TN Senate Approves "Don't Say Gay"

One day after approving a ban on all local LGBT rights, the Tennessee Senate has approved the "Don't Say Gay" bill.
Under the proposal approved 20-11 on Friday, any instruction or materials at a public elementary or middle school will be "limited exclusively to age-appropriate natural human reproduction science." Republican Senate sponsor Stacey Campfield of Knoxville says "homosexuals don't naturally reproduce." Campfield says current state curriculum is not clear on what can be taught.
The House version of the bill has been withdrawn for the current session, but its sponsor has vowed to reintroduce it next year.
