President and First Lady Clinton,
I submitted an article titled Sleight of Mind - Strategy of Deception to Feminist Studies Magazine. I learned of Feminist Studies Magazine in a message submitted to a Feminist Pedagogy e-mail list I subscribe to. The article is about how Equal Rights For Women is being hurt by pro-gay/lesbian and pro-abortion advocates who are attaching their causes to the Women's Movement. I posted the article to the Feminist Pedagogy list.
I was accused of posting an article not relevant to Feminist Pedagogy. I queried my accusers and received vague and ambiguous responses. After further probing I was accused of homophobia. I have been banned from further postings to the list. The list consists of over 150 people. My accusers numbered less then 15. Many of the same accusers had chided me for posting pro-life articles to the list in the past.
A person referred to me as "the oppressor" and admitted they were lesbian and pro-abortion. That individual at least had the courage to admit that it was not the relevance of the content of my posting that they objected to.
The facilitator posted a message to the list that asked others to flood my mail-box with hundreds of messages. Fortunately, the members of the list ignored that suggestion. I don't consider that type of posting to be appropriate, do you?
People who aren't gender confused (aka normal heterosexual people), and pro-lifers (aka people who believe murdering their unborn child is wrong) are being prevented from presenting their views in Feminist Circles.
The University of Maryland Women's Studies department publishes Feminist Studies Magazine. The Women's Studies Department writes, "For 25 years, FEMINIST STUDIES has played a pioneering role in publishing significant work in feminist theory, political analysis, research in literature, history, and the social sciences, and creative writing."
The University of Maryland Women's Studies faculty vitae include references to race, the American Ethnological Society, gender, homosexuality, ethnicity, religion, lesbian theory, granulation of heterosexuality, lesbian scholarships for Quakers, Urban Anthropology, sexual identities, Lesbian Teaching in the Queer Nineties, Local and Global: AIDS Activism and Feminist Theory, etc. etc. etc. What I did not find was reference to Equal Social, Political, and Economic Rights for Women. The faculty vitae can be found at http://www.inform.umd.edu/EdRes/Colleges/ARHU/Depts/WomensStudies/wmstfac/.
People who are embracing feminist causes should be aware that they may be involved with a group whose true agenda is far different from the perceived agenda of achieving Equal Social, Political and Economic rights for women. If the true agenda of Feminist/Women's Studies is not Equal Social, Political and Economic Rights for women is this fact being made clear to students and parents of students entering this discipline?
President Clinton, you are a Council on Foreign Relations member. On 15 May 1959 a document titled Training Under the Mutual Security Program was released. CFR member Army General Richard G. Stilwell drafted the document as a member of a special Presidential committee for CFR member Eisenhower. Air Force General Edward G. Lansdale wrote much of the material. The document is included as an Appendix to a book called THE SECRET TEAM. The Stilwell committee document of 1959 Training Under The Mutual Security Program includes recommendations for a group to bring about attitudinal shifts in people of other nations and our own through an "educational" program. 
The last paragraph of the Stilwell committee document states
"The Ultimate Requirement ...The Executive Branch agencies need to maintain continuing contact with the research institutions...our basic deficiencies in linguistics, in political awareness, empathy and cross-cultural comprehension can only be rectified through a measurable reorientation of the American educational system. Contribution to the development of guidelines for such reorientation is an important responsibility of State, Defense and Health, Eduction and Welfare in close collaboration."
The Stilwell's committee document, states:
"the nerve center of an expanded program is the Country Team. The Country teams must assume a new order of responsibility as regards selection and programming of trainees, both with and independent of the local government. It has heavy coordination tasks in several areas. It needs comprehensive and up-to-date biographic registers and other data. All Teams will require a full time individual as central control point; most will need some personnel augmentation."
The Stilwell Document recommended the "Country Team" go domestic. The Stilwell's committee document recommended the "country team" would "inform or influence public opinion - for agencies of the U.S. Government" within the United States -- including the public school systems.
