Georgia Schoolteacher Warns House Panel That LGBT People are Pedophiles and Predatory Restroom Stalkers: VIDEO


Tanya Ditty, a Georgia schoolteacher and the state director of Georgia's branch of the extremist wingnut group Concerned Women for America, testified against a bill that would ban discrimination against the state’s LGBT employees before a House panel on Tuesday, Project Q Atlanta reports.

Ditty warned that approving the bill would allow gay people, who according to Ditty are pedophiles and necrophiliacs (she has a whole list), to get jobs as teachers or janitors and prey on students. She also tells a personal story about her 'shocking' encounter with a transgender person in the restroom.

Whether her hateful testimony was influential or not, the panel effectively killed the bill by tabling it  in a 3-2 vote.

  4. She is a teacher? She should be fired to protect the children from ignorance and stupidity.

  6. One reason I left my job working for a state college in Georgia was that I was threatened by my boss's boss because she knew that the state could fire me just for being gay. I doubted it would ever get that far, but was glad to find a better paying job in South Carolina where the university does protect LGBT employees.

  7. This woman is a teacher? If she is an example of someone qualified to teach, it is no wonder Americans students tend to perform so poorly in the sciences.

  8. if that is what she considers a "research paper", her class must be really easy to pass.

  9. Nowadays, I think maybe this kind of stupid bigotry helps us more than it hurts. And that includes the Georgia Legislature.

  10. Santorum's running mate perhaps?
    She's a women (only for political points) a bigot...ridiculously stupid...why not!

  11. I feel so sad to her students, who are forced to listen to her. She is truly confused. Where did she study and has she ever travelled outside Georgia and met anyone except her Concerned Womed for America (what a name!) groupies.
    Once again, people full of hate like her look unloved and unpleased.

  12. A disgusting rant to be sure, but not without its lighter moments. You have to love 'pedophiliacs'! And this from a teacher in the public school system. Puts me in mind of those divalicious ghetto girls you see on Judge Judy. You know the ones - Well we wus jus' sittin' aroun' conversatin'. Frankly, America has less to fear from coss dressing lawyers in its women's restrooms than from assassins of the English language in its classrooms.

  13. There are 23 "sexual orientations"? Are pedophilia, necrophilia, exhibitionism now orientations? Did I miss something, or is someone's "well-documented report" skewing things? Also, has there been a sudden rash of cross-dressing child predators abducting vulnerable children AND WOMEN (according to Tanya) in public restrooms? Is this why she's so weirded out and threatened by potential passage of a bill banning LGBT discrimination among GA public employees?

    Tanya Ditty...do they make up these names?

  14. Ok, so obviously I think this woman and her ideas are moronic and she can go straight to hell.

    BUT: Andy, you don't do the cause any good by flagrantly misrepresenting what she said. She didn't say that gays are necrophiliacs, pedophiles, etc... She said that those things are ALSO "sexual orientations" and could conceivably be protected under this law. Now could they really? No, it is indeed just thinly-veiled bigotry.

    HOWEVER, what you said that she said, she did not. She may wrongfully equate us with those perversions on a moral level, but she never said that gays ARE those things.

  15. for those who don't know, "Concerned Women for America" are staunchly anti-Evolution and insist that the world is less than 10,00 years old and that the story of the Garden of Eden is a literal historical account of How The World Came to BE.

    how can people like this get jobs in the education field?!?!

  17. Isn't it time to reconsider the ill-conceived strategy of lumping gay rights in with transexual rights? Not only does it draw the crazies out of their caves, but it has proven to be losing political formula. They are separate issues which should be considered separately.

    Posted by: Rance | Feb 22, 2012 4:21:23 PM

  18. @Jack
    Andy didn't misrepresent what she said...her whole point was to lump them together as the same thing. This is still a personal blog so I don't think he's done harm to "us" but simply stating what she meant. It wasn't subtle exactly. And yes... what a miserable hateful moron...

  19. Oh, shut up, Tanya Titty. While it's true that some men act in a predatory fashion in rest rooms - I've seen it myself - it doesn't mean that gay men are defined by the act. Perhaps what's needed is greater monitoring of rest rooms - I'm all for that.

  20. (sarcasm) Give the old girl a break; she had to grow-up with the name Tanya Dity fer crysssssake! And the rhymes for ditty are endless! No wonder she's a moron and a mess! (/sarcasm)

  21. Ditty's hostility and bullying non-acceptance of gay human beings is a matter of public record. See this link, for example:

    http://tinyurl.com/89zjdyo for a previous interview with Tanya Ditty:

    What is your greatest concern?
    "There is a great concern with the radical.
    homosexual agenda aimed at Georgia,
    especially in the middle schools where.
    there is a rise in homosexual.
    administrators and counselors. Counselors
    have a tremendous influence on.
    students—they are sent to talk with them.
    when a disaster occurs or when the.
    students simply need to talk."

  22. Again, they have to be from the South! And my home state too. Uuuggghhh!!!! She is a nut job.

  23. A school teacher? A frigging school teacher?! This monster should be nowhere near schoolchildren or students of any kind.

  24. Did she file a complaint against the cross dresser since it is against the Georgia state law for using the restroom? If not, her testimony concerning the issue is without merit and should be stricken from the record.

  25. @ Tanya Ditty - why don't you light your tampon on fire, cuz it's the only bang your gonna get in any bathroom anywhere.

    @ Rance - sexual expression equality rights are what binds the L to the G to the B to the T in our community. I understand why it might help advance some if we separated out, but how would you feel if YOU were the minority within the minority? If we don't stand up for them, why should anyone stand up for us?
