Bathroom Inspector McCrory: It's All About the Peepees and Hoohoos, Y'all

Gov. Pat McCrory promised two members of the Charlotte City Council Sunday that there will be swift and sure consequences if the majority votes to allow people to pee and poo in public restrooms where the Lord hath forbade them by assignment of penis or vagina. 

The City Council is scheduled to vote tonight on whether to approve new legal protections for gay, lesbian and transgender people. Those protections would include allow transgender people to use either men's or women's restrooms, which led to the ordinance being voted down last year.

 From the Charlotte Observer:

“It is not only the citizens of Charlotte that will be impacted by changing basic restroom and locker room norms but also citizens from across our state and nation who visit and work in Charlotte,” McCrory said in an email to the council’s two Republicans, Ed Driggs and Kenny Smith. “This shift in policy could also create major public safety issues by putting citizens in possible danger from deviant actions by individuals taking improper advantage of a bad policy.”

McCrory, a Republican, continued: “Also, this action of allowing a person with male anatomy, for example, to use a female restroom or locker room will most likely cause immediate State legislative intervention which I would support as governor.”

As noted by The Charlotte Observer, Driggs and Smith, both Republicans, voted against the ordinance last year. 

However, eight of eleven council members have expressed support, so it looks like Pat will need to restrict his bathroom usage to exclusive members-only (double entendre intended) restrooms whenever he visits his old city.

In a video interview in the Charlotte Observer story, Mayor Jennifer Roberts explained why the council will likely approve the new protections.

“We have heard from many people living in Charlotte — from our employers, from the private sector, from folks we know who are LGBT – we’ve heard that nondiscrimination is very important,” Roberts says. “It’s important for all our employees and residents to feel welcomed, feel included, and feel like they are treated equally."
