The California State Assembly has passed a bill that would ban Skittles and other delicious candy treats over chemicals contained that are linked to health issues. This is the same state that passed a bill last year making the state a sanctuary for minors seeking sex changes.
According to KTLA5, Assembly Bill 418 passed overwhelmingly in the chamber last week and now heads to the State Senate, where staffers told the outlet it is expected to pass and the candies will be banned.
The bill prohibits the manufacture, sale, or distribution of products containing titanium dioxide, potassium bromate, red dye No. 3, brominated vegetable oil, or propyl paraben in the state.
These chemicals have already been banned in the European Union, and have been linked to cancer, reproductive issues, and developmental issues in children.
But what also has links to reproductive issues is sex changes and medicalized gender transitions, which are allowed in the state, even on minors.
Surgical transitions involve the removal of healthy sexual organs, leaving the person on the receiving end infertile. Puberty blockers, which have been deemed a pausing point for children questioning their gender identity and are often called "fully reversible", have been revealed by some experts to cause fertility issues in children as they grow up and potentially continue down the path of transition. They are also not fully reversible, with bone loss and other bodily changes remaining permanent.
Director of Boston Children’s Hospital’s gender clinic Dr. Jeremi Carswell explained in a video that a "12 or 13-year-old testicle-bearing person who hasn't really had too much puberty" who is given a puberty blocker in an early stage of development and subsequently estrogen leaves the person infertile.
"That's a big deal. That's something you must have the conversation about," she said.
In California last September, a bill was signed into law that allowed kids looking to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" to seek refuge in the state.
SB 107 prevents out-of-state authorities from acting on subpoenas, warrants, and child custody issues if the minor was brought into the state for procedures like surgical gender reassignments or the prescribing of cross-sex hormones.
Republicans in the state have attempted to block schools from secretly transitioning children without parent’s knowledge, but Democrats blocked the bill from receiving its first hearing, with Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi saying in April, that the hearing wouldn’t happen “not only because the bill is proposing bad policy, but also because a hearing would potentially provide a forum for increasing hateful rhetoric targeting LGBTQ youth.”
