The Media’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Narrative Is a Lie
The word “gay” is not even in the text of Florida’s law, and the Left’s narrative is sick and absurd.
In the seven pages that constitute Florida’s new Parental Rights in Education law, signed by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday, the word “gay” is used zero times. But leftists are not offering meta commentary about that by deriding the legislation as “Don’t Say Gay.” This label for the law is an utterly dishonest smear by the Rainbow Mafia and its allies in the media. And, frankly, we’re alarmed by the number of people who appear to be hell-bent on grooming young children to join the cult of sexual perversion.
What does Florida’s law actually say?
The full text is here. In short, it deals with numerous elements that “reinforce the fundamental right of parents to make decisions regarding the upbringing and control of their children.” It requires consent and transparency regarding school curriculum and records, and it prohibits any activity on the part of schools to discourage those goals.
Rainbow Mafia thugs find plenty to disparage, but they’re particularly upset about a line right there on page one: “prohibiting classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in certain grade levels or in a specified manner.”
“Certain grade levels” is defined on page four: “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
In other words, when children are between the ages of five and eight, teachers may not offer instruction about sexual things that are well above kids’ capacity to understand or process. That such basic decency and common sense have brought about such preposterously overwrought condemnation speaks volumes about the depravity of the bill’s critics.
According to the Miami Herald, “Opponents warn the provision could have a chilling effect on confidential conversations between school counselors and young people about the struggles that they’re having with their sexual orientation and gender identity.” Just about the only reason a kindergartener might be speaking to a counselor about such things is that he has been groomed by sick adults.
Regarding another provision about parental notification, the Herald adds, “Some LGBTQ advocates worry that the provision could lead to schools outing gay or transgender kids to their parents, potentially exacerbating mental health challenges students already face.” In other words, the groomers are upset that parents might object to the perverted sexualization of their young children and put a stop to it.
What ever happened to child abuse training that helps adults learn how to detect, deter, and prevent such behavior? When did it become okay to sexually abuse children as long as it’s “LGBTQ advocates” doing the abusing?
Political analyst Chadwick Moore, who also happens to be homosexual, notes another irony: “Heterosexual, like homosexual, is also a ‘sexual orientation.’ Therefore, classroom-wide discussions about heterosexuality that are not ‘age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate’ are also forbidden.”
The sad reality is that such legislation is necessary because children are being taught that sex isn’t biology (i.e., science), but that it’s malleable choice. They’re being told that one of life’s greatest adventures is supposedly changing your gender or orientation. They’re being groomed.
In a way, opponents are right — the law does shortcut such grotesque and condemnable behavior.
Florida’s legislature and governor are also fighting a battle that, unfortunately, needs fighting. And Florida is a target because its model is likely to be adopted by other states. Not only are children being sexualized, but the Rainbow Mafia has declared Wrongthink on this subject to be reason for cancellation. Not even critical race theory wields the speech-squelching force of gender issues. That as much as anything is why opponents of Parental Rights in Education have resorted to lying.
