MANHATTAN- Fear not residents of New York State! Gov. Kathy Hochul is in charge and she is prioritizing the most important things impacting residents of the Empire State! Inflation? Gas prices?
Hell no! Hochul, who almost has New Yorkers begging for the days of Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that requires utilities to use “preferred pronouns” in customer correspondence. Thank God! New Yorkers can sleep well tonight knowing that Hochul is on the job.

“Legislation S.5325/A.6193 gives utility customers the right to be addressed and acknowledged by their preferred name and pronouns by requiring utility corporations, municipalities, water-works corporations and telephone service providers to allow customers to use their preferred name and pronouns,” a press release read.
Then, to show she is really on the job, she even tweeted!
“Nearly 80,000 New Yorkers identify as transgender. This #TransAwarenessWeek, I’m proud to sign the Affirming Gender Identity in Utilities Act—common-sense legislation that gives New Yorkers the right to be addressed and acknowledged by their chosen names and correct pronouns.” [emphasis added]

In other words, this act was signed into law for the benefit of a whopping roughly 4/10 of 1% of New Yorkers. Bravo, Gov. Hochul! Oh, and in case you were wondering, Hochul was wearing her “vaxed” necklace to show she’s on Fauci’s team.
New Yorkers were understandably overjoyed by Hochul’s prioritization of what is really important to state residents:
“We’re drowning in this economy. What are you going to do about that?”
We're drowning in this economy.
What are you doing about that?

Oh wait, maybe this one:
“This is what you’re concentrating on with all the issues in this state. Unreal how out of touch you are,” said another.

In announcing the earth-shattering legislation, Hochul, speaking at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in Manhattan said:
“As we witness attacks on LGBTQ+ rights and protections around the country, New York is once again declaring that we are a state for all—one where we don’t needlessly criminalize victims and where our trans, gender non-binary and gender non-conforming communities are affirmed,” the hapless Hochul said in a statement.
“My administration is committed to equality and safety for everyone and New York is able to lead the way because of the work of our tireless advocates and our partners in the legislature. Together we will continue to build a state that is welcoming to all,” Syracuse.com reported Hochul as saying.
Good to see New York has said they “don’t needlessly criminalize” people…perhaps they’ll extend the courtesy to those who don’t wear a mask inside a restaurant or submit to vaccine mandates. You know, important stuff.
The bill’s co-sponsor, also in need of a hobby said:
“At a time when we are witnessing a record number of murders of trans people, particularly trans women, and of anti-LGBT [oops, she forgot the Q+] pieces of legislation in other states across the nation, New York must take leadership and stand against hate,” said state Sen. Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas of Queens in a statement.
“I’m proud to have sponsored legislation which will ensure that transgender people are respected by utility corporations as they do business in our state.”
Not sure if we missed it, but is there some kind of epidemic of utility companies in New York “misgendering” people? And if they are, is it really that big a deal? While people are paying nearly $4 a gallon for gas and food prices are going through the roof, this is what passes for important legislation? Talk about out of touch.
Manhattan state Sen. Brad Hoylman also spoke of something called “deadnamed,” apparently a new word made up by the alphabet mob.
“Nobody should suffer the indignity of being ‘deadnamed’ or being referred to by their non-affirmed name or gender,” said Hoylman. “And with 2021 being the most deadly year for transgender and nonbinary people since the Human Rights Campaign began recording this data, our new law wends an important message of support to the 78,000+ transgender and gender non-conforming people across New York State.”

