YOU just know that anyone who can claim that it is virtually impossible to contract HIV through heterosexual sex is a fool of the first order.
Yet some people seem to think that Stacey Campfield, 42, a ginger, blue-eyed state legislator in Tennessee, is someone to be taken seriously – so seriously that an anti-gay bill he authored last year was passed this week by a House education subcommittee.
Stacey’s “Don’t say gay” bill aims to outlaw informing Tennessee kids about homosexuality before they reach the ninth grade. Campfield insists his bill, which would limit class discussions to "natural human reproduction science" in public schools, is necessary because homosexuality is more dangerous than heterosexuality.
