Homosexual rights advocates are not going to give up on the opportunity to groom young children without a fight. The gay/transgender lifestyle needs more recruits to the gay lifestyle, and it sees public school children – your own children, perhaps – as fair game.

Gay advocates sued Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on March 31 in an attempt to block a new law in that state which bans classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity for children younger than fourth grade, reports CBS News.

The controversy over the law has shone a new light on what homosexual teachers and staff and their allies do to kids in schools on a daily basis around the country, forcing them into sexual situations, separating them from their parents and families, leading them to question their own sexuality and in some cases even driving them toward destructive surgeries and drug treatments.

Critics misleadingly call it the “Don’t Say Gay” law and claim its intent is to marginalize LGBTQ people and their families. The suit filed in federal court in Tallahassee on behalf of Equality Florida and Family Equality claims that the law violates the rights of free speech, equal protection and due process of students and families.

“The United States Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed that LGBTQ people and their families are at home in our constitutional order,” the challenge reads. “The State of Florida has no right to declare them outcasts, or to treat their allies as outlaws, by punishing schools where someone dares to affirm their identity and dignity.”

The lawsuit goes on to say that the new law deliberately employs broad terms and opens the door to arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement, empowering parents to be roving monitors who can sue school boards for damages based on any perceived violation.

DeSantis and other Republicans continue to describe the rules as reasonable, saying children should learn about sexual orientation and gender identity from their families and not in schools.

“We will make sure that parents can send their kids to school to get an education, not an indoctrination,” the governor said when he signed it into law this week.
