Ohio Republican lawmakers have recently introduced their version of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill. If passed into law, it would prohibit public school teachers from employing “any curriculum or instructional materials on sexual orientation or gender identity” in kindergarten through third grade. Furthermore, it would prohibit teachers of fourth- to 12th-grade students from discussing “sexual orientation or gender identity in any manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”

What exactly those state standards might be is left unsaid – and better left unsaid, if you ask me.

This bill is a good start. But I think it needs to go further. For example, I believe the bill should specify that nursery school and kindergarten teachers, when teaching little children the alphabet, should henceforth be prohibited from teaching the letters “L,” “G,” “B,” “T” and most importantly “Q.”

But how, you may ask, can we possibly do without those letters? Lots of very useful words contain them, after all?

The answer is simple: Replace those letters with signs or symbols. The letter L can be replaced with the # sign. The letter G with $. The letter B with &. The letter T with %. And the letter Q with @.

Some may object that my proposal is both impractical and inconvenient – maybe even downright silly. But to those people, I say this: Why are you pro-pedophilia?

#E%’S $O &RANDON!
