California Could Legalize 'Nonbinary' As a Third Gender

Will California be the first state to have three genders? The state is considering “The Gender Recognition Act” to add a third legal gender in California and allow people to change their gender on birth certificates and state IDs before transitioning.

Where is the bill now?

The state bill is awaiting action by Gov. Jerry Brown.

What are the main parts of the bill?

  • People who haven’t gone through medical treatment to “transition” to the opposite sex can still request a new birth certificate with their chosen gender.
  • Three gender options will be available on state IDs: female, male and nonbinary.

Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere talked about the story on Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

Stu found irony in the fact that the same group of people that impose burdensome regulations are now complaining that being “nonbinary” requires too much paperwork.

“I love how the same people who build a giant bureaucracy in which every minor thing involves hours of paperwork then complain to us that they have to fill out too much paperwork,” he said.

Glenn joked that the story was a nice break from North Korean missiles. Huge problems are looming, and we’re struggling with the nuances of defining gender?

“We have one sweet life,” he said.

GLENN: California is really on. California late last year, someone -- and I want to make sure that I say someone, someone named Star began thinking that it was time for a legal name change. I'm thinking, you know, sure. Teresa might be good.

STU: Sally.

GLENN: Yeah. Star has been going by that name for two years since coming out at the age of 15 to friends and family as a -- what? What do you think?

STU: As a --

GLENN: As a? Come on, say it with me. Non-binary.

STU: Non-binary. Okay. Good. I was worried. I was going to say non-binary, but then I was worried you were going to go somewhere else.

GLENN: At 15 years old, Star decided she was neither a woman nor a man and would not choose the pronouns him or her. She was a non-binary. And so she wanted a plural non-gendered pronoun for her. And she wanted the state to do that. And so by the time she was 17, and the article said stretching to her adulthood, she had -- she had confronted all of the tedious paperwork in California.

Who knew there was even paperwork to be filled out if you wanted to register as a non-binary. But she had her driver's license with the wrong name on it. Then she began applying to colleges, also under the wrong name. And it was a problem. And mostly because Star really liked to follow the rules. And yet, every time she had to fill out an official form -- she -- Star, felt fraudulent, writing down a name she barely recognized on the rare occasion that she ever heard her name said out loud. She's -- she's Star.

STU: I love how the same people who build a giant bureaucracy in which every minor thing involves hours of paperwork, then complain to us that they have to fill out too much paperwork. I love that.

GLENN: Yeah. Non-binary is a relatively unknown term. Sure, for bigots. And non-binary Americans struggle to be taken seriously.

STU: I don't think that's my problem. I don't think that is my problem. Their identifies are questioned. They are told they're either male or female. And there's nothing in the middle.

STU: That was the way it was. I think I'm going to continue to go there. It almost feels like they're changing this word into something else. Like gender -- like you know how the word gay used to mean happy. And then it became an alternative lifestyle, as they used to say.

GLENN: Right. I'm not sure if you can use that word anymore.

STU: I don't think you can say that anymore.

But it changed meanings, right? It just became another thing. And it seems like that's what gender is going on -- I heard Ellen -- Ellen DeGeneres one time explain the whole transgendered thing as what you feel like in your head.

GLENN: That's something different.

STU: And I'm not saying that there isn't a word to describe what you feel like in your head. Like, that might be an important thing to come up with a word for. But gender already had a meaning. So if you want to figure out what someone feels like in their head, we can all come up together and come up with some way to describe your head feelings.

GLENN: And sometimes it matches. And sometimes it doesn't. For instance, the feeling I have in my head is fat. And currently that does kind of exist.

STU: Fact-check: Mostly true.

GLENN: Mostly true. But that doesn't make me less of a man or a woman. Now, I could feel like a fat woman, but that isn't necessarily true. That's how I feel.

We are in this weird era where facts like, oh, I don't know. The missile coming across the sky is kind of something that, I don't know -- non-binary, now, that's something that we really need to discuss.

When you are in a place -- again, I said this yesterday, I'm going to bring you the news that we're not as bad off as everyone -- we're not as oppressed, we're not as poor, we're not as broken -- we're just not. Because if wild missiles are crossing our horizon -- while all of these huge problems are happening, if the big thing we struggle with is, I'm neither male nor female, I'm binary, we have one sweet life.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
