Cue the Democrat outrage: DeSantis has just signed a bill that has sent LGBTQ+ employees at Disney into a fit of rage.
More specifically, DeSantis signed a bill that would prohibit teachers from discussing sexual or gender identity in any way which students in kindergarten, first, second, or third grades.
This bill is extremely direct in terms of whose rights it intends to protect: students and parents.
Titled “The Parental Rights in Education” bill, DeSantis makes no mystery of where his allegiance lies: with American families.
The wording of the bill is rather direct in this regard: “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.”
Yes, that’s right: These days, Republicans literally have to sign bills to ensure that children are not subjected to rather adult commentary very early on in their public school education experience.
How on earth will Democrats ever start to confuse and divide so early in life, when pesky governors like Ron DeSantis prefer for students to focus on actual, you know, skills?
The same types of skills, ironically, that the Biden administration frankly needs, as it is abundantly clear that the nation is experiencing a short supply of skilled workers yet an overabundance of highly entitled snowflakes, some of whom actually go on to get a real job … teaching inappropriate content in public schools.
Remember the good old days of sex education being the most controversial discussion in public schools? In public high schools, no less.
Now, the Democrats have gone from pushing birth control on teenagers to pushing sexual identity on kindergarteners, either directly in the classroom or indirectly through a series of troubling book offerings in school libraries.
On top of that, they are also demanding desegregated bathrooms, not to mention desegregated athletic competitions with all the transgender athletes taking over women’s sports now.
In other words, Democrats are attempting to indoctrinate children, from very early on in life, that sexual differences apparently don’t exist, someone can change their gender like their hair color, and perhaps the most “offensive” concept of all these days is the idea of a nuclear family.
Fortunately, leadership exhibited by governors like Ron DeSantis underscores the extent to which representatives, for now, can try to stop the nonstop indoctrination of American youth.
“We will make sure that parents can send their kids to school to get an education, not an indoctrination,” DeSantis declared.
Until Disney and other corporations threaten to leave Florida just like other corporations began assaulting Georgia for daring to pass voter integrity legislation.
When did corporations become so woke, anyway? What happened to good old neutrality?
For that matter, what happened to focusing on, you know, good old productivity?
One thing is for sure: Chinese tech giants aren’t losing their mind over transgender bathroom rights or other forms of perverse indoctrination.
Instead, they’re busy crafting the very surveillance technology that the Biden administration is undoubtedly chomping at the bit for, all in an effort to assure Democrat power for as long as possible.
