Gov. Newsom Mandates Gender-Neutral Aisles In Toy Stores

Fact checked
Gavin Newsom

Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill on Saturday that requires large toy retailers in California to provide gender-neutral toy sections in their stores.

Doesn’t Newsom have more imprortant issues to fix?

Oh yes…he also signed legislation on Friday that forces all public schools to provide free menstrual products in male bathrooms.

Now toy retailers with more than 500 employees have been forced to display toys traditionally marketed at girls or boys together in a special area of floor space.

According to the bill’s text the area can be “labeled at the discretion of the retailer”

RT reports: The bill describes the traditional labeling of toys, for example dolls for girls, trucks and guns for boys, as making “it more difficult for the consumer to compare the products and incorrectly impl[ying] that their use by one gender is inappropriate.”

Stores will still be allowed to maintain separate boys and girls sections, but failing to provide a gender-neutral aisle will be punishable by fines of up to $500. Though toy manufacturers have slowly been moving to de-gender their products, California’s law is the first of its kind in any US state.

“Part of it is to make sure if you’re a young girl that you can find a police car, fire truck, a periodic table or a dinosaur,” Assemblyman Evan Low, who introduced the bill, told the Los Angeles Times. “And then similarly, if you’re a boy, if you’re more artistic and want to play with glitter, why not? Why should you feel the stigma of saying, ‘Oh, this should be shamed’ and going to a different location?”

“I think it’s important that we as a state are demonstrating our values of diversity and inclusion.”

Not everyone is as enthusiastic, and the new law was met with ridicule and anger from conservatives online. “Love how a state with high unemployment, crime so bad people are leaving, a homelessness crisis and raging wild fires has the time to mandate gender neutral toys apparently?” one commenter wrote on Twitter.

  1. All I have to say is that Newsom is an idiot because as far as most parents are concerned all toys are gender-neutral.

      • And if they made it blue for girls and pink for boys it still would make the insufferable react in the same way to a child not in uniform.

  2. I think that’s a good thing I always disapproved if gender stereotyping and brainwashing of toddlers as an evil form of early mind control

      • None
        How many hetero did you brainwash Look the science has known for centuries that the majority of people are ZNATURALLY bi sexual In fact until Christianity really there was no such concept as straight or gay or bi sex, there was just sex acts They weren’t brainwashed with heterosexual ideigu which i believe really only came into practice because of syphilis spreading from England’s dirty cities around the world under her imperialism.

      • First off evenif I had raised homo kids that wouldn’t bother be except for bigots and puritanical hypocrites Actually the more gay and kesvuan people now the better for the planet unless they’re total losers who think they have to buy babies from doctor goodies dispensary. Homosexuality naturally increases with population DENSITY and is natural birth control. It’s a good thing.

  3. Because California is Spanish for paradise and because the Americas belong to Spain by papal bull california is to them like Eden or Heaven and that’s why they use the rule of law to make it as if everyone’s fantasy of heaven. Maybe that’s a good thing But they made it the birthplace of Satan as a, legitimate bring, replacing Jesus and the Nativity scene with Satan and Corporate Law. Most people don’t think. So they get used.
