1. You had the wrong bill. SB 179 is about the procedures for legally changing your gender identity and doesn't mention any penalties.
2. Thanks for the link pointing out that your claim (about SB 219) is BS.
But the headlines, and some of the articles that follow, don’t fully explain the high bar necessary for criminal prosecution. Calling someone by the wrong pronoun would have to be repeated and willful, as some articles detail. But this action would also have to put a [nursing home] resident at risk of death or serious physical harm -- though at least one religious liberty group disputes that this would be necessary to bring criminal charges.
The bar's so high I couldn't imagine what that situation would be.
Don't look at me, I just work here.
