CosmoGirl! editors have become “conversant with queer issues,” according to a pro-lesbian website.
In an article entitled CosmoGirl! Includes Queer Peers (published Aug 8, 2006, by afterellen.com), writer Rose Yndigoyen says,
Ms. Yndigoyen offers this sample of Cosmo’s foray into lesbian love stories for adolescent girls:
Wonder why Cosmo is writing about lesbian teenagers? Ms. Yndigoyen explains:
But is it really that CosmoGirl! is writing for an audience that already embraces homosexuality or is there, perhaps, another motive?
Ms. Yndigoyen admits that articles like “Should Their Love Be Legal?” (promoting “gay marriage”) are intended as “training wheels” for young teenage girls to help them accept “queerness” as just another aspect of life. She quite rightly labels their tactic “the subtle subversion of heterosexist norms.”
How many little girls are being deceived by these articles, perhaps even enticed? CosmoGirl! has a circulation of 1.35 million.
Parents, you really must consider this an urgent wake-up call. Schools, books, TV shows, magazines, and peers are not-so-subtly convincing your kids that homosexuality is normal. It’s considered “cool” and “trendy” among teenagers to experiment with being “gay” or “bi.”
It’s your responsibility to protect your children from evil, to teach and equip them to stand firm in this ungodly and downward spiralling culture. Do your kids know what the Bible teaches about God’s design for marriage and sexuality? Can they articulate why homosexuality is sin, why “gay marriage” is wrong? Do they understand the consequences, emotional and physical and spiritual, of pursuing homosexuality?
If it would be helpful to you, contact us for a simple Bible study suitable for junior high and senior high students. It just might provide the starting point you need for a very beneficial dialogue with the precious souls in your house.