Lloyd Free was one of the first country team Public Affairs Officers. Lloyd Free worked with a psycho-political researcher named Hadley Cantril. The Rockefeller Family funded their work. Many members of the Rockefeller family belong to the CFR. In 1947 Lloyd Free was Special assistant to the Director of the Office of International Information for the department of State -- Lloyd Free ran the Italian Country Team. The research institutions, recommended by CFR member Stilwell's committee, were Cantril's and Free's Institute for International Social Research and The Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University. Both have ties to Cecil Rhodes Round Table Groups. Both have ties to the Council on Foreign Relations. The Institute for International Social Research at Princeton and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton were but a small part of the preparations of a power structure established between London and New York Round Table Groups that "would penetrate deeply into university life, the press, and the practice of foreign policy." 
The Stilwell Committee report recommended these institutes penetrate deeply into the American Public School system. Did Council researchers, at the Institute for International Social Research and Institute for Advanced Studies, develop extensive research projects and psycho-political operations focused on several generations of American school children to brainwash them?
In 1918 Lewis Madison Terman was a Major in the Division of Psychology for the Surgeon General's Office. Terman was appointed to a five member board to revise Army mental test methods for use in schools. Terman was appointed head of Stanford's psychology department in 1922. During the 1920's Terman was co-author of the Stanford Achievement Tests. In his book Measurement of Intelligence, we learn that the tests were used to measure racial levels of intelligence. Terman writes, the level of intelligence dullness is:
"very, very common among Spanish-Indian and Mexican families of the Northwest and also among negroes. Their dullness seems to be racial, or at least inherent in family stocks from which they come. The fact that one meets this type with such extraordinary frequency among Indians, Mexicans, and negroes suggests quite forcibly that the whole question of racial differences in mental traits will have to be taken up anew and by experimental methods. The writer predicts that when this is done there will be discovered enormously significant racial differences in general intelligence, differences which cannot be wiped out by any scheme of mental culture. Children of this group should be segregated in special classes and be given instruction which is concrete and practical..." 
In the 1930's Terman applied his bigotry and talent for testing to the measurement of masculinity-femininity and to the study of marital happiness. Terman's study included categorizing certain traits as "female" and certain traits as "male." Males that showed high "female" characteristics on Terman's scales include firemen, police officers, and clergy, all of who had high moral and ethical standards. Terman's work on masculinity and femininity laid much of the groundwork for the modern application of psychometrics to personality study. There are two genders, male and female. 
Terman's study is an exercise in gender confusion by a racist and sexist. Was Terman's study part of a well planned Council on Foreign Relations/Army Intelligence Psychological Operation to destroy the traditional family, create tension among different cultural groups, and retard progress of the Equal Rights Movement for Women?
Are results from intelligence tests and Nationwide tests such as the Scholastic Aptitude test, Legal Scholastic Aptitude Tests, and Medical College Aptitude Tests made available to researchers at Council on Foreign Relations research organizations such as Cantril's Institute for International Social Research to help them prepare psycho-political PSYOPs focused at the nations youth and evaluate the effectiveness of those psychological operations? As a parent, how do you feel about that? Were experiments conducted upon our children without our knowledge? Isn't there something illegal about that? Are part of the psycho-political operations focused at subverting and retarding the Equal Rights Movement for Women?
Has the true agenda of the Feminist Movement and University Women's Studies been subverted to weaken the traditional family structure and weaken religious beliefs? If a student is sent to the University and is not confused about their gender and the student returns home gay or lesbian should the parents sue the University for the damage they have caused? If a student is sent to the University with religious convictions and returns home confused about those convictions has the student been properly educated?
There is something seriously wrong in the area of Feminist Studies and Feminist Pedagogy. Feminism is being used as a platform to advance tolerance of gender confusion, and pro-abortion sentiments, not to further equal rights for women.
Serious damage and disservice is being done to the Feminist movement and to the progress of achieving equal rights for women. The damage is being done by a small well organized segment of Feminists and Women's Studies people. This small group has its own agenda and has taken control of the Feminist movement and Women Studies discipline.
President Clinton, your daughter will be attending Stanford University. If she returns home a lesbian, who has abandoned her faith, and believes that it is perfectly within her rights to kill her illegitimate child will you feel that the University has done a good job in educating your daughter?
The article submitted to the Feminist Pedagogy List follows. When I responded to the allegations that my article was not homophobic my response was rejected by the list server. I had been removed from the list by the facilitator.

