California Mandates LGBTQ Books in Schools

The NY Post reports:
California lawmakers passed a bill last week prohibiting books from being banned in public school districts because of content related to gender or racial diversity, and now, the governor is expected to sign it into law.

Last Thursday, Gov. Gavin Newsom showed his support of the bill, suggesting he plans to make it law. ...

Under the bill, school districts would be fined for banning books.

The bill, which was introduced and authored by Assembly member Corey Jackson of Riverside, does not prohibit book banning, though it would impose a fine if books are banned because they contain “inclusive and diverse perspectives.” ...

Jackson’s bill threatens financial penalties against school boards that restrict access to classroom and library materials because they feature LGBTQ people or were written by LGBTQ authors, the bill reads, “discriminates against LGBTQ people and constitutes censorship in violation of California law and policy.”

So public schools have to have LGBTQ propaganda and grooming books for kindergartners.

This video says it offers "updates on the religious right’s war against trans people." It says that the only opposition to the Trans agenda is thinly-disguised religious bigotry. A comment says this is backwards, and that "Woke is a religion".

I agree with that comment. Freedom from religion should mean freedom from wokeness. The pro-LGBTQ lobby pushes their view on everyone with religious zeal. They are more dogmatic than my local preachers.

On the other hand, opposition to pro-LGBTQ books in K-12 schools, and to trans kids, is almost entirely non-religious. Those arguments are mostly about the harms to over-sexualizing children, to sexual grooming, and to medical harms of treatments.

The USA Democrat Party is 100% committed to exposing your kids to queer/tranny propaganda.

Actually, the legislation would prohibit the banning of books due to gender and/or racial diversity. It does not mandate the use of such books. It is a subtle but important distinction.

The legislation is pointless, as it is entirely political theater.

There has always been gender diversity in public schools, it's called Male and Female. Genderless is not a gender, It is the lack thereof, reserved for inanimate objects, or in the case of languages derived from Latin like French or Spanish it is when the gender of something is unknown because it has not yet been determined, kind of like Schroeder's Cat. Once you know, it isn't gender-less anymore. 'They/Them' is not a gender. In the rare exceptional case of people born intersex, it is not considered a separate gender or sex.

Gender Identity is a highly misused term used to describe a mental illness called body dysmorphic disorder, the treatment of which was unfortunately pioneered by one Dr. John Money, a psychologist who basically surgically, emotionally, and sexually abused twin boys to further his personal career. His highly unethical (evil) experiments on the boys resulted in both of their premature deaths. Despite there never being any actual scientific evidence of his assertions, and then his ideas admittingly been proven a failure, his linguistic framework about gender malleability have been the basis of the current 'trans' fad.

The terms Masculine and Feminine already cover mannerisms and behaviors relating to a person, which may or may not align with said person's biological sex. Such terms have no ability to magically confer a different gender, or sex.

It is important to get these distinctions correct so that energy isn't wasted on irrelevant discussion.
