It's pretty simple actually. Captured perfectly..........

Not that DeSantis ignored the rhetorical side of the controversy. He, more than any other public figure, put into circulation the term “groomers” to label the LGBTQ activists who are strangely eager to teach very young children about the mysteries of sexual attraction. The term perfectly captures the sense that the activists want to prepare the ground for sexual experimentation and, at a minimum, encourage “fluidity” of sexual appetites. To call these would-be sex-ed teachers “groomers” is to spotlight their bad faith. They say they are doing this for the sake of the children, but to most of us it looks like they are doing it for the sake of an ideological movement and sometimes acting on their own mordant desires.

That DeSantis captured this in one word is a triumph of concision. Not many parents want their children consigned to groomers. The left’s opposition to the “Parental Rights in Education” bill came down to sneering at it as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which gained traction with hardly anyone outside the ranks of the activists. Newsom nonetheless jumped aboard. In March he tweeted that “the door is open” to Disney employees in Florida to move to California to escape the horrors of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, California being “the state that actually represents the values of your workers.”


I’m not clear that portraying the Disney workers in Florida as having these particular “values” was helpful to the entertainment company, but it surely was helpful to Newsom in furthering his national profile as a progressive advocate in step with leftist gender politics.

Nothing wrong with what they do in Cali.

As long as the people vote honestl, they get what they vote for, and deserve.

Easy, relatively speaking, to move from Cali if you don’t like it.

These aren't even LGBTQ activists. They're trans extremists that won't be happy until every kid changes genders.

That's a good point. Read the other day that some in that community took offense of the saying, "there is no LGBTQ without the T"
