In a May 6 WorldNetDaily column castigating Goldman Sachs for being "a major donor to GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network," Linda Harvey revives an old, discredited smear about GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings, claiming that he "wrote about one incident as a teacher where he apparently condoned sex between a teen boy and an adult male."
As we've detailed, that's a malicious distortion of events -- the student in question has stated that he was 16 (and thus of legal age of consent) at the time of his counseling by Jennings, and has also stated that he had "no sexual contact with anybody at the time."
Harvey also misleads about GLSEN's list of recommended books for students on gay issues: "The 'Book Link' on the GLSEN site lists resources the organization recommends to "support" students. I reviewed selected books from the list and found jaw-dropping descriptions of grade-school masturbation, student porn use, explicit teen heterosexual and homosexual episodes, gender-bending, homosexual hook-ups via the Internet and sex between underage teens and adults. All were described either positively or neutrally, as if this conduct is typical, manageable, legal and low-risk." Harvey fails to mention that the list is accompanied by a statement in big red type that "We recommend that adults selecting books for youth review content for suitability."
