Lt. Governor Dan Forest's Statement on NCAA Decision

Raleigh

"The NCAA's action sends a message to every female athlete and female fan attending their events that their privacy and security in a bathroom, shower or locker room isn't worth the price of a ticket to a ballgame. We have seen the NCAA's attitude towards women before when they stood by and did nothing during the rapes at Baylor. For years, we've seen the NBA turn a blind eye towards women victims of domestic abuse at the hands of their star players. Why should we be surprised now at the NCAA continuing this pattern of discrimination and degradation of women? The line has now been drawn in the sand, first by Hollywood, now by the NBA and NCAA, either accept their 'progressive sexual agenda' or pay the price. North Carolina will not play that game. We value our women too much to put a price tag on their heads."
