Human Sexuality Bill Passes Headed To Governor Holcomb

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (NETWORK INDIANA):  Some people call it the human sexuality bill. Some call it the pronoun bill. You may soon have to call it state law.

At the Indiana Statehouse, it’s called House Bill 1608. In simple English, it’s the bill banning the teachings of what Republicans call “human sexuality” from Pre-Kindergarten through Third Grade; however, teachers wouldn’t be stopped if a student asked a question.

The bill also states that if a student wants to go by a different name or change their preferred pronoun, that has to go through the school and to the parent in a written notice.

Opponents of the bill say not only is this bill hateful towards LGBTQ Hoosiers, but it could also put students, who might have a bad relationship with mom or dad, in danger at home. Opponents also call this bill, and the gender affirming care ban bill, a “slate of hate” from Indiana lawmakers.

It passed the Senate, the House, and now heads to Governor Holcomb.

Outing a child to their parents is extremely dangerous. A lot of kids are verbally and physically when outed. Others are kicked out of their house, and some are even murdered.

I agree 100%

Sick, Democratic perverted, stupidity to say the least.

Sean April 27, 2023 at 1:15 pm

Has nothing to do with party and everything to do with humanity but you probably wouldn’t understand because you didn’t see it on fox.

Yet countless others end up regretting their decision and either transition back or worse commit suicide. A kid that young has zero clue what they want for lunch that day let alone what “gender” they are being forced to pretend to be by non-parents with an agenda.

C.Ommon Sense April 25, 2023 at 2:26 pm

The people pushing the trans agenda are likely the same people who demanded school closings and mask mandates. I guess “follow the science” only applies to their agenda and not to gender. This entire movement is being perpetrated by a handful of loud people desperate to distract the country from inflation, an open border, high crime, and the inevitable recession. It is being driven by left wing politicians who depend on useful idiots for support because they have nothing positive to offer regular Americans. Alita’s comments about danger are based on someone’s opinions, not facts. Stay strong Steve, we are in the majority.

Really? Because democrats always have to clean up after republicans. Deficit reduction and trying to make sense of all their nonsense. Let’s just tax everyone except the rich and corporations. Let people live and let them do whatever they need to have happiness in this short life . Worry about yourself.

Sean's reality check April 27, 2023 at 3:31 pm

Your comment is riddled with parroted stupidity and Lies so much that you can only be classified as a useful idiot for the Democrats.

“Worry about yourself.”…That’s why we are all here in support of a Bill that should never be needed to begin with… protect our kids from pro-groomers like you.

“Let people live and let them do whatever they need to have happiness in this short life “…that’s fine, just don’t expect anyone to participate in the mental illness with the pronoun and anti-women (I’m really a woman) crap…and STOP GROOMING CHILDREN!!!

Jason April 25, 2023 at 8:33 pm

I agree C. Common Sense

These child groomers need to go to prison! April 25, 2023 at 3:36 pm

“A lot of kids are verbally and physically when outed. Others are kicked out of their house, and some are even murdered.”…do you really think any of that about 4-9 year old kids “outed”….or is it more likely that parent will go looking for that kid’s grooming adult?

Outing a Child to their parents…..What they really mean is Outing a Grooming Pedophile to that child’s parents…..

A “Transgender” 1st, 2nd, 3rd (…etc.) grader DOES NOT EXIST without GROOMING BY ADULTS.

By definition, YOU are attacking that Parent’s family by keeping secretes from the parents about their child….ESPECALLY since adults are GROOMING them and trying to permanently modify their biology.

All those Groomers need to go to Prison!!!

My tax dollars say, Teach Reading, writing and math, and stay away from this mental illness!

Indiana is best states to live in we never fo by dems bs

Holly April 25, 2023 at 10:24 pm

I understand what you are saying. However, if the child is going by another name and/or pronoun, the parents would also be privy to that information when report cards are issued, any graded homework assignments would also have their child’s name listed on their schoolwork or even when getting permission for different events at school. If a child wants their name and/or pronouns changed, they would need to be changed in all classes and communication within the school. For the safety of all students and faculty, each student should go by the same name in each class and after school activity.
If a child is allowed to change name with no parent involvement, can you imagine how many kids would be changing their name each day! This change would not just be in effect for LGBTQ students, but every student would be allowed to change their names for whatever reason they wanted to. If you work with kids or are around them very often you know they would take full advantage of this and it would be a full time job for teachers and faculty just to keep up with the daily name changes. But Andy child changing their name at school would be doing so willingly and would understand all their schoolwork would have that name and that choice would involve their parents knowing.
I wish we could just let kids be kids and go through all the awkward phases of like without adults wanting to throw a label on their behaviors. Let them be kids and enjoy/hate all the embarrassing stages along the way.

