Two news stories about hundreds, perhaps thousands, of lesbian gangs across
the nation attacking and raping young girls in schools and other public
locations have prompted a backlash against the reporters by members of the
The broadcasts by Memphis television station WPTY and Fox News host Bill
O'Reilly quoted law enforcement authorities, victims, and even some gang
members to document the growing number of attacks on young girls by lesbian
"The Eyewitness News Everywhere" report in Memphis documented incidents of
gangs known as GTOs, or "Gays" Taking Over, attacking schoolgirls. Two
prison inmates affiliated with the gang told the station they had begun
meeting to offer each other support, but a younger generation of members had
taken their group over for violence and rape.
Rod Wheeler, who has experience as a police detective, told O'Reilly of a
"national underground network" of lesbians and some men "recruiting kids as
young as 10 years old in a lot of the schools in the communities all across
Some of the children, Wheeler said, "have actually reported that they were
actually forced into, you know, performing sex acts and doing sex acts with
some of these people."
On the Memphis report, Deputy Beverly Cobb of the Shelby County Gang Unit
said lesbian gang members "will sodomize [with sex toys] and will force
[young schoolgirls] to do all sexual acts. They are forcing themselves on
our young girls in all our schools."
The report included a long list of Memphis-area schools where such incidents
The gang members, Cobb said, "carry weapons … they will use them quicker
than any male that I've ever come upon – to try and fight them you'll get
Reports also said in some of the locations the organizations called
themselves DTOs, or Dykes Taking Over.
But the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which had tried to
suppress the Memphis report before it aired, issued a statement charging the
reporting was "without … one solid statistic or credible source."
Rashad Robinson, GLAAD's senior director of media programs, called the
reporting "inaccurate tabloid journalism" and said it "perpetuates dangerous
stereotypes about lesbians and feeds a climate of homophobia, anti-gay
discrimination and violence."
Participants in several left-wing blogs simply ridiculed the reports. A
writer who was identified as "Idaho Librul" told the "From the Left"
website: "Thank goodness for Bill O'Reilly! I saw a group of rampaging
lesbians just the other day going up and down my street. Oh wait a minute,
come to think of it, they were Girl Scouts selling cookies. But I was
On the After Ellen blog, another wrote, "Yes, it's true, we're just one cell
short of being a full-fledged terrorist network. Don't bother asking us
where bin Laden is – we'll never tell."
Peter LaBarbera, of Americans for Truth, an organization publicizing
information about the impact of the "gay" lifestyle, contends pro-homosexual
influences have so permeated many media organizations that the "gay"
promoters are accustomed to having only their side reported.
For example, the Memphis report referenced young schoolgirls being hurt, but
GLAAD's statement ignored those victims.
"All they wanted to do was shut down the story," LaBarbera told WND. "This
epitomizes the selfishness of the gay activists."
Having heard over the years of the fast-growing influence of lesbian gangs
and their tactics of intimidation, LaBarbera said the reports, including an
estimate of 150 attack squads in the Washington, D.C., region alone, were no
Neither was it a surprise that "gay" activists would try to intimidate a
news team into silence about such a story, including reports the activists
demanded to see the story before it aired and threatened lawsuits.
In fact, GLAAD condemned the Memphis program as full of "dangerous,
"GLAAD was first alerted to the story when Initiative Fairness of the
Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center, The Tennessee Equality Project and
Memphis community members called to complain about a problematic promotional
ad," the organization said. "The teaser, aired during February 'sweeps'
month, foreshadowed the familiar defamatory script in which a local news
reporter relies on tabloid-style journalism and anecdotal claims.
"This type of reporting creates a climate of homophobia and fear,
perpetuating dangerous, inaccurate stereotypes of gay people and feeding a
climate of anti-gay discrimination and violence," the group said.
GLAAD contacted the station managers and after a private preview concluded
it was "shockingly defamatory."
The statement cast aspersions on interview subjects, calling the sheriff's
department gang officer "a so-called 'gang expert,'" and advocated a
consumer campaign to present complaints to the station managers.
"They are taking the line that there's no other side," LaBarbera said. "If
you read that GLAAD release about perpetuating negative stereotypes, you
can't write anything negative about any homosexuals."
"It's a stunning bit of crude bullying," he said.
LaBarbera has had his own experience with "'gays" wanting only their side of
the story told. He's debated the issue of homosexuality several times, he
said, and has seen homosexuals lobbying debate organizations to "interview
"You don't need to put us on with that bigot," they've told debate
organizers, LaBarbera said.
Many homosexual activists have influenced news reports by providing
journalists with new definitions of various words and phrases, and major
news groups such as the New York Times and Associated Press have adopted
some of those demands.
According to GLAAD's own documentation, the AP tells its writers to "avoid
references to 'sexual preference' or to a gay or alternative 'lifestyle.'"
And it says the New York Times tells its writers to "avoid" the term
"admitted homosexual" because that "suggests criminality or shame." They
also are told to avoid the term "gay rights," because "advocates for gay
issues are concerned that the term may invite resentment by implying
'special rights' that are denied other citizens." Instead, the phrase "equal
rights" or "civil rights" should be used." Also, New York Times writers
never must use "sexual preference," because it "carries the disputed
implication that sexuality is a matter of choice."
LaBarbera noted a prominent homosexual journalist has likened talking to
Christians about "gay" issues to talking to the Klan about race issues.
"Obviously, this is their whole thing. They want to portray religious
conservatives as analogous to the Klan," he said.
He noted even Fox News has contributed to the National Lesbian and Gay
"Journalists need to re-evaluate their ethics on this whole issue, giving
money to gay and lesbian groups," he said.
"There is a serious professional ethic at stake: Are we going to be bullied
by powerful special interest groups into distorting the news and covering up
key information," he asked.
"Here's a lesbian gang story obviously affecting inner city schools. If
there were any justice in the media this would be huge. There would be
investigations kicking in," he said.
"This is really Orwellian. We've got gayspeak words," LaBarbera said.
"Here you have girls being raped by other girls, and somehow GLAAD manages
to turn the homosexual lobby into the victims," he said.
The original Memphis TV report included stories of school washroom rapes of
schoolgirls, assaults with sex toys, and the intimidation that comes from
the threat of those attacks.
LaBarbera told WND he heard about the "lesbian bullying phenomenon" from
former lesbian-turned-Christian evangelist Linda Jernigan, who was contacted
by a teacher about speaking at a suburban Chicago where "this sick behavior
"Jernigan said she was told that lesbian girl gangs would drag a targeted
female into the school restroom, hold her down, and perform oral sex on her
to 'turn her out' – i.e., forcible 'seduce' the poor girl through lesbian
rape," he said.
But he said that should be no surprise, because the "Vagina Monologues," a
feminist-lesbian play celebrated by liberal elites, in its original version
contains a chapter about a 24-year-old lesbian woman "who plies a
13-year-old girl with alcohol to seduce her."
The author turned the pedophile rape "into a sort of feminist-lesbian 'moral
good' by having the girl victim end up as a happy lesbian who says, 'I'll
never need to rely on a man,'" LaBarbera said.
He noted such rape descriptions were edited from later versions.
There also was an WCAU report from Philadelphia several years earlier
providing similar documentation to such allegations about lesbian attacks.
