Texas Lawmaker Introduces Bill Banning Grooming of Children in Public Schools

'The sexualization of our children must stop...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) A Texas lawmaker introduced a parental rights bill that would prohibit grooming of K-8 students in all public schools.

The bill, HB 1155, would ban school districts from teaching about sexual orientation or so-called “gender identity” to students, according to the Daily Wire.

The legislation would also require leftist school districts to inform parents about their child’s mental, emotional or physical well-being, including information about what health services their kids receive at school. Parents would have the opportunity to decline health-related services for their child.

Rep. Jared Patterson, a Republican, introduced the bill. According to his office’s press release, it was created to protect “the youngest and most vulnerable children from unscientific, inaccurate and inappropriate information.”

Patterson talked in details about how important the bill was.

“The sexualization of our children must stop. Parents and taxpayers have spoken loudly over the past year-plus. The message is no more radical ideology in the classroom – particularly when it comes to inappropriate or obscene content,” he said.

“Given what we’ve uncovered, this bill is needed to provide parents with the maximum transparency and control over health-related services in our schools.”

Patterson’s office described the bill as an “improved” version of Florida’s parental rights bill, which was called “Don’t Say Gay” by crazy leftists. The Florida bill prohibits leftist teachers from grooming kids, too. The difference is that the bill protects children only up to the third grade. Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the bill in March.

According to the poll from the same month, a majority of the American public supports Florida’s parental rights law, including majorities of both Republican and Democrat voters.

If it becomes law, the Texas bill would take effect this fall — the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year.
