Joe Rogan is not always on the side of the angels. More often than not, he attacks conservatives for their positions on traditional marriage and abortion. But when it comes to Florida’s anti-grooming bill, frequently called the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, he has been more right than wrong. As we reported, he said the following about the bill in March:
“They’re saying this is the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law in Florida with kids… But that’s not what the law is. What the law does say is that from first grade to third grade, you can’t bring up gender transition, sexual orientation, whether people are gay or straight… That’s it, that’s the law, which seems reasonable.
You don’t want an unknown person who’s a teacher, a stranger, talking to your child, who’s six, about sexual transitioning and gender transitioning and sexual orientation and gay people and bisexual people and non-binary people… This is a delicate issue that needs to be handled by parents and loved ones.”
He is, of course, right. A bill that protects young people from the dangers of sensitive, sexualized topics is assuredly a good thing. Young children, particularly those below the third grade, should basically never discuss sexual matters. They are not old enough to understand the ramifications of these things. They are innocent.
Many have argued against the Right’s use of the term ‘groomer” when discussing the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. But it is a reasonable word, justified by the reality of the situation. In fact, Joe Rogan agrees:
“There’s a lot of f***ing crazy people who want to be teachers. Someone once said to me, or read this, the term ‘groomer,’ a lot of people don’t like that term online, they’re very upset. But they’re real. There are groomers. Well, you don’t like it? Do you not like it because you don’t want children to be groomed or do you not like it because it’s a pejorative against the Left, which I think is more likely.”
“Someone … said there should be a block against using the term groomer… Not all teachers are groomers, but a lot of teachers are groomers. You should be really good to talk to … seven-year-olds about sex”
He also connected it to the “Don’t Say Gay” bill:

“That’s why what they were calling the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill in Florida was so infuriating. Like, when you’re saying that you oppose any sort of legislation that prevents people from talking about sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation with people that are first grade through third grade, you oppose anything that restricts that.
I go ‘okay who are you talking about? Because I have had some… idiots for teachers. Can you imagine if those .. idiots were trying to convince your child to be homosexual or even straight ”
We applaud Joe Rogan for his spirited defense of children. He is on the right side of history here, and we are happy to see patriots from all sides of the aisles rushing to the defense of our most innocent citizens.
