The So-Called Repeal Of North Carolina’s ‘Bathroom Bill’ Is Bullshit!

North Carolina's repeal is bullshit!

North Carolina simply cannot get its shit together!

Legislators were set to vote Thursday on the repeal of House Bill 2 (HB2), also known as the “Bathroom Bill,” a bill that prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom that best adheres with their gender identities.

As a “compromise,” legislators offered a new version of the year-old law that is ostensibly a repeal of HB2, but actually continues to ban local municipalities and schools from regulating bathroom access. It also prevents cities from offering their own job and bathroom protections until 2020.

It’s not a real repeal! And still discriminates against LGBTQ people!

The NCAA has vowed to keep the state from any hosting duties until 2022, potentially costing it BILLIONS of dollars in revenue. It’s also one of the reasons legislators are now scrambling to repair the damage. Too bad they just can’t bring themselves to actually repeal the dumb and discriminatory law in the first place!

Plenty of celebs and LGBT activists decried the so-called compromise on Twitter:

It’s really disappointing and disheartening that North Carolina refuses to do better by some of its most vulnerable citizens.

We hope they come to their sense and fully repeal HB2.
