It Is Not Us.

We have always been going the bathroom and now the Republicans and the news media want to sensationalize it, so don’t blame us. If you want someone to blame look in the mirror.

The economic power of the LGBT rights movement is about to be put to the test in the standoff over a so-called "bathroom bill" in North Carolina.

LGBT advocates are renewing their calls for boycotts after North Carolina legislators adjourned late Friday without making substantial changes to the law, which requires transgender people to use public bathrooms and changing facilities based on the sex "which is stated on a person's birth certificate." The law, signed by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory in March, also bars localities from enacting ordinances to the contrary.

The Justice Department said the measure violates civil rights laws and is seeking a court order to block it.

"Businesses who care about being bullied by the Human Rights Campaign more than they care about the citizens they serve or the profits their company makes are doing so to their own detriment," said Executive Director Tami Fitzgerald [of the North Carolina Values Coalition ].
The Republicans have made us the punching bag so that they can get votes, they realize that trans people using the bathroom can bring in donations and energize their base at the sake of the trans community. While the media has realized that by sensationalize us they can sell more ads.
