Bathroom battles just begun
Placeholder Image
When the Department of Justice recently sent North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory a stern letter warning him that North Carolina’s House Bill 2, aka the bathroom bill, violated the Civil Rights Act, McCrory fought back.HB2 requires “that transgender people use public bathrooms that match their birth certificates.”In other words, males use the men’s room and females use the women’s room. Sounds logical to me, but it was quickly labeled “anti-Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT)” by some, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
