Sexual predators will see this as a chance for fresh victims. ... If one child becomes a victim through this, shame on all of you.

Is it loving to fear our transgender neighbor? Is it loving to fear our transgender neighbor and discriminate against them? I think we know the answer.

Steve Knight

Homosexuality is not the new black. … Homosexuals have not been asked to eat at the back of The Capital Grille.

Gabriel Rogers

Transgender men are men. Transgender women are women. Period. We have a lot of work to do. Start tonight by passing this ordinance.

Connie Vetter

Sexual predators are not waiting on Charlotte City Council to pass a law so they can break a law....Tonight we hope you listen to the facts and not fear.

Scott Bishop

I cannot honestly believe the city of Charlotte is even considering making these changes. ... You are thinking of an agenda that you want to shove down people’s throats.

Robbie Wilson

I remind you that there is no credible evidence of harm caused by passing such an ordinance. … No safety will be compromised. … There is ample evidence of discrimination as represented by some of the views in the room tonight.

Krista Tillman

Are we going to let every and all men into (women’s) restrooms and hope for the best?...This ordinance will compromise the safety of 99.997 percent of the population for a miniscule part of the population.
