California Governor Gavin Newsome surprised everyone by vetoing a bill that would have empowered the state to take children from parents who refuse to allow their children to go through “gender affirming treatment, “ meaning physical and chemical castration and mutilation to entertain the delusion that a child born one sex can decide to be another.
The move could be seen as a shrewd politician who recognizes that implementing this law will destroy the trans ideology movement once and for all. The moment the state takes kids from parents over trans ideology, the rainbow fascists have lost.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom vetoed a bill that would have pushed parents to “affirm” the gender identities of trans children — bowing to statewide pressure from parents and high-powered critics such as Elon Musk, who called it “utter madness.”
“I share a deep commitment to advancing the rights of transgender Californians, an effort that has guided my decisions through many decades in public office,” the lefty governor wrote in a message issued late Friday amid a flurry of other vetoes.
But the law, he said, would have created a new legal standard “in prescriptive terms that single out one characteristic,” the Sacramento Bee reported.
The measure, Assembly Bill 957, would have told judges to weigh parents’ support of their child’s “gender identity or gender expression” when determining custody or setting visitation rights — a change that Musk, the estranged father of a trans child, decried as “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
