AB 2501, Bonilla. Voluntary manslaughter.How often does this happen? You meet what you think is a woman in a bar, take her home, begin sexual relations, and then discover she is really a man? And then you are so traumatized that you can never have a satisfactory sexual experience again? Or you fly into a rage and kill him/her?
Existing law defines voluntary manslaughter as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice upon a sudden quarrel or heat of passion. The crime of voluntary manslaughter is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for 3, 6, or 11 years.
This bill would state that for purposes of determining sudden quarrel or heat of passion, the provocation was not objectively reasonable if it resulted from the discovery of, knowledge about, or potential disclosure of the victim’s actual or perceived gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation, including under circumstances in which the victim made an unwanted nonforcible romantic or sexual advance towards the defendant, or if the defendant and victim dated or had a romantic or sexual relationship. By changing the definition of a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
I am guessing that this law might affect one case every ten years. It was passed just to show some symbolic respect for the LGBTQIA lobby.
Okay, fine, maybe trannies should have the sexual freedom to trick someone on a one-night stand. I don't care. I am wondering this obscure and outcast special interest group gets a law like this passed, and a million noncustodial dads cannot get a law giving them the right to see their kids.
