A recent video produced by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus that proclaims, “We’re coming for your children” has produced outrage and anger. But should it be taken seriously, or is it just an example of some playful (but terribly misguided) fun?

According to the SFIST website, “The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus released a magnificently funny video last week, but a barrage of threats and doxxing has forced them to change their key.”

Specifically, “The ditty is called ‘A Message From the Gay Community,’ and it’s a clever victory anthem about the gradual normalization of gay culture among the youth of America (‘even grandma likes Rupaul / And the world's getting kinder / Gen Z's gayer than Grindr’). The wingnut furor has focused entirely on two lyrics — ‘We'll convert your children’ and ‘We're coming for your children’ — which the QAnon set assumes is an open declaration of sexually exploitating minors. But a full listen to the track (lyrics here) makes it clear to any reasonable listener that the choir is talking about winning hearts and minds by being funnier, more likable, and better dressed (‘Your children will care about / Fairness and justice for others / Your children will work to convert / All their sisters and brothers’).”

So, if you were offended or concerned by this video, you’re a QAnon wingnut. As far as SFIST is concerned, there’s nothing to worry about at all. The comprehensive gay indoctrination of your kids has nothing whatsoever to do with sex or sexuality. It’s just making them nicer!

Is that, then, what it’s all about? Just helping our kids love justice and fairness?

In 1987, Michael Swift published an article in the gay magazine GCN, titled “Gay Revolutionary.” It began with this line, which, unfortunately, was often left out of conservative publications that cited it: “This essay is an outré, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.” (For more background, and for the full article, see here.)

So, the article was not intended to be a public declaration of a nefarious homosexual agenda. Rather, it was intended to be outrageous and shocking and over the top, a mocking reflection of what rightwing conservatives feared from the evil gays. All that is clear from the opening line.

But was it in any way prophetic? Here are a few lines, not taken out of context at all:

“All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.” (Have you heard of the Obergefell decision of SCOTUS in 2015?)

“If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.” (Obviously, this has not happened literally, but just think of the many penalties for “hate speech” in our society today.)

“We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens.” (How many gay love scenes appear on network and cable TV every week? And what about whole cable TV series like Queer as Folk or The L Word?)

“There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.” (Again, think of the cultural “exiling” of those who dare to oppose gay activism.)

“All churches who condemn us will be closed.” (Tell me that many gay activists would not love to see this very thing.)

As for references to our children, after the opening line, the article declared (again, as a sarcastic, outrageous statement), “We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.”

Obviously, the great majority of gay men are not sexual predators coming to sodomize our sons, which brings us back to the San Francisco gay choir video. As I wrote in a recent article, “It was about 20 years ago that a conservative commentator stated that, because the homosexual movement could not grow by reproduction, it had to grow by seduction. Understandably, this incurred the ire of gay activists, as if their main agenda was the sexual seduction of others, including children.”

But, I continued, “What this conservative commentator should have said was: ‘The homosexual movement cannot grow by biological replication, so instead, it puts its emphasis on ideological indoctrination.’ That would remain true to this day.”

And with the ideological indoctrination, there will also be sexual initiation, even if among young peers, if not among older “mentors.” But of course!

That’s why I wrote back in 1993 that the gay agenda, as reflected in signs that one of my friends saw at a large gay pride march in Chicago, included, “We want to marry and we want your boys” – again, if not sexually, then by way of indoctrination.

For the rest of my response to this gay choir video, including my 2011 poem about the LGBTQ indoctrination in our children’s schools, watch here.

Tempted and tried we're oft made to wonder why it should be thus all the day long While there are others living about us, never molested, though in the wrong When death has come and taken our loved ones, it leaves our home so lonely and dreary Then do we wonder why others prosper living so wicked year after year Farther along we'll know all about it; farther along we'll understand why Cheer up, my brother; live in the sunshine, we'll understand it all by and by Faithful till death said our loving master; a few more days to labor and wait Toils of the road will then seem as nothing as we sweep through the beautiful gates Farther along we'll know all about it... Yes, we'll understand it all by and by. ___________________________ Songwriters: Elvis Presley

Well as I didn’t create the problem I don’t have to fix it! And as I have said in previous posts I do not advocate violence toward anyone! What this post was about was pathetic satirical song sung by a pathetic bunch humans who thought it would be funny! I’m not laughing! To many people have suffered all the way around! Tongue and cheek not seeing the why of it! Free country believe what you like! Insult how you like ! How you think you can slather all your so called enlightenment all over Everyone including very innocent small children is the equivalent of abuse malpractice! Plain and simple You really have it out for little ones !!!! Hear let me bend your mind to fit my idea ,my solution for all the mental health issues that exist in human mind ... I know we don’t have a clue as to the why so let’s just call it a normal variation! You can do that and that certainly seems to be what you’ve done ! But there are billions out there that say no! I’m gonna with what God says! Sorry

Well at least you are honest about your ignorance. So, if you could ‘fix’ this problem, what would you do? Bring back the castrations? Jail these criminals? Send them to mental health institutions? Or the thing you are most likely to answer - ‘pray for them’!!!! ‘They need to be saved!!!’ Well, praying the gay away has been shown to be EXTREMELY rare. And there are many earnest and devoted lovers of Christ who just can’t seem to get rid of the gay. So please tell me, what would you do???

