I'm pretty sure that's not actually a right.

You did see the smiley face denoting sarcasm, no? I support state based voting to allow or disallow transgender use of public restrooms. I like my laws based on physical evidence, not how a person "feels". What if I feel black? Can I get some of that sweet affirmative action based on that feeling?;-)

You are a idiot if you want us to believe this was just a "bathroom" law.  The bathroom part was less than 10% of the law, the remainder is where the bigotry lies.

 

So don't kid yourself it is a so call bathroom law, it had nothing to do with bathroom in reality

That's the part of the law that is troublesome to me. I fully support rights for gay marriage if the gov't must stick its tyrannical hands into even mostly religious and emotion based subjects. Equality for all! ;-) If you do not want to give out gay marriage licenses, than find a new job. I do support private business rights to deny service FOR ANY REASON, as long as they are indeed private.  Freedom for all! The Young Turks lost their mind over the bathroom issue. Truly hysterical!

As a tax-paying working "sucker", I'm okay with that.  I'd be even happier if we extended that to everyone getting "free" tax-payer funded healthcare.

Much appreciated.;-) I would be more ok with gov't based healthcare than the crony "buy or suffer the gov't's wrath" deal that we have now.

Is it hateful to make a law that says a person who has a penis at birth must use the bathroom designed for people with penises? If not, are not we violating the rights of woman to not have penises in their bathrooms?;-)

I feel slidecage's pain. I recently retired early from a fire department, have a nice nest egg of savings and stock dividends and profits to live off of due to decent financial planning and impulse control.  I plan to surf and play tennis as much as possible while other suckers my age are working. The crazy part is that the ACA has bombarded me with letters since my employer paid healthcare is over. They are desperate for people to sign up since the program is running so far below expectations. I do not want their coverage due to ideological differences in the plan (gov't forces you to buy product from private company....freedom and liberty indeed...). They will give me 283 dollars a month in subsidy if I do not work and just collect my dividends. I have to take this deal or pay about a 900 dollar penalty according to their figures they sent me. So all you suckers who work and are paying taxes are giving me, an able bodied person, "free" health insurance that I am forced to accept or pay the penalty. The gov't has forced me to suckle at their teat. Quite hilarious actually.;-) I might actually research the criteria to legally obtain as many forms of gov't welfare as possible and start exploiting the system. It will make for a great book.;-) It reminds me of a fire dept saying, "Stop fighting the funk", which basically meant to stop trying to educate the ignorant citizens  that 911 is for life threatening emergencies, not for headaches, toothaches, and basic tummy aches. It was much easier to just transport the dummies than try to reason with them, even though it meant that grandma down the street who is having an actual heart attack is left to wait for an ambulance much farther away. Hospital and transport bills did not dissuade them because they do not pay in any case. So I just might start soaking up all this super generous "free" money and other resources that the gov't wants to give me by taking it by threat of force from others who actually earned it....I mean, why fight the funk?;-)
