To normal people everywhere, it seems like a perfectly sensible policy point to ban discussions about sex in taxpayer-funded public schools for children under the age of 9.
For the Democrats in 2022, protecting the rights of adults to talk to kids about their sex lives is a hill they’re willing to die on, because that’s seriously where we’re at as a country right now.
That is, Democrats other than New York Rep. Tom Suozzi, who is apparently sick and tired of drinking the crazy Kool Aid and, one can only imagine, wants to get back to the days when Republicans and Democrats differed on things like tax rates and defense budgets and not the inane argument as to whether or not its OK to teach first graders about masturbation or gender identity.
On Thursday, Suozzi told the radio station WABC that Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill is, in fact, “a very reasonable law not to try to get kids in kindergarten to be talking about sex” because the man is clearly still in possession of what we used to call back in the day basic freaking common sense.
Thank you, good sir.

“I wish it wouldn’t become such a hot button issue where people are just attacking each other—it’s just common sense,” he said. “I’m very much in favor of equal rights, I’m very much in favor of treating gay people fairly and treating them like the human beings they are.”
And he’s absolutely right.
It doesn’t matter what your values might be about sexuality for adults; it is absolutely insane to insist that public school teachers not only can, but absolutely should be teaching young children about sex, as though that’s what today’s sex-crazed, drug-addicted, mental illness-ravaged youth need.
Suozzi, who is running for New York Governor, clarified in a statement to WABC that he’s pro-LGBT, he’s just not pro-grooming little kids with taxpayers funds (in so many words).
“Let me be clear, as I said on the radio, I fully support LGBTQ and equal rights,” the statement read. “I absolutely do not support the Florida governor in most policies he supports. But I think it is reasonable that kids in kindergarten and first grade are not taught about their sexual orientation in school…Maybe this isn’t a politically correct position but it certainly seems like common sense to me.”
On the other hand, his competition, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, who replaced disgraced former Governor Andrew Cuomo after he resigned over sexual harassment allegations, called the law “hateful, discriminatory, and dangerous.”
Good on this dude for standing up for common sense and seeing through the absurd smokescreens the rest of the Democrats use to cover for the absurdity of defending sexually explicit lessons for children who are still mastering the ABCs and washing your hands after going to the bathroom.
The question is, will more Democrats have the guts to stand with him and put an end to the party’s absurd and abhorrent quest to indoctrinate elementary school students with radical, far-left sexual ethics?
Time will tell.
