Transgender advocates in the California Legislature have introduced legislation that would require elderly residents in skilled nursing facilities to share rooms and bathrooms with biologically opposite individuals.
SB 219, sponsored by Senator Wiener, would allow a transgender individual to occupy a room and use restroom facilities based on gender identity as opposed to biological reality.
It is difficult if not impossible for elderly residents in care facilities to maintain bodily privacy in shared rooms. SB 219 proposes that a transgender individual could demand to be placed in a room with a biologically opposite person, or could alternatively request to be placed in a room with somebody of the same biological sex.
“The proposed legislation specifically prohibits a non-transgender resident from objecting to a transgender person becoming their roommate, but allows the transgender person to select whether to room with a male or a female,” said privacy advocate Karen England.

The mandates on long-term care facilities, their employees and even non-employees are set forth in Senate Bill (SB) 219, proposed by Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), that would criminalize pronoun usage in nursing homes.
In the letter, Kevin Snider of the PJI-CPP details a number of concerns with the bill, including religious freedom, pronouns, names and compelled speech. Among other things, the bill contains no exceptions for religiously-operated institutions, which means nuns caring for the elderly and disabled in covered facilities would be expected to embrace the State’s gender ideology. The bill also fails to account for the sad reality that many residents of long-term care facilities are not in their right minds and may have delusions that should not be imposed on caregivers.
Brad Dacus, the president of the PJI-CPP, noted, “Radical gender theory has real, negative consequences for society. All of us should be alarmed by the attempt to now criminalize the use of legal names and grammatically correct pronouns in nursing homes. We believe this bill is not only unconstitutional, but unconscionable.”

