A Republican politician has been accused of comparing homosexuality to pedophilia and bestiality in front of a group of LGBTQ youth, reports LGBTQ Nation.
Wyoming Equality sent a letter to state senate leadership asking for an apology and a clarification that Wyoming senator Lynn Hutchings’s words were “unacceptable and inappropriate.”
According to the organization, they brought students from Gay-Straight Alliances to the state legislature for a civics day on February 1.
The students asked to speak with Hutchings about a law that would ban employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in the state.
She allegedly responded: “If my sexual orientation was to have sex with all of the men in there and I had sex with all of the women in there and then they brought their children and I had sex with all of them and then brought their dogs in and I had sex with them, should I be protected for my sexual orientation?”
