Trans Man Destroys North Carolina’s Dangerous New Anti-LGBT Law In One Brilliant Tweet

North Carolinians responded angrily on social media to Republican-led legislation signed into law on Wednesday effectively blocking local governments in North Carolina from passing anti-discrimination rules that would protect LGBT people and barring protections that allow trans people to use restrooms that correspond to their gender identity.

The bill, which many are calling the “most anti-LGBT bill in the country,” was a direct response to an ordinance by the city of Charlotte that put protections in place to let trans people use restrooms that fit their gender to avoid being bullied and placed in danger.

In response, North Carolina Republican lawmakers decided to introduce a bill that blocks cities from passing LGBT protections, and was signed by North Carolina’s Gov. Pat McCrory.

McCroy attempted to characterize the legislation as bipartisan, but WTVD confirmed the bill was voted for exclusively by Republicans after state Democrats staged a walked out on the legislature during the vote in an unprecedented protest.

“Ordinance defied common sense, allowing men to use women’s bathroom/locker room for instance. That’s why I signed bipartisan bill to stop it,” McCrory tweeted.

One trans man responded to Gov. McCrory’s tweet by illustrating the pit falls of his new law by tweeting a picture of himself and saying: “It’s now the law for me to share a restroom with your wife.”

North Carolinians responded to the bill with outrage on Twitter, using the hashtag #WeAreNotThis.
