NH lawmaker describes gay sex in graphic anti-gay marriage statement

Elliott LGBTQ Nation

New Hampshire state Rep. Nancy Elliott wants to repeal same-sex marriage because “we’re talking about taking the penis of a man and putting it in the rectum of another man and wriggling it around in excrement. And you have to think, would I allow that to be done to me?”

And to the other lawmakers present, Elliott asked: “Would you let that happen to you?”

According to Elliott, now that same-sex marriage is legal in her state, “they are now teaching it in the public school. They are showing our fifth graders how they can actually perform this kind of sex… and they are saying this is normal, and they are saying this is something that you, as a 5th grader, may want to try,” citing a call from a Nashua parent.

Elliott, a Republican, made her comments earlier this week during an executive session discussion on HB 1590, an effort to repeal same-sex marriage in New Hampshire.

The comments have Nashua school officials at a loss, reports the Nashua Telegraph. Nothing resembling what Elliott said is being taught in any of Nashua’s schools, officials say.

Superintendent Mark Conrad said there is no evidence to substantiate Elliott’s comment, no parents have called to complain, and that sexuality and relationships are not part of the elementary school health curriculum.

On January 1, New Hampshire became the fifth U.S. state to legalize gay marriage.

Last year, Elliott voted to reject a bill that would extend protection to transgender individuals under the state’s anti-discrimination and hate-crimes laws.

Dubbed the “bathroom bill,” opponents painted a picture of men and women walking into bathrooms and saunas as they pleased — “I don’t want a man coming, sitting next to me in the sauna. Do you?” asked Elliot.

That bill failed by a 15-vote margin, largely along party lines.
