Use the wrong pronoun, go to jail

If California legislators have their way, calling a transgender man “he” could result in a $1,000 fine and a year in prison

If liberal California legislators have their way, calling a transgender man “he” could result in a $1,000 fine and a year in prison.

The “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights,” or Senate Bill 219, will criminalize referring to a transgender nursing home resident by his/her actual gender.

The proposed law, which passed the California senate, 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 (transgender) name or (opposite sex) pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.”  

The bill also requires nursing homes — whether Christian-owned or not — to accommodate transgender bathrooms and showers.

Penalties are capped at $1,000 and a year in prison. Supporters say the law is justified because nursing homes and long-term care facilities are state regulated and licensed, and “professional-client speech is subject to more government regulation than other speech.”

The LGBTQI group “Equality California” sponsored the bill, which was written by state Senator Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco.  According to one analysis, the law would apply to nursing homes “and intermediate care facilities.”

Wiener argued that an individual citizen’s sincerely held beliefs did not matter. “The argument that religious views can create an exemption for civil rights laws or complying with civil rights laws is a highly radical notion,” Wiener told the committee.  

He added that people can privately believe what they want but publicly must comply with transgender theory. “Everyone is entitled to their religious view, but when you enter the public space; when you are running an institution, you are in a workplace, you are in a civil setting, and you have to follow the law,” he said.

The bill defines “gender identity” as “the individual’s stated gender identity, without regard to whether the self-identified gender accords with the individual’s physical appearance, surgical history, genitalia, legal sex, sex assigned at birth, or name and sex as it appears in medical records.”  

It also specifically states that the patient’s wishes are to be followed regardless of what his/her spouse, family, or lawyer may say.

  1. Beam me up Scotty!!! This planet in beyond repair.

      Ron,
      This is not a planet thing. Rather, this is what happens when modern liberals seize power and write laws with few checks and balances. It’s a California thing.

  2. Let’s get this straight: “The argument that religious views can create an exemption for civil rights laws or complying with civil rights laws is a highly radical notion,” Wiener told the committee.

    Oh, but the argument that a person who is a biological male can cease being a male and become female (even simply by willing to be female) is NOT a highly radical notion? Nor even a prima facie absurd notion?

    California is the land of idiots.

    new workshops for legal professionals hoping to cash in on pronoun injustice law will be springing up across the nation. you have the right to remain silent.

    • Michael McDermott says:

      The ‘Right to Remain Silent’ is one that is being heavily targeted for nullification.
      Staying silent means that you do Not Agree with the scam being pushed, and Silent Disapproval is Verbotten by the Gaystapo.

    You need a ‘scorecard’ these days!

  6. Its time to drain the Sacramento Swamp too! These people are insane. Let’s hope they fix their lives so their DNA/gene-chain won’t continue. Future generations shouldn’t have to be burdened with this public sorrow, stupidity, and pain.

      Actually – there are Many Judges who would gaily enforce this thought crime law, and at least in theory one could spend Life in Prison, if you repeated the Truth often enough

  8. Joel Fago says:

    Allowing a person who was created by God male to use female bathrooms and showers is evil and dangerous.

    The leader of Nigeria MassResistance, Dominic Idio, has published a ground-breaking book exploring and dissecting the homosexual movement through African eyes –
    Africa has become a worldwide target for the international LGBT movement, most recently pushing “gay marriage.” It’s a very well-funded outside effort that has even included financial threats by the US and Europe if the governments don’t succumb. This has shocked, angered, and confused many…

    • Many in the U.K. are trying to force abortion on those countries, too, right along with the U.S. Cardinal Napier has come out against it. It is “colonialism” at its worst as one African woman told the U.N. How better to ruin countries than to destroy their families with the garbage they are pushing over here. A man insisting he is a woman and visa versa is just plain fraud. People should sue them right back for fraud if they insist on the wrong pronoun or more than two. Fraud, fraud, fraud!

    President Trump has ordered the military to stop admitting transgender individuals into the military, sending guidance to the Pentagon –

    “In President Trump’s judgment, the previous administration failed to identify a sufficient basis to conclude that terminating long-standing policy and practice would not hinder military effectiveness, disrupt unit cohesion, tax military resources.”

    The directive reinstates the ban on military service for transgender individuals. It also halts military expenses on sexual reassignment surgery, except for those who…

      Mac – Most of those scam artistes using this pogrom in prisons are Males (XY) seeking to get out from being the low rung of the Male Prison Ladder, and instead moving up in to the much nicer Female (XX) Prisons, where their DNA based Gender makes them the top dog
      Some of the most notorious (like the ‘pioneer’ in Idaho who amputated his genitals and got a transfer) Killed Women, and are now in Women’s Prisons – Few ‘feminists’ object, but some do

  16. Oliver Grayson, because it is a lie, and people should not be forced to lie. The only ones who have a right to corrective surgery are those who were actually born with genital defects. If I told you I was Neopoleon, should I be able to sue you if you denied it? That would be crazy!

  17. I propose a law that would render a person insane that refers to anyone other than their birth gender and institutionalize then to protect the general public.

    California Could Start Jailing People Who Don’t Use Transgender Pronouns

    If you believe the DNA, and people go to jail based on DNA evidence, Jenner is Bruce, not Caitlin. Under a bill the Democrats are about to pass, if you recognize science not ideology, you could go to jail or a $1,000 fine. If I call you a Nazi—like Pelosi has called people, it is free speech. If I call you by your birth name, it becomes a hate crime and punishment happens –

    The law is currently limited in its effects to nursing homes and intermediate-care facilities, but if passed, those who “willfully and repeatedly”…

  19. Michael McDermott says:

    California Could Start Jailing People Who Don’t Use Transgender Pronouns
    – if passed, those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” could be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to National Review.
    The Senate passed the bill 26-12 at the end of May. Since then, the Assembly Judiciary committee recommended the bill unanimously and the General Assembly held its first hearing on the legislation Wednesday.”

    This report presents a careful summary and an up-to-date explanation of research — from the biological, psychological, and social sciences — related to sexual orientation and gender identity. It is offered in the hope that such an exposition can contribute to our capacity as physicians, scientists, and citizens to address health issues faced by LGBT populations within our society.

    Part Three: Gender Identity – The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be “a man trapped in a woman’s body” or “a woman trapped in a man’s body” — is not supported by scientific evidence –

    Compared to the general population, adults who have undergone sex-reassignment surgery continue to have a higher risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes
