The controversial law that transsexuals in North Carolina required to make use of the public toilet
for the gender that is in their passport, remains in force.

The new Democratic governor Roy Cooper fought the law Wednesday night (local time) without success in the court.

Opponents of the controversial law were previously success when a judge ruled that a university student should let you choose which restroom they want to use. The court relied on a law from 1972 that discrimination on the basis of gender on the state-funded schools prohibits.

President Barack Obama is certain that all students are allowed to choose which toilet they use. Almost half of the states have filed against it a profession.

The debate about transgenderrechten concentrates in the United States, at the point of toilettoegang. Different organisations and artists, including the basketbalbond NBA and Bruce Springsteen, cancelled their planned activities in North Carolina. The debate divides schools, staatsparlementen and courts.
