Supporters of this Bill Should be Ashamed

"People who are not heterosexual should not be considered sexually explicit." Reading books with heterosexual relationships never made a gay person straight, just as reading books with homosexual characters will not make a straight person gay. It is clear that you do not care for the wellbeing of FCPS's LGBTQ+ students. They deserve more. Everyone deserves the right to be accepted who they are without fear of legislation that labels them as bad, illegal, or explicit. Do better.
