Only In Cali: New Bill Would Imprison Healthcare Workers For Using Incorrect Pronouns With Patients

Tyler Durden's picture

California has a well-earned its reputation for introducing wacky legislation. Jerry Brown's bill specifically written to regulate cow farts is a personal favorite of ours.  For those who missed it the first time around, here is a brief recap of our post entitled "Only In California - Governor Jerry Brown Signs Bill To Regulate Cow Flatulence":

In yet another attack on California businesses, yesterday Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill (SB 1383) that requires the state to cut methane emissions from dairy cows and other animals by 40% by 2030.

 

According to a statement from Western United Dairymen CEO, Anja Raudabaugh, California's Air Resources Board wants to regulate animal methane emissions even though it admits there is no known method for achieving the the type of reduction sought by SB 1383.

 

"The California Air Resources Board wants to regulate cow emissions, even though its Short-Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP) reduction strategy acknowledges that there’s no known way to achieve this reduction."

 

Among other things, compliance with the bill will likely require California dairies to install "methane digesters" that convert the organic matter in manure into methane that can then be converted to energy for on-farm or off-farm consumption.  The problem, of course, is that methane digesters are expensive and with California producing 20% of the country's milk we suspect that means that California has just passed another massive "food tax" on the country.

But a new bill penned by Senator Scott Wiener of San Francisco, dubbed the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights (or SB-219 if you're into the whole brevity thing), takes wacky California legislation to a whole new level.  Among other things, the bill makes it illegal for employees of any "long-term care facility" to "willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns."

This bill would enact the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights. Among other things, the bill would make it unlawful, except as specified, for any long-term care facility to take specified 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, including, among others, willfully and repeatedly failing to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns, or denying admission to a long-term care facility, transferring or refusing to transfer a resident within a facility or to another facility, or discharging or evicting a resident from a facility.

Wiener

 

Meanwhile, here are couple of other actions that will now be considered a crime for healthcare workers in California:

(2) Deny a request by residents to share a room.

 

(3) Where rooms are assigned by gender, assigning, reassigning, or refusing to assign a room to a transgender resident other than in accordance with the transgender resident’s gender identity, unless at the transgender resident’s request.

 

(4) Prohibit a resident from using, or harass a resident who seeks to use or does use, a restroom available to other persons of the same gender identity, regardless of whether the resident is making a gender transition or appears to be gender-nonconforming. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, requiring a resident to show identity documents in order to gain entrance to a restroom available to other persons of the same gender identity.

 

(5) Willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.

 

(6) Deny a resident the right to wear or be dressed in clothing, accessories, or cosmetics that are permitted for any other resident.

 

(7) Restrict a resident’s right to associate with other residents or with visitors, including the right to consensual sexual relations, unless the restriction is uniformly applied to all residents in a nondiscriminatory manner. This section does not preclude a facility from banning or restricting sexual relations, as long as the ban or restriction is applied uniformly and in a nondiscriminatory manner.

So what is the punishment for failing to observe someone's preferred pronouns?  Oh, just a year in prison and a $1,000 fine, according to CBN...

Just to clarify, 'choosing' your own gender and imprisoning people for failing to observe that 'choice' is wholly consistent with 'science' but Republicans are 'science deniers' for having the audacity to even question inconsistencies in climate change data....got it.

Research (((The Kalergi Plan))), because THAT IS PRECISELY AND LITERALLY WHAT IS TAKING-PLACE AGAINST OUR NATION, ESPECIALLY TO AND IN CALIFORNIA, Ladies and Gentlemen.

 

(((The malefactors))), their goy-minions, and the lowest-on-their-totem-pole, the useful-idiots, ARE DOING TO OUR NATION, WHAT (((THEY))) DID TO POST-CZARIST-RUSSIA, AKA (((THE SOVIET UNION))), UNDER-THE-GUISES OF (((THE BOLSHEVIKS))).

 

It is all true, it is all happening, and WE KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING--that is the one benefit that WE, ALL, have on our side, Folks...

Share this EVERYWHERE that you people are able, please:  http://www.investopedia.com/news/soros-bets-against-trump-13f-sec-filing...

