    Seriously, all it is gonna take is one gay kid in Tennessee killing him or herself, and every one of the politicians who supported the bill will no longer have a political career.

    Pretty high price to pay.

    In America, the gay agenda is out to get the children. You Canadians have already been inflitrated. We are using your schools to mass produce gays and to teach children the glory of being gay.

    wth, how in the world is having teachers not teach kids sexuality including homosexuality going to cause a kid to suddenly go from being a happy go lucky base-ball player to killing himself? were gay elementary students offing themselves in epic numbers in the 50's or something?

    i mean, for crying out loud, yeah, we can make fun of the thread; but all this is is let Parents teach that stuff to their children, not Preach-Hellfire-and-Sin-To-Anyone-Not-Normal

    Not my problem. The legistlators are the ones who are going to have to deal with having blood on their hands. Of course, I'm sure they will find a way to rationalize it in their own minds. The reality is that this bill comes from a place of fear. They fear a non existant agenda to indoctrinate children into a lifestyle. I find it funny that the people who actually do indoctrinate children into a lifestyle, the religous nuts, are the ones who have the greatest fear that other people are trying to do the same.

    And what in god's name is wrong with that? I say I don't that swing way but I have no problem with it. We aren't taught that it's glorious, we were taught that it's okay and that nobody needs to feel inferior. THAT is something I think you god damn Americans will never understand. We understand all and discriminate against none. I say screw off to you and stop talking about things you do not understand!

    You're a Communist, you don't even believe in God. You're going to have to replace goddamn with something else.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I imagine what will happen is a gay 8th grader will find him or herself isolated at school and will hear only negative messages from his or her peers about their sexual orientation. The teachers will be too afraid to step in for fear of losing their job and the end result will be the child becomes depressed and commits suicide.
