The basis of democracy is freedom of speech. We all have the right to speak freely without fear of reprisals from the government. However, that does not mean that one person has the right to force their views on the other person.
Earlier this week, it was decided that students in Kentucky schools will no longer be taught about puberty. While the subtext is the right’s standard anti-transgender agenda, all children (regardless of who they identify) will be denied this basic aspect of their education.
Puberty is a natural part of life. As much as these lawmakers try to outlaw it from the classroom, it is going to happen. These kids will ask questions, one way or another. If they don’t get the answers from their parents or teachers, who will they get them from? The internet or an ill-informed peer? I shudder to think of the consequences of this legislation.
Meanwhile, Marjorie Taylor Greene (who has become a recurring subject on this blog) has again made headlines for the wrong reasons. When the news broke about Massachusetts Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira, she stood by him. He is accused of leaking classified documents and sharing them on the internet. Considering her past actions, this is not unsurprising.
We should all be concerned about what information is in those documents and who has access to them. There are many in this world who would be more than happy to use that data for God knows what. The fact that her misaligned priorities have endangered this country and everyone who lives here is more than alarming.
Just another reason to vote them out come the next election cycle.
