Tennessee Lawmakers To Gay Kids: We're Outing You To Parents For Your Own Good

News

Not to be all anti-Tennessee, because we realize that there are many liberal awesome people in the Tennessee and you will all show up in the comments and remind us of this, but we've always presumed that being gay in some parts of Tennessee is...less than a picnic. To be fair,we've had evidence of Tennessee's terrible horribleness before, with the absurd "don't say gay" bill that actually tried to ban any discussion of teh gayness, even with kids that were teh gay. Mercifully, that thing died on the vine. But hey, Tennessee, try, try again. Bring that bill back and ADD NEW SHIT like  forcing teachers to tell parents if their kids are gay! What could go wrong???


The bill, SB 234, still bars Tennessee teachers from discussing any facet of “non-heterosexual” sexuality with children in grades K-8. But the newest iteration also includes a provision requiring teachers or counselors to inform the parents of some students who identify themselves as LGBT.

You're asking yourself, aren't you, how the fuck even the Tennessee General Assembly could justify something so stupawful, aren't you? It is totes because they want to help teh gay kids:

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...

A school counselor, nurse, principal or assistant principal 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.

Did you read that right? YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT! If teh gay kid seeks counseling at school, the school will talk to said homosexual child's parents, because that is an awesome idea and they are totally helping the gays. IT IS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD RISKY GAY KIDS.

You know what? We have nothing left to say about this. It is both too dumb and too terrible for us to trouble our beautiful minds any longer.

Before we go, yr Wonkette (particularly this portion of yr Wonkette who actually happens to be a female lesbian) would like to cordially invite the Tennessee General Assembly to eat a bag of lightly-salted poison rat dicks. Enjoy! Choke!

It's Sunday, and that means it's time for a break from the ongoing grind of awfulness out there. Let's dive into some cool, funny, thoughtful stuff to fortify ourselves before we get back to the daily madness, shall we?

After watching President Arty McDeals twist in the wind for a month, IRL politician Mitch McConnell finally decided to throw the mook a lifeline. Despite constant screaming about women with duct tape over their mouths, Trump is getting blamed for the shutdown and even his own supporters are starting to turn on him. So Ol' Yertle summoned Mike Pence and Jared Kushner to his chambers for some #RealTalk.

"Tell Donald that he has to offer something so it looks like the Democrats are the ones who won't compromise." He said. (Probably.)

"That's great," squeaked young Jared (allegedly), "Democrats are desperate. We've got them right where we want them." McConnell blinked hard.

"No, Jared," he probably said. "They're not going to take the deal. We'd have more luck getting Mexico to pay for it. The point is to offer something silly so they turn us down, and then we try to convince the public that the shutdown is Democrats' fault."

"I don't get it," said Jared (allegedly), as Mother's boy Pence furrowed his brow and sighed through his nose. (Not allegedly, it's his signature move.)

"I know," Mitch might have said. "Believe me, I know."

Which is how President Teleprompter wound up giving a MAJOR ADDRESS yesterday offering to hold off on deporting some of the Dream Act kids for a hot second if Democrats will just give him $5.7 billion for WALL and let him expel future child arrivals without a hearing. Trump himself rescinded protections for up to a million immigrants brought here as kids as soon as he took office, but he'll let some of those hostages go if Democrats will just give him cash for that WALL that Mexico is "indirectly" paying for. Heck, he'll even let 300,000 people who fled war and natural disasters and put down roots here over decades to stay a little longer, if that's what it takes. He plans to deport them all in three years anyway, or else use them for another round of hostage negotiations. (If we re-elect That Orange Idiot, spit on the ground/sign of the horns/God forbid.)
