The very same Tennessee Republican lawmaker who authored the “Don’t Say Gay Bill,” which apparently was to prevent the epidemic of people leaving their spouses and marrying another dude/gal whenever gay stuff is mentioned, is back with some even more ridiculous homophobia.
Tennessee State Senator Stacy Campfield (R) must have been too busy queer bashing that he missed Sex Ed since he thinks that only homosexuals can get Aids.
“The homosexual community gets AIDS at a 50 times higher rate than the heterosexual community,” he claimed. Campfield said AIDS was such large problem in Africa because sodomy was more prevalent in that part of the world. He added that sodomy was a “deadly thing to do.” (Raw Story)
Well it’s a good thing that the Republican Party is really heeding Gov. Jindal’s advice of not being the stupid party, which is like heroin to the Republican party. Obviously Campfield didn’t get the memo (Tweet?) that AIDS affects millions of heterosexuals too.
Campfield’s proposed law is designed to prohibit pre-K through eight-grade students from being taught any material that was “inconsistent with natural human reproduction,” such as homosexuality. In other wards, kids will learn the Republican fundamentals of suppressing their inner self-loathing homosexuality after 2-3 heterosexual marriages; that is, until they can no longer take it and must engage in sordid, anonymous gay sex with an underage male prostitute.
Here was Campfield on why school should not instruct homosexuals on AIDS prevention:
“You know, you could say the same thing about kids who are shooting heroin,” he replied. “We need to show them the best ways to shoot up. No, we don’t. Why do we have to hypersexualize little children? Why can’t we just let little kids be little kids for a while?”(Raw Story)
Never-mind hypersexualizing kids with valuable facts on a life threatening condition; lets just teach them how to be strippers (no offense to strippers) by spray tanning them, putting them in bikinis, and entering them into grotesque dance/beauty contests.
