North Carolina Sues Obama's Justice Department Over Administration's Civil Rights Challenge to Gender Differentiation Bill

Yes, the genders are different -- for 99.99% of us. I understand, because they won't shut up about it, that for 0.01% of the population gender is an ambiguous and confusing concept, but most people are actually just plain old men and women, and women don't want to go to the bathrooms with a dude taking a dump in the next stall over.

Obama thinks the dude in the next stall has a civil right to take his dump wherever he chooses.

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory filed suit Monday against the Department of Justice in a bid to preserve the state’s controversial “bathroom” law, after the Obama administration said the policy violates the civil rights of transgender people.

The state was facing a Monday deadline set by the administration to respond to its demand that North Carolina either scrap the law or face legal action and risk losing federal funds.

McCrory refused, and instead filed suit.

"The Department’s position is a baseless and blatant overreach," the suit, filed in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina, says. "This is an attempt to unilaterally rewrite long-established federal civil rights laws in a manner that is wholly inconsistent with the intent of Congress and disregards decades of statutory interpretation by the Courts."
