    Tenn. Senate OKs ban on teaching of homosexuality

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. A bill passed Friday by the Tennessee Senate would forbid public school teachers and students in grades kindergarten through eight from discussing the fact that some people are gay.

    Opponents deride the measure as the "don't say gay bill." They say it's unfair to the children of gay parents and could lead to more bullying. Supporters say it is intended to give teachers clear guidance for dealing with younger children on a potentially explosive topic.
    Unbelievable. Well at least it wasn't my home state that did it.

    I guess don't talk about being gay and maybe less people will turn out gay, is the idea?

    I don't see the need to thrust sex-ed in the faces of kindergarteners. This universal objection includes the chapter on homosexuality.

    Nothing to see here.

    Seriously what are they going to do if some kid says s/he they have two daddies or mommies? Suspend 'em? Detention? Paddle 'em?

    I don't really see why homosexuality needs to be talked about in school. It's more of a life lesson, not an academic one.
