California Considering Legislation To Recognize New Gender; Are You "Male, Female, or Nonbinary"?

Tyler Durden's picture

America, meet The Gender Recognition Act of 2017, a.k.a SB 179, a new little piece of California legislation, drafted by two Democratic State Senators, that corrects the widely accepted, if quite oppressive and ancient, notion that only two genders exist for the human race.  How have we lived this ridiculous lie for so long?  

The bill, drafted by Senators Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) and Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), is specifically intended to create a third gender, referred to as "nonbinary", which will be officially recognized on state-issued ID cards as well as birth certificates and court documents. 

With help from Equality California and the Transgender Law Center, Senators Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) and Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) today announced the introduction of legislation, SB 179 – The Gender Recognition Act of 2017, that will enable more transgender, intersex and nonbinary people to obtain state-issued identity documents that accurately reflect their gender.


The bill accomplishes this by creating a third, nonbinary gender marker on California birth certificates, driver’s licenses, identity cards and gender-change court orders. The bill also streamlines the processes for Californians to apply to the state for a change in gender on these identifying documents.

Meanwhile, per a statement released on Senator Atkins' website, the executive director of Equality California said that "It is up to an individual – not a judge or even a doctor – to define a person’s gender identity"...yes, given that there is absolutely no concrete, tangible way to determine a person's gender, we agree it must be a matter of opinion and left to the sole discretion of each individual. 

“Our society is becoming more enlightened every day about gender identity,” Senator Atkins said. “It’s time for our state to make it easier for transgender Californians and those who don’t conform to traditional notions of gender to have state-issued identification documents that reflect who they truly are. This bill will help them avoid the discrimination and harassment that too many of these residents face in their daily lives.”


Senator Wiener said, “Our trans brothers and sisters are under attack in far too many parts of this country and this world. Now, more than ever, California must lead on trans inclusion and ensure that our entire community can live with dignity and respect. This legislation is an overdue step forward.”


Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, added, “Whether going through airport security, voting, or applying for a bank account, everyone needs an accurate ID to safely navigate life. Yet outdated laws and other barriers have blocked almost 70 percent of transgender people from updating all of their identity documents, and one-third of transgender people have been harassed, assaulted, or turned away when seeking basic services. SB 179 will help California lead the way in reducing these barriers and help ensure that everyone can be legally recognized for who they are and can move safely through the world.”


Rick Zbur, executive director of Equality California, added, “This bill honors an individual’s most basic right: self-identification. It is up to an individual – not a judge or even a doctor – to define a person’s gender identity. This groundbreaking legislation will ensure that California supports and values its transgender and gender non-conforming residents and fully includes them in the fabric of our society.”



And some more for Senator Atkins' website:

Current law creates onerous and unnecessary barriers for people who wish to apply for a change in gender on their state-issued identity documents. One of the most significant of these barriers is the requirement of a physician’s sworn statement certifying the extent of medical treatment received by someone during their gender transition. Additionally, a person seeking a gender-change or name-change court order must appear in court even if nobody has filed objections to their petition. Finally, there are no provisions in state law that allow nonbinary people – those who self-identify as neither male nor female – to choose a gender marker on state documents that reflects their gender identity.


Senators Atkins and Wiener’s legislation would:


  • remove the requirement to obtain a physician’s sworn statement;
  • ensure that those filing petitions for gender-change court orders, as well as corresponding name-change court orders, need not appear in court for a hearing unless someone has filed timely objections to their petitions;
  • create a process by which individuals younger than 18 years old can apply for a change in gender on their birth certificate; and
  • create a third gender marker for nonbinary individuals seeking to amend their gender on birth certificates, driver’s licenses and state identification cards, and in gender change court orders.

We simply can't wait for this legislation to take effect so that the taxpayers of California can spend millions of dollars changing DMV forms that will finally allow the 0.3% of the population impacted to publicly assert their chosen gender identity...frankly we're disappointed and ashamed that a progressive state like California allowed such atrocities against our "gender fluid" citizens to persist for so long.

Oh, to be alive when the last of these lunatics breathes its last.  That moment will herald the rebirth of a sane world.

This rule is not inclusive enough and is racist against the other 160 other genders.

Think of how small this non-binary "constituency" must be... yet, it consistently gets traction.

People need to think about THAT.  There's an agenda afoot and it never slows down.

Why are we even talking about this? Live and let them live and concentrate on the important things, like debt.

