No one missed that the Human Rights Campaign, the largest and most powerful gay lobby in the world, called down unrelenting hell-fire upon the state of North Carolina for their bathroom policy last year. You surely missed that this year, HRC also awarded Walmart, who holds an even more restrictive bathroom policy, its highest gold-star, 100% rating for being a “best place to work for LGBT equality” and overall LGBT friendliness as a corporation. The very same rating they awarded Target.
I explain here in detail how this terribly embarrassing mix-up could have happened. Hint: HRC doesn’t make trans-bathroom access a requirement for earning their 100% LGBT equality rating. True.
This is an important story on this whole issue as we each seek to navigate this issue in our own minds as well as in the public square.
