From the wingnut bumpkin who spearheaded the “Don’t Say Gay” bill in Tennessee:
“That bullying thing is the biggest lark out there.”
“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community — it was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”
“My understanding is that it is virtually – not completely, but virtually – impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex…very rarely [transmitted].”
“What’s the average lifespan of a homosexual? it’s very short. Google it yourself.”
“Homosexuals represent about 2 to 3 percent of the population yet you look at television and plays and theaters, it’s 50 percent of the theaters, probably more than that, 50 percent of the theaters based on something about homosexuality.”
