This guy is WAAY off base!
Tennessee GOP Senator Stacey Campfield recently tried to explain his rationale on his lobbying of the Don't Say Gay Bill.
Stacey also tried to explain bullying, AIDS, "homosexual glorification" (WTF?!) in completely ludicrous and fantasical fashion.
On bullying and gay teen suicide:
The senator believes that bullying is the "biggest lark out there."
He thinks that children can be pushed into being gay because they are impressionable. He claims that gay teens who commit suicide are "sexually confused," "find it hard on themselves" and "they don't know how to get back from that"
On why only hetereosexuality should be discussed in schools:
Campbell states the following:
I just think there are situations where some kids maybe sexually unsecure [sic] in themselves or sexually confused and don't necessarily know clearly what direction they are. If someone, a person of influence, says maybe you're gay, maybe you should explore those things — maybe the child, who is young and impressionable, says maybe I am gay.
[Homosexuals] do not naturally reproduce. It has not been proven that it is nature. It happens in nature, but so does beastiality That does not make it right or something we should be teaching in school.
What does any of that have to do with homosexuality?! And comparing it to beastiality?!
On homosexual "glorification:"
Stacey claims that homosexuals represent 2 to 3 percent of the population but homosexuals are overrepresented in television and theater. He claims that 50% of theater productions are based on something homosexual.
This is by far the most appalling.
The senator claims that most people accept the fact that HIV and AIDS came the homosexual community and someone (a pilot in his mind) had sex with a monkey.
He also says AIDS is virtually impossible to contract from vaginal sex!!!
Well, he's right. You contract HIV. Not AIDS.
And finally he states that the lifespan of a gay male is "very short" and says everyone should "Google it."
Scientific studies from highly touted specialist Jacques Pepin states that the first simian to human virus contact was initiated from a hunter getting blood in an open cut. HIV spread in Africa due to unprotected vaginal sex and the majority of HIV stricken people around the world are hetereosexual.
There are beyond so many things wrong these arguments!!!
It makes us sick!
Keep fighting Tennessee youths. Be proud of who you are!
