A new gender bill in California has passed both chambers of the state legislature and is awaiting signature from Governor Gavin Newsom.
Assembly Bill 957 is a direct assault upon parental rights, threatening parental custody if a parent is judged by some court to be inadequately supportive or even enthusiastic of a child’s gender identity or expression.
The actual text of the bill makes it clear. When considering child welfare, I quote: “the health, safety and welfare of the child includes … a parent's affirmation of the child's gender identity or gender expression.”
Gender expression can mean almost anything.
It’s hard to imagine legislation more truly radical than this and more truly destructive of the family.
It really is a full assault upon parental rights, which is a full assault upon parenthood, which is a full assault upon the family, predicated on a full assault on marriage itself.
And yes: I meant every word of that, exactly in that sequence.
