Fuck Florida Republicans
If you liked the "Don't Say Gay" law you'll love the "Don't Say Menstruation" law!

After this, I reckon they'll focus on implementing laws in Florida to resume burning suspected "witches" and "LGBT supporters" at the stake. I'm not joking.

We'll just get a whole new underground lexicon springing up around it, and tampons will become schoolyard hustler kid goods. Never underestimate the savvy of youngsters and of women.

flori-duh really is a hateful & toxic mess, folks!
Avoid it at all costs, i.e. no damned tourism $$$ to be spent there if you are alarmed by the authoritarian trends in that hole!

I wonder how many of these guys have red wings. I’ll bet I have way more pairs than most of these fascists do.

If voters under thirty ever showed up and voted none of this could ever happen, but as we know, they NEVER WILL.

Does that mean we don’t get to see the 1946 DisneyKotex film The Story of Menstruation? Asking for a friend, Signed, Fifth Grade Floridian I’d copy the link about the film, but Mother won’t show me how By the way, those brown paper towels in the girls bathroom I had to steal and use them up this week because Aunt Flo came to visit

Outrageous. That guy isn't someone to be talking about girls getting their period. What the hell is happening there? The other laws they're trying to impose are scary too. What is the breaking point going to be? Where are the Democrats with money and a voice. Why aren't they speaking out. Don't say gay, don't say you have your period, don't read this book or that book, don't have drag shows in adult environments. Seriously bordering on fascism.

If this law passes, what would happen if a girl is having her period during class? Would the staff escort her to an armed compound of menstrual huts on the opposite side of the campus?

We'll have remenstruation camps for uppity girls who insist on becoming women.

I think the teenage girls of Flori-DUH should get a bunch of tampons, bring them to the statehouse, and thrown them at the Republicans there while chanting "PLUG IT UP, PLUG IT UP!"

Just wait and see; the next Florida bill drafted will criminalize parents for teaching their kids sex education (or anything else deemed immoral according to Christian beliefs). This would allow CPS to take the kids away to a detention center where they have to work various sub-minimum wage jobs to pay for room and board. In other words, the Victorian workhouse of the 1800s will be making a big comeback.

No man has any business doing that, unless they're a licensed doctor or a single father with no female relatives/partner around. And even then, it's weird.

Conservatives are OBSESSED with young girls and gay men. Unsettling if you ask me.

r26 Tbf, this article title is a bit disingenuous. The bill only allows sex-ed from 6th grade to 12th grade. Opponents of the bill (Democrats) then decided to mention that because of this limit, girls in 5th grade won't be able to discuss their periods with their teachers. Period discussion wasn't at the forefront of their mind when they drafted the bill. This is a sensationalist and very convenient detail for the bill's opponents to hyper-focus on to draw attention to, what appears to be, something they disagree with. And that something is students in grades 5 and under being given sex-ed.
When you look at it from that standpoint, it's even more strange.

[quote]During a Wednesday House Education Quality Subcommittee, [bold]Rep. Ashley Viola Gantt (D) asked McClain if this bill would prohibit girls younger than 6th grade from discussing their periods in school.[/bold]
[quote]“Does this bill prohibit conversations about menstrual cycles ― because we know that typically the ages is between 10 and 15 ― so if little girls experience their menstrual cycle in fifth grade or fourth grade, will that prohibit conversations from them since they are in the grade lower than sixth grade?” Gantt asked McClain during the committee hearing.
SHE was thinking about girls younger than 6th grade talking about their periods. Not him. He just answered her question.

Women & girls need always to be able to discuss sexual & reproductive health in the open. It's a part of liberation.
