West Virginia local newspaper denounces “book banning” 

West Virginia local newspaper denounces “book banning” – but then censors quotes from books in MassResistance op-ed submitted in rebuttal.

Newspaper editor defends censoring the quotes!

More absurd hypocrisy and shallow journalism from today’s media. But MassResistance fights back!

(Caution: Graphic language.)

May 24, 2023


The local left-leaning newspaper printed our rebuttal to their attack on local parents – but left out the quotes that we included from the obscene books.

Parents across the country struggle against schools and libraries to keep sexually explicit and pornographic books from being made available to children and teens.

But at the same time, left-leaning local newspapers routinely publish inflammatory editorials labeling the parents as “book banners” who are attempting to “violate the First Amendment” stop children’s “freedom to read.”

These dishonest articles purposefully misrepresent what the books actually are by not including the sickening obscene content. The intent is to portray the parents as ignorant extremists to the rest of the community.

But MassResistance isn’t putting up with that!

Fighting the battle in Wood County, WV

For the last two years, we have been working with pro-family activists in Wood County, WV. They are fighting to remove the obscene children’s books from the country library and schools.

It’s been a tough fight. The librarian has fought hard to keep the books in. Rabid local LGBT groups are pressuring local officials to ignore the complaints. The district attorney refuses to file charges for violating the local obscenity statutes.

Local newspaper attacks parents

Since the pro-family activists were not giving up, the Left dredged up their next tactic.

On May 13, the county’s local newspaper, the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, published a vicious op-ed article attacking the parents titled, “School of Thought: Book banning, censorship solve nothing.” Among other things, it named MassResistance as an organization helping parents “work around the First Amendment to execute their agendas.”

The article was purportedly written by a high school girl. But the talking points came from left-wing organizations pushing obscene books and LGBT indoctrination. Among other things, it includes anti-parent tropes, a false interpretation of the First Amendment, the claim that “a small group of people” are trying to “censor” the entire community, and the idea that it’s up to parents to follow their children around the public library (or school library) to keep them away from porn.

But as usual, the girl’s article does not describe the obscenity that the parents are outraged about. Instead, she talks vaguely about “explicit themes” that might be “uncomfortable reading” for some people. As a result, “sensible” people should rightly question what the fuss is about. The column was infuriatingly dishonest.

Newspaper agrees to print rebuttal article from MassResistance

A local conservative college professor immediately alerted us to this attack on the pro-family parents in town. “We’re at war here,” he told us.

We contacted the newspaper. Since MassResistance is named in the article, the editor agreed to let Arthur Schaper, our national Field Director, submit an op-ed in rebuttal.

Arthur submitted this article, “MassResistance is pushing for Pornography Bans, not Book Bans.” The article focused on five issues.

  1. To inform the readers, Arthur included specific quotes from some of the obscene materials, including the books Flamer and Gender Queer, as well as mentioning obscene elements in other objectionable materials. These quotes are very powerful in explaining what is really at stake.
  2. Parents should not have to protect their children from pornography in public libraries and school classrooms.
  3. No one is banning books from the community. Parents don’t want pornography available to children in public schools and public libraries. Anyone is free to go to Amazon and purchase these materials on their own if they so choose.
  4. Explicit images and pornography cause long-term damage to children. Sixteen states have declared that pornography is a public health crisis.
  5. The Supreme Court has determined that removing obscenity is not unconstitutional.

Newspaper prints the MassResistance article – but removes the quotes from the obscene books!

On May 20, the newspaper published Arthur’s op-ed. However, the editor refused to include the quotes from the books, and instead just left a blank space.

Here’s what Arthur’s original article includes:

For example, this obscene passage (one of many) appears in the frequently challenged (and graphic) Gender Queer:

“I can’t wait to have your c*ck in my mouth. I’m going to give you the blow job of your life. Then I want you inside me.”

Here’s a passage from Flamer:

“I recognize that this doesn’t sound very sexy. But this is the reality of butt sex. With a little forethought I will make your sex sexier. This is a dude-dude pairing. It can get tricky.”

That book also depicts boys engaging in a “game” in which they masturbate into bottles, and whoever cannot “come” has to drink the contents of the bottle. Other books direct minors to seek sex with adults and normalize dangerous, destructive behaviors.

Here’s what the newspaper published:

For example, this obscene passage (one of many) appears in the frequently challenged (and graphic) “Gender Queer:”

[EDITOR’S NOTE: Schaper’s original work at this point quotes excerpts from and gives descriptions of passages in both “Gender Queer” and “Flamer,” which have been removed.]

Other books direct minors to seek sex with adults and normalize dangerous, destructive behaviors.

Thus, the newspaper’s readers were still not told exactly what the parents were outraged about.

Editor makes dishonest excuses on why the quotes were removed

Immediately after printing the MassResistance article, the editor, Christina Meyer, published an extremely offensive and accusative “explanation” of why she removed the quotes from the books.

A word for my readers who wonder why I fell into the trap laid by the submitter of a guest op-ed this weekend. The technique of including excerpts from a challenged book with the full knowledge that the editor of a newspaper will need to remove those excerpts – because a newspaper is widely distributed (and an editor has no way of knowing who might pick up and read a newspaper) – is frequently used.

It is meant as a way to “prove” that the chosen excerpts are, indeed, obscene and the books containing them should be removed from libraries, etc. But, of course, no such proof is made.

