North Carolina - I Can't Believe I'm Posting About This State Again!

From the editorial board of the New York Times:

 "By promoting the ludicrous idea that transgender women are inherently dangerous, the law endangers citizens who are already disproportionately vulnerable to violence and stigmatization. Transgender men go largely unmentioned in bathroom bill debates, but that could change. James Parker Sheffield, a transgender man with a beard, exposed the foolishness of the law in a tweet to the governor. “It’s now the law for me to share a restroom with your wife,” he wrote, attaching a photo of himself. North Carolina could face serious economic repercussions from the law. It can expect a backlash from leading employers, a potential cut in federal education funding and lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the law."

  1. The New York Times editorial was spot-on. I can foresee a lot of issues coming up in the ensuing months. One of these will be for the transgender people and restroom access. I would be shocked to see a bearded man sharing a woman's public restroom with me. What if this person is not really transgender but just a perv taking advantage of the NC law? There would be no way to differentiate without checking the person's anatomy. This is just one big confusing mess!
