The net finds ‘controversy’ over banning sex talk with kindergarteners

On Monday, Florida Gov. Ron Descentis signed into law the “Parental Right to Education” bill that prohibits kindergarten children from being taught about “sexual orientation and gender identity” through third grade. If you think that the final passage of the bill means that the media will stop worrying about it, think again. The three evening news coverage identified the ban on sex with five-year-olds as “controversial” during their coverage.

On ABC World news tonightCorrespondent Victor Okendo continues to erroneously label the law as “controversial” and “don’t call it a homosexual bill” despite the fact that the word “homosexual” does not appear anywhere in the text of the law, but it does not prevent children from using it. Words

In the end, he used the real name of the law to describe what the law actually does:

Parental rights in the Education Act now prohibit classroom instruction on ‘sexual orientation or gender identity’ in grades three through K and any instruction ‘it is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate’. It is now up to the state to update and define these values. The law allows parents to file lawsuits against school districts that violate these policies

He denounced the “critics” of the law without his knowledge, claiming that they were “Arguing that this would marginalize LGBTQ families and prevent schools from helping students in need.”

Meanwhile, on CBS Evening News, Anchor Norah O’Donnell briefly covered the news that Descentis had signed the bill. Just like his ABC opponents, he also identified the law as “controversial” and claimed leftist speaking points. “Critics don’t call it a gay bill and say it marginalizes LGBTQ + people.”

NBC Nightly News Anchor Lester Holt described the law as “controversial” before going to reporter Sam Brock for a scene report from Florida. Brock has announced this “After weeks of debate, Governor Ron Desantis today signed the Education Rights Parental Rights Bill.” And note that Florida was governor “Surrounded by little kids” When signing the bill.

Much like other ABCs, Brock actually summed up the purpose of the bill “The law prohibits classroom instruction and conversations about the sexual orientation and gender identity of public school students in the third grade of kindergarten.”

Brock then reiterated the point of a well-known leftist media outlet that a kind of “culture war” was being waged to protect young children from being sexually assaulted:

Opposition groups called the bill a “gay bill,” which has sparked national outrage. Today, the governor and potential 2024 presidential candidate is once again at the forefront of America’s cultural war. Proponents say the law allows parents to decide when and how to introduce LGBTQ issues to their children.

He didn’t, after which he brought in a Democrat candidate for state office in Florida and allowed him to claim that the law would “Connect with our youth and the country that Florida is not the place for you, if you are different.”

“About fifteen states, from Tennessee to Louisiana, are now considering legislation to see how LGBTQ issues are addressed in the classroom,” Brock concluded his report, lamenting.

Fear! Fifteen more states will soon make sorting of small children illegal.

This explicit support for the sexual orientation of five-year-olds by the three networks was made possible by the approval of Salonpas on ABC, Crest on CBS and Prevagen on NBC. Their information is linked so that you can tell them what kind of programming funds they have.
