According to a report from Breitbart News, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is considering legislation that would make it a felony to bring a child to a drag show.
“I’ve asked my folks to look, I mean we have child protective statues on the books, we have laws against child endangerment,” DeSantis said during a Wednesday press conference in response to a question regarding state Rep. Anthony Sabatini’s (R) proposal to ultimately charge parents with a felony if a child is brought to a drag show, Breitbart reports.
“You had this Dallas, Texas, you had these very young kids and they must have been like 9, 10 years old at a quote ‘drag show’ where they were putting money in the underwear of this and that is totally inappropriate,” DeSantis said, adding that it is “not something that children should be exposed to.”
“We probably, we may have the ability to deal with that if something like that happens,” DeSantis continued. “There was also very graphic language in that thing and people got a lot of video and a lot of stuff from it and I think that was really, really disturbing.”
