I hope gender identity stays out of the law because it's not real. It's like your soul. In all other accounts our NCGA thinks economic competiveness means race to the bottom and we are something on the level of 3rd world labour

About 75% of the companies in my field have announced that they are dropping Paypal and switching to sqare as a result of PayPal's decision.

Your soul isn't real? What?

And luckily, your opinion means jack. There are people with a better understanding that says otherwise.

The mind is a complex instrument, how in the world can you say what is and isn't real.

Now what if Charlotte had the foreseight to understand the NCGA would do exactly what they said trans folk could go to their bathroom of choice, paypal would be here, tears wouldnt be shed, and all NC forums wouldn't be under constant HB2 spam from now till ????
That is some good revisionist history. I won't even get into the middle school text speak.

I didn't even know about the Charlotte ordinance until the GA started whipping up the non-issue. And how in the he*l can you twist something so much to blame this on Charlotte? That's freaking rich. I'll give props for that mental gymnastics. If you took half as much energy to understand this issue that you find icky, I am sure you would be more accepting.

Yeah, no lunatics on Facebook...

Does PayPal offer a POS reader and backoffice support like Square? Same fees? I have no idea, but are we sure we're comparing apples to apples rather than some (alleged) righteous uprising?
Irregardless, NC just pooped away a multi-million dollar investment with some 400 jobs. Well done, I'm sure it will all be made up for with increased sales of Jesus candles to the flock. Get on down to Hobby Lobby while supplies last...

I don't think Charlotte should have to pay for trying to further the equal protection of the city's LGBT community.

Nor does poster understand that Square and PayPal are in very different segments of e-commerce and don't have much if any overlap in services provided.
