North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory Amends His Bigoted Law To Be Slightly Less Bigoted… See All The Changes!

no title

Is the wrong side of history getting a little too lonely for you, Pat?

As you’ve probably heard by now, North Carolina passed a law three weeks ago that allowed discrimination towards the LGBT community and also forced transgender individuals to use the bathroom of the gender to which they were assigned at birth.

Luckily, many people across the country, as well as celebrities and even some companies took issue with the bigoted bill and have boycotted the state.

Well, now that Gov. Pat McCrory kind of highhandedly lost his state hundred of jobs and millions in revenue, he’s decided to amend the original bigoted bill just a bit.

The Conservative politician released a video message on Tuesday where he tried to defend his discriminatory bill, and while he did fix some of the problems, we don’t believe he did enough.

Sexual preference and gender identity are once again covered by the state’s employment policy (yay!), but “common sense gender-specific restrooms” are still going to be the norm even though now it’s encouraged to offer people with “special circumstances” accommodations.

It’s a step in the right direction, but the fact remains: McCrory is still trying to implement laws that discriminate against trans people — it doesn’t matter that it’s a slightly better version of the law now.

Plus, since this was a law that was practically impossible to enforce — since y’know, there aren’t cops stationed at every public bathroom, what was the Governor hoping to accomplish?

Well, we believe his plan was clearly to scare far right voters who are starting to warm up to the LGBT community to focus on their lack of knowledge about trans individuals in an effort to keep them voting Republican.

But don’t worry, we still hope you lose your job over all this, though, Pat!
