This article happens to be on a rather neocon/libertarian site. That doesn't mean it's mistaken on this subject. The fact is, the LGBT-activist movement has always sought to shut down the dissemination of facts that don't support their narrative. They approach the shutdown in a near panic if not outright panic.

The truth, however, is that the real truth will win out.
