Florida has become ground zero in the cultural battle over gender radicalism. Gov. Ron DeSantis does not disappoint. Staking ground on principle while taking principled policy action is the strongest mark of courageous leaders. America needs more of them.
To defeat destructive gender ideology, governors of courage like DeSantis must be willing to lead the fight, not sit on the sidelines. They must work to unmask its dangers and act to protect women, children, and the rights of parents over institutions bent on indoctrination. That is exactly why Gov. DeSantis and Florida officials get high marks. What sets DeSantis apart is an ability to communicate clearly about fundamental principles backed by clear policy actions that address the problem. Here are some:
First principle in Science: Physical differences between women and men are enduring.
Policy action: Enact Florida’s Fairness in Women’s Sports Act
First principle in Medicine: Do No Harm.
First principle in Education: Teach academics, not ideology.
First principle in Parenting: Protect your child from dangerous influences.
Ladies and gentlemen, Mickey and Minnie Mouse know who the boys and girls are. And so did Walt Disney. Walt Disney’s brilliant version of wholesome family-style entertainment that sparked childhood imagination, made good triumph over evil, and offered endless days of make-believe fun is something on which we all grew up. But we knew it wasn’t real.
21st Century Disney is bent on turning childhood imagination into realized, sexualized fantasy. Disney’s President attests to being “the mother of two queer children” identifying as pansexual and transgender. How did they get that way?
Disney executives are feeding young minds with gender radicalism as a normal and necessary experience for all children. Telling boys they can be girls is totally okay – in fact should be promoted. In woke Disney World, focusing messages on gender fantasy and sexual attractions is what every impressionable four-year-old needs to hear.
Let’s be real. Poisoning the innocent minds of children, whether with pornography or trans- and sexual pathologies, should come at a high price. If this is the Disney agenda, it’s time for Disney to stand on its own and face the consequences. Gov. DeSantis and Florida elected officials are revoking Disney’s special self-governing status over its 40-square-mile district and face the real accountability of state regulators.
Levers like this might force Disney to return to its Small World roots, but in the meantime, parents must also say no to the Disney vacation and opt for Florida’s beautiful beaches instead. And please turn off the Disney channel and PBS children’s programming which routinely pushes gender ideology including the idea of being “nonbinary” and depicting characters with trans flags and mastectomy scars.
Real Florida is working to take back childhood innocence from the all-to-real evil of gender radicalism. What’s happening in your state?
