BOOM: After NCAA Ditches NC Over Bathroom Law, NC Sends Epic Item to NCAA

Never in a million years could the National Collegiate Athletic Association have known that their decision to pull seven championship events out of North Carolina would engender such a passionate response. Yet it did.
“This is so absurd it’s almost comical,” the North Carolina Republican Party wrote in a scathing response published Tuesday, a day after the NCAA pulled out of North Carolina as a public repudiation of the state’s law commonly known as HB2.
Passed in March, the law cemented the state’s anti-discrimination measures as the final word. This in turn nullified an ordinance passed a month earlier in Charlotte that had essentially granted men and women the right to use any public bathroom they desired in the name of transgender rights.
“I genuinely look forward to the NCAA merging all men’s and women’s teams together as singular, unified, unisex teams,” the NCGOP’s spokesperson, Kami Mueller, said in the statement. “Under the NCAA’s logic, colleges should make cheerleaders and football players share bathrooms, showers and hotel rooms.”

“This decision is an assault to female athletes across the nation,” she continued. “If you are unwilling to have women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, how do you have a women’s team?”
Her point, and it was a doozy, was that by supporting so-called transgender rights, the NCAA was signaling that gender meant nothing to it. Therefore, it seemed hypocritical for the association to separate its players by gender.
“I wish the NCAA was this concerned about the women who were raped at Baylor,” the statement concluded. “Perhaps the NCAA should stop with their political peacocking — and instead focus their energies on making sure our nation’s collegiate athletes are safe, both on and off the field.”
“Rights” used to refer to people’s God-granted claim to live freely, so long as their actions did not harm others. These days, it means something entirely different.
Because of political correctness, it now apparently means the “right” for a man to don a wig, waltz into a women’s bathroom and scream, “I’m here, and you can’t make me leave!”
Kudos to the Republican legislators in North Carolina for taking a bold stand against this nonsense. As for the NCAA, it might want to consider taking a few classes on basic biology before pulling such outrageous stunts.
