Skip to comments.Bill would ask state contractors: Are you gay or lesbian?

For the first time, California would ask its contractors if they are gay under legislation passed Monday by the Assembly.
The measure, Assembly Bill 1960, would enable the owners of businesses that contract with the state to identify themselves as gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual. It would not require them to do so.
The Assembly vote was 47-24, with only one Republican supporting it.
The Department of General Services currently is required to collect data on contractors by race, ethnicity and gender. AB 1960 would add LGBT-owned businesses to that list.
The bill by Sacramento Democratic Assemblyman Roger Dickinson seeks data involving state contracts for construction, professional services, and for the purchase of materials, supplies or equipment.
Dickinson said the measure would allow state officials and gay or lesbian groups to better pinpoint the extent to which LGBT-owned businesses are helping to drive the state economy.

Do they verify? I mean someone could lie about it in order to have a better shot at a state contract.
The dudes name is Dick In Son.....
I bet it’s highly illegal for a private employer to ask applicants that same question.
"You mean like flaming?"
Why don’t they skip all the fine-structure identity specifications like race and sex and go for what they really want, namely “straight white males need not apply?”
Dickenson sez it voluntary. And no one is to be effected one way or the other.
So just what is the point??
Will the State put out a list of gaylesbiantransgender companies so pervs can put in preferred applications?
What about a list of companies not allowed to do business around minors?
Is this the kind of crap californicators care about? Hello.... your state is bankrupt... in so many ways.
“Only if it helps me get the job.”
Looks like he’s expecting a ‘large package’.
Simple to see if you say no, you probably don’t vote Democrat and you won’t get a contract.
It would not require them to do so.Not yet, anyway.
Well, pffft.....I’m lesbian.
My wife is happy about that, however.
“Why dont they skip all the fine-structure identity specifications like race and sex and go for what they really want, namely straight white males need not apply?”
Boy, isn’t that cutting right to the chase! Absolutely right.
Sure...everyone will be “gay.” That way the system will BREAK!!!!
The libtards in kalifornicator are absolutely, completely, totally obsessed with perverted sex, seemingly to the exclusion of all else.
These people are really, really sick.
If I say, “All of the above”, do I get the contract?
Just write on the application-for-contract form, “I went to the Barney Frank school of contracting”. You are sure to get the contract, and a disease thrown in for free.
Do they offer affirmative action for transgendered lesbians? I’m into chicks but I’m trapped in a man’s body.
Now I must have an operation to be competitive with State contracts?
Why do we need to know the extent to which gay lesbian owned businesses are driving the state economy? Why does that matter? Or do they want to have data to prove that homosexual businesses are being discriminated against, so that they can then implement an affirmative action plan?
Give the "Alinsky treatment" right back to the Libs!
Why would God “bless America”?
Sick stuff; it appears the most liberal nonsense is coming out of the dying states (as the European Christians that built this country flee them). No accident that the most liberal states are the most “diverse”; it is easy to push this sh!t through when 1/2 of your residents don’t even speak English (and can’t vote against it anyway).
In 10 years you’re going to have to prove you’re gay to work in California.
Just saying so won’t cut it.
On your knees, comrade!
All this pretense when the actual goal is to filter out “straight” and “white.”