My belief is that it is not a double standard to remove such excerpts from an item that will be read by thousands of people who choose to read the newspaper this weekend, without prior knowledge of some of its content. To my mind this does not conflict with the belief that the same (or other) material should be available to a person who seeks it out and knows what they are about to read, if they so choose.

That’s not mentioning possible copyright issues as well. [MR NOTE: This line was subsequently removed from the web edition.]

Yes, parents who are worried about what their children are consuming should monitor (to the best of their ability) what their children are reading. Parents and kids should have the freedom to have that discussion and make the decision that is best for them.

Christina Myers, editor

This is dishonest and offensive on many levels. First, Myers that she made the ridiculous claim that including the obscene quotes was a “trap” because Arthur allegedly “knew” that the newspaper would remove them. Of course that’s not true.

She said she can’t publish the quotes because “thousesands of people will read this without prior knowledge of some of its content.” But that is exactly the point we are making. If it’s fine for minor children to read, why isn’t it fine for the adults in the community to see?

She claimed that there were “possible copyright issues” involved. When we showed her the federal laws regarding that, she was forced to admit she was wrong and actually removed that line from the web version of the article.

And finally she blames the parents for not policing their children because “parents and kids should have the freedom” to consume pornography in the public library.

Final thoughts

The frightening part is that this woman actually believes this. Children can be scarred horribly for life by pornography and she has no problem with it. It’s hard for most people to comprehend the perverted mindset of so many people in our schools, libraries, government, corporations, and the media.

We will continue to help parents fight back!

Parents confront Associate Library Director over the obscene library books for children

What she said in the 45-minute meeting will shock you.

She had no problem with those books and defended their inclusion.

Completely disconnected from reality: These library people clearly believe that obscenity and pornography “help” children.

See video of the meeting below. [Caution: Graphic content]

May 9, 2023


The parents wanted answers from the library official (left).

Part 1 of a series: Parents usually can only testify before a group of public officials at open meetings – and they rarely get answers. In this series you will see what officials say when parents come and question them individually – and they can’t hide.

On April 5, 2023, seven MassResistance parents came unannounced to the offices of the Marshall Public Library in Pocatello, Idaho. They wanted answers about the pornographic books for children in the library.


Going into the library’s administrative offices.

They spoke with the Associate Library Director, Trina Bonman. (The Library Director was out of town.) The meeting, which the parents openly videoed, lasted about 45 minutes. They read to her the disgusting, pornographic passages and showed her the pictures from books available for children.

The way Bonman defended the books – and the systems for bringing them in and keeping them there – were shocking and eye-opening. She had clearly mastered the pro-LGBT American Library Association’s talking points for dealing with anyone who complains. But the parents were ready for that. They asked the tough questions and demanded answers.

Nevertheless, it was obvious that the library supported making homosexual and heterosexual pornography – as well as “transgender” ideology – available to children in the community. There also seems to be a depraved interest in exposing children and teenagers to homosexual sex acts.

You can watch the meeting here. It certainly is an education! Note: Some of the language (from the books) is graphic and disturbing:

*** VIDEO: *** Idaho parents confront library official over obscene children’s books (46 min 36 sec)

Here are some highlights of the meeting:

The meeting started right out with questions about the obscene books.

One of the parents asked about the book “Gender Queer.” Bonman said it had received a formal challenge, and it had been decided to keep that book on the shelves.

The parents then held up the book and described some passages from it:

You can see one boy sucking the dick of another boy. And another boy is sucking a strap-on penis of a girl. Drawings of two men masturbating. A discussion between a boy and his sister about putting her finger into her vagina and then licking it – “So you’ve never tasted yourself? Of course I have.”

Another passage: “I can’t wait to have your cock in my mouth. I’m going to give you the blow job of your life. Then I want you inside me.”

The letter regarding that, signed by Bonman, said the library’s committee determined that “the book had literary merit, and that it contained a viewpoint that is under-represented.”

(It’s crystal clear that the “challenge” process is completely rigged against the parents. The library brings in the books, and also decides whether to keep them.)

The parents asked for the list of people on the committee that made this decision. Bonman refused to tell them. “It’s an administrative detail that we’re not making public. It’s part of our internal procedures,” she said.

Another parent read to Bonman from a different book, “Flamer”:

I recognize that this doesn’t sound very sexy. But this is the reality of butt sex. With a little forethought I will make your sex sexier. This is a dude-dude pairing. It can get tricky. At the end of the day, if you want to have anal sex, one of you is going to have to go top. The one who puts his willie in and the other bottom, the one who gets the willie up his bum, gay men seem to spend a lot of time talking about this. It’s actually not a massive deal, as most guys will happily switch roles depending on their mood. Although there are guys who prefer to be strictly top or bottom, is the top the man and the bottom the woman?

Bonman answered that this book hasn’t been challenged, so there’s been no determination about it. (In other words, until there’s a formal “challenge” they simply don’t care.)


Parent (left) shows Bonman sexually explicit illustrations from one of the children’s books.

A parent asked if there had ever been a book that had been successfully challenged. Yes, said Bonman. It was an old children’s book with “antiquated” (i.e., politically incorrect) pictures and descriptions.

Opinion versus “professional standards”

The parents asked Bonman what she personally thinks of these books. “Are you OK with this being there for kids to read? Would you have your own child read them?”

She answered sternly, “My personal opinion doesn’t matter. This is a professional situation. We make professional judgments.” (That is a stock ALA talking point used to avoid having to discuss it.)

She continued, “We don’t pick books based on our personal opinions. We use professional judgment and professional standards to purchase books that are meant for the entire community.”