Is there anyone/anything that the Left hasn't turned into some sort of "Victim" (other than Conservatives)?

DPRK has gone full retard.

You never go full retard.

Let's find something a little less offensive than "Non-binary"-

I prefer the french/latin derivation- "Trannie"

Fixed it. 

Move on.

I love women so much I deny hairy guys the privilege of that appellation. Therefore I am a philogynist.

This will be a BOON to the ADA act leech lawyers who send around disabled people to file suits against businesses. Now I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that an addendum to Cali law will find its way through the legislature that says that if  biz's don't have a additional gender neutral bathroom and approriate hemaphrodite and androgenous equipment in the exact required configuration a lawsuit will be forthcoming.

Let these regulating activist lefty SJWs KILL Cal business with this crap and chase it all out before they vote to leave the union. Then rename the starving Socialist shithole that's left Calvenzuela.

Gender neutral bathrooms are transphobic, didn't you get the message? You try to envision the insanity and their twisted reality races right on past.

Nothing is important until it lands on your doorstep. Everything we see are symptoms, markers, red flags warning us. We can bitch about currency, debt and privacy issues, but the real monster in the room is NATURE.

Nature does like being fucked around but is not real grand about providing clear warnings to those not intent on close attention.

Dogs sleeping cats and such shit is a deep fundamental sign. People who can't make up their mind to their sexual identity provide another sign.

I don't care what you do beyond understanding what it means. People so consumed about their identity to the point of actually altering their bodies have deep mental problems.

As much as we enjoy sex, it was designed to provide function, procreation. Doing anything that perverts that is a perversion. Not illegal, not necessarily bad, just a perversion, like using a crescent wrench for a hammer.

Its a sign. Make of it what you will, but we have seen it before..... but don't pay any attention to that. Just have a good time, express endless love and acceptance to the "heroes" of our time. It will be FINE.

Had to give you a greenie for "...just a perversion, like using a crescent wrench for a hammer."


GREAT example!

Cali has the right idea they are just using the wrong term.  There are Male, Female and Gelding.  Once you have your stuff chopped off you are a Gelding!

Nope snowflakes, you are either an inny (girl) or outy (boy). It matters not what madness swirls through your mind.

Seems the simpler the concept, the more they fuck with it and fuck it up.

I fear that won't be enough. We need a huge quake to take everything west of the Rockies.

Please, no, spare Nevada.   You only need to take San Francisco, actually (but you can have LA and Sacramento too if you want).   Definitely let us keep the Sierra.

But, but, but... what about Hermaphrodites who have both? This California law is a travesty and outrage for 0.002% of the population.

Agenda seems to be: Destroying core family and societal values. Then let the state provide those values to your kids so that the americans can be enslaved without even noticing.

The left controls the education of our children. They have been reprogramming our children for decades now already and the effect is starting to show. They are playing a long game.

It is because progressives HAVE to continue to be progressive or they aren't PROGRESSIVE anymore!!!   oh no!! they will end up just being REGULAR!!!   the horror!!

Youre right. These lgbtqpb filth make up genders and name shame everyone who apposes it as genderphobes or some such ridiculousness. We should just torch the whole state and start over. Im sure God has a plan for the evil filth of commiefornia. Asteroid maybe?

But they're under attack! I mean, I haven't seen any evidence of that. It's not like literally every human being has a camera on them in the US. And even if they got a video - who'd want to see it? What Prestitute would want to break the video of some trans getting beat down?

Oldwood's picture

If they "perceive" doubt in their sexuality, why would it be surprising that they "perceive" they are under attack? 

If I had a penis that I didn't believe was mine, I'd probably be paranoid too. What is natural is not to doubt our sexuality but to simply feel cheated in our adendums. Not me of course!

Got The Wrong No's picture

"What is natural is not to doubt our sexuality but to simply feel cheated in our adendums."

True. Having the affliction of not being implemented with a grandiose Addendum I naturally never questioned my sexuality.

Goes back to the entire victim ideology of the left. Sickening

"Our trans brothers and sisters are under attack..."


If these things are "non-binary" then wouldn't they get all triggered and shit if you called them "brothers" or "sisters"?

ACP's picture

Absolutely right...that was a very bigoted statement and the author should be bullied to death on twitter.

Ignatius's picture

"Having been found guilty of the charges before this court, I sentence thee to death by Twitter bullies."

"Gee, Judge, seems a bit harsh."
