“Don’t Say Gay” Bill Introduced in Georgia Senate after Florida’s Passage

No less than 24 hours after the passage of Florida’s dangerous and inhuman “Don’t Say Gay Bill” a Georgia Republican senator has introduced Senate Bill 613 would prohibit discussions of gender identity and sexual orientation in school classrooms at the primary grade level and would also ban teaching that one race or sex is superior to another; that a person should be discriminated against because of their race or ethnicity; and that slavery represents the “true founding” of the U.S.

While it is doubtful that will pass the Senate in time for Tuesday 3/15, or Crossover Day, which is when all legislation introduced during this session must pass one chamber before it has a chance of becoming law.  Sen. Carden Summers said he introduced the bill as a “conversation starter” and because parents also need to know what private schools are teaching their children and “You can’t use the woke philosophy while using taxpayer funding,” he says.

Another Georgia bill is also targeting LGBT youth is also making its way through the General Assembly. S.B. 435, now under consideration in the House, requires students to play on teams that match their assigned sex at birth, meaning that transgender students won’t be allowed to play on teams that match their gender identity.

During fiscal year 2021, the film and television industry set a new record with $4 billion in direct spending on productions in Georgia.

Lets hope that these productions are better allies in the end than Disney.
