Texas Bill to Defund University LGBT Centers to Prevent HIV

An amendment to a bill in the Texas legislature would defund gender and LGBT resource centers at state universities, the Dallas Voice reports. State Representative Bill Zedler (R–Arlington) filed the amendment to the general appropriations bill. He claims such centers contribute to high-risk behavior for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. A similar amendment was filed and withdrawn by another state representative last year.

I am forever running into articles like this. I am 24 yrs. LIVING WITH Hiv/aids. I see Mr. Perry strutting around in the pulpit of First Baptist/Dallas new bldg. dedication and I am sick to my stomach. I am a christian of southern baptist extraction. My uncle is minister in a church in Lithonia(Atlanta) Ga. I know the Bible! It does not say 'Hate the gays"!!! It says EXACTLY= "Hate the Sin- NOT the sinner"!!! Both Perry and pastor Jeffress are sinners!!! wHAT THEY DO IS CALLED 'BLASPHEMY'!!!

Texas and its two-faced, satanic criminal Republicans there would love to murder all the LGBT people in the state even if their own sons and daughters were the victims. What a hell hole Texas has become!Let this heinous state secede and begone forever

It's high time that SOMEONE speak for the sorry state of public education in the States. To think you have nuclear weapons but are as dumb as posts...

They say everything is bigger in TEXAS guess, short, sighted, dumb ideas r also. We need more resources to lessen the new infection rate, of HIV/AIDS. hopefully they r giving out polyerothane condoms, both make and female. Lets raise AWARENESS and not new infections. People need to hear safe sex works, and need support to abstain, or protect both partners...
