NC Gov McCrory Signs Executive Order On HB2, Clarifying Points Of Legislation

This is what a good leader does: listens to people, and solves some of the issues. There were a few points in HB2 which concerned people ….. well, the entire thing freaked out Leftists, who, for some reason, are super concerned about allowing those few gender confused people out their to share bathrooms with Other People’s children, yet are strangely unconcerned with the way radical Islam treats gays….., such as protections for gay workers. McCrory released this statement

Governor Pat McCrory has signed an Executive Order to protect the privacy and equality of all North Carolinians. Executive Order 93 clarifies existing state law and provides new protections for North Carolina residents.

Executive Order 93 does the following:

  • Maintains common sense gender-specific restroom and locker room facilities in government buildings and schools
  • Affirms the private sector’s right to establish its own restroom and locker room policies
  • Affirms the private sector and local governments’ right to establish non-discrimination employment policies for its own employees
  • Expands the state’s employment policy for state employees to cover sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Seeks legislation to reinstate the right to sue in state court for discrimination

With this Executive Order, the State of North Carolina is now one of 24 states that have protections for sexual orientation and gender identity for its employees.

“After listening to people’s feedback for the past several weeks on this issue, I have come to the conclusion that there is a great deal of misinformation, misinterpretation, confusion, a lot of passion and frankly, selective outrage and hypocrisy, especially against the great state of North Carolina,” said Governor McCrory. “Based upon this feedback, I am taking action to affirm and improve the state’s commitment to privacy and equality.” (WT note: all bold comes from the website, the red is mine)

The two big points here are that he will seek legislation that will restore the right to sue for discrimination in state court, which was a boo boo in HB2, and local government is allowed to have it’s own non-discrimination policies. Also, this provides protections for LGBT workers in state government, which, really, were already there per state and federal law, this executive order simply reaffirms it. HB2 never did away with those protections, unlike how the unhinged opponents portrayed it.

Real leaders understand that sometimes there are errors in legislation, unintended consequences, and will work to fix them. That’s what McCrory did (quite frankly, McCrory has always been a middle of the road Republican, not a Conservative). Others like to double down on failure. And, if Liberals do not like HB2, they can win the election. HB2 has much less of a consequence than the travesty of Obamacare. So a few gender confused cannot use the bathroom of their “gender identity”, and must use the locker room and shower of their biological gender, at least within government property. The private sector can have whatever policy they choose.
