Texas Defunding LGBT Programs

According to State Rep. Bill Zeder (R-Arlington), LGBT centers on university campuses would “support, promote, or encourage any behavior that would lead to high risk behavior for AIDS, HIV, Hepatitis B, or any sexually transmitted disease.” Zeder filed an amendment to defund these LGBT/gender centers.

His claim does not make any sense. The point of these centers and institutions is to prevent and educate about unsafe sex and transfer of diseases, not to encourage it. Some consider these centers to be the only places they feel accepted and safe. To take that away would be harmful to these people.
