"I have come to the conclusion that there is a great deal of misinformation, misinterpretation, confusion, a lot of passion and frankly, selective outrage and hypocrisy, especially against the great state of North Carolina," stated McCrory. more >>
The Pascack Valley Regional School District in northern New Jersey voted Monday to adopt a policy allowing students who identify as transgender to use restrooms and locker rooms based on their gender identity instead of their sex.
