Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has been tweeting in support of Florida’s Don’t Say Gay law for some time, but now she’s going a step further and apparently calling for a ban on coming out before the age of 21.

“We require people to be 21 to purchase alcoholic beverages, and 21 to purchase tobacco products,” she tweeted.

Related: Lauren Boebert tried to mock Jen Psaki’s intelligence. It didn’t go well.

“Why is it so unreasonable to require people to reach a certain level of maturity before making life-altering decisions about their sexuality and identity?”

In the replies, people noted that Boebert herself was a high school student when she got pregnant and subsequently dropped out of school. She later married a man who was arrested for exposing himself to women at a bowling alley, where Boebert was present and a minor.

Others pointed out that Boebert doesn’t want to hold guns to the same age restrictions, even though guns are actually dangerous.
