Court rules California law requiring use of transgender pronouns is a violation of free speech

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.


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."
