Gay substitute teacher canned for passing out rainbow pride bracelets to students
· · Apr 3, 2022 ·

If you're wondering why Florida went through all the trouble to restrict when and where educators can talk to kids about sex and LGBTQ stuff—well, here's a good example:

A gay Ohio substitute teacher was fired last week after handing out Pride bracelets to high school students, the latest example of LGBTQ discussion in schools sparking controversy amid heated debates in school boards and states around the country.

Jay Bowman said in a Facebook post he was fired for handing out First Capital Pride bracelets to his students at Huntington High School in Chillicothe, Ohio. Bowman said he also answered questions from students about the LGBTQ advocacy group.

"If a kid has questions, if a kid wants honesty, I don't think I should be forbidden from providing that," Bowman told CNN affiliate WSYX.

"I don't think I should be forbidden..." Well, sorry, Mr. Bowman, but apparently you are.

Admittedly, these were high school students, not very young children—the Florida law forbids teachers from discussing sexuality only with younger students.

But so what? There's NO real reason a teacher should be talking about sexuality (and pushing it on the kids, no less) even with high schoolers. It's outside of their purview. It's not their job. They are not these kids' parents.

Cut it out!