The parents pressed her on that. What exactly are these “professional standards”? Where are they written down? Can we see them?

Bonman stumbled and finally admitted, ““They’re not written out. They’re not formal.” She then attempted to connect it to the “collection policy” but it didn’t really fit.

A parent answered, “If you’ve got standards, then you need to have them where everyone can read them if they choose to. Because otherwise it’s strictly opinion.”

Is this pornography?

When the parents accused the library of stocking pornography, Bonman stated, “The library does not have pornography. I haven’t seen pornographic images in this building. These books are not legally pornography.”

So the parents asked her if she knew the legal definition of pornography. After all, that is the crux of the matter here. She paused and admitted that she didn’t really know it. And apparently, no one at the library knows the legal definition.

Instead, she told the parents, “Our city legal department has taken a look at these materials and they are not considered legally obscene.” However, she didn’t say which materials those were. (And according to other information we received, the city legal department has not looked at any materials from the library. We will check that out!)

One of the mothers informed Bonman that Idaho state law is quite clear about obscene materials that are harmful to minors. She then read part of the statute out loud:

“Harmful to minors” includes in its meaning one or both of the following:
(a)  The quality of any material or of any performance or of any description or representation, in whatever form, of nudity, sexual conduct, sexual excitement, or sado-masochistic abuse, when it:
(1)  appeals to the prurient interest of minors as judged by the average person, applying contemporary community standards; …

Bonman simply looked at her and didn’t comment.


Parent (right) reads the Idaho obscenity statute to Bonman.

Does our library have materials harmful to children?

This simple topic revealed everything a parent needs to know about the mindset of the people running their library.

A few parents asked, “Do you think that the library has books that are harmful to children?” Bonman answered, “I think ‘harmful to children’ is a really hard term to describe.”

They brought up community standards. She replied, “How do you define community standards? Whose standards are you talking about?”

One parent made the (reasonable) accusation, “You’re pushing an agenda to have children do something that isn’t natural.”  Bonman answered, “We don’t push any agenda. We don’t push any materials on to minors. We have things available on our shelves. But we don’t promote them to anyone. “

Bonman added this classic ALA talking point:

We have people who have gone to library school here and they teach collection development. We want a balanced collection for all ages, sensibilities, and all segments of the community. We want to have a balanced collection. Not everything in the library is going to be for every person who comes into the library.

This is basically a well-crafted excuse for bringing in pornography. What possible “segments of the community” want this destructive material? Perverts? Pedophiles?

And she added this equally offensive ALA talking point: “It’s up to the parents to decide what their children read. They should use their own family values and family standards.” In other words, it’s an excuse for having a library that’s not safe for children to go there unsupervised.

A parent asked, “Why not just have wholesome books, not controversial books?” Her answer: “We can’t make judgments of books based on some people’s opinions.”


Final thoughts

Normal people are sickened when they see or read the material presented. But the library staffers not only are not repulsed in any way, they see it as somehow good for both children and adults.  It’s mind-boggling.

Exposure to pornography and homosexual imagery can harm children in horrible ways for the rest of their lives. This has been extensively documented. Among other things, they can become sexually dysfunctional, sexual predators, and develop pornography addictions.

Parents should not have to confront librarians to stop this. These materials should not be there in the first place. It was once universally understood that people who expose children to obscenity should not be allowed to be employed in schools or libraries. In fact, if it were not for the narrow exemption for schools and libraries in Idaho state law, these officials would likely be in jail.

The late Dr. Judith Reisman, who wrote several books on Kinsey’s work and his effect on society, concluded that these people actually despise children.

This is just a part of what the pornography industry and the related LGBT movement are doing to America. As we know, these books are being aggressively promoted by LGBT-related publishers and the pro-LGBT American Library Association, and defended by groups like the ACLU.

Sadly, there’s more to come in this series of reports!

MassResistance helps bring three important pro-family legislative victories in Montana and North Dakota

Aiding legislators against the Left’s anti-family lobbying machine

May 18, 2023

ALT TEXT Montana State Rep. Bob Phalen describes the need for his bill to remove the exemptions to the obscenity laws for schools and libraries.

Across the country, conservative state legislators are working to pass pro-family bills to protect children from pornography and the aggressive LGBT agenda in their schools, libraries, and towns.

But even in “red” states, pro-family lawmakers invariably are up against a well-organized and well-funded lobbying force of library organizations, LGBT groups, public unions, and others. They bring well-crafted talking points and pressure tactics. And these groups galvanize their activists to testify and browbeat legislators. It can be overwhelming.

But MassResistance helps legislators counter that. We’ve been in the trenches for over 20 years helping pass good bills and stopping bad anti-family bills. We provide research, talking points, expert witnesses, and more. We alert people to testify, call, and email. Often that’s what it takes to bring bills across the finish line!

Here are three recent victories in Montana and North Dakota:

Montana: Removing the obscenity exemption for schools and libraries

Decades ago, states across the country added exemptions for schools and libraries to their laws that outlawed providing obscene materials to minors. The exemption was intended to allow school administrators and librarians to include legitimate works of art, etc., in their curriculum materials and collections. Unfortunately, degenerate school officials and librarians across the country are now using that loophole to push hardcore pornography on children. Montana is closing that loophole, and hopefully other states will follow.

Montana bill HB 234, now signed by the governor, amended the state obscenity law to remove the exemption that allowed schools and libraries to make pornography and other obscene materials available to minors.

