There's no getting off this crazy bus. In for a penny, in for a pound. And the legislative session is just getting started.
Oh, and don't get me started on the Don't Say Gay knock-offs. I've catalogued maybe twenty and counting, many of which would ban any discussion or depiction of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression at any grade level, K all the way to 12.
