Backroom Deal on HB2 Changes Nothing

Word has arrived that the Republicans in Raleigh have proposed changes to HB2, mainly in the form of an application that a transgender citizen can fill out to get permission to use a public toilet.

That would be funny, except it's not.

The "fix" doesn’t restore any of the employment protections that HB2 abolished. Municipalities will still be unable to pass their own non-discrimination ordinances.

Hurry up, November 8!

With the "bathroom registry" provision that's proposed, will GOP candidates be asking if transgenders "deserve" pink triangles and number tattoos?