 

"George Soros, the billionaire chairman of Soros Fund Management, LLC, has long been opposed to President Donald Trump, making his views clear at a number of public speeches and engagements. According to a report by Reuters, the investor indicated earlier this year that he felt that markets would falter due to uncertainty concerning the President. Now, according to U.S. regulatory filings that Soros Fund filed in the past few days, it seems that the billionaire has matched up his investments with his predictions. As of June 30, Soros held a number of positions which were likely to profit if the financial markets did, in fact, stumble.

Soros Was Convinced Trump Would "Fail"

As of January of this year, Soros spoke at a dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, predicting that Trump's actions would lead him to falter. "It's impossible to predict" the actions of the political newcomer, Soros suggested, but the billionaire remained "convinced that he is going to fail."

Now, the investor's 13F from Q2 of this year reveals that he held put options on iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM)

 Each of these three names is an exchange-traded fund which tracks a different broad U.S. stock market index. By definition, puts generate profit for their holders when the equity that they are tied to declines in value, so Soros is effectively betting against a number of broad market indices. All together, the Soros puts as of the end of Q2 were valued at almost $1.8 billion, and they constitute three of the four largest holdings made public in the 13F report."...

 

To-boil-it-down, this is PRIMA-FACIE evidence that (((gyorgi schwartz))), AKA, the demon (((soros))), is preparing for an inevitable destruction of President Trump's Administration, which is LITERAL TREASON and SEDITION, and plans to make a massive fortune from our nation's destruction.

 

PLEASE, if anyone can inform Genius Bannon, President Trump, or ANYONE who is able to get this information to the people whom can do something with it, DO IT, ASAP.  This literal insurrection and coup-d'etat MUST!!! be thwarted.

 

Thank you.

My doc calls them "Trannies"- works for me....

However, if you put him in a corner, he'll gladly revert to "fucked up freakshow"-  that one isn't covered under this new mandate, as it's gender neutral.....

Use a nationalized sick care to our advantage and give these lunatics the care they so badly need...in the form of eugenics.

Such a plan would need to be fully executed before the left re-takes the ring of power.

I have the solution, anyone who ever brings this up you call them 'person' to their face and 'it' when you refer to them.  "Hello person, are you hungry?  It's hungry, bring it a meal."

land_of_the_few's picture

Good plan, I *always* refer to people as "it" or "that thing" in their presence if they have pissed me off enough. :D

Of course this is nothing to do with gender-confused people, just garden variety assholes...

"prima-donna princess f*cking tippy-toes" is also a favorite right now, that might work nicely on men too :P

Wiener must be called what he is. A wiener.

How about this?

"The problem, of course, is that methane digesters are expensive and with California producing 20% of the country's milk we suspect that means that California has just passed another massive "food tax" on the country."

This would Actually just make California's milk more expensive than milk produced elsewhere. That 20% share would drop precipitously as other areas would increase production at a lower cost.

Okay, I can play this game...

My personal "preferred pronoun" is:

Well, I gender-identify as a marijuana plant so that makes my preferred personal pronoun "Your Highness" when dealing with 'ticians and their minions. My friends can still call me Stoner, though.

What are we talking here...30 minutes of burning vs 50-70 years of exhaling? Not to mention the elimination of communist horseshit. I think this fire idea is win-win

Too bloody. Need more strateeegery here. Bullets are inefficient compared to control of food, water, and medicine. Promoting socialized medicine neutralizes the BernieBots, and other Communists.

Mandatory sterilization for IQ < 90 would be a good start. The program could be expanded from there, if we actually find an r-selective gene.

The only silver lining here is that as I upvote you, you are 24 to 0.

People are waking up and accepting of ''over the top'' comments...which simply means that the Overton window did move quite a bit in the past few years....

I say let's blow up the Overton house.

The massive rise in censorship is a big tell, few publications allow comment sections and more books and websites etc are being banned every day - folks are noticing. It looks like the great days of burning 34,635 titles (that is titles not copies!) overseen by guess who?

