Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick Says He Wants to Create Don’t Say Gay Bill For the State of Texas

A little more than a week ago, Florida Governor signed the state’s Don’t Say Gay Bill. The bill has reignited the Republican culture war against the LGBTQ+ community. And despite the controversy, Trumpy politicians around the country are hoping to get in on the act themselves.

In a campaign email sent out on Monday, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick laid out 80 goals for his next term. And one of the top priorities, according to Patrick, is creating his state’s own version of the controversial bill.

Patrick said the aim of the Florida bill is to ensure that, “schools cannot sexualize children in elementary school.” He continued, “I will make this law a top priority in the next session. This issue will be addressed in our interim Education Committee hearings under Parental Rights.”

Val Benevidez, of the Texas Freedom Network, says of the Florida Bill:

“Gender expression by children is not something that is scary or harmful. What is scary is that political activists are grasping at power by overstepping into the lives of Texas families and education of students. While politicians use hate speech that is far from center to harm our vulnerable youth, we will continue to love our children and make sure that all families are uplifted in public life.”

The Republican politician also began his email by attacking the Disney corporation. Disney’s objection to the Florida bill has enraged Conservatives. The title of the message was, “I AM SO DONE WITH DISNEY,” and Patrick called for a boycott of the company.
