White House Opposes Florida GOP ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill

Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.5

The White House slammed Florida Republicans over a proposal to ban discussions of sexual orientation or gender identity in the state’s schools. Republican Sen. Dennis Baxley, who sponsored the proposal, said the bill would allow spontaneous conversations but forbid districts from including LGBTQ topics into the curriculum. “Some discussions are for with your parents. And I think when you start opening sexual-type discussions with children, you’re entering a very dangerous zone,” Baxley said.