No silly, homosexuality is a sin according to the ancient MEN who wrote the bible!! We now know that Homosexuality is a NORMAL variation of human sexuality. We used to jail, chemically castrate, or diagnose gay people with mental illnesses. But not now. Why?? Because we are smarter now. Well, most of us are....

Homosexuality is a sin according to God He/She said it was abomination, not so good ! But the struggle of S S A I would say nothing is impossible w/ God ! Heaping shame on people is not the answer! God loves them in the midst of their journey and will walk them! I find it heart breaking how people search for the truth in their situation only to be told there is no truth only resignation So no I wouldn’t teach children to settle for less

B.W - so you would teach your children that diversity and difference in culture, race, and ethnicity is ok, but that diversity and difference in sexual orientation or gender expression is bad??
BW posted a comment · Jul 17, 2021
I would teach them to live their truth ! But not at the expense of others ! I don’t think it’s the job of the school to create or invent, or define push social or dictate norms I believe it is up to the family to train up a child in the way they should go! Introduce them to values system from their family’s schools are the absolute worst places to teach morality instead focus on math, reading, writing/keyboards leave values to the family/ church my kids are great people and not bullies! Also teach Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

B.W - so you think teaching ALL children - from a very young age - to be accepting, loving, and understanding of difference/diversity, and that there ARE minorities out there who just MAY be different than ‘the norm’ is somehow wrong and misguided??

B.W - you said ‘all children should be protected from unnecessary mishandling, indoctrination! Why should a child be set upon and put at risk! Any child at risk is one to many!’ So you are including gay kids or transgender kids in this statement? Or just ‘all’ the ‘normal’ kids??

Painting all the children of the world with a broad stroke of the brush just in case they might be gay ,gender confused and vulnerable in childhood is irresponsible and I “think” criminal in someways all children should be protected from unnecessary mishandling, indoctrination! Why should a child be set upon and put at risk! Any child at risk is one to many! This is an adult forum ! I’m not talking to children! A place to express thoughts in response to current events ! God you are high and lifted up!

B.W. - my daughter, who came out a few years ago, was one of 'those kids' sitting in a sunday school class, or youth group activity being told that 'she does not belong', and that she is 'not part of God's good plan for humanity'. She was deeply scarred back then, and continues to have deep deep issues regarding her sense of belonging, and being worthy of love and acceptance, for who she is. Before making comments like you do, think a bit first...there ARE gay children, and transgender children out there. They are NOT going away. They are however being deeply and horrifically damaged by the 'reality' you speak about....which is NOT the same as their reality.

B.W. - God does not change...you are right about that at least. That said, OUR UNDERSTANDING of God MUST change as we age, grow, mature, and go through many of the ups and downs this complex life can bring. Otherwise, what are we saying???? - that God, in all her glory can be perfectly known by us????

Gods word does not change with the times, thank you Jesus! it's not conservative, backwards, and or outdated! why do lgbtq insist everyone change to fit their idea of reality. the fact that they want indoctrination in schools is telling! children are like sponges what ever you tell them , put in front of them, they will absorb it! the question that is being asked debated is should schools be doing this ? I'm not in the minority yet. the debate is being derailed by lgbtq activists they are bulling people into silence! I pray the bullies are silenced and not the other way around ! parent need to speak up for their children and not be intimidated ! no one is advocating children who struggle with identity be mistreated in any way!

Mike Brown calls it 'LGBTQ indoctrination in our children’s schools'. In actuality, it is because gay kids exist. Transgender kids exist. They are NOT going away, nor should they ever be made to feel like they SHOULD or CAN 'change'. Yes, they may be 'different', but they belong exactly as they are. They are part of our massively vast examples of human variation and difference. Because these kids exist, they NEED TO BE represented in kid's books, movies, tv shows, and advertisements. Just as kids of different ethnic or cultural backgrounds also need to see themselves in these places. The true indoctrination is occurring in the homes and religious schools who preach the same conservative, backwards, and outdated 'values' Mike Brown loves to incessantly whine about. Time to get with the times, and start treating people who are different with respect, dignity, love, and acceptance.

This is about as serious as a Mel Brooks movie. Maybe not as funny as “Blazing Saddles,” but the point of satire remains the same: we are shocked because we are faced with our own ridiculous and baseless prejudices. “It’s twuu! It’s twuu!”

It is only called satire when people react negatively and then is forgotten yet is the truth and eventually comes true. Any prominent gay guy could say I want to F your boys then after the backlash say he was kidding and leftist allies will cover for him!
