The Washington Post blamed the GOP lawmakers from Iowa of “targeting the LGBTQ community” in an article published on Monday and also for turning the state into the new “Florida of the North.”
A reporter from Washington Post, Annie Gowen stated:

“Republicans in the Iowa legislature, empowered by the state’s recent ‘red wave,’ have embarked on an ambitious new agenda that includes a costly school choice bill and legislation targeting the LGBTQ community, a historic divergence from Iowa’s history as a civil rights bastion.”
“A joke among statehouse reporters is that Iowa is becoming the ‘Florida of the North’ — without the beaches.”
The Washington Post named the GOP Governor of Iowa, Kim Reynolds, nearly 10 times in the hit piece, characterizing her as a culture warrior on “abortion access, gun rights, and school choice.”
However, The Post mentioned a special link between the so-called “Don’t say gay” activists in both Florida and Iowa.
Leftist protestors have particularly called Florida’s Parental Rights in Education legislation, which passed in March, the “Don’t say gay” legislation, with an aim to stain Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis.
The rule also stops school staffers or any other third parties from giving lectures on “gender identity” or “sexual orientation” to students who are under 4th grade.
The Washington Post claimed that Reynolds has concentrated her authority on putting limitations on the LGBTQ society.
The Washington Post argued:
“Even as teens draped in rainbow flags crowded into the Capitol rotunda chanting ‘We say gay’ on March 8, Iowa lawmakers quickly passed three bills related to gay and transgender rights, culminating with a measure to ban gender-affirming care for transgender youth that is awaiting Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds’s signature.”
