. And when official documents and/or statements make use of them, it gives official sanction to a fascist strategy of co-opting authority to silence dissenting opinions.
Failure to stand against this anti-democratic strategy, which denies civil Canadians rights that are explicitly protected within the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, will result in a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal.
I trust you are aware of the growing and troubling numbers, among those 25 years of age and under, relating to transmission and proliferation of sexually-transmitted diseases. As Education Minister, you have a duty to inform students, for their protection, about the serious implications and costs to health and social services that are a direct result of dangerous and unhealthy sexual practices. I, like most Canadians, support the right of others to engage in relationships of their choosing; but the factual reality is that some of these practices are now costing me, and other Canadians, billions upon billions of dollars in health-care and other related costs. This is where it becomes my business, and that of other Canadians, to start questioning the irresponsible behaviours of individuals that are over-burdening our social services. It is also where I and other Canadians, including our elected representatives, must look critically at the purveyors of false and/or misleading information, and how this propaganda is spreading through our civil society and contributing to goals contrary to those mandated by the School Act, specifically:
WHEREAS it is the goal of a democratic society to ensure that all its members receive an education that enables them to become literate, personally fulfilled and publicly useful, thereby increasing the strength and contributions to the health and stability of that society;
AND WHEREAS the purpose of the British Columbia school system is to enable all learners to become literate, to develop their individual potential and to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to contribute to a healthy, democratic and pluralistic society and a prosperous and sustainable economy;
. [Emphases mine]
I was recently engaged in an exchange of correspondence with a man who has contracted AIDS. This individual’s sexual practices included sodomy. I trust you are aware, as BC’s Education Minister, that in Canada, the category of men having sex with men (“MSM”) is vastly over-represented in the new infection statistics from the Centres for Disease Control. MSM is, in fact, the primary vector in North America for a number of costly sexually transmitted diseases.
This individual, in addition to all the medical costs to tax-payers related to his treatment, is also collecting two government pensions, including a federal disability pension. He is also receiving a government subsidy for housing because of his 100% preventable disease. He likes to live comfortably, so one of his recent accommodations costs $1,800.00 per month. He shares this with his “buddy”—another man collecting the same pensions, due to his own AIDS status. He also advised me that he expects hard-working Canadians to pay for “all his expenses.”
I trust that, as Education Minister, you are aware that among the homosexual male population, throat cancer caused by common practices among that group is now more likely than cancer caused by smoking! Here is one warning that a provincially-funded community health organization called Health Initiative for Men, which, in addition to creating hard-core homosexual porn with tax-payers’ money, also provides health advice to homosexual men, the caution states:
Too Much of A Good Thing Can Make You Sick
The ‘good thing’ in this case being oral sex. Yes boys, a new research finding has officially stated that giving too much head is more likely to cause throat cancer than smoking! Stating the obvious; we love giving our partner’s penis and ass some loving, perhaps more so than our straight counterparts, and with more ‘partners’ at that. This means then that the gay population is at higher risk of getting throat cancer, especially when you consider the fact that the more people you perform oral sex on, the greater the odds of you contracting an oral infection which leads to the cancer.
Then we have the provincially funded youth resource “Planet Ahead” which, aided by “Luci Lubricant” and “Condom man”, is invited into schools to alter/form the “values” of 12-15 year olds. Like government-funded Planned Parenthood (which changed its name to Options for Sexual Health after the link between Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, and Adolf Hitler was exposed, along with her racist advocacy of “eliminating weeds from the human garden”), these groups promote to students the liberty to freely “express themselves” in any sexual manner they wish.
“Won’t get Weird”, a youth-oriented web-site funded in part by we tax-payers, and operated by Options for Sexual Health/Planned Parenthood, gives kids “important” information, such as “giving blow jobs with braces on”, while making mock of parents.
Another government funded site called “Spiderbytes” gives information to teenagers on “fisting”—how-to, etc. This information on fisting parallels information given to a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club at a public school in northern BC by its “drag queen” sponsor.
One alarming aspect of all this sex talk is that the reality of the financial costs and health hazards associated with irresponsible and unnatural sexual conduct and/or behaviours is utterly absent from the discussion—and there is no opportunity for debate. It’s all one-sided propaganda… and lies.
