Don't Say Period

Florida. Where else?

A Florida Republican seeking to restrict sex education for students confirmed in a committee hearing on Wednesday that his bill would also ban young girls from discussing their menstrual cycles with school officials.

Rep. Stan McClain’s (R) proposed legislation, House Bill 1069, seeks to restrict the educational materials used in state schools, which critics have likened to book banning. The bill requires course material and instruction on sexually transmitted diseases, health education or material on human sexuality to “only occur in grades 6 through 12,” according to the legislation.

Yet they can see xxx rated porn and far worse on the internet.

This is just the first beginning step to control of all information regardless of age or information types.

If you have any kind of content it won't be posted until it's been censored (carefully worded as "reviewed"). If it's not "reviewed" then it can not be posted. Guess would does the "reviewing"? 🤷🏻‍♂️

You can not protect your kids that way without affecting everyone else.

@DeWayfarer Unfortunately, it's not the beginning.

@Northwest that's relative. The end goal is all information. That will take decades to "review".

So this is the "relative" beginning.

So you know we did have censorship in the sixties and seventies far, far worse than today. I was around for it. Any kind of sex education was unheard of. We just didn't have it. In fact we had a religion classes in public schools.

I was one of the few that whose parents excused me from the Christian classes my father had to sign it.

I made certain it was my father that signed the excuse.

Given the scope of the rest of the bill, it would be surprising if students will even know what to ask. McClain’s measure would dramatically limit what can be taught about sexual health. Teachers would have to say that sex is only male or female, and that the “reproductive roles are binary, stable, and unchangeable.” A known, demonstrably false assertion.

Any sex education would be abstinence-only, and the bill includes language that makes sex and desire sound shameful. That's been going well for years. Just ask the Appalachians.

Parents would have the right to object to and contest any course material that they think is not age-appropriate, is pornographic, or contains sexual content that is not purely educational. If a special committee agrees with the complaint, the material will be pulled from the school. Yup, that's Karen telling you what [i]her [/i]child will and won't stand.

Parents could also see the school library catalog and prevent their children from accessing any of the material. Because nothing makes and effective quorum like a brunch of parents educated by the same failing system. Can anyone say "conditioned pattern of behavior?"

Yes.. Why should males have to hear about such yucky things at all. I am sure all good Republican Ladies will agree to either have their daughters neutered surgically to rid their daughters of the necessity of mentioning this subject at all. Or if not, then unneutared girls should be kept out of school completely at the onset of puberty until they can be married off, when they wont need an education anyway...
(With any luck this would thin the Republican herd considerably)😷

I think it's time for all sane people to just evacuate Florida.
