Fully support this proposed policy

I fully support this very important policy, which helps protect young children from inappropriate explicit sexual content and respecting parents’ right to determine whether their children are exposed to this content. Whoever wants their children to be exposed to this materials can choose to do so, without infringing on the rights of others who do not want their young children to be exposed to this kind of materials. So, I'm amazed at the reaction of so called "parents" commenting in this board who say this is discrimination or calling this bill "no say gay" bill, just as they slander a similar Florida law, which is disingenuous. It's also amazing how these same people may be OK with movie ratings but got riled up by the same protection for children against explicit and vulgar sexual content in schools.
