California Now Jails those using the wrong Gender Pronouns

  •   New California Law will Jail those using the wrong Gender Pronouns


    California health care workers who “willfully and repeatedly” decline to use a senior transgender patient's “preferred name or pronouns” could face punishments ranging from a fine to jail time under a newly signed law.
    California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the legislation last week.
    The sponsor, Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener, has argued adamantly that nobody is going to be criminally prosecuted for using the wrong pronoun.
    “It’s just more scare tactics by people who oppose all LGBT civil rights and protections,” he said in a statement last month.
    But the language seemingly allows for the possibility, however remote.
    The bill itself is aimed at protecting transgender and other LGBT individuals in hospitals, retirement homes and assisted living facilities. The bill would ensure those facilities accommodate transgender people and their needs, including letting them decide which gender-specific bathroom they prefer to use.
    "It shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to take any of the following actions wholly or partially on the basis of a person’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status," the bill reads.

    Bill proposes punishment for not using preferred pronouns
    Among the unlawful actions are “willfully and repeatedly” failing to use a transgender person’s “preferred name or pronouns” after he or she is “clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.”
    The law states that if provisions are violated, the violator could be punished by a fine “not to exceed one thousand dollars” or “by imprisonment in the county jail for a period not to exceed one year,” or both.

    Wiener's office noted that violations for residential care facilities under existing law rarely resulted in criminal charges, especially for minor violations. Criminal penalties are meant more for violations that expose a patient to risk of death or serious harm, his office said.
    Wiener’s office noted that the law “does not create any new criminal provisions,” but rather creates “new rights within an existing structure.”
    One opponent of the law, the California Family Council's Greg Burt, slammed the measure when the bill was in its early stages.  
    “How can you believe in free speech, but think the government can compel people to use certain pronouns when talking to others?” he said to the California Assembly Judiciary Committee in August, according to CBN News.

  • More California looniness:

    It is no longer a crime to WILLINGLY transmit HIV/AIDS in California. This is thanks to Senator Scott Wiener of the 11th Senate District, San Francisco. And people wonder why Jews have been expelled from 109 countries.
    There is a God, but there probably is no Pope Francis.

    Like I've been saying all along,
    .
    Like I started telling my friends over 15 years ago and they thought I was "full of it,"
    .
    It was true then and it remains true today, and it will become more IN YOUR FACE in years to come,
    .
    The Homosexual Activists will not rest until Homosexuality Becomes Law -- 
    .
    Their ultimate endgame is to make it an offense punishable by DEATH to be opposed to homosexuality.
    .
    This includes being opposed to TRANSGENDER "orientation" or the use of any bizarre pronouns associated with faggotry or queerdom.
    .
    Don't think so?
    .
    15 years ago would you have ever thought the day would come when it's a CIVIL RIGHT to be respected as a full-blown transexual?
    .

  • Unfortunately, he isn't up for reelection until 2020.

  • (RC1953!   How's 'bout providing Web addresses for these articles that seem to make up the vast majority of your recent postings to CathInfo?  After 5075 postings on C.I., you sure can't credibly claim that you haven't figured out how to do that, nor that you haven't yet got the hang of it.)

    California health care workers who “willfully and repeatedly” decline to use a senior transgender patient's “preferred name or pronouns” could face punishments ranging from a fine to jail time under a newly signed law.  California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the legislation last week.  The sponsor, Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener, has argued adamantly that nobody is going to be criminally prosecuted for using the wrong pronoun.  “It’s just more scare tactics by people who oppose all LGBT civil rights and protections,” he said in a statement last month.  But the language seemingly allows for the possibility, however remote.

    Never ever accept assurances from a legislator or bureaucrat who has written or sponsored extreme language in legislation or proposed regulations that the extreme language will never be used as written.  Drawing public attention to it is certainly not merely "scare tactics".  If someone who sees thro' the brazen smoke screen calls for removal of language that allegedly will never be used, that call will, of course, be rejected.  Because that language is indeed there to be used in the future--it's what might be called a "time-bomb"--so there are absolutely no viable alternatives to its removal: Remove it, or oppose the whole [expletives deleted] bill or proposal.

    And Gov. "Moonbean" Brown is plenty bright enough to have understood that before he signed it.

    The bill itself is aimed at protecting transgender and other LGBT individuals in hospitals, retirement homes and assisted living facilities.

    No, no, no!  The bill is aimed at getting the sodomite-pervert-lobby camel's nose under whatever part of the proverbial tent they've decided seems likely to generate the most sympathy--i.e., seniors dependent on medical or hospice care--and is thus the least publically objectionable.
