Florida recently made a move that will surely cause controversy. America is deeply divided on the issues of transgenderism and gay marriage. There is still no consensus on either one of these questions — regardless of their legality. So, when these questions are pushed, not just on teenagers, but even young children, you will surely make a few people angry — especially their parents. Even more, widely accepted behaviors are taboo for children this age. It is hard to see how any Democrat could mount a rational argument against banning the mention of sex altogether from classrooms with young children. After all, children are children. We have to protect our children, and the best way to protect them is often to shield them from conversations that are well beyond their years.
That’s why, when Florida banned the mention of sex to those below the fourth grade, we had to applaud their decision. In Biden’s America, of course, there will be push back. After all, you have a liberal media who constantly wages war against the republic they are tasked to inform. But this move could really change things — and for the better.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“On Tuesday, the Florida Senate passed the Parental Rights in Education bill, a potential law that would ban teachers in kindergarten through third grade from providing instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation, require schools to notify parents if there has been any change in a student’s physical, emotional, or mental wellbeing, and would also provide legal recourse to parents to sue if they believe a school has violated any of those agreements.”
While many call this bill the “Don’t Say Gay’ bill, that is not quite true. It bans talk of any sexual orientation.
Florida Republicans have made their state much better since taking power. DeSantis is one of the best governors in the nation — America’s Governor even. We applaud the collective actions of these principled conservatives. Children are our future. They need our protection. Parents, not teachers, should be the ones to have this conversation with their children. Florida knows this, and deep down, I am sure we all do. These debates are outside the domain of the school system. They are questions of values, and values are worth protecting.
