Washington Sues North Carolina Over “Bathroom Law”
The federal government recently filed a lawsuit against North Carolina, attempting to force the state to repeal limits on legal protections for “transgender” people. The new state law requires individuals to use the restroom for the gender indicated on their birth certificate.
At a press conference, Attorney General Loretta Lynch declared, "This is not the first time that we have seen discriminatory responses to historic moments of progress for our nation."
If we really understood what women’s lib entails, we would be horrified at the extent of their aims
From Living With Others (#R4):
“Women’s liberation” is one of the catchphrases that the shallow minded have heard in the street and they repeat to each other. In this country women have more power, have more freedom than anywhere else and this is the place where there's the least need of liberation of women… If we really understood what “women’s lib” entails, we would be horrified at the extent of their aims.
They could force the yeshivas to have a mixed beis hamedrash by the Constitution. A suit could be brought against segregation of the sexes in the synagogue. But not only that, they could bring a suit against segregation in the bathrooms. It’s opening up a Pandora’s box of every kind of corruption. And we see who is backing this: the lowest elements, the scum, the liberal society that is undermining the wellbeing of our country.
It’s one more catchphrase among those bandied today in the street by those who have ruined their own lives, women who have broken homes, women who cannot be married (they don’t fit in anywhere), and also men whose lives have been ruined and now they intend to ruin the lives of everyone else.
