A North Carolina law just made it illegal for a transgender individual to use the public bathroom that does not correspond to his or her birth sex.

The city of Charlotte passed nondiscrimination laws that involved “public accommodation,” referring to equal access to gender-specific areas.

In response, lawmakers passed what has become known as “the bathroom bill” on March 23 to override Charlotte’s nondiscrimination ordinances.

The bathroom bill has been used to target transgender people as a means of prohibiting misconduct in public bathrooms and has lead to more states considering passing similar bathroom laws.

Here are three reasons why you should not be in favor of this kind of discriminatory law.
