The governor of Florida is flushing out sexual groomers of children, and making it look almost easy.

A number of “civil rights groups” have now joined the National Center for Lesbian Rights and families in Florida to sue over the state’s new Parental Rights in Education law, plainly revealing themselves to be invested in the early sexualization of other people’s children.

Filed April 14 in federal court, the lawsuit accuses the new law of being “an unlawful attempt to stigmatize, silence, and erase LGBTQ people in Florida’s public schools,” because the plaintiffs can no longer tell schoolchildren from kindergarten to fourth grade about the plaintiffs’ own sexuality, and about gender-bending.

The suit was filed by attorneys for Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP for the lesbian group as well as a number of students, parents and one teacher, reports Politico. Gov. Ron DeSantis, the Florida Department of Education, the state Board of Education and some local school boards are among the defendants.

In their 80-page complaint, opponents of the new Florida law call it “extraordinary government intrusion on the free speech and equal protection rights” in public schools, and argue that the legislation violates the First and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and federal Title IX rules.

Filed in Florida’s northern district in Tallahassee, the complaint also argues that LGBTQ students and parents are “unsure about whether they can express or discuss their identities.” It adds that they “worry about detention or other possible discipline or exclusion that may result if they do.”

In other words, little kids want to talk about sex with well-meaning liberal adults, who are just trying to let them.

The suit accuses the legislation of “vagueness” in keeping public school adults from talking to your kids about sexual perversions, and alleges that the law puts the local plaintiffs and other members of the LGBTQ community in danger and claims that the “subordination and erasure of LGBTQ life” that the law “seeks to achieve” has already begun, imposing “concrete harms on countless children and families in Florida.”

In a statement obtained by Politico, a DeSantis representative responded by saying that the law “does not single out any particular group, orientation, or identity.”
