    Leave it to a few law makers to fuck it up for everyone.

    Like Brad said, non trans people who are indifferent to us, or trans people in particular, the majority of people don't benefit from this.

    I do feel bad for those the nice LGBT and non-LGBT allies/indifferent people who this will affect. Because their government decided to be assholes they are now losing future jobs that many of the citizens needed.

    269 authors and illustrators of children’s books have signed a letter calling for the immediate repeal of HB2.

    The letter, which was posted on the School Library Journal website, slj com, said the 269 signees are “disappointed and angered by the reprehensible legislation” signed into law by Gov. Pat McCrory. They called for repeal of what they called a hateful piece of legislation.

    Signers included authors Rick Riordan(Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series) , Jeff Kinney (Percy Jackson & the Olympians series) and Veronica Roth (Author of Divergent trilogy, Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant)

    Text from the site w/ the part of the text of the letter.......
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The letter, a portion of which appears below, and complete list of signatories is being formally released by School Library Journal.

    "As artists, we strive to create books that promote acceptance of all people regardless of race, religion, or gender identity. We will continue to do so; however, we cannot and will not support a state government that promotes discrimination. Each one of us will have to consider our participation in conferences and festivals in North Carolina while this law is in place. But you have our word that we will never abandon our thousands and thousands of readers in North Carolina. We stand with those who share our guiding principles and fundamental beliefs of equality, inclusion, and fair treatment. Thus, we will continue to visit your schools and libraries. We will spread kindness and inspire compassion and hope, as we believe books, in their best moments, always have and always will."

    If the lawmakers want it so bad, can they just have an old guy fondle them in their own bathrooms and stop shoving their fetishes down our throats?
