A month ago, the city of Charlotte (home of the NOT-Super Bowl champions) lost its collectivist nut, and forced all public bathrooms within the city limits to go "transgender," with no exceptions and no alternative accomadations like one-at-a-time unisex rest rooms, and also doubtless giving normal, mentally healthy "Queen City" residents plenty of practice at either "going before they leave home" or hardcore sphincter-tightening. TG-ing private households is doubtless next on the agenda.
The State government warned that there would be a swift reckoning:
Governor Pat McCrory warned two Charlotte City Council members....that if the city approves new legal protections for [homosexual], lesbian and transgender people on Monday, the vote would “most likely cause immediate State legislative intervention.”
McCrory is concerned about a provision in the proposed expanded ordinance that would allow transgender residents to use either a men’s or a women’s bathroom. That part of the ordinance has also caused a furor in Charlotte and led to the ordinance being defeated 6-5 last year.
“It is not only the citizens of Charlotte that will be impacted by changing basic restroom and locker room norms but also citizens from across our State and nation who visit and work in Charlotte,” McCrory said in an email to the council’s two Republicans, Ed Driggs and Kenny Smith. “This shift in policy could also create major public safety issues by putting citizens in possible danger from deviant actions by individuals taking improper advantage of a bad policy.”
McCrory, a Republican, continued: “Also, this action of allowing a person with male anatomy, for example, to use a female restroom or locker room will most likely cause immediate State legislative intervention which I would support as governor.”
Governor McCrory wasn't bluffing, and today he and the North Carolina legislature delivered:
The North Carolina legislature on Wednesday passed a sweeping bill overturning [homosexual] and transgender [infli]ctions at the local level and requiring students to use public restrooms that correspond to their biological sex.
"Biological sex". This term actually isn't a silly-ass redundancy anymore. Good Lord.
Governor Pat McCrory, a former Charlotte mayor, signed the bill hours later, according to the Associated Press.
State lawmakers pushed the measure in response to a nondiscrimination [against the Gaystapo; it discriminates against literally EVERYBODY else] ordinance adopted in the city of Charlotte that, among other things, allowed people to use the bathroom that matched with their "gender identity". Legislators said immediate action was necessary to protect children and women from sexual predators who might pose as transgender to gain access to women’s restrooms.
Geez, ya think? Can you picture "Nature Boy" Ric Flair (not that he would ever do this, but it's a great and locally relevant illustration) ever saying something like.....
"MEEEEEEEEAAAAAN, WHOO!, GENE!. You know who I am; I am the NA-TURE BOY, WHOO! Stylin' and profilin', looking only as I can look! But today, the kiss-stealin, wheelin-dealin, limousine-riding, jet-flyin son of a gun is feelin' a little different, you know what I'm sayin? Like even though I'm the, WHOO!, sixty-minute man, and to beat The Man, WHOO!, you gotta beat The Man, WHOO!....I wanna find out how the other half lives! And I've gotta drain the anaconda real bad, daddy, so I'm puttin on a dress and I'm goin in the other door, jack, and anybody who tries to stop me is gonna bleed and sweat and pay the price! WHOO!"
You can't imagine that scenario, can you? Neither can I. And there's a good reason for it: IT'S BLEEPING RIDICULOUS. It's the Charlotte Perverts Act of 2016. It's lunacy. And it's an open declaration of war on women and children. I'll say it again, how is it that the feminists aren't shrieking bloody murder and raising unshirted hell about this issue, if they're really about protecting both from sexual predators and van-owners with melted Milk Duds on their laps?
Kinda answers itself, doesn't it?
I'd be surprised if this law isn't injuncted before the afternoon is out, and federal troops ordered into the State by the White House to start importing the the dicked "women" and addadicktome'd "men".and all additional fifty-six "genders" just as "fluidly" into public bathrooms from one end of the Tar Heel State to the other as they can. Because "we are all 'transgender' now."
A gender sanity group, as one of the last lights to go out in this acid trip of a culture, has issued the most commonsensical, scientifically sound gender primer that has ever ought-to-be-needlessly needed to be reiterated:
1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident. The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex.1
2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one. No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female; this awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward. People who identify as “feeling like the opposite sex” or “somewhere in between” do not comprise a third [or fifty-sixth] sex. They remain biological men or biological women.2,3,4 [emphases added]
Trannyphobic or "Why in the blue hell are we even HAVING this asinine conversation?"
Last word on this heroic act of defiant federalism to Governor McCrory before the feds frog-march him out of the governor's mansion:
“The basic expectation of privacy in the most personal of settings, a restroom or locker room, for each gender was violated by government overreach and intrusion by the mayor and city council of Charlotte. This radical breach of trust and security under the false argument of equal access not only impacts the citizens of Charlotte but people who come to Charlotte to work, visit or play. This new government regulation defies common sense and basic community norms by allowing, for example, a man to use a woman’s bathroom, shower or locker room.
“While local municipalities have important priorities working to oversee police, fire, water and sewer, zoning, roads, and transit, the mayor and city council took action far out of its core responsibilities. As a result, I have signed legislation passed by a bipartisan majority to stop this breach of basic privacy and etiquette which was to go into effect April 1st. Although other items included in this bill should have waited until regular session, this bill does not change existing rights under State or federal law.
“It is now time for the city of Charlotte elected officials and state elected officials to get back to working on the issues most important to our citizens.” [emphasis added]
