    Wow. I‘m taken aback by the nasty comments I‘ve read here. I fully support the corporations‘ stance to make private and public places friendly to all people. I believe they are doing it as a business decision, but it doesn‘t matter, they‘re doing the right thing. I‘m sure a lot of people who have written the ignorant, negative comments would also love to bring back "colored" and "white" bathrooms.

    HR Dept states the "situation" quite clearly. Assisting mentally people doesn‘t help the individual or society.

  • H.R. Department

    Transgenders comprise barely 0.3 percent of the adult population, so these 53 companies‘ claims about a SCOTUS decision on the use of public school bathrooms and showers possibly having a negative impact on their recruitment of top talent is absurd. In fact, such a decision could make it easier to recruit top talent to states that won‘t be tyrannized by an infinitesimally tiny minority and its leftwing politician and media promoters. Surely many top-talent parents of school-age kids would be thrilled to relocate from crazy-blue queer states to more tradition-bound red states.
