I have never supported children being drugged/mutilated, exposed to sexual politics, etc. Some of the views I have changed were because I was somewhat on the fence about them, and exposed to new evidence, I changed accordingly.

He spoke about his track record as governor, garnering applause and cheers for signing laws from a six-week abortion ban, reinstating the death penalty for sexual battery of children and banning vaccine work requirements.
He received multiple standing ovations for talking about his fight to “protect children’s innocence.” DeSantis signed into law educational changes including banning removing “adult” materials and limiting discussion of LGBTQ+ issues and “critical race theory.” He talked about his fight against Disney in recent months over their opposition to the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
“People told me … If Disney weighs in, they’re the 800-pound gorilla, you better watch out, they’re going to steamroll you,” DeSantis said. “Well, here I stand.”
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds introduced DeSantis, saying that she took Iowa being called “the Florida of the North” as a compliment. Reynolds has signed many similar measures into law in Iowa this year that DeSantis touted in his speech, such as a law banning books with written and visual depictions of sex acts from school libraries, and a ban on gender-affirming care such as hormone replacement therapy and puberty blockers for minors.
DeSantis said he disagreed with critics categorizing these laws as book bans, saying that opponents were proliferating a hoax by calling the act of taking “hardcore pornography” out of schools a book ban. Many of the books brought up as inappropriate by parents during the Iowa legislative session were narratives about LGBT people and people of color. A Florida principal resigned after sixth-grade students were shown a picture of Michelangelo’s David, after parents criticized the school for exposing their children to pornography.

The Michelangelo's David statue case is interesting because it shows both extremes of the spectrum are willing to cancel Classical/Renaissance art, literature or thought they find to be "inappropriate" for whatever reason (nudity, racism, misogyny, whatever). In that regard, they're not so different from each other after all.

BLM made sense to most people because most people lack a proper grounding in basic statistics
Maybe social change at the expense of children's innocence and lives isn't a good thing. Have you considered that?
