Makes me proud of our elected officials. Last week, we officially became a Sanctuary State, now this:

(Disclaimer: I am not assigning gender to the State in the title of this post - the state may be a Man or Woman or Gender Neutral should this be reviewed by the California AG)...

California health care workers who “willfully and repeatedly” decline to use a senior transgender patient's “preferred name or pronouns” could face punishments ranging from a fine to jail time under a newly signed law. | Fox News

I thought the subject line was going to be about Dianne Feinstein.

At 84, Sen. Dianne Feinstein is at an age when many Americans are deep into their retirement years. But the oldest member of the Senate announced Monday that she will seek another term with a ready retort for those who might suggest her best years are behind her.

I thought this was going to be about changing the law so that KNOWINGLY infecting someone with HIV will no longer be a felony.

Good point - I should've added that to the post. You can go to jail for referring to a gay man who identifies as a woman as 'Mister' but 'Mister' can no longer be in jail if he KNOWINGLY infects others with HIV.

Good times!

I think knowingly infecting someone with a deadly disease should be a felony.

That is fucked up beyond comprehension. The disease itself isn't enough punishment for someone like that.

I like this quote...

"The most effective way to reduce HIV infections is to destigmatize HIV,"

No, the most effective way is to not share bodily fluids with an infected person.

That's just common sense. Adding a little jail time to those that don't disclose should help.

That's about the dumbest quote I've ever heard. That's like saying the best way to reduce cancer rates is to make people like cancer more.

The irony is the very people that decriminalizing is supposed to help are the ones most likely to be knowingly infected. It would be interesting to know how many prosecutions under said law have occurred. I would also think if you are mad/vindictive enough to knowing infect someone you probably are not clearly thinking about the legal ramifications.

Your state government is freaking crazy. Possibly crazy enough to make the Trump administration seem preferable.

Not hard really...Most effective way to not get HIV is the same as the most effective way to not get pregnant. It's the same

No. I saw that and it's not really relevant to my question The most effective way to not get bit by a shark is to stay out of the water. The most effective way to not stub your toe is to not walk. The most effective way to not get fat is to not eat. Its all the same. I underscore Duffy's comment. I just wonder if he carries the same attitude all the way into education.

So you're just being difficult for the sake of it. Got it.

I think that if we are to use our education system to discuss pregnancy and STDs then it should taught that the most effective way to avoid these things is to not have sex. We should also (if we are to use our education system to discuss these things) teach other methods of reducing the chances, such as using condoms. We also need to be honest and open about which specific sex acts or more risky. For example, unprotected anal sex is much more risky than oral sex.

These are all things that I discuss with my son. It’s an open and ongoing dialogue.

To teach abstinence only, or not at all, is doing a disservice.

This is one of those times I completely agree with you. Open and ongoing dialogue. If you're afraid to talk about these things with your kids, don't have kids.