Respected BC Court of Appeal judge, Justice Mary Southin, addressing the issues of promoting homosexuality in the public education system, wrote:
When there is a sea-change in the accepted wisdom of a society, those who have adhered to the attitudes of the past, what I call the “old wisdom”, in a very short space of time may find themselves denigrated by adherents of the “new wisdom”.
The slurs used by adherents of the so-called “new wisdom” have been shown to be factually foolish; what is more, they wilfully endanger the health and well-being of our children and youth. Further, the monetary costs to our society by “celebrating” medically unsafe sexual practices are prohibitive.
Defaming and denigrating those whose wisdom and insight has stood the test of time—and continues, provably, to do so—must not be tolerated. As Minister of Education, you will also be culpable for promoting hate and contempt, if you tolerate your subordinates embedding the language of hate within Ministry of Education statements and policies. These slurs of hostility and belittlement, designed to silence anyone who would dare to initiate pertinent, fact-based discussion of important and serious matters relating to sexual practices, must cease.
Here is one of many ironic examples: in the Ministry of Education’s Safe Caring and Orderly Schools directive, schools are required to incorporate a number of policies and practices designed to “protect” all students—i.e., to teach, model and encourage socially responsible behaviours that contribute to the school community, solve problems in peaceful ways, value diversity, defend human rights, and assume responsibility, in partnership with the wider community, for resolving critical safety concerns.
This looks like a good directive—until one reads on and sees that your Ministry believes it is OK to single out those who—for religious, cultural, moral, medical and other common-sense motives—want to challenge the propaganda being published within the schools by politically-driven sex-activist teachers. And here’s where your Ministry starts to use demeaning slurs:
…work together to better understand issues such as bullying,
harassment and intimidation, racism, sexism and
Linking this invented propaganda/slur to “harassment” and “racism” is a further insult to people whose opposition to homosexual propaganda in the schools is based upon valid medical and economic criteria, and has nothing whatsoever to do with “hate”.
You exacerbate the problem by asserting—as factual—propaganda published by self-identified homosexual and political groups like GALE (now known as Pride Education Network), and by allowing its use as “appropriate resources”. Resources like Challenging Homophobia are political, and incorporate hateful words and slurs designed to bully, demean and silence fact-based opposition to their writers’ political agendas.
Because these materials are so clearly political—in some cases acknowledged as such by their authoring groups—they have absolutely no place within our schools!
I have been appalled at the many examples I now have seen that demonstrate the cultivation of hate within our schools; newly-recruited homosexual “allies” use despicable bullying tactics to target youth, parents and other stakeholders who might dare to demand a factual and truthful account of important issues relating to homosexuality and other aberrant and unsafe sexual practices.
I recently confronted the Chair of the Vancouver School Board with these facts, after witnessing the hatred and contempt demonstrated by some students who made presentations under the guise of “questions” to the Board at two recent meetings. I am delighted to report that Ms. Bacchus subsequently refrained from using the slurs referred to herein, at the next VSB meeting. I have, for your convenience, enclosed a copy of my recent correspondence to Ms. Bacchus.
With the controversial “Pink Shirt Day” fast approaching— controversial because its original agenda of opposing all bullying has been hi-jacked by homosexual activists and the BCTF—I fervently hope you will embrace the true spirit of that day by refraining from using any slurs. Further, I request that you write to me forthwith, affirming your willingness to:
1) Eradicate from the Ministry of Education’s policies and/or directives any use of the slurs referred to herein;
2) Write to all Boards of Education, instructing them to prohibit the use of the said slurs in any policy or program.
I hope this matter can be resolved quickly, as failure to do so will certainly result in a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal. I believe the documented evidence will be overwhelming as to the degree of hatred and contempt being fostered in our schools by allowing these slurs to be treated as “acceptable”. They are not.
I trust that you will act quickly to resolve this troubling situation. I remain in my willingness to meet with you and brief you on the issues related to the BCTF and the political agenda of sex activists within BC schools.

