Tennessee's "don't say gay" bill advances (and funny response to anti-gay law)

http://www.salon.com/news/politics/w...ill/index.html

^ so basically TN is trying to outlaw the usage of 'gay' and this has garnered a response:

^ clicking the link also lets you 'like' or 'tweet' the page. each like or tweet gets $0.25 for the cause

Sen. Stacey Campfield should learn to come to terms with his ambiguous feelings about his own sexuality I reckon.

Go to user control panel, select the "Group Memberships" item, and join the "Hardened Debaters" group.

And yes, political topics belong in P&R.

I didn't read the link, but if someone is really trying to outlaw a word, they should be subjected to a mental review.

I don't like the abuse of the word "gay" but that is ridiculous. Specially if it sets up precedent. I can just picture it now, we can't say "black" anymore because it could be used in a sentence for racism. For now on we can only use the Japanese word for the color black. Just so everyone has a jump start on it I did the research. 黒 (Kuro)

I am gay, and the solution is not to not allow people to have their own opinions, the solution is to build tolerance. I don't care if your religions says I am going to hell. I dont' care if once (not every day) you want to try and save me. What I do care about is after I reject your religion, opinion, you recognize that I am still a human, I should have the same rights as you, and should be treated equally.

Of course, if you want to point out that me being gay is going to lead me to hell, we should have a really close look at your life too! Everyone write their sins down on a piece of paper, let's compare!

Seriously though, this is ignorant. I hope someone does something about it. I would but I still don't care about politics as much as I should. Hurray for living in American, where you are free to be lazy and let the country to go "hell in a hand basket".

Edit: Just read article, not really about what I typed, but I think what I typed is funny enough so I will leave it. I still think that this is stupid to have to be put in the law books. I knew I was gay well before ninth grade. If I remember correctly (which I probably don't) I had my first gay fantasy at eight. So, let's see, that is third or forth grade? Oh my god, someone said something about being gay, or gay sex so I caught the bug. For some reason the rest of the children around me at the time was safe though. . . . . I wonder if my immune system just didn't have the right antibodies to defend the gay talk.

^It's not outlawying the word, it's outlawing saying pretty much anything that isn't heterosexual or in the family-oriented curriculum when it comes to sex education.

I took the liberty of summarizing the news story.

@ HomeInMyShoes

I noticed that after I read it which is why I did the edit. The title of the story is very misleading.

It is already against the law in the south to teach. . . . . . . . . .

As was implicit in HarryT's post further up, preference is for discussions such as this to take place in our Politics & Religion subforum as per our Guidelines. Information on accessing that subforum can be found here (<---linky). Thread closed.
