What are all the big liberal corporations trying to protect in North Carolina?

So, North Carolina passed a law that says that in the state of North Carolina, people with male equipment have to use a male bathroom, and people with female equipment have to use a female bathroom.

Lots of corporations have come out against this law, as AMAC explains:

Here’s a list of companies that have come out against the newly signed law:

Salesforce, Bank of America, American Airlines, Microsoft, Apple, RedHat, PayPal, Google, Lowe’s Home Improvement, NBA, NCAA, MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), Disney, ESPN, Marvel, Facebook, Charlotte Motor Speedway, BB&T Ballpark, Biogen, DOW Chemical Company, Citrix, Bayer, NC Policy Watch, IBM, Burt’s Bees, Duke University, Wake Forest University, SAS Institute.

And here is one typical response from one company – Pay Pal. The leftist Washington Post reports:

The backlash against a North Carolina law that bars local governments from extending civil rights protections to gay and transgender people continued Tuesday, with PayPal saying it is abandoning plans to expand into Charlotte in response to the legislation.

This decision came just weeks after PayPal, the California-based online payments firm spun off from eBay, said it would open a global operations center in Charlotte, a move that state officials said would bring millions to the local economy and employ 400 people.

I note that Pay Pal does business in many, many countries where homosexuality is illegal, and many, many other countries where homosexuality is punishable by death. They aren’t making a fuss about those countries, though. They’re just making a fuss in North Carolina. That’s called hypocrisy, and most big corporations are actually like Pay Pal – not conservative in any way shape or form.

The WaPo article also notes:

This law could also cost the state federal funding. At least five federal agencies are debating whether to withhold money because of the law.

So, that’s what happens when you pay taxes to the federal government, and why we need to get the government out of anything that is not explicitly laid out in the Constitution.

The champion of the big pro-gay corporations

Anyway, now that we understand what those big corporations stand for, let’s take a look at who they are enabling. Let’s go to Canada, which is further down the road of sexual anarchy and moral relativism, and see how things are working out there.

Here is the article from the Toronto Sun:

A sexual predator who falsely claimed to be transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters was jailed indefinitely on Wednesday.

Justice John McMahon declared Christopher Hambrook — who claimed to be a transgender woman named Jessica — was a dangerous offender.

The judge said he imposed the indefinite prison sentence because there’s a great risk that Hambrook will commit more sex crimes and require strict supervision if he returns to the community.

[…]He noted the Montreal man, 37, attacked four vulnerable females between the ages of five and 53 in Montreal and Toronto over the past 12 years.

How could a man dress up as a woman and be allowed into a women’s space with women’s bathrooms and women’s showers?

Life Site News explains:

Ontario amended its Human Rights Code to make “gender identity” and “gender expression” prohibited grounds for discrimination in 2012.

[…]Family advocates argued at the time that the NDP sponsored bill would create a legal right for a man who calls himself ‘transgender’ to use rooms and facilities intended for women so as to exploit women.

The bill was subsequently dubbed the “bathroom bill” by its critics.

And what did the transgender man do with that law? This:

[The] Court also heard evidence of Hambrook terrorizing a deaf woman living in the shelter. “The accused grabbed the complainant’s hand and forcibly placed it on his crotch area while his penis was erect,” court heard.

The same deaf women reported that Hambrook would peer at her through a gap between the door and its frame while she showered.

And you can see similar problems already in liberal states like Washington:

In 2012 a college in Washington state decided it would not prevent a 45-year-old man who presents himself as a transgender “female” from lounging naked in a women’s locker room in an area frequented by girls as young as six. Teenage girls on a high school swim team were using the facilities when they saw “Colleen” Francis deliberately exposing male genitalia through the glass window in a sauna. Police told one outraged mother that the university could not bar the biological male from the premises.

The Daily Wire reports that the University of Toronto, which is a city in the province of Ontario, is now partially reversing itself on their transgender agenda:

The University is temporarily changing its policy on gender-neutral bathrooms after two separate incidents of “voyeurism” were reported on campus September 15 and 19. Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered.

Conservatives like me try to say that it’s a bad situation when men can walk into women’s change rooms, and walk around naked near women who are showering, going to the bathroom or changing clothes. But the big corporations disagree, they want biological men in women’s spaces, and all the better if clothes are coming on and off.  When the big corporations make these sorts of stands in favor of “inclusiveness” and “diversity”, it’s important to know what it is they really value. And what they don’t value, too.

In a previous post, I explained that the lead architect (pictured above) of the Charlotte legislation that allowed men to walk around naked in women’s bathrooms and showers was himself on a sex-offender registry. And that’s where all of these big corporations out to be put as well. On the sex-offender registry.

  1. Quite right – nobody is questioning who’s running this show. And everyone makes out you’re a bigot if you bring up this sort of objection.

    They’ve clearly all drunk the Kool-Aid.

    The only hope for some common sense is that it will take a few (rather than many) incidents of this kind to expose the darkness.

  2. We all hear so much about “separation of church and state” but it sounds like “separation of church and enterprise” is much more of an issue. Why can’t the government stand up to Paypal and set a marker? If these companies know that they can bully they will keep doing it but if there is push-back they might think twice. After all a restructuring of business plans isn’t necessarily going to be cheap financially.

  3. Perhaps an additional lessons from this is that while limited government and free enterprise may give the individual some protection from actions of the state, non-state bodies can also be oppressive, so don’t look at the political system as a panacea.

  4. I’m curious. If these companies are serious about threatening boycotts, why can’t North Carolina hold their feet to the fire? Pass legislation banning their products and services. It seems a company like Coca Cola, if told to take their Coke products, Minute Maid, etc. off the shelves, no advertising, etc. and be gone from within the state lines, would probably start to think twice about shooting their mouth off. And I think North Carolina would have a leg to stand on. Bullying, extortion, blackmail, whatever you want to call it, is usually illegal.

    And that overrated Springsteen guy? There’s got to be some kind of fraud involved there! Protect your citizens!
