Tennessee politics behind the scenes
It was great meeting your family on Tuesday Stacy...how wonderful they all came to support you.
Nice day to show your family as you try and act like mine does not exist. Your don't say gay bill can not make my family invisible. Shame on you.
Hmmmmm........"Sh8dySlim" has issues. ;-)
Yes , I must have issues, because I am standing up for my family. Trying to make our representative see another side.
Stacey, I wish I could have been there to meet all of your family that I could've. Hopefully we'll see more of them!
I have no issue with their existence. I just do not feel we need to be teaching little 6 year old children about their sexuality. That is not the states job. It is the parents.
Ummmm, last time I checked we don't teach six year olds about hereto relations either. So the useless push of the don't say gay bill is moot. Move on to something that matters instead of targeting differences. Unite, don't divide. Family is family.
Please excuse typo. Hetero. :)
If it is not being done then you should have no issue with my bill.
Great photo! And I LOVE the nameplate. Stacey Campfield is #1. Thanks for hanging in there. They treated you shamefully (apparently some still are)and they wanted you gone, but there you are. Keep up the good work.
Stacey, why are you posing in a patriarch manner with these people? You're not married. Why didn't you mention who these people are. All we know for certain is that they aren't your wife and kids.Seems really odd. Are you hiding your sexuality?
Were his family, trying to show our support. For those people who have a problem, grow up. He isn't against families, he's for them so get your politics straight. And yes, although he is not a father or husband that has no bearing on the fact that he is a family man. Stop confusing the issues. Next time you want to say something, make sure to not be anonymous especially if you want to bash people. Grow up.
A family man is defined as: a man with a wife and children dependent on him; especially : a man devoted to his family.So, although ~Stacey!~ may love his extended family, he is not a "family man."~Stacey's!~ forty and still not married and without children. Now, he's writing public policy that is anti-gay. A lot of people think he's a closeted homosexual.His lifestyle and behavior seem questionable. Maybe he needs to address this issue.
So its great that:A) You can read andB) that you can recite things verbatim from the dictionaryI'm very proud and you should be to, this means that our education system is working. However, just because he is un married does not mean that he is in the closet. It means that he can and has made his own choice on what is best for him regardless of what closed minded indiviuals think on what a grown man should be doing. Now also, you and him may not share the same opinion that however does not make him wrong just because you don't agree that means you have differing opinions. And you said yourself, a family man is "a man devoted to his family", so that would make your statement therefore false. Catch my drift? His lifestyle is only questionable to people, who decide they are going to nit pick, not whether they actually have a basis for their argument so I suggest you take a harder look at the man behind the politics before you try and pass judgement. Now, if you are still having trouble following I will be more than happy to assist you in your search for dictionary that further proves my point,not yours.
So it's great that:A) You can read and marginally comprehendB) For you however, it appears our education system has failed. "Un married" isn't two words and "closed minded" requires a hyphen. Where you claim I said, "a man devoted to his family" you also misread the dictionary quote I posted. A colon means "for example". In other words, a family man is a man with children and a wife; especially: a man devoted to his family, the family being his children and wife. Simply having a child and wife doesn't make you a family man, thus the emphasis on devoted.Now then, back to ~Stacey's!~ lifestyle choices. I think people will understand and be more accepting of "his choice" than he may fear. Except those in his church and possibly his constituents. They might be pretty harsh. But, the general citizenry of Tennessee will likely be accepting and if he stops his sophomoric stunts and various anti-immigrant, anti-black, anti-gay child legislation, he may someday find himself a respected member of the state.I advise he start by learning to talk for himself instead of having some marginally literate guy named jess defend his sexuality.
Wow. You know, you really have a point there. You caught me with a hyphen and a colon. There's victory for you, the one who won't own who they are. Of course you have no trouble fighting with people you don't know, especially with no name attached to your arrogant and closed minded opinions. Why don't we get back to his politics? If you had ever really looked into his politics, you'd realize that he's not anti anything. You don't agree that's your own problem, if you don't like him STOP posting, this isn't rocket science. As for his lifestyle choices, he's not gay. Even if he were, it is none of your business. People have a right to privacy, so I tell you what, when it is your business grow a pair and post your name and maybe someone will get back to you.
jess, only ~Stacey!~ can say he isn't gay, bisexual or transgendered. You really have no idea what's in his head, do you?He does appear to gay, which is fine with me but he needs to prevent his sexuality from affecting the legislation he supports. My concern is that he's fixated on an anti-gay agenda similar to the way Roy Ashburn and George Rekers went about their anti-gay measures.~Stacey's!~ legislation is a means of censorship that punishes gay children under the age of fourteen.Every time I read an article mentioning the name ~Stacey!~ Campfield, I know there's some ridiculous, sophomoric stunt involved or more hate legislation being put forth. That impression has never deviated.
We are clearly not going to agree on this issue, but I can tell you that you are mistaken. You can believe me or not, that is your choice and I won't argue with you because this clearly won't solve anything. However, your fixation with this "hidden agenda",blows my mind. Your digging, that's all this is. A smear campaign, because that way it would serve your purpose. Thats it.
The statement that Stacey Campfield is not 'anti' anything is blatantly false. You should look carefully at his past statements and positions on issues before you make such a broad statement that is actually untrue.
okay, you win. But before you make such a blanket statement about someone being gay, you should probably meet the person first.
My thought is that you do not know stacey. Shame on you for picking on someone for being proud of his family. the ongoing concern with his sexuality shows that you need something else to do with your time.Maybe you are worried about your own status to a point that you are not asking relvant questions or voicing constructive thoughts.
So I'm a bit confused. The Sen. says, "If it is not being done then you should have no issue with my bill." But why on earth do we need legislation to ban things that aren't happening? And do we need a separate bill banning the teaching of everything else that isn't currently being taught? I mean, what's next?I thought the Sen., and those like him, were in favor of limited government. Lots of little bills that have zero actual effect seems incredibly wasteful. That's certainly not how I want my elected representatives wasting their time. Solve actual problems!
It appears that you r making more out of this than necessary.Have you actually met him to ask actual questions? Have you actually ever been involved in politics?Maybe you should run for a position in government to make the changes that you desire. Quarterbacking is easy if you r on the sidelines or watching a blog sight
This has all become stupid, I think what's happening is you "attentions" are becoming misdirected. You worry so much about his sexuality, what are you hiding? Also, if the bill doesn't actually matter you shouldn't have a problem. So problem solved.
