The suing parties include Washington D.C., New Jersey, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New York and Oregon, according to Axios.
The amicus brief stated that the above-mentioned blue states’ “policies allow educators to address LGBTQ issues.” Accordingly, the brief argued that “these policies demonstrate that there is no legitimate reason to ban mentioning them.” This, of course, assumes that Floridians want their children educated in the same way as children in leftist states.
The lawsuit reads that the aforementioned blue states “also ordinarily leave educational decisions to schools and teachers, rather than allowing schools to be haled into court over even minor instructional choices.”
The blue states thus fail to noticed (or are gaslighting those who will not fail to see) that teaching Kindergarteners to 3rd graders about any sexual act is not a “minor instructional choice.” Indeed, for non-groomers and normal people it is apparent that parents have a duty to keep perverts away from their children.
The suit also whined that DeSantis’s Florida “stands alone in its censorship of instruction related to LGBTQ issues,” and its law is unique in “its imposition of legal liability on school districts that do not censor LGBTQ issues.”
The lawsuit claimed that the act will “stigmatize and harm” the LGBT community.
Axios reported that Keith Ellison, the Minnesota attorney general, said, “It’s my job to stand up for people who are harmed by discrimination — and what harms Florida kids, parents, and teachers harms every one of us.”
The lawsuit, unlike Ellison, pretends to be about a relevant concern to the blue states. It suggests that some of the homosexuals and deviants the Florida law “stigmatize[s] and harm[s]” may end up in their states and cost them money to justify bringing suit over an issue outside their jurisdiction.
The lawsuit is the second public assault on Florida over its anti-grooming bill this week. The Department of Education threatened Florida’s funding over the bill earlier.
