Don't Say Gay" law in Florida, a group of Republican Senators this week requested updates to the nation's TV rating systems in an effort to help parents become aware of and prevent exposing their children to gender-identity related content they find objectionable.On Thursday, a letter was sent to Charles Rivkin, CEO of the Motion Picture Association and Board Chairman of the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board, noting the immediate need to amend the Board's current guidelines based on what they described as the "promotion of gender dysphoria." The phrase "gender dysphoria" is a concept designated in the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health) considered to be "clinically significant distress or impairment related to a strong desire to be of another gender.""...To the detriment of children, gender dysphoria has become sensationalized in the popular media and television with radical activists and entertainment companies," read the letter backed by Republican Senators Roger Marshall of Kansas, Mike Lee of Utah, Mike Braun of Indiana, Steve Daines of Montana and Kevin Cramer of North Dakota. "This radical and sexual sensation not only harms children, but also destabilizes and damages parental rights."For its part, the TV Parental Guidelines is a voluntary system of guidelines used by American families to determine whether or not a particular program is age-appropriate for children.
