Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has officially signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill, commonly and incorrectly referred to as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. DeSantis shared the moment on Twitter, as well as a message and a parent testimony.
“The bill I signed today protects Florida parents like January Littlejohn. School officials manipulated her daughter to ‘transition,’ calling her a male name & pronouns without January’s knowledge or consent. This is wrong & today’s legislation will ensure it doesn’t happen again.”
While the left has tried to create a campaign of disinformation around the bill (“Don’t Say Gay, etc.), the bill actually states: “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 in accordance with state standards.”
