Caitlyn Jenner would have to use men’s shower in North Carolina, says governor

Caitlyn Jenner is a staunch Republican.

If Caitlyn Jenner is planning on spending time in North Carolina, she might want to shower before she arrives in the Tar Heel state.

The state’s Republican governor says that even a world famous fellow Republican has to adhere to the rules of HB2, the controversial law that requires transgender people to use the bathroom facility matching their gender at birth.

‘If (Jenner) is going to shower at a facility at UNC-Chapel Hill after running around the track, she’s going to use the men’s shower,’ Governor Pat McCrory said during a gubernatorial debate on Tuesday (11 October) against Attorney General Roy Cooper.

McCrory finds himself locked in a tough re-election battle after signing HB2 into law last June.

Since coming out as a transgender woman in 2015, Jenner has staunchly remained Republican despite a party platform that embraces discrimination against LGBTI people.

While her political views have hurt her popularity – the reality show I Am Cait was canceled after two seasons – Jenner has spoken out against discrimination.

Most famously she used the women’s restroom inside Trump Tower without incident.

The building is, of course, owned by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
