McCrory, on Tuesday defended the state’s anti-LGBT law, and blamed “liberals” for “a major change in culture” that has forced Republicans to respond with the legislation forming an anti-LGBT law.
North Carolina’s anti-LGBT law passed in March, removes anti-discrimination protection for LGBTQ people and mandates that people use the public bathrooms that correspond to the sex they were assigned at birth.
“In the private sector in North Carolina, she can go wherever the private sector wants her to,” Governor McCrory said in Tuesday’s debate between McCrory and his Democratic opponent, state Attorney General Roy Cooper.
“If she’s going to a shower facility at [University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill] after running around the track, she’s going to use the men’s shower.”
“If you’re a man, you’re going to go to the man’s locker room, restroom or shower. If you’re a woman, you’re going to go to their appropriate shower,” McCrory said. “No change whatsoever.”
But his opponent Cooper said the law must change.
It writes discrimination into our law and it has been a disaster for our economy,” Cooper said.
“Governor McCrory continues to go across the state telling people that this is not hurting our economy. He attacks businesses who are opposed to it and says that everything is going fine. Governor, what planet are you on?”
