People who voted Republican in NC rewarded with boys in girls' bathrooms

Republican voters in North Carolina are being treated to a special gift: the Republican legislature is passing a bill that will let mentally ill and just plain perverted boys share bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms with girls, and the outgoing Republican governor promises to sign it.  When Governor Pat McCrory was defeated for re-election by a narrow margin, the liberal media repeatedly stated that it was because McCrory signed a bill requiring boys to use only boys' bathrooms.  Are you following so far?

So the Republican legislature, fearing that the "boys restricted to boys' bathroom" issue will be used against them in the future, is passing a bill that in effect will allow boys to go wherever they will.  Ostensibly, it is part of a deal under which the city of Charlotte will repeal a bill that allowed boys to peep into girls' bathrooms if they claim, in their minds, that they are girls, too.  With the Charlotte rule repealed, Republicans maintain that there is no need for the state legislation, which limits boys to boys' bathrooms.  The very obvious truth, of course, is that once the state law is repealed, liberal localities will once again provide cover (ha ha) for mentally ill boys who claim they are girls and want to undress with the best of them.

To be fair, the gay mafia came out in force against North Carolina once McCrory signed the original bill protecting girls' bathrooms:

Bruce Springsteen canceled a concert there. The NBA and the NCAA relocated major games and tournaments out of the state.

Perhaps most devastating for McCrory, some of the biggest names in business sports also came out against the law. PayPal pulled out of a plan to expand in Charlotte, just weeks after McCrory publicly revealed it. The chief executives of Apple, Google, Hilton and Starbucks wrote an open letter to the governor criticizing the law.

But Apple and Hilton (whether Paris or Perez) were not the problem; McCrory was.  If he had given a full-throated defense of the commonsense nature of the law, he could have won re-election.  But he acted as though he was ashamed of the very law he signed and gave his Democratic opponent a free ride.

Do a majority of North Carolinians really want boys in girls' bathrooms?  I don't believe it.  And yet because McCrory, and the spineless Republicans, ran from the issue like scalded dogs, they became, in the words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, "the very thing they set out to defeat."

If Southern Republicans in a reasonably conservative state fold on boys in girls' bathrooms, what will any Republican stand firm on anywhere when it comes to the social re-engineering of our lives?  Democrats propose radicalism and immediately say their radicalism is the new normal; Republicans keep silent and act fearful, and this is the result.  Porky's, a scandalous film of its time showing boys peeping into a girls' shower, is the new normal, except now the boys are not just peeping into the girls' shower, but actually in there with them.  And if the girls object, the girls will be the ones arrested.
