The bill that was signed into law in Florida, which recognizes the rights that parents already have, is a significant step forward in the public school system.
The ultimate step forward would be to eliminate it entirely, but I don’t think that will happen anytime soon.
I genuinely believe that today’s public school students are at greater risk than when you or I were in school. Things are considerably different now, and they’re more at risk of being indoctrinated with leftist propaganda, as well as being bullied or, God forbid, being in the way of a school shooter.
Several people have fled New York City’s liberal sanctuary for brighter pastures in Florida in the last year or so. Mayor Eric Adams of New York City is aiming to reintroduce them by bringing something that is the polar opposite of what Florida is doing. Instead of enabling parents to protect their children from propaganda by teaching them about sexual problems at a young age, Mayor Adam proposes that they be taught at a young age, even kindergarteners.
“We are going to loudly show our support, to say to those who are living in Florida, ‘Listen, we want you here in New York. Want you right here in New York City,’” Adams said in City Hall, where he was flanked by LGBTQ lawmakers.
“It’s more than just saying that. It’s also standing up and aligning ourselves with the men and women of LGBTQ-plus community, and state that we are in unison with you and your right to have a self-identification, your right to live the lifestyle, live the life that you choose to live, without any form of harassment.”
Are these people serious? Are they demented or what? How on earth did people ever come to the conclusion that teaching people as young as kindergarteners? When I was in public school, sexual education class came during 7th grade and lasted about a week. It was nothing graphic, it was school. It was how things worked. We didn’t watch anyone give birth on a video either. Also, it was done only after we brought in a signed piece of paper from our parents granting us that permission.
The world is different and it’s a less safe place right now thanks to Democrats.
