Fox News’ Peter Doocy grilled White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on what age the White House believes it’s appropriate to teach children about gender identity and sexual orientation.
During the Monday press conference, Psaki reiterated that the official stance of the White House was in opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which critics have erroneously dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” law.
“At what age does the White House think that students should be taught about sexual orientation and gender identity?” Doocy asked.
Psaki danced around the question.
DOOCY: “On the Florida law, at what age does the White House think that students should be taught about sexual orientation and gender identity?”
PSAKI: “This is a politically charged, harsh law that is putting LGBT kids in a heartbreaking circumstance.”

Doocy followed up by asking whether the White House thinks it’s appropriate to have discussions around gender identity and sexual orientation with kids before Kindergarten, which seemed to turn Psaki to snark mode before her response.
“Do you have examples of schools in Florida that are teaching kindergarteners about sex education?” Psaki asked, eyebrows raised.
“I’m asking for the president’s opinion about-” Doocy explained before Psaki cut him off.
“I think that’s a relevant question because I think this is a politically-charged, harsh law that is putting parents and LGBTQ+ kids in a very difficult, heartbreaking circumstance,” Psaki explained before moving on to another question.
Twitter was not impressed:
I would like to hear what doctors and psychologists think about this

They want to teach LGBTQ stuff but not prayer! I want prayer back in school

A kid has no thought or concept of what sexual orientation or gender they identify with because they are just kids. Unless introduced by an outside source, such as a teacher, they don’t think about these things. In third grade I was concerned with my post-recess snack, not this.

She definitely wasn’t on her game here. Maybe she has short-timers and she’s just ready to bail

It’s like they want to make more kids question their sexuality. It’s really disturbing.

How is those two words exist together in any normal society? How can kids have ANY sexual preferences? They are KIDS!!!

Funny the US has always ranked behind other countries in math, sciences, etc. and we’re having to deal with this nonsense. It has no place in academics..period.