Lisa April 25, 2023 at 8:38 am

Personally I think the government is not caring about what a dangerous bill this is Kids have a hard enough time fitting in now it will make there home life very dangerous. It’s time to start thinking about what really matters. SAFETY

C. Ommon Sense April 25, 2023 at 9:40 am

Parents have a right to know if their child is having mental issues. The schools should not be involved in decisions that children are not mature enough to make for themselves. This bill should not have needed passed, but the trans crowd is forcing state legislatures to act. A child who is not old enough to drive, vote, or buy alcohol is certainly not old enough to understand the ramnification of “changing their gender.” No amount of affirmation, hormones, or surgery will remove the underlying mental illness issues. In the end, there are only two genders based on your biology and that is fact. Everything else is child abuse by adults trying to justify their poor life choices.

Go spread your hate, insecurity and bias somewhere else. The lgbt community stands for love and peace and I don’t know a SANE person anywhere that would want different. I.E. I’m calling you out for your own “mental illness” issues.

C. Ommon Sense April 25, 2023 at 2:21 pm

Jessica, there was no hate, insecurity, or bias in my comments. I think you are projecting just like so many “woke” people do. The trans community is rife with depression and high suicide rates. The inmates are in charge of the asylum which is why this bill will be passed and signed into law. The trans community is just another step on the slippery slope to pedophilia. Liberals like you are some of the most self loathing and closed minded people in the country.

Steve April 25, 2023 at 10:46 am

You are 100% correct. It’s sad that society today has gotten so crazy that a bill like this is needed.

D April 25, 2023 at 11:36 am

Sounds like common sense legislation to me. Humans have xx or xy chromosomes. I don’t care what you want to be. You are one or the other, and this cannot be changed right now with our current technology. I am not going to be a part of your fantasy, and you do not have the right to push it onto the children.

Ken April 25, 2023 at 7:18 pm

VOTE democrat 100% local,state and federal.

Ken's conscience April 26, 2023 at 10:36 am

Indiana should Pass a State Law that Bans any Political Party that has Advocated for Slavery… should never be allowed to be on an election Ballot…..Would You agree with that Bill?

That Bill would exclusively Ban Democrats since they publicly advocated for Slavery in 1864.

You must also be pro-KKK, Pro-Jim Crow Laws, anti-women’s right to vote, and anti-constitution/anti-freedom…?

Wendy April 25, 2023 at 7:21 pm

A parent has every right to know what’s happening in the child’s life at school! The school is not raising the child! Grooming a child, key word CHILD, should not be happening at school anyway! They are only there to learn how to read, write and do math etc, not change their sexuality. This is ridiculous!

Herbie April 26, 2023 at 8:31 am

The Bill doesn’t go far enough. No teacher should ever be having any talks with underaged minors about sexuality. That is strictly a parent’s role. The real issue is who ‘owns’ the children. Marxist doctrine holds children as belonging to society as a whole. That is in direct conflict with God and family. Marxist pedophiles are running our public schools. It’s time to clean house and get rid of the perverted left in education. You do not have any right to push your perversions on my child or anyone else’s child. They do it behind our backs! That says a lot about the left. You can be trans all you want when you are of age. But you do not have the right to push this trash on underaged children! Just ten years ago a teacher would have been arrested and thrown in jail for such a CRIME! What is the difference between a teacher having sex with an underaged minor verses grooming an underaged minor? The answer is the first one is arrested and charged with a sex crime. The second one is defended by democrats.

So sad we elected this group to take care of real problems and they seem to be spending their time on bills of hate!! Indiana is a state that just follows other states leads . The old if they jumped off a bridge we would follow !!

It’s all smoke screen to cover up the fact they don’t have a clue or an original thought on real issues! Wake up Indians Vote them out!!!!

Chuck U David April 27, 2023 at 1:34 pm

Protecting Children from Groomers is a real problem. Protecting families from the mentally ill infecting their kids is a real problem. Protecting Indiana from the Fascists in Washington DC is a real Problem.

The only people against this Bill are sick Groomers with their Pedophilia fantasies seeing these kids as their next victum.

Indiana currently lacks a leader…..They are doing a decent job in this State, and will be even better once Mike Braun is Governor to Lead. But I do agree, they should be leaders (not followers) in protecting Families, Freedom and our future.
