Curry's On-The-Spot Response to Anti-LGBT Law

Stephen Curry
National Basketball Association's (NBA) perennial all-star Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors grew up in Charlotte and he was asked his opinion of the NBA holding the 2017 All-Stare Game in the city in light of the passing of a strict anti-LGBT law in North Carolina.

His response was pretty much refects what everyone is thinking about those who ignorantly opposed it.

"I know the NBA has a stance on equality and incorporating all the beliefs and people from all sorts of backgrounds," Curry said Friday at the Warriors' shootaround.

"It's interesting how that intersection is with the state law and the NBA having an event there. Hopefully, the right things need to happen that the All-Star Game stays in Charlotte, because that would be huge for the city ... just to show what Charlotte's all about, regardless of where you fall on that law. Hopefully they can figure it out and keep it there. I think it's really important for the city of Charlotte. I'm sure we can figure it out."
There is definitely something "interesting" about the state law in regards to the All-Star Game. Many NBA players has already expressed support to North Carolina and are looking forward to play in that state.

Nobody is being discriminated here. Nobody's rights was violated except for the paranoid transgenders. It's curious that it took some time for the likes of MVP Curry to express the merits of the bill.

Backers of the North Carolina law, which requires people to use public bathrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate rather than their gender identity, say it will protect women and girls from predators. Transgender advocates say that claim is unfounded and ignores a modern understanding of people who identify with a gender other than the one assigned at birth.

North Carolina’s governor and legislature both sued on Monday to protect their law, saying the Justice Department was trying to strike down a "common sense privacy policy" meant to protect the state’s public employees. State officials also said if the Obama administration wants protections for transgender people, it should appeal to Congress to amend existing laws.
