Scrubbing These "Bathroom Bills"

Today, the state of North Carolina and the United States government launched a hotly contested legal battle over who can use certain bathrooms, giving new meaning to the phrase "frivolous lawsuit." North Carolina argues that the federal government should basically "mind its own business" and let the state do as it pleases. The United States Government, on the other hand, says that North Carolina's anti-transgender legislation constitutes illegal discrimination that "provides no benefits to society and all it does is harm innocent Americans." What's all the fuss about anyway?
