GenderPac Has Strategy Carefully Plotted through 2008

October 31, 2007

GenderPac executing a comprehensive strategy to make world more gender-free and gay friendly.

Editor's note: This post is the third in a four-part series on GenderPac and related organizations that will run this week on Gender Blog. All quotations in this post appear in GPAC's strategic plan.

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition or GenderPac (GPAC) is carefully and meticulously plotting its strategy to remove from culture all gender distinctions and normalize homosexual and transgender lifestyles.

GPAC includes its guiding document-a three-year strategic plan (which the group now seems to have extended to cover`08)-on its website, through which the organization plots its course to press the American public to recognize what GPAC leaders consider "a fundamental human right" to gender self-definition.

The plan's introduction makes clear a goal of personal, individual sovereignty: "All that is needed is for the public and policy makers to recognize that the right to our gender expression is a fundamental human right, inseparable from basic principles of dignity and self-determination, as integral to freedom of expression as freedom of speech."

GPAC introduced its current plan in 2005 and its goals reflect the radical nature of the group's agenda, an agenda that is goes deeper than GPAC's stated desire "to end discrimination and violence caused by gender attitudes."

Externally, GPAC has set four priorities, the first of which is "Public Education."  In 2006 and 2007, GPAC has sought to "train new spokespeople to employ more effective language" which will be articulated during protracted campaigns that focus on a message of gender self-determination. "Policymakers and the public still do not view gender as something concerning their rights, as they might view issues like freedom to marry, illegal searches, or equal pay for equal work," one section reads.

GPAC includes parents, corporations and municipalities prominently among its target audience.  A key player in the push for public education is GPAC's GenderYOUTH college chapters, which are able to conduct "local campaigns on the ground." 

How does GPAC weigh success in public education? On the scales of media attention: "A focused and coordinated public education campaign will consistently inject gender rights and GenderPac into the news cycle. The public and media will begin thinking and talking about gender as a legitimate human rights issue. This will help change public attitudes and behaviors, and ultimately reduce discrimination and violence."

The strategic plan targets three other areas through its three main programs: GenderYOUTH, Children As They Are Parenting Support Network and Workplace Fairness:

  • GenderYOUTH. Here, GPAC espouses a goal of eradicating bullying and violence on college and high school campuses directed toward students based on "gender stereotypes." GPAC is establishing GenderYOUTH groups on college campuses and using members to conduct "peer education" designed to raise awareness among teens as to their "gender rights." GPAC is represented at scores of universities and colleges across America and seeks to get into 200 additional colleges, universities and high schools with GenderYOUTH. In 2007, the organization is targeting historically black colleges and urban schools. GPAC hopes the activities of "peer counselors" in high schools and colleges will "generate local news coverage, spark dialog and change attitudes and behaviors in their communities."
  • Children As They Are Parenting Network. GPAC is developing "model curricula and coursework" to be used by pre-school and K-3 teachers. It also seeks to penetrate schools with its message through local PTA chapters and other parent-teacher organizations. GPAC hosts workshops such as "Policing Gender in Pre-School" and other events designed to enlighten parents and teachers on how to avoid shoehorning their children "into rigid, arbitrary, and often outdated gender stereotypes." Toward this end, the organization makes available a "tool kit" complete with posters, handouts and model press releases advocating gender neutrality, homosexuality and transgender behavior. The "Defining Success" statement for the future of the children's program is revealing: "Hundreds of parents in our ‘Children As They Are' Parenting Support Network will change the way their children are treated by teachers, playmates, and peers. Parents and practitioners around the country will begin to think and talk about the gender rights of children."
  • Workplace Fairness. GPAC uses this program to take aim at major corporations, insisting that their EEO policies include "incorporating gender rights" and the group is developing "training modules to educate" business leaders. GPAC is also targeting small and medium-sized businesses and is seeking to work through local chambers of commerce. In 2007 and 2008, the plan says GPAC will "develop local and state Gender Lobby Days that coordinate with our GenderYouth chapters ‘on the ground' to encourage passage of local non-discrimination ordinances." Such ordinances are calibrated to normalize gay and transgender behavior in more rural areas. Once again, GPAC's final goal with "workplace fairness" is nothing less than a full embrace of gender-neutrality, homosexuality and transgender lifestyles: "Gender identity and expression will be integral to diversity practices in corporate America and on Capitol Hill. Gender sensitivity training will become standard practice."

I would like to encourage Gender Blog readers to peruse both GPAC's website and its three-year strategic plan. From every age group across all regional and demographic categories, GPAC's plan is comprehensively trying to erase the difference between manhood and womanhood.  Please pray with us at CBMW that God would protect the church with truth and that the power of the Gospel would lead to a cultural transformation so that all people can delight in God's good design of men and women.

Tomorrow, Gender Blog concludes this series by examining the proper Christian response to GenderPac and similar groups from The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
