Representative Dean Arp spelled out why the state legislature had to step in on this important issue. He said “It's common sense, biological men should not be in women's showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms.” Representative Arp is exactly right to voice this concern. Allowing people to chose their restroom based on whatever gender they claim at any given moment opens the door to all sorts of dangerous situations. Male sexual offenders could then legally invade the restrooms or locker rooms of women and young girls. This is a fundamental violation of privacy rights and common decency.
More states should follow the example of North Carolina and make sure that women and especially young girls are protected from this. The ongoing transgender debate shows just how far the homosexual agenda is willing to go to secure their so-called “equality.” They used to say that allowing their “equality” would not affect heterosexual people at all. That clearly is not the case anymore. Giving special legal protections to people who question their gender has destabilized one of the most fundamental distinctions among people. It is also causing many young people to be confused about themselves and their bodies. This should not be the case. We cannot allow local governments and schools to breach our fundamental right to privacy, common decency, and safety in the name of political correctness.
