The Parental Rights in Education bill or AKA Don’t Say Gay bill is now law. Preventing schools mentioning anything about sexual orientation or gender identity to classes K-3. Florida conservative group Moms 4 Liberty picked up on this letter, whether real or not, tweeted out concern enough to say “Time to take a Stand.”
What would that group need to take a stand against exactly?
Is this not what this law is for?
Link to the tweet and here is the text of the letter.
“Dear Florida parent/caretaker: The Florida house of Representatives has recently ruled that “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.” To be in accordance with this policy, I will no longer be referring to your student with gendered pronouns. All students will be referred to as “The” or “them.” I will no longer use a gendered title such as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” or make any references to my husband/wife in the classroom. From now on I will be using the non-gendered title “Mx.” Furthermore, I will be removing all books or instruction which refer to a person being a “mother,” “Father,” “husband” or “wife” as these are gender identities that also may allude to sexual orientation. Needless to say, all books which refer to a character as “he” or “She” will also be removed from the classroom. If you have any concerns about this policy, please feel free to contact your local congressperson.
Thank you, Mx. XXXXXXXXXX”
