North Carolina Loses NCAA Tournaments Over HB2


NBC News:

The NCAA announced Monday evening it would pull seven championship tournament games out of North Carolina because of a controversial state law that critics say is discriminatory to the LGBT community.

“Based on the NCAA’s commitment to fairness and inclusion, the Association will relocate all seven previously awarded championship events from North Carolina during the 2016-17 academic year,” the NCAA said in a statement.

Millions of tourism dollars will be lost.  North Carolina lawmakers reacted to a Charlotte ordinance allowing transgender folks to use the bathroom labeled with the gender they ‘identify with.’

The organization said “current North Carolina state laws” don’t align with its commitment to “promote an inclusive atmosphere for all college athletes, coaches, administrators and fans.”

The strongest argument about HB2 states that transgender individuals just want to fit in, they never commit crimes in the bathroom and that men would never sneak a peek.  

Here’s Kate, and her story.  She had her kids with her.  He had a phone.  In the women’s locker room.  Watching other women shower.

    This statement is a bold face lie, if they truly believed it then they would have done nothing.

    doesn’t the NCAA separate the teams by sex? aren’t there “men” and “women” teams?
