STRONGLY OPPOSE- vague wording leaves queer content unprotected

this bill needs to be way more descriptive about what sexual content  means. It is one thing to ban books with a sex scene, it is another to ban books that talk about people who aren’t what some people deem “normal”.  until this bill is rewritten to specifically protect trans, gay, and other queer stories, i will wholeheartedly oppose it.
