NC Lt. Governor Responds To Cooper’s Non-Discrimination Executive Order


Lt. Governor Dan Forest issued the following statement Thursday afternoon following Governor Cooper’s executive order Wednesday on anti-discrimination.

“Governor Cooper’s Executive Order once again opens the bathroom stall for those who would seek to do women and children harm while falsely claiming they are transgender. While I take at face value the Governor’s intent to help transgender people use the bathroom of their identity, his order creates a legal loophole that will be exploited by non-transgender pedophiles, stalkers and perverts. All bathrooms at state rest areas, parks and museums will now be fertile ground for sexual deviants who will falsely claim to be transgender to gain protected access to our women and children.”


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — North Carolina has a new non-discrimination law, thanks to an executive order from Governor Roy Cooper.

The order bans discrimination on the grounds of race, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity. It also requires companies doing business with the state to do the same.
