California Passes Bill Threatening Custody of Parents Who Won’t ‘Affirm’ Their Kids’ Gender

by Kate Anderson


The California legislature passed a bill Friday that requires a judge to consider whether or not a parent “affirms” their child’s “gender identity” in a custody dispute.

Democratic Sen. Scott Wiener and Democratic Assembly Member Lori Wilson introduced the bill in February, with Wiener claiming that the legislation was needed to protect the “health, safety, and welfare of the child,” according to the Associated Press. The bill passed the state Senate Wednesday with a 30-9 vote before making it through the general assembly only days later at 57- 16.

“This bill, for purposes of this provision, would include a parent’s affirmation of the child’s gender identity or gender expression as part of the health, safety, and welfare of the child,” the legislation reads.

Wilson said during the general assembly that “parents affirm their children, according to a recording of her remarks.

“Typically it happens when their gender identity matches their biological gender,” Wilson said. “But when it doesn’t, the affirmation starts to wane… Our duty as parents is to affirm our children.”

The bill is now headed to Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk to be signed into law.

The governor’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
