Don’t Say Gay Bill Author Claims AIDS is Impossible to Transmit via Heterosexual Sex
Tennessee GOP State Senator Stacey Campfield is best known for being the ignoramus that foisted the Don’t Say Gay Bill upon his state, which would make any mention that homosexuality even exists in a school illegal – but he certainly seems hellbent on adding a new asterisk to his credentials.
In a radio interview with Michelangelo SIgnorile, Campfield today rattled off a laundry list of incredibly dangerous misinformation about HIV and AIDS.
“My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex…very rarely [transmitted].”
Ladies and gentlemen, this is an elected official who took an oath of office to serve the interests of the people in his district boasting that it is impossible for his straight constituents to contract HIV.
Campfield should be thrown, not just laughed, out of office effective immediately. We already knew he was a homophobic menace putting LGBT youth at risk, but now we know he’s also a public health risk.
The entire interview is available for listening at Huffington Post’s Gay Voices.
