Jesse Tyler Ferguson and 'The View' Ladies Discuss Tennessee's 'Don't Say Gay' Bill: VIDEO

Dsg_view

Last week I mentioned that in testimony over Tennessee's 'Don't Say Gay' bill (Which a House panel advanced last week), one lawmaker suggested that parents not allow kids to watch Modern Family because they would discover that gays exist. Jesse Tyler Ferguson and the ladies of The View discussed those developments today.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. These people completely miss the point. Mentioning gay people in an elementary school context is not discussing "sexuality" any more than mentioning Cinderella and Prince Charming is an illustrated guide to vaginal intercourse. If everything about being visibly gay is a sexual reference, then the same is true for anyone who is visibly straight.

  3. The ACLU is going to have a field day with this. Should this silly law pass, it will surely be challenged by less vocal yet fair-minded Tennesseans.

  5. @Red Seven...Yes, and thank you! It's too bad that even enlightened folks on The View miss the big picture sometimes. And that red head from Modern Family didn't latch onto it himself. It's always been about the icky sex for the haters...even though I've seen some pretty "icky" straight porn in my day. Christ...we've got no corner on "the ick factor".

  6. Why didn't JTF call Sheri out on her, "it's a choice" baloney?

    As Red7 accurately states, acknowledgement of an existence & in-depth discussion are two very, VERY different things.

    I had a secret BF in 7th grade, and that was in the 70's... who are these people kidding?

  7. Pete, I'm no fan of The View, or Sheri, but her point here, and why the others didn't jump on her, was that a teacher could "slant" information from their perspective, for example, homosexuality is a choice, a perspective which with a parent might not agree.

  8. The real issue here is that the people behind this bill do not want to have to compete with reality, facts or reason. Waiting for any conversation on the gay topic until high school ensures that their own version of the "choice" and "sinful" talking point has been absorbed into their kids. Any normalization of LGBT people is against everything they stand for. These are the people that toss their gay children out on the street without batting an eye.
    On top of that they actually believe that being gay is a choice and the earlier that their precious babies may become aware of gay people might somehow, contrary to all scientific and medical evidence, contaminate their kids. You can't possibly reason with the people that are anti-reality, anti-science, anti- medicine and anti-fact. Anyone attempting to combat their insanity with reason, truth or facts are attacking their faith or conscious. Being a victim or martyr for their faith is an ingrained thought process which is something that they all strive for. Pushing Christ off the Cross to take his place is a life goal and nothing and no one can ever reach people so brainwashed. It is a waste of time and effort trying to teach the mentally challenged to become rational people. We just feed into their ultimate desire of self righteous martyrdom.
    Cults do not want any competition and this is just backlash for us not staying in the closet and shadows where they are most comfortable we remain.

  10. I was being called a f@g by 2nd grade in the 70's. It is obnoxious for some to pretend grade school children aren't already well versed in the topic.

  11. @Mickey.
    Kudos on that observation "people that are anti-reality,anti-science,anti-medicine and anti-fact". Unfortunately it describes most of the world population,everybody in any form of organized religion and almost every elected Republican. :)
    No wonder gay people struggle so much in the world...we are dealing with so much stupidity and ignorance-even our own self loathing closeted gay brothers and sisters add to the hatred and violence in our communities. For people who don't want us to be the center of attention they put us on the forefront every day. Go figure?

  12. what is the deal with Elizabeth lately?

    Posted by: JHR459 | Feb 21, 2012 9:20:44 PM


  13. @JHR459: my question too. She used to be such a monster. I wonder how much is genuine. She's become a liberal and speaks really quickly, which is usually a sign of intelligence. I never watch the show, but the clips I've seen here make it seem like an Ann-Coulter-a-like turned into someone reasonable and fair basically overnight.

    Cool. I'm guessing that a loved one came out to her.

  14. Don't Ask Don't Tell don't work; TN obviously hasn't wisend up yet.

  15. I don't understand these so-called parents (Sheri, knock-knock!) who are always afraid of discussing topics with their own kids. If you are not ready to talk about it with your own children, then don't have any!

  16. There is nothing wrong with age appropriate discussion of gay people. Sally has two dads...
    Gay adoptive parent here myself...

    SFSHAWN: not all people of faith are anti-science, anti-history, anti-fact, anti-medicine.. There is the often silent Christian Left... can't be heard above the din of those insisting the world is only 5,000 years old...

  17. Is Sheri really this stupid?
