Jerry Brown signs transsexual takeover of California care homes  

Thomasson: "Who could have imagined a law sending Californians to jail for saying 'he' or 'she' in a way the State doesn't like? But it's here."

Sacramento, California -- Veteran California pro-family leader Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, has issued the following statement responding to Governor Jerry Brown today signing, without comment, SB 219, which will force all California long-term care facilities to submit to the tyrannical transsexual agenda, without limit:

"Existing law prohibits care homes from discriminating on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation, or actual or perceived gender identity (HSC 1569.269(b)). Yet this dangerous new law will unnecessarily and excessively penalize certain types of private speech at care facilities, and will impose criminal liability for saying 'wrong' words, including injurious fines and up to a year in jail.

"By imposing severe penalties within a confusing new 'sex change' policy, SB 219 will insensitively condemn care home employees who are non-English speakers and who may misunderstand requests of a resident in gender change transition. Creating harsh criminal penalties is not a sensible solution to delicate communication problems that may arise at care facilities. It's sad that the ruling Democrats ignored the commonsense objections of the California Association of Health Facilities.

"Who could have imagined a law sending Californians to jail for saying 'he' or 'she' in a way the State doesn't like? But it's here. Under SB 219, if a California long-term care home employee refers to a transitioning transgender woman as 'he,' or a transitioning transgender man as 'she,' they can incur a criminal fine and be incarcerated for up to a year, while the care home itself can suffer heavy fines and license revocation by the Department of Public Health, and also incur a fine of up to $150,000 under the state Fair Employment and Housing Act. This merciless squashing of free speech cries out to be ruled unconstitutional."

Understand what SB 219 does:

SB 219 will require all long-term care facilities -- senior homes, convalescent homes, skilled nursing facilities, developmentally disabled, pediatric day health, respite care, etc. -- to fully support transsexuality and cross-dressing, including all types of "sex" unless sexual relations are forbidden for all residents. The bill lacks a religious exemption for residents, employees, managers, or owners.

When SB 219 becomes law on January 1, 2018, it will be unlawful and criminal for any private care facility to:

1. Not call a transsexual's desire pronoun "he" or "she" or the transsexual's new "male" or "female" name.

2. Move or evict a transsexual resident for acting out their transsexual behavior, even if other residents are disturbed by it.

3. Respect the wishes of a person in a shared room not to have a transsexual roommate.

4. Maintain order by keeping biological males and biological females from sharing rooms and beds.

5. Refuse to help dress men in women's clothes or women in men's clothes, since the new law mandates a "right to wear or be dressed in clothing, accessories, or cosmetics that are permitted for any other resident."

6. Protect privacy in men's and women's restrooms and bathing areas, despite the bill's mandate for unisex bathrooms, "regardless of whether the resident is making a gender transition or appears to be gender-nonconforming."

7. Restrict homosexual or transsexual "sex" with other residents or visitors on the premises, unless there is a uniform ban on sexual relations for all residents.

8. Fail to introduce all employees to a new government-endorsed curriculum called, "Building Respect for LGBT Older Adults."

9. Despite all the above, private care centers could not "deny or restrict medical or nonmedical care that is appropriate to a resident's organs and bodily needs." (So, with a cross-dressing biological male, the private care facility would be forced to treat him as a "woman," but then as the man he is in regard to his "organs and bodily needs"?)

SB 219 will force California care facility employees, often Hispana or Filipina women, to abandon all morals, reason, and logic by being legally forced to dress up a biological man, if he demands it, in bra, panties, and women's clothes; being forced to put on him women's earrings and necklaces and panty hose and women's shoes; and being forced to apply make-up, eyeliner, and lipstick.

As LifeSiteNews explains, "if an elderly woman living at a nursing home in California is upset that she has been assigned a severely gender-confused man (say, a man with penis intact and artificially-induced breasts who dresses like a woman) as a roommate, her request to be reassigned another roommate could be termed 'discriminatory.'"
