California to Mandate Gender Affirmation for Minors, Even Against Parents’ Wishes

California had already crossed the Rubicon, but it’s now blown up a bridge and set fire to boats. California is preparing to remove parental rights and create a police state where a judge and court must (not can) affirm the “gender identity” of a child. But this same California also requires permission to tattoo a minor. Can you make sense of this? I can’t. If the Democrat supermajority in California gets their way, soon confused children could be taken away from their parents and chemically castrated or mutilated at the request of the minor. Do you think that’s a bit far-fetched? It’s not.

AB 665 was written by Wendy Carrillo, an Assembly member. Eight days ago during a public debate on her bill, she caused the audience to spontaneously laugh when she said:

We will never change a policy that separates children from their families.

The AP, USA Today, and other media outlets are all for the left. So, it’s no surprise that they have published articles claiming that the arguments against the bill are exaggerated. They are not.

AB 665 changes the legal landscape, including specific language. What is AB 665 and what does it do? California is amending its Family Law Code in order to kidnap children who are confused.

Jennifer Kennedy, an attorney from California and a child’s advocate told me via email:

The amendment added to the standard for what constitutes parental responsibility in child welfare. It now requires that parents affirm a child’s gender identity to be deemed fit to provide for “the health, safety, and welfare of the children” by a court.

AB 665 amends Family Code 6924. It amends a law from 1979 that allowed a minor of 12+ to consent to mental health counseling or residential shelter without parental consent or even confirmation notice, but ONLY when “danger guardrails are met”, namely, that the child poses a danger (suicide or danger to others) OR that the child faces danger in the home (abuse or incest). This (older) law protects parents’ custody and prevents their child from being removed without dire, dangerous circumstances.

What does AB 665 do linguistically? This is removing those guardrails. The state can provide both outpatient counseling and inpatient “residential housing” for a 12-year-old who has gender confusion on any given Tuesday. Rest assured that the state will offer counseling.

Wendy Carrillo (the bill’s writer) and Sen. Scott Wiener, who is the guy who wears underwear to Gay Pride Parades, are both super excited about this bill. Both say AB 665 does not “really” alter the law. It does.

What is the current status of AB665? It is on the verge of becoming law.

California has AB 957 as well. AB 957 is entitled: “Affirm Your Child or Say Bye-Bye to Your Kid”.

Kennedy again told me that she saw it as:

AB 957 amends Family Code 3101 The new language will equate a parent’s affirmation of a child’s gender transition to the “health, safety, and welfare” of that child. This will force family court judges in California to give preference to the “affirming” parents, while allowing a vindictive former to claim the other parent is not “safe” and doesn’t care for their child’s health. This is exactly what happened with Abigail Martinez. Her “crime” led to her child being removed.

Note: In the first version of this legislation, “a parent’s affirmation” was to be listed along with a few other unique factors in Section 3011 which a judge of a family court would consider when making custody decisions. The factors listed in Fam Code section 3011 are all negatives. They include drug/alcohol abuse, lack of time with the child, and abuse of family members or children. These factors should be taken into consideration when making a decision that is in the child’s best interest.

The second version added a comma, indicating that a judge must favor the parent who affirms a child “… because affirmation of a child’s gender identity is in the best interest of the child.” This sought to invade judicial discretion and establish, as a matter of law, that only affirmation is in the best interest of a child.

The current version elevates “affirmation”, beyond being just one factor, to include it in the trinity that is “health, safety and welfare” for a child. AB 957 will shackle the judges who haven’t been captured and prevent families from arguing for transition. It will also result in parents who are loving and fit losing custody. AB 957 is also blatantly discriminatory. No parent who believes in God’s perfect design for man and woman and that no child can be “born in the incorrect body” should be forced to violate their religious beliefs and affirm.

Californians are insane. California is run by Democrats who are running wild because they can.

And Gov. HairGel wants to be president.

Buckle up America, we are about to take a bumpy ride.
