Yes, perhaps we need third bathrooms. Personally, I feel that I have rights also, and that my privacy as a straight person is to be respected as well.

This reaction to the house bill is all about air time. Frankly I think the people who are making the most noise are all about maximizing LGBT air time in a news cycle that's consumed with Trump and the Presidential race.

Your okay with a employer denying someone a job or laying someone off because of their race, sex, orientation, or religion? This bill strips away those protections.

This bill doesn't encourage discrimination. Race, color, religion, age, and handicap have been protected and in this bill with added biological sex.
Even though I am having trouble finding the exact wording, but the only thing that has been stated in regards to this is discrimination must go to federal instead of the state.

That's the whole point. State is no longer dealing with discrimination cases! Why do you think 80 companies, some fortune 500 companies, are against it?

Over who uses a toilet and misfed information that this state enacted discrimination laws on LGBT when LGBT never had protection in this state. LGBT are not protected federally either.

This law just removed cities enacting ordinances that are not covered by the state.

Buisness can still have their non discrimination policies but what Charlotte did and I watched the meeting online was forcing commercial buisness to comply.

He may be okay with his legal rights in this state being taken away, but I'm not. He is taking for granted all the progress that has been made.
