It flies over their heads. These laws (such as HB2) are proactively proscribing transgendered persons from using the restrooms they previously had been using. If there was ever a political issue dominated by truly irrational fear it is this. I have asked for statistical proof that allowing trans persons to use the restrooms of their choice has increased child molestation; or for proof that laws like HB2 reduce sexual crimes against children/women. All you ever get is responses like "durrr, it is common sense, why do you ask for proof?". Unbelievable.
