All the Democratic Party has to do is not be crazy and they may actually sell some of their ideas. Unfortunately, it seems they refuse to not be crazy and so what they can’t sell, they mandate.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a bill Monday that will require utility corporations, municipalities, water-works corporations, and telephone service providers to utilize each customer’s desired name and pronouns in communications.
“Legislation S.5325/A.6193 gives utility customers the right to be addressed and acknowledged by their preferred name and pronouns by requiring utility corporations, municipalities, water-works corporations, and telephone service providers to allow customers to use their preferred name and pronouns,” according to a press release.
“Nearly 80,000 New Yorkers identify as transgender. This #TransAwarenessWeek, I’m proud to sign the Affirming Gender Identity in Utilities Act — common-sense legislation that gives New Yorkers the right to be addressed and acknowledged by their chosen names and correct pronouns,” Hochul tweeted.

“As we witness attacks on LGBTQ+ rights and protections around the country, New York is once again declaring that we are a state for all – one where we don’t needlessly criminalize victims and where our trans, gender non-binary, and gender non-conforming communities are affirmed,” the governor said in the release. “My administration is committed to equality and safety for everyone and New York is able to lead the way because of the work of our tireless advocates and our partners in the legislature. Together we will continue to build a state that is welcoming to all.”
While the Democrat may be proud of her effort, some on social media did not react to the news in the way she might have hoped, given the challenges they see the state facing:
We’re drowning in this economy.
What are you doing about that?

This is what you’re concentrating on with all the issues in this state. Unreal how out of touch you are

Hochul made history when she was sworn in as the first female governor in the state of New York earlier this year. She hit the ground running for the cause of leftism, and has since gone on to posit that unvaccinated people “aren’t listening to God.”
She said in a creepy church lecture in September, “All of you, yes, I know you’re vaccinated, you’re the smart ones, but you know there’s people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants.”
“You know who they are,” she continued.
The governor also called on those gathered at the Brooklyn center to be her “apostles,” to “go out and talk about it.”
Controversy over transgender movements in the U.S. continues to rage on, particularly in matters of school bathrooms and biological males competing in women’s sports.
Falling backward into the governorship of the fourth most populous state in the U.S. after the resignation of Andrew Cuomo might warrant a little moderation in policy initiatives, but Democrats can’t seem to resist the temptation to progress farther and farther to the leftist extremes of their party.
The signing of the new preferred pronoun bill and Hochul’s subsequent tweet have garnered more rejection than kudos on Twitter:
It’s my right to say Male or Female the only genders

Live your life, but at what point do people get to say they are not living in your fantasy. This is like letting people at Comic-Con jump in front of a moving train because they believe they are Superheroes.

That’s nice… In the meantime you’re displacing thousands of NYS workers, i/i’s families & damaging the local economies where they’re located by closing 6 correctional facilities… ps: violent crime is going UP, if you haven’t noticed. Smh…

I’d like to see an actual tally of this number to confirm because I feel like you just pulled that outta thin air? Man, I honestly didn’t think it could get worse than Cuomo.

What about the rights of New Yorkers not to be forced into compelled speech and swearing loyalty to other people’s religions?

Are you mandating this by law? What are the penalties for not using the “correct” pronouns?

“Common sense” ain’t got nothing to do with it lady.