Re: Hateful & Contemptuous Slurs
Attention Ms. Bacchus:
As you are aware, I attended the last meeting of the Vancouver School Board on January 16, 2012. The meeting was also attended by a number of concerned parents, students and several homosexual activists and homosexual activist teachers: teachers who belong to overtly political groups like Pride Net.
I was disappointed and offended to see you allow hateful and contemptuous slurs being used that night: slurs made by trustees, teachers, students and PAC representatives. The terms “homophobe”, “homophobic” and “homophobia” are well-known hateful words, typically rooted in bigotry or ignorance and used to target, demean and bully into silence and compliance individuals and/or groups opposed to the public dissemination of false and propagandist information related to homosexuality and other allegedly “fluid” sexual determinations.
These same slurs are standard verbal weapons used by sex activists against individuals and/or groups that oppose the “celebration” of medically unsafe sexual practices like sodomy, and other associated sexual practices that are physically harmful and cost individuals their lives and their health—and which heavily burden our tax-funded healthcare system and other social services with obscene costs that are, for the most part, 100% preventable.
The groups targeted by the sex activists include members of the various faith communities (whose beliefs are protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms); medical and mental health professionals; politicians; and informed Canadians—all of whom are increasingly appalled at both the misinformation being disseminated by their public education system, and by the abuse of their tax dollars by individuals who engage in risky and unhealthy sexual practices, and then expect the next generation to pay for the medical and societal expenses associated with the consequences of their sexual behaviour.
As a trustee, Ms. Bacchus, you are duty-bound— by your own policies, and by law—to ensure that an environment without discrimination is cultivated within the Vancouver School District. Your lack of leadership and willful acquiesce to the bully tactics that played out that evening were nothing short of disgraceful; and perhaps only trumped by the ignorance displayed by students who spoke — students who proved only that the VSB has been providing platforms for sex activists who are demonstrably ignorant about issues involving homosexuality; but are well-trained in parroting the talking points and slurs used relentlessly by homosexual and other sex activists. Hardly something to take “pride” in.
I trust tonight’s meeting will be conducted in a more respectful and lawful manner. I believe it would be prudent for you to ensure that hateful slurs like “homophobe”, “homophobic” “homophobia” and “heterosexist” are prohibited. These words create a false impression of medical or psychological authority—but they do not appear in any recognized medical or psychological dictionaries. They are merely propaganda labels used to dismiss legitimate arguments used by opponents of the “gay agenda”. I am requesting that at the outset of tonight’s meeting, you openly declare those terms, and other similar words, to be inappropriate; and that you apologize to those in attendance for having allowed such vile and contemptuous slurs during the last meeting.
Be further advised that I have also asked the Vancouver Police to attend, to protect concerned parents who will be there. At the last VSB meeting, a videographer for Culture Guard was assaulted by one of the pro-sex activists. Your participation, by allowing nonsensical, divisive tactics like the politically-driven censure of Trustees Woo and Denike, fuelled some of the sex activists’ penchant for violence. I trust you will ensure that individuals videotaping the aggressive conduct of sex activist teachers, trustees and VSB facilitators will not have to endure further physical assault. I also trust that you will not give preferential treatment to sex activist teachers like Ms. Dumont, a member of the sex activist political organization Pride Education Network, as you did at the last public meeting. Ms. Dumont’s request not to be video-recorded at a public meeting is at best silly; she is featured on the PrideNet website, picture and all.
I remain in my willingness to meet with you and brief you on matters related to the Out In Schools program and other propaganda like Gender Spectrum—another pile of propagandist nonsense put out by the BCTF.
It is obvious from the last meeting that you and a few of the other trustees appear to be ignorant of the facts relating to the Out In Schools program. This is most troubling, as you refused my request to appear before the Board at the last meeting—an appearance that would have informed you about the Out In Schools program. Are you afraid of the facts? Do you fear public condemnation when parents find out about a program that you endorse, but claim to be ignorant of? Yes, I have the video from the last meeting which confirms both these statements.
In closing, Ms. Bacchus, be advised that I will accept your invitation to meet if you have the leadership skills and courage to extend one. I will do this, I admit, not because I have any measure of respect for you—quite the contrary—but because the students involved deserve to have their best interests protected, and their parents deserve to know the truth.
