Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday signed into law the Parental Rights in Education Act, banning classroom discussions on so-called gender identity and sexual orientation for children in kindergarten through third grade.
At the signing ceremony, DeSantis addressed celebrities in Hollywood opposing the parental rights legislation, saying he’ll wear their disapproval like a “badge of honor.”
“Someone told me that there’s even people in Hollywood that are opposed to providing protections for parents and enforcing parents rights,” the Republican said. “The one thing I’ll say about that is, if the people who held up degenerates like Harvey Weinstein as exemplars and as heroes and all that, if those are the types of people opposing us on parents rights, I wear that like a badge of honor.”
“I don’t care what corporate media outlets say, I don’t care what Hollywood says, I don’t care what big corporations say,” DeSantis continued. “Here I stand. I’m not backing down.”
The law bans “teachers in kindergarten through third grade from providing instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation, require schools to notify parents if there has been any change in a student’s physical, emotional, or mental wellbeing, and would also provide legal recourse to parents to sue if they believe a school has violated any of those agreements,” The Daily Wire reported.
