New California Bill Requires Retailers Create ‘Gender-Neutral’ Aisles For Children

Going into effect in 2023, the bill would make retail stores that fail to comply with its provisions punishable by a fine of $1,000.

A new bill introduced in the California Assembly would require retailers to create “gender-neutral” floor-spaces for children’s merchandise, with the goal of banning sex-specific labeling labeling such as “girls aisles” and “boys aisles.”

The bill proposed by Democratic Assemblyman Evan Low, requires all retail department stores with 500 employees or more to comply with the newfound gender standards of the Left.

According to the bill, AB-2826, if a retailer fails to correct a violation within 30 days, they become liable for a civil penalty of $1,000.

“A retail department store shall maintain one, undivided area of its sales floor where, if it sells childcare articles, all childcare articles, regardless of whether a particular item has traditionally been marketed for either girls or for boys, shall be displayed,” the bill reads.

‘Gender neutral’ plan for toys would get rid of boys’ and girls’ aisles in California stores

California department stores that sell children’s products such as toys and clothes would be prohibited from segregating them by gender, under a bill now being considered by lawmakers.

Assembly Bill 2826, by Assemblyman Evan Low, D-Campbell, would apply to all retail department stores with 500 or more employees.

The bill would do away with so-called “boys aisles” and “girls aisles,” by requiring that children’s products be offered in a single, gender neutral section, according to Low’s office.

If passed into law, the bill would apply to children’s clothing, toys and childcare items, “regardless of whether a particular item has traditionally been marketed for either girls or for boys,” according to the bill language.  More at Source:
