HB2 has two major parts: It overturns and bans local statutes that protect LGBTQ people from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. And it prohibits transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that align with their gender identity in schools and government buildings — due to a baseless myth that letting trans people use the bathroom or locker room for their gender identity would lead to men posing as trans to sexually harass and assault women in women’s facilities.

The deal does get rid of the latter: It makes it so state agencies in North Carolina can no longer regulate who uses what bathroom or locker room, effectively ending the ban on trans people using the bathroom or locker room for their gender identity.
