California may force Gender-Neutrality on Retailers

There are a couple of sayings (at least) that are oft repeated, but bear repeating yet again. No matter how “woke” you think you are, you will never be woke enough, and, leftists will always invent something to fight against – they must always have an antagonist boogeymen.

And the following article from Daily Wire / Conservative Review proves both points once again.

It’s not bad enough that some retail outlets like Target began the policy of men dressed as women being able to use the ladies/girls in-store restrooms and changing rooms. No, now, in California, legislation has been proposed that not only forces retailers to designate “gender-free” shopping areas for children – toys, clothes, etc. – but proposes fining those non-conforming retailers.

Is it wrong to pray that California breaks off from the other contiguous 47 and floats out into the Pacific?

California Bill Requires ‘Gender Neutral’ Stores, Fines Retailers $1000 For Having Separate ‘Boy’ And ‘Girl’ Toy Departments

California’s Assembly is slated to consider a new bill requiring department store childrens’ sections to be largely “gender-neutral” in order to combat “prejudice” and “judgment” against gender non-conforming children.

“Large retailers that sell toys, clothes, and other children’s items in California would have to devote floor space to merchandise marketed to both boys and girls under a new bill,” Politico reported earlier this week. “Stores would be able to sell the same products they do now as long as they maintain some areas where shoppers can find all toys or clothes, regardless of gender-based marketing, under CA AB2826 (19R) from Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell). It would apply to department stores with 500 or more employees beginning in 2023.”

Lowe told Politico that the idea for the bill, which he also introduced last year to little effect, came from one of his staffers, who claims her daughter wanted an item in the “boys” section but felt slighted because she the toy was designated for a male child.

“This is an issue of children being able to express themselves without bias,” Lowe told the outlet.

“Keeping similar items that are traditionally marketed either for girls or for boys separated makes it more difficult for the consumer to compare the products and incorrectly implies that their use by one gender is inappropriate,” the text of the bill notes.
