Anti-LGBTQ+ bills in schools: Multiple states consider restrictions

Anti-LGBTQ+ bills in schools: Multiple states consider restrictions – In at least 15 states, new laws aimed at stifling discussions on LGBTQ+ topics in schools are being considered. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has compiled data that shows some states are even seeking to go further than Florida, which recently passed its ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.

Scope of anti-LGBTQ+ bills:

Several states have introduced legislation that would restrict discussions on sexual identity, gender identity, and sexual orientation in schools without parental consent. Some of these bills even require parental notification for lessons that involve gender identity or sexual matters.

Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill:

The original ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill in Florida was signed into law in 2022. This bill bans discussions on LGBTQ+ topics in classrooms between kindergarten and third grade. After third grade, these topics must be “age appropriate,” although the bill does not define this term.

Repercussions of anti-LGBTQ+ bills:

According to non-profit think tank Movement Advancement Project, the Florida law has acted as a catalyst for bills across other states in the US which are currently being considered. Gillian Branstetter, a communications strategist for the ACLU, believes that these bills would deny children equal chances to learn and reflect a belief that queer identities are a contagion while straight, cisgender identities are somehow more pure or correct.

Opposition to anti-LGBTQ+ bills:

The Trevor Project, a mental health and suicide prevention charity, has criticized these bills, stating that LGBTQ+ youth deserve better. The Biden administration has also opposed these bills, with President Biden stating that every member of the LGBTQI+ community, especially the kids who will be impacted by these hateful bills, should know that they are loved and accepted just as they are.

Conclusion:

The introduction of these anti-LGBTQ+ bills has caused concern among LGBTQ+ activists and the queer community. Critics argue that censorship and homogeneity benefit no one while denying all students an equal chance to learn, grow, and thrive.
