This bill is too vague

By not saying exactly what "sexually explicit" material is, it leaves too much room for interpretation. Is the showing of couples explicit? Or will school boards single out trans and queer couples and identities as explicit. There is nothing explicit about someone being their true selves. And this slippery slope could lead to even more censorship in the future, for the protection of all students please do not listen to those suggesting anti-racism and gender identity should be considered explicit.
