Tennessee law makers have recently decided to send the controversial House Bill HB0229 (the Don't Say Gay bill), a bill that bans the open discussion of homosexuality in the classroom, to the House Education Committee. However, simply ignoring the topic of homosexuality will do nothing to make the subject go away. This bill encourages ignorance and silences the voice of many adolescents struggling to find their own identity. This bill is a harmful step backwards in our society and will only lead to more feelings of hatred later on down the road. Please, voice your support in ending the silencing of others. Show Tennessee law makers that it is okay to say gay. Learn more at our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Encourage-Tennessee-to-Say-Gay/186678474715467.
