California Assembly Announces Nation’s First Transgender History Month

‘California has become a sanctuary state for the trans community’

By Katy Grimes, September 7, 2023 8:37 am

The California State Assembly voted Wednesday to recognize August as “Transgender History Month,” beginning in 2024. Assemblyman Matt Haney (D-San Francisco) introduced HR 57 on August 29th, and it was passed by the Assembly Rules Committee August 31st. Wednesday the full Assembly passed the Resolution.

Honey Mahogany, chair person of the San Francisco Democrat Party, said based on “attacks on the trans community,” including “attempts at legislating against our community,” “it is important that we stop spreading misinformation about the trans community.”

Speaking of misinformation… “attacks” on the trans community are efforts by parents and lawmakers to keep drag queens out of public schools, and putting a stop to trans athletes taking over women’s sports.

Assemblyman Matt Haney (D-San Francisco), the bill’s author, said, “I couldn’t be more proud to have introduced legislation that will designate August as the first statewide Transgender History month in the nation,” Fox 40 reported.

Jorge Reyes Salinas of Equality California says the advocacy group supports the bold stance by the state Assembly, CBS News reported. “Especially now, in a time that we are seeing a constant, week-after-week attacks against the LGBTQ+ community, especially the transgender community,” said Salinas. “It’s really a reminder that California stands behind the trans community and now more than ever we are not giving up on reinforcing that value.”

Assemblyman Haney said in the press conference that California has become a sanctuary state for the trans community. “California is the first state in the country to recognize transgender history month.”

Assembly Rules Committee analysis of HR 57 makes the following legislative findings:

  1. 1)  The suppression of gender variance among indigenous California cultures by Spanish and later Anglo settlers was a foundational event of the history of the state, as documented in the journal of soldier Pedro Fages, who wrote in 1775 about native peoples he encountered near present-day San Diego, whom he described as “those Indian men who, both here and farther inland, observed in the dress, clothing, and character of women… They are called joyas, and they are held in great esteem.”
  1. California has long been the epicenter of the trans liberation movement, possessing suitable historical qualities sufficient for the recognition of Transgender History Month as an opportunity to provide education, insight, and awareness of the monumental contributions to Golden State history by transgender Californians.

  1. These silly Asm reps are just nakedly going for the laughs and derision now. “Transgender indigenous peoples were once celebrated and held in high esteem” is part of their ridiculous spiel? —– according to an entry in some guy’s journal someone dug up from 1775?
    Is there any other group out there representing a minuscule .00000001 percent of the population that should also have their own month? Of course we know that the tinier the group the more the lefties, or whatever you want to call them, like to tweak sensible society by blanketing EVERYTHING with it. It’s part of their psycho game. (And by the way, doesn’t Asm Matt Haney (D-San Francisco) have a boatload or two of more pressing issues in his district than THIS, all of which require his immediate attention?)
    Calling all Furries! You need to get on the stick and organize ASAP to demand a state legislative resolution for YOUR very own calendar month . YOU are being discriminated against. Clearly.

    1. Showandtell, I say we need a Heterosexual History Month. This would include flying a Heterosexual Pride Flag at all governmental buildings and having a Heterosexual Pride Parade that would include: floats, clothed Heterosexual couples, children, and all religious groups.

      1. Ha ha John! THAT would be a shocker, wouldn’t it, normal people on a float going down a major boulevard; modestly dressed and maybe even smiling sweetly. You USED to have something like that with the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, but seems to me we’re seeing less and less of it as the years go by with all the corp and charity leftward turns. Maybe we could visit the Huntington Beach Independence Day Parade next year —- haven’t seen it myself but I hear it’s a nice wholesome one, possibly very much along the lines of what you describe. Just don’t expect the CA Assembly to endorse it 🙂

  2. This is nonsense. How is it that the people of CA have no say in this matter?
    It’s ironic on several fronts since, 1) Most people aren’t even aware of history in general, but somehow this rises to the importance of being celebrated for a month in CA?; 2) Assuming you can even entertain the idea that transgenderism is a thing (versus a fetish or being gay) how much transgender “history” is there? Who chronicled it?
    This is pure craziness, and our legislature will do nothing to stop it.

    1. You said it, Bminks. And such good points you made re history ignorance in general as well as lack of and sketchiness of “transgender” history. California: Land of Lunatic Leadership

  3. So, Democrat Assemblyman Matt Haney from San Francisco proudly introduced HR 57 on August 29th, it was passed by Democrats on the Assembly Rules Committee August 31st and on Wednesday Democrats in the full Assembly passed the Resolution? Ignoring all the problems that California faces, Democrats rushed to declare August as “Transgender History Month,” and Democrats like Assemblyman Matt Haney with his pink tie have declared California as a sanctuary state for trans mutilations? Not only is the Democrat party a criminal gang, they are also an evil satanic cult?

    1. No kidding, TJ. So smug and clueless about their evildoing. And anyone who thinks that wearing a pink tie makes him some kind of a transgender hero is a dope. Sen Scott Wiener has a pink and blue striped tie for his transgender events.

  4. Can we PLEASE wall off San Franfreakshow and prohibit their politicians from making legislation that affects the rest of California???
    What the HELL is in the water up there???

    1. It’s not San Francisco’s water (which mostly comes from the Hetch Hetchy reservoir in Yosemite). The once great city of San Francisco has been taken over and destroyed by the evil satanic Democrat cabal.

  5. Dying for your country- one day-Memorial Day
    Country’s Birthday-one day- July 4
    Thanksgiving-our unique national holiday-one day

    Gay Pride? One month
    Transgender Pride? One month

    Just sayin…..

  6. One of the great things about living in SF is you get to see and hear everything “unfiltered” by the MSM and get to see up close a very large sample of the various people in question.

    So what I learned over the decades about trannys from very sympathetic articles written in the local freepress (Bay Guardian etc) about tranny support groups is that trannys have a 50%+ institutionalization rate during their lifetimes and a 50%+ attempted suicide rate. Remember, this is institutionalization rate not psychiatric etc treatment rates and medication rates. Which seems to be well over 90%. And these numbers are pretty much the same pre op and post op. In fact post ops often have much worse numbers as they are no longer living in hope for improvement in their situation.

    These are the sort of numbers you see for serious paranoid schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Trannys are seriously mentally ill people. According to their own support groups in the past. Very much in the serious problems end of DSM.

    And in person. At least for male trannys I have yet to meet one that was not a sociopath / psychopath to some degree or other. Those of you very familiar with non tranny sociopaths and psychopaths will have seen the pattern. The female ones hard to tell from bull-dikes but the personality looks about the same. Usually not nice people.

    As for why now. Trannys made into a political football. Follow the money. Gay Rights political lobbing is worth well over $100M a year and after the Gay Rights lobby organizations had got everything you read about in the Gay Lib books of the 1960’s and 1970’s, no matter how outrageous, these Gay Rights political lobbyists needed a new cause to justify their very well paid jobs and keep all that money rolling in. And that’s when they decided that trannys were just perfect to exploit politically. Very vulnerable mentally ill people who live lives of anguish and suffering that too often ends in suicide.

    The perfect political cause. If you want to keep raking in the lobby money.

    For those who are wondering. True physical hermaphrodites are not trannys. They are about 1 in 3000 of the general population and in my experience nice often sweet people. TV’s (transvestites) can be bitchy or high maintenance at times but are at worst just narcissists. But usually OK to deal with. Both these groups are very different from trannys. Which is just a mental illness. And should be treated as such. With compassion and understanding. Just like those suffering from with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder etc.