Passing HB 234 was a rough road. Numerous powerful leftist and LGBT groups swarmed in to stop the bill. These included the Montana Library Association, Montana Federation of Public Employees, the Montana (LGBT) Human Rights Network, the Montana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the ACLU of Montana, Forward Montana, League of Women Voters of Montana, and Montanans Organized for Education – and lots of LGBT activists. They even brought in a “gay” eighth-grader to testify against the bill.

As a result of that pressure, after its first House committee hearing, the committee reinstated the exemption for libraries and museums (though not for schools), and considerably weakened the rest of the bill.

But throughout the legislative process, Montana MassResistance worked closely with the bill’s lead sponsor, Rep. Bob Phalen, and provided talking points, legal opinions, and calls to action. Members of our Montana group called key legislators to assure the bill’s passage. Our field director, Arthur Schaper, also testified in favor of the bill.

When the bill got into the Senate, our side made a huge impression. During the Senate committee hearings, the chairman had to cut off proponents’ testimony on several occasions (due to their reading aloud vulgar and profane passages from a few of the books at issue), stating it is “important to maintain decorum.”

The Senate subsequently reversed the damage the bill had suffered in the House. The prohibitions against obscenity available to minors in public libraries and museums were restored. The bill received a number of amendments to ensure that those disseminating obscenity in libraries and schools were specifically held responsible. The bill was greatly improved and received widespread support from House Reps and State Senators, though school and library officials are already trying to re-interpret parts of it.

Governor Greg Gianforte signed the bill into law on May 10, 2023.

Montana: Keep kids away from drag shows and drag queens

HB 359 was introduced to keep kids away from drag shows and drag queens.

Our Montana MassResistance team assisted with passage of this legislation. Activists called in to several lawmakers throughout the process. The legislation faced bad amendments in the State Senate, in which a RINO senator from Billings, MT (a liberal city with a growing LGBT activist presence) removed the references to “drag queens.” But the House rejected those amendments.

A conference committee meeting to resolve the differences brought back the terms “drag queen” and “drag story hour” – and also articulated the definition of a “sexual oriented business or act.” The legislation then passed both houses. It currently is waiting for Gov. Gianforte’s signature, and most observers believe he will sign it.

ALT TEXT A pro-LGBT Montana State Rep (a woman wearing men’s clothes) tries unsuccessfully to persuade her colleagues to reject the bill to prohibit minors from attending drag shows.

North Dakota: Ban mutilating ‘sex change’ operations on minors

HB 1254, bans mutilating “sex-change” operations on minors.

Arthur Schaper, our Field Director, worked closely with State Rep Bill Tveit, who authored the bill – and who made a point of saying he was grateful for our help. We provided talking points and other information to help convince his colleagues to support the bill. We also provided key expert witnesses to testify at the public hearings.

North Dakota, like a number of Midwest states, has large Republican majorities, but in too many cases they do not vote like conservatives. That’s because many of these Republicans are actually Democrats who have switched parties just to compete, get elected, and work in the state legislature. This has become an added problem which we help overcome.

After the legislature passed it, there was still work to get it signed by the governor. Networking with local and national activists, MassResistance connected with key legislators and urged the governor to sign this bill. Governor Doug Burgum has been establishing himself as a pro-business centrist, which means that in many cases he would rather not fight for the cultural issues. But thankfully, he signed this very important bill into law.

Final Reflection

MassResistance continues to make a difference in states across the country. We are working with many pro-family lawmakers who want to fight and win the culture war, but who often do not have the requisite research, expert witnesses, or resources to convince their colleagues to help pass these key bills.

****Mass Resistance Special Report****

Boston Children’s Hospital Gender Clinic – Here’s what’s really happening to children and teenagers!

Documenting chemical castration, irreversible surgeries, the people behind it, and much more.

Videos and names the hospital tried to hide.

A ghoulish ideology gone out of control!

May 1, 2023

ALT TEXT From a December 2011 Boston Globe article. These two boys were identical twins – until Boston Children’s Hospital got ahold of them. In this photo, one twin (on the right) was 5’6″ tall and weighed 115 pounds. But after “gender” procedures, the other was only 5’1″ and weighed 100 pounds.

Read our full 70-page Special Report HERE
(Caution: Some very disturbing images and descriptions.)

People are becoming aware that there are now dozens of children’s hospital clinics and hundreds of independent clinics across the U.S. (and many more around the world) that practice so-called “gender medicine” on young children and teenagers. (In addition, many – if not most – mental health professionals have climbed on board with the transgender ideology.)

It has become a multi-billion dollar business. These procedures often cause permanent disfiguration, mutilation, castration, and lifelong medical and mental health problems. It is all experimental.

Recently, several states have introduced legislation to ban this gruesome practice. Such bans are fiercely fought by the powerful LGBT lobby, the hospital industry, corporate America, and the mainstream media. They say this is “gender-affirming medical care” and must be allowed. They attack those who oppose these procedures as bigots.

What is really happening to children? We have prepared a special report to explain it to you.

The epicenter of this has been at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH). Opening in 2007 under Dr. Norman Spack, it was the pioneer “gender clinic” in the U.S.

From the beginning, MassResistance raised the alarm about Dr. Spack and his frightening new gender clinic. In May, 2008, Fox News got wind of our reports. Fox’s Megyn Kelly invited Brian Camenker of MassResistance to their New York headquarters for this interview:

VIDEO: Fox News Interviews MassResistance 5/21/08 (3 min 30 sec)

Boston Children’s Hospital’s gender clinic has grown incredibly since then and has been imitated in children’s hospitals across the U.S.

