Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield on Tuesday reintroduced his infamous “Don't Say Gay” bill, which seeks to outlaw the discussion of sexual minorities in Tennessee's public schools before the ninth grade.

The controversial bill, renamed the Classroom Protection Act (SB234), was approved by the Senate two years ago but died in the House last year.

Campfield first introduced similar legislation eight years ago in the House.

The bill seeks to prohibit schools from teaching anything that is “inconsistent with natural human reproduction.” And classifies such subject matter as “inappropriate for the intended student audience.”

The new version does allow counselors to discuss such issues in private with a student. But the counselors cannot keep such conversations private. The bill would mandate that parents be informed that such counseling has taken place.

The Tennessee Equality Project, a gay rights advocate, called the new bill “dangerous,” saying that students and school personnel are not well served by the measure.

Republican Governor Bill Haslam has objected to previous versions of the bill.

“It's not something that I think is particularly helpful or needed right now,” Haslam said last year. “I think the state already has rules in place about what can be taught.”
