Tennessee’s state judiciary committee passed the “don’t say gay” bill this week, prohibiting any discussion of homosexuality prior to ninth grade. Sponsored by Sen. Stacey Campfield, R-Knoxille, the measure is being added to the existing Board of Education’s “family life curriculum.” The 6-3 Republican-dominated vote is now headed to the Senate floor, and supports Campfield’s suspicions that homosexuality is being discussed in classrooms despite the state Department of Education claiming they were unaware of any such activity. Campfield has been pushing the bill for six years.
Do we need more evidence that they want us dead?
Seriously? What the fuck?
At first I thought this was a law banning people from calling things “gay” as a slur/synonym for “lame” or “bad.” No actually it’s a proposed law to make it illegal for teachers to mention that homosexuality exists. UGHHHHHH
It also makes it illegal for guidance counselors to both mention gay and/or talk about it with students that come to them.
