Tennessee Law Would Force Teachers To Out Gay Students

State Senator Stacey Campfield [R] has re-introduced his now infamous “don’t say gay” bill. This time, he’s improved it by making it much more horrible. Now teachers would be required to report suspected gay students to their parents. Really:

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 iterationalso 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.

Campfield has a long history of saying monumentally stupid and incorrect things in regards to homosexuality and science in general. According to him, its “impossible” to get HIV/AIDS through heterosexual sex, that AIDS originated from “a man screwing a monkey”, and said that the KKK has “less racist bylaws” than the Black Caucus. How do people like this get elected?

    I think this is a wonderful idea!

    Let’s begin by outing queen of camp Stacey Campfield, flaming state senator in Tennessee!

    (I presume. I mean, look at the picture.)

    This is ridiculous and reprehensible.

  3. I am sure the ACLU will be on this quickly.
