- The Magazine
Below is a peek at this week’s sickening blanket of socially conservative, anti-gay rhetoric aimed at the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network and the head of President Obama‘s Safe Schools Initiative, Kevin Jennings who founded GLSEN. They’re trying to get Jennings fired and GLSEN thrown out of the school system by focusing in on a sexual education workshop held in 2000. The far-right pundits at MassResistance, GatewayPundit, FoxNews, have joined numerous nationally known conservative mouthpieces to blast these out-of-context questions and outtakes from various pieces of gay-supportive literature as “Fistgate.”
