Controversial Video Features TV Host Talking to Children About ‘Gay Pride’: ‘It’s the Celebration of Sexual Diversity’

Screenshot

A video recorded for “Pride Month” is raising concern as it features a Canadian television host talking to young children about “gay pride” and explaining to the boys and girls that she herself questioned her sexuality as a child in liking a female actress, who she watched nude in a film “several times.”

The video, which has been viewed over two million times and shared by 25K, was posted by CBC Life, and features MTV, CTV and CW host Jessi Cruickshank.

“Happy pride everybody!” she exclaims to the children, waving a rainbow flag. “Who here knows what gay pride means?”

“It means where all the gay people, lesbian, transgender, bisexual people gather up and celebrate,” one little girl responds.

“That’s absolutely right. It’s a celebration of sexual diversity,” Cruickshank states, the room decorated with balloons that include rainbows and kid-friendly smileys.

She then tells the children that while she is not homosexual herself, she considers herself an ally.

“Are you gay allies?” Cruickshank asks.

“Definitely,” one girl replies, and the others also answer in the affirmative.

Cruickshank next inquires of the children what it means to “come out of the closet.” One girl innocently responds that it is when people are playing hide and go seek, and one is discovered hiding in the closet, so they have to come out after being found.

The same girl, being asked if she thinks it would be “cool” to have two mothers, says that she likes the idea because the house would be full of girls and not boys, and she wouldn’t have to flush the toilet for them.

“So many advantages,” Cruickshank remarks.

“What would it be like to have two dads?” she then asks the children.

“It would be crazy. It depends on what their personality is,” one boy states, remarking that if the man is a “party animal,” it would “obviously be crazy.”

As Cruickshank talks with the children about homosexual celebrities, she then reveals that she had feelings for actress Jodie Foster when she was young.

“[S]he made me question my sexuality when I was a child because I liked her so much,” she tells the girls and boys. “And she was nude in the film ‘Nell,’ not that I remember watching it several times as a child.”

One girl freezes in being told the information, remarking, “Wow.”

In jesting with the children at the end of the video, Cruickshank states, “I mean, everybody should aspire to grow up and be a gay icon.”

The video has generated mixed response, including from those who are disgusted that such things were said to young children.

“This is not appropriate to be talking about. … Talking about how Jodi Foster was nude in the film ‘Nell’ and how you watched her several times as a child because of that is downright creepy. Do you not see that?” one mother asked. “Let’s change the scenario: it’s a table with a macho man with little girls sitting around who are 6 and 7 years old. He tells the little girls how he would watch nude women on film because he was so sexually attracted to them. I think we would all find that inappropriate, right?”

“This is disgusting. Children should not be having a conversation about sexuality of any kind. Nor should they be having conversations about LGBT. Especially with sick adults that use them as pawns!” another commenter stated.

“This is horrific! Brainwashing children’s innocent easily coerced minds … who never had a chance to research the morality and danger in such a lifestyle! The Bible is very clear about misleading children and where these people/promoters will spend eternity. So sad,” a third remarked.

    These people take a very unhealthy interest in other people’s children.

    If you were a mother hen, would you willingly let a fox babysit your chicks? No, a mother hen wouldn’t be that stupid, but a PC human mother would.

  • David MacKenzie

    The references to nudity in the original video were virtually “grooming” of these poor kids. If radical “progressive” adults don’t change, some of them might as well be wearing millstones around their necks at high tide.

    • HarmNoOne

      grooming for what

      • ppp777

        Child molesting , what else ?

        • HarmNoOne

          and how does a tv show do that

          • ppp777

            Its called grooming , its quite common you know ‘

          • HarmNoOne

            grooming is done by sexual predators and it involves targeting and befriending the child to gain trust before committing the crime. thats what grooming is.

          • ppp777

            Exactly , you’re learning .

          • HarmNoOne

            its not done by tv shows.

    • Susan Perelka

      They don’t fear God, that is the problem. They will when Jesus comes back. I just pray that God will open the eyes of those who are NOT “willfully” ignorant, and be merciful and show them the errors of their ways before it is too late.

  • Amos Moses – He>i

    cant make babies …. gotta recruit ……….

    • HarmNoOne

      this isnt recruiting. they see it as educating.
      no one can recruit you to be gay it doesn’t work that way

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        it does …… it ONLY works that way ….. it is a CHOICE ……..

        • HarmNoOne

          no it isnt…did you make a choice to be straight or did you just find yourself attracted to girls when you reached puberty…

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i see ….. so NOW YOU want to tell homosexuals ….. THEY ARE INCAPABLE OF CHANGE …………….. but i am the hateful bigot ……. sin is a changeable condition ….. but you want to lock them in that depravity box ……… and never let them out …………… WOW ………..

