    Transgender people who have not taken surgical and legal steps to change the gender noted on their birth certificates have no legal right under state law to use public restrooms of the gender with which they identify. Cities and counties no longer can establish a different standard. Critics of the Charlotte ordinance cite privacy concerns and say it was “social engineering” to allow people born as biological males to enter women’s restrooms.

    McCrory’s office says businesses aren’t limited by the bill, and that private companies and private universities can adopt new or keep existing nondiscrimination policies. Private businesses can establish their own practices concerning LGBT employees and customers; the new law does not allow so-called “public policy common law” complaints in state courts to challenge those practices.

    This is one of the many things liberals do that discussed me . Why should some guy walk into a woman's room dressed like a woman and scare the hell out of all the ladies . Why should all the women in my life that I love have to be put a pond to accept these odd balls . I have seen these charters and they are yeah strange to say the least .Now they glorify the trans gender 's with this Bruce Genner TV show likes normal to dress like a woman . If Springsteen don't want to do a show because of this to hell with him ,he should be supporting the women that are victimized by these types. I know that if your transgender and ya can't help it then ya should except this as your cross to bear in life .

    Pearl Jam is cancelling showing in NC as well, also writing a song about it
    of course no one would really notice since all their songs sound the same

    Target has almost the same business practices as Walmart. They do things like this to keep getting the the media jihad that Walmart does. And it works.

    I like Target more than Wally's World.. Much cleaner stores and management is more involved in customer relations...

    Men using the ladies room is usually how we look at this, but I got to thinking; how about the other way around? That is, transgender women? Which bathroom should they use? Would you want the women in your life to use a public restroom with a biological women who looked, acted, and thought like a man? I stick with my idea that your parts decide which room you use, but that would put "men" with beards in the ladies room.

    Kimmer is not to bright, Occupy a seat in a history class, any and all Kennedy's, multi Billy, LBJ, FDR............on and on and on....basically all the modern democratic presidents, bit of a democratic theme there don't you think and of course there's Barry, hasn't been caught yet, but with the the wandering eye and the way he checks the ladies over, and the rumors, it's coming.
