To the Editor:
North Carolina state Sen. Jim Davis, Franklin, in a recent newspaper interview indicated he opposes the repeal of our state's notorious Bathroom Bill since he would never sacrifice our privacy.
I had thought that the rationale behind this law was the oppression and demeaning of transgender persons, so I was very glad to learn that Sen. Davis’ main concern is the privacy issue.
I'm glad because there is a simple, sure-fire, two-step method for ensuring privacy in public restrooms that does not require any government interference:
• If the bathroom has a stall, go into the stall, close the door and latch it.
• If there is no stall, lock the door to the bathroom.
Privacy ensured. Problem solved. And, almost certainly, Sen. Davis’ support for a full and unconditional repeal secured.