          • HarmNoOne

            you cant change your sexuality. thats just reality. it isnt me locking them into anything, its just how it is. you cant change your eye color either, i suppose i am a bigot for pointing that out too?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “you cant change your sexuality”

            right … so you handcuff them and place them in a box and then tell them they should shut up as they are not capable of change …..

            and that makes you “tolerant” and “loving” ………… FAIL …………….

          • HarmNoOne

            I dont handcuff anything. am i also handcuffing people and putting in a box the ones whom I tell cant change the color of their eyes too. your car runs on gasoline not soda pop so am I handcuffing and putting in a box people who want to put soda pop in their tanks?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure you are …. your BIGOTRY to the truth means that for you to be right ….. homosexuals have to be INCAPABLE of change …… my, my …… how “tolerant” of you ……….

          • HarmNoOne

            i didn’t say that they are incapable of change. but it cant be MADE to change. it might shift or change on its own. but you cant change it and nobody can. that has nothing to do with tolerance, thats just simple facts. answer the question, am i intolerant because i tell someone that they cant run their car with soda pop in the tank instead of gasoline?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “i didn’t say that they are incapable of change. but it cant be MADE to change.”

            so unsupported conjecture and lies you want to believe …. with no proof whatsoever …. YUP ….. hand cuffed and told to shut up ………..

          • HarmNoOne

            its totally supported, and if you dont believe me look up reports by the american psychiatric association and american psychological association. see unlike you I have nothing to hide and my sources check out.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “the american psychiatric association and american psychological association”

            they are not the AUTHORITY here ……… and neither are you or your other sources ….. God and SCRIPTURE are ……….

          • HarmNoOne

            hahaha oh yes they are the authority. in a courtroom when they want an expert on this subject do they call up a fundamentalist preacher or a psychologist, answer that…

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Not Here …….. they have no authority …. and neither do you …… SCRIPTURE and God are authority here ………….

          • HarmNoOne

            yes they have authority anywhere the law is in effect which is…everywhere.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            not here … this is a CHRISTIAN FORUM ….. and the AUTHORITY is SCRIPTURE and God ……

          • HarmNoOne

            i know it’s a christian forum, you say so over and over, why dont you give a christian perspective and not a paranoid delusional one.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i have given it several times …. you reject it …. and i do not care if you reject it … it is YOUR problem …. YOU will live with the consequences of that rejection … not me …. i have informed you of the truth and where it is to be found …..

          • HarmNoOne

            no christians dont believe that gay monogamy is a myth, thats not a christian perspective thats an amos moses perspective.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            You’re dealing with another sock puppet.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            of course ……

          • BanLadyCheckmate

            Doesn’t matter as long as that sock puppet is telling the truth.

          • HarmNoOne

            what a shame he cant deal with actual truth

          • Kevin Canuckster

            It’s called abuse, 70 – 85% of those who experience same sex attraction experienced abuse earlier in their lives. Why do we condemn sexual abuse yet celebrate the results?

          • HarmNoOne

            another one who doesn’t understand what consenting adults means.

          • Kevin Canuckster

            The abuse is toward children…there is no valid consent for pedophilia!

          • HarmNoOne

            sexual abuse as a child doesn’t make people gay, that was debunked years ago

          • Kevin Canuckster

            70-85% of those who have same sex attraction were abused as children…you need to update your research.

          • HarmNoOne

            that is an ancient theory, I would say you are the one in need of an update…that one died out at the same time as the theory of dominant mothers and indifferent fathers.

          • Kevin Canuckster

            Given that I am presently speaking with counselors who are stating that they believe the percentages to be even higher, I cannot be any more current.
            When one speaks with those suffering with same sex attraction they almost always refer to a sexual abuse they suffered as a child….why do you condemn pediphilia and celebrate the symptoms that form later in life? This is HARMING someone!

          • HarmNoOne

            church counsellors?

          • Kevin Canuckster

            Nope, professional counselors who are trying to deal with root issues properly…not just the later symptoms.

          • HarmNoOne

            the professional counsellors I know say that the patients they deal with just always knew they were gay, and very few suffered sexual abuse.

  • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    I told you guys it was bad here.

    • HarmNoOne

      so dont watch it.

    • Susan Perelka

      Every time the devil spins “Did God really say…..?” Respond with “It is written…..” Just keep responding with the truth, as our Lord Jesus modeled for us.
      How people respond to that truth is between them and God.
      Imagine how Jeremiah felt in his time, can’t wait to meet him one day, to shake his hand. We think our time is tough, imagine how Noah, Lot, Jeremiah, Isaiah etc…. felt. They were such good and faithful servants. Just keep following Jesus, this too shall pass. THEN no more tears, pain, or sorrow forever! Praise God!

