Skip to comments.California Assembly passes bill to ask vendors about their sexuality
Posted on 05/03/2012 6:44:29 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
California Assembly Bill 1960 continues the radical gay political machine's carefully planned assault on personal privacy. Here is the bill's summary as written by the Legislative Counsel's Digest.
Existing law requires the Department of General Services to make available a report on contracting activity containing specified information, including the level of participation of business enterprises, by race, ethnicity, and gender of owner, in specified contracts.
This bill would require the Department of General Services to include in the report on contracting activity information regarding the level of participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender owned businesses in specified contracts, as provided.
What specified contracts? Almost all contracts let out for bid by California including construction, purchases of materials, supplies, or equipment and professional services.
The bill was passed by the Assembly on an almost party line vote and sent to the State Senate.
And not so surprisingly, the bill says it's actually voluntary for contractors to report this information. The "volunteerism" aspect is a clever device to provide cover for the liberal lap dogs in the MSM who have to report this unsavory tidbit of unholy tyranny.
From the Sacramento Bee:
The measure, Assembly Bill 1960, would enable the owners of businesses that contract with the state to identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. It would not require them to do so.
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.

What if you are a transgendered bisexual lesbian?
Only the left can get away with this. What is the government business on your sexuality unless, they plan to divide us more by giving preferred contracts to yet another minority over a qualified vendor.
The soon-to-be Most successful contractor in California!
Since companies that bill themselves as fruit baskets will be awarded contracts, I look for the percentage of apparent gays in California to skyrocket to 69% or so, “on paper”.
The fly in the ointment might be that Kalifornia tends not to actually PAY its vendors...
So what do they do if you claim you’re gay? How do they check this? Let’s say I’m married and have 3 kids, but I claim I’m gay. What do they do? Question my wife? Demand I turn over the names of my same-sex sexual partners? How is this going to work?
These guys are nuts! The downward spiral continues.
I’m not a heterosexual guy. I’m simply a lesbian woman trapped in a man’s body.
There, problem fixed.
Yeah but we Californians will have a fabulous infrastructure.
>> Yeah but we Californians will have a fabulous infrastructure.
“Queer eye for the straight (in places) state”, eh?
NOW we are beginning to get down to what this is all about.
SPECIAL PREF FOR GAYS...
How soon until gays start demanding free college, reperations, etc,etc.
Can’t ask that question about potential military recruits. You mean there’s a double-standard? Where’s all that fairness now?
Pretty soon, we’ll be filling in the bubbles on state testing for first graders on whether they are gay or not......if we don’t already!
So, what is the highest priority of those running the legislature?
With each passing day, all I can say about my former home state of California is:
Wow... What. A. F***ing. Mess.
I escaped in 1976.... I only return to visit my family members still trapped behind the Lavender Tofu Curtain.
***The soon-to-be Most successful contractor in California! ***
I have never been able to sit through that movie!
They could dispense with all this fine-structure discrimination if they just had the guts to do what they really want to do: “Straight white males need not apply.”
I don't know how a "business' can "identify itself" as any of those.
Anybody notice something missing from that list?
Can a business "identify" as heterosexual?
Gives a whole new meaning to "Drop and give me twenty!"
Why would “normal” people want to live in California? I don’t even want to visit there!
