House Bill 2 in North Carolina

I am very excited about HB2, in North Carolina, which was signed into effect last week. This bill makes it so that transgender people can’t use the bathroom of their own choice; they have to use the bathroom of the gender marked on their birth certificate. I think that this is great. It respects the privacy of people. What woman wants a man claiming to be a woman,  walking into their bathroom? It isn’t hate or discrimination when you have a law like this. The people that are fighting back on this bill are claiming that they just want to go to the bathroom in peace. Why are there two separate bathrooms in most places? To respect the TWO different genders. If such a thing is no big deal, why do we build walls and stalls in the first place? I honestly do not see how such a law is discriminating. I sure don’t want transgender woman claiming to be men walking into the bathroom when I’m using a urinal. It is such a simple, practical, and respectful thing to ask of people. These transgender/gay right deals are not civil rights. This is not even the same as racial discrimination. If anything, I can claim that my civil rights are being violated when a woman walks into a men’s restroom. I have my rights to personal privacy on such things, and when such things happen, I am being disrespected and degraded as a human being. In my opinion, transgender people should have to fund the building of their own restrooms. Think about it in this analogy- When you go to college,  you have the choice in the degree that you major in. You are hoping to get a job in the degree you are working towards. It’s all up to you, and it’s your own choice what you pick. When you are done with college, you go look for a job that’s applicable to what you have learned. Say that you study philosophy; you aren’t going to apply for a job in engineering, and if you do, you probably won’t get accepted, which is perfectly understandable.  You don’t say that you’re being discriminated against when not accepted.  You can philosophize about engineering, but you just can’t do it if you don’t know how. I view being transgender in the same way; you are like  a philosophy student who thinks that they’re an engineer. It’s out of your own choice that you become a philosophy student, and you aren’t an engineer, so you can’t engineer. You can write books, but you can’t design cars, buildings, or bridges. You aren’t being hated; you’re just supposed to be doing what you were created to do. Keeping men out of the women’s bathroom is the same; the men can have surgery and whatever else, but they are just like that philosophy teacher trying to be an engineer. You make the choices to do what you do, but that doesn’t entitle you to do whatever you want.

    I find it ironic that you have a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt on your page yet you espouse discrimination towards transgender people and gays.Ms. Roosevelt lived with two open lesbians for years, invited lesbians to the White House and never tolerated discrimination of any kind towards them.

      I had no idea that she supported lesbians; where did you find that? I don’t discriminate against, or hate transgender or gay people. I just don’t agree with their decisions to do what they do. Just because I don’t agree with somebody doesn’t mean I discriminate against them. I still treat them as a human being, unlike what aborted babies are treated like. Back to Eleanor’s quote… that was a completely different topic, and I still agree with the quote. I honestly don’t really care for all of FDR’s ideas, but that quote was, in my opinion, a good statement by Eleanor.

      I’ll check it out. As I said before… I don’t hate gay people, I just disagree with them.

    Colton, I have been reading through several of your articles, and let me just say an “amen”! You approach subjects that stir me up and that I believe in. I am a reformed, conservative Christian, and nothing stirs me up more than the prominent sin that is being said is right: homosexuality, abortion, et cetera. It just reminds me of Isaiah 5:20. “Doom to those who call evil good and good evil, who present darkness as light and light as darkness, who make bitterness sweet and sweetness bitter.” That being said, I am so happy about this bill, and completely agree with you! A man created a man is always a man; God made him a man; he cannot change. A woman is always a woman; God created her a woman and she cannot change. I believe that the bathroom issue is also matter of truth; it is dishonest to say you’re a woman when you are actually a man; and vice versa. I know a person who lives in NC, and they said their town made it okay for allowing transgender bathrooms. This was before this bill was passed, and I am thankful that it has made that now illegal. Just some thoughts.

    It’s sad this bill is necessary. I will admit I’m less concerned about the bathroom as I am the locker room. The bathroom has stalls for privacy. I understand the hurt feelings less than 2% of Americans feel about not getting to use the bathroom of their hearts desire, however why put 98% of people at risk or uncomfortable for the >2%? It’s not discrimination when in grade school everyone but two want to play basketball. No it’s just the majority wants to play basketballs. Why upset 23 kids to make 2 happy. Good work!
