I decided to start writing again. My first target;
In 2008, the year that the Vestal Board decided to “honor” Campfield, he introduced his “Don’t Say Gay” bill and also asked that full time state campus employees be allowed to carry handguns at work. The anti-gay bill which forbids teachers from even referring to homosexuality in their teaching curriculum was defeated, but Campfield continues to reintroduce this legislation in one form or another. And it gets worse.
In the years since the Vestal Board has uplifted Campfield to a position of honor in the halls of the high school, the Senator has exhibited behavior that has caused folks to accurately describe him as a slumlord, a homophobe, a bigot and well, basically an ignorant, insensitive buffoon. With all due respect, of course.
Campfield stated on a right wing talk radio that AIDS is the product of an airline pilot having sex with a monkey and then spreading it to the gay community. He also feels that the bullying of gay students is highly overstated, and heterosexuals simply don’t get AIDS as long as they don’t have anal sex. Never mind the facts, let’s just appeal to the lowest common denominator. And it gets worse.
