They're not allowed to?

Personally, they're out of bounds. However, they do have a right to state an opinion. There's no law against that.

Nobody said there was.

Folks in favor of this sort of thing obviously have little or nothing important going on in their lives if this is a big issue for them...

I'm probably just being dense but what is "this sort of thing"?

Are you at all familiar with the pushback from North Carolina's HB2, the one the Texas bill is modeled after or of the corporations and performers that have pulled out of the state costing NC tens of millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs? Is "this sort of thing" organizations getting involved in political activism or is "this sort of thing" fundamentalist groups lobbying legislators to come up with these unnecessary laws because they've got nothing more important going on in their lives and republicans are still pissed about marriage equality? OR, is "this sort of thing" the messy problem of what to do with those damned transgender people that need to relieve themselves and have been doing so forever without issues?

I just don't know where you're coming from?

It's one thing to have anti-discrimination policies as 19 states already do. It is another to have no policy at all like 30 have. It is something else altogether to have blatantly anti-transgender policies like in North Carolina and proposed in Texas.

Unisex bathrooms, separate stalls, where does the argument go then? It has no where to go.

And it needs nowhere to go where?

As for it being cost prohibitive, if an NFL franchise/stadium owner can not afford this, then perhaps they ought to think about selling the franchise...

Again with the football stadiums and bathrooms? I'm about to give up.

Well, they don't regulate if sex offenders use the bathroom with your children of the same sex why discriminate against non-sex offenders?

Kind of hypocritical.
