I enjoyed the article “Beyond Bathrooms: HB2 Accelerates Changes in Attitudes, Language” [July 27, Xpress] very much. I found myself getting lost in the descriptive terminology, not knowing what they meant, but [the accompanying box containing] “Gender 101” helped.
I am a straight woman with gay and lesbian friends and family as well as transgender friends. I abhor HB2 or any laws passed that discriminate, period!
This article is informative on several levels. Educating in a nonthreatening way is what will help people understand each other better. I am proud of Asheville’s openness, support and stand on these important issues. Hopefully, HB2 will be a thing of the past in the near future!
