U.S. Rep. Mary Miller (R-Oakland) has introduced a bill that would let parents opt out of any survey that includes LGBTQ.
“Schools are partnering with radical left-wing lobbying organizations and Big Tech to force young children to fill out surveys regarding sexual orientation, transgender ideology, and woke politics,” Miller said in her announcement. “I am introducing the Parents Opt-in Protection Act to ensure parents are informed and give written consent before schools and Big Tech can collect any information from our children. Schools should never force sexual materials or political ideology upon children while keeping parents in the dark. Parents are the guardians of their children, and we must protect parental rights in the classroom.”
Miller has a long history of anti-LGBTQ comments and legislation.
Earlier in February, she reintroduced a bill that would bar transgender girls and women from school sports nationally.
In October 2022, she co-sponsored a national “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Also in October, she co-signed a letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona that stated allowing “biological males to use female bathrooms” put children at risk of sexual assault this week.
Miller’s social media hasn’t been much better. Last April, she tweeted the Biden Administration was “encouraging children to take chemical castration drugs and undergo surgeries” and that puberty blockers weren’t reversible. Both of those statements are lies.
Her first big claim to fame was saying “Hitler was right about one thing” just three days after being sworn in for her first term. (Editor’s note: No, we will not let her forget it.)
