There are two main segments of the population who believe that if you pretend something you find icky doesn't exist it'll go away: toddlers and homophobic religious fanatics. Unfortunately, many in the latter group are politicians, which is why horrid pieces of legislation like Tennesse's "Don't Say Gay" bill exist. (We'd prefer the former; "Don't Say Naptime" would be livable.)
