Men (and women!) in Florida always seem to be making the news for actions that defy all common sense. Known as “Florida Man,” we’ve all read their tall tales -- stabbing someone with a swordfish, brawling with the Easter Bunny, and tossing an alligator through a drive-thru window.

We opine it’s something to do with state’s penis shape.

Whatever the reason, Floridians refuse to be ignored – and we, as Americans, must live with them.

There’s an ongoing cultural war down that way. Gender identity has become a forbidden topic, and books are being yanked from school libraries like weeds from a garden. And through it all, Florida Man is not staying silent. Consider this actual Florida man by the name of Chaz Stevens.

Chaz Stevens, a 57-year-old tech wizard with a history of pulling wacky political stunts, took advantage of Florida’s new law that makes it easier for parents and county residents to challenge books in schools. Chaz’s three-page petition to all 63 Florida school districts “critiques the Bible for its depictions of bestiality and cannibalism, its ‘eye-popping passages of babies being smashed against the rocks’ in Psalms 137 and its ‘strong pro-slavery position,’ citing Ephesians 6:5-7.”

Chaz’s colorful history includes campaigning to open city commission meetings with invocations to Satan, erecting a Festivus pole at the Florida Capitol to protest the Christmas Nativity scene and sending butt plugs to misbehaving public officials.

His antics once led to the arrests of three-fifths of Deerfield Beach city’s ruling body, including the mayor, over allegations they falsified records and violated state conflict of interest and gift disclosure laws.

“I’m sorry you’re stuck with me,” says Chaz. “But I don’t see anybody else rising to the challenge, just a lot of ...Twitter commentary.”

Chaz adds: “If not me, then who?”

Chaz might be the world’s worst superhero, but at this moment, this Florida Man may actually save the day by battling threats to equal education and free speech.

Professional Life.

Over the years, he's worked as a technology product developer for IBM, The Coca Cola Company, and The Walt Disney World Company. Chaz is currently CEO and co-founder of ESADoggy, a global organization that provides emotional support animal-related services.

I co-founded ESADoggy, a company that provides animal-assisted remote mental health care – aka support dogs and emotional support animals. If you’re thinking, what a crappy marketspace, you’d not be far from the truth – it’s a channel filled with predatory vendors, ethically-challenged clinicians, and sketchy clients.

I developed Doggy out of my garage, in the great tradition of my “gods” … Jobs and Woz, Hewlett and Packard, visionary men who reshaped the world.

Ordained Minister.

Chaz is an ordained minister in the State of California, State of Florida, and Jezero County, Mars.

Don't just stand there on the sidelines, get in the game today!

Calling it a "really significant win for parents in the state of Florida," Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law a measure that gives parents and guardians more freedom to challenge the types of books that are in school libraries and on school reading lists.
