I used to flip to the sports section to escape, but these days, even the world of pucks and pigskins is beholden to mind-numbing political correctness, Case in point: The National Basketball Association announced it’s stripping Charlotte, North Carolina of the 2017 NBA All-Star Game.
What egregious thing did the Charlotte Hornets do to get stung so badly by the NBA?
The Hornets did nothing but Charlotte incurred the league’s wrath over legislation the NBA finds abhorrent; North Carolina’s “bathroom bill” requires people to use the bathroom corresponding to the gender on their birth certificate.
Sadly, the NBA has joined ranks with PayPal, Cirque Du Soliel, and certain Hollywood studios, boycotting and economically penalizing the state for this trans-phobic bill.
Losing the All-Star Game will cost Charlotte about $100 million in tourism dollars, prompting Governor Pat McCrory to slam the NBA’s move as “[politically-correct] b.s.”
Watch as I explain why he’s right and provide a cautionary tale from Canada that shows if you buy into phoney-baloney transgender rights, you effectively turn your back on real women’s rights and commit a miscarriage of gender justice.
