DeSantis signs anti-grooming bill

Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) signed a new bill to stop the grooming of little children in sexual matters in school.

Yesterday Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) signed into law the Parental Rights and Education Act of 2022. Critics of the legislation call it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, deliberately misconstruing the bill’s intent and effect. The effect its authors hope it will have, will be to stop and prevent the systematic grooming of little children to submit to the warping of their minds – and their effective sterilization.

What’s in this new law that Gov. DeSantis signed

The Associated Press was good enough to quote the new law directly:

Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in:

Kindergarten through grade 3, or in

A manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.

“Sexual orientation,” of course, includes homosexuality and bisexuality. “Gender identity” refers to transsexualism – the notion that a biological boy might be a girl “trapped in a boy’s body.” (Or the other way around.)

The usual suspects have castigated this bill since it came up for debate in the Florida legislature. They call it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, to make one think the police will arrest any teacher who utters the word gay in class. As any reader can plainly see, this is not correct. This law does not even mention the word “gay” in its text. Nor does it make it unlawful, nor prescribe any penalties, for anyone who utters that word, or any other word:

  • In class,
  • Out of class but in school,
  • In public, or
  • In private.

So if Mark Hamill, when he repeated the word “Gay” in a tweet, thought someone would arrest him and thus give him a cause célèbre, he was mistaken. Never did Gov. DeSantis or his legislative allies intend any such outcome.

What does the governor want to see happen?

Here is what Governor DeSantis does not want to see happen in Florida schools. He does not want to see anyone grooming a child to:

  1. Grant sexual favors to an adult or teen-ager,
  2. Develop a preference for intimate contact with members of the child’s own sex, or
  3. Submit to surgical mutilation or hormonal poisoning because some adult suggested they may be of a sex other than that to which the doctor assigned him or her at birth.

If you think such things do not and cannot happen, get over that idea. All three things can and do happen. “Sextra credit” became a by-word on World Net Daily many years ago. But even that isn’t the worst part. We deal here with schools teaching about hormonal poisoning masquerading as therapy, without the consent or even the knowledge of the parents. Furthermore, this is all of a piece with the nationwide advocacy of medically graphic sex education in school.

Governor DeSantis should press for a law reaching further than this one. This should go beyond K-3 and should go clear to K-8, to cover lower and middle school. Your editor did just fine with the addressing of sexuality in high school. Which, let’s remember, is when pupils start feeling their juices flowing anyway.

The media and entertainment morass

Of course, the deliberate distortion of the intent of this bill goes along with the media moral morass that has existed for more than ten years. And not only news media. The entertainment industry has gone full anti-moral on the people. We saw that Sunday evening during the Oscars, when we were not watching Will Smith pretend-slap Chris Rock for ratings.

More to the point: Governor DeSantis is doing exactly what a civilizational state must do. Remember: a civilizational state forms to protect its people, and their values. A society that permits the warping of young minds, and permits anyone to groom children to let someone use them or to make them think they can find joy in self-mutilation or poisoning, doesn’t live long. One reason it doesn’t live long is that it doesn’t reproduce.

Folks, population itself is a theater of war. Governor DeSantis has just secured at least at temporary victory in a skirmish in that war.

What adults do with themselves or one another, short of murder or some other violent attack, must remain their business. But what adult do with children is definitely the business of their parents. Some concepts must remain for adults only. Others might be appropriate in high school but not in lower or middle school.


The Florida Parental Rights in Education bill is a good start.CNAV hopes Governor DeSantis carries the battle further.

Something people need to remember is that the word “gay” means “happy”. It is a state of mind. It does not reference sexual attraction or behavior. People need to use the correct word in reference to the behavior people are trying to indoctrinate children with – homosexual, homosexuality, sodomy, sodomite, sodomize, and so on. Children have to be programmed, think Pavlov’s Dog, and exposed to behaviors or they will never chose them. And remember, humans come in male and female, and if thinks they are a different gender they are mentally ill, engaging in a scam of some sort, or both. Always remember, this is about promoting deviant abnormal behaviors.
