Closeted Countdown: Glee Makes You Gay, It's Just "Teasing", and "Don't Say Gay"

I've long believed that the only thing that could motivate someone to dedicate their lives to homophobia is deep self-loathing. So start the countdown timer until these folks get caught with a gay prostitute:

  • According to Fox New's Bill O'Reilly and Gretchen Carlson, you should not let your kids watch Glee unsupervised because it might make them gay (which personally seems like poor corporate synergy to me since Glee airs on Fox):
  • Missouri has a different solution to the problem of anti-gay bullying, just pretend it's not happening.  Under HB 2051, the proposed "Don't Say Gay" bill, teachers would be banned from discussing homosexuality in any way, including to address anti-gay bullying.  As the bill's cosponsor Dwight Scharnhorst put it, "there is no need to talk about Billy wanting to marry a goat."  Because clearly that's exactly the same as punishing a student for harassing and beating another student because they think he's gay.
