Regarding the Oct. 12 news article “Feisty debate reveals wide differences”: In the Oct. 11 debate Gov. Pat McCrory said that if Caitlyn Jenner came to North Carolina she should use men’s facilities.
McCrory doesn’t understand the law he signed, House Bill 2, which defines “biological sex” as “The physical condition of being male or female, which is stated on a person’s birth certificate.” Jenner now holds a birth certificate marked “female,” thus legally bound in North Carolina to use public facilities designated for women, not men as McCrory would have it.
Arbitrary and capricious enforcement of law is at the heart of much social unrest. McCrory’s transphobia escapes the confines of his own law.
Fear-mongering should have no place in 21st century North Carolina even as McCrory and his “role model” Donald Trump see it as a path to electoral victory.
HB2 should be repealed. McCrory should be replaced.
