Tired of transgender issues

I’m getting so tired of hearing about the transgender issue (“Businesses want All-Star game moved,” July 12). Judging from the media coverage, you’d think half of the population had some kind of issue with their sexual identity. Enough already.

I find it interesting that these “industry leaders” are now urging the NBA commissioner to move the games out of North Carolina because its leaders won’t cave in to their demands to lift their opposition to the ludicrous new anti-discrimination law, like little cry babies in kindergarten.

Why must we bend over backwards for the 0.3 percent of the population? Why can’t they be uncomfortable or embarrassed in a restroom rather than the rest of us? I also find it interesting that the same liberal companies who preach tolerance and whine when they don’t get their way continue to do business with countries who are the worst violators of human rights.

You mean to tell me not allowing transgenders to use the restroom of their choosing is worse than slaughtering female babies, executing political foes, etc? God help our country.
