Yes, but are you not familiar with the concept of stacking charges?

A prosecutor charges someone with multiple charges with various degrees of severity in order to have them plea down to the lessor charge.

Again plodding government.


That's our idiotic government. We shouldn't pre-judge transgendered people (and that is what this is doing).

I just don't see most trans-gender people having to deal with this issue. They are living as their chosen gender and they dress and act that way. They will go into the restroom and do their business just like everyone else. No one will question them unless they are doing something creepy.

Sounds good and fair except and like common sense but it just so happens to now be against the law in NC and MS and on the table in other states like Tennessee at the moment.

I believe that this has specifically targeted transgendered people.

Isn't there already a law against molesting people?

Bingo! This attack on trans people is part of the official RNC platform as retribution for marriage equality and the Obama administration's interpretation of Title IV.

McCrory is already making changes and "trying to clarify".

This bill is directly targeting students. This is all about paranoid, ignorant parents.
This bill is directly targeting those little m/f trans kids Freija has posted.
That's what its really all about.

Absolutely correct!

In case anyone is unfamiliar with McCrory's attempt to "fix" this heinous law:

North Carolina Governor Issues Executive Order In Attempt To “Clarify” Anti-LGBT Law

And as to why this is simply nothing but lip service and bullshniz.

McCrory’s Executive Order 93: Hoist By His Own Petard

However, there is some good news about.

Democratic Louisiana Governor Rescinds Republican Predecessor’s Anti-Gay Order

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards issued an executive order Wednesday that protects LGBT state workers from discrimination — and bans LGBT discrimination in state contracts — and also rescinds an order by his Republican predecessor.

In 2015, former Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a “marriage and conscience” executive order to protect those who exercise their religious beliefs opposing same-sex couples marrying.

But Edwards — a Democrat — said Jindal’s decree was “inconsistent with the object and principles” of his efforts to protect LGBT people from discrimination.

In a press release explaining his decision, Edwards said Jindal’s order served “a narrow political agenda. It does nothing but divide our state and forced the business community, from Louisiana’s smallest businesses to large corporations, like IBM, to strongly oppose it.”


This is a baby step in the right direction but falls short.

HRC & Forum for Equality Respond to Louisiana Governor John Bel Edward’s Executive Order

“While the governors of North Carolina and Mississippi have signed into law discriminatory measures targeting LGBT people in the workplace, Governor Edwards is standing up and sending a different message -- one that tells his fellow Southern governors that Louisiana will not turn its back on its motto of union and fairness. However, this cannot be the last action by Louisiana to ensure equality for all. This executive order still allows for religiously-based state contractors to discriminate against LGBT employees while accepting taxpayer funds. We call on the state’s elected officials to pass a law protecting all LGBT Louisianans from discrimination in the all workplaces and beyond.”

Yeah and housing, education, access to credit and all the rest of things people can be denied.

What is wrong with society! Cmon people if you have a penis you go to the men's bathroom, if you have a vagina you go to the women's bathroom! If you want to be a woman and your a man, you do it legally by going to the state and getting your birth certificate and ID changed to the sex you want to be. Same as for a woman wanting to be a man. It's that simple! Oh it's not real simple, you have to actually have to take the time to do something, other than shop or post your transgendered porn online!

I am not against porn, or transgendered people, but I am against a man who just decided he is gonna be a woman, and starts going into a public restroom, and accidentally or purposely shows his genitals to my little girl! Do you want to see what happens? I don't think you want to. This law just does not just protect people who are for the law but those who are against it too. There are a lot of creeps out there, and yes there are good people too, but do we have to create a situation where things can be good for those creeps? What about my little girls life? Or my little boys life? Do these matter to you? It is very easy to create a transgendered bathroom, a men's, and a women's bathroom.... Why can't we do that, why do I have to be forced to use a restroom with a women wanting to be a man? as it is most men don't like using the urinal next to another man! Cmon people get real!

You do know this is primarily targeted at students, right?

You are born transgender. Your brain tells you you don't match your physical packaging.

Children are transgender. You want a 5 year old m/f girl to use the boys bathroom?

If your little snowflake is the restroom alone I think you have more problems than men trying to attack her.......

Try parenting for once.......

Very smart for a man going into a girls bathroom when she is old enough to go on her own. Guess your not a parent and probably couldn't parent if you tried.

Uh yeah. And what age would that be?

My 8 year old grandson goes into the woman's restroom with me.

At what age is it safe for him to go alone into a restroom with grown men?

Exactly. If someone is so worried that their special little snowflake will be violated in a restroom, freaking escort them........

Exactly!

But, this is mostly meant to target kids in school. Kindergarten on up.

There's been a lot of media about transgender kids in school using the restroom they identify with.

Resulting in paranoid/ignorant parents making a big deal out of it.

Banning everyone because of where they live.

Kind of ironic.
