California’s New Law Puts People in Jail for Using Wrong Transgender Pronouns

The California government wants to tell you what pronouns you are allowed to use. It also thinks it has the right to promulgate scientifically inaccurate ideas of gender. If you don’t like it, you could be accused of a hate crime and put in prison. You will also go through the anti-bias brainwashing training.

A new law begins with longterm care facilities, but it’s the camel’s nose under the tent.

California’s proposed law, SB 219, titled the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights, will fine people up to $1,000 and jail them for up to a year if they don’t call elderly transgenders in long term care facilities by “her” or “she” if the patient so desires, CBN reported. Even if the grammar is incorrect, they must say it.

The bill is on its way to passage.

If an elderly person wants to be called by a certain pronoun, perhaps it’s kind to do it but why is the government involved?

The California government is ordering people to use pronouns they like, even if the facility is Christian.

The law states, “It shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to….  willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.”

It imposes fines and jail time on any long-term care employee who refuses to use transgender pronouns.  Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1,000 and a jail term of up to a year.

It mandates bathroom and rooming situations by gender not biological sex.

California Family Council’s Greg Burt testified before the California Assembly Judiciary Committee saying, “How can you believe in free speech, but think the government can compel people to use certain pronouns when talking to others?” He added, “Compelled speech is not free speech. Can the government compel a newspaper to use certain pronouns that aren’t even in the dictionary? Of course not, or is that coming next?”

“Those proposing this bill are saying, ‘If you disagree with me about my view of gender, you are discriminating against me,'” Burt continued. “This is not tolerance. This is not love. This is not mutual respect. True tolerance tolerates people with different views.  We need to treat each other with respect, but respect is a two-way street. It is not respectful to threaten people with punishment for having sincerely held beliefs that differ from your own.”

The bill is sponsored by the group Equality California [a leftist LGBT group] and authored by San Francisco Senator Scott Wiener. It sailed through committee without even one vote against it.
