more on the "Safe School Czar's" admirations

So, we know that Kevin Jennings made a serious mis-step when he was a teacher. Lets talk about who he admires, Harry Hay.

Harry Hay started the Mattachine Society in 1948, the Radical Faeries and advocated for NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association. He had to leave the Communist party because they do not allow homosexuals.

The Mattachine Society is not a big issue. It is a gay rights activist groups which is no longer in existence.

The Radical Faeries, where do I start. Here is a quote from a member
"Being radically (at the root) decentralist and anti-authoritarian, we have no leaders. Each Faerie is divine and speaks for himself. We join together with each other in mutual aid and love for play, work, self-discovery and nurturing. To be a Faerie is an act of self-definition."

Wikipedia says:
Originally consisting of gay men, the movement has spread throughout the world over the past decades since, in tandem with the larger gay rights movement, challenging commercialization and patriarchal aspects of modern LGBT life while celebrating pagan constructs and rituals.[2] Radical Faeries today also embody a wide range of genders and sexual orientations, and most sanctuaries are open to all.[3] They adapt rural living and environmentally sustainable concepts to modern technologies as part of creative expression.[2] Radical Faerie communities are generally inspired by aboriginal, native or traditional spiritualities, especially those that incorporate genderqueer sensibilities.[4]

Faeries tend to be fiercely independent, anti-establishment and community-focused.[2]

The Faeries were a contributing influence to John Cameron Mitchell's film Shortbus.[5]

I did not see any picture that show minors, nor did their site show any parades of them half naked. Though with the issues with authority and the over willingness to accept and be non-judgmental I have to question what all they do accept.

The third group that garnered Mr. Hay's attention was NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association). Once you get away from the acronym and read the full name, I think that says it all.

Now let's go back to Obama who says
"Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself."
Now apply it to Kevin Jennings
