Nathan Moyer enjoys being lost in code, but would rather spend time trying to outsmart his husband & attempting to outrun his greyhound.
Jeremy Faison = Shithead
Tennessee State Representative Jeremy Faison, an amazingly inept, rather incompetent Representative, had the audacity to say that the bully-related teen suicides recently plaguing the United States were not the result of bullying, but the result of poor parenting where the children “were not instilled the proper principles of where their self-esteem came from at home.”
But wait. It gets better.
Instead of addressing the parenting skills involved in creating the bully, he went on to say that the problem with all of this is the penalty system for the bullies. Instead of sending the bullies to the Principal’s Office, we are sending them to criminal court. Compounding this, he has apparently decided that some of his constituents were bullies at one point, and they aren’t bad people, implying that the bullies leading to these horrific suicides are also not bad people. Of course State Reps are not bad people. They are State Representatives. State Representatives are good people and have never harmed anyone. Ever.
To fix this problem we should just have a bully “get [their] heinie busted… That’s what we should do. Allow corporal punishment.”
Mr. Faison decided that teens (of any sexual identity) are committing suicide because their bullies are being held accountable for their actions as adults, and not as students being spanked with a paddle.
Continuing his thought, it would seem that he is now passing the blame for Jacob Rogers’ or Phillip Parker’s recent tragic suicides past the bullies, past the victims’ parents, past the bullies’ parents, past the school system, and right back into the hands of the state legislature that he helps to refine & reform.
Kind of, in a way, in a very logically drawn out way, he seems to be saying that he himself (and his other State Representative “bullies”) are responsible for Tennessee’s LGBT suicides.
So yeah, let me recap… Shithead. This guy is a SHITHEAD.
