Twitter users are blasting Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) after she defended Florida’s Don’t Say Gay law by harking back to the past.

“Growing up, I don’t recall teachers announcing their marital status & pronouns to everyone,” Boebert tweeted. “They’re there to educate. How is this still a complaint of the Left?”

Boebert has repeatedly spread anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric and has been blamed for stoking violence against the community. This tweet was in response to a video of out White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre discussing the White House’s response to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) decision to block the teaching of AP African American Studies in the state.

Jean-Pierre called the decision “incomprehensible” and said, “these types of actions aren’t new…especially from Florida…Florida currently bans teachers from talking about who they are and who they love,” a reference to the state’s Don’t Say Gay law. The law prohibits K-3 teachers from discussing sexual orientation and gender identity with their students.

Twitter users came for Boebert from all angles, some explaining that teachers have always shared their pronouns and personal lives with students and others explaining some other things that are different about schools today.
