Major corporations that are putting economic pressure on the state of North Carolina should explain why they chose to be on the side of sexual predators that would most certainly take advantage of a condition allowing men to use the ladies bathroom or lock room under false pretenses to commit sexual crimes. This is the issue Governor Pat McCrory is trying to avoid to protect the health and safety of women and the most vulnerable, our children.
CNBC reports the onslaught of criticism, economic sanctions and a lawsuit being leveled at Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina grew on Tuesday, as the largest corporation in his state joined the fight against a new law that eliminated anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Bank of America, which has its headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., announced late Tuesday on Twitter that its leadership was joining over 80 chief executives, including Timothy D. Cook of Apple and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, in objecting to the new law. Earlier in the day, the chief executives published a letter, addressed to Mr. McCrory, on the Human Rights Campaign website, saying, “Such laws are bad for our employees and bad for business.”
Mr. McCrory, a Republican, signed the law last Wednesday to create a mandatory statewide anti-discrimination policy that excludes protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The bill, created by Republican legislators in an emergency session that same day, was intended to overrule a new municipal ordinance in Charlotte, the state’s largest city, that provided such protections, including allowing transgender people to use bathrooms according to the gender they identify with.
The LBGT community is not being discriminated against. It’s a charge that is totally without merit and it’s really a scare tactic to hold the state hostage to a false premise.
