These laws have nothing to do with what the GOP is proclaiming. No one is worried about the safety of children in the restroom. (News flash, they have never been safe there.) Even if you completely ignore the fact that the fictitious scenarios conservatives are using to justify their state sanctioned bigotry have never once
actually occurred; the very fact that they say these laws are to keep little girls safe, but in the same breath they are sending these oh so scary trans people into the restroom with their little boys, proves that “the children” don’t have anything at all to do with it at all.
The only reasons for these laws are bigotry, hatred, and as Alice made very clear, revenge.
