Chances are they are probably a retired conservative politician. At least according to the nightly news.

By that logic, I guess transgender people can tell tales as well.

I very much doubt that a nude trans with a penis has been showering with girls for decades. That is what the Charlotte ordinance would allow. It would also then prevent any male showering with the girls from being removed from the building, as long as he "claimed" he identities as a female today.

As far as toilet stalls, like you say, trans have been using them for years. No reason for Charlotte to have changed a working system and started all this kaos. Stupid move.

As a female, I am the audience that the GOP wants to con. I'm not buying it for one second. 2 links were posted on the nature of the "sleight of hand". You want to buy it? Go ahead. Again, it's not that they care. They don't. They just want the focus off their present to Art Pope.

I'm not worried about assaults from transgender people at all. Most opponents of Charlotte's ordinance aren't either.

We are talking PAST each other instead of listening carefully to the actual concerns of one another.

This ain't about protecting women/children or safety.

You nailed it.

How is HB2 going to be enforced anyway?

Are cops going to be stationed in front of public rest rooms?

There is no genital police. The bathroom part is just the smokescreen for the unrelated nastiness tacked on which is a big wet kiss to Art Pope who is the NC version of the Koch brothers. If you didn't read the articles in the News and Observer thread, do so. The one about the pirates is hysterically funny, inspite of the accuracy.
