|What? Like anyone outside of North Carolina|
knows what the hell a tar heel is anyway...
|Huh? No, they must have won. I mean all|
the monuments in the South seem to-oh...
Yeah, Governor Pat McCrory is suing the Obama administration over what he feels is government overreach. After all, what makes the Justice Department think they can just come in with their jackboots and start bossing the people of North Carolina around? Like, just who do they think they are telling Pat McCrory and the sovereign State of North Carolina who he can and can not systematically discriminate against with humiliating, unenforceable laws in a misguided effort to protect against a nonexistent threat? This kind of Federal tyranny is why the South fought and won the Civil War.

may I see your genital ID?"
Not to be outdone, the Justice Department is suing North Carolina because holy shit you can't go around treating people like that thanks to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and also, you know common human decency. McCrory's beef, expressed via Twitter because I guess that's just how our civilization functions now, is that the DOJ is skipping over legislative process and just willy nilly defending people's rights like jerks and that the suit is to make sure that the state continues to receive federal funding until this is sorted out.
So that's great if you happen to be the the equipment manager for the UNC's basketball team, but less so if you're transgender and just have to pee.

that his mother is all that amazing. I mean her son's kind of a tool.

and you never let us forget it..."
Look, I'm sure state sovereignty is like super-important when it comes to things like interstate commerce and I don't know, picking the state bird but holy shit North Carolina, you're suing for the right to discriminate and the best argument you've got is that the Civil Rights Act doesn't specifically mention transgender people despite them clearly being included in the spirit of the law. So yeah, way to shake that negative southern stereotype of backwards, ignorant bumpkins with an irrational fear of the unfamiliar.

this isn't even in the top 100 and kind of makes you look like assholes.