Amy Contrada, the head of our MassResistance research team, has covered Dr. Spack closely since before the clinic officially opened. She has now released this report revealing the ghoulish details that are often being hidden, but which people need to know.

This report details the so-called “gender affirming” medical treatments and surgeries that are happening at Boston Children’s Hospital:  

  • Social transitioning guidance
  • Puberty blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones for boys and girls
  • Tucking genitals (boys), binding breasts (girls)
  • Double mastectomies (breast removal) on girls, called “chest reconstruction” (ages 15+)
  • Creating female-like breasts on boys , called “breast augmentation”
  • Using a girl’s genital tissue, forearm and thigh tissue to create a fake penis (ages 18+)
  • Removing a boy’s penis and creating a “vaginal cavity” (now ages 18+; formerly age 17+)
  • “Gender affirming hysterectomy” and removal of vagina on females (ages 18+)
  • Vocal cord/Adam’s apple surgery on males to sound like females
  • “Facial harmonization”: Surgeries to make facial features appear female or male

This report includes photos and descriptions, many of which may be difficult to view.

Note that even where BCH limits some of the surgeries for ages 18 or older, many of their younger patients are already on course to continue with those – encouraged to do so by their “caring” doctors at the clinic.

The incriminating videos

In recent years BCH made a series of nine short (mostly 1-2 minutes long) video clips describing (in cheerfully delivered clinical terms) some of the grisly things their gender clinic does. After the videos were seen and publicized by some parents and there was widespread public outcry, BCH removed them. But we have recovered them and include them in this report.

Here are two of them:

This video is titled “Surgical transition: Who is eligible?” The answer: A 15-year-old girl can have her breasts removed if she’s sure she “feels like” a male. Note that the person speaking has a wide scar on the neck below where the Adam’s apple would be. This is likely a male who “transitioned” to female.

VIDEO: Who is eligible for surgical “transition”? (48 sec)


This absurd BCH video has a psychologist saying that children sometimes know they’re transgender from the time they’re born. Thus, the BCH gender clinic begins seeing young children when they are between 2-3 years old to 9 years old! And they coach parents that they must “support” the child’s transgender feelings, claiming (falsely) that otherwise the child will become depressed and suicidal.

VIDEO: Young children know they’re transgender (1 min 28 sec)

Other videos deal with breast binding, “tucking” a penis on a boy, creating a penis on a girl (18+), and hysterectomies for girls (18+).

We have also linked a few speeches by the doctors describing the “positive” aspects of their gender care philosophy. These include a 2014 speech by Dr. Spack and a brief video by the co-founder of the BCH gender clinic, Dr. David Diamond (who is now starting a similar clinic at the U. of Rochester Medical Center).

Who are the people behind all this?

When seeing this, one thinks of the infamous Nazi doctors during the 1930s and early 1940s. The doctors and others at the BCH gender clinic are actually quite proud of being part of this clinic, and (until recently), their names were listed publicly. We include in our report the archived BCH pages naming them.

Note that we have included the list of the Trustees of Boston Children’s Hospital. They are obviously aware of what they are supporting.

And it goes far beyond that. You’ll read about the appalling World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), which is mentioned in one of the videos above. It’s an international organization of transgender activists and their allies – many of whom are neither medical doctors nor medical researchers – that gives cover to hospitals and clinics that administer harmful treatments to minors (and adults), by providing (loose and evolving) “guidance.”

Final thoughts

Probably the most terrifying part of this report (and particularly the BCH videos) is the clinical, matter-of-fact way that these doctors approach this macabre “medical care.” It’s not medicine. It’s madness – part of the culture of death.

If anyone doubts that America’s medical profession has become destructive and – and even demonic – this report should open your eyes.

Fox News criticizes MassResistance for so-called “aggressive techniques”

Even worse: Fox now considers discredited Southern Poverty Law Center to be a legitimate news source! Trafficking in lies & distortions in their attacks.

But in the past, we were often featured on Fox news programs.

March 10, 2023


When Florida’s governor confronted “Drag Queen” shows for children, Fox News used it as an excuse to attack MassResistance for our principled activism.

As the Fox News network continues to drift leftward (and pro-LGBT), MassResistance has gotten under their skin with our uncompromising pro-family activism!

Last month, the Fox News website published an article about how Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was revoking the liquor license of a non-profit organization in Orlando for holding sexually provocative Drag Queen shows with children present.


Most of the article was reasonably unbiased and straightforward. (Fox is still willing to be concerned about Drag Queens being with children.) But the article concluded with something very odd. They put in a 2019 photo from California of a Drag Queen named “Pickle” reading to children in a public library. The photo’s caption was a nasty and dishonest attack on MassResistance for our efforts to help parents fight back against these shows. It had nothing to do with the content of the report.


