South Carolina resurrects bill excluding lgbt teens
What's wrong with South Carolina?

One would think that my lovely home state, after enduring the scandal of a Governor cheating on his wife, and now dealing with a Lt. Governor with the charity of Ebenezer Scrooge, wouldn't want to compound the error by demonstrating that the entire governing body of elected officials are totally devoid of decency or common sense.

Think again. A bill against dating violence, which specifically excludes lgbt teens, is being brought back up by the Legislature.

Last year, State Rep. Janet Brady introduced a bill that was supposed to prevent violence in teen dating relationships. It would have required school districts to distribute written materials to parents and students about the dangers of teen dating violence. It sounded like an excellent bill. However another legislator, Greg Delleny, thought it necessary to add an amendment to the bill specifically saying that the bill would apply to only heterosexual couples.

Delleny said he didn't want schools to be "forced" to teach about same sex relationships.
