I’m deeply ashamed of North Carolina’s new law against transgender rights

I love calling North Carolina my home. But I am very disappointed in our legislature right now.

Ah, North Carolina. The home of Tar Heels, shagging, and good ole’ homophobia. Wait, homophobia?

Yep. You read that right. Recently, the NC legislature passed a bill that will ban local governments from extending anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people. This law particularly affects transgender people and their right to use the correct bathroom. All public schools, government agencies and public colleges will have to designate bathrooms for use only by people based on their biological sex.

Disappointed North Carolinians and other concerned Americans took to Twitter to voice their anger and disappointment with the trending hashtag #WeAreNotThis.
