WTF? Tennessee Lawmakers want to Ban any discussion on Gay Issues in Schools!

This is the most f**ked up thing I've read in awhile.

These two fools want to stop any discussion on anything Gay in schools... Really?

Box Turtle Bulletin reports:
Two Tennessee lawmakers, State Sen. Stacey Campfield and Rep. Bill Dunn, have introduced a bill in the state’s legislature that would ban schools from discussing any sexual orientation other than heterosexuality.

The “Don’t Say Gay” bill presents serious problems for students whose family members may be gay, or who may be gay themselves:
“The Don’t Say Gay bill raises all kinds of issues about anti-gay bias, free speech and government overreach,” said Ben Byers with the Tennessee Equality Project. …”It limits what teachers and students are able to discuss in the classroom,” Byers said. “It means they can’t talk about gay issues or sexuality even with students who may be gay or have gay family.”

Censorship? That's where tax dollars go?

I honestly can't say I'd weep much if TN fell into a huge pit.
