So, there has been an incident in the Charlotte-Mecklenberg School District.
A trans boy who is a student at Olympic High School had to use the restroom. The school district has plans for a designated facility, but it is not ready yet, so the trans students used the boy's restroom. As the student pulled his pants down to use the toilet, a cisgender student walked in on him.
That student saw the image and immediately walked out.
It travels with me.
I abide where there is a fight against wrong.

From The Arizona Republican: A Letter Forwarded For Mother Jones
Probably a preview of what's in store for the Philadelphia Dem Convention.
This group piece is cross-posted from a special group collective piece begun and posted by the wonderful UnaSpenser, an Anti-Capitalist Meetup administrator at TOP. The introduction and first contributor portion are by UnaSpenser. After her leading portion are the contributions of other Anti-Capitalist Meetup group administrators who were able to participate. We hope you will join us if this is your cup of tea every Sunday night at 6 pm Eastern Time.
NC Gov. Pat McCrory was interviewed on NPR the other day and managed to express the idea that passage of Hate Bill 2 was the fault of transgender people.
If we had not pushed for equal rights and access to public accommodations, then conservative forces would not have been forced to take them away from us.
He and other conservatives were also vehemently upset over AG Loretta Lynch's comparison of the current state of affairs to Jim Crow.

Chanute, Kansas - Mother Jones Passing Through on Way to Kansas City
I did not not think they would lose their composure so quickly but they muist be willing to risk it. Nevada was the turning point I think.
The tactics used there foretell what is coming. Look for it to get much worse. They fear the massive turn out expected at the Philadelphia convention and will make it clear that you go there at your own risk.
I apologize ahead of time for the somewhat lightweight diary, but I decided to make it a diary rather than a comment b/c I want a larger number of people to see it and help me speculate on this question.
If you were paying attention tonight ( and this morning, it was a loooong day) you had the terrifying privilege of watching democracy be stolen. Not gently. Not with the slow drain of disenfranchisement, nor the creeping hand in a ballot box.
It was public. It was on Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, Periscope and god knows where else. It was blatent. It was shameless.
Nevada showed that are our fears are justified. Our anger is justified.
I'm not sure WaPo would let anyone run the story nowadays. It's too hard-hitting on someone other than Trump, who is beefing with Jeff Bezos/WaPo (New reality show? BATTLE OF THE BILLIONAIRES!)
