Abstract:
House Bill 2 has placed North Carolina at the center of the nation’s culture wars triggering lawsuits, demonstrations, boycotts, and intense controversy. The law's most debated section assigns bathroom access in public buildings according to the biological sex listed on the user's birth certificate. The new law is based on an effort to prevent local governments from becoming too proactive, maintain Republican control of state government, and push against legal transgender equality.

Abstract:
In the debate over House Bill 2, opinions diverge on who is the intimidator. The author talks about why efforts to find a compromise broke down and how the value of freedom versus security played a role. For opponents of the “bathroom bill,” state lawmakers were bullies dictating to local officials what ordinances they could pass and which bathrooms transgender North Carolinians could use in government buildings. For supporters of HB2, out-of-state interests were the bullies who were using boycotts and other pressure to dictate what laws could be passed and what their bathroom policies could be.
