There have been many strong opinions regarding Florida's new Parental Rights in Education law. However, the White House Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg might have won the prize for the most outlandish one.
The new law, also sometimes referred to as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, was discussed when Buttigieg appeared on ABC's The View. The show's co-host Anna Navaro asked:
"Your husband, Chasten [Buttigieg], is a teacher, and he's been a vocal critic of what's going on in my state of Florida with the so-called 'Don't Say Gay' law, which he says will kill kids. Do you agree?"
After Navarro explained to the audience how the new law could be seen as offensive to gays and LGBTQ people, Buttigieg answered her question.
"Yeah, he's right, and I think every law ought to be judged for the effect it's going to have on real people in real life."
