Occasionally Someone In Government Makes A Statement Illustrating The Concept Of Common Sense

North Carolina Lt. Governor Dan Forest posted the following on his website today:

RALEIGH — In light of tonight’s scheduled Charlotte City Council vote on redefining bathroom ordinances, Lt. Governor Dan Forest releases the following statement:

“Girls’ bathrooms are for girls, boys’ bathrooms are for boys. The fact we are even debating this is a sad commentary on where we are as a society.”

I realize that there are children and teenagers who may be confused about their gender. It might not be a bad idea to give them their own bathrooms, but allowing teenage boys (regardless of whether or not they are confused about their gender) into teenage girls’ bathrooms is creating a situation that has risks for beyond the simple sexual confusion of the person using the bathroom. I agree with Lt. Governor Forest’s statement.
