BIG NEW UPDATE: Convicted Sex Offender Was Behind North Carolina’s Boys-In-The-Girl’s Bathroom Law
Elliot Engstrom at Civitas calls out the Charlotte Observer, who knew about Sevearance’s status and didn’t report it.
The Charlotte Observer knew that Sevearance was a convicted sex offender, and yet never mentioned it once in its reporting. The newspaper certainly knew about this since at least February 18, when DontDoItCharlotte.com put out a report. (Though, considering that this information is discoverable with a quick google search, the paper likely knew about it before then, not to mention that his advocacy group also knew he was a convicted child molester and defended him by calling reports of his convictions “mudslinging.”)
Who couldn’t figure this would happen?
Via Red State:
Back in February, the city council of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed an law that made that city the happy hunting ground of sexual perverts.
North Carolina’s largest city passed a law Monday allowing transgender people to choose public bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity, which the governor had called a threat to public safety and warned that the General Assembly may step in.
The Charlotte City Council voted 7-4 to expand protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity, making it the latest frontier in a national debate on how businesses treat gay, lesbian and transgender customers. One of the revisions to the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance allows people to choose restrooms corresponding to the gender with which they identify.
This law is obvious nonsense and if you can’t see the logical outcome, sketchy older men hanging out in women’s rest rooms, you aren’t thinking very clearly.
Seattle Parks and Recreation is facing a first-of-a-kind challenge to gender bathroom rules. A man undressed in a women’s locker room, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity.
It was a busy time at Evans Pool around 5:30pm Monday February 8. The pool was open for lap swim. According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, a man wearing board shorts entered the women’s locker room and took off his shirt. Women alerted staff, who told the man to leave, but he said “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.”
No one was arrested in this case and police weren’t called, even though the man returned a second time while young girls were changing for swim practice. More
