Florida Bans Schools From Teaching About the Existence of Seahorses to Prevent Young Boys from Getting Pregnant

Via The Washington Post

TALLAHASSEE, FL — Calling the move essential in the battle against the leftists' mind-warping of America’s youth, Florida state legislators passed a bill early Friday morning barring K-12 classrooms from teaching about the existence of seahorses to prevent liberal educators from planting the seeds of pregnancy in the minds of little boys.

“Today we take back the right to what thoughts go into our children’s heads,” said the bill’s sponsor Rep. Joe Harding, “Little boys should not have to be indoctrinated with WOKE ideology delivered subconsciously via seahorse. They should be taught about seahorses when the time is right, when they’re fully developed and can make decisions on their own, not when they’re at such an impressionable age.”

The legislation quickly gained national attention and even prompted a response from the Biden Administration. “We vehemently oppose the decision made by Florida’s legislature and we stand with the marine community,” said Vice President Kamala Harris from the steps of the National Aquarium, “Our thoughts are with those students who are themselves or have seahorses in their family.”

At the printing of this newsletter, Florida state legislators were seen gathering at the state capitol to draft another bill; this time banning educators from teaching about the existence of kangaroos after receiving reports of a four-year-old boy pointing to a picture of the marsupial and asking his mother if one day he could have a pouch too.
