Although Tennessee and Arkansas have passed similar laws that prohibit local municipalities from passing local non-discrimination laws for gender and sex identity, “in an ordinary year it would have ended there,” she says. But in North Carolina, lawmakers apparently wanted to help boost McCrory, who’s up for re-election, and piggyback on a Virginia case in which a transgender boy sought municipal protection for his bathroom choice; the case currently before a federal appeals court. Oakley also pointed to South Dakota, a conservative state where the governor vetoed a similar conservative-backed bill that would have restricted transgender men and women from using the bathrooms of their choice. In that case, Gov. Dennis Daugaard, a Republican, said local municipalities, informed by their experts on the ground, should make that decision.



Squeaky wheel gets the grease.


So what are they going to implement....

Bathroom cops to check out your junk to make sure you are in the proper bathroom?

And if caught and prosecuted...what would be the sentence?
30 days in the hole?

you know, before all this, I'd have laughed right along with you. At this point, I'm kind of afraid to, as this may in fact be a reality in the future. As I see it, we aren't really heading in the right direction.

If the rule of law was so important, then I'd ask why so many are for ignoring the rule of law on illegal immigration.



Those same people would call you a racist for pointing that out, of course.

You very well could be correct. At least in the Southern states !!!

And perhaps Kansas....

The problem is that there is no legal definition of what exactly constitutes a transgender, and the trans community itself fights it because they don't really have any one actual definition.

So is a transgender simply any man who wakes up one morning and says, "Today, I feel like a women" or should there be another criteria? And if it is so loose that any man wearing a dress or other female garb actually can simply walk into the ladies room (or locker room) unchallenged, then you have a lot of room for potential abuse by men who really aren't transgender but are actually looking to exploit the rules for their own perverted reasons and women have no legal recourse. After all, how am I to know if that man in a dress is a legit transgender or simply a sexual predator?

I guess they'll check identification cards. Why you couldn't figure that out I'm just guessing is that you're biased because you have something at stake in the matter.

Good luck getting your civil rights, hope you get them but calling an entire state bigoted (intolerant of others' beliefs) and racist (believing in the superiority of one race over another) isn't going to help. Noone else believes a few people in the government represents all of the people

I don't think they hate you because they see you as inferior because humans know dogs are inferior and they are man's best friend. Even if they told me that's why I wouldn't believe it.

People should have the right to be as bigoted and homophobic as they want...Just don't be a crybaby when someone kicks the livin ++++ out of you!!!

You reap what you sow....

The damage is done regardless of the truth. Passing discriminatory laws will label NC as a bigoted, homophobic state and the repercussions from tourism and business will be profound.

You can't be pro business and anti gay at the same time.

You reap what you sow!


I don't see that it makes much difference. The Deep South was already labeled by the media and pop culture as those things anyhow. Oh no! You're labeling them even more ...

China has no lgbt anti discrimination laws, I'm speculating that Russia doesn't, the oil rich middle East for sure doesn't and America doesn't outside of a few cities that have local laws that are pro gay. Unfortunately businesses make more money by giving the workers less rights.

Do you understand that there nothing to stop that from happening, even without these bathroom laws? DO you understand that abuse/assault is already illegal, in bathrooms or anywhere else?

Do understand that trans people are the ones at risk for being "outed" stalked and attacked BECAUSE of these laws?

Have you seen a woman body builder?



Would you stop this woman and try to keep her out of the public restroom or locker room? The only way to know for sure is to check her junk - and that's not weird at all to ask to see what's inside her underwear.

Then you truly believe that this guy should use a female bathroom...




And I absolutely, not surprisingly, disagree with you.

This is where people fail, using a creepy picture to push your side of the story, also to try to hide the fact that you're so scared of going to a public bathroom because someone of the other sex might be taking a dump in the other stall.
