Meet Gary Glenn. He’s a Republican member of the Michigan House of Representatives, Dr. Seuss fanatic, and advocate for all things antigay.
The former head of the American Family Association’s Michigan chapter appears in a documentary called Light Wins: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity, where he declares teachers who talk to students about homosexuality should be held criminally liable should pupils go on to contract any STDs. Like they are not capable of that on their own!
“If some young person hears at school that it’s okay to be gay and then comes down with a fatal disease as a result,” Glenn said, “school officials should be held legally liable, individually and in their official capacities, financially and maybe even criminal.”
Earth to Glenn. There’s this little invention known as the Internet, where young people learn about homosexuality and all kinds of other fun things. HIV and other STDs are entirely preventable, and students need to be educated early and often about everything from condoms to PrEP. In fact, it’s denying information that is tantamount to educational malpractice. States with abstinence-only education have far higher rates of teen pregnancies and STD rates than those that offer comprehensive sex education.
Glenn has also campaigned to re-criminalize homosexuality, calling it “a proven threat to public health and safety,” accused an anti-bullying group of being a “Trojan Horse” from “homosexual activists” who want to “segregate students,” and challenged a Hate Crimes Prevention Act, saying it would “criminalize the Bible and use the threat of federal prosecutions and long jail sentences to silence Christians.” (For the record: The bill made absolutely no mention of Christians whatsoever. He just made that shit up.)
The dumbumentary also features appearances by some dude wearing a lab coat who claims placing one’s genitals in “the tract where you expel waste” is, put simply, perversion. A perversion, of course, only enjoyed by homosexuals. The film even dusts off Liberty University‘s Judith Reisman, who once claimed that gay men can only do it doggie style, showing a remarkable ignorance of the male anatomy. (Reisman just needs a gay porn watching session with her colleague Peter LaBarbera.)
