Florida GOP bill would ban young girls from mentioning their periods in school

State Rep. Stan McClain (R) (Florida House of Representatives)

A Florida Republican admitted that his bill would ban young girls from discussing menstruation with school officials but claimed it wasn't the "intent" of his legislation.

Republican state Rep. Stan McClain introduced House Bill 1069, which would restrict education materials in schools, require schools to teach the "benefits of monogamous heterosexual marriage," and require educators to teach that "sex is determined by biology and reproductive function at birth …and that these reproductive roles are binary, stable, and unchangeable."

The Republican-dominated subcommittee ultimately advanced the bill 13-5 on Wednesday, according to HuffPost.
