Students walk out in Florida while President Biden himself rips Texas as anti-LGBTQ controversies in both states explode

The dual fights in Florida over the 'Don't Say Gay' bill and in Texas over Gov. Greg Abbott's attempt to take trans children away from their affirming parents are past the point of heating up. We're talking Dante Inferno's territory here.

In over 20 Florida schools, students staged walkouts in protest of the 'Don't Say Gay' bill and their presence was felt.

According to The Daytona Beach News Journal

 "Say gay! Say gay! Say gay!"

 That's what more than  500 students chanted at Flagler Palm Coast High School's stadium Thursday morning while waving pride flags in a walkout protesting House Bill 1557. The bill is a controversial measure that would prohibit school instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade.

 And this situation is far from over.
