Tennessee Lawmaker Pushes Dont Say Gay Bill

 There's an interesting bill on the table in Tennessee that has to do with what our kids hear in school on gay rights. A state lawmaker in Tennessee is pushing ahead with the "Don't Say Gay" bill.  Republican State Senator Stacey Campfield wants to prohibit Tennessee teachers from discussing homosexuality in any form with students in kindergarten through middle school. Opponents say it will create problems for young people struggling with their sexuality, making them more prone to bullying and teen suicide. But Campfield says the national attention the bill has garnered is proof that people believe schools may be "pushing" things onto children that they don't agree with.