The Fox article’s caption of this photo is:

Drag queen “Pickle” reads from a book during the Drag Queen Story Hour program at the West Valley Regional Branch Library on July 26, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. Drag Queen Story Hour is a program featuring drag queens reading stories to children at libraries, schools, and bookstores in cities across the nation. MassResistance, which has targeted Drag Queen Story Hour program is several cities, uses aggressive techniques to disrupt and generate conflict at city counsel [sic] meetings, pro-Trump demonstrations and anti-LGBTQ protests. Some far-right Christian groups support the organization while the Southern Poverty Law Center considers them a hate group. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images) (David McNew/Getty Images)

This is a typical leftist attack with complete disregard for the facts. The truth is:

  • MassResistance does not attempt to “disrupt and generate conflict” at government meetings or events. That is exactly what the Left does. We protest peacefully and speak the truth during scheduled comment periods. The Left can’t stand hearing the truth.
  • We certainly have never disrupted or generated conflict at pro-Trump demonstrations or “anti-LGBTQ protests.” Why would we? That is illogical, and a complete fabrication.
  • Fox News writes that “Some far-right groups support the organization.” Actually, a broad range of groups have said they admire our work. The term “far-right” is only a reflection of Fox’s leftist sensibilities, not mainstream America.

The Southern Poverty Law Center

But the most troubling and offensive part is Fox’s use of the odious Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as if it were a legitimate news source. The SPLC is itself a hate group and has been discredited across the spectrum as being a scam operation that targets conservatives. They gratuitously label hundreds of prominent conservative groups and Christian organizations as “hate groups” including: Liberty Counsel, American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Illinois Family Association, and many more, as well as MassResistance. The SPLC’s odious behavior is well-documented. Fox News’ use of the SPLC says more about the degradation of their news organization than anything else.

Just who is “Pickle”? MassResistance did some research.

What kind of man dresses in women’s clothes, calls himself “Pickle,” and arranges to read gay-themed books to young children? Fox News wasn’t interested. They obviously think this is normal behavior.

Back in 2019 our Texas MassResistance leader, Tracy Shannon, looked through Pickle’s social media posts. She found lots of photos of him in “drag” with his arms around children; in various stages of undress; and posing with other homosexual men.


“Pickle” in his women’s clothes (center) posing with his “friends.”

Pickle wrote that when reading books to children, “Usually we stick to the sort of, distinctly overt queer themes. We figure, you know, we got them in the room may as well hit the nail over the head.” All this reflects a disturbed person who should be nowhere near children.

In the old days, Fox loved us!

Before Fox began to cave on the LGBT issue, they considered us an important news source on this assault on children. For about a dozen years starting in the late 1990s, MassResistance’s Brian Camenker and others appeared on various Fox news shows to discuss the LGBT agenda in the schools, including: Hannity and Colmes, Fox and Friends, The O’Reilly Factor, America’s Newsroom with Megyn Kelly, and others.   

For example, in 2008 when we exposed the Boston Children’s Hospital “gender clinic” for children, Megyn Kelly interviewed Camenker at Fox’s headquarters in New York. And she was clearly pretty upset over it:

VIDEO: Fox News interviews MassResistance 5/21/2008 (3 min 30 sec)

(MassResistance was, in fact, the first pro-family organization to expose the looming transgender assault on children starting in 2007 on our radio show.) Sadly, Fox News simply let the subject drop after Kelly’s 2008 interview with Camenker.

In 2013, our friend Peter LaBarbera documented the further decline of Fox News on the LGBT issue. And it’s continued since then.

Final thoughts

It’s more important than ever for conservatives to hold the line, despite attacks from all directions.

Many people who don’t watch Fox News regularly haven’t realized how far the organization has slid on the “culture war” issues. Rupert Murdoch’s liberal sons, who now control Fox, are certainly the major source of that, as is the general direction of the people in the media. Even Tucker Carlson has a “gay” producer, so his show never critically looks at LGBT issues, except for the transgender assault on children topic that’s currently in vogue among conservatives.

Fox News is still willing to appease their viewers by tolerating some conservative activists as on-air guests. But like the Left, they view serious, no-compromise pro-family activist organizations with hostility. Conservatives (especially those who are invited to appear on Fox News) need to push back. For a start, Fox News needs to be pressured to retract their libelous parroting of the SPLC’s “hate group” accusation.

LGBT radicals resort to violence in fiery protest against conservative speaker

by Staff Reports April 19, 2023

Last night, a mob of LGBT activists gathered outside the University of Pittsburgh to protest Michael Knowles’ speech on “Transgenderism and Womanhood.” Reports suggest that nearly 250 radical activists showed up, holding signs with hateful messages, making it clear that they want Knowles to be removed from public life.

The protestors were so incensed by Knowles’ speech that they set a fire in the street and burned an effigy of Knowles in effigy, making it clear that they have no respect for free speech or differing opinions.

Fearing that the situation might get out of hand, Pittsburgh Police declared the protest a “public safety emergency” and warned people to stay away from the area. Minutes later, an explosion was heard near the building, causing chaos and sending protesters into a frenzy.

According to reports, the explosion was caused by a combination of a smoke bomb and a firework. While no injuries were reported, it is clear that these radical activists are willing to use violence to silence anyone who has a different opinion than their own.

It’s time that we put an end to this type of hateful and aggressive behavior. These protesters are not interested in tolerance or understanding, but rather, they are interested in bullying anyone who dares to disagree with them. It’s time for us to stand up for free speech, even if it means standing against the radical left.

Now we add a HOMOSAURUS to the Thesaurus

President Biden continues to champion sexual deviancy, now granting hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to reach the Hispanic community with the cause, and an advocate for truth says Americans must stop allowing the Left to gain ground.

Through the National Endowment for the Arts, a taxpayer-funded independent agency of the federal government that offers support and funding for projects exhibiting artistic excellence, the Biden administration is giving Washington State University $350,000 to translate a thesaurus of crude and graphic LGBTQ+ words and phrases into Spanish. The project description bills the lexicon as a resource for “libraries, archives, museums, and other heritage institutions.”

