A few days ago, Washington Post opinion columnist Paul Waldman put out an alert that the “Don’t Say Gay” bill was being “universally referred to” on right-wing sites as the “Anti-Groomer Bill” and that term was on its way into the mainstream. Waldman, of course, didn’t see the irony of himself calling the Parental Rights in Education bill the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which is how the bill is being universally referred to in the mainstream media.

We’ve put out the challenge to opponents of the Parental Rights in Education law to explain why it’s so important to have teacher-led classroom discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten. Remember last year when the Arizona Department of Education issued an “equity” toolkit to help teachers deal with the racism that is inherent in children as young as 3 months old and pervasive in white children up to age 5 and beyond? It’s the same thing here; they apparently believe that homophobia and transphobia are learned as early as kindergarten.

Here’s part of a Zoom presentation on the Future of Sex Education, where we hear from researchers about why it’s so important to reach young children before heteronormative and cisnormative values become ingrained in their minds.

We suppose that’s why there’s a market for children’s picture books like “Rainbow: A First Book of Pride,” “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish,” and “The GayBCs.”

Children who are being raised by a cisgender father and mother might not be exposed to these other values outside of school.

Don’t worry — the White House just issued a statement saying that puberty blockers are reversible, so what’s the harm in trying them?
