Basically, a Tennessee State senator has proposed a law that would make schools responsible for reporting students "engaging in homosexual behavior". That's right. If I suspect a student of "engaging in homosexual behavior" (and wtf does that mean? Guys wearing makeup? Girls dressing butch? Guys drawing penises on things?) I would have to report it to the parents. Which opens schools up for shit tons of lawsuits. Call a parent up, tell them their child is gay, and then that child commits suicide? Or the parent beats them to an inch of their life? Or disowns them and puts them out on the street? It's not going to the parents who pay. It will be the school system. On the other hand, a student might be gay, and a teacher doesn't feel like jumping through all the red tape associated with reporting students for things, and ten years later they get AIDS because "being gay is a threat to their well-being", and they come back and sue that school for past wrongdoing? I fucking hate teaching in the south. I hate living in the south, but that's a whole different rant.
PS: this is the same person that said that the families of kids with poor grades should not be able to receive food assistance
