North Carolina has modified its law on gender identity and the use of bathrooms and locker rooms, after facing pressure from LGBT activists and their allies in business, sports and entertainment.
But some say the changes take the wrong path.
"Every North Carolinian deserves to have their privacy respected in intimate settings like locker rooms and restrooms," said Kellie Fiedorek, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, March 30.
"One of government's essential duties is to protect the citizens it governs, not to create uncertainty about whether showers and locker rooms will still be safe for women and girls," she said. "North Carolina's economy is booming, so the state should not let the NCAA and others dictate the state's policies and sell out their citizens' interests based on flat-out lies about an economic doomsday that never happened."
