Transgender Totalitarianism Marches On

Or transtalitarianism, if you will....
California says it can compel you to say what someone else tells you to say if you work in a nursing home.
   Notice that the way the law is written, not using pronouns at all, or not speaking to someone at all, can be prosecuted by a $1,000 fine or a year in jail. It doesn't even merely (lol merely...) outlaw calling someone something they don't want to be outlaws not calling someone something they want you to call them. That's compelled speech. And it's the kind of thing that makes conservatives and libertarians suggest that progressivism's motto should be YOU WILL BAKE ME A CAKE. Though at least the cake-baking question is a tough one. This pronoun nonsense is not a close call at all. It's completely cracked. By trying to force people to call a man 'she', the state is trying to make them say false things, and tacitly accept a completely wacko metaphysics.
   But, since all the liberals seem to have died off or turned into progressive pod people, and no one takes libertarians or conservatives seriously, and Americans generally seem to have been retrained into doing what they're told to do, saying what they're told to say, and believing what they're told to we are. We sure are a compliant lot now, aren't we? We remind me basically not at all of what we seemed to be like in my youth...
   Also, notice how quickly we went from here's a wacky idea you've probably never heard of before to you must believe this or you are literally Hitler to we are going to put you in jail if you don't profess belief in this. And this is one of the creepiest, crazies, scariest things about the contemporary left: it's willing to go full totalitarian on the basis of an obviously ludicrous fad. Oh and, not to mention: it very clear aims to micromanage your actions and control your thoughts. And it's not just fringe wackos anymore--it takes a lot of mainstream Democrats, even in California, to turn some crazy-ass crackpottery like this into law.
