'Don't say gay' bill sponsor Stacey Campfield gets SCHOOLED on TMZ

Stacey Campfield, the Tennessee politician behind that awful "Don't Say Gay" bill in that state recently got schooled big time by the folks at (wait for it) TMZ. This is epically awesome:

Now allow me to throw out a couple of thoughts.

Campfield oozes with entitlement. He is quintessential anti-gay bigot in that he doesn't look at gays as normal people.  In his small mind, he doesn't see lgbts raising children, going to work, and leading normal productive lives. Instead, he has psychologically dissected us from our sexual orientation and then has transformed said orientation into a sex act (sodomy) which is both not totally indigenous to the gay community and not totally avoided to by the heterosexual community. To him, being gay does not exist, except for an act having to do with penises and rectums.

It's a sad way to dehumanize people and families by reducing them to sex acts thought up in one's fevered imagination. And what's worse, it's not enough for him to believe this way, he wants to codify that ignorant belief into law, which means he wants lgbts and our families to abide by his definition of who we are in spite of the fact that it's a vicious lie.

While Campfield whines about gays not leaving people alone and trying to allegedly shove our lifestyle down people's throats, he is the aggressor. No one asked him to push this law which would bar teachers from talking about gay issues with students and force schools to out gay students to their parents.

Campfield is pushing this law by his own volition. He is forcing his beliefs on gay families. He is doing the throat shoving.

Perhaps if Campfield doesnt' want to be bothered by THE GAYS, perhaps he should practice what he preaches and stop harassing them.

He is almost certainly a man with a great deal of sexual ambiguity himself projecting his own self-loathing onto others. We've seen it again and again and again.

Jim-you said it beautifully. I think closeted gay people in politics should be banned!! I am not quite sure who he is trying to fool.. I think his own self hatred is just boiling over. In a way it is kinda sad that he obviously grew up a homophobic environment.. People like this have NO BUSINESS in politics representing constituents. Let's hope the people in Tennessee send him to the unemployment line in the next election..

This guy sounds as if he is afraid of sex. He may be a closet case given the protesting too much but he does not like gays because he is afraid. I think he is truely homophobic.
He is also not realistic about when kids become sexual beings and have questions. Around the age of 8 they become more aware of themselves and are starting to develope. 4th grade is the time to start teaching sex ed.. Real sex ed, not save it for marriage and we will keep all knowledge and tools from you until then kind.
I knew I was different by then and wish I had heard of gay people. I did not have a clue until my last year in high school that there was a name for me. Lesbian!
