The law states that retail stores with 500 or more workers must sell toys and child care products (excluding clothes) in a gender-neutral section that's "labeled at the discretion of the retailer ... regardless of whether they have been traditionally marketed for either girls or for boys."
Retailers can continue to offer other toys and child care goods that are traditionally marketed specifically toward girls or boys.
Companies that fail to comply with the new law could face a civil penalty of $250 for a first violation and $500 for any subsequent violations.
The supporters claim the law will help end "harmful sterotypes." I have my doubts.
Regardless, it's really strange to me that a state should involve itself in store layouts and the labeling of the same. Can laws controlling grocery store layouts be far behind? Should Kosher foods be stocked separately? Is labeling a section as "Asian Foods" encouraging hate?
Yeah, if anyone had any doubts that Newsom was a smooth-brained dipshit, this will hopefully help convince them. I'm on the left and I think this is one of the f-ing stupidest laws I've ever seen. Who does this help? What actual problem is this addressing?
It's yet another bullshit virtue signal to delusional far-left mouthbreathing activists that doesn't appeal to roughly 98% of the population.
I suppose doing dumb crap like this distracts people from criticizing him for doing fuck all to address California's housing crisis, electricity crisis, water crisis, "homeless person feces in the street" crisis," etc. The California forest fires are a perfect metaphor for that shit hole of a state.
