‘Null and Void’: Iowa Aims to Expunge Same-Sex Marriageby Ben Johnson

The political battle to defend natural marriage is far from over in the nation’s heartland, as Iowa legislators have introduced two bills that would expunge same-sex marriage from state law and declare a national law redefining marriage “null and void.” The bills come as yet another local Republican Party chapter condemned Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), one of 12 Republican senators who voted for the so-called Respect for Marriage Act.

‘Prostitution Is Not a Victimless Crime’: 160 Caught in FL Sex Sting Including Teachers, Deputy Police Chief, Disney Worker

A sex sting operation in Florida resulted in 160 arrests during a week-long human trafficking operation, including a Georgia deputy police chief, a correctional officer, two high school teachers, and a Disney employee.  

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office announced during a press conference Friday that the seven-day undercover operation, “Operation Fall Haul 2,” uncovered two trafficking victims. It also identified another five possible victims during the operation that began on Aug. 30. 

According to the sheriff’s office, those who traveled to engage in prostitution were screened by detectives and social services organizations to determine if they were being trafficked or exploited by others. A follow-up will be conducted with those victims who are suspected to be sex trafficked or exploited.

“The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and allows for the continued victimization of those who are being trafficked,” Sheriff Grady Judd said at a news conference. “Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and arrest those who are fueling the exploitation of human beings (Johns) and those profiting from the exploitation of human beings.”

“Prostitution is not a victimless crime,” Judd added. “It results in exploitation, disease, dysfunction, drug and alcohol addiction, violence, and broken families.”

FL School Document Tells Teachers to Help Children Hide Gender Confusion From Parents

6/8/2022 12:34:27 PM Andrea Morris

One Southeast Florida school district is telling its teachers to withhold details about a child’s transition to another gender from their parents.

Broward County Public Schools district’s “LGBTQ Critical Support Guide” states that it is now policy for educators to secretly ask transgender students how they want to be addressed and “assess the degree to which, if any, the parent(s)/guardian will be involved in the process.”

The measure is supposed to “consider the health, well-being and safety of the transitioning student.”

“Children typically begin expressing their gender identity between the ages of two and four years old. Around this age, transgender children often express their cross-gender identification to their family members or caregivers,” the guide claims.

School staff are urged to respect a student’s choice not to share their desire to transition with family members. 

The school district notes that “It is strongly suggested that school personnel privately ask transgender and gender nonconforming students how they want to be addressed in communications to the home or at conferences with the student’s parents/legal guardians.”

Students may also “wish” to consider transitioning over the summer “to maintain privacy and confidentiality,” the guidelines read.

The document claims, “expression of transgender identity, or any other form of gender-expansive behavior, is a healthy, appropriate and typical aspect of human development.” 

Staff is slated to receive training that relates to transgender and nonbinary students in an effort to make a safer environment for all students. 

Educators are also given suggestions on how to better support LGBTQ issues and gender ideology. 

“Seek out anti-bias curricula and resources that are intersectional and affirming, making sure all types of families are incorporated into your curriculum and into your classroom discussions and conversation,” reads one tip.

Another suggests that teachers should “include books and resources reflecting different family structures, including LGBTQ+-headed families.” 

School staff is also expected to call the student by the preferred name and pronoun.

Additionally, the Florida school district is allowing students to use whichever restroom aligns with their chosen gender identity.

“Transgender students shall have access to the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity asserted at school or the restroom that makes them feel safe and comfortable. This means that transgender students are entitled to use gender-segregated restrooms that match their gender identity.”

CBN News reached out to Broward County Schools for comment but did not hear back at the time of publication. 

Similar concerns about schools hiding children’s gender confusion from parents are also playing out in states around the country from Kansas to Wisconsin.
