They cut her loose because she supports traditional marriage. “ASUC political party Student Action announced in a Facebook post Wednesday night that it had disaffiliated with Senator Isabella Chow because of comments she made about the LGBTQ+ community during that night’s senate meeting,” Sakura Cannestra reported in The Daily Californian.
“At the meeting, the senators discussed a resolution that opposed the Trump administration’s proposed Title IX changes.”

“Chow said she could not support the resolution — which stood in solidarity with transgender, intersex, nonbinary and gender nonconforming students — because she believes that God created man and woman, and that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.” According to Cannestra, Chow’s exact words were, “I cannot vote for these bills without compromising my values and my responsibility to the community who elected me to represent them. As a Christian, I do believe that there are certain … lifestyles that conflict with what is good, right and true.”

Cannestra’s story is preceded by the words, “Content warning: Anti-LGBTQ+ language.”
