Sophia Bush - Sophia Bush Slams Tennessee Lawmakers Over Gay Rights

Actress Sophia Bush has spoken out against lawmakers in Tennessee over controversial new legislation which would ban school teachers and young students from discussing gay issues.
The One Tree Hill star, who is a keen gay rights activist, is fuming about a bill which was passed in the state last week (ends22May11), which, if made law, would forbid the discussion of same-sex relationships in early school years.
Bush has taken to her Twitter account to blast officials in the state for putting forward the proposal, writing in a series of posts on the social networking site, "Tennessee has banned the word 'gay' or any discussion of homosexuality from schools. So what are the Lgbt (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) kids gonna to do? Feel more alone?... I am sickened that we live in a world where such blatant hate can become law.
"Teachers/students/parents stand up & fight for what is right!... I am so sick of the intolerance it makes me want to punch someone... I'd love to take all of my gay best friends to the TN legislature for a chat. Look them in the eye & then try saying they're not equal."
