Don't play the victim card. Nobody's "taking joy" in the GA enacting a pro-discrimination bill.

First, you make no sense. Second, you take joy in posting negative NC news. It's all you do. There's 49 other states to choose from if you're so unhappy here.

Like so many of your other posts, this one too is not based on *things that actually happen*.

I'm impressed that you've remembered 'so many of my other posts'. I have to be honest, though. I can't remember any of your 3,400 posts.

I know it's semantics, but, isn't it discriminatory if they don't allow LGBT people to use any bathroom at all? I mean, it's not like they are told they can't use the bathroom of their biological sex? Theirs no favoritism when it comes to bathroom's of each sex. They both have the facilities needed to do what they are designed to do.

First, LGB people are not transgender and there is no question what their (our) "biological sex" is!

As far as transgender people, the issue with some who are fully transitioned is, someone can have a man's body in every way but one--muscles, beard, deep voice, etc--but still have "female parts", especially because F->M surgery is much more difficult than the other (easier to take it off than to put it on...). Previously, these transgender men have used the men's bathroom (in a stall of course) and nobody has questioned them. Now, the law is that they much use the bathroom of their "biological sex", or is it the one on their birth certificate? Therefore, the law now REQUIRES bearded, muscled men to use the Women's room because they still have a vagina.

I've seen examples of Facebook of some of these transgender men who now carry homemade cards saying "Hello, my name is Bill (whatever)--I would much prefer to be using the Men's Restroom, and I'm sure you would prefer that I use the Men's Restroom, but as per state law and HB2, I am now required to use the Women's. Please contact your legislator to overturn this law if it makes you as uncomfortable as it does me."

Unsurprising.

You've proven yourself impervious to logical arguments.

Saying I'm "apart of the problem" is asinine at best. Children are being kidnapped, raped and abused around the world by governments. You don't know me, so don't assume I'm apart of a problem, that I don't even vote for. Keep it cute boo
Actually, whats asinine is to "not do politics" in a representative democracy. And we're not talking about government in the abstract, or in some third world country that none of us have control over, we're talking about the government of the state of NC...one that we all hace a shared responsibility to participate in.

As for "Keep it cute boo", I have no idea what thats supposed to mean. If some sort of junior high school snark, then I guess that pretty well sums up your level of maturity. Hmm, maybe its better that you don't "do politics".
