TN May Bar School Personnel from Discussing Lifestyle Issues

Aimed at teh gayz, of course

Guidance counselors, teachers and principals may be limited to giving only career and educational advice to students under the latest version of a bill that deals with discussion of homosexuality in schools.

A measure in the works in the Tennessee legislature would bar school personnel from advising students on "mental health issues, 'lifestyle' choices or other conditions or activities outside career and educational counseling" unless they have been licensed as a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.

The legislation, which could come up for discussion today, has been filed as an amendment to the Classroom Protection Act, which itself updates the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill that has tied the legislature in knots the past several years.
