The hoopla surrounding North Carolina’s HB2 (House Bill 2) legislation couldn’t be more confusing to decipher. And as usual, that is by design.
When you hear the way the mainstream media and opponents describe it, you would think that people are being denied ‘rights.’
North Carolina’s Republican-controlled legislature on Wednesday rejected a bid to repeal a state law restricting bathroom access for transgender people, which has drawn months of protests and boycotts by opponents decrying the measure as discriminatory.
The bill basically says that you use the bathroom based on what is between your legs, not what is between your ears. There are no “rights” of transgender people (less than 1% of society) to interfere with the rights of “normal” people to expect both privacy and security when using facilities like bathrooms, locker rooms, and common showers. When they were born, they had the same rights as everyone else. And still do.
What we have is a political movement to lower the bar of what is moral and right. There is nothing added for transgender or gender-confused people for them to deal with that they didn’t have 10, 50 or 100 years ago. And there’s no reason to change bathrooms for, or on, the 99% of the rest of society.
To that .3 % of society trying to bully the rest, get therapy or deal with it. And remember, diversity includes everyone.
