As I pointed out yesterday before my comment was removed (not sure why?), the Florida legislature is considering repealing the 1967 Act, which created RCID. Here's a tweet posted this morning by a FL House Member:I wonder if Disney anticipated this story blowing up in conservative media the way it has, or if this caught them by surprise? I wouldn’t necessarily have expected this to be a big story in right wing media but things have been shifting fast recently. (I think there is a really interesting analysis behind this shift but I gather additional analysis is considered political in this thread, so I’ll leave it at that.)
From here it will be interesting to see if Disney gets more emphatic about their stance or drops the topic and quietly moves on. I’m 50/50 on which way they’ll go.
Like I've said previously, I don't care about politics. I'm a gay man, I'm not a fan of the bill, and I'm certainly not a fan of DeSantis. I am however a realist and I think Disney messed up by wadding really deep into this issue, especially when there's no real benefit for them to get involved.
