With irony I read the headline of the May 5 Point of View regarding House Bill 2, “The rights of vulnerable endangered.” What an amazing way to address having the rights of children endangered in public restrooms and their schools as Terry Moore-Painter sought to protect transgender adults.
I am amazed that Moore-Painter is willing to disregard a large sector of our populace for a minority for whom I am sympathetic but am growing increasingly weary as they and their advocates appear evermore self-serving.
I thank you for awakening a sleeping giant in me that I must advocate for the civil rights of everyone and not for a few who can be accommodated by not violating others’ civil rights.
We do “owe it to those who came before us, to those of us struggling today and to our future generations,” and we must speak up and support Gov. Pat McCrory and our state legislature for standing up for the weakest in our society.
