2.DeSantis grew agitated at the Florida Strawberry Festival when a reporter asked him about the phrase -- "Don't Say Gay" -- that critics have applied to the bill. "Does it say that in the bill? Does it say that in the bill? I'm asking you to tell me what's in the bill, because you are pushing false narratives," DeSantis said. "It doesn't matter what critics say." The law says: Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards. Do you agree with DeSantis that calling it the "Don't Say Gay" bill is pushing a false narrative?
