Californians should have gotten Governor Gavin Newsom out of the office while they had the chance. Sadly, many Californians listened to the scare tactics deployed by the mainstream media against Newson’s adversary and now the State is stuck with Newson’s tyranny until the next election.
Newsom took a giant leap and over-stepped his position this week when he told stores to submit to liberal agendas ‘or else’. Newsom strong-armed toy stores by threatening hefty fines if they did not offer gender-neutral sections.
“California became the first state in the nation Saturday to adopt a law requiring large retail stores to provide gender-neutral toy sections under a bill signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom.
The new law, which takes effect in 2024, says that retail stores with 500 or more employees must sell some toys and child-care products outside of areas specifically labeled by gender. Retailers can continue to offer other toys and child-care goods in traditional boys and girls sections if they choose to.
Newsom offered no comment on the bill signing, one of several announced in the final batch of legislative actions weighed for the year.
Assembly Bill 1084 continues a gradual shift in the retail industry away from strictly marketing children’s products under traditional gender stereotypes, said Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), who introduced the legislation. Target dropped boys and girls toy sections in 2015, and other retailers have since moved away from gender-specific labels.”
“Clothing will be unaffected, but the law will affect toys and any “childcare items” intended to aid sleep, relaxation, feeding, teething, or sucking”—The BBC report.
In its wording, it said the changes would help consumers spot “unjustified differences in similar products” and tackle gender bias in children’s products.”
“Retailers that fail to comply with the new law will be subject to minimal civil penalties of $250 for a first violation and $500 for additional violations.”—LA Times
Newsom has basically robbed store owners of the right to choose the layout of their own shops and who they want to cater to—Because in California there are no freedoms, just Newsom.
