BLOGNorth Carolina Travel Ban? Boycott? When Did Protecting Women and Children’s Privacy Become so Controversial?

By Marissa Mayer Posted on: | April 04, 2016

You may have heard that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo laughably banned all "nonessential travel" to North Carolina. Yes, that is the same governor who recently traveled to a country run by brutal dictators.

The irony is certainly not lost on North Carolina governor Pat McCrory, who appeared on Fox and Friends to discuss Governor Cuomo's announcement. See what he had to say in the clip below.


Last week, ADF Legal Counsel Kellie Fiedorek helped further set the record straight about North Carolina's HB2 and the outrageous responses by many to a bill that is designed to protect the privacy and safety of women and children.

"The companies threatening to boycott North Carolina based on the Privacy Act are really protesting the right of young girls to enjoy privacy and security. The fact that the NBA is publicly opposing a commonsense privacy law, choosing instead to support policies that force women and young girls to undress and shower in the presence of men is both unreasonable and unsafe.  Such groups are seeking to transform our culture into a genderless society in which objective standards of truth and biological reality are made subservient to political correctness and relativistic self-definitions."
