Gavin Newsom, California’s Democrat governor, has defied his own party by blocking a law meaning divorcing parents could have lost custody of their children if they refused to accept their gender identity.
Democrats in the state said parents who do not “affirm” their child’s chosen gender could have a “detrimental impact on [their] mental health and well-being”.
Under the plans, judges in custody cases would be required to consider whether parents recognise their children as transgender as part of a standard test on “the health, safety, and welfare of the child”.
Parents who did not accept their child’s chosen gender identity may have been less likely to be given custody.
For that we can be thankful, one of them at least begins to get it…..
