Tennessee GOP: Report Students Who Might Be Gay

Tennessee GOP: Report Students Who Might Be Gay
Posted on 01/30/2013 at 4:30 pm by JM Ashby

A new provision added to Tennessee’s proposed “Don’t Say Gay” bill compels teachers to inform parents if they believe their child might be gay.

The bill, SB 234, still bars Tennessee teachers from discussing any facet of “non-heterosexual” sexuality with children in grades K-8. But the newest iteration also includes a provision requiring teachers or counselors to inform the parents of some students who identify themselves as LGBT. State Sen. Stacey Campfield (R), who authored the bill the first time around and again introduced it this time, calls out students who might be “at risk,” but leaves the interpretation of that behavior to the teacher.

Don’t say gay, and don’t discuss being gay with students, but please inform parents if you believe a student is “at risk” of being gay. To what end?

7. WTF?!?!

"at risk"?? What does that mean?? How do you tell? Since the article mentions K-8 I'm thinking that open to interpretation means that every K-4 boy may be "at risk" simply by the natural brain development and they way they act. My girlfriends 6 year old son has run around jumping and singing "I'm a fairy", had put on some of his moms necklaces and rings and cat-walked saying "I'm a princess", Started "vogueing" during last years Super Bowl and saying there should be more dancing and less football, or saying he was going to marry me just because he thinks it's funny to see my facial expression and shudder. If we're talking interpretation, he's "at risk" for being a rather normal whiny completely un-masculine 6 year old boy that's more stereotypical "girly" than my 7 year old daughter but it's normal at that age and he has no concept of gay or straight.