More evidence that liberalism is a mental disorder and that California is rotting. Nobody who takes this insanity seriously gets any respect from me. There is a fixed, objective human reality that includes being exactly one of two possible opposite sexes: male or female. In almost every case, confusion can be cleared up by looking at what’s behind the zipper. Delusions about having an identity opposite or contrary to your sex should not be honored, entertained, nor otherwise seriously considered or accommodated.
And all of this brought to you by the liberal Democrats you “Progressives” continue to vote into office. This is the demonically inspired world these legislators want us all to live in. They are disgusting, but you who voted them into power should be ashamed of yourselves.
What, pray tell, will you tell your sweet old granny when she asks why she must share a room with a man?
I am going to contact Sen. Scott Weiner, regarding his ridiculous and horrifically abusive bill! Transgender patents need their own private, special arrangements, in nursing homes, due to the extreme nature of their abnormalities! Other patients, who are in delicate medical conditions, must not be subjected to trauma and fright, by sick, leftist politicians! Politics must never be mixed with medical care! Elderly patients in skilled nursing homes need comfort, care, and protection from the dangers of society, and the dangers of idiotic, abusive leftist politicians! Their health is extremely delicate!
Well, I just sent my email, to Sen. Weiner! Hope it helps! The medical and psychology disciplines need HONESTY in their diagnoses of disorders and illnesses– and to clearly state how to manage treatment plans (if there are not yet cures) for the “LGBT” disorders and illnesses. SHAME ON THESE DISHONEST SCIENCES– for allowing their professions to be hijacked by their sick patients, making their crazy demands!
We are all human beings, first– and many have various illnesses and disorders– which should never be a source of cruelty, whether you have cancer, Down’s Syndrome, TB, epilepsy, LGBT, etc.!!
LM curious: How much time have you spent in a nursing home? Do people really CARE about whether the person in the next bed is gay or straight? Male or female? Republican or Democrat?
I honestly have spend thousands of hours in those settings, and NOBODY every asked any of those questions!
The biggest question in those rooms is whether the TV is to loud or not !!!
YFC, your post is ridiculous! Everyone has loved ones who are family and friends, in nursing homes! Many also volunteer, or work, or serve the Church, by routine visits to hospitals and nursing homes! Including myself, and millions of others! Safety and well-being for skilled nursing home patients, is a BIG RESPONSIBILITY, kiddo!! Best not to waste your time, finding petty, childish ways, to attack other Catholics– fellow Catholics! — Instead, just write your own posts, about your own ideas! Try to be kind and nice to others!
The illness and gender confusion of transgenders is too stressful, too traumatic, for normal patients, suffering from VERY SERIOUS ILNESSES, many of whom are at life’s end!! Normal elderly, extremely sick and dying patients, need and deserve respect, safety, and security– not to have to cope with nasty, insensitive, immature, rebellious “teen-age-style” politically-based insensitivity to them, and their delicate needs!! Placing patients in shared room and bathroom accomodations, requires MATURITY of the nursing staff and administration!!
Again— it is a necessity, to have respect, dignity, and great care and sensitivity, for the delicate needs of our elderly parents, grandparents, and other family members, as well as those of the Church, who are served, in nursing facilities of all types!! Many California liberal politicians are TOO YOUNG, immature, insensitive, and SELFISH– to understand this!!
Let’s say Grandpa had to place Grandma in a skilled nursing facility– and she has one or two transgender roommates. Underneath the hospital gowns– with delicate, everyday medical needs, procedures, bedpans, bedbaths, use of the bathroom, showers, dressing, undressing, etc.— are Grandma’s roommates men, or women, or…??? Is that what Grandpa is paying for, for his beloved, extremely ill (or dying!) wife– your dignified, beloved Grandma?? And is that how a Catholic hospital is State-mandated, to treat her, in America??
Your Mom, your wife, or your Grandma, perhaps old, weak, and suffering from a major illness, is very delicate– no clothes on!– under her hospital gown, in the nursing facility! She needs sensitivity, care, privacy, and protection! She does not need to cope with weird “male” roommates, who are mentally-disturbed, and claim that they are “females!” The world needs COMMON SENSE!! It does not matter what you “THINK” you are– underneath your clothes, or hospital gown, is revealed a VERY DEFINITE GENDER!!
Sorry, YFC, but have you ever considered that those people in the elder care homes do not feel comfortable talking to YOU about such matters? Perhaps you should amend your visits and speak to these folks about issues that matter – like salvation, being united with God – not just the distracting numb of how loud the television is.
Your dismissive attitude is truly disturbing.
Nobody in a nursingome cares, honestly. When the gown drops in the bed next to yours, you turn your head, you don’t stare and check out what parts they have. And trust me, if there is a “safety” issue, the perp can just walk from one room to another. Again, every time the trans issue comes up, you all want to pretend that it is the trans people (in this case, very old trans people) who are perpetrating crimes. Why do you jump to that conclusion? Criminal data certainly doesn’t bare that out. Everyone knows that most sexual crimes committed in nursing homes isn’t from fellow residents, it is from STAFF.
If it’s no biggie about who is sleeping in the next bed then there is ZERO reason to put men in women’s rooms. By your own admission, when the gowns drop, you turn your head.
Everyone knows, however, that you’re up on pushing the trans agenda or anything else that stirs the pot. So go ahead, YFC, do your best. But again, you just proved why “trans” individuals are just fine staying in the wing associated with their biological gender.
Transgender people are not gay.
How stupid do you think we are? If they have sex with their own REAL gender they ARE homosexual.
I’m reading “Sex Scandal” by Ashley McGuire. The subtitle tells it all: “The Drive to Abolish Male and Female’. Read it and get the big picture.

Christian rights and gay ‘rights’ cannot coexist. We cannot allow a 2-3% minority to dictate their demonic paradigm. This insanity must be defeated at all costs and without compromise.
Ummm, what are “Christian rights”?
If you have to ask YFC you will never know…. then again you are not one anyway, you like to think you are
I’m searching the Constitution now. Nope, no Christian rights.
Ron you are right. But you need to understand that this is spiritual warfare that we are involved in straight from the pits of hell. The devil himself is orchestrating this diabolical radical agenda that is sheer madness and makes no sense at all. The devil knows that his time is quickly running out so don’t despair. The only way to fight in this spiritual war is to pray the Rosary each and every day. I would even encourage everyone to say all four rosaries every day. Remember at Fatima Mother Mary told the three children she appeared to that in the end her Immaculate Heart will triumph. Pray America Pray!
So now the state requires elderly people to allow members of the opposite sex to see them in a state of undress. No one is legally allowed to object. That is very creepy. In a sane state, any political party that mandated sexual abuse would be swept out of power. The whole country should know about the kinds of abuse that the Democratic party has in store for them.
i was in a ladies clothing store trying on dresses when a man came in, took some clothes off the rack, asked to try them on and the sales lady took him to the dressing room. I only find out because I had a friend in the store waiting for me who witnessed it.
