Roy Cooper, the Democratic Governor of North Carolina, is calling on a judge to abolish the state's controversial "bathroom law" and replace it with HB 142, a pro-transgender policy which will give men the right to use women's bathrooms.
Whereas the Consent Parties agree that Section 2 of H.B. 142 must be interpreted to mean that no executive agency, officer, employee, or agent thereof, may promulgate any regulation which prevents transgender people from using public facilities in accordance with their gender identity, nor subject transgender people to prosecution pursuant to N.C.G.S. § 114-11.6.
Whereas the Consent Parties further agree that any interpretation or application of Section 2 of H.B. 142 that bars, prohibits, blocks, deters, or impedes transgender people from using public facilities in accordance with their gender identity or subjects transgender people to arrest, prosecution, or criminal sanctions for doing so, raises serious federal-law concerns, including concerns over constitutional guarantees of equal protection and due process, as well as other applicable federal statutes.
Leftists love to make this whole bathroom issue about civil rights, but it's really not about that at all. Instead, this is first and foremost an issue about security. Laws like this one are a slippery slope, as they make it impossible for women to close the door on men in their locker rooms and bathrooms. This makes it disturbingly easy for male sexual predators to force their way into the women's bathroom and then claim they are simply "transgender" when they are told to leave.
The dangers of laws like this were revealed once again this week, when a man who says he is a woman was arrested in Wyoming for molesting a 10 year-old girl in a public bathroom. How can parents feel safe allowing their little girls to use the bathroom when there could be sexual predators waiting for them in there?
In the end, most women who are actually transgender look feminine enough to use the women's room unchallenged with or without this law, so it's really of no use to them. The only thing this law does is open the door to sexual predators who can misuse it to assault girls more easily!
