Governor McCrory Defends the Basic Privacy of our Children in Schools in Response to Virginia Case

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Governor Pat McCrory issued the following statement:

  • "School systems throughout our nation should be allowed to make sensible accommodations for students whose gender identity conflicts with their own physical anatomy. Yet the extreme Obama courts and administration deny this common sense flexibility at the expense of privacy for millions of boys and girls in our schools' restrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities.
  • "It's unfortunate that our attorney general Roy Cooper didn't join us to protect the expectation of privacy for our children.
  • "As Judge Niemeyer notes in his opinion, '..they can override these provisions by redefining sex to mean how any given person identifies himself or herself at any given time, thereby, of necessity, denying all affected persons the dignity and freedom of bodily privacy.'
  • "He went on to say, and I agree, '...the momentous nature of this issue deserves an open road to the Supreme Court to seek the Court's controlling construction of Title IX for national application.'
  • "Alternatively, the U.S. Congress could take action to clarify the scope of federal anti-discrimination laws so there is consistent application across our country."

Should Americans be thankful for North Carolinians setting precedent in taking a stand for their state's right to manage the safety of their public facilities, where separation of the sexes remains, or should they follow Bruce Springsteen's lead and boycott the state as bigots since they will not allow grown Transgender men to use the same bathrooms /locker rooms as pre-pubescent girls?
  North Carolina is right to control the separation of the sexes as a matter of decorum and safety.
  North Carolina is a bigoted state to not require that children of opposite sexes share the same public facilities with adults of the opposite sex, although misidentified - the Transgender.
  I generally prefer the natural environs of the vacant, although rather public, large tree.
