Apparently, no department is safe from busybodies pushing a gender-confusion agenda.
Of course, the so-called “mainstream” media is focusing on everything leftists didn’t get as they rapidly implement strategies to have our children grow up in a world completely designed to advance their political goals.
And a new law in this blue state is just one more way to sneak left-wing ideology into our everyday lives by solidifying corporate compliance – and creating roadblocks to growth for small businesses owned by conservatives.
According to a CBS article, California has become “the first state to say large department stores must display products like toys and toothbrushes in gender-neutral ways.”
No doubt, there will be a big push to ensure other blue states fall in line quickly with similar legislation.
The article then goes on to lament how activists failed to fully abolish boys and girls departments, but merely requires businesses to provide an additional department with a “reasonable” amount of items from both departments.
The law was pushed by Assemblyman Evan Low, a Democrat from San Jose who said that he was, “inspired by the 10-year-old daughter of one of his staffers, who asked her mom why certain items in the store were ‘off limits’ to her because she was a girl.”
Rather than invite the girl into the next aisle – or even educate her on the Golden State’s most famous (or infamous) gunslinging cowgirls – the adults around her decided to use it as an excuse to infringe on the freedom of private business owners and stick their political noses in an area that can be completely handled by consumers who already choose which businesses they will support.
While the article notes that small business owners with less than 500 employees are exempt–this is just another layer of regulations discouraging small business growth and forcing conservative business owners to choose between following their conscience and growing their bottom line.
This new law is just one of many California Governor Gavin Newsom, emboldened by the recent failed recall election, has signed into law in the past few weeks.
According to a Newsweek article, Newsom has signed 92 percent of bills sent to him by California’s Democrat-controlled legislature.
“The result of Newsom’s work has meant ‘oodles of progressive legislation and oodles of virtual signaling,’ said Bill Whalen, a policy fellow at the Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank at Stanford University. ‘Traditionally, we have Governors who have been more centrist than Newsom,’ Whalen said. ‘With the recall now gone, this is a governor who is really not threatened in any way.’”
California businesses, however, have plenty to be worried about as they try to figure out how to comply with a law that calls on them to arrange toys and all “childcare items” in a way that will appease activists who seem unlikely to stop pushing their agenda until every traditional, conservative norm in American society has been dismantled.
