The Daily Show host Jon Stewart on Tuesday took a swipe at Tennessee state Senator Stacey Campfield's “Don't Say Gay” bill.

On Wednesday, the Senate put off for the fourth time a scheduled vote on the bill that seeks to outlaw the discussion of sexual minorities in Tennessee's public schools before the ninth grade.

In a segment titled We're Here, We're Queer, Get Newsed To It, Stewart poked fun at the measure's reasoning.

“You know keeping people from saying the word gay is not really going to keep people from being gay,” Stewart quipped. “Being gay isn't like Beetle Juice. If you say it out loud too many times, you're gay.”

During an interview on CNN, Campfield insisted his bill is “neutral” and doesn't judge whether being gay is a positive or a negative.

“Hey, here's a fun fact. At the same time this guy's bill is making its way through Tennessee's Senate, a bill is also making its way through the Tennessee Statehouse that mandates science teachers have the freedom to teach alternative theories to evolution. So, in Tennessee the definition of neutrality is gay people are not allowed to be brought up, but whether Adam and Eve had pet dinosaurs when the Earth was created 6,000 years ago [is]. We should really teach that controversy.”
