Feminists and SJWs are always trying to push their crazy agendas, and when they can’t convince people with their idiotic ways they often turn to crying for legislation so they can force their ideas on people.
In California, they were unfortunately successful.
Healthcare workers in California who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse to cater to transgender snowflakes and use their “preferred name or pronouns” can now face serious punishments that can range from a fine to time in prison under a new law California Governor Jerry Brown signed this week.
The sponsor of the bill, Senator Scott Wiener (CA-D), has repeatedly insisted that no one is actually going to be prosecuted and go to court over this law. He insists that “it’s just more scare tactics by people who oppose all LGBT civil rights and protections.”
Right, because we can all trust that with our crazy screwed up courts system.
But, the wording of the bill seems vague enough to allow the possibility that it could indeed happen.
“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.
The lawmakers who wrote the bill claim that it’s meant to protect LGBT people in hospitals, nursing homes, and other places that deal with seniors.
If someone “willfully and repeatedly” refuses to use a transgender’s “preferred name or pronouns” after they’ve been “clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns,” they can face harsh penalties like a fine “not to exceed one thousand dollars” or “not to exceed one thousand dollars.” Or, if you’re terribly unlucky, you may end up getting both.
Honestly, though, how many seniors is this bill protecting, seeing as how most people who undergo this aren’t typically that old.
This bill is a terrible idea because it puts a new source of power into the hands of already vindictive and self-victimizing people, SJWs.
I’m sorry, but giving them all that power in the name of protecting a handful of seniors doesn’t seem like a proper way to deal with the situation.
But that’s not the only law that California passed recently that’s making people’s heads hurt. Over the weekend, Gov. Brown also signed a bill into law that says knowingly infecting someone with HIV during sex is no longer a felony.
Yes, you read that right.
The law also applies to those who donate blood without alerting the staff to the fact that they’re HIV positive.
And who are the idiots behind this plan? Yeah, the same person, Sen. Scott Wiener.
“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Wiener said in a statement. “HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.”
Well, I was planning on going to LA for a week around Christmas.
I’m starting to rethink that plan.