>To: FEMPED-L@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU <Feminist Pedagogy List> From: email@example.com (roundtable) Subject: Sleight of Mind - Strategy of Deception
>c/o Women's Studies Department
>Woods Hall, University of Maryland
>College Park, Maryland 20742
>I would like to submit the following article for publication in FEMINIST STUDIES:
>Sleight of Mind - Strategy of Deception by roundtable
>If American women achieve equality, our nation can be a role model for other nations. Fighting against folkways and mores of other nations slows progress towards achieving equal rights for women. Concentrating efforts to achieve equal rights for women in America increase the chance for success everywhere.
>Limiting equality for women to include opening opportunities to enter the profession of their choice, receiving equal pay and recognition for their accomplishments, increase the chance for success. Obtaining these rights achieves equality for women. Obtaining these rights allows women to be free to think.
>A society in which women are less than equal is cheated out of half of its thinking power. Not providing equal opportunity for women keeps society from having many of its most able thinkers enter professions requiring clear and intelligent thought. This weakens the entire society.
>An illusionist uses misdirection and sleight of hand to effectively manipulate their audience into believing they are seeing one thing when in fact they are seeing nothing of the sort. Magicians are forever sawing women in half and putting them back together again. Magicians perform their misdirection and sleight of hand with the purpose of baffling and amusing their audience.
>Misdirection and deception are sleight of mind strategies being used to prevent women from achieving equal opportunity. Attention from the harm such inequality does to society is misdirected to another issue. The other issue is connected in some way. The other issue embroils people in emotional arguments having nothing to do with equal opportunity for women. At least three issues are used effectively in this way the "gay and lesbian" rights issue; the abortion controversy; and the "feminist" issue -- none are what equal opportunity for women is about.
>This article will use these issues to misdirect you. As you read you will lose sight of the equal opportunity issue and find yourself caught up in another argument. This should not baffle and amuse you -- it should alarm and forewarn you.
>The Gay and Lesbian Issue
>Humans are heterosexual. Humans have two physiologically, and biologically identifiable genders. The gender difference is clear cut. At the heart of the "gay and lesbian" issue is the argument for the recognition of an alternative form of sexuality. This is a false argument. Normal sexuality can result in the birth of a child.
>Whatever experience two homosexual men or two homosexual women are undergoing -- it should not be considered a normal sexual experience. It has nothing to do with the possible birth of a child. It has nothing to do with sexual reproduction. Equating this relationship with normal sexuality is a dangerous and confusing. The discrimination felt by this group is not caused by the same prejudice preventing equal opportunities for women.
>There are logical reasons why a person may fear and find Homosexuality distasteful. Homosexuality is considered perverse by many religious groups. Homosexuality is simply not normal sexual reproduction or practice; it is not practiced by members of other species of the animal kingdom. Equating the plight of a group denied equal opportunity to think or work in a profession because of gender; to the plight of a group shunned for an act considered by many in society to be abnormal is a poor analogy.
>This argument is not being made by psychiatrists, psychologists, and medical practitioners, making sex education programs in public schools suspect. If the simple fact homosexuality has nothing to do with sexual reproduction isn't being recognized by health care professionals how can educators attempt to teach elementary school children about this misunderstood perversion?
>If adults seem to be confused, how can youngsters learn anything from them except to be confused. The subject of sex education is better left to parents. Trying to teach youngsters at an early age, something adults are confused about is lunacy. Attempting to make something abnormal normal is lunacy. The best strategy would be avoiding the issue as long as possible.
>Nothing in the arguments in the last several paragraphs have anything to do with why unequal opportunity for women harms all of society.
>Attaching equal rights for women to equal rights for gays and lesbians complicates and confuses the issue. It equates the prejudice resulting in the failure for women to achieve equal opportunity to the prejudice preventing gays and lesbians from achieving equal opportunity. It takes a clear black and white issue and makes it grey.
>Some gay and lesbian groups are aware of this. I was recently on a college campus. It was women's history month. A gay and lesbian group put up a display of large photos of well publicized lesbian women. The women were in the military, in the space program, in the entertainment field, and in the women's movement. The display had a very small quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. The display had a small crinkled picture of Rosa Parks. I think the group was trying to say something.
