Ileana Garcia apologizes if you were offended

by Margaret Willard

Republican Sen. Ileana Garcia offered an apology this week to those she offended when she said that being “gay is not a permanent thing” on the Senate floor earlier this month.

The comments came during debate about a parental rights bill critics are calling the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

“My comments in no way were intended to generalize or disregard the experiences of any member of the LGBT+ community,” Garcia wrote. “I was trying to explain my very personal life experiences and did not properly articulate my sentiments.”

She did not explain further what she meant by her comments, however.
