meanwhile, back in tennessee: Sen. Stacey Campfield revives 'Don't Say Gay' measure
State Sen. Stacey Campfield has filed a bill that would discourage talking about homosexuality in schools, reigniting one of the Tennessee Capitol’s most heated debates of recent years.
Campfield, R-Knoxville, has introduced a measure that would prohibit elementary and middle school teachers from bringing up homosexuality, and it would require guidance counselors to report to parents some conversations about their child’s sexuality.
The bill, which Campfield has titled the “Classroom Protection Act,” builds on the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill that failed in the state legislature last spring. Opponents already are gearing up for another fight over the measure.
“It’s kind of like ‘Don’t Say Gay’ on steroids,” said Chris Sanders, chairman and president of the Tennessee Equality Project. “He’s listened to the objections and ended up making it worse.”
They won't become gay. These assholes, I HATE them. This IS the same asshole who wants children to bear the weight of supporting their families with good grades. With a name like Stacey, I know where his hatred comes from. Poor little asswipe was probably bullied his whole life.
