The lawsuit challenges Florida’s anti-grooming law, according to The New York Times.
The homosexual duo’s lawsuit seeks to force children to have access to their book and to find the anti-grooming law unconstitutional.
“Our book has been banned because Tango has two dads,” said Justin Richardson, one of the authors of the book.
Richardson acknowledged that the book had been challenged regularly, but that it had not been restricted on a permanent basis. Sherri Owens, a spokeswoman for the Lake County school district, said that the district removed the book for legal reasons.
“We removed access to And Tango Makes Three for our kindergarten through third-grade students in alignment with Florida House Bill 1557, which at the time prohibited classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity for those grade levels,” she said in an email.
The story was widely mocked on social media, according to Twitchy.
A Twitter account that goes by jimtreacher.substack.com noticed a pattern in the arguments of leftists.
“‘Restricting access.’ Same rhetoric Dems use when we don’t want to pay for their birth control,” he tweeted in response to the NYTimes article.

“LOL all books must be in all libraries or it’s unconstitutional. Basic stuff folks,” one critic tweeted, while another noted that “There is no ‘right’ to have your book available anywhere you want it.”
Vanessa Atlanta Wisedog pointed out that this lawsuit, if it were to win, would backfire.
“We now demand a copy of Mein Kampf be in every school library including first grade,” the account tweeted, commenting on what a lack of literary standards could mean. “Be careful what you wish for.”
