Florida Pulls LGBTQ+ Support, Antibullying Video After Don't Say Gay

One of the many negative impacts of Florida’s newly enacted “don’t say gay” law is the removal of a 12-minute video that teaches middle and high school students about preventing bullying and supporting their LGBTQ+ peers.

The Duval school district also plans to reduce an LGBTQ+ support guide drastically, and the school board will vote Monday on a policy that could require schools to notify parents if their students wish to change their names or pronouns on unofficial records, including yearbooks and ID cards, according to Jacksonville Today.

These actions are primarily in response to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law (commonly known as “don’t say gay”), which restricts how schools can teach about sexual orientation and gender identity. Parents say the law gives them control over their children’s education, but critics call it discriminatory and unnecessary.

In a review of internal district emails, Jacksonville Today found an email from a Duval Schools federal grant coordinator raising concerns about removing the anti-bullying video.

1. Desantis is really setting back the clock on LGTBQ individuals.

Can’t believe this is happening as other states will follow suite. Between Texas and Florida we are regressing in time

3. Of course they did

 

Give it another month, and they'll be running PSA's encouraging people to bully and beat up LGBTQ's. After all, that is what they really want. Small-brained, elevator-shod no-heart DeathSentence is that filled with hatred toward us. He wants to wipe us out with a signature, and sick his equally small-minded Nazi bullies on us all.

I'm beginning to doubt if it "gets better." I just know it won't get better in Florida... It'll only get worse as long as DeSatan is allowed to goose-step all over LGBTQ's in that rotten penis-shaped third-world hellhole.

4. take their Federal money away. It's going to be hard on them but what else can be done

They need to be penalized and money is the only hurt anyone understands
