Calif. Gov. Signs Two Key “Transgender” Laws

California Governor Jerry Brown has signed two bills into law that will dramatically impact how normal people are forced to deal with cross-dressers, sex-change recipients, and others labeled “transgendered” throughout the state.

One of the laws, the Gender Nondiscrimination Act, “takes existing protections based on gender identity and expression and enumerates them as protected categories in nondiscrimination laws,” explained the bill’s sponsor, California Assemblywoman Toni Atkins. “In addition, the bill clarifies that gender identity and expression are included in the definition of gender and sex in all California codes.”

What that all boils down to, explained Focus on the Family’s CitizenLink, is that “employers have to allow men to dress like women at work, if that’s their means of ‘gender expression.’” The pro-family group explained that six governmental departments—civil, education, government, insurance, labor, and penal — will be affected by the new law.
