The non-issue of transgender bathrooms is only an issue because the federal government and their friends at the Human Rights Campaign made it one. All sides are overreacting it seems. I just want the Federal government out of bathroom policy.
The state of North Carolina and the Federal government are suing each other for the ‘right’ of anyone to use any bathroom depending on the gender they identify with at the time. Single stall bathrooms are not a problem of course and the North Carolina HB2 bill provides for that.
This entire issue is meant to take peoples’ attention away from the lousy economy, the mess in the Middle East, ISIS, Iran shooting off ICBMs, Libya which Obama and Hillary destroyed, Obamacare et al and it allows the Feds to write law controlling the people.
Loretta Lynch tied it to segregation in a speech yesterday but if you listen to it and substitute “non-transgender”, it becomes clear, the non-transgenders are being discriminated against and not being ‘included’. Non-Transgenders have their right to privacy and to not have a man in a bathroom with a woman and vice versa.
“More to the point, they created state-sponsored discrimination against transgender individuals,” Lynch said, “who simply seek to engage in the most private of functions in a place of safety and security – a right taken for granted by most of us.”
“This is about the dignity and respect we accord our fellow citizens and the laws that we, as a people and as a country, have enacted to protect them – indeed, to protect all of us. And it’s about the founding ideals that have led this country – haltingly but inexorably – in the direction of fairness, inclusion and equality for all Americans.”
Who is really being left out in these decisions when a man can go into a locker room with a little girl? Why is the Executive Branch of the government legislating anything? Do gay and lesbian parents want their little girls in the bathroom with a man? I don’t know the answers. You tell me.
The objection was over a law passed by the city of Charlotte in February mandating private businesses allow transgender people to choose public bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity. The state of North Carolina stepped in and said they couldn’t pass a law telling private businesses what to do with their bathrooms.
One Federal judge will decide, Judge Napolitano said. The state of North Carolina is saying they are not going to allow the Federal government to determine bathrooms in private businesses when they have no legal right to do so. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not cover gender identity and Congress has said four times that it does not, the Judge said.
We used to hear the left say, stay out of our bedrooms, and opponents are now saying, stay out of our bathrooms too.
The left is saying it’s bigotry and segregation and there might be some people who are but this argument is righteous.
Governor McCrory is up for re-election and the North Carolina Transgender bathroom/locker room bill is a great get out the vote campaign for his opponent.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch comparing the bathroom bill HB2 to segregation was “offensive” to the state and to him, McCrory said in an interview last night. He said it’s not a gay, lesbian issue, it’s a common sense issue.
The powerful Human Rights Campaign is behind it and McCrory said the head of the HRC told him he was going to make North Carolina the epicenter of transgender rights, and that once he’s done with NC he’s going to move to the rest of the nation.
These people need to get a life or maybe take a real look at the problems in the world and focus their attention on that.
As McCrory explained, the Obama administration is interpreting law because there is nothing in the Civil Rights Act defining gender identity.
It’s about more Federal government control.
