It will effectively require all Arizonans to carry a birth certificate if they want to use a public restroom, making it unenforceable.
It will realistically only be used against transgender people, which is selective enforcement against a harmless, struggling community.
It solves no problem. There are no documented incidents of anyone being harmed in this state from a transgender person using a public restroom.
It is a mean-spirited attack on transgender people brought on by CAP as revenge after having lost the Phoenix LTBT-antidiscrimination ordinances fight.
It is unconstitutional per the Romer v. Evans decision to write a law that specifically attacks a minority. This law will be overturned eventually.
