Shhh, don't say 'gay'

Teaching about Oscar Wilde, discussing civil rights, and reprimanding children for anti-gay taunting could all get a lot tougher in Tennessee where a state Senate committee approved a bill that would prohibit elementary and secondary schools from providing "any instruction or material that discusses sexual orientation other than heterosexuality."

If we don't talk about it, it doesn't exist, right?

A follow-on bill will prohibit Will and Grace re-runs and Ted Haggard sermons from being shown on Tennessee televisions before 10 p.m.
