Protecting privacy in two steps

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.
