The Heated 14-Hour Debate Draws Hundreds

In yet another shocking display of the progressive agenda running amok, the Miami-Dade County School Board had to devote 14 drawn-out hours last Wednesday to decide against recognizing October as LGBTQ+ History Month.

Passionate testimonies were given, with over 100 participants, ranging from parents and students to educators and non-profit representatives.

The proponents of this proposal had the audacity to equate LGBTQ+ History Month with the significance of Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month.

Do parents really believe their LGBTQ+ child would somehow be demeaned by not having a month dedicated to their sexual orientation plastered across the school’s calendar?

It seems like this wave of victimization knows no bounds.

Meanwhile, the clear-headed critics deemed it an unnecessary recognition.

Ultimately, the proposal was shot down in a 5-3 vote around 1:15 in the morning.

It is a victory for those who believe that our children should be shielded from the over-sexualization that seems to permeate every crevice of our society.

LGBTQ+ History Month in Florida schools has become a bone of contention ever since Florida wisely passed the Parental Rights in Education Act.

And yes, it’s been nicknamed the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.” But guess what? It’s about ensuring that our young kids from kindergarten to third grade aren’t bombarded with concepts that might be a tad too advanced for them.

Outside this marathon meeting, there were several groups present, including Moms for Liberty. Some of them even took time to kneel in prayer, hoping for common sense to prevail.

As expected, the social media platforms have been set ablaze with reactions to the school board’s decision.

One astute commenter noted, ‘No hate towards the LGBTQ community, but I live in Miami. If I have to pull my kids out of school for the entire month until it passes over, I will.’

Isn’t it telling how certain radical ideas are being pushed so aggressively that parents would consider pulling their kids out of school?
