I am extremely disappointed with the state of Tennessee for even introducing a bill restricting the word “Gay” anywhere. If this bill passes today this will have a detrimental effect on the youths that struggle with their sexuality. This message divides us as a community and only hinders our progression as a culture. Regardless of your beliefs about homosexuality being right or wrong this state is sending a strong message. A message that shows how behind the times we truly are and how we truly don’t respect our freedoms. It saddens me greatly to live in such a state.
