ESPN’s Takes Moment of Silence in Protest of ‘Don’t Say Gay’

UPDATE: ESPN’s Elle Duncan, who accused Sage Steele of not being black enough, says it’s unfair to families that teachers can’t discuss sexual orientation with young children.

In addition, ESPN has not responded to several requests for comment from OutKick.

Friday, two ESPN broadcasters took a moment of silence during the NCAA Women’s Tournament in protest of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, known as “Don’t Say Gay.”

Take a look:

In the meantime, staffers at Disney, ESPN’s parent company, are staging walkouts over the matter. Disney Chief Bob Chapek even apologized to the woke for not condemning the bill hard enough last week.

So Disney is leading the pushback. You’d think from reading this that the bill must be either vile or discriminatory. Nope, it’s neither.

The so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill requires that teachers don’t discuss sexual orientation and gender identity with children in third grade and younger. That’s it.

However, the Democrats and the press say the bill is homophobic and transphobic. Therefore, wokesters like these two women are against it, and thus now support teachers sexually indoctrinating very young children.

Last week, Florida and governor Ron DeSantis responded to public protests, saying:

“Here’s what I can tell you, in the state of Florida, we are not going to allow them to inject transgenderism into kindergartens.

“First graders shouldn’t have woke gender ideology imposed in their curriculums, and that is what we’re standing for because we’re standing for the kids and we’re standing for the parents.

“The chance that I am going to back down on my commitment to students and back down from my commitment to parents’ rights simply because of fraudulent media narratives or pressure from woke corporations, the chances of that are zero.”

What a bill to protest against, let alone during a college basketball game. ESPN should be ashamed.

  1. Disgusting takes from disgusting people. And is that you calling it that Bobby? It has nothing to do with gay or straight. It’s about the role of teachers. They have no business having these discussions with children. I don’t think the bill goes far enough. It should be banned period. That’s the role of a parent. If parents want to outsource that, they can pay to go to a private school.

  2. I”M sick of these perverts SEXUALIZING kids. I don’t care if it’s gay or straight of masturbatory.. F***ING STOP IT!

    ESPN is part of Disney, who is proudly a Pedophilic organization, so we have to expect this in our “sports.”

  3. How about teaching 5 and 6 year olds to read and write and simple addition and subtraction? When they’re old enough they’ll figure out themselves what gay, lesbo and trans means. It’s really straight up sexual predator shit for a teacher to have this conversation with a 6 year old.

  4. Man, these fucking people are sick. What do 6-8 year olds know about sexuality? Kids that age shouldn’t even be thinking about that shit until they are emotionally ready to handle it. I didn’t think about that when I was that age. God almighty, this country is in trouble.
