As the reality of the “Don’t Say Gay” legislation disseminates among school boards, it’s increasingly more evident that Florida is facing its Taliban moment. When the Taliban recaptured control of the Afghanistan government, it began reinstating the traditional Taliban limitations on female education, women’s rights, and sexual freedom. With Republican control secured over the governorship, Senate and House, legislation such as “Don’t Say Gay” and now the “Stop Woke Act” veer progressively more conservative. As school boards begin purging books from our school libraries that challenge anything other than traditional male/female relationships, the ramifications of this ideological political shift have intensified in broad daylight.
