MONTGOMERY, AL – (04-11-22) – Gov. Kay Ivey signed two anti-LGBT bills last Friday that has set off a fire storm among LGBTQ activists. The right wing conservative governor is following in the steps of 26 other Republican run states that are attacking the LGBTQ community with anti-LGBT legislation.

Gov Kay Ivey signed SB184, or the Alabama Vulnerable Child Protection Act, which criminalizes gender-affirming surgeries for trans youth. The governor also signed HB322, known by opponents as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, because an amendment is modeled after Florida legislation banning the teaching of “divisive concepts” in schools.

“There are very real challenges facing our young people, especially with today’s societal pressures and modern culture. I believe very strongly that if the Good Lord made you a boy, you are a boy, and if he made you a girl, you are a girl,” said the governor in a statement after signing both bills.

“We should especially protect our children from these radical, life-altering drugs and surgeries when they are at such a vulnerable stage in life. Instead, let us all focus on helping them to properly develop into the adults God intended them to be.” said Ivey.

The anti-LGBTQ bill also mandates that people in schools must use the bathroom of the gender listed on their birth certificate.

“Here in Alabama, men use the men’s room, and ladies use the ladies’ room – it’s really a no brainer,” said Ivey. “This bill will also ensure our elementary school classrooms remain free from any kind of sex talk. Let me be clear to the media and opponents who like to incorrectly dub this the “Don’t Say Gay” amendment: That is misleading, false and just plain wrong. We don’t need to be teaching young children about sex. We are talking about five-year-olds for crying out loud. We need to focus on what matters – core instruction like reading and math.” said Ivy.

Expect for lawsuits to come from LGBTQ activists soon!
