New California Bill Would Punish Parents for not ‘Affirming’ Their Child’s Gender Identity

New California Bill Would Punish Parents for not ‘Affirming’ Their Child’s Gender Identity

“If parents embroiled in a custody battle were to deny the child’s gender identity, state courts would have the authority to under Section 3011 of California’s Family Code to remove the child from the parent’s home.”

A new bill making its way through the California legislature would punish parents who don’t actively affirm their child’s gender identity.

It looks like all those parents showing up at school board meetings had every right to be concerned. The left is coming for people’s children. We are past the slippery slope.

The Washington Free Beacon has details:

California Bill Would Punish Parents Who Don’t ‘Affirm’ Their Child’s Gender Identity

A newly revised California bill would treat parents’ refusal to “affirm” their child’s gender identity as a violation of health, safety, and welfare in the context of custody disputes.

The bill, which has already passed the State Assembly, would require judges adjudicating such disputes over transgender-identifying children to favor the parent who “affirms” the child’s preferred identity. Earlier this week the authors released an updated version that specifically defines “the health, safety, and welfare” of a child to include “a parent’s affirmation of the child’s gender identity”—a change that the bill’s opponents worry will open the door to non-affirmation being treated as abuse.

“When you say that gender affirmation is in the child’s best interest for health, safety, and welfare, it takes nothing to say [non-affirmation] is now abuse—because you’re not taking care of the health, safety, and welfare if you’re not affirming them,” said Erin Friday, a San Francisco attorney and co-lead of the parent coalition Our Duty.

More from FOX News:

If the newly-amended bill were to go into law parents who do not affirm this new standard of health and safety for their children may be found liable for child abuse and have their young one removed from their home.

Critics of this amended bill claim that it could open the door to legally declare non-affirmation of a child’s gender identity child abuse across the board…

After passing the state assembly and being introduced into the state senate, the bill was amended on June 6, so that its provisions would alter the California Family Code by making affirming gender identity one of legal standards parents have to meet in order to be recognized as providing for the “health, safety, and welfare of the child.”

If parents embroiled in a custody battle were to deny the child’s gender identity, state courts would have the authority to under Section 3011 of California’s Family Code to remove the child from the parent’s home.

This is beyond Orwell. It’s un-American and illogical.

Fascists never rest

    When ya like telling others what to do, ya just might be a Democrat.

    Brandeis’s separate opinion in Olmstead v. US (1928),

    “The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. They recognized the significance of man’s spiritual nature, of his feelings and of his intellect. They knew that only part of the pain, pleasure and satisfactions of life are to be found in material things. They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred against the government, the right to be let alone—the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.”

    Why not? They don’t have to go to work in the morning.

    Smell the green… greenbacks. #HateLovesAbortion

If you have children and live in California and to an extent any blue state you need to leave now while you still can.

    leave your stuff or loose your family.

    Those who choose to stay in CA are funding these insane woke policies. Stop giving these woke weirdo politicians your tax dollars. They ain’t gonna come to a point and say ‘hey, we effed up society enough for now’ and then stop. It’s only going to get worse.

Uh-Oh, . . . CA has set the bar, and NY has to keep up with the CA Joneses. How many weeks until the NY legislature proposes a similar law?

    guyjones in reply to Q. | June 11, 2023 at 4:00 pm

    Yeah, the vile New York Dumbs are always the slavish imitators of Cali Dumb-o-crats’ destructive, idiotic and totalitarian diktats. Then, all the other “blue” states jump into line after these two, like good little lemmings.

California has turned in a Cultural Marxist State, Stealing the children of their citizens, probably a matter of time until other states follow their lead just like other laws the Marxists come up with.

The left has told you for decades you are nothing but an incubator and they determine if and when you have their kids. (see Clinton’s it takes a village idiot)

This is,part of the Leftist claptrap that “it takes a village”. The village will indoctrinate the young, teaching what to think, not how to. With a village in charge there is no individual responsibility, so lowest common denominator rules, excellence is out

    MK Ultra in reply to Romey. | June 11, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    It takes a village to burn a witch.

    henrybowman in reply to Romey. | June 12, 2023 at 1:37 am

    Yup. The timeline is now:
    1) Kid enters school at age 6.
    2) Groomer convinces kid that kid is a trans.
    3) “Advocates” accuse parents of child abuse
    4) Kid is now property of the state.

So, if you live in California and your daughter suddenly identifies as a cowboy do you have to give her a pony? What if she identifies as a meth addict?

Now that there is a state law, who does the kid sue when they grow up and want to father or give birth to a child but find out that the procedures that mutilated their bodies and made them sterile are permanent?

Destruction of blood nuclear families and a massive decrease in society’s capability to give birth… cue bono?

One of the historical facts mentioned during the series “Rome” was that the Romans saw children as little adults. 2000 years and we have gone full circle. Jews forced to live under Roman rule in “Palestine” and Christians in the arena (Latin for sand)…..spoiler alert.

This piece of legislation is child abuse writ large

    guyjones in reply to Steven Brizel. | June 11, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    Yes, child abuse and an obnoxiously totalitarian evisceration/trampling of parents’ rights — all in the name of promoting the “trans” agenda.

      Dimsdale in reply to guyjones. | June 11, 2023 at 7:30 pm

      Eviscerating parent’s rights while eviscerating/vivisecting their children.

      Dr. Mengele, please pick up the red courtesy phone…

In WA, we already have a law that says that a kid can run away from home and get the state to do the medical “gender-affirming care” without the parents’ permission, and without even notifying them. (It was passed and signed by the Governor.)

That’s only a small step from the government pulling them out of the home. They just need to leave home and go to a shelter on their own, and then the state can take over.

    Paul in reply to OldProf2. | June 11, 2023 at 6:46 pm

    And don’t you know there are droves of mentally ill, woke ‘trans’ teachers grooming and convincing kids to run away and get that ‘gender affirming care’.

      A Punk Named Yunk in reply to Paul. | June 12, 2023 at 10:59 am

      Not “mentally ill” teachers. Evil, long-indoctrinated Marxist traitors, hired by Marxist indoctrinated principals, favoring the blue-haired freak in hiring, to pass on their indoctrination to the next generation.

      There was a video of 6th graders booing a “Pride” film being shown in what was supposed to be a math class. Teacher went bananas but it means there’s some hope. They actually complained “Why are you showing this to us?”. And teacher called THEM inappropriate.

Once this is enacted, parents with minor children remaining in California are going to be guilty of child endangerment. Of course not legally so under California law, morally so.

The vile Dumb-o-crats are really going off a cliff with their insane, obnoxious and totalitarian pro-tranny fanaticism, child-grooming/indoctrination and misogyny. The 2024 presidential election contest will reveal whether the Dumbs actually pay an electoral price for that fanaticism.

The dystopian world described in “Brave New World” sounded awesome to the far left.

Democrat advocacy for Sterilization, Abortion, and Diversity (SAD). Hee haw.

The vivisection of our children is not a positive sign for our civilization.

But who ever said Democrats were civilized?

George_Kaplan | June 11, 2023 at 11:54 pm

How would this bill work with parents who live across state lines? Could California transfer custody to the Californian pro- child mutilation parent and the other state declare their parent to have custody because they’re willing to not mutilate children?

Would it be kidnapping to seize a child and transfer them across state lines to the parent deemed to have custody? Would Biden’s DOJ or FBI get involved?

Seems like this has the potential to go nuclear.

If it passes it will make U-Haul very happy! Their only problem now is how to get all of the trailers BACK to CA.
