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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
