Oxford, Alabama rescinds transphobic bathroom bill


Oxford, Alabama has repealed its local ordinance to fine people for using the “wrong” washroom.

Council members voted 3-2 on Wednesday to rescind its controversial restroom measure, which had made it a misdemeanor — punishable by a $500 fine or six months in jail — to use a public bathroom differing from one’s birth gender.

Looks like the Supreme Court is getting through to people. Eventually.

    And yet, NC governor McCrory and the NC legislature are digging in their heels regarding HB2. A smackdown is inevitable, and the citizens of the state are the ones who are going to be hurt.
