California moves to repeal loitering law that trans activists say leads to bias
The California state legislature is considering a bill to end the outdated anti-loitering law that’s been used as justification for discrimination against transgender people. If passed, this will be one of many steps taken in moving forward with equality and acceptance among all Americans
The current loitering policy was first created back during World War II when there were fears about Nazi infiltration tactics like “heels clicking on sidewalks at night.” Nowadays we know these worries are unjustified but unfortunately many parts our society haven’t caught up yet because they’re still hanging onto their old ways!
California is looking to eliminate a law that has been used against trans people in the past. This new measure would help fight discrimination and bias based on gender identity or sexual orientation, according to those pushing for its repeal.
The proposal was brought forward by state assembly member Gurría Oxnard during last week’s session but died without being voted upon however it’s not too late because there still may be time before 2019 ends so supporters hope they can make more of an impact then this year ended