The indoctrination of our children continues.
In Washington State, Democrats (who else) are pushing a bill that would mandate “comprehensive sexual health education” by the year 2022.
The bill, House Bill 2184 would begin to talk sex to children as young as kindergarten. While most children at that age are usually more interested in playing with dolls or trucks, Democrats would begin the process of pointing children in a different direction.
A group called “Informed Parents of Washington” is warning parents about the dangers of the legislation. The group describes itself as a “collation of parents dedicated to fighting Comprehensive Sexxx Education in our schools and legislation that imposes upon parental rights.”
In a Facebook post, the group said:
“In most cases ‘comprehensive’ doesn’t mean what we think it means. Most of us might think that means the biology of sex and the fertilization process, maybe to include some information about avoiding std’s and pregnancy.
In reality, though, most who promote “comprehensive sex education” are talking about the details of sexual activity and the varieties of sexual stimulation.
Many such programs include subtle (and not so subtle) encouragement for the students to experiment with some or opposite sex partners, instruction on the nature of orgasm and all the ways to achieve it, along with drawings and/or photos shat show them how.”
Democrats say that the bill would establish “equity,” i.e., equal access to health information, especially with regard to the topics of “affirmative consent’ and the needs of LGBTQ students.
Because students in elementary school need to know about that, right?
The Washington Office of superintendent of Public Instruction (OPSI) conducted a survey about sex education in schools, which netted more than 10,000 responses, nearly three-fourths from women.
The state formed a work group that was comprised of 16 women that reviewed K-12 sex education provisions in the state and their final report concluded that “members agree all students would benefit from K-12 comprehensive sexual health education.”
Ironically the survey found that 58 percent of survey respondents said that such a program should NOT be required in grades K-12, while 42 percent said it should be required. So obviously, the survey meant nothing, since these 16 apparently women had their minds apparently made up.
The group stated:
The Sexual Health Education Workgroup agreed that all students in Washington’s public schools should have access to comprehensive sexual health education (CSHE) in grades K-12.
Mandating CSHE is an issue of equity and would help ensure all students across the state receive quality, evidence-informed instruction, regardless of who they are or where they live.
The Workgroup found that several groups are often excluded from relevant, inclusive instruction, including students in and out of home care, students with disabilities, students who identify as LGBTQ+, and English learners among others.
The website of Washington Rep. Michelle Caldier (R) provides a radio report with John Sattgast in Olympia about the bill.
“When I looked at the curriculum, I’d be happy to read some of this stuff, but I will tell you I know that the chair would gavel me because it is completely inappropriate for me to say here,” Caldier said about the proposed mandated sex ed curriculum.
“And I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say on the dais, I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”
Sattgast observed that out of 97 people signed up to testify, only 16 were permitted to do so within the time limit.
Though the bill to mandate comprehensive sex ed died in the last legislative session, the current bill is equally as controversial, stated Washington conservative radio host Jason Rantz of The Jason Rantz Show on AM 770 KTTH.
“And it’s fueled less about meeting the sexual needs of young kids (these needs don’t exist), than it is about pushing a very specific social justice agenda on gender identity for all classrooms,” he stated.
On their Facebook page, Informed Parents of Washington speak to what is actually contained in the curriculum. The group says that exercises given to sixth grade students makes sure that a child having sex is not shamed, while there is no similar concern for those who choose not to have sex. Students are not told about the benefits of abstinence.
The Democrats proposal, called “Rights, Respect, Responsibility: A K=12 Curriculum” apparently replaces the “3 R’s” of our youth (reading, wRiting and aRithmetic) with a new three “R’s”—Rights, Respect and Responsibility.
Under the program, kindergarteners would learn about the proper names for body parts, but only after a “note on language” clarifies that BIOLOGY is SUBSERVIENT to gender identity.
While children in kindergarten will have language that uses the terms ‘girls’ and ‘boys,’ along with ‘male’ and ‘female’, in later grades they will be instructed in proper pronouns according to the alphabet mafia, introducing a “broader concept of gender.”
With the assistance of a PowerPoint presentation, teachers will instruct young children:
Most girls have a vulva which is the name for the area between the legs.
The vulva describes the whole area including the small hole where urine or pee comes out called the opening to the urethra, the hole below that, which is a little bigger and is called the vagina that is used when a female has a baby, and the hole below that where a bowel movement, or poop, comes out called the anus.
So, a person with a vulva has three holes between their legs and a very sensitive little area at the top called the clitoris.
Most boys have a penis between their legs which they use to urinate or ‘pee.’ Some boys have a foreskin, which is a piece of skin that covers the end of the penis and some boys do not. A boy also has a hole where a bowel movement, or poop, leaves the body called an anus, just like a girl.
Kindergarten people. Not wasting any time, when children go to first grade, they get to learn about gender roles. Teachers are instructed to read My Princess Boy prior to the lesson and then ask the children:
“Does the job a person has, or what they wear mean the person is a man or woman?” (No) “Do the activities someone likes to do for fun or what they wear mean they are a boy or a girl?” (No)
Close the lesson by asking “How could you support others in trying new things and participating in activities that some people may sometimes say are only for boys or only for girls?” Ask for volunteers to offer strategies.

(Some responses might include: tell them that you think it’s great; tell them that they shouldn’t listen to what other people think; tell them that you will do it with them; tell them that there is no such thing as girl activities and boy activities, etc.)
Indoctrination. Note the part about not “listen(ing) to what other people think?” Parents? No say?
Fast forward to sixth grade. This is where the gender neutral or gender non-binary nonsense gets touted.
In the proposal, sixth graders would learn “language…that seems less familiar—using the pronoun ‘they’ instead of ‘her’ or ‘him,’ using gender neutral names in scenarios and role-plays and referring to ‘someone with a vulva’ vs. a girl or woman.”
“This is intended to make the curriculum inclusive of all genders and gender identities,” states the proposal.
Once kids reach 15, they are going to be taught that “sexting” is normal sexual behavior. In fact, the teacher’s guide notes that the teacher will have to “ask your IT person at school to unblock the site for you to use in class.”
The homework assignment tells the kids to go out and share their knowledge with at least four friends. Kids are told that “this isn’t easy to talk about and you may still have questions. Remember you can always talk with me…” Meaning the teacher.
This is the Democrat party for you. Anything goes. Parents be damned. The state knows what is better for your children than you do. And we wonder why we are raising a generation of snowflakes?
Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”. While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers. And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.
And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