>Groups and individuals that use misdirection to consciously undermine equal opportunity for women are mean-spirited, immoral, unfair and treacherous -- they lack character. Another group is connecting equal opportunity for women with the equal opportunity for gays and lesbians. They misdirect attention from why unequal opportunity for women harms all to lessen competition from women. They act in their own self-interest while consciously acting detrimentally to the interest of all.
>Indeed, if women achieved equality abnormal relationships between members of the same gender might disappear. Men who did not feel macho might not consider such feelings to be feminine and seek the attentions of a "real" man to protect them; women might not shun the normal relationship of males because of fear and frustration resulting from the unfair conditions under which their gender has been forced to exist.
>The Abortion Issue
>The universe of single parents has more single mothers than single fathers. This is because illegitimate father's are siring illegitimate children with more than one woman.
>In the universe of single parents, 80% of the parents who raise the child are single mothers. While the single mother raises the child the single father is out siring more illegitimate children. The irresponsible idiot calls this making loooooooove; it is nothing more than the lust and selfish self-gratification of an arrested adolescent. This is not the way a responsible normal mature male acts. The irresponsible idiot is rewarded. Another person accepts full responsibility for his actions and raises his child.
>If an unwanted pregnancy occurs there are several choices. One choice is abortion. The mother is the only parent that can have an abortion. The mother requires medical help to abort the child. The medical profession is being asked to determine whether killing a fetus is murder. This is unfair to the medical profession.
>There is strong disagreement over whether abortion is murder. The argument that abortion is murder has merit. The argument that termination of an unwanted pregnancy resulting from rape is justifiable has merit.
>No group seems to be willing to raise another alternative -- that the mother carry the child to term, have the child and give it to the father to carry for the following nine months. It is odd none of the women's awareness groups are actively pushing this choice. If the irresponsible father were made to take responsibility for his illegitimate child it might slow him down, preventing him from siring more illegitimate children.
>The father could be given the right to abort the child during the nine months he carries it. The advantage of the father aborting the child, is that a physician isn't needed to perform the abortion -- the irresponsible idiot could do it himself.
>Taxpayers who considered abortion to be murder, would not have their money spent on a procedure they strongly objected to. The medical profession would be off the hook and would no longer be responsible for deciding if killing the child was murder. The abortion issue would be solved.
>Nothing in the arguments in the last several paragraphs have anything to do with why unequal opportunity for women harms all of society. The abortion argument misdirects the emotion felt by people towards the induced abortion of a fetus towards equality for women. If women were to achieve equal opportunity to enter the profession of their choice, receiving equal pay and recognition for their accomplishments, the abortion controversy would still exist.
>The Feminist Issue
>All families have men and women in the family. Two thirds of all families have children that are females. Why would the majority of family members sacrifice the rights and opportunities available to females to enhance the rights and opportunities available to males? I don't believe the great majority of American families would.
>Since the majority of Americans, male and female, stand for equal opportunity for women why would one-half of a group of youngsters queried about their chances of becoming president have to honestly answer "No I may not become president because I am a girl." Would those youngsters fathers and brothers, mothers and sisters, grandfathers and uncles, and grandmothers and aunts, feel this is fair, or in the best interest of society?
>Male members of families whose women are lawyers and engineers and doctors would certainly feel these women should be earning as much as their male counterparts; yet in all these professions the female professionals are earning 25% less then the male professionals. The fact there is still a disparity in salary means there is something else at work, preventing equal pay for equal work.
>We are evolving into a society in which both the mother and father must work. What has not evolved is a shorter work week. We now have two parents working forty hours each. This results in less time spent together as a family. Children are robbed of parental guidance and support.
>It makes more sense to have two professionals who each work 20 hours. Both adults would develop and practice skills to help support the family financially. Both adults would develop and practice skills to raise the children and help the family grow emotionally as a unit. As the children get older, and assume more responsibility, both adults can devote more time to their professions, or make use of their free time in other activities that help foster their personal growth.
>Calling the principle that woman should have political, economic, and social rights equal to men "feminism" is a strategy of deception. It is a sleight of mind strategy that turns a societal issue into a feminine issue. It pits men against women. A society in which women are less than equal is cheated out of half of its thinking power. Not providing equal opportunity for women keeps society from having many of its most able thinkers enter professions requiring clear and intelligent thought. This weakens the entire society. This is as much a concern to men as it is to women.
