Florida’s young gays can breathe a little easier.
The state’s Senate yesterday passed unanimously a comprehensive, queer inclusive anti-bullying bill, which has been either years in the making. And you can be sure gay group Equality Florida’s leading lady, Nadine Smith, celebrated in epistolary style:
Thanks to the thousands of messages you sent to the Florida Senate and a last minute lobbying effort in Tallahassee, Senators heard our call and brought the long overdue Anti-Bullying bill up for a vote and passed it. Governor Crist has expressed support for the bill many times in the past and it now awaits his signature.
Equality Florida’s goal has always been to provide the strongest protections possible for Florida’s students, including LGBT students. Because of your commitment and persistence over the years, all of Florida’s students will be protected under this bill. In passing the bill the sponsors repeated again and again that this law protects LGBT students.
And they all lived happily ever after…
1) It’s a damn shame it has to be made into LAW before people realize that bullying kids who are LGBT is WRONG.
2) The hurt, wounded, bullied kid in me asks that you ignore my barely literate outburst because it’s really a good thing.
49 more states to go!
Sadly, Ronda Storms will no longer be allowed to pick on kids in schools who seem gay….ten bucks says she’s kicking herself in the ass right now.
