From theblaze.com

The State of California Third District Court of Appeals ruled that a state law requiring the use of preferred pronouns by nursing home workers violated their free speech rights.

The court struck down the pro-transgender regulation on Friday in a unanimous 3-0 decision.

The provision was a part of the LGBTQ Long-Term Care Facility Residents' Bill of Rights passed in 2017 and signed into law by then-Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill's author, state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), released a statement lambasting the decision.

"The Court's decision is disconnected from the reality facing transgender people," said Sen. Wiener.

I see transgender Identity as mental illness appropriation. No different than appropriating dreadlocks or blackface. exploitation of the sensitivities in our society regarding mental illness. we don't hold the mentally ill accountable. transgender is an appropriation of that policy.

Lol inverse reality maybe.

The reality is that you don't choose your sex, you can't change it, and no one assigns it.

A man is a man and that's not just my reality.

I won't participate in your mental illness, seek medical help ! I won't participate in laws that provide special rights rather than equal rights. no one gets to be trans aged. I want to collect social security benefits now, but I must use my biological age.

"The reality facing trans people"

Oh, you mean the reality that one can not change their gender?

Probably something closer to "Please dont be angry. Yes we know we didnt give trannies what they want but the agenda hasnt progressed enough to pull this off yet."

WHy don't the "trans" people take hormones that SUPPORT their anatomy instead of the MOST expensive route?

"Trans senior" L O L

I don't think there are going to be many of those.

I think they just bring things forward for them, so they can enter the nursing home at around 28. That way they can get up to 5 years there before their inevitable demise just like their octogenarian co-residents.

What about the 'N'word? USED for hatred/insult/ANGER at some ACTION taken by the subject, not to incite anybody (in general). YOUR purpose for using the word. That's the trouble with context sensitive grammars. I suppose we should ALL be more like machines (context FREE grammar(s)). Much less confusion.

I wonder who's REAL life was TORN TO SHREDS (FUTURE sacrificed) "fighting" this lawsuit???

Should we ALL walk around on EGGSHELLS to placate the FEW lunatics (evil people) out there who WANT to harm people using THEIR delusions (already manifest I imagine).
