Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis just signed a bill into law that protects public school children from being instructed in gender ideology. The mainstream press has dubbed it the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.” The media portrays it as censorship and anti-LGBT youth. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The bill only addresses K-3rd grade. These are 5 to 9-year-olds. Specifically, it forbids sexual orientation and gender identity indoctrination, which some school districts across the nation have pushed. Disney harshly criticized the bill, and DeSantis responded, saying that Florida’s policies must be based on the “best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musings of woke corporations.”