  • Don Cuthbert

    Why would anyone choose to define who they are based on what they are tempted by? I may desire to be a baker, but until I start baking bread I am not a baker. It is not a sin to be tempted. Our actions and the actions done in our heart are what matters. We should pray each day not to be led into temptation, but to be delivered from evil. We are to resist the Devil, which will put him behind us, taking temptation out of our path.

  • tovlogos

    Well, today if people allow their children to be exposed to this indoctrination,
    they really can’t be shocked when their children return home with competing
    ideologies not having the experience and wisdom to understand the ramifications
    of their potentially portentous decisions. Children, like ducklings, imprint so easily
    parents might have a difficult time deprogramming their children.

    The reality is the “new world” agenda believes that Christianity is too burdensome
    to tolerate — they believe the new world order will set them “free” — yet, in fact
    they will be entrapped, perhaps to the point of no return.
    As bazaar as it may seem to some, somehow, feminizing males and promoting maleness
    in females is supposed to make the world a better place. I, for one, disagree.

    Gay pride week ended abruptly for Sodom and Gomorrah….as soon as Lot and his family were out, party over. History has a way of repeating itself…

    • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

      Amen!

    • Kevin R Hatt

      Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing to do with Homosexuality, it had to do with inhospitabl treatment towards the angels. That is true Sodomite behavior. Much like what is happening in the USA with immigrants being separated from their precious innocent children.

      • disintelligentsia

        While Sodom and Gomorrah’s sins weren’t limited to homosexuality, you can’t argue that homosexuality wasn’t among them. Ezekiel 16:50 was clear that among the sins the Sodom committed was doing abominations before the Lord – which is how homosexuality is described in Leviticus. While the Sodomites clearly wanted to engage in gang rape (which I agree is definitely inhospitable towards the angels) they turned down the opportunity to engage in “knowing” Lots daughters — IOW, they wanted to engage in homosexual gang rape and turned down heterosexual sex. Further, it wasn’t just about the way they treated the angels — the sins of those two cities cried out well before the angels showed up — indeed, it is why the angels came to the cities. In Jude 1:7 we are told that the people of Sodom “indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh” — which is considered an allusion to homosexuality. So, in conclusion, while Sodom and Gomorrah certainly indulged in sins other than homosexuality (arrogance, inhospitality, disregard for the poor), it can hardly be argued from a Biblical standpoint that their sins had NOTHING to do with homosexuality.

      • Susan Perelka

        Yes it did, it was rampant. Not their only sins, but a big part of them. The bible says what is says and means what it means. Read it in it’s entirety and study it carefully, God is very clear what HE considers to be sin.

  • Lydia Church

    It is celebrating sexual SIN!
    For shame, not pride!

    • Susan Perelka

      God RESISTS the proud, but gives grace to the humble. May our LORD resist them and deliver these innocent children from those with debased minds. In Jesus name. AMEN!

  • TheSayer

    Humanism,naturalism and liberalism are evil incarnate.

  • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

    It’s all about other peoples “children”. Teaching children to have pride in Sexual immorality is wrong.

    • Margaret Blaine

      Now suppose we had heterosexuals inplanting their ideas into children of parents who are part of the gay community? Their children would hear something like people are not born gay. It is a choice. How would the gay community respond?

      • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

        I think one thing that we need to remember children are children. They grow up too fast these days. We teach them way too much as it is. Let children be children as long as they can. Let them enjoy their childhood.

        This is my one and only comment to you. I will make no more to you. And I will not be reading yours. You remind my of someone who used to post here. Can’t remember the name.But it something to do with “Princess Margaret”

        Have a great week end.

      • Susan Perelka

        No children should be subject to sexuality at all, they are children. There is a time and season for everything and childhood is not a time to be exposed to adult issues.

    Abba Father,

    You know what is in the heart of every person. You know whether it is just ignorance or “willfully” ignorant.

    LORD, for those who are just ignorant, I would ask that You would open their eyes to Your truth. Forgive them, they do not know what they are doing. Reveal Your Beloved Son to them and show them the way, the truth, and the life through Jesus. Be merciful to them and by the power of the Holy Spirit, convict their hearts of their sin.

    For those who are “willfully” ignorant, protect the innocent children from them. Watch over these young ones and teach them Yourself, Your truth. Guard them from the evil ones deception. Though their father and their mother forsake them, the LORD himself will teach them.

    Thank You Lord for the help You will give us in this battle. Deliver these children in Jesus Mighty Name. AMEN
