Did you notice that the 023 NBA All Star game was in Utah, which has among the most LGBT UN-friendly laws in America.
NBA moves 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte over HB2 bill
The NBA is moving the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte, North Carolina, because of the league's objection to the state's House Bill 2, which limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the state.
"Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change," the league said. "We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view.
"Our week-long schedule of All-Star events and activities is intended to be a global celebration of basketball, our league, and the values for which we stand, and to bring together all members of the NBA community -- current and former players, league and team officials, business partners, and fans. While we recognize that the NBA cannot choose the law in every city, state, and country in which we do business, we do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2."
The bill, also called The Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which was signed into law earlier this year by McCrory, requires transgender people to use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates. The law applies only to bathrooms in government buildings, public schools and public universities. It does not apply to private universities, such as Duke. Private companies are allowed to implement any policy they choose.
A provision of the original bill also excluded gender identity and sexual orientation from statewide anti-discrimination protections. McCrory recently signed legislation that restored the state's original nondiscrimination protections removed by HB2.
That was the NBA six years before the NBA, without a care in the world, played its game in extremely "transphobic" Utah.
All that's to illustrate that, for whatever reason, the trans political agenda is not as close to mainstream as it once was.
Who knows how much permanent damage Anheuser-Busch has done to itself by turning to Dylan Mulvaney to offend its fratty customer base. But, at least as big a story for the woke LGBT gang is how playing the 023 All-Star Game in Utah happened without, as the song says, "a discouraging word."
isle educated me earlier today by informing me that Target has gender-affirming biffies. There's no Targets close enough to me to make shopping at one practical.
But, let me say this about that, and let me make this perfectly clear. No corporation considering a similar decision in 023, would go the Target way.
I still don't understand the Bud Light outrage. And, the NBA's backing off from gender equality surprises me.
What I know is that this ain't 2017 anymore...that traditional American values are rapidly reasserting themselves.
