Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which gives parents more control over what’s taught to their children in schools.
Critics have tried to paint the bill as anti-gay but that’s false.
The bill only prevents children in K through 3rd grade from being taught about gender and LGBT issues. Most people think that’s too young for such topics anyway.

Florida’s DeSantis signs Parental Rights in Education bill, hits back at Hollywood critics
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law Monday a parental rights bill that bans teachers from giving classroom instruction on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in kindergarten through third grade.
“In Florida, we not only know that parents have a right to be involved, we insist that parents have a right to be involved,” DeSantis said at a press conference at the Classical Preparatory School in Spring Hill, Florida.
The Parental Rights in Education bill, which passed the Republican-controlled state legislature this month, has been dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by Democrats who misleadingly claim it bans any discussion pertaining to being gay in Florida schools.
The bill was mocked at the Oscars Sunday night, with co-hosts Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer and Regina Hall repeating the word “gay” as the crowd applauded.
DeSantis hit back at his critics in Hollywood, saying, “If the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars and as heroes and as all that, if those are the types of people that are opposing us on parents’ rights, I wear that like a badge of honor.”
DeSantis handled this perfectly.

DeSantis absolutely drops the hammer on Hollywood for their criticisms of Florida at the Oscars last night:

Critics don’t seem to realize this bill even polled well with Democrats.