LifeSiteNews relays that the “Homosaurus” is described as a “robust and cutting-edge thesaurus that advances the discoverability of LGBTQ+ resources and information.”

With most areas of Anglo culture conquered, Peter Labarbera of Americans for Truth says the Hispanic community seems to be the new target.


“The Left has won half its battles by just redefining terms,” he points out. “Sodomy … first became homosexuality, but then when it became gay, then it became just a trait.”

LaBarbera laments that efforts like this fuel society’s descent into a dystopian degeneracy that would have been unthinkable just five years ago.

“When you hear … biological women calling themselves pregnant men because they’re gender confused, that’s just social insanity,” he submits.

Meanwhile, no one is allowed to freely speak out for moral sanity and/or biblical ethics.

“We’re calling people transphobes if they object to a minor girl having her healthy breasts surgically removed to have a flat chest like a boy,” the advocate for truth observes.

Though he is encouraged to see the public pushing back against Bud Light’s marketing partnership with a grown man who identifies as a preteen girl, what troubles LaBarbera is few seem to be taking a stand “on issues that are more important than beer.”

“You can’t keep giving ground,” he concludes.

Drag Queens Interrupt Kirk Cameron’s Storytime Reading in Ark.

Kirk Cameron’s Saturday storytime event for families and children in Fayetteville, Arkansas was reportedly interrupted by a group of drag queens and LGBTQ activists.

Cameron, an actor, author, and devout Christian, has been traveling to various public libraries around America to share messages of faith, family, and country, as part of the “Freedom Island Tour” — named for the series of illustrated children’s books published by Brave Books, a conservative publisher.

However, the Fayetteville event was marred by drag queens showing up at the library and intentionally blocking families and children from Cameron’s reading Saturday morning, while also making distracting remarks during the show, according to Brave Books.

“The small group of protesters, which included some grown men wearing silly makeup, dressed in skirts and heels, pretending to be women, listened to the reading of a kids’ book about God’s view of gender called, ‘Elephants Are Not Birds,‘” Cameron told Fox News Digital, via email.

Cameron continued: “At the close of this sweet and funny story of a singing elephant named Kevin who was tricked by a vulture named ‘Culture’ into thinking he might be a bird, the reader then asked the 300 children, ‘Do you think elephants can be birds, even if they strap on silly wings and a beak?'”

After that, “in unison, and with great laughter, all 300 children confessed with gusto, No!'” wrote Cameron.

The former “Growing Pains” star also said, “I felt sad for the men in skirts. As it is written, ‘You have taught the little children to praise you perfectly. May their example shame and silence your enemies’ (Psalm 8:2).”

Brave Books, which helped organize the event, also told Fox News Digital that some 500 “enthusiastic” parents, grandparents, and children attended the event — which had “protesters present” both inside and outside the library.

According to Brave Books, “some men dressed as women were wearing colorful outfits. Some had signs claiming we were spreading a hateful message.”

The controversial messaging apparently involved a reference to the content of Cameron’s children’s book, “As You Grow,” which teaches kids about love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and self-control.

According to Trent Talbot, the CEO and founder of Brave Books, “We’ve been saying that the left is preying on our children, and they sheepishly try to gaslight us — calling us conspiracy theorists.”

Talbot continued: “On Friday in Fayetteville, a group of drag queens dressed in demonic outfits showed up to a children’s book reading filled with conservative and Christian parents and their children. … All these drag queens wanted was to force disturbing views on these innocent kids. The left’s predatory behavior is just another conspiracy theory exposed as a fact.”

Queer School Board Member Demands Tolerance After Terminating Contract with Christian Teachers

A queer activist has spoken out at a school board meeting to demand tolerance, despite showing a massive intolerance of Christians herself.

Tamillia Valenzuela, who describes herself as a “disabled, neurodivergent Queer Black Latina,” is a school board member of the Washington Elementary School District, which serves north-central Phoenix.

She has already made headlines for her involvement in the board’s decision to formally cancel its contract with Arizona Christian University that permitted students at the university to gain experience as teachers in the district.

This was due to the fact that the university held fast to the biblical account of sex and gender, therefore rejecting the LGBT agenda, and Valenzuela claimed that they made students feel unsafe.

Now, she is again making news for speaking out about the issue at a school board meeting, where, despite showing a stark intolerance for Christian student-teachers, she demanded an abundance of tolerance — but not before hurling more criticism.

She accused the Christian student teachers of perpetuating “bullying” and “hatred”, and then claimed that they were responsible for the mental health issues faced by many students.

Throughout her diatribe, Valenzuela kept referencing the importance of tolerance and acceptance, particularly when it came to the LGBT crowd.

Valenzuela then bashed the faith of the students by invoking Christ and twisting His words.

“People who are truly rooted within Christ, okay, know what Christ’s teachings were,” she said, “and it was love, it was acceptance.”

Valenzuela and her cat ears are emblematic of a common leftist misconception about Jesus. The left loves to claim that Christ taught only about “love” and “tolerance” and not about the very real need to avoid sin and repent.

While Christ did indeed teach us to love our neighbors, he never taught us about “tolerance.”

In fact, the word “tolerance” is used with a negative connotation in the Bible. In Revelations 2:20, it says, “Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.”

Here, it says that the worst sins of the Christians in Thyatria were not actively taking part in the sins of Jezebel, but rather that they stood by and tolerated her sins and false teachings, doing absolutely nothing to stop her.

