There’s one aspect of House Bill 2 that no one has addressed yet. It’s found in the section about public bathrooms and deals with exceptions to the new law. Buried in this Trojan horse of a bill is an obscure provision that prohibits any child 7 years or older from using a public bathroom that doesn’t correspond with his or her biological sex.
That means state police can arrest little Tommy, age 7, for going into the women’s room with his mom. His mom wouldn’t be breaking the law. Her 7-year-old son would be.
But not to worry, the new law has an equally insane solution. Although little Tommy isn’t allowed to go into the women’s bathroom with his mom, his mom is allowed to go into the men’s bathroom to assist little Tommy. That goes for dads with daughters 7 years and older, too.
In one of the greatest ironies of all, House Bill 2 forces more men to go into women’s bathrooms and more women to go into men’s bathrooms than ever before in the history of the world.
Never miss a local story.
