what is happening in flordia?
and a shit ton of idiots.
i was supposed to live there.
my God said “NOPE”.
i feel like it’s an alternate dimension down there.
i see why bugs bunny decided to cut that shit off:
he was way ahead of his time.
florida doesn’t want ya’ll saying the word “gay” down there.
“don’t say gay” is the latest bill and desantis might be backing it…
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis voiced his support for a bill that would prohibit the discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the state’s primary schools.
Asked by reporters at a Miami event Monday, he said it was “entirely inappropriate” for teachers to be having conversations with students about gender identity, citing instances of them telling children, “Don’t worry, don’t pick your gender yet,” and also “hiding” classroom lessons from parents.
“Schools need to be teaching kids to read, to write,” DeSantis said. “They need to teach them science, history. We need more civics and understanding of the U.S. Constitution, what makes our country unique, all those basic stuff.”
“The larger issue with all of this is parents must have a seat at the table when it comes to what’s going on in their schools,” he added.
Although DeSantis stopped short of committing to sign the bill into law, it was the first time the Republican governor signaled his support for the measure since it was proposed by the state’s House of Representatives last month.
Echoing DeSantis, proponents of the Parental Rights in Education bill — dubbed by critics as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill — argue that discussions about LGBTQ issues are “not age-appropriate” for students.
they don’t want ya’ll saying “coronavirus”,
and “death toll” down there either.
i believe parents should be alerted with these kinds of discussions.
some parents are ignorant,
but others want to have those discussions with their kids.
i feel the subject of sexuality,
and trans life are pretty heavy subjects for kids.
to not say the word “gay” tho is a little much.
They do know they are gay, trans, and “they/them” kids learning English and Math too,
these subjects are all over society,
and entertainment so…
lowkey: i hope gen x isn’t gonna be as bad as the boomers.
i don’t have hope.
