New California Bill Outlaws ‘Boy And Girl’ Sections In Retail Stores, Will Require Gender-Neutral Spaces

A new bill in the California legislature will force retailers to provide a new gender-neutral section in their stores, removing what is commonly known as “boy and girl sections.”

As the Daily Wire reports, Democratic Assemblyman Evan Low introduced Assembly Bill 2826 (AB-2826) to require “retail department stores with more than 500 employees” to have gender-neutral areas. Retailers that do not comply could be subject to a “civil penalty of $1,000.”

Low’s proposal addresses what he claims are customer complaints of being unable to compare products between sections. It also addresses sections that “incorrectly” imply gender-specific clothes are only appropriately worn by their identifying genders.

The Daily Wire reports:

From the AB-2826 official descriptive text:

Existing law, the Unruh Civil Rights Act, specifies that all persons within the jurisdiction of the state are free and equal, and no matter their sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, citizenship, primary language, or immigration status, are entitled to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, or services in all business establishments of every kind.

This bill would require a retail department store with 500 or more employees to maintain undivided areas of its sales floor where, if it sells childcare articles, children’s clothing, or toys, all childcare items, all clothing for children, or all toys, regardless of whether a particular item has traditionally been marketed for either girls or for boys, shall be displayed. Beginning on January 1, 2023, the bill would make a retail department store that fails to correct a violation of these provisions within 30 days of receiving written notice of the violation from the Attorney General liable for a civil penalty of $1,000, as provided.

California has been forced to address a crisis-level homeless situation in their state, something voters ranked the “top problem” facing the state. These have been made worse by environmental and immigration issues, two other issues ranked by voters as top problems facing their state.

“Gender-neutral spaces for toy stores barely makes the list,” the Daily Wire reports.