So does that mean if a doctor  or other health care provider describes one as being presented as a faggot, non-binary faggot,   transsexual faggot,  or some  other kind of faggot,,,,

"Only in Cali" is wrong. In Canada they already have a similar statute but it applies to everybody. The measure of a felony crime is now whether some officially sanctioned victim group member feels insulted.

Not that this is historically new.

In the past it signaled the end of societies , like Greece and Rome.

Yeah, no kidding.

It seems to be a memory challenge, for staff to have to commit to recalling alternate genders for some people.

Thus, I can forsee them putting large signs outside patients' doors, stating what gender(s) the person has chosen, possibly with a time-table for alternating.

Mr. Caz, and others, you DO all know the literal definition of "psychosis" is "broken-from-reality, generally to-the-point of causing harm and/or disturbance to oneself, and often-times, to those around the subject", yes?

 

THAT, Ladies and Gentlemen, is what has been done to our society, AT-LARGE, by those IN-CONTROL of our organs-of-society, like (((the media))), (((Hollyweird))), the (((teLIEvision- and music-industries))), our (((pharmaceutical-corporations))), our (((education-system))), AD-FUCKING-INFINITUM.  We are having done to OUR nations of "The West", what was done to the nation-states making-up (((The Soviet Union))), especially what was done to and against Ukraine, by (((the usual-suspects))), and WE ALL KNOW-FOR-A-FACT THAT THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING.

 

It is terrifying, isn't it, once one realizes THE TRUTHS AS THEY ARE?  

 

So, THE question that EVERY CITIZEN OF OUR NATION MUST BE ASKING IS WHY AREN'T THESE LITERAL TRAITORS, SEDITIONISTS, TERRORISTS, SHIT-STIRRERS, AND DESTROYERS-OF-SOCIETY, BEING THWARTED BY LAW-ENFORCEMENT???!!??!!??  WHY, OH WHY, is this ABJECT-CRIMINALITY being ALLOWED to proliferate??!!??!?!!?  Where-the-FUCK!!! is Attorney-General Jeffrey Sessions, when he is NOT chasing-after pot-heads and Medicare-fraudsters?!!?!  *shakes head in absolute contempt and disgust*

 

Extrapolate-out what all of this means, and it WILL keep-you-awake-at-night.

Trannie is short for transmission, found in almost all cars and trucks.

Gay means happy and carefree.

A gay trannie implies a happy gear shifter

No mention of sexual orientation  :)

So on the way home from the beach today....my wife and I are listening to Satellite Radio and we toggle from Fox to MSNBC to CNN...to get a grip on the "Spin" for the day.  Chris Mathews just can't keep talking all over everyone.  Wolf Blitzer  (Who names their kid Wolf?) he can not keep his liberal horsehit views out of any story....what an ass.  And Fox has gone down the shitter too...  Everything is a shitshow...all of us here(At ZH) see what is coming.  Race War, Inequality war, SJW war, Snowflake battle....whatever you want to call it.  My wife asked "Why don't we just break the USA into 2 parts?....The Conservative Working mans part....and then the EBT, Non Working, Drug Infested, leech on the system part....the only catch is...both new sides need to figure out their own way of support...they can't cross the border"  She had a point.....I think it is already headed that way.  The War is coming.  And I will tell you one thing....these Antifa/Liberal/SJW/etc people have not pushed the "REAL" Trump supporter to the edge yet.  I would advise them to stop...but you know what happens when you speaks sense or logic to these people.  When the people like my Dad take up arms....watch out.

You guys ready? Because I guarantee you there is no turning back on this fucking ride.....You are on it till the end...

Exactly right. Because the Trump voter has something to fight for. Big difference in the lengths someone will go to, to protect what he has earned and built, versus someone who gets a govt handout, is wealthy due to not cause of his own, or runs around feeling entitled and butt-hurt over SJW shit.

We'll give these fuckers something to cry about!

I am going to be in Berkeley on the 27th. I want to see this with my own eyes. 

Remember this though...the far right and far left are one in the same in that they are both the polar opposite of the Liberty movement. 

That is the prize. Liberty. The solution is the constitution.

I don't think there's a government solution.  It will always be with us.
