This legislation is too vague and will allow certain books to fall into this category, NOT based in "sexually explicit" content, but rather because of their opinions of uneducated and hateful people. This harms the LGBTQ community. It is another instance of Christian theology being made the law of the land.

I would add an amendum that this can't discriminate about content about LBGTQ+ relationships, which is not sexually explicit, but are people out there who want to discriminate needlessly.
