What is WRONG with these people? Can someone tell them it is 2022?




BREAKING: The sponsor of the "Don't Say Gay" bill in the Florida House,
@josephbharding
, just introduced an amendment that would REQUIRE SCHOOLS TO OUT LGBTQ STUDENTS even if the school believes THE DISCLOSURE WILL RESULT IN "ABUSE, ABANDONMENT, OR NEGLECT"


If young LGBTQI people do not already have a storm of horror thrown at them by society it they grow up in the wrong red place...

2. Yeah, the cruelty is the point. It has nothing to do with education,

it has everything to do with just simply being cruel, evil people.

4. It's not just LGBTQ kids that are going to suffer from this.

How many straight kids are going to be "outed" for malicious reasons? This kind of bullshit could easily turn into a modern day version of the Salem witch trials. It's fucking heinous.

"It's 2022 AD, not 2022 BC"!

Educators can withhold the info if it would result in abuse etc

Still a BS law.

I don't even know how to respond to what you said. Because you are 100% correct. We all hope that teachers have their students' best interests at heart, but that is not always the case.

23. What are you seeing there that I am not?

Genuine question.

The text on the left says it can be withheld. But the text on the right appears to say that a disclosure must be made with the parent within six weeks.

If it is not saying there must be disclosure to the parent, then what is that six weeks referring to?

31. My take is that it actually only says a plan must be developed ...

Not actually saying that the information must be disclosed.

Seems like obvious grandstanding to me by this asshat RePuQ, but doesn't actually 'require' any disclosures.

If I have it wrong here, my apologies. Fortunately I doubt this BS amendment will actually be passed, and even if it is, it will be struck down.

19. They want to kill everyone who is not like them. Remember Nazi "racial purity?"

It's about more than just race, it's about race, sexual orientation, the poor (income), gender, religion, & more.

It's disgusting.

20. This is a part of a larger overall recruiting effort by the right using their 'lab' in Florida.

You have 2 streams of applicants flowing:

1. Applicants for leadership positions to assist in formulating and finalizing policy.
2. Applicants that will actually carry out that policy. The 'worker' bees, the camp guards (think Auschwitz).

The right will continue pushing things further and further in efforts to see just where the line is that their followers will not cross. My guess is that they still have a lot of room to work with. This evil we see has not yet revealed its complete self.

27. It's time to make hateful bigots the minority

since if you add up all the various minority groups, there are probably more of us if we stuck together. I don't want to abuse bigots, I just want bigots to fear they might get treated the same way they treat minorities.

as in Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter - Seems like some Fascist European dictator branded people with this sort of thing a few decades back.
