California Assembly Members Evan Low (D-Cupertino) and Cristina Garcia (D-Los Angeles) have introduced new legislation that would make it a crime for businesses in the state that sell children’s toys to separate them based on gender.
Should a retailer be caught selling girls’ toys and boys’ toys in different areas of the store, it could be slapped with a $1,000 civil fine. The new rule would only apply to retail department stores that have more than 500 employees.
Low and Garcia believe that selling children’s toys in a “gender neutral” format is the only inclusive option. Anything less represents a hate crime against people who reject biology but still support sCiEnCe.
“Brick-and-mortar shops would have to display the majority of their products and clothing aimed at children in one undivided, unisex area on the sales floor,” reports Christian Britschgi for Reason.
“They’d also be barred from putting up signage that would indicate whether a product was intended for a boy or girl.”
California-based online retailers would also be forced to sell only “gender neutral” toys
Online retailers based in California would likewise be bound by the new rules, which would require them to sell children’s toys in a “gender neutral” format. Labeling a toy as being for a boy or a girl would be strictly prohibited.
The bill is almost identical to one proposed by Low last year. He is hellbent on ensuring that children are “able to express themselves without bias,” which can only happen, in his view, if stores are strong-armed into pretending as though biology does not exist.
Biology denial is becoming a real problem on the left, which refuses to accept the fact that humans come in two varieties: male and female. Democrats would rather pretend as though there is no such thing as gender as they attempt to force everyone else into agreement.
“The policy behind this bill is not only important in regards to addressing perceived societal norms but also ensuring that prejudice and judgment does not play a prominent role in our children’s lives,” Low is quoted as saying last year. “I look forward to working on this issue in the future.”
Big-box retailer Target already voluntarily adopted a gender neutral format for children’s bedding and toys back in 2015. Target did not, however, eliminate all gender distinctions in its store layout and signage, emphasizing that “some cases, like apparel, where there are fit and sizing differences” would still be sold in separate male and female areas.
Under Low’s bill, however, Target could be forced to remove all gendered labeling and signage in order to avoid “offending” the Cult of LGBTQ with biological facts that tend to upset its mentally ill members.
Forcing retailers to eliminate gender distinctions violates First Amendment
Should it pass, the Low and Garcia genderless children’s toys bill would likely be challenged in court as unconstitutional for violating the First Amendment. It would also set brick-and-mortar retail stores at a competitive disadvantage, even as many of them struggle due to Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdowns and other restrictions. It’s enlightening to see where politicians’ priorities lie.
“Progressive politics is a fundamentalist religion,” wrote one Reason commenter. “There is no end to their attempt to re-shape every aspect of society and culture. This sort of crap will never stop with them.”
“Aren’t these lawmakers codifying the concept of gender with this bill?” asked another, pointing out an obvious irony. “They’re acknowledging boys and girls are distinct things, which seems awfully bigoted of them.”
