TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — A bulletin board at a Tallahassee high school advertising far-Left ideas about gender, sexuality and “heterosexual and cisgender privilege” has been taken down. Photos of the bulletin board published by Tallahassee Reports on Monday reveal an array of LGBTQ ideas regarding gender fluidity and sexual orientation that were advertising school’s Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) student club. The article reported that the District was investigating the legality of the content.
Leon County Schools (LCS) Superintendent Rocky Hanna confirmed with The Florida Standard that the content on the was removed due to violating district policies regarding what clubs can post on bulletin boards.
DOZENS OF GENDER AND SEXUAL IDENTITIES
The GSA board’s message celebrated dozens of different labels for gender and sexuality identity. Some of the labels have corresponding technicolored flags, while others are apparently flagless. In addition to the rainbow alphabet’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) identities, additional labels include pangender, bigender, trigender, demigender, agender, aromoantic, asexual, demisexual, polysexual, omnisexual, MLM Gay, Labyrs Lesbian, two-spirit, non-binary. The full list can be viewed in the photo below.
CISGENDER AND HETEROSEXUAL PRIVILEGE
Flyers on the board declared “If you can use public bathrooms without stares, fear or anxiety you have cisgender privilege” and “If you can comfortably walk down the street and hold your partner’s hand while holding your partner’s hand you have heterosexual privilege.” Each of the flyers declared in all caps CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE and included boxes for “white,” “male,” “cisgender” and others.
Hanna said that while clubs are permitted to advertise their meetings by posting the time, date and location of upcoming meetings, they are “not allowed to share additional propaganda.”
“It was not on the school administration’s radar screen and once it was brought to their attention it was immediately taken down,” Hanna said. “That material should not have been on that bulletin board.”
