LINK Florida Senate Passes "Don't Say Gay" Bill, Frustrating Disney Employees

(Disney has a long history of hiring lots of gay employees for their creative talents and friendliness, but then also tends not to speak publicly on fay issues and pay their employees less money, because they "should feel honored to work for Disney".)

“The magic has died for me, and the little queer kid being beaten for being queer is crying and alone again," one former Disney employee said.

Disney employees — ranging from characters in the theme parks to writers on their TV shows — are speaking out against their employer after reports the company donated money to politicians sponsoring the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill.

The Florida Senate passed the legislation on Tuesday by just five votes. It previously contained a provision that would have forced teachers in Florida to notify parents of students’ sexual orientation, but that amendment was withdrawn. Now the bill bans "classroom instruction" on sexual orientation or gender identity for students in kindergarten through third grade and teaching “in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students.”

Disney paid Florida Republican senators to do things for them. They don't care what else they do

Vague and purposely so! Who decides what is age appropriate? Parents? Legislators? Judges? For Republicans, any discussion of sexuality is age inappropriate at any age! Unless they are checking women for pregnancy or outlawing female oriented medical treatment.
