"Dont' Say Gay" Passes TN Senate

Looks like George Takei's offer of using the word "Takei" instead of "gay" will come in handy in the state of Tennessee, with the "Don't Say Gay" bill passing in the Tennessee Senate.

"Democrats in the senate pointed out that the state already bans sexual education in elementary and middle school instruction. Sen. Andy Berke said the bill was unnecessary, and only being passed 'just to pass it,' The Tennessean reports."

From my understanding, a companion bill will need to also get passed in the TN House of Representatives in order for the bill to become law, but it is too late in the year to be introduced and will be brought up next year.
