Just build a wall around those states and pull out all the businesses. I'm sure they can function on a prayer-based economy just fine.
Are there really any "reality states" anymore? Besides the two?

I'm trying to find the specifics on the law and the only thing I could dig up in 5 minutes was that it eliminates a worker's right to sue for discrimination in state court.
Which is a biggie, though I didn't see anything specifically anti-LGBT about it, except some mention about gender on birth certificates?
I'm pretty sure it specifically gets rid of that right only for sexual-orientation discrimination cases, they'll tolerate the coloreds, for now. Also the toilet thing...they're obsessed about it.
basically sounds like it's intended to keep individual counties from being more progressive than the bigot state politicians would like, including setting higher minimum wages.
Pretty much the same as what the rest of Georgia tried to do to Atlanta recently, with Paypal taking a play from the Atlanta film industry's collective playbook.
Dude, the law is specifically based on the bigoted and non-fact-based lie about trans (women) molesting and raping children (girls) and women in the supposed safe zone of bathrooms and changing rooms (despite actually being targeted at both genders of trans people, it's 99% aimed at trans women).
Despite there being literally no case history of this ever having happened in any bathroom ever, because TRANS PEOPLE JUST WANT TO FUCKING PISS AND/OR SHIT, not play into some sick notions that right-wing assholes have of them, just like the vast, vast majority of gay people just want to fucking use the bathroom like anybody else, and it's all the hypocrite closet cases that are obsessed with gloryholes and making foot signals beneath the divider and whatnot.
The law in North Carolina is designed to make it harder for trans people to be in public (especially governmental) spaces. It's designed to shame us into just disappearing to somewhere nobody has to see us or think about us. And given that it's targeted heavily toward children still in school, it's aimed at scaring young trans people into staying in the closet even more than we have tended to be for our own safety.
The only thing keeping it from being the most discriminatory and bigoted piece of legislation in the United States of the last few years is that Kansas decided they'd one-up NC and included bounties being paid to anyone that reports on a trans person being in a bathroom to the police. Despite having no money in their budget for things like, you know, schools.
It's because the right lost the battle against gay marriage, so they're going for what they percieve to be an easier target. Trans people are less numerous and less understood than gay people making them a better target for the religious right to pick on.
Pretty much. We're the hot new target (well, at new levels of attention, anyway, this shit's been around for...ever?).
more like it hits two queer birds with one 'Totally Manly 'IM NOT THINKING ABOUT COCK CONSTANTLY!!' Happy Christian Family Man' rock

Post-citizen democracy. As long as corporations posture progressively our country will be saved!
For large corporations this kind of shit is a nightmare. They develop a blanket code of conduct for the company so they don't get their asses sued by a worker and then shithole-land comes along and now the worker can sue them for trying to prevent the worker from getting them sued like they would be anywhere else in the country.
It just fucks up their legal and it's easier to just not have a branch in special agent asshole world.
Most if not all world-class corporations will take a socially progressive stance to ensure a diverse and inclusive and non-hostile workplace just to protect their bottom lines.

So I guess my state is boycotting that state now.
