    When Dolly starts advocating for Big Bro, not parents, to be teaching five years olds about lopping off their pee pees, I'm sure that The Federalist will take notice.

    Until then, this is a non sequitur.

    You Blue MAGAs just don't UNDERSTAND.

    Calm down Hts. Nobody's teaching kids to lop of their private parts (that's not how it's done anyways; they sort of invert it.) In fact most transpeople end up pursuing non-surgical solutions.

    It's that Big Brother presumes to say it, no matter what's being said.

    Passing laws that certain thoughts and ideas cannot be taught or expressed in schools is akin to book burning, railing against "fake news", "the stolen 2020 election" and the rest of the anti-fact, anti-knowledge conservative agenda.

    Oh, you GQP. How you manage to screw up basic facts. That’s okay. On this one, I’m giving you a pass.

    The Federalist led their coverage today with this blaring headline: “Cancel Your Disney Vacation And Go To Dollywood Instead.” What are they talking about? Why, Disney is that woke company that they want to punish because of all their pro-LGBTQ support, and they have had enough of it.

    While we are on the subject...
    Teacher of the year suspended for showing students a picture of her fiancée wins $100,000 settlement 🥂
    (CNN)A Texas art teacher who was placed on administrative leave after talking about "her future wife" in class hopes her settlement with a school district will change the lives of other LGBTQ people.

    Stacy Bailey, who was on paid leave, reached a $100,000 settlement with the Mansfield Independent School District last week, her attorney said.
    The district near Fort Worth agreed to remove the eight-month leave from her record, as well as offer mandatory training on LGBTQ issues to human resources and counseling staff in its schools.

    The two-time teacher of the year was giving a welcome back to school presentation in August 2017 to her class when she showed a photo of her and her then-fiancee dressed as characters from the movie "Finding Nemo," according to court documents obtained by CNN.

    A parent complained to the school, saying that Bailey was "promoting the homosexual agenda," according to court documents.

    Nah.

    The schools work for the parents and the children. This is not anti-knowledge conservative. It's anti Big Brother libertarian. And, I know from the pandemic, that you're not a big fan of liberty.

    But, I've got to ask. If the certain ideas expressed in schools is Christian prayer, is restricting it book burning?

    "But, I've got to ask. If the certain ideas expressed in schools is Christian prayer, is restricting it book burning?" --HtS

    😏 No, it's acknowledging that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion".

    Although the Constitution forbids public school teachers and officials from favoring (or denouncing) a religion or directing prayer in their official capacities, private religious speech is fully protected by the First Amendment under the "the freedom of speech" clause. Students can pray before exams or discuss religion in a non-official capacity.

    Prayer has never been disallowed in public schools. A faculty member leading prayer (which btw I've never understood since Jesus was clear that prayer should be done alone) is what isn't allowed, and IMO justifiably so.

    A teacher showing her class her same-sex wedding picture would be comparable to a Christian teacher telling her class that she goes to church.

    The majority of Americans moved gradually to feeling that some kind of action should be taken.

    Majority, eh? Some kind of action...

    That's a pleasant Blue MAGA myth...and extremely vague at that.

    But the issue increasingly divided them along partisan lines; denial became fundamental in right-wing thinking.

    Partisan line? There's no doubt that there are differences. Philosophical, perhaps, more than partisan.

    But, understand. Your side's problem has always been that, when you say either that it's too late or that we have to act NOW!, no one believes you, not anymore. Your side has proclaimed the sky to be falling too often.

    As I noted, people under 40 have been hearing that all their lives. Is climate change something to care about?, well, probably, but is it a crisis? Meh.
