N.C. Gov. Can't Even Enforce Anti-Trans Bathroom Law' In His Own Building
A person in North Carolina used a bathroom today.
In almost any other state, that wouldn't qualify as news (nor should it). In North Carolina, it's now an act of political protest.
Mara Keisling, the head of the National Center for Transgender Equality, used the women's restroom in North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory's office today while working to repeal HB 2, which bars transgender people from using public bathrooms that match their gender identity.
"I used the women's room in the governor's office," Keisling wrote under a Facebook photo commemorating the restroom in question. "Governor McCrory can't even enforce his law in his own house."
Keisling told HuffPost the event was ... uneventful.
"[I] did my business, I minded my business and I went on with my business," she said.
"This is the first time using the bathroom has really been a big news story," Keisling added. "There were people in the bathroom, and coming out of the restroom. And like the five times a day I use a public restroom, nothing happened. No one noticed."