This is not something that many Christians realize: We have a moral obligation to fight back against these evils.

It is not enough to simply not take an active part in them ourselves, if we let others preach these false teachings which brings others into evil, then we will have to answer for not doing what we were called to do.

Also, Christ taught love, and part of love means keeping others safe from sin. If you truly love someone, you want to save them from the snare of sin, not let them self-destruct by indulging and tolerating their sins.

Valenzuela simply does not understand the real teachings of Christ; she thinks that Christ preached “tolerance” when in reality, the Bible does not in any way teach the far left perversion of “tolerance.”

Christ tolerated sinners, but that was because he wanted them to leave their sinful lives behind and follow him. He did not tolerate them merely so that they could continue to wallow in sin.

Perhaps if Valenzuela took some time to seriously study the Christian faith, she would realize that Christianity teaches that in order to truly love others, we must be willing to help them out of sin.

MassResistance helps pro-family activists in Kyrgyzstan fight back against U.S. funding of transgender agenda

US State Department to fund Kyrgyzstan transgender organization’s mission to break down country’s morality on LGBT issues

MassResistance helps pro-family groups around the world!

February 26, 2023


This Kyrgyzstan pro-family leader is pleased to be part of the MassResistance team!

Kyrgyzstan is a country in central Asia located between China and Kazakhstan. It was part of the U.S.S.R. before declaring its independence in 1991. It is approximately 90% Muslim and very conservative on family issues.


When the U.S. government recently announced that it is funding a toxic transgender agenda in that country, pro-family activists reached out to MassResistance for help.


In 2019, Kyrgyzstan’s pro-family movement began publicly protesting the LGBT agenda coming into their country. It had become clear that much of the LGBT infiltration was being pushed through foreign NGOs (non-governmental organizations) and foreign non-profits. The Kyrgyzstan government was simply allowing it to happen, and people were outraged.


In 2019, this activist testified before Parliament against an NGO pushing the LGBT agenda and corrupting children that was becoming connected with the government.


In 2020, this activist testified against NGOs “coming in to teach the Kyrgyz how to live.”


On April 15, 2021, the Kyrgyzstan pro-family movement organized a march in the capital city for pro-family values and “against the LGBT indoctrination agenda.”


Speakers at the April 15, 2021 pro-family march.

In January 2021, the leader of Kyrgyzstan’s major pro-family movement connected with MassResistance via Facebook. He and Arthur Schaper, our national Field Director, began discussing various strategies for promoting the natural family and countering the international anti-family LGBT agenda. The Kyrgyzstan leader also began re-posting MassResistance articles on their Kyrgyzstan website.

U.S. State Dept. grant for transgender organization in Kyrgyzstan

In December 2022, the Kyrgyzstan pro-family movement became aware of a U.S. State Department grant to Kyrgyz Indigo, an organization promoting transgenderism in that country. Although it is only $30,000, that is a significant sum in that part of the world.

As Breitbart reportedKyrgyz Indigo has broad plans to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality and transgenderism and transform the entire country’s culture. The plans include proselytizing the country’s schoolchildren, making LGBT prostitution easier, implementing “hate speech” and broad anti-discrimination laws, and other radical goals.

Fighting back

The pro-family people were shocked and incensed at this news. They asked MassResistance how they should confront this. It was decided to communicate a strong message to the top government officials. Since they knew some members of the Parliament, it was decided to create a video which would be presented to the Kyrgyzstan president, Sadyr Japarov.

They asked Arthur to create the message and present it via video. They felt that since Arthur is an American, he would have more credibility in countering the U.S. State Department.

On February 15, 2023, Arthur did a quick initial version of the video and sent it to the Kyrgyzstan people to suggest any changes. They liked it so much that they decided to use that version! It became the official message.

VIDEO: Arthur Schaper’s message to the President of Kyrgyzstan (5 min 25 sec)

They posted it on their website with the translation into the Kyrgyz language (though English is also widely used there) and a photo of Arthur. The pro-family groups are now working with their allies in the Parliament to make sure that the President sees this video – and responds!


The post on Kyrgyzstan pro-family website: “The director of the American organization MassResistance (a national group defending family values), Arthur Shaper, made a video message to the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, Sadyr Japarov, asking him to confront the attempts to promote LGBT ideology in Kyrgyzstan.”

Final thoughts

It’s infuriating (given all the fiscal problems here in America) that we are sending money around the world to push the homosexual and transgender agendas in other countries – against the wishes of the majority of people there.

Right now, it’s the fanatical Biden State Department doing this, However, over the past decade it’s been a bipartisan effort. Although our State Department has never been a friend of pro-family Americans, this recent surge goes back to at least 2012 when Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, radicalized the department.

MassResistance has reported over the years on this problem:

2012 (Obama): US State Dept to force gay agenda on foreign nations!
Secretary Clinton announced that the U.S. was launching a fund for global pro-LGBT propaganda and training around the world.

2018 (Trump): Secretary of State Pompeo Disappoints Pro-Family Conservatives
In May 2018, Secretary Pompeo issued an official statement, “On the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.” Then, he proclaimed June to be “LGBTI Pride Month” at the State Dept.

2021 (Biden): Jamaican citizens protest at US Embassy, demand removal of offensive “LGBT Pride” flag.
For years, US embassies around the world have flown LGBT rainbow flags in support of local “pride” celebrations.

No matter what, MassResistance will keep up the fight!
