It's OK to be Takei
A bill that would prohibit teachers from discussing homosexuality in the classroom before the ninth grade has advanced in Tennessee's Senate.
Another reason I could not retire/relocate to Tennessee…not to mention the floods this year. Who could give a f**k about eliminating the use of the word gay. Obviously the good citizens of Tennessee do…that’s who. Stop the insanity! Some of my best friends are gay!
Sponsored by state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R), who unsuccessfully pushed the same measure for six years while serving in the House, the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill would make it illegal for educators to discuss any sexual behavior apart from heterosexuality with students in kindergarten up through the eighth grade.
I need to check the literacy rate of the folks from Tennessee! Oops...bible belt country! Nevermind!