>Labeling the "Equal Rights Movement for Women" the "Feminist Movement" is a strategy of deception that takes clearly defined mission and applies a vague and ambiguous label to it. Instead of a movement based on the principle that women should have political, economic, and social rights equal to men the mission of the Equal Rights Movement turns into many things for many people.
>The perception of the feminist movement is that it is pro-abortion and pro-lesbian. Many woman who are strongly opposed to abortion and lesbianism become the enemies of the feminist movement. Since women opposed to abortion and lesbianism are in the majority isn't it odd that the the equal rights movement for women has so many pro-abortion, pro-lesbian leaders?
>Legalizing abortion denies unborn children the rights of life, liberty, and happiness. Abortion legislation declares the unborn child the property of the mother. Legislating women the right to deny the inalienable rights of life, liberty and happiness to children has insidiously bound abortion to feminism.
>Abortion legislation encourages parents to act selfishly by killing an unwanted child. Abortion legislation is bound to feminism by allowing only the mother to make the decision to kill the child. Abortion legislation encourages a man to coerce a woman to kill a child that he does not want.
>The abortion issue has turned a child into property that can be disposed of at will during a very brief period of its development. Giving only women the right to consider the child property turns the issue into a gender conflict. The abortion controversy is a very carefully planned psycho-political operation meant to pit specific target populations against each other.
>This tactic is not new. It was used against women early on. The founding mothers of the Equal Rights Movement for Women recognized the trick and fought against it. Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote in 1870, "When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." The idea expressed in Roe vs. Wade, that human rights are dependent upon the wishes of others, is degrading to the Equal Rights Movement for Women and every other movement based on equality.
>Thomas Jefferson made the "Golden Rule" the foundation of American Democracy by changing John Locke's Natural rights law from Life, Liberty, and Property to the inalienable rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. The change insures that decisions are driven by civic virtue instead of selfishness. The change probably resulted from Jefferson's understanding of the "Golden Rule" and a struggle Jefferson had with slavery. The original draft of the Declaration of Independence contained a scathing denunciation of slavery. Jefferson's change declares it immoral and illegal to consider one person the property of another. If you would be unhappy being owned by someone else then it follows that it is wrong to consider another person your property. If the original draft of the Declaration of Independence had been approved there would have been no slavery after the revolution of 1776. The original draft was not approved, slavery was not abolished, and a civil war was fought leaving a legacy of bitterness in America still felt today.
>There are Laws of God and laws of man. The laws of man attempt to encourage people to act out of fear of punishment. The laws of man can be unfair and unfairly administered. A guilty person may escape punishment and an innocent person may be punished. The laws of man can profit one group at the expense of another. Unjust laws may encourage criminal behavior. Unjust laws may make an innocent person a criminal. Unjust laws may legislate breaking the Laws of God. The laws of man are costly to legislate and costly to apply. The laws of man attempt to remove criminals from society. Large groups of human beings must waste their lives in a bureaucratic, tension filled environment attempting to administer, apply, and carry out the punishment associated with a particular crime. Larger groups of human beings must provide the money for this costly bureaucratic framework. The laws of man are a poor substitute for the laws of God.
>The Laws of God provide rules and guidelines for acting intelligently. Acting intelligently is acting in ones own best interest and at the same time acting in the best interest of all. The Laws of God include The Ten Commandments, The Teachings of Buddha, and the Laws of Mohammed. The simplest and most elegant rule and guideline for acting intelligently is the Golden Rule. The Golden Rule was discovered by at least two human beings. Confucious taught, don't do to others that which you wouldn't have others do to you. Christ taught do unto others that which you would have others do unto you. Using the Golden Rule to help drive your decisions helps you follow all the rules and guidelines handed down by God. No creature anywhere can simplify the Golden Rule, making human beings amongst the most intelligent creatures in the universe. Applying the Laws of God reward our actions with a better future. Our tomorrows will be less full of problems and guilt created by making poor choices in the past. Our neighbors tomorrows will be less full of problems we created for them. Living by the Laws of God rewards us with a more fulfilling and joyous life here on earth and an eternal life after death. The Laws of God are much more powerful than the laws of man. A society in which women are less than equal is cheated out of half of its thinking power.
