    @JMHO --

    "You always try to prove a point by stating the most outrageous things."

    Not always -- but sometimes, the "outrageous thing" is the logical endpoint of the opposition's argument.

    "Who cares what they look like?"

    Don't you? Would you like to see Aydian Dowling, Buck Angel, or Loren Cameron walking into the women's restroom?

    That's the logical endpoint of NC's law -- it requires hairy, muscular trans men to use the lady's room.

    And since it requires them to use the lady's room, it also allows ANY hairy, muscular man to enter the lady's room at will. No need to even dress up like a woman or shave his beard. If anyone questions him, he can simply claim to be trans.

    So, you see, NC's current law is what actually puts women and children at risk. Anyone who cares about the safety of their wives and daughters should OPPOSE NC's current law.

    Contra: You always try to prove a point by stating the most outrageous things. Who cares what they look like? I have seen some pretty feminine men in the restroom before and didn't bat an eyelash. I'm sure the bearded lady at the state fair uses the ladies room. Can't common sense mean anything anymore? Maybe if we just work a solution in the few cases that arise? Why do we have to include everyone in an issue that should be handled privately?

    "North Carolina should be applauded for holding moral values."

    So you want to see hairy, muscular trans men in the women's restrooms?

    North Carolina should be applauded for holding moral values.

    Thank you!

    "Ginger and other liberals will be the first to file grievances when their children are the subject of abuse of this goofy bathroom rule"

    Yeah, no.

    NC's bathroom law **requires** hairy, muscular trans men to use the women's restroom.

    Would you rather see Aydian Dowling, Buck Angel, or Loren Cameron in the women's room, or the men's room?

    Ginger and other liberals will be the first to file grievances when their children are the subject of abuse of this goofy bathroom rule, and will claim they had nothing to do with it, even though they will vote for hacks who support it!

    "I can value someone and treat them with respect without worrying about the guy looking like a guy using the bathroom with my daughter in there."

    If you are worried about a guy who looks like a guy using the bathroom with your daughter, then you should OPPOSE NC's discriminatory law.

    NC's law REQUIRES hairy, muscular trans men to use women's bathrooms. Is that really who you want in that bathroom with your daughter?

    Go look at pictures of Aydian Dowling, Buck Angel, and Loren Cameron. These are trans men. Would you rather have them in the men's room, or the women's room? NC **requires** them to use the women's room.

    Go look at pictures of Laverne Cox, Andreja Pejic, and Yasmine Petty. These are trans women. Would you rather have them in the women's room, or the men's room? NC **requires** them to use the men's room.

    “"Conservatives" in North Carolina are causing their whole state to suffer.”

    It can just as easily be stated that the social justice warriors who have infiltrated the NCAA have caused North Carolina to suffer. The teams, fans and businesses of North Carolina have broken no federal or state law; nor have they broken any bylaws of the NCAA.

    I find it hard to believe that NCAA is allowed to take the high moral ground. This is an organization that makes millions of dollars while preventing the source of the income, the athletes, to earn any money. Sure, the athletes supposedly get an education (unless it comes in the way of their performance on the field), but the year after they graduate they can earn millions. The only thing that changed is that they are no longer under the thumb of the NCAA.
    What will the NCAA say when transgenders no longer just want bathroom rights, but the right to play on the team of their own perceived gender?

    We can already see what society is becoming with the ‘liberals’ and social justice warriors running amok.

    Ginger,

    I can value someone without having to share a bathroom with her. I can value someone and treat them with respect without worrying about the guy looking like a guy using the bathroom with my daughter in there.

    There is room for decency and barriers still, right?

    States that have official policy and laws that discriminate or mistreat minority citizens are being shunned by businesses and organizations that operate nationally and see the value of all people.

    This is not good news for BYU.

    I wonder if this will have any impact of byu-p trying to get into the Big12. They may not want to deal with the protests or any other issues it may cause by adding byu-p.

    Well . . . "Conservatives" in North Carolina are causing their whole state to suffer.

    Isn't that always the way it is?

    THAT is what can happen when you let "Conservatives" have their way.

    This is a Mark Emmert move.
