A proposed California bill would fine any retail business that doesn’t create a unisex, gender neutral space in its toys and apparel sections.
The creators of the bill, Assembly Members Evan Low (D) and Cristina Garcia (D), want any business with more than 500 employees that violates the bill to be fined $1,000.
The proposed bill would prevent businesses from displaying any signage indicating if a product is intended for a boy or girl. In addition, company websites would be required to show categories labeled as “kids,” “gender neutral” or “unisex.”
The bill is scheduled to be heard at a committee in March.
Assemblyman Low has been advocating for more stimulus money for small businesses in California, yet he wants to turn around and fine them if they don’t conform to his gender ideology.
“This is an issue of children being able to express themselves without bias,” Low told Politico in a recent interview.
Last time I checked, there wasn’t a password for me to go shop in the men’s section. Heck, they often have better graphic tees anyway, and I’ll go look at them. Nothing prevents me from shopping anywhere in a store.
And if I had a daughter that liked to play with toy cars as well as baby dolls, I’d let her play with both, but that doesn’t make her a boy. I don’t need gender neutral signs to tell me where to shop.
