Homos can’t get anything past the eagle-eyed watchdogs at Concerned Women for America. They see signs of the “homosexual agenda” everywhere, especially in cartoon characters: Tinky Winky, SpongeBob, Buster the bunny and now Barbie.
On Dec. 30, Robert H. Knight, director of CWFA’s Culture & Family Institute, outed Barbie as a molded plastic tool of the homosexual movement. The reason? A poll on the Barbie Web site that asked kids for their gender and gave them three options: boy, girl and “I don’t know.”
This little trick, said Knight, is right out of the “homosexual agenda playbook” (a book only right-wing nuts have a copy of). Barbie is clearly promoting gender confusion. She wants little kids to be transgender.
Funny how Knight is accusing Barbie of promoting gender confusion, yet HE’S a director in an organization called Concerned WOMEN for America.
But never mind that. Knight calls gender confusion a “big component of the homosexual activist agenda.”
“If you look at acronyms they use for their movement, it used to be L and G: lesbian and gay, then it was LGB: lesbian, gay and bisexual. Now it’s LGBT: lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. And some of them add Q to it, for when they’re talking about youth: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. In other words, any kid who’s not sure about who he is, he’s fair game to try to persuade to have same-sex sex.”
Wow, that’s quite the deductive leap. Just wait until he sees what we have in store for our ever-growing acronym next: LGBTQAVM (that’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, animal, vegetable and mineral to you, buddy). But then, it’s all-sex-all-the-time with these people. They’re obsessed.
Needless to say, I’m not the only one who’s finding it hard to take CWFA’s shouts of “there’s a Barbie in the closet” seriously.
“We’re getting the Tinky Winky treatment here,” Knight complained in a Jan. 5, 2006 follow-up segment on, “where if you make a comment about something involving a children’s program or children’s product you get ridiculed.”
You don’t say?
According to the follow-up report, Mattel has changed the poll answer from “I don’t know” to “I don’t want to say.” This isn’t good enough for Knight.
“It still puts into the mind of children that this is something that’s obscure, or maybe there’s some doubt as to their gender identity,” he said.
But that’s not all Barbie is being attacked for. According to Knight, Barbie is “steering girls away from the idea of womanhood as, predominantly in terms of Christians, serving the Lord, getting married, having kids, building a home. You don’t see any of that with Barbie. It’s all about things. So Barbie’s suspect to begin with, but once they start throwing this transgender question at little girls, they’ve really crossed the line.”
Really? This is when they’ve crossed the line? It wasn’t with the Earring Magic Ken doll (
