Transgender bathroom use has somehow become a hot button issue in today’s America.
That’s how far this culture has fallen. Literally to the point where we have a President directing public schools to allow boys into girls’ restrooms.
Could you ever have imagined this, say 50 or even 20 years ago?
The NBA announced earlier this week they are moving their 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotte is the home of one of their franchises, called the Hornets—run by Michael Jordan.
Why would they move the game? Because the people of North Carolina had enough sense left to pass a law requiring people to use public restrooms corresponding to the sex listed on their birth certificate.
And in the name of political correctness and being against so-called ‘discrimination,’ the NBA objected. To show their solidarity with the LBGTQ(ABC) community, they ‘punished’ the state of North Carolina by withholding their All-Star Game there.
To me, this seems a bit hypocritical.
For one, the NBA has left open the opportunity for the game to be held in Charlotte in 2019. I guess they have hope (and confidence) that by then the law will be changed to allow men into women’s restrooms.
And more importantly, on the other hand, the NBA is known for its stiff handling of domestic violence offenses. Just ask Jeff Taylor, who ironically played for the Charlotte Hornets in 2014.
And good for the NBA. After the NFL severely mishandled the domestic violence case of Ray Rice, every professional sports league’s policy on domestic violence was put on notice.
Each league has every right and duty to hand out stiff punishments for domestic violence committed by any of its players, coaches, or staff. This should be commended.
Each of these leagues has become more liberal than ever before—especially the NFL and the NBA. Thus, it remains amazing there remain any acts any of its members can commit that receive backlash.
After all, the NBA considers hiring a hitman to murder one’s own unborn child a non-punishable action.
Yet, if someone slaps around his girlfriend or wife, then the player is condemned in the court of public opinion. And I am not saying he shouldn’t be.
So, what’s this have to do with transgender bathroom use?
Well, the connection is not too far-fetched. You see, the NBA claims to care about the safety and well-being of women and children.
Therefore, to be consistent, you would think and hope the NBA would support HB2. That is the name of the law passed in North Carolina regulating transgender bathroom use to each person’s sex listed on their birth certificate.
And why would supporting the law keep more women and children safe? Well, because there remains a growing list of examples of perverted men sexually offending women in women’s restrooms.
The retailer Target, as everyone knows, announced a new policy on transgender bathroom use. They permit anyone to use any restroom in their stores they choose. This, inevitably, has led to men being able to act as predators towards girls and women in women’s restrooms.
Take the example of Sean Patrick Smith in Idaho Falls. This pervert went into a women’s restroom in Target and began snapping photos of a woman while she was in a stall. He was subsequently arrested.
Here are more examples of these perverts:
In the name of common sense and protection of female NBA fans, I hope the NBA reverses its stance on the North Carolina law on transgender bathroom use.
Or maybe protecting women and children isn’t what the NBA values, after all.
What is your take on the NBA moving its All-Star Game over transgender bathroom use?
