Okay somebody fill me in here because I’m out of the loop on this. Is this bill as dumb as the name would imply? Like you can’t say gay?
I thought it was a joke but apparently it’s real
…and it’s ridiculous.
and a waste of time and harmful.
lol just read up on it. FL amirite
Sounds like a gay bill if you ask me.
I’ll see myself out.
Link? I have no idea what the topic is.
CS don’t do no links.
For those who, like me, have no clue about this:
Relevant section from the Slate article:
But it doesn’t uniquely suck. I wonder how many states will try something like this.
If I can’t say Gay Bill, how do we differentiate Straight Bill from Gay Bill?
Can you still say “fabulous”?

The interesting thing here is that there is a “Reedy Creek Improvement District” that has a lot of the powers that has a good deal of responsibility:
District encompasses approximately 25,000 acres in both Orange and Osceola counties, servicing 19 landowners, including Walt Disney Co. and its wholly-owned affiliates.
The District is responsible to oversee land use and environmental protections within the District, and provide essential public services ( e.g. fire protection, emergency medical services, potable water production, treatment, storage, pumping & distribution, reclaimed water distribution, chilled and hot water systems, wastewater services, drainage and flood control, electric power generation & distribution, and solid waste and recyclables collection & disposal); regulate the EPCOT Building Code; and operate and maintain all public roadways & bridges.
Attacking the area’s largest employer doesn’t seem like something small government Republicons usual do.
Not featured in the Slate article (don’t act shocked): “primary school” means grades K-3.
Was anyone here taught about sexual orientation or gender identify in kindergarten through 3rd grade? I know I wasn’t but I’m also old. I don’t think I missed anything important at those ages and I don’t think these kids will either.
Obviously in grades 4+, gender identity or sexual orientation should absolutely be taught in an age-appropriate manner.
For me, the controversial part of the bill is that it allows parents to sue over what is age-appropriate. But that isn’t Disney nor the progressives’ objection to the bill. What is their objection again?
Is that obvious?
I think so. Would you argue they should be taught in an age-inappropriate manner? Obviously the issue is defining what is age-appropriate and that’s why I don’t like the idea of allowing karens to sue over it. Likely will tend to have a chilling effect JMO
I still haven’t seen progressives articulate any nuanced take against the bill, just the catchy labeling and expecting the masses of uninformed to oppose on that basis.
