Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick wants Texas to replicate Florida’s controversial law that prohibits schools from teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity to students from kindergarten through the third grade.

In an email to campaign supporters late Monday, Patrick said he would make the bill a “top priority” during the next legislative session in January. The law has garnered backlash from Democrats and civil rights advocates, who say the legislation marginalizes LGBTQ students and may chill all discussion of sexuality in the classroom.

They call it the “Don’t Say Gay” law.

But Patrick said the measure “simply says schools cannot sexualize children in elementary school.” Florida Republicans have said the bill leaves discussions about sexual orientation and identity to parents, rather than teachers.

Patrick’s promise to mimic the Florida law also targeted Disney, which has publicly opposed the legislation and asked for its repeal. The lieutenant governor is calling on Texans to boycott Disney “until they change their corporate philosophy.”

“People must see what has been going on behind the Mickey curtain,” Patrick wrote. “I know your kids and grandchildren will be disappointed and may not understand. But, would you rather have them indoctrinated by Disney radicals?”

Earlier Monday, Patrick released interim charges for the state Senate, asking lawmakers to study various subjects over the next several months before session begins. He’d included “parent empowerment” in that list, asking the education committee to “make recommendations to enable parents to exert a greater influence on their child’s learning environment.”

Patrick said that charge will allow legislators to get to work on the new law later this year. The Florida version is being challenged in court.

The lieutenant governor’s commitment to the “Don’t Say Gay” law is Texas Republicans’ latest move to more tightly regulate what is taught in public schools. Patrick’s charges also included a request to review school library books, after GOP lawmakers asked districts to remove “inappropriate” material covering sexuality and racism.

The Legislature approved a bill last year limiting the way K-12 teachers discuss racism in the classroom, and Patrick has suggested firing public university professors who teach “critical race theory.”

The proposal also comes as civil rights advocates fight other Texas policies that target LGBTQ children. Last month, Gov. Greg Abbott directed the state’s child welfare agency to open child abuse investigations into families who provide gender-affirming care, such as hormone therapies, to their transgender children.

A court has temporarily stopped those investigations, but litigation is ongoing. Texas has initiated at least nine inquiries so far.



Comments:
Please stop calling it “Don’t Say Gay” law. That language is not in the legislation. It is strictly designed to prevent sexual grooming of THREE TO NINE YEAR OLDS by perverts who enable pedophilia.

Unless you want your 3-9 year old children and grand children taught about gay sex, please stop using their inaccurate framing language / catering to the far left gender bending woke crowd that does.
