Okay, this isn’t a law, rather a school board ruling.
But it is so amazingly, blindingly, completely stupid that it beggars belief.
Last June the duly-elected Escambia County School Board banned 8 dictionaries and encyclopedias because they…wait for it…contain depictions or descriptions of sexual conduct.
Who knows if these vile, disgusting, immoral books contained anything problematic…but under Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, one parent – yup, just one – can force a school to pull a book from its shelves and conduct a lengthy review to ascertain if it is – according to some made-up criteria – inappropriate for that school.
So, let’s see…what could qualify?
- A parent kissing their spouse?
- Reproduction by an earthworm?
- A trout laying eggs?
- A medical textbook describing intercourse?
Those are all “sexual conduct…
That’s not the worst of it. Under Florida’s law, ANY parent could force a school too pull ANY book – which could include…the Bible…which does reference various activities that could be construed as “sexual conduct”.
What does this mean for you?
Don’t let your kids go to Escambia County schools.
