It was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who said, "One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." And now it is I, who say unto you, "Let's write stuff on the wall while we poop in North Carolina."
It's been about a month since North Carolina's General Assembly passed a bill banning cities and counties from protecting LGBT people from discrimination. Among the many limitations the bill puts on the LGBT community is that public schools will restrict people to the bathroom that coincides with their biological sex, not the gender with which they identify.
Despite boycott threats from PayPal, Lionsgate, the NBA, and Bruce Springsteen, nothing has changed. Lawmakers aren't getting the message. That's because the message about bathroom equality has yet to be taken to the most relevant place of all: the bathroom.
Okay, so I can't actually encourage anyone to vandalize North Carolina public bathrooms. But let's just say you happen to come across some funny bathroom graffiti condemning the recent bill that limits civil rights for LGBT North Carolinians. Please let us know where in North Carolina you discovered it and then post it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BathroomGraffitiNC.
Now go out and do thy bidding. And make sure to wash your hands afterwards.
(Below are some #BathroomGraffitiNC ideas you could stumble upon if you don't have any original ideas.)
