Nascent gay marriage group FCKH8
is evolving beyond marriage and taking on Tennessee
Senator Stacey Campfield's “Don't Say Gay” Bill.
The group's first video was aimed at
California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8. Prop 8 Is H8:
Straight Talk on Gay Marriage has been viewed by hundreds of
thousands on the group's YouTube channel alone.
Now the group is going after
Campfield's proposed bill that seeks to ban the discussion of sexual
minorities in Tennessee's public schools before the ninth grade.
In FCKH8.com: The “Teachers Can't
Talk About Homos” Law a young girl says: “Some words are
pretty fucking offensive to say to kids.”
“But gay, that's not one of them,”
a boy adds, followed by a train of kids saying: “So why the fuck
does the state of Tennessee keep working to pass a law – a law –
making it a crime – crime! – for teachers to even mention the
“Kids, there's no such thing as
homos,” a female teacher interrupts. (The video is embedded in the
right panel of this page.)
FCKH8 sells t-shirts, stickers and
calendars to support gay rights groups.
