Joe Rogan blasted the narrative surrounding the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill in Florida, and sent a message to teachers that it’s not their job to teach about “gender transitioning and sexual orientation.”

During a discussion Friday on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Rogan’s guest, stand-up comedian Ali Siddiq, was talking about the host’s N-word controversy and being asked about it during a recent interview. The host and Siddiq discussed how there seems to be a pattern of trying to get people mad without giving all the context.

Siddiq added he wouldn’t be used to “get” another [person’s/journalist’s] agenda across.

At approximately the 1:34:42 mark, the podcast host then asked Siddiq if he had heard about the “Don’t Say Gay S*** in Florida?”

“They’re calling this the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law in Florida with kids,” Rogan explained. “They’re pretending … they’re saying ‘don’t say gay,’ so everybody’s saying ‘gay, gay, gay, I’m gonna say gay cause I support gay people, and gay rights, and gay this and gay that.’”

“But that’s not what the law is,” he added. “What the law does say is that from first grade to third grade, you can’t bring up gender transition, sexual orientation, whether people are gay or straight. They say don’t teach that in class. That’s it. That’s the law — which seems reasonable. You don’t want an unknown person who’s a teacher, a stranger, talking to your child who’s six about sexual transitioning and gender transitioning and sexual orientation and gay people and bisexual people and non-binary people.”

“Like hey, hey, hey, that f***ing kid needs to learn how to read and write and count, and know history, and normal s***,” Rogan continued. “They don’t need to know about trans kids and — that’s not for you teach. That’s not your job. That’s a delicate issue to be handled by parents and loved ones. And so, people are freaking out and they’re calling it the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill. But that’s not what the bill is. But if you say ‘don’t say gay,’ people freak out, ‘Oh, Florida’s just so homophobic. And they’re so backwards.’ That’s not what it says.”

In an earlier podcast episode this week, Rogan also weighed in on the Florida bill and said “teachers are not supposed to be the people that explain gender to a f***ing 7- year-old.”

“They [teachers] shouldn’t have any say at all when you are talking to a 7-year-old kid,” he added. “I feel like that is the job of the parent.”
