Confused by this article: Tennessee bill would require teachers to out gays



LINK

Ok so my friend posted this article on Facebook and I went and read it. Nowhere in the bill, seen here, does it say the word gay or homosexual or in anyway says you have to out gays.

Hell this is from the article:
quote:

The measure still prohibits elementary and middle school teachers from discussing sexual activity that is not related to “natural human reproduction” or even acknowledging that homosexuality exists, but new language in the bill would require teachers to tell parents when students are — or might be — gay:

The general assembly recognizes that certain subjects are particularly sensitive and are, therefore, best explained and discussed within the home. Because of its complex societal, scientific, psychological, and historical implications, human sexuality is one such subject. Human sexuality is best understood by children with sufficient maturity to grasp its complexity and implications…

A school counselor, nurse, principal or assistant principal from counseling a student who is engaging in, or who may be at risk of engaging in, behavior injurious to the physical or mental health and well-being of the student or another person; provided, that wherever possible such counseling shall be done in consultation with the student’s parents or legal guardians. Parents or legal guardians of students who receive such counseling shall be notified as soon as practicable that such counseling has occurred.


In addition to requiring school officials to out students to their parents, the legislation also appears to endorse so-called conversion therapy (“counseling” in the bill’s nomenclature), in which psychologists and psychiatrists (not to mention would-be Republican presidential nominees) try to change the recipients sexual orientation.



So how/where does one get that this bill is anti-gay at all? I'm very confused by this.

If you would take a few seconds to Google you would see that this is EXACTLY what this bill does. If a teacher finds out a kid is gay they have to tell the parents. Wonder how many more homeless gay kids this will result in?? Gay kids make up to 40% of all the homeless kids in this country.

Stacy Campfield is truly a disgusting human being.

That's not too broad, huh?

But no, you're not going to see legislation that reads:

"A school counselor, nurse, principal or assistant principal from counseling a student who is engaging in, or who may be at risk of engaging in, teh gheys. Parents or legal guardians of students who receive such counseling shall be notified as soon as practicable that such counseling has occurred."

if u are going to quote something like that 40% stat of homeless kids which sounds ridiculous to begin with but if you are going to quote it you are going to need a link otherwise its probably made up could you imagine this board if people just made up shite without backing it up this place would be mayhem and not worth going to so we are going to need to see a link or else people will just think you are exagerrating like my old uncle used to say "if it seems like it stinks, ask for some links"

Even if true, I doubt this could ever be enforced.

I'm not going to argue the original intent of the bill because I have no idea.

But the words written here could be interpreted as any risky behavior - including regular old heterosexual sex by kids who are too young to be having it. Do you want to deal with a pregnant 12-year-old?

And accnodefense...for the love of all our sanity LEARN TO PUNCTUATE.

Not to mention that teens in most states can seek counseling without parental consent. Therapists aren't going to risk their license and their livelihood over something like this. I would talk to my teen clients about discussing things with their parents and would be there with them if they wanted but I would NEVER make a teen tell their parents anything nor would I tell them something behind their back. Duty to warn is, of course, an exception.

This reminds me of the bogus article last year that was talking about legislation with some charter schools discriminating against gays and hindus or some other made up nonsense that wasn't anywhere in the bill.

people who look for discrimination in everything are going to find it everywhere they look. And some yahoo saying this is how it SHOULD be is in no way stating it IS or WILL BE.

Campfield is the author of the "Don't Say Gay" bill that he failed to get passed last year. I can assure you this is targeted at gays.
