Is North Carolina anti-LGBT to protect girls and women? That’s the question needing answered in light of the coordinated punitive campaign against the state in response to its passage of HB2 – the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act – on March 23, 2016.
Among other things, this act was meant to protect women and girls from the sexual predations of men sneaking into their bathrooms and attempting to peep at or abuse them. That seems like a noble cause, right? You might imagine that nobody could be offended by such an effort.
Guess again! Apparently protecting women and girls is just a ruse to conceal the vast right-wing North Carolina anti-LGBT conspiracy.
Should a man be allowed to use the ladies’ restroom? How about a couple of teenage boys using the girls’ bathroom? According to the LGBT community, yes they should. The only possible reason you could disagree is that you’re a hateful, ignorant, discriminatory bigot.
Men and boys should be able to use public ladies’ rooms even when that puts girls and women at much greater risk of being sexually assaulted or raped. You need not wonder why. The explanation is actually very simple: the LGBT movement is so adamantly opposed to being rightfully embarrassed about or ashamed of their sexual confusion and perversion that they’d rather expose girls and women to real and significant dangers than have their precious little feelings hurt.
But wait! It gets better. And by better, I mean worse.
Not only are you a bigot for trying to protect girls and women from being sexually assaulted and raped in public restrooms. It’s not enough to smear and slander your character and motives. Your whole state will be mocked, jeered, and boycotted from travel and commerce by the mainstream media, sports leagues, rock stars, movie stars, corporations, the governors of other states, and even the President, if it passes a law saying that girls and women should be allowed to use women’s public restrooms in privacy and security, without fear of a man coming in and sexually assaulting them.
What’s that War on Women Democrats are always accusing Republicans of waging?
LGBT Flies First-Class, Everyone Else Flies Coach
HB2 was passed by the North Carolina House of Representatives: 82 in favor, 26 against, and 11 absent. The North Carolina Senate later that same day voted: 32 in favor, 11 against, and 6 absent. The governor signed the bill into law. This is Democracy at work, right? The people voted into office their elected representatives, and those representatives crafted and passed this law.
It’s not good enough. Yet again, the will of the people and their elected representatives is not only moot but outrageously offensive unless it reflects the will of the elite LGBT minority and their supporters.
Don’t you dare oppose or disagree with them, or you and your state will be ostracized, demonized, and ridiculed. Just put your hands in the air and back away slowly. Interfering with this brave new world the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgenders are trying to give us will absolutely not be tolerated.
We need look no further for proof of this intolerance than the rapid response from Progressives to North Carolina’s passage of the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act.
Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen has cancelled shows in North Carolina as part of his “fight against prejudice and bigotry.”
The NBA has taken to Twitter threatening North Carolina that it may change its plans to host the 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte. Legendary basketball player Charles Barkley is foremost among the ranks of those urging the NBA to make good on these threats, explaining vapidly: “I think the NBA should move the All-Star game from there next year. As a black person, I’m against any form of discrimination — against whites, Hispanics, gays, lesbians, however you want to phrase it.”
Referencing this new law requiring men to use the men’s room and women to use the women’s room as the decisive factor, PayPal announced its intention to punish North Carolinians with the loss of 400 jobs. PayPal has since cancelled plans to place its global headquarters in Charlotte.
More than 100 companies – including Starbucks, Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Wells Fargo, CitiBank, Barnes & Noble, Kellogg Company, and American Airlines – have joined together in signing a letter calling for the repeal of this new North Carolina anti-LGBT law requiring men to not use girls’ restrooms.
As if all these economic pressures on North Carolina weren’t enough, high-minded New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order banning “all taxpayer-funded trips to North Carolina, unless they’re essential to public health or law enforcement.” In a sycophantic attempt to collect the goodwill of some of these corporations and celebrities, now suddenly up for grabs after being retracted from North Carolina, Cuomo promises that the state of New York intends to be “a beacon of hope and equality for the LGBT community.”
Last but not least, The New York Times reports the cherry on top: The Obama administration is trying to figure out whether this new North Carolina anti-LGBT law trying to keep men out of girls’ bathrooms “makes the state ineligible for billions of dollars in federal aid for schools, highways and housing.”
This North Carolina Anti-LGBT bathroom law isn’t about the LGBT movement at all; it’s about protecting women and girls from predation.
From rock stars to professional athletes to major corporations to the governors of other states, and finally to the President himself, Leftists are in a race to the bottom against one another. Progressives are absolutely tripping over one another to see who can prove theirs is the greatest mindless devotion to the demands of the LGBT movement.
What’s more, in ironic hypocrisy devoid of self-awareness, these Progressives of every stripe raging against North Carolina for discriminating against LGBT persons are punishing the state by discriminating against it. Go figure that one out.
The takeaway is clear: Little girls and young women apparently aren’t worth protecting – not unless they self-identify with the LGBT movement, that is.
Girls and women being victimized is therefore okay, so long as that victimization isn’t on the basis of their being LGBT. Sexual assault, rape, voyeurism, and indecent exposure are all acceptable collateral damage in pursuit of “equality,” so long as the LGBT movement gets what it wants.
Now if these North Carolinian women and girls were LGBT, on the other hand, the predations they’d be left vulnerable to without a law like HB2 would be met with outrage. Even barely hinting that such predations might be acceptable would be an outrage.
Unfortunate for the women and girls of North Carolina that they don’t have an aggressive, coordinated lobby waging manipulative media campaigns and crooked lawfare on their behalf. They don’t have a lobby, that is, unless ‘We The People’ refuse to accept their being exposed to sexual assault and rape in public restrooms. We American men – husbands and fathers and brothers – must speak up for the women of our states so that North Carolina doesn’t stand alone in protecting its wives and daughters and sisters.
Yes, it’s well past time we recognize that being heterosexual and content with the biological gender you were born with now makes you second-class citizens in the eyes of the Left. But just because that’s how the Left feels doesn’t mean we have to accept their threats and bullying. Right is right even if nobody is doing it. Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.
This isn’t a question of how many celebrities and corporations and politicians line up on one side or the other. It isn’t even about whether this or that bill is passed by a state’s legislature and signed into law by its governor. This is a question of basic decency and honor.
Protecting the privacy and safety of women in their own public restrooms doesn’t make North Carolina anti-LGBT. Pressing for and supporting common sense measures like HB2 doesn’t make someone a bigot. What it means is that we may still have a little, even just a little, backbone and sanity left. Let’s hope and pray to God we don’t lose it.
