What's the matter with Tennessee? Earlier this year, the Tennessee legislature, with assistance from the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and major corporations, stripped rights and protections from LGBT citizens. Now, at Dollywood of all places, a lesbian couple got harassed over a "marriage is so gay" t-shirt:

Olivier Odom and Jennifer Tipton said Tuesday they want the park to be more inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender families after Odom was asked to reverse her shirt when they visited Dollywood Splash Country next to the Pigeon Forge amusement park. The story was first reported by WBIR-TV in Knoxville.

Dollywood spokesman Pete Owens said on Tuesday that Dollywood is open to all families, but their dress code policy is to ask people with clothing or tattoos that could be considered offensive to change clothes or cover up.
That's offensive? Seriously?

Does Dolly think this is offensive?
