‘Too Cute to Be Straight’: Canadian Taxpayers Fund LGBT Message for Kids

Posted on | September 5, 2017 | 4 Comments


Heterosexuality is only for ugly people — that’s the message promoted at taxpayer expense in Canadian schools, where “Too Cute to Be Straight” is among the slogans on buttons distributed to students in public schools by the Alberta GSA Network. These anti-heterosexual messages were posted to the Instagram account of the government-backed group that promotes homosexuality and transgenderism to children.

“The network is organized by the Provincial GSA Coordinator, a position within the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) at the University of Alberta,” according to the group’s web site, which “was funded in part by the Government of Alberta.”

Alberta’s education minister, David Eggen, recently said he “will consider strengthening gender diversity legislation this fall as LGBTQ advocates ask for more support in schools.” Eggen is a member of the socialist New Democratic Party that controls Alberta’s provincial government. In 2015, Eggens imposed “gender diversity guidelines to support LGBTQ youth in Alberta schools,” including secrecy policies that effectively prohibit parents from knowing whether their children are participating in such school-based programs. Parents in Alberta have protested these policies, and have criticized Alberta GSA Network for promoting sexually graphic images to children from a site called “Fruit Loop”:

The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) is paid by the Alberta Government to organize the Alberta GSA Network, intended to support a target audience that includes children ages 5 to 17 years old.
Dr. Kristopher Wells, who is a Faculty Director with iSMSS and the “driving force” behind the creation of the Alberta GSA Network, has publicly shared posts from Fruit Loop on his own social media, including a “fast-paced ad” featuring naked young people who “share an erotic kiss on a tennis court” and “are often seen embracing, rolling around on the ground together.”
Clearly he is not ignorant of the sexually graphic content of their posts. . . .
K-12 children who access GSAs are often already struggling and vulnerable. Exposure to the sexually graphic content made available through the Alberta GSA Network website puts these children at further risk of harm and victimization.
It is obvious the Ministry of Education is trusting the wrong people with the role of supporting 5 to 17-year-olds and creating “safe and caring” schools.

Former teacher Theresa Ng’s Informed Albertans blog has accused Wells of using “his social media to compare Christians to Nazis, share pictures of naked youth and publicly post private messages from concerned parents so they can be mocked by his Facebook friends.”
