There are factions of our government that want us arguing among ourselves so we do not start watching what they are doing. This is not limited to the Democrats, but liberal Democrats seem to do this more often. That is the best way to control the public, keep them preoccupied and arguing among themselves. It is not a new policy either, this has been going on since I was a kid. But recently under Obama it really increased.

True.

It just seems weird that so many got concerned over bathroom molesting yet one out of four women possibly more are assaulted on college campuses by strait macho men.

The last three studies on college sexual crimes are actually deeply disturbing. Not theoretically in an alternate universe where a perverted Ms Doubtfire is waiting for your kids at every turn.

Somehow it's more Christian and less full of outrage if the molesting is by strait people I guess.


Most women who are raped know the person before hand.

How can you prove there are only 3 transgenders in North Carolina?

And even if there are? Why should they not get the same rights as yourself?

I think you 100% don't grasp what this was about or how it happened. Perhaps even more.

The leadership of NC reacted to the city of Charlotte ludicrous bathroom bill, which spawned HB2. Had Charlotte not tried to be the Transgender capitol of the world, none of this would have happened. There was no way the conservative leadership in a staunchly republican state in the center of the Bible belt could not react to this, which is exactly why it was enacted in the first place. It was a political ploy.


I think it is very obvious that YOU %100 cannot grasp what is happening or how it happened.

Really? So are most children I don't see how whether it's a daycare worker, priest or family member is any different then a woman who may have known the person that assaulted her. Neither person wanted what happened.

Absolutely no point in this staement.

It was a no-win situation.

Too many on either side had a political agenda.

The smart move would have been to do nothing. Let people be people.

We're talking about a place to void ones bladder.

In the grand scheme of things, it shouldn't ever matter what bathroom you use.


agreed, except alt-right morons in office decided to cost tax payers nearly 4 billion dollars on a bill that should have never happened.

so we all lost bc of the idiotic actions of a few morons.

Now lets collect ourselves and move forward and not make the same mistakes. Do not vote these idiots to be in office please.

That's because deeply religious people understand the often overlooked plight of "sexual emergencies". They understand that those who succumb to temptation and lust often become like raving animals in heat unable to resist the urges produced deep in their loins.


"You know he's a good kid and an excellent football player bless his heart, it would be a shame to go and ruin his life over one little "rapey mistake". That damn floozy shouldn't have been passed out drunk wearing a skirt in the dead of summer anyhow."

Um....I am not even sure I should respond to such a post. I feel a bit guilty, like kicking a guy who is already down or something. Shooting carp in a barrel. This is such easy pickings, it should be illegal.

Hyperbole

And transgenders are welcome to the same rights as me or anyone else. They are granted those rights by the Constitution of the United States. I even felt bad that they were used for political gain in all this. If you were to remove your head from the dark, stinky place it resides, you might have noticed that. But based on your posts, I doubt it.

no, I'm disgusted it happend, and more disgusted with the #tards in Charlotte who forced this outcome.
None of this should have ever happened in the first place.

So you mean to tell me the State Gov went through all this because they were afraid of 3 people raping children and molesting women in bathrooms?


Had NOTHING to do with the actual transgenders, and you knew that. The people this bill was intended to stop are the predators who say "Oh, but I identify as a woman" and throw a dress on as a method of accessing women's locker rooms and toilets.

In the 4.5 billion years prior to Charlotte's enacting of a bill that allowed transgender people to use whatever restroom they felt like, everyone, including transgender people were able to find a way to co-habitate and co-evacuate. So nothing needed to be done in the first place. But it was. and THAT was the catalyst to all this garbage. Had that not been done, HB2 would have never even been thought of.


But transgender people haven't always been able to find a way to co-habitate and co-evacuate in Charlotte.


Other supporters spoke of their personal experiences with discrimination because of their gender or sexuality.

“I stand before you as someone who can be thrown out of a Charlotte hotel for who I am,” said Crystal Richardson, a lesbian from Charlotte.

Laura Levin, a Concord pediatrician who recently transitioned from male to female, spoke against the “bathroom inquisition.”

“Do you know what it feels like to have a distended bladder” because of fear of using the preferred bathroom, Levin asked council members.

NO, i believe the law was to "protect" people and their children from what they perceive as unnatural weirdos with mental disorders in the bathroom. To protect bigots bc they fear the unknown.

People can throw a dress on and act like a woman with or without this law, that is understood.

HB2 has not yet been repealed. The governor still needs to sign it. The legislation is still controversial and under fire for not undoing the part about cities having the choice to enact their own anti-discrimination laws.

And network dude, my frenemy, The Williams Institute figures there are 44,750 transgender people in NC.

Here’s how many transgender people live in your state

Yea, but only 3 in Charlotte.


Kidding.

So, is this a win or no for transgenders? Remember, the Charlotte law and one's like it can't be enacted for almost 4 years.

I understand some folks are thicker than a brick wall.

This started because of Charlotte's law, which was intended to provoke a response from NC. The proof is that they offered to scrap HB2 if Charlotte dropped theirs and agreed not to enact a new on for 6 months, and Charlotte refused.

If you want to talk smack, first educate yourself.

eta: And #tards referred to #tards, not libs. quote it.
